I’ve been a fan of Jason Kottke’s Media Diet posts forever and decided it’s time to start my own, because I consume so much, I forget what I’ve seen, what I like and what to recommend to folks. So, consider this the first in what will hopefully be a series of “stuff Kevin’s watched so… Continue reading Summer Media Consumption
I’ve written these for a few years now (I could have sworn I wrote one last year, but I guess I didn’t), and I think this is the first year that it’s been harder to pick out albums than some great songs. I think Spotify may have finally broken me of my “listen to the… Continue reading Kevin’s Musical Year in Review for 2017
I was always a big kid, but that didn’t keep me from getting bullied at school, usually picked on because of my weight or that I was a Mormon (and usually the only one in my grade). Thankfully, it stopped by high school (probably because I was, again, big). I’m glad to see that there’s… Continue reading The Bully Project
We signed up for Netflix recently, and I love it. I’m not sure why I held out for so long… Anyways, the boys have fallen in love with it too and are now ruining my recommendations by watching nothing but Mythbusters and Mystery Science Theater 3000 on it. Now, whenever I log in, the “Top… Continue reading My Kids Are Ruining It!
Unnamed Max Lawver School Project – Dailies Day One from Kevin Lawver on Vimeo.\ Max is making a movie for school, so we’ve turned the front room into a jury rigged animation studio. Max is making all the models, backdrops and I’m making him move the models when we film. I take the frames and… Continue reading The First Round of Dailies from Max’s Movie
Chicken Little, the new animated movie voiced by Zack Braff, is amusing, entertaining, and full of rockin’ tunes, but man, do I hate it. The father constantly belittles and ignores Chicken Little and he ignores his coach’s specific instruction, in order to gain glory. Kevin bought the movie 2 or 3 weeks ago thinking it… Continue reading Chicken Little
Lesson #1: Don’t ignore the baby.\ The baby monitor in the kitchen isn’t usually on anymore because of some newly acquired static. The static is probably caused by one of our neighbors having recently setup their own baby monitor (the pain of living close to lots of people). So this morning when I woke up… Continue reading Bad Mommy #36,189
I am such a girl for this movie. I watched it this afternoon and cried and cried. I blame exhaustion, but honestly, I’m just a big baby. I have more to write on why I’m such a fat blubbering baby, but I’m too tired to write it at the moment.\ I will though, really.
I’ve watched a lot of movies stuck here on the couch (except for a couple nerdy hours today when I went back to work to give a presentation to almost 200 people, but we won’t talk about that now). I’ve gone so far as to start watching the commentaries on movies I’ve seen before. I… Continue reading Incredible Commentary: Geeks From Another World
After reading Salon’s review, I have to go see it. I’m all about jokes you shouldn’t tell, and smart ways to gross people out.\ When I lived in Tucson, my friend Jim and I used to play this game where we one-upped each other until one of us gave and did the “here’s the line,… Continue reading The Aristocrats
