all growned up

There’s a chance your Internet could be moving slowly today or that you may not be able to access the gossip pages you usually check. As with everything in life, you can blame the Cyrus family for that. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus or whatever she calls herself is crying that Vanity Fair and photographer Anne Leibovitz have [...]

It’s been a crazy week around here with the Sharp transition and everything, so I’ve been a little lax on the blog. But I came up with some links that are just plain good for the soul. As always, if you have a cool link you wanna sent to me, email it is msadowski@sharpmag.com. But [...]

joke’s on us

We’ve been had, people. Howard Stern listeners, that is. We’ve all been had. The blow-up we heard last April 10 where beloved-but-eternally-grumpy sidekick Artie Lange left the show?

he is legend

Still catching up on some 2007 movies: I Am Legend: I’m convinced Will Smith is the next Harrison Ford. He’s going to be known only as a big-time action superstar who opens movies like no other — but he’s never going to get the respect he deserves as an actor. Sure, Smith will get thrown [...]

the real charlton heston

Quick shots: I’m at odds over Charlton Heston’s career. I didn’t see the best of it (Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments), I saw him as a guy who just randomly showed up in stuff too long to be a cameo and too short to be a starring role (Any Given Sunday, True Lies, Tombstone, Wayne’s World, [...]

why south park absolutely rules

South Park episode of the year so far on Wednesday — it was the one we had been waiting for so far this season. Perfectly biting and satirical, genius creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker became the first TV show to fully attack the writers’ strike, and took a surprising side. Even as writers themselves, [...]

hot town, summer at the movies

What’s got two thumbs and loves that guy who carries a whip and wears a cool hat? THIS GUY!!! (I’m pointing to myself.) Apparently, I’m not alone. With officially one month until the release of Iron Man – the first tentpole movie of the summer — it’s time to get ready for those summer movies that [...]
