Perhaps I’m just bitter because I’ve never stood onstage holding an award for some contribution to the betterment of society but haven’t award shows gotten out of hand? Don’t get me wrong – I’m not one to poo-poo the idea of being recognized by your peers. They certainly recognize you when you do wrong, so it’s nice to be applauded for things you get right. If I ever did anything right, I’d know how they feel and then I can… Read more

The first step is always admitting the problem. The ratings are in for the fall television season and they are less than spectacular. According to this article from the Wall Street Journal, Neilson ratings report a first week drop of 4.3% from last season. Some speculate the drop has something to do with the writer’s strike which ended the last season prematurely and viewers found other things to do with their time. Others cite an increasing competitive market from video… Read more

We saw the new western Appaloosa the other night and I really liked it. I don’t know why I’m enjoying more westerns as of late, but I loved 3:10 to Yuma and the Brad Pitt Jesse James movie that came out recently. Appaloosa fits right in with those but has a little more humor. The actors are also great. Here’s some of the review I wrote for New Man:Double Shot: Appaloosa The Lone Ranger and Tonto. Wyatt Earp and Doc… Read more

Found this blog today on beliefnet where the guy lists 10 Christian songs he grew up loving but is now embarassed to admit it, songs like DC Talk’s “Word 2 the Father,” Carman’s “Who’s In the House” and Audio Adrenaline’s “Big House.” So it got me thinking, because I have plenty of those, going back a few years more even. Here are some:”People In A Box” -Farrell and Farrell – A Devo-ish song about television that incorporates the theme of… Read more

I’ve been reading scathing reviews of this movie for the past week, but I saw it over a week ago and, for the most part, I enjoyed it. I guess with this positive movie review, I truly am a federation army of one:Take Me Back: Star Wars – The Clone Wars ReviewA long time ago, I left a galaxy far, far away. It wasn’t a conscious choice; I had all the souvenirs–action figures, model sets and even a talking alarm… Read more

I don’t know what has come over me but perhaps in the few weeks, it’s almost like I’ve thought “I’m not connected enough on the internet.” Because I’ve increased the amount of my internet networking accounts by 100% (or is it 200%? Maybe it’s 200% because a 100% would just be the same, right? I digress).Twitter has been the coolest thing lately. If you don’t have an account, sign up and let’s follow each other. I explained it to several… Read more

What might it mean that The Dark Knight, the second installment of Chris Nolan’s Batman revamp, is well on its way to becoming the biggest grossing superhero movie of all time? Does it underscore a new public sensibility about superheroes, identifying more with normal humans with extraordinary passions? Or is it the result of a perfect storm of good story, superb cast and capable production? Most likely it’s both.In The Dark Knight, Bale’s Batman grapples with the mob and the… Read more
