The Judge (2014)
The Judge (2014)
DVD ~ Robert Downey Jr.
Price: $9.99
36 used & new from $4.42

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Redbox Kiosk At My Job, September 30, 2015
This review is from: The Judge (2014) (DVD)
The Judge stars Robert Downey Jr. as lawyer Henry Hank Palmer who is gifted at his job but has to deal with his personal life changing before his eyes. The beginning of the movie shows Henry having a deep heated discussion with his wife Lisa Palmer (Sarah Lancaster) over an intimate encounter she had with an old flame after he discovers that she sadly plans on divorcing him. However, Henry loves his daughter Lauren (Emma Tremblay)dearly and this is one of the areas that provides a strong source of comfort to him after he ends up visiting his dad Judge Jospeh Palmer (Robert Duvall) and his brothers Glen (Vincent D’Onofrio)and Dale Palmer (Jeremy Strong) due to a death in the family. Henry’s daughter Lauren is naturally nervous about her parents divorcing because two of her friends named Megan and Caitlin have parents who also divorced so naturally Lauren is concerned as to how she is going to fare. The tension is at first so great between Henry Palmer and his father Jospeh Palmer that his father at first hires Attorney C..P. Kennedy (Dax Shepard) even though his own son is a gifted trained lawyer with experience in the court case he faces. This is a big deal because a no holds barred prosecutor by the name of Dwight (Billy Bob Thornton) is known for his tough stances on participants that he is not defending. Judge Joseph Palmer is implicated in a hit and run situation with his car and what complicates the situation is a blood alcohol content of 0.23 (which I think the movie states was found in the father’s victim). In the midst of this Henry Palmer also runs into his old flame Samantha Powell (Vera Farmigia) who runs her own restaurant and has a daughter who happens to be a Georgetown University Law student Carla Powell (Leighton Meester). One of the things that I do enjoy about the movie is that The Judge portrayed how even an accomplished and successful lawyer such as Henry Hank Palmer cares about his dad but is also trying to strengthen a closer connection with his father. Fortunately, my adoptive father knows that I’m grateful that he adopted me and legally claimed me as his daughter (when I was between 11-13 years old) even though I’m not biologically his regardless of what happens. However, watching The Judge was unexpectedly healing to me because it showed how even such an ambitious man such as Henry Palmer in a prestigious occupation cannot always have it all in the way of both a perfect family life and professional life. The special feature of The Judge dvd is titled Getting Deep With Dax Shepard. Shepard interviews Robert Downey Jr., Vincent D’Onofrio and Billy Bob Thornton during this segment. Some interesting facts; Vincent D’Onofrio has known Robert Downey Jr. since he was a kid. Billy Bob Thornton’s wife has a crush on Dax Shepard. There are movie trailers within this dvd for American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, and directed by Clint Eastwood. There are also movie trailers for Jupiter Ascending, Horrible Bosses 2, and In The Heart of The Sea.

Sweet Escape [feat. Sirena]
Sweet Escape [feat. Sirena]
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Healing Romantic Tune From Iheart Radio Pete Tong Station, September 30, 2015
Sweet Esape by Alesso feat. Sirena is a beautiful trance/electronic tune that appears to be about two people finding comfort and solace in each other. As from what I pick up on the lyrics, the pair together are unstoppable and stand by each other through good and challenging times.

Be Right There
Be Right There
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Dignified Jade Remix, September 30, 2015
This review is from: Be Right There (MP3 Music)
Be Right There by Diplo & Sleepy Tom is an electronic dance song that I first heard on an iheartradio station affiliated with Pete Tong. This song appears to be about making it clear with somebody that you intend to be there for them as long as they avoid walking way. Be Right There by Diplo & Sleepy Tom seems to be a polite music tribute to the 90’s classic R&B and dance mashup hit Don’t Walk Away by Jade.

Disarm You (feat. Ilsey)
Disarm You (feat. Ilsey)
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars First Heard on Nadia Ali iheart Radio Station, September 30, 2015
Disarm You by Kaskade feat. Ilsey seems to be a romantic type of trance/electronic song that appears to be about wanting to get close to someone but the singer is aware that the other person’s guard is up (i.e the disarm lyric). I understand that the meaning could be about something else but I’m guessing that the song could also be about wanting to journey with someone (metaphorically speaking) to a more spiritually uplifting place in life.

Take Me Home (Radio Edit)
Take Me Home (Radio Edit)
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Chillwave Station of Pandora, September 30, 2015
Take Me Home by Thomas Gold, Harrison, and HIIO appears to be a indie electronic/chillout song about getting oneself to a place where they can feel a sense of belonging (I’m just guessing). With the lyrics (the lights are gonna take me) I’m guessing is either a play on the lights in a club or metaphoric spiritual light.

Sweetness
Sweetness
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Music Effort by Jimmy Eat World, September 30, 2015
This review is from: Sweetness (MP3 Music)
I remember first hearing Sweetness by Jimmy Eat World around 2005/2006 when I was living in Florida. This song is far from a romantic alternative rock song to listen to but the vocals and the music go together to create a harmonic blend of a song about a person feeling a certain way that is different from what their targeted interest is feeling (from what is listed online). However, this is a strong song to listen to for those who have also enjoyed The Middle.

Fifteen (feat. Chela)
Fifteen (feat. Chela)
Price: $0.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Chillwave Pandora Tune, September 30, 2015
Fifteen by Goldroom feat. Chela is a relaxing indie, electronic, and chillout tune that appears to be a musical story about reminiscing about someone that you knew from your past. I’m guessing it is an all purpose type of chillout song that doesn’t have to pertain to someone from your romantic past but even just someone that you knew as just a platonic friend.

Mountain House Standard Pouch, Lasagna with Meat Sauce
Mountain House Standard Pouch, Lasagna with Meat Sauce
Price: $6.99
22 used & new from $5.99

4.0 out of 5 starsCourtesy of My Mother In Law, September 30, 2015
This packet of Mountain House Lasagna with Meat Sauce came out tasting better than I expected with tomato sauce that helped strongly enhance the moistness of the lasagna noodles. The only caveat is that one may want to have some Italian or basil seasoning on hand to enhance the Mountain House lasagna to give it that added zing.

9/30/2015 Updated review

I went back to eat at the Union Station location of Shake Shack this past  Monday (the Washington D.C. location)when I was hanging out with a friend.  I had a sprite drink, the Shack Stack which is a delicious giant mushroom stuffed with muenster and cheddar cheeses and a cheese burger combined in one. Their fries were fresh and the helping of American and cheddar cheese sauce that they gave me on the side to dip my fries in completed out what was a toothsome meal. Last, but not least, the cashier who took my order was both friendly and polite, plus I got my order pretty fast.
