Opened my browser today and this:

Mind your own business, Google!

It's always nice to be reminded that Big Brother is watching. Next time, I'll put on pants before turning on my computer.

(Did they have to put bugs on my cake? I'm getting a very mixed message here.)

So somehow this is a thing now:

If three of these were poison, how many would you eat?

I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I mean, I like M&M's (even with their unconventional use of the apostrophe). I have a bag near me now.

However, who wants a candy that tastes like the Miami Dolphins? They're not a particularly good football team. What would you expect a Dolphins-branded candy to taste like? Failure? Disappointment? Actual dolphins?

At least they don't taste like the Cleveland Browns.

July is surprisingly well read for a dog

Saturday, September 17 was officially Batman Day 2016 according to DC Comics.

I might have remembered that if there was some rhyme or reason to when Batman Day is celebrated. In 2014, it was in July. Last year, it was September 26.

Just like Batman himself, you never know when Batman Day will strike!

Sunsets and rainbows.

I blame global warming for such spectacular sunsets

The sky is on fire

Rainbows are really just giant lens flares

Just because.

The Olympics swallowed August, and I saw only 4 movies last month. Here they are.

73. (1011.) S.O.B. (1981)
This fantastically dark, dark comedy by Blake Edwards is a send-up of Hollywood. Best known as the film in which Julie Andrews goes topless, the film is worth watching for Robert Preston alone. He steals every scene he's in.

74. (1012.) The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
Look! Rhino! Electro! Gwen Stacy! Green Goblin! Spider Slayer! Aunt May! Chameleon! Dr. Octopus! Uncle Ben! Vulture! Lizard! Richard Parker! This movie is so determined to squeeze in every possible Spider-Man easter egg that it forgot to tell anything resembling a cohesive story. (Seriously, was I was I watching a toy commercial?) Ultimately, it feels more like a television pilot or a video game promo than a theatrical release. Skip this and read the comics instead. At least comic publishers understand that incomplete stories don't sell.

75. (1013.) Breaking Away (1979)
This is often discussed as being among the "great sports movies," but just like how The Karate Kid is barely about martial arts, this movie is more of a coming of age movie than a film about bicycle racing. That's not a negative. It is a very good movie.

76. (1014.) Evil Dead (2013)
A completely unnecessary (and slightly stupid) remake of one of the most perfect (and funny) horror movie series of all time. My biggest complaint is that it does a poor job of laying out and following its own rules — a cardinal sin in the horror genre. If you're in the mood for this sort of demonic slasher film, watch the superior Sam Raimi/Bruce Campbell originals instead.

I've already seen more than four movies in September, so I can promise a bigger batch of movies next time.

More to come.
