Link Roundup: May. 8, 2005

It’s been a while since I posted a Link Roundup, but now I’ve finally gathered enough links to make it worth while. Flying Cars CBS has a nice article with the latest news about flying cars.

Stars for Novelty

I watch a lot of movies on Netflix. Once you’ve watched a movie, Netflix asks you to rate it from 1 to 5 stars. I interpret the points as follows:1 – I hated it2 – Disappointing3 – Good / Average4 – Very good5 – Loved it, and will watch it again and again. I’ve noticed […]

I watched Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns again, this time with my mother-in-law. I think we all had a fun time. If you haven’t seen it, it’s available on Netflix, and at your local or internet DVD stores. You could even borrow it from a friend who owns a copy, but I bet you […]
