The previews for next week’s double feature of The Bachelor were, as usual, far more interesting than the show itself. They featured a hypothermic ambulance ride, tears (naturally), and girls going nuts. Just a great way to start off a week. This week was BLEH as usual, but with so many idiotic people being filmed at the same time, there’s still a few shining moments.
First, Sean’s one-on-one, where he jet-set to Joshua Tree with Selma, a terrifyingly small Iraqi chick whose boobs were precariously close to bouncing out of her shirt the whole time. We couldn’t look away!

From the moment ‘Django Unchained’ was announced, I kept coming back to the same thought in my head of an ingredient in the filmmaking recipe that would cause controversy: the use of the highly touted “n-word.” Knowing the style of Quentin Tarantino, the racially charged term was sure to arise. Just how would the U.S. media react?
The answer: as usual, completely idiotic. No sooner than word got out from the first screening of the “n-word’s” heavy and frequent use in the film did we start to see dozens of stories pop up online, on television and in print questioning the prominent inclusion of the phrase once commonly used in our slavery-ridden nation. The freak out was in full force. My greatest fears for the film had been realized, and I worried the controversy would affect the commercial reception of Tarantino’s western. Read more
This post was written after viewing the movie, Dead Poets Society. If you do not want to spoil the movie before seeing it for yourself, it is recommended that you read this after viewing one of the best movies of all time.
Watching movies is a particular past-time that I thoroughly enjoy. Good movies, anyway. Recently, I had the opportunity to re-watch a movie that I am quite fond of - Dead Poets Society. Being one of my favorite movies, it captured all of my attention and had me thinking about it well after the credits rolled. Actually, this time, I saw a new side of the story.
Shortly after my wife Katelyn and I married we embarked on a journey together with the lovely folks of Dillon, TX. We were there for the wins, the losses, the divorces, the job changes, the births, the break-ups, the deaths, the murders, and the championships that comprised what is maybe the best show of the 2000s, Friday Night Lights. Since both of us worked and had other obligations that required our time, we managed to drag out five seasons of greatness over the span of about 10 months. * Read more
Oh boy! The Bachelor this week featured all kinds of goodies for our eyes and our ears. Per usual, the show remained inane and void of any tolerable content, but due to its predictability and redundancy, there’s plenty to write about!
Sean obviously took WhiteLesley on his first one-on-one this week, taking her to the Guinness World Records Store? Museum? Restaurant? Dungeon? To break the record for the “World’s Longest On Screen Kiss.” It sort of seems like a roundabout way of eschewing sexual assault, but apparently the record is something like, three and a half minutes, which inspired hope in all high schoolers who spend the majority of Friday nights making out in their basements.

As you may or may not have read in my post “Letter to My Wife”, I am making it my own personal goal to see my Memphis Grizzlies play in every away arena in the NBA.
I have already knocked out Oklahoma City and Boston, so this past week I made the trek down to Dallas to see them take on Dirk Nowitizki and the Mavs. Read more
With the Golden Globes in the rear view window, and the Academy Awards on the horizon, there is a lot of movie buzz going on right now. I figured this was as good of a time as any to bring back the Netflix suggestions series! Read more
On last night’s episode of The Bachelor, America got a taste for Sean Lowe: the new American hero. He looks like a firefighter and a virginal princess got together and conceived him while donating all their money to charity. Still– Let me preface by saying that I don’t love Sean, only because I find it difficult to have an overwhelming and debilitating crush on him. He’s just not my style. Too many muscles or something. But, when Chris Harrison dubbed him as the “most sincere” bachelor he’s had on the show yet, that has to count for something, right? Chris is divorced now! Sean Lowe is all he has!
Zero Dark Thirty: **** out of 4.
There are certain movies and certain years in cinema where we are reminded how silly and futile it can be to rank movies each year. Zero Dark Thirty is one of those movies and 2012 is definitely one of those years.
January 11, 1993 would mark the day cable television would forever change. That Monday, viewers watching USA Network’s nightly programming would witness the very first installment of what would become the longest-running professional wrestling series in TV history: ‘WWE Raw.’
