BODUM French Press

Who loves fresh and flavorful coffee? Well, do we have something to tell you about! For those of you looking to make a simple cup of coffee and have it taste as good as the stuff you get at a coffee house, then BODUM is for you. They are pioneers in design and class when it comes to coffee and those who drink it. One of the main things that BODUM boast is their French Presses and the ease of use when it comes to making coffee with them.

I can personally attest to how simple it is to use one of their French Presses. They are not only functional, but beautiful in design and aesthetics. I would like to note that you will want to get rough ground coffee that is thicker than the stuff that Starbucks sells in bags in order to reduce the grounds that show up in your delicious cup of coffee. Thin and finely ground coffee will sneak its way through the filter little pieces at a time, so trust me and go with some rough ground coffee.

If you are looking for flavor that surpasses most all other coffee makers and a product that not only does its job, but looks good on the tabletop when not in use, then you will for sure want to take a look at the wide range of French Presses and products offered by BODUM.

Harvester Of Light Preview

Many of you may know this already, but for those of you who do not, I am working on a second book that will be out sometime later this year or early next year. The book is called Harvester Of Light and while I can’t give away too much information, it is set in an ancient forest where a dark secret is hidden, a secret that everyone’s lives are based around. It is an epic tale that will be about twice the size of my book Jim. While I do not feel that either of the books will be better than the other, I do feel that this one is going to be a must read! I am working very hard on it and for all of my supporters and readers out there I have put together an exclusive teaser trailer just for you!

Arrested Development Returns As Netflix Exclusive

The much loved comedy, Arrested Development, has taken a leave of absence after it’s previous cancelation. For years fans of the short lived series hoped and rumored a return for the Bluth Family. It has been officially announced in a press release that Arrested Development will be making it’s return to your home sometimes in early 2013. The only new quirk about the show is that it will only be available as a Netflix exclusive. Netflix has been pondering over exclusive content for some time now and has even begun filming a few series that only they will have, but this has come as a surprise to most everyone. While some fans rejoice, others fear that Netflix will be stingy with the rights to the show and deter the newly planned season from ever seeing DVD format. The future of the show is still under wraps, and not much more has been announced in regards to the new season or if Netflix will allow it to be sold as a DVD after it debutes, but one thing is for sure, this could mean many more new subscribers for Netflix, just for the return of Arrested Development!

The Hunger Games Movie News

The Hunger Games, a book series by Suzanne Collins, has become very popular recently. This series includes the books The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. The series is set in the future and is pretty much about these kids who are randomly selected from their home districts to fight to the death in an arena. Now, since this book has become so popluar Lionsgate made it into a film.

Filming for the movie began in May in North Carolina. It was wrapped up in early September. The movie should be released in March but it hasn’t been said where Lionsgate will hold the premiere.

Only one additional movie has been confirmed so far. Catching Fire is to be released on November 22, 2013. The company has a deal that encompasses four movies even though there are only three books. However, this does not mean that four movies will be made.

This movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Amanda Stenberg as Rue, Alexander Ludwig as Cato, and Lenny Kravitz as Cinna. There are eight movie posters out depicting these characters.
