2016 Oscars Hot Takes

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movies | Leave a comment

OK…I’m going to try to make this as short and sweet as possible so that I can close the book on the 2016 Academy Awards. A couple quick notes before we dive in: I love Chris Rock but I thought his material was just okay. I both wanted and expected a bunch of race jokes, but I think we can all agree we reached a point pretty quickly where it became overkill. Before I go any further…I’m all for championing …

Second Annual Groucho Movie Awards

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | Leave a comment

Welcome back, movie nerds! Last year I started a new tradition of hosting my own annual movie awards that I deemed “The Grouchos”. This name is obviously meant to be an homage to Groucho Marx, and is doubly fitting because I tend to get snarky when it comes to discussing movies. Also, the more I learn about the Oscars voting process, the more grouchy I get with that as well. Anyway, last year’s post can be found here, and I …

I first want to state that I fully believe that America, and this great holiday in particular, are meant to be celebrated outdoors. Not necessarily in those ridiculous looking American flag shorts you bought online a few years ago to “stand out” and then dug through your closet to find late last night to wear again today after partaking in that case of Sam Adams… but who am I to judge? You just do whatever that bald eagle that lives within your …

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Entertainment, Featured, Movie Previews, Movies | Leave a comment

Alright, so before we dive in, I want to acknowledge that I got a little carried away and there are a lot of movies listed below. I set out on this journey because I had no idea what to expect from the movies in 2015 and finished my research beyond excited for what’s to come. It appears as though we’re in for a great year and I hope that many of these live up to their billing. Most of these …

Need To Know: The Memphis Grizzlies And The NBA Playoffs Scenarios

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Basketball, Featured, Sports | Leave a comment

Alright folks, it’s time to buckle up for the NBA Playoffs! That means it’s time for new Growl Towels, drum lines down Beale Street, and finding new reasons to hate every other player on every other team in the NBA. As you surely know by this point, all of the seed positioning is still up in the air. And it’s SUPER confusing because there are so many moving parts. However, I’ve tried to compile everything you need to know (with …
