Batman Begins

Well, they've pulled the old Star Wars/Silence Of The Lambs/Escorcist trick again and took you back to the beginning of a series, created a prequel if you will. Only this time, it worked very well indeed. If any of you have seen the last couple Batman yawners, you'll be especially glad to hear that.... Sign in to see full entry.

Where To Get Ideas For Blogging

A new blogger, U.G.G., asked me: "Where do you find all this news? I guess I've actually made it a point to avoid the news - too much marketable crap meant to rasie panic and fear. But, from your Blogs I get the parts that are interesting." So, I answered this (and hopefully it will help a few of... Sign in to see full entry.

Garden State

What a well-developed dark comedy. Garden State is the work (literally) of Zach Braff, the young and goofy intern on the hit NBC sitcom Scrubs, who wrote, directed and stars in this very funny film. One of its executive producers was Danny DeVito, known for his dark comedies ( War of the Roses and... Sign in to see full entry.

Casualties Of War (Not The F**king Penn/Fox Movie, Either)

Should have known, but didn't think about it. CNN has a few pages dedicated to the casualties of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Check it out and post it to your favorites list so you can see how many of our children are dying for the pride of a true American Idiot (not the song or album by Green Day,...

Art For Art's Sake

I just read about forums for artists who can't wait around for an agent or for someone to sign them up. These forums are basicly free or have minor fees and get you started -- or at least get your name out there. For artists, there's www.deviantart.com. For musicians, there's www.CDbaby.com and...

Man On Fire

Director Tony Scott has created a nearly three-hour masterpiece in this down to earth, gritty, ultra-realistic movie about a man (Denzel Washington) in search of redemption. Washington plays ex-CIA operative John Creasy, a man who has nothing to live for and tries to drown his memories of his past... Sign in to see full entry.

Friday Night Lights

What an inspirational movie! Here is a movie that provides the message to grab the brass ring while you can, while the opportunity presents itself, because it may never swing 'round again. Friday Night Lights is the story of the 1988 Permian Panthers high school football team from Odessa, Texas.... Sign in to see full entry.

There May Be Hope For Rock Yet

I just bought the album Get Born by the Australian rock group Jet. And you know what? This may be the best damned first album since the Gin Blossoms debut. Now, I love rock. I love guitar-driven music. Don't get me wrong, all the other instruments are important also, but I especially enjoy a well... Sign in to see full entry.
