looking to 2011, the nic cage horror and why the british are stupid

I didn’t plan on blogging today, but I found a ton going on I thought everybody should be apprised of. Plus, for personal reasons, I may not be blogging next week. OK, screw that, I hate when people just say person reasons. My wife and I are having our first baby, and Jenna Grace is [...]

emmy hangover

Talk about an awards show that needs a makeover. The five reality show hosts turning around the host the Emmys was a bad idea from the start, and congrats to those hosts for pulling off the impossible — actually being worse than people thought they would be. That’s up there with ‘Nova over Georgetown in ’85 [...]

weekend preparedness kit

I wanted to make sure I got something in today because I have no idea whether I’ll be able to blog on Monday. Or whether I’ll even be alive. Ryder Cup weekends always take a lot out of me. It’s not as bad as it used to be seeing as I’m at work and sober [...]

fall season watch list (wednesday)

Back on track to dissect the new TV season, with today’s installment: WEDNESDAY I’m officially calling this “DVR Catch Up Day.” I doubt that’s gonna be any network’s slogan for the night though. “Who needs Lipstick Jungle when you’ve got Chuck burning a hole in your DVR!

me and VMAs announce break-up

I’m over the Video Music Awards. It’s official. It’s not that I’m too old and sit around all day complaining about what it was like in my day. The problem is the show doesn’t deliver like it used to. Instead of looking forward to it and being riveted, I more looked forward to the Phils-Mets [...]
