Some reviews...

I don't give my opinion on things enough, so every once in a while I'll just unload with my thoughts on various movies, TV shows, gadgets, services, whatever. These will not be in depth studies, I'll just let you know what my thoughts are.




First up is the Oral-B Hummingbird. I'm loving this little gadget. Basically it's tooth flossing device that massages your gums as you floss. It works great and my gums have never been so healthy. The real test will be to see what my dental hygienist has to say in November when I have my next appointment but I'm sure it will be one of the best and quickest trips to the dentist I've had in years.





























I watched the first 5 episodes of the second season of Weeds the other night and it is without a doubt the smartest comedy on television. The story of Nancy the pot dealing soccer mom is really hitting it's stride in it's Sophomore season. Every episode adds more layers to the story and keeps you wanting more.


















The new Outkast album Idlewild is amazing. A complete departure from anything that they have done before, it borrows heavily from 30's style jazz and blues with a healthy dose of 70's R&B and funk. It's one of a very few albums put out in recent years that I listen to all the way through every time I play it. I can't even pick a favourite song because the entire disc is just that solid.

oh, it's not that I don't like Outkast, I just didn't see you as the Outkast type.

I like good music, Outkast consistantly delivers good music.

Did you see the movie Idlewild? It was bad, bad, bad, and I'm a big Outkast fan.

No, Regina is a smallish Canadian city and Idlewild never opened here.
