CTHD Sequel February 2, 2016

Hadn’t heard about this until today, even though the trailer’s been out for almost 2 months. Yes, Netflix is releasing a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on February 26. For a guy like me (total wuxia fan boy), this is huge news. The rest of you probably don’t see it as a life-changer like I do, but surely it’ll have something for everybody. Like tons of nameless minions getting cut down and wossum swordy type stuff.

Plus, Michelle Yeoh.

Anyhow, only available on Netflix

This time we’re taking some advice from the Japanese, so you know right off that this here is fashion gold! You know you like underwear, and you know you like women’s business shirts, so how about this first-ever underwearbusinessshirt?!?

Nice way to avoid some wardrobe malfunctions, but there does seem to be something a little disquieting about combining the two. Ah well, I’m sure it’ll all come out in the wash.

Two Faces of a President January 30, 2016

“…let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth…”

The left hand:

President Obama staged a political show for a Jewish audience Wednesday, loudly warning of the new atmosphere of anti-Semitism in Europe and the U.S. ….

“Here, tonight, we must confront the reality that around the world, anti-Semitism is on the rise. We cannot deny it,” the president told his listeners at the Israeli embassy on Wednesday night. Citing the flight of Jews from Western Europe, as well attacks on Jews in India and Kansas, he got his lines right in concluding, “When we see that, we must not be silent.”

The right hand:

In a step towards joining an Israel boycott, the U.S. is now requiring goods originating from the West Bank (also known as Judea and Samaria) to be labeled separately from products from the rest of Israel, following the European Union’s crackdown on products from the disputed territories.

Insty linked to this today, and my mind was so boggled I just had to share.

We’ve all been there before, standing at the bar, shot glass in hand, ready to throw the spirit down our gullet, when we’ve thought to ourselves “man this would really be so much better if the shot glass I’m holding was made out of bacon and dipped in chocolate.” Well wish no more, because thanks to food blog Through The Eyes Of My Belly, that dream is now a reality.Bacon shot glasses dipped in chocolate and filled with whisky photo

I can’t stand whiskey, and yet…
