Winter break is almost upon us. With the weather turning colder (and rainy for some reason), it may be time to sit down on the couch with a refreshing beverage in one hand and the remote control in the other for some quality show viewing. Here are some recommendations I have if you are an Amazon Prime or Netflix subscriber. Enjoy and happy viewing!

A Cat in Paris: A cat in Paris leads a double life and helps his owner avenge the death of her father. It’s whimsical, dark, funny, and cute all at the same time. Available on Amazon Prime.

The Black Kung Fu Experience: The Black Kung Fu Experience focuses on how a group of African American pioneers became respected masters in a subculture dominated by Chinese and white men. It’s a very interesting and informative documentary and I highly recommend it if you’re into martial arts like I am. Available on Amazon Prime.

Mel Brooks: Make a Noise: What can I say that hasn’t been said about the master. Watch this documentary if you love Mel Brooks like I love Mel Brooks. Interviews with his friends, colleagues, and the man himself about his life and his work. Available on Netflix Instant Streaming.

Steel Leg Stretcher. Why would I buy something like this?

This is what it looks like:

Increasing flexibility is the goal

When I was a kid, I was pretty flexible, and doing center splits were no problem. Fast forward more than a few years later, and it’s not as easy toΒ  have that amount of flexibility, even with regular sessions of yoga thrown into the mix. To aid in my goal of getting all the way down to the mat and increased range of motion in kicks, I bought a leg stretcher. The high end ones start at 150 dollars and up, but as I’m merely road testing them at this point, I got one on Amazon made by Tiger Claw for about 20 bucks. It’s identical to the above picture.

I’ll post a review when I try it out. Hopefully it will be a positive experience πŸ™‚
