Monday Musings: On Wednesdays Edition

Happy Monday! Can you believe April is pretty much over? Yeesh! I’m planning on welcoming May with a #TresDeMayo party since Cinco de Mayo is (unfairly) on a Monday this year. Time for musings!

I’m already behind on a few things on the DVR, including last night’s LEGO episode of The Simpsons. And now I also need to add the LEGO documentary ‘Beyond The Brick: A Lego Brickumentary‘ to our watch list.

Check out this delightful book, “Fictitious Dishes” that has perfectly stylized photos of dishes from famous literary works.

As probably the biggest lover of HBO Go, I couldn’t help but giggle at its new ad campaign about awkward viewing moments.

In case you missed the new, Mean Girls is celebrating its 10th (!) anniversary this Wednesday. Some friends and I plan to celebrate accordingly with a watching party and plenty of Toaster Strudels. I’m excited talks of a Mean Girls musical are still being had!


HBO for All?


This could possibly be awesome.

Until now, HBO GO was only available to actual HBO subscribers. But now HBO is tinkering with the idea of joining with their broadband partners and offering HBO as an add-on to your monthly Internet service at a lower cost. You could tack on an extra $10-$15 to your broadband bill and be able to watch all the cool, original content HBO offers. HBO’s CEO said they wouldn’t offer an Internet-only product because it’s not in its best interest, but with so many of HBO’s shows being pirated online, they may change their tune soon (which would be awesome).

You can read the full story here.

I think our cable bill is already out of control which is why we’ve postponed upgrading to have channels like HBO, but we end up watching a lot of the HBO shows once they’re on DVD anyways, so this would totally be worth it to us. What do you think? Is this enticing enough for us non-HBO subscribers?
