The Day Hulkamania Died


Professional wresting fans were told by Hulk Hogan for years “Hulkamania would never die.” No, despite any new nemesis who would come his way and claim he was the one to end Hogan’s powerful marketing brand, the Hulkster would end up with his hand raised, and the appeal of Read more

Celebrating America With Movies: Fourth of July Viewing Alternatives


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 Read more

Examining Our Love-Hate Relationship with Taylor Swift


Two years ago, I revealed to the world I had a sad, secret love affair with Taylor Swift and her music. It was a difficult moment for me, as I had publicly bad-mouthed the pop star for years. “I mean, can she really sing?” I would question. “And she Read more

The Importance of Henderson, Tennessee (and all Hometowns)

“Everybody has to have a hometown, Binghamton’s mine. In the strangely brittle, terribly sensitive make-up of a human being, there is a need for a place to hang a hat or a kind of geographical womb to crawl back into, or maybe just a place that’s familiar because that’s where you grew up.

  “When I dig back through memory cells, I get one particularly distinctive feeling—and that’s one of warmth, comfort and well-being. For whatever else I may have had, or lost, or will find—I’ve still got a hometown. This, nobody’s gonna take away from me.”

Things Worth Dying For – Reflections on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Faith, Featured, Misc. Posts, Politics | Leave a comment

1942_d-day_normandy_map

It’s tough to express feelings about D-Day as someone who was born over 40 years after June 6, 1944. Most historians refer to it as a turning point in western civilization. When I think of D-Day, I think of images. The opening scene of Saving Private Ryan. My visit to the eerily peaceful beach in spring 2010. But I also think of words – FDR’s D-Day prayer over the radio, General Eisenhower’s speech to his men, and more.

I’ve made it somewhat of a tradition here at The Wise Guise to commemorate D-Day with a reflective post. I’d urge you to read my best friend Jay Salato’s post from two years ago reflecting on the speech he had the opportunity to give at the commemorative ceremony at the U.S. Memorial Cemetery at Omaha Beach. Then, I’d urge you to re-visit my post from last year and listen to/read FDR’s prayer and Ike’s speech.

This year, I want to share two more pieces of history that I’ve recently found to continue the impossible task of commemorating the courage and sacrifice of those men who charged Normandy Beach.

Bitten by the Green-Eyed Monster

Posted on by Grant Oster in Featured, Misc. Posts | Leave a comment

We all fall victim to the green-eyed monster. It has plagued mankind since the beginning of time. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that the first reference the green-eyed monster dates back hundreds of years to Shakespeare’s Othello.

O, beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock. The meat it feeds on.

Envy-Green-Eyed-Monster

As I am not a geneticist or a psychologist, I won’t go so far as to say that the human race is genetically predisposed to ‘keep up with the Joneses;’ however, I don’t believe I’ve ever met anyone that was immune to jealousy. Most times, being envious of a friend, family member, or co-worker is nothing to fret. We all do it…my wife gets jealous when her friends post pictures of recent vacations on Facebook, my brother is envious of his friends that don’t have to worry about paying out-of-pocket for college, and you were probably jealous of the guy driving the new Cadillac ELR that pulled up next to you at the red light this morning on your way to work.
