Eve Ain’t What She Used to Be…..Shattering the Hollywood Woman

50saprons

In the beginning, Hollywood created women… as the fainting ingénue in the arms of a mustache twirling villain or the Mata Hari seductress using sexuality as a way to exploit men and gain power. Women were the love interest, the comic relief, the damsel in distress to make the hero look good.Then came the Mrs. Cleaver/ Donna Reed phase of shiny coiffed women in pearls and heels bustling about their perfect homes, cooking dinner and hanging on every word pouring from their all-knowing hu … [Read more...]

Death Comes to us all: Interview with David Ury

Death

(David Ury is an actor, writer and magna specialist. His most famous role was being crushed to death by an ATM on Breaking Bad. We here at the Rogue loved that show, so we jumped at the chance to read Everybody Dies, the book he wrote with Ken Tanaka (are they the same person? Hmmm). Yeah, it's a little odd, it's a little twisted, but darkly hilarious. Even more, it brings up the question, why do we avoid the conversation about death?)Western Culture avoids the topic of death. Why do you t … [Read more...]

God’s Not Dead…But Films Like This Should Be (Part 1)

Gods-Not-Dead-Facebook

Back when I was in college at the dawn of the 21st century, Christian films were just starting to explode onto the scene. Sure, religious-themed films have always been around to some extent, but it's been just under twenty years since the era of the "Hey, we're just as cool as Hollywood...no, seriously, we are!" types of Christian films began hitting the market. You know, the kind of films that cause churches and ministry groups to gush in anticipation of a release date while acting like … [Read more...]

If you asked him, he could talk about all three with equal passion.See him as he bikes around his small, Southern Indiana town. The world is alive to him, and somehow, he knows that G … [Read more...]

HamonNye Final Thoughts: This Debate Personifies What’s Wrong with America….

Many bloggers rushed to post their thoughts right after the debate. I couldn't do this because I drove through a blinding snowstorm, and gave up to find a hotel. As I drove home this morning, I sorted through what I wanted to say. The whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth and I needed time to process. So, after lunch and reading the latest issue of Green Lantern, I'm ready to give my thoughts.This debate personified everything wrong in America.I know this sounds like an extreme … [Read more...]
