Life vs. Art

Note: First time in a while since I chimed in on the ol’ blog. When I started this two-plus years ago I envisioned blogging on a regular basis. Turns out the combination of work, raising six and four-year-old boys, and home-owning makes blogging an easier-said-than-done hobby. For the few who have followed my infrequent musings, […]

Favorite Decade of Your Life?

My 6th hour class and I had an interesting, albeit, off-topic conversation today. If you had a one-way ticket on a time machine, would you go back in time, or into the future? General consensus mostly favored heading back in time. The past is known. The future is uncertain. Considering this through a smaller lens […]

The Walking Dead

I like to think I don’t get surprised often. At least not positively surprised. While on vacation this week, my wife and I finally got caught up on the first half of the latest season of AMC’s The Walking Dead. I must admit…..I’m positively surprised! AMC debuted the show in 2010 with a 6-episode mini-season. I was […]

Annual NFL Coaching Carousel

The first Monday following the conclusion of the NFL’s regular season……a day known to head coaches as “Black Monday.” Most seasons see around seven or eight coaching changes. As of today, the number following the 2018 regular season has already reached eight, and a few more could be possible. The Cleveland Browns and Green Bay […]

Die Hard: 30 Years

So Christmas Eve and Christmas Day have passed. Each year the cable and satellite stations treat us to the usual collection of classic Christmas movies. A Christmas Story, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Elf…..you know the routine. One topic that has gained massive traction in recent years is the debate over whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas […]

The Great American Franchise

Last month saw the theatrical release of Creed II, the latest in a long list of sequels from the Rocky franchise. Though I haven’t had the chance to see it yet, (and probably won’t until its home release) I’m probably like millions of others who can say I’ve seen every other film in the series’ history. Ranking […]

The Frightful Four (Part 1)

It’s once again that time of the year: Tricks, treats, costumes, and of course, frights! Every year ushers in AMC Network’s month of horror flicks, and Halloween night usually offers up some scary classics on various other channels up and down the dial as well. (ok, showing my age with the “up and down the […]
