Wintertime Tip: Up Your Netflix Game

You’ve got Netflix, right? I know I’m not the only one who watches something on there basically every day. I should really offer to pay them more based solely on the number of times I’ve re-watched Buffy. It’s pretty straight-forward and easy to figure out, but there are a few adjustments that might make your viewing experience even better. First, make sure you’re rating everything you can. That’s pretty obvious and I still forget to do it sometimes, but it really will make a difference and your recommendations will seriously improve. Once you’ve got your ratings situation down, up your game and try out some of the options listed below. Seven Ways to Improve Your Netflix Experience: Add IMDB & Rotten Tomatoes ratings to your account with Chrome extension, Netflix Enhancer. In addition to ratings, it’ll link you to the matching page on each site for quickly checking out reviews. Make sure you’re really watching in HD! Click Your Account, then Playback Settings, then High. Done! (Ah, that’s better!) Change your subtitle settings if the default yellow ones just aren’t …

My MBP

Since I shared my iPhone homescreen recently, I thought I’d also share a photo of the computer I spend so much time on (professionally & personally). I’ve definitely met people based on them spotting a sticker they like, so I recommend this approach if you wouldn’t mind strangers chatting with you randomly. Most of the stickers on my MacBook Pro are from Redbubble and CafePress, except the WordPress ones, the Twitter bird, and the GitHub girl. See: feminist heart, Leslie Knope, </patriarchy>, Tina Belcher, Veronica Mars, Buffy, DFTBA, GitHub girl, books.

BFF Sunday in Austin

I’m in Austin staying with the BFF for a few days. Yesterday we watched Buffy and ate cheeseburgers. Today included Cinnamon Roll Waffles for breakfast, hours of talking, a few episodes of Firefly, and Stiles Switch BBQ for dinner. BBQ dinner at Stiles Switch BBQ in Austin today.

Original Willow

Did you know Willow in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer pilot was played by someone other than Alyson Hannigan? The re-cast was needed and made for a much-improved pilot (and show), because whooooooooooa. Still, fun to see and so awkward (much like lots of moments in season one).

Reasons BFF Visits Are Great

My BFF (of 18 years!) flew to Dallas from Austin to visit me this weekend. (Virgin ran a deal a while back and we both got tickets for weekend visits for around $100.) And here’s the thing that’s really great about when your best friend comes to stay at your house: You don’t have to DO anything special for it to be great. There’s no pressure to put on a whole production to entertain and/or impress. Your BFF is there to visit YOU, and so you can spend hours upon hours talking & talking & talking. And then you can watch about 12 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And you can go to a bakery and get a ton of sweets to eat when you’re not out grabbing your favorite pizza. It’s great & I highly recommend it. 😀 I had the best pizza ever this weekend @canerossotx. Prosciutto & fresh mozzarella made in-house. And dessert pizza! #pizza #dallas A post shared by Kim J. | owlpacino | (@owlpacinophotos) on Jun 28, 2015 at 1:24pm PDT
