Chappie Movie is Crappie I can’t recall ever having walked out of a movie theater before the movie ended–until yesterday when I tried to sit thru Chappie. The movie is horrible. Save your money. It’s set in 2016 and robot police are keeping the peace in Johannesburg, South Africa. This robot … I’m not even […]

MH370 and the Diego Garcia Theory I’m not much big on conspiracy theories, though admittedly, I still have trouble with the Magic Bullet JKF Theory, but I write today about my own self-discovery that seems to have a lot of smoke behind it–the involvement of the USAF Base Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and […]

Nick Saban and Urban Meyer Watching The National Championship Game I could see SNL doing a “What the Hell Happened” sketch with someone being Nick Saban and another Urban Meyer and them sitting at a bar drinking watching the National Championship game in January. Saban: “They were going to rename Denny Chimes to Saban Tower. […]

Another Massive DFW Weather Storm–That Didn’t Happen In more than 12 years in DFW now, I’ve come to learn that if the weather foke on DFW TV stations are on the air and now tweeting like Chicken Little, that I need to keep my expectations low. In fact, over the years, it seems like the […]

Veterans Day 2013: Thanks Dad, Mom and Families USAA, the military insurance company, has sort of backed into the theme of this post, almost by accident it seems, but in part because what they’re saying is true. When they have a dependent talk about “mine having been earned” through the service of another, they’re really […]

Mad Men Season 6 Apostrophe Lesson–It’s the ’60s not 60’s Mad Men starts in just a few short hours and already I’m about to SCREAM about one of my biggest punctuation pet peeves–the use of the apostrophe in referencing the time period of the show, the 1960s.  Notice I didn’t write the 1960’s. You know […]

NCAA Final Four – 75 Years of True Reality TV Some of my Facebook friends have been railing about how they’re ready for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament to be over.  Well, after today’s two games, and Monday’s final, they’ll have their wish. But let’s not go so fast. Today’s two games and Monday’s National […]

Zero Dark Thirty Reveals Flavor of the Truth We Will Never Fully Know If you’ve not seen the movie Zero Dark Thirty about the decade-long search for Osama Bid Laden I recommend you see it at least once.  Unlike The Hobbit or Argo, I’m not sure I’ll be going back again.  Though the movies rising […]

My Lincoln Movie Review I just returned from the movie theater and feel obliged to share a few words about the Stephen Spielberg‘s Lincoln, of which I just spent the past 2.5 hours watching, enjoying and now sharing that it is indeed, worthy of praise. Lincoln long has been one of my favorite presidents. Never […]

No spoilers here, but you need to go see the movie Argo starring and directed by Ben Affleck.  Like at the next showing. It’s that good. It was so cool to watch Ben Affleck walking into CIA headquarters at Langley again after his days there in the 2002 The Sum of All Fears.  This time, […]
