Blackjack App by TapTapBoom

175x175bb

Ok. So Vegas can be tough. Watching all that money go away time and time again. Thinking your next bet will be the big win you for which you have been dreaming.

This Blackjack app allows you to play and bet big without the cash loss, or the dream dying.

Be careful, it’s addictive…perhaps intentionally.

However, for the novice or seasoned players it offers a lot of fun. It also gives the players a chance to learn and try doubling, splitting, and the ever-so-risky bet of “all in”.

It’s also free.

There are ways you can plus up your experience by paying money for add ons, or other location Blackjack tables (this initial casino is based in London). Other casino options include: Macau, Monacco, Paris, and Las Vegas.

Really fun.

SYTYCD Season 14

SYTYCD_Season14_1200x1200_1

So happy to report that one of my favorite shows, So You Think You Can Dance, has returned for Season 14 better than ever.

Last year they changed formats by allowing very young dancers to compete. While I support the arts and endeavors of younger dancers, this was a successful approach. Honestly, I stopped watching the show entirely.

This year, I reluctantly started watching again. Much to my surprise, they seemed to have breathed new life into the series. The talent is incredible and they have given the All-Stars a more prominent role.

Now, when the aspiring dancers audition, they do so in front of their peers. The energy is different, and it seems the performers are bringing their very best to impress the professionals.

An exampe of this fresh take can be seen in this opener for the “Academy”, replacing the Las Vegas concept, with an academy location.

Take a look below at the exciting outdoor dance.

Bravo SYTYCD! You’re back!!!

Baby Driver

baby-driver-poster-700x1038

Baby Driver, a new film by Edgar Wright, is one of the best films of the year. It tells the story of Baby (Ansel Elgort) who is the getaway driver from bank robbers. It’s also a love story.

The twist on this story is the character’s use of music, which he uses to score the soundtrack of his life. I’ve never seen such creative use of music and sound in a film before. It almost crosses the bridge into being a musical. The songs are integrated into the film, filming choregraphed, and even the dialogue has a specifc cadence.

Also starring Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, and John Hamm.

There is so much thought and care that goes into this suprising, action-packed, and moving film.

Simon’s Cat

widget01v1-e1496243861915

Simon’s Cat is an animated series created by Simon Tofield. It was first seen online in a film titled Cat Man Do, but can now be seen in books, games, and comic strips (according to the website).

The series first caught my attention on Facebook. Being a cat owner I immediately started following the series. Having 3 cats of our own, it’s really funny to see common wild behaviors played out.

It’s clever and kind of awesome how it’s simply drawn, and yet full of heart, and truth, and meows.
