stern warning

Howard Stern is on vacation again. And again. And again. And I’m starting to feel ripped off. I’m one of the millions who bought Sirius radio for the express purpose of listening to Stern. Ever since 97.9 FM out of Wilkes-Barre dropped him a few years back, it left a hole in my daily radio [...]

if you were stranded on a desert island . . .

A buddy posed an interesting question today, as was first asked this morning on Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio. I like Mike and Mike about as much as PETA loves Michael Vick, but Sean Salisbury and Eric Kuselias were subbing today so it was semi-tolerable and Stern is on vacation (more coming [...]

round and round she goes

Catching up on some stuff while I’m still drunk in euphoria after Ryan Howard’s home run Tuesday . . . First of all, with this new blog site, I just wanted to let everyone know there are actually links in here, it just doesn’t show up like it probably should. We’re working on it. So [...]

checking the list twice

Kiss it good-bye, people. Summer is going, going, gone, which makes the summer movie season just about done too. It was pretty much done after Rush Hour 3 ended anyway, what with the junk we’ve been seeing on-screen in the last two weeks. I did a summer movie preview on May 4, the Friday that [...]

fall tv part deux

Monday though Wednesday is the hard part of the new television season. Figuring out the rest is child’s play. For reference, here’s the schedule grid of the new season and easily the Web’s most thorough description of every new network show premiering this fall:  THURSDAY 8-10 I’m almost giddy thinking about Earl’s stay in prison with [...]

fall tv: part uno

I stumbled across a composite schedule for the new fall TV season, and already, I’m drooling. While it only contains the major networks — sorry HBO, FX, Comedy Central — it’s a pretty nice season that’s shaping up. A crowded one too. So it takes some planning. This is Part 1 (Monday-Wednesday) of my proposed [...]

looking for something (anything) with a pulse

Ah, August. When the dog days get doggier, the humidity gets turned up . . . and studios throw their junk at us. It officially starts this weekend and doesn’t let up as we’ve got a pretty uninspired group of movies coming at us. There really doesn’t seem to be anything opening wide worth spending [...]

really real world

Congratulations, MTV. Just when I thought you couldn’t get any lower, you surprise me once again. And by lower, I mean better. After a ho-hum “Real World” in Denver, the seminal reality show is back with a vengeance, this time in Sydney, Australia, the third time it’s moved out of North America for a season. [...]

what’s a video?

The jokes and snide comments have been done to death. “Why do they even bother giving out the VMAs anymore? It’s like ESPN giving out Australian Rules Football awards.” But it’s gone beyond that now for the MTV Video Music Awards. Sure, videos disappeared from MTV seemingly eons ago, prompting funny jibes about the seemingly [...]

more movies

Caught a couple more movies, two of which are part of the five in competition for best feature. Unfortunately, I’ll only be able to see three — or maybe four — of them however because of scheduling and screening conflicts. The afternoon slate: Pangs: A 15-minute short, but darn interesting for those 15 minutes, if [...]
