I was contacted yesterday by a company that would pay me well to mess up your computer with malware. As tempting as money is, because I’m broke. I have to shave that guy I look at every morning. So, I’m just giving you a heads up on video sites. If any video site asks you to install a special player. DON’T! If you have, run a virus scanner and never do it again. Also, if you get something that tells you your flash player needs updating, do not do it through web links. Go to Adobe. I don’t use flash, so you don’t need it here at all. (EDIT – Hulu and Crackle use it) Pay attention. A lot of people are playing dirty pool.

The Russian myth of Domovoy is that he’s a household spirit that appears under various names and in various places in your house. Domovoy was also the magician of Ivan the Terrible. In America, we’d call it a poltergeist. The movie is about a Russian writer who went to the ruins of Domovoy’s house and drew evil upon himself. This is a strange art house nightmare. You might think it’s a little too far out there. I loved it.
Warning language and moderate violence and freaky as all get out.
