The Aristocrats

Watched "The Aristocrats" on DVD last night.  While a few of the comedians like Sarah Silverman and Jon Stewart made me laugh, I thought it wasn’t really a satisfying movie because its focus was too narrow.  There was also the … Continue reading

The Compleat Syd

In today’s West County Times, they reviewed the complete set of "Alias" DVDs.  There’s an interview with J.J. Abrams in which he admits they some of the storylines "didn’t pan out."  Now if he will make the same admission for … Continue reading

Songs for Depression

On Sunday’s "60 Minutes," there was a feature on a pill that you can take to weaken the traumatic memories stuck in your brain.  It seemed like the real-life version of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Kate Winslet was … Continue reading

Just Overcome Ridiculous Referee Calls, Baby

That referee’s ruling of a "forward pass" on that play in the Raiders-Chargers game yesterday was ridiculous!  The Chargers receiver caught the ball as he was falling down, was untouched by any Raider, and then he gets up and tosses … Continue reading
