'Tis the Season To Be Streaming...
Top 5 Websites for Watching Online HD Movies for Free 2016

Before you start scouring the web looking for websites that play movies, beware that most require you you sign up, and will ask for your personal information.

I can tell you with confidence to STOP! Do not sign up for a website just to watch a movie, and never give out your personal information.

There are plenty of sites that do not require a sign up or ask for your personal information and I am going to give you a short list of the best to date. All checked, and all current, and all of these sites feature the older, along with most of the newer films.
Everyone likes watching movies from time to time. Movies are a great pastime form of entertainment, and they're great to show when you're having company. Streaming movies will not only entertain your guests, but you'll also impress them with your knowledge of knowing the best sites to use.

These days more and more people out there are calling themselves cord-cutters, and what they mean by this is that they are eliminating the excessive cable bills and opting to Stream and cast the programming they want. By picking and choosing your entertainment, you'll be able to eliminate all of those annoying commercials as well.

Finding the best sites can be tiresome, and some sites disappear not long after they go up. The sites I list here are tried, true, tested, and reliable

Eve
ry Holiday Classic that I could think of, I was able to look up and find, but that's not all...I've also found Classic Oldies and the most recent Movies still playing in theater's today.



These sites are the best of the best that are up and going to date. I've found many favorites there, and that's why I highly recommend these sites. Bookmark them and check them out from time to time.

Lastly, for anyone looking to stream video content you can not ignore the fact that YouTube has the most to offer free and paid. There are a few others worth checking out, because they are quick, safe and reliable. These sites are listed below.

The Top 10 Albums from 2016

Today is as good as any for taking a fond look back at this passing year of 2016, and recalling some of the best music that came out along the way, while tripping the past fantastic.

So, here we go...

December, being the end of the year always brings out the Top 10 lists of any and everything you could possibly imagine from almost everyone working a qwerty. So here's another Top 10 list for you to ponder. This list is only different in the sense that it is my own and does not reflect the opinions of anyone else. Therefore, any similarities found will be purely coincidental.

Whether you're searching for the best sellers or highest rated or whatever it may be. It's for sure out there by now only a few searches and or clicks away.

Here I offer you a Top 10 list of important albums that came out this year that are extremely good. You may already have a few, and then again, maybe I've listed a few you were not aware of or have simply forgotten.

The Top 10 of 2016

  1. Blackstar - David Bowie
  2. Loud Hailer - Jeff Beck
  3. Britney Spears - Glory
  4. Sia - This Is Acting
  5. Norah Jones - Day Breaks
  6. Garbage - Strange Little Birds
  7. Lindsey Stirling - Brave Enough
  8. Enigma - The Fall of a Rebel Angel
  9. Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool
  10. 10. Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker







Many other well known established artists have also released new albums this year, and many of them are also very good. The following get honorably mentioned here and their albums are also worth getting.



1. Tove Lo - Lady Wood

2. Eric Clapton - I Still Do

3. Ingrid Michaelson - It Doesn't Have To Make Sense

4. Heart - Beautiful Broken

5. Beth Hart - Fire On The Floor

6. Eric Clapton - Live In San Diego

The Top 20 Best Selling Books of 2016

Here we are early in the month of December. If you're thinking that books make a great gift to give someone, you are absolutely correct. You might then be wondering what the best of the best are this year and hopefully find something for that special person on your shopping list.

These days it seems like everyone has a best selling list, and if you've seen a few you have undoubtedly noticed that they are not all the same. One of the most respected and highly referenced is the NY Times best sellers list, and then there is the LA Times, Wall Street Journal and then the online Book Sellers Barnes & Noble, and of course Amazon. And all of these lists will be different...WTH you say??

The truth is that most of these lists are based loosely on sales figures that are collected by Nielsen BookScan, and their figures represent something in the area of 75%-85% of actual sales. So, there is no definitive actual best seller list, you simply get what others are speculating about.

Realizing that all of these lists are speculative and not accurate, I feel a little bit more confident with the lists that Amazon publishes. They are the biggest online seller of books in all formats and there is not even a close second.

Here then are the Best Selling Books of 2016 of the year so far as reported by Amazon.

The Rolling Stones - Blue and Lonesome - Review - 4 Stars!

The Rolling Stones are back with a new album. Their first new album since A Bigger Bang, and that was years ago. The new album is a batch of covers from Blues Greats that were their up and coming inspiration.

Forget about the cute little story of how and why this album came together, the story line they put out sounds like a load of BS. Instead, lets just focus on what we do have.

This new album features twelve new tracks, and with these twelve tracks, two things really stand out, the first is that the musical instrumentation is trimmed down to raw basics, and the second is the curious, slight distortion applied to Mick's vocals. Aside from that, the guitars sound like what you'd expect from the stones, Charlie's drums are as tight as ever, and surprisingly Mick's harmonica play is really a lot better than what we've seen him do in the past. Here he is really inspired and gives these numbers everything he's got. The two tracks that feature Eric Clapton do not need to be called out, as his playing is uniquely his own and these two numbers with Eric are easily identifiable to anyone who gives this album a spin.

They've recorded some of these numbers before, and the curious difference between the then and now is their approach to these songs. Today the band comes across more relaxed and their performances have a more natural fluid feel.

Then there's the difference in Mick's vocals, where he definitely sounded younger before, and now is obviously older. About the only way to describe his voice from the past to his voice of today, would be to say his vocal is more matured. Although older and more matured, he does not sound bad, instead, despite the slight layer of distortion he sounds great.

The other noticeable difference between the songs today and their versions from the past probably has more to do with the times, when everyone seemed to have more abruptness in their tempo. It was part of the times and the style that was comfortable then. So, songs then definitely seem more rushed, but it wasn't just the Stones. It was everybody, it was the sixties.

The new Blue & Lonesome doesn’t really feel or sound much like the stuff the Stones made long ago, instead it's much better, and it sounds like a good 'ol band of buddies with amazing chemistry, giving a batch of old time blues numbers a Rolling Stones make-over.

The skeptic in all of us might still be wondering...is the Jagger/Richards songwriting partnership kaput, or are these guys just out of gas...running on empty? What's the real deal here?

IMO - Keith Richards has still got it, his Crosseyed Heart solo album from last year is full of good stuff.

Maybe this album will get the guys more motivated to get an album of new songs in the works, let's hope so. Until then we have this new album to enjoy.

Rate this 4 Stars

Amazon is recalling Kindle Fire tablet power adapters!


Amazon's adapters for the seven-inch tablet that were bought between September 2015 and March 2016 are being recalled.

This new recall also extends to the adapters for the UK Fire Kids seven-inch edition.
The company first issued the recall notice back in March, but it has been re-issued by Trading Standards again this week.

According to Amazon, when the power adapter gets pulled from the wall socket, the adapter assembly can easily break apart and create a risk of electrical shock.

Amazon is advising all affected customers to stop using the adapter until a replacement is received.

An Amazon spokesman said: 

"Customer safety is our top priority, and we are proactively offering to replace these power adapters with a new adapter, free of charge. We encourage customers to exchange their original power adapters using the process below. Please discontinue use of your original adapter. Until you receive a replacement adapter, you can use the included USB cable connected to a computer or another compatible adapter to charge your tablet."

Contact www.amazon.co.uk/contactus if your power adapter is among those affected.

You can also visit www.amazon.co.uk for more details.

Power adapters sold in other countries, shipped with Fire HD and Fire HDX tablets, or displayed below are not affected and need not be exchanged.
