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

My sincerest apologies for the delay on this post – my real job that actually pays me money got in the way. Don’t worry, I have found a way to prevent this from happening in the future. I set up a Kickstarter page that opens every Monday, so you can login and donate to my cause up until midnight. If I have at least $5,000 raised by midnight, then I will write a recap and post it by noon on Tuesday. If not, then you can expect a recap at some random hour on Wednesday or Thursday.

The Kickstarter page can be found at:

Fatherhood, Faith, and Film

My son, John (Jack) Joseph Williams III, was born on October 10, 2014. If you visit my social media page or run into me, it’s clear how much I love Jack. And most times, you’ll find me quickly veering away from my usual favorite topics of discussion (politics, film, TV, sports, and books) and talk as much as possible about Jack and being Jack’s father.

I’ve been hesitant to blog about my newfound fatherhood, though, for a variety of reasons. 1) I have no wisdom to offer or insight to provide. If anything, fatherhood simply humbles you and makes you more in awe of God the Father and his love for us. Like marriage, you begin to grasp slightly more yet still only a sliver of the all-encompassing love, grace, and sacrifice of God the Father and Christ the Son. 2) No matter what I say, it won’t be as hilarious as Seth’s “10 Things You Need to Know About Babies that Doctors Will Not Tell You.” 3) Fatherhood is the best thing that’s ever happened to me… but I don’t want to be THAT guy.

Yet here I am, a little over three months into parenting, and I’m blogging about fatherhood. What brought me to this point? Well, like most things with me, it all started with George Bailey.

MAROON-5-SUGAR

Earlier this week, Maroon 5 released their video for Sugar, a catchy, hook-filled, bubble-gum pop of a song. Just to clarify, no shame here, I think it’s pretty good. Whatever. Read more

For a full list of nominees, go here.

Alex: No “Lego Movie”? I mean, seriously Academy. No “Lego Movie”?

It was the snub of the morning we certainly didn’t see coming. Sure, things like “Nightcrawler’s” Jake Gyllenhaal getting the boot in favor of “American Sniper’s” Bradley Cooper were a surprise. We’re used to late-in-the-year flicks coming in and snatching of nominations from early releases, though. Read more
