What were the books in "Shot Caller"


The movie "Shot Caller" was an interesting look into the inner workings of the psychology of prison.  Near the end the main character meets The Beast.  He mentions specifically the book "The Human Animal" and says he would send over some books on psychology.  This isnt your typical Oprah book club reading list.  These books are to help aid people to convince others to do anything for them and that includes kill all of this in the pursuit of power.

One big thing about prison is there is plenty of time to read.  A lot of these inmates will read anything and everything in print.  They really like book clubs.  Books get passed around and read over and over again.  I was curious what books the movie would feature in this reading list.  The only one they made obvious was the one mentioned by The Beast.  The others were briefly flashed on screen shown here.

Here is a list of all identified books in the image from the movie.

Holy Bible
The Human Animal - Desmond Morris
Aztec Revenge - Gary Jennings
The Book of Five Rings - Miyamoto Muashi
The Art of War - Sun Tzu
Nietzsche
Of Mind and Matter
Stephen Coontz  -Recreational reading
Hemingway - Recreational reading
The book on top of the far stack was unidentifiable.

It is interesting that some books are not here.  That could be due to the fact that prisons restrict certain works.  They did consult some inmates for insights on prison life so this list is probably fairly accurate.

The difference of white(in this case) reading lists and black reading list is interesting.  Had this been a movie based on blacks the reading list would have been slightly different.  What is interesting is what is the same.  Sun Tzu is always on the reading lists of people looking to make power moves.  It also shows the mutual respect of the ancient Chinese.

Example:
Holy Bible would most likely be the Quran

Other psychology and power books:
48 Laws of Power - Robert Greene
The Prince - Niccolo Machiavelli

Fun Facts:
In the movie you will find out why inmates call the butt the "prison purse".  Aside from what is placed in there in the movie, I have heard accounts of shampoo bottles, deodorants, cellphones and many other things you might find in a womans purse.

Who is that girl with Drake?

I never knew a body could do this.  Plus that smile.. To bad she is with a 2nd rate rapper/pop whatever he is.  Latest news on him is he has an ex-pornstar pregnant.  GOT'EM! Im sure he will be paying for that for the foreseeable future.

Nevertheless, she is hard not to look at. Next Kardashian?


Superhero suit?


Looks like a Street Fighter character!

Who is that girl from the ATT commercials?


There was this ATT commercial and this girl was an ATT representative.  She was kind of dorky in a cute way but beautiful.  The internet was all a buzz trying to figure out who she was.  Just another beautiful actress we have yet to see much of until now!

Her name is Milana Aleksandrovna Vayntrub





Ren Fest Nerd

Top 5 smartwatches for smart home users in 2017

Everyone is talking about the latest smart home hub.  These hubs are great and even better with voice control devices which now includes the Amazon Echo Show, but unless you plan on having one in every room of your house then you might be in a position to not have access to certain voice options. 

What I would like to propose to you is the integration of Google Assistant in Android 2.0 for use between hubs.  If you are into a smart home then you are probably into tech in general.  So why not get a watch that feeds that tech hunger?  With Google Assistant these watches are capable of activating all of your devices connected to your SmartThings Hub including thermostats.  Talking to your wrist is much easier and more organic than pulling out a phone.  It also avoids the unlock phrase and the pulling out your phone to unlock it. 

Here is a quick video on how you can activate your smart home with Android 2.0:




Here are the top 5 smartwatches for the smart home user. Rated by Amazon Rating stars.  The Samsung Gear S3 is not on this list.  While it is a great watch if all you want is a smartwatch it lacks Android 2.0 in favor of its in house Tizen OS.  I wish Samsung would stop adding Tizen to their products.  They have great products, but Tizen integration holds them back.  

Number 5

LG holds the distinction of being one of the first watches with the official Android 2.0 update.  Google tends to bounce around loyalties.  The watches styling is kind of mundane and pretentious.  The crown location has been giving users problems at the 3 o'clock position most newer models are moving it to the 2 o'clock to prevent wrist activation because it is a button as well as a rotation controller.  

Number 4

We have heard that Fossil moving into smartwatches was more of a last ditch effort as opposed to the company evolving.  This can indicate bad things. If the move isnt more organic you have under powered three generation old tech like Apple. Also, the news is the venture hasnt worked well for the company.  We never liked their analog watches anyway. ;) 



Number 3 

The Huawei is a great looking watch and offers that S3 Frontier, non-"Sport" look with all of the features and smart home control of Android 2.0.  A great watch for everyday use at home and away. This is the XcerptShow TOP Pick The lower rating in our opinion is due to maturity.  It is one of the more recent additions to Amazon. The number one watch is no slouch though.  It is also a great deal! 


Number 2

This watch is rated slightly higher than the Huawei, but it is just a little to fancy for our tastes.  This might be good for a business professional that is low key into tech but wants to blend in with his peers.  It just doesnt have that get out there and do something look. We would also caution picking this watch because rumors from Asus are that the Zen Watch line will be discontinued.  This is important because it would also lose technical support for future app development and bug fixes.  

Number 1

We have included both versions of the Moto 360.  We are huge fans of Motorola here at Xcerptshow.  The Moto Actv was almost a decade ahead of its time.  The 2 watches are styled and equipped for different types of people, but essentially the same user experience.  They are the most highly rated Android 2.0 smartwatches on Amazon and they have been around for a while.  Dont worry, Motorola has indicated they dont plan on bringing another version to market anytime soon.  So they are still completely relevant.  Top pick on Amazon by reviews but go back up to 3 and give the Huawei another look. ;)
