ROAR! if you like bad tv

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

or Males in Mail, Part the Second Thanks to the magic of Netflix and the utter lack of discrimination shown by Universal’s DVD division, I have been watching ROAR. *snork* What, you never heard of it? Heh. I’m not surprised. Although 13 episodes were made, it ran for only about 5 on FOX back in […]

Or, Males in Mail! This is too cute. He needs more outfits, though. I think he needs jeans and a black t-shirt.

Washout

Monday, September 25th, 2006

That was what this weekend was. For once, we didn’t see any movies, tho I kinda-sorta want to see Flyboys and Fearless. I don’t think I’ll get to it, tho. If I don’t see a movie opening weekend, I don’t see it at all. Friday night we went to see the touring production of Spamalot. […]

Is there a homicidal maniac in the house?

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

Because I’d like somebody to kill me. We are having such a craptacular week here. BW has had a bunch of nights straight of class and/or having to do hard homework, last night he spent 4 hours off getting the car inspected/repaired, and tonight when we could be relaxing, we have to go out, which […]

The Legend Lives

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

Once in a great while comes an artist whose work is so pure, so timeless, that it reaches out to not one but many generations, resulting in a career spanning decades. He creates music that appeals to everyone, but at the same time his work seems to speak directly to me. I swear, listening to […]

The streets were dark with something more than night…

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

Ahhhh, neo-noir, how I do love it. As planned I’ve seen both Hollywoodland and The Black Dahlia in the past two weekends. Both movies that visit the sacred ground of Chandler, Hammett, and a hundred low-budget RKO crime pictures. That mythic Los Angeles of the 30s-50s, as it existed only in the imagination….beautiful but rotten […]

Birthday Revisited

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

A drive-by Birthday hotting courtesy of The Man himself, Jeremy Irons! Yes, Mr. J is 59 today, but of undiminshed hotness. Not only still hot, but still raking in the awards as he just won an Emmy last month. Of course, if you ever visited my Jeremy Irons Site, you’d know that already.

That Thud You Hear

Friday, September 15th, 2006

Is the sound of Fall falling. At least according to the calendar. Weather-wise, it’s still 80 here which totally blows, because I am extra psyched for fall and Halloween this year! I don’t know why. I mean, when it comes to Halloween, I usually run around acting like a 5 yr. old on Xmess morning. […]

It Happened One Birthday

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

Happy Birthday to Claudette Colbert! I’m not sure really what to write about CC. I mean, I don’t have to cook up an impassioned essay to try to get you to like Claudette Colbert, do I? Everybody likes Claudette Colbert, don’t they? She was the original Cleopatra, way before Liz Taylor and that bloated Techicolor […]

So Whatcha’ Want?

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

A Tasty Survey

Monday, September 11th, 2006

Alright, now this is a survey (stolen from LOUP) that I really enjoyed answering….coz’ it’s all about food! And I love to talk about food! Let’s hear it for food, ladies and gentlemen! —————————————- How do you like your eggs? Only way I like eggs is hard-boiled then made into egg salad. Otherwise…ACK! Like eating […]

Media Mambo

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

In my very scientific monitoting of the local news outlets yesterday, I found that “Dead Mayor” is still trumping “Big Ben Has Surgery” as the lead news story/above-the-fold article. Frankly, I’m surprised.¬† I have a feeling that, at the tv stations at least, they are gnawing their own legs off in frustration that these two […]

Fate is Inexorable

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing? Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow; The days have […]

Friday, September 1st, 2006

He currently has a movie out in theaters (The Groomsmen, also starring Ed Burns and John Leguizamo), he wrote, directed, and shopped around to film festivals his […]
