A few years ago, I wrote a blog post “Chasing the Stories” about my time as a newspaper reporter (read it here) and I received great feedback and blog traffic so I followed it up with this blog a few days later. My newspaper experience wasn’t long but it was memorable.In the last blog, I got a name wrong. I said Mike but our sports writer’s name was Ray. He was a good guy and wasn’t in the office every… Read more

This is a video I took with my phone not long after we came home from the hospital. We were getting a bottle ready for Natalie and she kept showing us how hungry she was. Read more

As one of the most chatty, dramatic people you know, it has seemed quite curious that such a life-shaking event such as the late December arrival of our first child Natalie came without a mention on this blog so far. Sure, she’s a poster child of Facebook and has been since a few minutes after her birth. But getting the time to sit down and reflect on the events of the past month has been challenging, to say the least.It’s… Read more

By DeWayne Hamby and Jimmy Stewart Delivered just in time for Christmas is Avatar, a film unlike any you’ve seen before. It is so technologically advanced that it feels downright exclusive, like the only one in a new breed of pictures that will revolutionize our viewing experience. Not only will the movie industry be forced to keep up with Avatar, but theme parks are surely scrambling already to figure out how to stay cutting-edge or ahead of the experience it creates…. Read more

Some disagree, but one of my favorite things about comedy acting is to see actors struggle through scenes trying not to crack up at each other. These moments are notorious in live shows like like television variety series The Carol Burnett Show and Saturday Night Live as well as in live improv. One of the reasons I enjoy them so much is I don’t feel as weird being one that also will spontaneously find something funny and have a hard… Read more

Even though we live in a society where air travel is common, we sometimes still have to stop and marvel at the miracle of us earth-bound humans inhabiting the skies. How does a plane gather enough speed to propel not only myself but 300 others into the air on a controlled path to another destination? That childlike fascination was what interested me most about the film Amelia, which profiles legendary female pilot Amelia Earhart. Set in the 1930s, it chronicles… Read more

Hi friends, you may have noticed a little more action on this blog lately. I’m going to try and revive it somewhat, using it as a place to share longer thoughts than Facebook or Twitter allow for. Perhaps even sometimes the posts will be more political than either of those, if only for the reason that I try to live more peaceably on those sites. Those of you who know me personally know that I have opinions that I don’t… Read more

Barely having remembered the book from my childhood, the movie version of Where The Wild Things Are wasn’t particularly enticing to me, but I was curious nonetheless. Being criticized more often for being a starry-eyed movie lover than a critic, I wondered how bad it could be. Critics were gushing over it and it has some type of hip soundtrack. Besides, I’d see it at my favorite theater for half price and eat potato skins.Perhaps the omen of the evening… Read more
