March 25

Over the years...

 

I did this very thing the other day to reverse engineer the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls API (super fun), but also launched a bunch of other apps to see what sorts of services they were talking to, and what kind of data they were sending. Yikes.

Huzzah! The iOS 12.2 update makes progressive web apps work much better, including Together, which now has a nice place on my home screen.

 

Yes: Looking forward to attending my third consecutive IndieWeb Summit in Portland, OR!

 

First into the Tank are brothers from Richardson, Texas, who introduce their decadent breakfast treat, authentic to a European staple; and entrepreneurs from San Francisco, California, pitch their online fashion trading platform with the aim of helping women save money while also easing the environmental impact of clothing manufacturing. Then, an active duty soldier from Leavenworth, Kansas, presents his idea for everyone to conveniently and affordably have a swimming pool; and last into the Tank is a mom from Los Angeles, California, who pitches her clever twist on a traditional children’s product that is designed to help mom’s on the go.

Movie Review: Sing

3 out of 5 stars

It was movie night in the LaCour home theater, and the family hunkered down to watch Sing, a 2016 animated feature from Illumination Entertainment.

Sing tells the tale of a struggling theater owner Buster Moon, voiced by Matthew McConaughey, as he tries to save his theater from financial ruin by hosting a signing competition. After a mishap by his assistant, Moon ends up advertising that the show will feature a $100,000 prize, rather than a $1,000 prize, and chaos ensues.

The movie features average animation and some decent voice work from McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, and Seth McFarlane. It drags a bit in the middle, and could lose about 15-20 minutes of run time to make it tighter. That said, great music and some decent laughs make it a worthwhile rental for the family.

 

Recipe: The American Trilogy Cocktail


Ingredients

  • 1 oz. Rye Whiskey
  • 1 oz. Apple Brandy
  • 1 brown sugar cube
  • 4 dashes Orange Bitters
  • Orange peel for garnish

Takes . Serves One.

Last night, I was introduced to this lovely cocktail by a talented bartender at a speakeasy in Long Beach. It was conceived in New York's Little BranchΒ bar in 2007, and is a riff on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail.

Start by dropping four dashes of orange bitters on top of the brown sugar cube, and muddle with orange peel. Then, add one ounce each of Rye Whiskey and Apple Brandy, stir with ice and serve with an orange peel garnish.

 

Enjoying my first "American Trilogy" cocktail. I'll toss up a recipe tomorrow!
