#OBY (Others Before Yourself)


First, you had the “Rockabilly Smack You Silly Chicken Chili.” Then, there was “Salato’s Garlicky Potato and Roasted Tomato Soup.” Finally, I brought the “Classic Chicken Noodle Soup with ‘Tis the Season’ Spices.” Those were the three soups I created to win Franklin Road Academy’s First Annual “Souper Bowl,” Read more

Growing Up with Peyton


A few weeks ago, I never thought I'd see Peyton Manning take another snap, much less throw another pass or another touchdown. Much less win another playoff game. Much less defeat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots to win another AFC Championship. (Unbelievably, after all the drama, Peyton 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 the iconic wrestler would live on.

Celebrating America With Movies: Fourth of July Viewing Alternatives

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

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 heart tells you to do.

However, if you’re a movie junkie you can always find a way to make time to squeeze in a movie viewing or two. Maybe you can even choose to treat yo self and extend your celebration of America a few more days. In any case, what I wanted to do this year is create a list of movies that you should consider watching to celebrate America in all of it’s glory this weekend.

There are lots of great viewing options that I’m sure you’ve watched over and over to celebrate the Fourth of July (Independence Day, Rocky/Rocky IV, The Patriot, Saving Private Ryan, etc.), but I wanted to propose some other options for you of films that really embody America to me. These films celebrate the American Spirit and from my perspective are underseen and underappreciated these days. I know how much you wholeheartedly love that President Whitmore speech, and it probably still occasionally gives you goosebumps like the rest of us, but maybe just this year consider viewing just that two minute clip and then investing that other two and a half hours in a new story that might just make you love America even more?

I’ll just leave this list here and let you and that bald eagle sort through those feelings. Read more

Examining Our Love-Hate Relationship with Taylor Swift

2015-02-12-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 always seems really annoying at awards shows and interviews. Honestly, I don’t think she deserves half the trophies she’s received, either.” 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.)

Let’s get to it…
