Ella discovers online gaming

Ella has started using our laptops to type words and play online games. I have a feeling this scene is going to be familiar for the next dozen years.

True Grit – Coen brother style

I absolutely love the Coen brothers, so I get excited about every movie they do, but how can you not be excited about True Grit? Allegedly, this is a much closer adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, then that of the 1969 John Wayne movie. The question you now have to ask: Is Jeff Bridges […]

I need to get away. Far, far away.

I have been working crazy long hours for a while now and its starting to take its toll on me physically and mentally. I need a break. Just a couple days away and unplugged would do me a world of good. Luckily, that is the plan this weekend – relaxation here I come. I can’t […]

Relish the journey

That’s you, drops of water. And you’re on top of the mountain. A success. But one day you start sliding down the mountain and you think, “Wait a minute. I’m a mountain top water drop. I don’t belong down in this valley, in this river, in this low dark ocean with all these drops of […]

Dinner with Schmucks I saw this movie months ago, but just wasn’t sure what to say about it. It was just so, so. I would be curious to see the original French film this was based on, I am guessing it would be a different humor all together. I had high expectations and it did […]

Ever heard of The Avett Brothers?

Neither had I, until I saw this video today (it’s from Banaroo): Here is a quick way to hear some more of their songs: http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/search/songs/?query=Avett%20Brothers (I love Groove Shark)

Is there really much else you need in life?

James Franco is a busy and bizarre man

I just read a crazy article about James Franco, the actor, artist, student, etc. Here is the “busy” part, I couldn’t believe his ridiculous academic ambitions while still working on both tv and movies: As soon as Franco finished at UCLA (graduating in just 2 years), he moved to New York and enrolled in four […]
