Stop Calling It Mainstream Media, Already

Written by on 24 February 2017

It’s become a cliché already, a cheap way of winning an internet argument (as if that’s possible) but words really do mean things. Whether we determine that language informs thought or thought informs language, if we can’t agree on what words mean, we can’t communicate. When certain terms grow out of their meanings, either through […]

Robots in Our Life: Wall-E Versus Duckburg

Written by on 23 February 2017

It’s an incredible testament to human innovation: the minute we discover something to be possible it just becomes a matter of tweaking that technology to really make it something fantastic. It still amazes me that in 1903 the Wright Flyer takes a little fwiiitt flight of 120 feet, and just ten years later we’re up […]

Weakened Update

Written by on 23 February 2017

The buzz is that Saturday Night Live is exploring a prime time news comedy show spinning off their Weekend Update segment. Saturday Night Live never shied away from political parody and perfected “fake news” decades before Stephen Colbert took it to a new level with a bloviating Bill O’Reilly character. Going back to 1992, Saturday Night […]

Meme Therapy

Written by on 21 February 2017

Many craptastic things exist in pop culture; however a good meme isn’t one of them. I don’t have a cat, nor would I ever, but I have to admit, after a bad day, just a few minutes on CHEEZburger Cats can help me unwind and clear away the nasties. It’s my therapy and one that can […]

Cultural Sensitivity Fail

Written by on 17 February 2017

  When I think of cops in Texas, I think of no-nonsense, ‘get the job done’ law enforcers who don’t play the social justice game while in the performance of their duties. I need to re-calibrate my sights. About a week ago, an eight-month-old was left in a locked car in a movie theater parking […]

The Danger of Erasing History

Written by on 17 February 2017

Across the country, erasing history has become a movement, especially with educational institutions, an attempt to suppress the damning nature of the Democrat party.  Yale University recently announced its decision to rename Calhoun College, a move that Yale’s president had previously refused. Apparently, the school has reconsidered and the institution will be now named Grace Murray Hopper College. And, […]

I Watched Miss Sloane So You Don’t Have To

Written by on 17 February 2017

Watching Miss Sloane is an exercise in endurance unlike any movie you will ever experience. It’s longer than Robert Altman’s 3-hour epic Short Cuts, the Director’s Cut of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, and Andy Warhol’s 320-minute experimental film Sleep put together. I started watching it on Monday morning and […]

A Day Without Economic Illiterates

Written by on 16 February 2017

Today, Thursday February 16, 2017 will be a day marked by history. It is a day we finally realize our opponents, the fanatics who oppose all restrictions to immigration, and claim everyone should be allowed in, are illiterate. Well, they are economically illiterate, anyway. They have declared today “A Day Without immigrants.” The goal: to […]
