A Killing on the Cape

171030_vod_killing_cape_16x9_992.jpg

A Killing on the Cape is a six-episode ABC Radio podcast and an ABC News “20/20” documentary.  It tells the story of the murder of Christa Worthington, a fashion writer, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

The story begins with Christa being found stabbed in her house with her 2 year old daughter by her side.  It’s the first murder case in 30 years in the area. And the story that unfolds is stranger than fiction.

Totally compelling and unique in that it combines a podcast with a documentary.

The podcast can be found via iTunes, and the documentary can be found below.

MoviePass

moviepass (1)

MoviePass does feel too good to be true. So, I’ll say that upfront. However, for $9.95 a month you get a movie a day at participating movie theatres. Cannot repeat movies, but it’s basically amazing.

You sign up, download the app, wait for your card to come in the mail. Once all this in in place you can start selecting movies when you get within 100 yards of the theatre you choose.

Select movie and time.

Confirm.

Go to the box office.

They swipe your card.

They hand you your ticket.

And you’re good to go!

It’s so exciting!!!

Blink

BLINK_Logo

From the blinkcincinati.com website: BLINK, October 12th to the 15th 2017, is expected to be one of the largest light, art and projection mapping events in the nation. The four-day event will feature large-scale projection mapping installations, murals, urban artscapes, media light and interactive art in Cincinnati, OH. BLINK will span 20 city blocks, from Cincinnati’s Banks to Findlay Market. Food and beverages will also be available. BLINK is free and open to the public – no tickets are required.

Had the fortuitous opportunity to witness this event on a recent visit to the Cincinnati area. My Aunt Kathy was determined to show me this and experience it herself. It was really cool and would seem to be the kind of event cities all over the world would like to have.

It is this massive digital projection art installation filled with incredible moving images and inspirational and thought provoking content. It really is simple in concept and epic in scope. Take a look at the videos and stories below for more information on this cool event.

Stitch Fix

409084LOGO

From Wikipedia: Stitch Fix is an online subscription and personal shopping service in the USA. It was founded by Katrina Lake in 2011.

From my Mother’s suggestion I just recently gave Stitch Fix a try. I’d always dreamed of having a personal stylist, but that was always going to be too much money. Stuff of dreams…

As it turns out, Stitch Fix cleverly makes this dream a possibility. While you’ve got to consider you are still going to pay for nice clothes, it takes some of the drudgery out of in store shopping.

You sign up and complete a profile with all your color, size, and style choices. You also pick the frequency of shipments based on your need.

Then, their stylist puts together looks for you based on all the factorsl, and any other information you share about your clothing needs.

The items arrive at your house, you try them on, keep what you want, return the rest in a pre-addressed shipping bag.

My first experience was fun. While I am only keeping 2 items out of 5, it was interesting to have someone else bring their perspective to my wardrobe.

New York Times

New-York-Times-Logo

The New York Times.

Had the fortunate opportunity in my life to live in NYC. While there the New York Times is arguably the only way true new yorkers get their news.

What I’m excited about is The New York Times really is a global leader in news. As much as we have been hearing attacks towards the news media, they really are the pillar of freedom and the First Amendment to the Constitution.

And worthy of our support.
