Puppy Bowl, Kitten Bowl and Other Big Game Alternatives

Sunday is the big game, and many Americans are excited about the players, the game, Peyton Manning, buffalo wings, chili con queso, the frigid weather, and the commercials.  Show of hands here? Am I the only person in the world who could give a rat’s patootie about the NFL Super Bowl game? I speak blasphemously, but the only thing I care less about than the NFL is college football.  (There’s a backstory here that involves years of Big Ten rivalries, cold weather, insane over-the-top fans, but I’ll leave that for another day.) ...more

Happy (Belated) Birthday Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage just turned the big 5-0 the other day. What I like most about Cage is that his movies can be found on some of the best and worst movies of all time lists. Cage is an actor, and actors need to act. While some might say he doesn't always make the best choices, he is far from the only great actor who consistently turns up in crummy films (cough, Denzel, cough)....more

The Hobbit:  It's Always an Adventure with KyleI am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone. I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!  ~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit ...more

Bring on the Weekend

Hunger Games : Catching Fire

I read the whole Hunger Games series.  I can't wait to see the movie today.  Being a non-avid reader of fiction, this is a major accomplisment for me to read a current book and then wait to see the movie.  I am still stuck on Harry Potter books.  The movies make more sense after reading the books.  I will write a review afterwards....more
