Blue Diamond Almonds, Lightly Salted [/] I'm not a fan of almonds and plain almonds are not tasty at all. These lightly salted almonds are a little too lightly salted (or my taste buds are off).

Tavern Chat Podcast (2018) [-] I listened to a few recent episodes and not exactly sure what's the focus of this RPG industry podcast. Seems to be news and opinions with a bro attitude. Audio is not great. Kind of found the presentation annoying so that's that.

Movie - Braven (2018) [/] Small logging company owner Joe Braven (Jason Momoa) and his family are attacked in their remote vacation cabin because one of his drivers hid a duffel bag full of drugs there and now drug lord Kassen (Garret Dillahunt) and his men have come to take the drugs... It's a for a well-produced low budget action film.

Documentary Series - Long Way Round (2004) [/] Actors Ewan McGregor and best friend Charley Boorman attempt a motorcycle drive horizontally around the world, from London to eastern Russia then from Alaska to New York. A couple of episodes preparing for the trip: getting sponsors, organizing materials, learning how to deal with possible scenarios like a gang controlling a checkpoint. Then most of the episodes are about the trip: it's the two and a cameraman on three motorcycles plus a support team paralleling them several hours to a day or two away. Finally an episode a year later to reminisce... It's pretty interesting with all the travails they go through and all the people they met and things they do as they stop at various cities.

Movie - Safe (2012) [-] Jason Statham action film where an ex-crooked spec ops who redeems himself by saving a girl (Catherine Chan) being chased by the Triads, Russian mob, and crooked NYPD detectives. Statham has done good action movies but this is not one of them.
