"Lost" The TV Series... It's Never Too Late

I have heard of the TV Series about 4-5 years ago from my husband. At that time my babies were still what you call in 'growing pains'  all four of them so I was a busy wreck too. I sometimes could not remember if I have eaten dinner or I had taken a shower the day before. He wanted to watch it with me but I just could not. Now, I love my husband and all but I just could not find the time, or spare time to watch something that was named "LOST"...I was already almost lost, and I was in my own home!

About four weeks ago, thanks to NETFLIX, my husband popped the question. He is the one who introduces me to all kinds of TV shows that he finds interesting, one of which was "The Story of Heisenberg"...which that's the alias we say in front of the kids for "Breaking Bad". I started watching with him the first two seasons but I bailed out because of school and I promised to resume it again on my own time. "Mad Men" is one TV series that I finished with him till the end because I just had to! I fell in love with Don Draper! Another one is Frank Underwood- "House of Cards", I don't love him, but I have a fascination with his character.

But, moving on; my husband popped the question at the right time. When are we going to watch "Lost"? I has been a long time, we don't have to wait season after season in Netflix, all of them are there. All six years! Well, then...Hello Jack! Or maybe Howdy, Sawyer....or Hey, Dude!
Oh my, my precious time! I'm hooked! I love some characters and I hate some, not really hate...almost hate, well not really. I could tell anybody on and on about John Locke...or how I'm fascinated with Mr. Eko, or how I look forward in every episode what new nickname is Sawyer going to come up with. From Captain Falafel... to Mr. Clean! How Michael and Jin has that kind of relationship...How I hated Shannon and Jin at first....oh my, as I said I could talk about my favorite characters forever.

Ok. Time to check my Neurobiology...I have to finish a report on Jean-Dominique Bauby about his amazing book The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Till then....oh blog of mine! :-)

A New Gmail?

According to Mashable:

Leaked screenshots of a new web interface for Gmail reveal that Google may be quietly testing a major design overhaul. The pictures, which were first published on Geek, show a collection of potential new features, though the screenshots haven't been verified.

In My Dreams

counting the months...

La mer
Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d'argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie

La mer
Au ciel d'été confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergère d'azur

Près des étangs
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
Ces oiseaux blancs
Et ces maisons rouillées

La mer
Les a bercés
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d'une chanson d'amour
La mer
A bercé mon coeur pour la vie

Thursday, May 8, 2014 it like Gold?

     4K TV- that's the new b**ch these days. I read somewhere that "Breaking Bad" is going 4K. Not to mention Netflix' "House of Cards" just went 4K also. I was wondering, what is that? Are they going gold? What's next...14 K, then 18, 22 and 24k? Wow!   

So I looked this up, this 4K. Well- I was introduced to UHD (Ultra High Definition) and FUHD (Full Ultra High Definition), forgive me if I forgotten some other...maybe EFUHD (Extreme Full Ultra....whatever). Our TV have evolved from humongous to very thin and very light skinny- starving pale piece of wall ornament while we evolved into full, extra full, extreme full piece of couch ornaments! Pardon my language. My youngest tells me that I'm not obese...he said it in the most loving way, "Mommy, you're just THICK!"   

So what does it do? Or what is it exactly? It gives us four times the picture resolution of 1080p Full HD, give and take...about twice the horizontal and vertical resolution of the 1080p HDTV format, with four times as many pixels overall. Ok! We covered the basics. What does it do and what is it exactly, I ask? Well, if you understand what it said on the first few lines of this paragraph then I really don't need to tell you what it will do to your tv and movie watching enjoyment. But if you're like me, (actually I understand a little bit because I had to learn that on my Programming 101 about resolutions, monitors and pixels...etc); nevertheless if you don't get it, welcome to the rest of humankind who buy stuff that looks cool but does not really know what it does, really!
So now, I'm finally going to see my favorite actors' pimples, not to mention some boogers to go with it too! Now it will be clear to me how many grey hairs does George Clooney has, or I can now show my youngest son (who is a big fan of Nicholas Cage) that he's really wearing a taupe! Isn't that awesome, or what?! Technology, technology technology...what will we be without you!
Well, I told myself...we are technology and gadget lovers so I decided to do a little research about 4K TVs. My husband always tells me, all the time to research it first before even considering to buy anything. Would you believe I found just the right place,  AMAZON  has it! The reviews were very helpful and it really convinced me to give this a try, it's only $40,000.00. My husband will be pissed off when he find's out I spent the down payment for a new house for this amazing 4K TV, but when he read the reviews, he will understand!!!
