Grading All the New Movie Trailers Out of Comic-Con


I traveled to visit family this weekend, so as new trailers came pouring in over the weekend from San Diego's Comic-Con, I was only able to watch a couple of them. I'm sure many of you may be interested in seeing them, debating them, and discussing them. So I Read more

Bright Spots: Chauncy's Chance


So I just happened to see Memphis, Tennessee briefly trending earlier today on Facebook (it appears to have already dropped half an hour after I first saw it), and so I obviously had to see what was going on. I was thrilled to see it was for another positive Read more

As a White Man, I now understand why the O.J. Simpson Jury did what it did


It was a hot Friday night in the summer of 1994. My parents and I had just walked into our house from a lengthy little league game of mine. Despite hours in the heat, I was wound up from the excitement of a win and eager to dive into Read more

Bright Spots: Memphis Teen Pays For College Like A Boss


Every now and then the media chooses to spend a little time on positive stories to share with the general public. I think it's important that we, as consumers, show up with website hits and/or media views to reinforce this positive publicity in a society dominated by negative news Read more

In Defense of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


Imagine the following: a popular movie genre is categorized by smart but formulaic films, enjoyable and entertaining while also going out of their way to explain everything explicitly to the viewer and not engage any level of mystery or metaphysical questions. Another film comes along in this genre and while Read more

Another season has come and gone, and one thing was clear from start to finish: America loves Ben. Admit it, you love Ben. It doesn’t matter if you are a single girl, a married woman, or a guy who says he just watches because his wife/girlfriend makes him and blah blah blah… You love Ben. Also, guy, you are about to watch a month’s worth of college basketball games not even involving your team, so the least you could do is watch America’s greatest reality show for 2 hours – sometimes 3 – every Monday – and sometimes on Sunday – from the first week in January until the middle of March. Well, some things sound worse when you put them on paper. Anyway…

America loves Ben

America loves Ben so much that he’s already polling higher than Kasich and Rubio.

This week’s recap of The Bachelor is the “I’m bored on a plane” edition. I’m writing this on a flight from Nashville to San Francisco, so if you are reading this and thinking that I have really drifted off a few times, you’d be correct! This week’s post is (unofficially) sponsored by almonds from the airport Starbucks, half of a can of Diet Coke courtesy of Southwest, and also brought to you by the reclined seat in front of me. How is this still a thing? “Ahh, I’m way more comfortable with my seat reclined an extra 4 degrees. Now this is luxury!” said the guy sitting in front of me, probably.

I’m just not feeling it this week.

I know that’s not the best way to grab attention at the beginning of a blog. If you want people to click on a story about The Bachelor you should title it something like, “What Really Happened to Emily’s Thumb will Shock You!” Or, “How to survive being trapped in Wrigley Field for 9 hours with a guy who doesn’t understand sarcasm,” or maybe, “How many crew members of The Bachelor did Olivia actually swallow whole? The REAL number might surprise you!” Man, we miss you, Olivia. Also, the real number was 12.

But why lie to you? I’m just not feeling it this week. So I think the best thing to do is just… wait, what’s that noise? OMG it’s Ben on his pontoon boat!

Coming up on this week’s Bachelor recap: I give Olivia’s eulogy at her funeral, we say goodbye to the girls who were sent home, and we figure out who the remaining six girls are if they were one of your friends on Instagram!

But first, I must apologize that this post is coming on a Thursday instead of earlier in the week. I know that The Bachelor is on TV on Mondays and you have already forgotten about it by Thursday, but I was busy. No, not busy with work, but I was tasked with giving the eulogy for Olivia as we said goodbye to her life on The Bachelor.

It was a beautiful service. I know that most of you couldn’t make it, so I’d like to share the eulogy that I gave at the funeral.

I kept trying to write this recap on Tuesday, but every time I would get in a rhythm, Olivia kept coming in my room and asking if she could steal me for a second. Then I drove to a coffee shop to get some writing done, and Olivia popped up right next to my parking spot and asked if she could steal me for a second. Then I was trying to watch The People vs OJ Simpson, but Olivia kept appearing on my TV and asking if she could steal me for a second. Even later I was trying to read before going to sleep, and as soon as I opened my book, Olivia popped out of it and asked if she could steal me for a second. GO AWAY, OLIVIA. Is there some way the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus can come cast a spell on her to make her disappear?

In this week’s episode of “I’m not that girl you saw earlier, that’s not me, I’m not crazy,” Olivia is still a part of our lives, Amber whiffs on her 3rd chance of reality TV marriage bliss, and a certain girl that looks just like another girl gets dumped in her own living room, but first…
