At times difficult to follow because of the imperfect subtitles that lagged the dialog by about two seconds, this was an interesting story of a quiet, self-dubbed "mysterious" guy who, through dissatisfaction with his high ranking job as an insurance investigator, starts to really live his life rather than float along.  Though very slow, I really enjoyed it.

Thanks to Hulu.com for sharing it :-)

Helping to make DrupalEasy again

Tags: 

The Most Excellent gentlemen Ryan Price and Mike Anello had me on their DrupalEasy.com podcast again this week. The main theme of the show was Drupal conferences - they discussed DrupalCon Paris which they both attended while I covered the regional DrupalCamp Atlanta, followed up with an announcement of the forthcoming DrupalCamp Florida 2010. Additionally for their Pick of the Week segment I highlighted the pretty great Taxonomy Manager module which I've used to manage major taxonomy changes without loosing track / going crazy. Thanks for having me on again, guys!

Castle

Having seen him in Firefly / Serenity, Slither and some other movies over the years, I must admit that I immediately gravitate to any TV show or movie that stars Nathan Fillion.  The TV show just starting its second season, Castle, is no different: Fillion plays a detective-story author living in New York who works his contacts to work hand-in-hand with an NYCPD detective on various cases while he uses the "experience" as research material for his new books.  The deal with the NYCPD obviously brings with it an ongoing tension with his pseudo-partner, but so long as he's best friends with the mayor and, to a degree, the department chief, he continues to do his thing, getting in the way but always manage to make himself invaluable in aiding to solve the various crimes.  Good stuff, go watch it!

Making the site look more purdy

After ages of just using the Zen theme because I thought some day I'd get down 'n dirty with the CSS, I decided that it was foolish to think I'd some day get to build my own theme and picked an off-the-shelf theme from drupal.org. After testing a few different ones I settled on the Sky theme, which is flexible enough for what I need right now, other than a small adjustment to make the site slogan fit underneath the site name rather than pushed down underneath it.

Stardust

Book/Novelization: 

Though apparently very different from the book (so my wife tells me, I haven't read it yet), Stardust is a really great romantic fantasy adventure loosely based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name. Telling the tale of a certain Tristan Thorn and his week long trek into a hidden inner world for what started out as a quest to obtain a fallen star for the young lady he fancies, it quickly turns into much more, something richer and more meaningful. Along the way Tristan and his companion, Yvaine, encounter lots of unique characters, most notably an evil witch exquisitely played by Michelle Pfeiffer and a pirate / entrepreneur played by Robert De Niro in what is definitely one of the most unusual roles I've seen him in. One of my all-time favorites, and a movie my wife and I re-watch relatively often, we enjoy it that much.
