I got me some motherf*cking bitcoin

Posted by jen on July 21, 2014

I also have the best friends in the world. so there’s some guy/gal/team hiding bitcoin around the city and tweeting out clues to where you can find “the wallet” which is printed on an aluminum card. it has a bitcoin address and corresponding private key that can be imported to the wallet of the person who finds the card. (I had to copy and paste that sentence.)

anywho, darling Jim found one and gave it to me!! I am the proud owner of 0.03 bitcoin!! I looked it up this morning and it was valued at $20.65, just looked it up again and its currently $20.73!!

the obvious next step is to figure out how to buy something on the black market but for now I’m just going to admire it.

heart. heart. heart.

heart. heart. heart.

time after timeNotorious serial killer Jack the Ripper (David Warner) is back to continue his ghastly reign of terror. But this time, he’s found his way from Victorian times to the late 1970s, and he’s intent on taking care of unfinished business. Using a time machine to pursue Jack into the future, H.G. Wells (Malcolm McDowell) meets Amy (Mary Steenburgen), a bank clerk who teaches Wells about life in the ’70s while helping him hunt for Jack. –Netflix

this movie starts off in merry old England where the coppers are closing in fast on Jack the Ripper. good thing he finds H.G. Wells’ time machine and just narrowly escapes the clutches of justice by traveling to 70s era San Francisco. unable to quit his Jack the Ripper ways he starts slicing up some modern day prostitutes with some modern day coppers on the case.

you heard me.

Posted by jen on July 15, 2014

Is anyone playing two dots on your phone? It’s like dots, super satisfying tactile-wise, but about strategy not speed. I. Am. Obsessed. And check it am one level away from finishing! Play it.

oh, hello friends. I decided to flip through a bunch of my ye olde tymey cookbooks the other day wondering if I should start cooking up some hilarity again. I dunno.. I think if I do it might be time for me to get hardcore with some tongue in jello, but figured I could test the waters with an easy to make single serving size breakfast. it’s from this book I’ve used before:

morning.. noon.. and night

morning.. noon.. and night

recipe and the results after the jump.

zodiac!

Posted by jen on July 14, 2014

zodiacA serial killer in the San Francisco Bay Area taunts police with his letters and cryptic messages. We follow the investigators and reporters in this lightly fictionalized account of the true 1970’s case as they search for the murderer, becoming obsessed with the case. Based on Robert Graysmith’s book, the movie’s focus is the lives and careers of the detectives and newspaper people. –IMDB

Becca and I saw this in the theatre back in ’07 and were terrified. well, its not nearly as scary as I remember and the ending is super satisfying. just an overall fascinating true story about some gnarly murders that went on back in the day. and I do love a movie that’s got me all over the ‘net afterwards reading everything I can find on the subject. also, I heart me some Robert Downey Jr.

filmed around the city but not a ton.

FOUR STARS
