Whitney Reisser: American Idol Performances Worth Idolizing

Posted on by Guest in Featured, Guest Spots, Reality Check, Television | 3 Comments

Whitney here again with your latest dose of American Idol scoop.  This week’s post is going to be a little different from my first Idol Thoughts though.  Rather than review each of the remaining contestants’ performances from the last couple of weeks, I thought I would spend this week sharing my top 10 performances over the past 10 seasons.  As I said in my previous post, one of my favorite things to do is to re-watch old footage of Idol.  …

Tiger Woods: Back To Business As Usual

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Featured, Golf, Sports | 5 Comments

“He’s Back.” The cliche phrase of the day on Sunday. But you know what, they are right. I write this post as a former Tiger hater, Phil was my boy. My hatred stemmed from the have-nots, the things Tiger did better than him. I was jealous that my guy couldn’t perform as well under the pressure as Eldrick Woods. When the proverbial “shit hit the fan” moment happened with Woods I was disappointed, not in the evidence revealed, but how …

Movie Review: The Hunger Games

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies, The Imaginarium | 3 Comments

Everyone hates the typical “book is better” guy. Everyone loves to get to be the “book is better” guy. I’m glad to be able to report after seeing the movie, I don’t have to be that guy. I certainly don’t mean that as a knock on the book. I mean that more so to give the movie props. Look, they are going to cut things. They are going to change things. If you haven’t figured it out by now, that’s …

The Unintentionally Offensive

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Featured, Music | 1 Comment

People get offended. Some easier than others. There are plenty of musical artists who fall into the pool of offensiveness with things they say or do. More often than not, rappers are guilty of this charge. Tupac, Three 6 Mafia, Gucci Mane, Kilo Ali, N.W.A, Public Enemy and the list can go on for a while. I feel like this would be a great opportunity for me to insert a fictional Kanye West comment about George Bush and the unfair …

Movie Review: The Lorax (And Its Politics)

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 4 Comments

The Lorax –  **1/2 out of 4 Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
