Media Mondays: Hulu Desktop

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

If you have a laptop or computer near your TV, hate paying for cable, and have a way to hook up your computer to the TV – it is time you check out Hulu Desktop. I downloaded Hulu Desktop, hooked up my MacBook Pro to my TV (DVI to HDMI), and within a few minutes was watching episode 2 of 24 – and was able to use the remote that came with my computer to boot! You can use Hulu Desktop to view TV shows, movies, trailers, etc and you can even use your Hulu account to queue up shows/movies... Read More » Read more

Media Mondays: Terminator Salvation

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I was a die hard Terminator fan back in the 1990s. My sister and I watched the first two movies quite a few times on VHS. I have every edition of T2 on DVD and when I went to Penn State back in 1995 – I had already hung up 3 T2 posters in my dorm room before my roommate showed up. Let’s just say I am a hardcore fan. When my sister and I heard T3 was coming out – I made arrangements to fly to her house so we could see it in the theatre opening night. We... Read More » Read more

Media Mondays: RipIt

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

My son is a super fan of the movie Wall-E and when I tried to rip it for my iPhone and his iTeddy – using Handbrake the entire movie was out of sequence which even though did not seem to phase E, it bothered me to no end that my son was watching a completely scrambled movie. I did some research and found that other people had this same issue with Disney movies in particular and by using a little app called RipIt – the movie would be available in the correct order. As advertised, the application is really simple... Read More » Read more

Bondathon

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Ahh yes…another Thanksgiving has come and gone. Thanksgiving would not be complete without some stuffing balls, some sort of family disfunction and, James Bond. This year was no exception. The stuffing balls were amazing, once again. Not really sure what to say about the family dysfunction…there is always something in the air…but at least I put in a good 15 hours (at least) watching the Bondathon. Waking up to a James Bond movie…going to sleep with another…now that is what I call Thanksgiving! I ended up doing a lot of work over the long weekend, but Bond was always on...

What the Bleep Do We Know?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I know that I was blown away after seeing “What the Bleep Do you We Know?“. A co-worker had recommended this documentary to me after she saw it in the theatre, but lame me, never saw it…until last night. I am the last person to show interest in physics. Anyone that knows me, knows I am/was not a fan of physics (as in studying) and would smile at the fact I have the word “physics” in a blog entry. After watching this documentary, I am tempted to start reading more about quantum physics. So, next time you are in need... Read More » Read more

Fahrenheit 9/11

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

This weekend I saw Michael Moore’s latest film Fahrenheit 9/11. I cannot remember a movie that struck so many emotions in a long time. The first few scenes caused tears to run down my face, later I was so frustrated I felt like I had a responsibility to my country to stand up and fight…to get our country “back”. I then cried some more, and then felt hopeful when the audience clapped and cheered as the credits appeared on the screen. I would recommend every person who is of voting age to see this film. At the very least you... Read More » Read more
