hey, remember the 80s?

There’s something to be said for driving in to work half asleep, blindly going through the radio stations before randomly hearing “Army with harmony . . . ” and know it’s gonna be a good day. So let’s have some fun with the links today and keep them all upbeat. You know a good way [...]

more banned ads

Looks like PETA has some company. An ad that was supposed to be in the Super Bowl program for a Web site that facilitates extra-marital affairs also got the boot. I can definitely see why the PETA ad was banned, and I wonder if there was ever any intention of getting it on the air [...]

eat your veggies!

We’ve entered the 80s portion of the TV month — the “Me” weeks. You know, Lie to Me and Trust Me? They premiered? On TV? In the last week? Were crickets always this loud? Anyway. Short version, I like the pilots of both of them. Lie to Me (Wednesdays, Fox): I always say that it’s [...]

getting his story straight

The question to me wasn’t if George Clooney would return to ER. It was only how they would shoehorn him in. The man has spent the last 15 years crafting his image as the coolest, smartest, nicest guy in Hollywood. If he didn’t give up a measly day of his life to shoot a couple scenes [...]

looking ahead . . . far ahead

The 2011 summer movie season already was more crowded than the Duggar house. Now comes the news that the third Christopher Nolan-Christian Bale Batman may be coming to theaters then. Bad idea. If everything plays out how we’re hearing it now, 2011 would be the biggest summer movie season ever, dwarfing the 2007 summer that [...]

scouring the net

I’m ticked at myself that it’s taken so long, but I’m trying to upgrade this blog a little. Actually, that only means one thing — I’ve put links on the right-hand column of the page. I’m fine with plugging these sites, b/c it’s where I get a good chunk of the news I’m going to add to [...]

booooooooooorrrrrrrrring

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . . Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . . (Shaking head) Wha– Oh, I’m sorry, I must have dozed off there reading the Academy Awards nominations. Zzzzzzzzzzzz . . . Sorry. I just dozed off again thinking about the nominations. I’m trying my butt of here to get excited, but it’s not happening. Let’s face it [...]

I bet you thought me to recap all the inauguration balls, right? Ha! Not a chance. I watched 5 mins of one on ABC to catch Alicia Keys trudging through yet another rendition of No One, which now makes what was once a good song officially driven into the ground. That was all I could take. [...]

january tv (part 2)

I accidentally missed last week when I set out to do a blog every week about the January TV premieres.   Whoops.   Big deal, so I missed the chance to rip on American Idol yet again.   I’m ready to amend that with some big shows starting this week, and one I failed to [...]

paul blart: box office champ

I try to avoid talking about sports here, but that Eagles loss stings. I heard a great discussion on the radio on my way in this morning. Is the Andy Reid Era in Philly a success? At what point do you say, “It’s great making the conference championship, but c’mon!” I think that time is [...]
