Brusimm Cinema Static TV News

Over the last few months I have seen that I have collected some new followers of my newsletter, in what I presume is interest in what I was reporting on from the entertainment side of things.

I’ve decided to put my focus of that kind of reporting over on Brusimm’s sister site, Cinema Static. The site is focused purely on that kind of content. BUT…

If you have signed up for the newsletter from this site, don’t fret. I have combined the two sites worth of news into a single newsletter that will now be coming out daily, M-F, now.

This site will be more focused on consumery things, book reviews and the like, while the main thrust of info from the fun realm of entertainment will be coming out of Cinema Static. Plus, some older posts that sit here will be getting moved over to CS as well.

This was a Google-driven decision in the hopes of helping grow my Cinema Static reader base.

Here’s the latest from CS:

This is a short disposition on why I am no longer playing the dangerous road condition points games with my Waze app.  And thank you Waze, AKA Google, for enticing me away from these dangerous driving habits.

The other day my wife needed a new battery for her cell phone and it was not a simple fix since our Motorolas (AKA the Hong Kong based Lenovo) has sealed bodies, we could not change them out ourselves. Well, at least not easily. SO off to the Verizon store I went. I ended up getting new phones for both of us. Technically, they’re new batteries, right? In the process, I’ve achieved divesting myself of our horrible Motorola phone experiences. (Why I’ll never buy another Motorola Phone Again) This also ended my 10-year embargo on Samsung products, since I ended up with two new Samsung Galaxy S6’s.

(MY sympathies to those who still have their Motorola phones and still experiencing the alleged ‘Planned Obsolescence’ experience.)

But I digress.

The reason I am no longer playing the Waze points Game was that when I got my new phones one of the first apps I installed back into my phone life was my Waze App, the app could not connect me to my old profile that had accumulated thousands of road points.

OPM And Other Data Breaches And Your Personal Security

July 23, 2015

I am so sick of organizations we trust getting their computer databases breached. If they were to actually spend the money securing their databases, well, it would be nice, right? And can we really pay someone to “protect” us from the evils of Identity Theft? Is Lifelock worth it? (See my last paragraph for that […]

Are Those Trumpets In The Sky Rumors Or Truth?

July 20, 2015

I thought you would get a kick out of this fascinating and apparently unique natural phenomenon referred to by the layman as “trumpet” sounds are actually Earth’s natural radio transmissions that just happen to be occurring at the tone that humans can hear, while scaring the crap out of themselves. I love this video where […]
