  1. "After Life" On Netflix

    Just finished it, and there wasn't enough episodes. It turned out to be more than just a comedy, it's a real human story. The feedback from the public has apparently blown Gervais away, it's really resonating with people somehow. Perhaps because so much of the world is so phony, people want something real. Or maybe I fell and hit my head.
  2. I'm sure you're right. Makes me wanna stay home even more.

  4. With Madison Ave bridge now closed till June and the upcoming NYSEG work on Water Street at Clemens Center Parkway, you'll do well to stay away from that area. Or plan ahead and give yourself more time to get where you're going. With the increased traffic over the Clemens Center Parkway, having further work done in that area wasn't very well planned out. It's already a pain, I can't imagine what it'll be like next week.
  5. Woodstock 50th Coming To Watkins Glen

    Not to be a downer, but there are very few people on this lineup I'd go see. Actually, I've never heard of at least 75% of them:
  6. I bet someone could make an argument that alcohol, being more socially acceptable and more readily consumed, is actually more dangerous.
  7. I renewed my subscription to HBO Now. For uh, now, and we'll see how it works as I binge on Seasons 1-7. I don't want to get locked into a contract with Direct TV in case cable/Internet DOES come through here this year.
  8. If you're a DISH Network customer, you're not gonna be able to subscribe to HBO. Apparently they dropped the network due to contract disputes. So you have to subscribe to the streaming service app, which is 1080p and was buffering like hell here. Or you have to switch to DirectTV I can't imagine an easier way to lose customers than drop a network with arguably the most popular programming.
  9. Craft Beers

    All three nights this weekend we were at places that made their own beer. Friday night was Brick house Brewery on Pultney St. in Corning. They had maybe a half dozen or so beers on their menu, and the first I tried, the Copper Ale, was my selection for the evening. The owner said it was their best seller, and it was easy to see why. Saturday night was Wellsboro House in Wellsboro PA ( naturally ). The currently offer 16 house beers which are brewed right across the street in the old train station, which is pretty cool in itself. Some of their selections have witty names such as "Double D Rye Ale", "Wynken, Blynken And Nod Out IPA" or "Kick In The Berries". I wasn't sure what to have so I sampled someone's "Quadzilla Belgian Ale". Again, I liked it at first taste, so that's what I went with. Here's the thing about the Quadzilla though: It's potent. After just two I was feeling it. After a couple more, it was time for good old fashioned H2o. When I asked one of the guys what the alcohol content was, I wasn't sure I heard them right. They confirmed it the next day... 10% ABV. It's good, but best kept to just one or two. Sunday we were at Grist Iron Brewing in Hector. I've had several of their beers before and have enjoyed the Lake Life IPA and the MaXXimus Brown Ale. I was looking for something with a little lower alcohol content so I tried the Life's Lemons NEIPA. Definitely light and clean, the lemon isn't too much, it's more subtle than I was expecting. I definitely enjoyed it.
  10. I agree. And furthermore, you're freeing up the legal system and courts to go after the hardcore stuff like heroin and meth. And no, I don't buy the "Marijuana is a gateway to harder drugs" theory. People who want to smoke pot will, whether it's legal or not. I don't see a huge crush of people flocking to buy a bong because it's suddenly legal.
  11. County Executive & Legislature Disagreements

    Last night the legislature voted to hire an attorney out of Albany to represent them in the lawsuit Moss has filed. The attorney will cost $295/hr plus costs and disbursments. What happened to Schlater doing the work pro bono? Who is paying the cost of this attorney??
