I read that about Shifty Powers the other day, unfortunately these true American heroes are becoming fewer and fewer by the day ... RIP Shifty and Thank You Sir for your service and sacrifices.



Band of Brothers is a series that I *never* tire of watching, due to my busy work schedule at the moment there hasn't been much time for watching movies but I've been trying to get some of these episodes in whenever I can, right now it's Part 5 'Crossroads' on BluRay.

Can't wait for the next series about the Pacific to come out, hope it's as good as the original.

WWI verteran and Worlds oldest person dies.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31979722/?GT1=43001


"I want everyone to know," he told The Associated Press during an interview in November. "They died for us."....9 million soldiers...

I wish these young "know it all" in the world would get a clue.

Don't deny older know-it-alls the benefit of your wish. Ageism works both ways.

WELL! We are officially revoking your red, white, and blue "man" card.

Seriously, please don't watch it until you're in a situation where you can open up the Axioms without stepping on anyone else's toes. The audio special effects (visual ones too - the tracers are remarkable) are among the best I've ever heard, I don't think I actually flinch as the rounds zing over my head and past my ears, but my adrenaline rush is telling me I should.

P.S. I found episode one to be a little slow (YMMV). If, after watching it, you find yourself saying "Gee? What's all the fuss about," just wait until the series gets down and dirty.

I definitely agree about the audio. HBO did an excellent job.
