So back in April I did a post previewing the upcoming films coming out in 2015 and I think it’s about time I update the 12 people who read that post. I know you all have been anxiously refreshing the site looking for a new post from me. What Read more
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
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
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
Today we're posting this "Letter to the Editor" that we received this morning from someone whose identity shall remain anonymous. He's a veteran and currently a police officer in the city of Memphis. In light of the recent tragedy in South Carolina he just had a few words he Read more
Wise Guise Warriors... I'm back! A lot has been happening in the world since I last posted. I got lots of questions about all sorts of topics in addition to many things I've wanted to blog about but haven't had time. So, without further ado, here's a Monday Morning Read more
Disclaimer: I watched the show immediately after my favorite hockey team suffered a brutal loss. All comments and analogies will most likely reflect how upset I was at the time. I’m still upset, for what it’s worth. But hey, you know the old saying – it’s better to let a sporting event ruin your day/week/month than to put it in perspective with the grand scheme of life! On top of that, halfway through writing this recap I knocked over a 24oz tumbler of coffee off of my desk and directly into my workbag. So just keep that in mind when you feel like I may have crossed the line.
(Am I the only person in America who TiVo’d the Bachelorette to watch after the Stanley Cup Final?)
(Am I the only person on earth still saying TiVo when referring to any television recording? I don’t know why I do that – I never even owned an actual TiVo.)
This past Monday I felt an emptiness in my life. I knew it had nothing to do with my work or my personal life or not pursuing my dreams or anything like that, so I googled “the bachelorette 2015 start date,” and to my delight I found that it starts this coming Monday, May 18th!
The natural next step was to look for the bios. I had a cold sweat when I thought that I missed the bio release, but then when looking on ABC’s page I couldn’t find any bios except for Britt, Kaitlyn, and author of The Perfect Letter, Chris Harrison.
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 dates are locked in, but I’m sure some will change. There is also a section at the bottom for films slated for 2015 that don’t have a release date yet. Read more
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 a lot of help from Matt Moore of CBSSports.com) and break down exactly what you need to root for and against happening tonight.
Judging from the nearly 23 million views that Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” video already has, I’m pretty late to this party, so this post might be a few weeks behind. But that doesn’t mean I can’t talk about how great the song is. And let’s be honest, Jepsen made a masterpiece of pop culture with the music video. Read more
In 2012, in the fledgling months of The Wise Guise, I participated in a preview of The Masters. I wrote about my favorite parts of attending The Masters live and provided predictions for the Top 10 golfers to be in the Top 10 on the back nine on Sunday, when it’s well known The Masters truly begins every year.
I encourage you to check out that original post in addition to my reflections on Bubba Watson, The Masters, and life on the Monday after last year. But spring is here, college basketball ends, Opening Day wraps up, the NBA and NHL approach the postseason, and yet another Masters weekend approaches. I’d like to offer a few thoughts and reflections before we lay on the couch and let the sounds of Jim Nantz, that theme song, Butler Cabin, the roaring crowds, and the tradition unlike any other wash over us.
Nike’s newest ad, entitled Ripple, provides the perfect preview for The Masters in 2015.
Some say it simply serves as a tribute to Tiger Woods and the impact he had on the current #1 golfer in the world pursuing a career grand slam and his very own Rory Slam. Sure. That’s how they sold it to Tiger.
But for those of us who grew up with Tiger like Rory but have not been busy winning our own major championships, we see the ad for what it really is. It’s about an end of an era and the passing of a torch.
