    "Reel Injun" is currently on Netflix. A documentary about the portrayal of Native Americans by Hollywood over the years. I thought it was MUCH better than the trailer lets on.

    Watched "Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead" on Netflix last night, a doc about National Lampoon Magazine and all its offshoots. Pretty interesting stuff, with great clips of pre-SNL Belushi, Chase, Murray, Radner, etc.

    @ADopted ADmiral and I watched this together when I was visiting him a couple years back. Not long after that, I spotted a copy of the Anvil record at a dirt mall and just had to give it to him.

    HBO doc "Becoming Warren Buffet" is a good watch.

    Started this last night and got about 10 minutes in before I ended up getting busy with something else at the house. I'm planning on finishing it up tonight/tomorrow, and I'll report back.

    Watched Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers​ last night. Not a bad hour-and-a-half. You would like it @theguru.

    The new season of Last Chance U came out on Netflix today. I'll be binging that later.
