Inspiration hit me, so I decided to cook a little somethin’ somethin’ this evening. I don’t have a well-stocked pantry, so whatever meals I create end up coming from odds and ends that I have left.
So, I ended up making sauteed broccoli with white wine garlic sauce over pasta. The wine was a 2007 Kendall-Jackson (coincidentally the very first bottle of white I’ve ever purchased). Tossed on some crushed red pepper and some zest from a left over lemon I had in the refrigerator, and I had myself a meal!
The broccoli was originally a frozen block in the freezer, so it didn’t turn out that crisp, but still eatable which is all I’m going for here as a college student.
Oh, and some sprinkled Parmesan cheese tops it all off.

I agree with this quote and feel like it can be applied to preproduction for video productions. I find it very difficult to sit down and just conjure up an idea out of thin air that sounds compelling. I find it far easier to think of ideas when I’m riding a bike or going for a walk.
This is kind of big. Mininova was the first torrent search site I used when torrents were picking up in popularity. I believe it was actually made after a larger Nova site went down. It’s still the biggest.
I’ve been using isoHunt almost exclusively since those days, along with Demonoid for the occasional, hard-to-find files. These two, in my opinion, are the only torrent searches you’ll ever need.
I posted about The Sixty One earlier. If you haven’t checked it out, you might want to before all your friends do and it becomes mainstream. That way you can brag about how you discovered it before the rest of the internet.
edit: Looks like they’ve had a Tumblr since the beginning of the year.
