The Terminal

The Spielburg magic is still there. So is the Hanks magic. It is abundantly evident in The Terminal, a beautiful piece of filmwork where a temporary immigrant (Hanks is just visiting the United States, New York City in particular) finds himself in the diplomatic limbo of personae non anything and is...

The Worst Author

I have written a list of books I believe are among the best novels ever written, and in my humble opinion, those I listed are the best. I plan also to write a list of worst or most overrated novels. But first... I would like to nominate for worst author of all time... Can I get a dru -- nevermind,... Sign in to see full entry.

Tracking Terrorism

In my readings I have come across a website that may be of interest to those alarmed enough or curious enough to keep tabs on the growing threat of global terrorism. The site is the home of the Search for International Terrorist Entities (SITE) and can be accessed at www.siteinstitute.org. Sign in to see full entry.

The Greatest Novels

I make no bones out of the fact that I love a good list. Remember the Book Of Lists books? Those things were great. Full of trivial tidbits that might come in handy at a Trivial Pursuit tournament, but generally worthless for anything else. Personally, I am a list maker. Not like chore or to-do...

Unforgettable Forgettable Promotion

I am a stickler for logical progression or cohesion. And I do not claim to be the most intelligent person writing (or reading or, for that matter, in relation to anything specifically), but I do draw the line on obvious screw-ups. I mean right up in your face, stupid mistakes. My favorites are... Sign in to see full entry.

Jack And Diane In Love

I just got up from watching Something’s Gotta Give. It is an excellent movie. Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton were superb. Even Keanu Reeves and his totally deadpan deliveries could not cause a bad moment in this film. Frances McDormand, Amanda Peet and Paul Michael Glaser round out the rest of the...

Listing The Great Opinionated

Let me tell you: I love a good well-couched opinion, even if I happen to disagree with it. Sometimes, if it is sound enough, I may even be swayed to change my own opinion of a given topic. However rare that may be, it does occasionally happen. And who better to shape opinion than opinionated people.... Sign in to see full entry.

Shit Lists

Shit Lists. Ever been on one? Sure you have; we all have, at one time or another. I have made a career out of staying on at least one shit list for the last two to three decades. You can land on one by just being yourself or being not quite yourself (or by having multiple personalities). You can get... Sign in to see full entry.

Lists That I Loathe List

Now, I like a good poll, ranking, or listing. They can be quite informative. But there are some lists that I find intellectually mind-numbing, superfluous, unnecessary, and/or a pain in the ass. The following are a list of lists that I loathe (and why): · Obituaries – lists of the dead. I always... Sign in to see full entry.
