Rectify – The best show you aren’t watching.

Rectify – The best show you aren’t watching.

“I think we should banish expectations and re-instate wonder.“* Consider it re-instated. Season three of the Sundance Channel’s show “Rectify”  wrapped up last night with a few tears from the actors (and this viewer) and an uncharacteristic hint of optimism. For the past month I’ve tried to muscle up words to describe how good the Continue reading Rectify – The best show you aren’t watching.

We Suffer Alone

We Suffer Alone

I’m writing from a place of sadness. A kind of empty sadness unlike any other I have ever known. I lost my mother recently. Well, it’s not like I misplaced her, she passed away. And wrestling with my emotions surrounding it is, on the best day, odd. On the worst? Painful. These days are the Continue reading We Suffer Alone

Good News/Bad News

Good News/Bad News

The good news is that I’ve made Gold Status in the Hilton Rewards Program. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but according to Hilton it’s something to be celebrated. The bad news is that my mother has suffered a “serious heart attack” (as opposed to the mild ones?!). She’s got a respirator down her Continue reading Good News/Bad News

President Obama is on WTF Podcast

President Obama is on WTF Podcast

Typically, I hate this shit. I don’t think a sitting president should do talk shows, but I LOVE the fact that Marc Maron is interviewing a sitting president. It’s that type of stuff that makes me LOVE this country. For real. POTUS on WTF. Check it out. It’s worth it, especially after last weeks crap.

(sigh) They’re at it again.

(sigh) They’re at it again.

Comcast still doesn’t give a f*ck. They’re still the largest Telecommunications lobbying force in D.C. to the tune of almost $17 million dollars in 2014 lobbying for Telecommunications…by way of comparison, they spent $100,000 lobbying for television. Guess which category the Internet falls under? Control the media, control the message. This is happening now and you Continue reading (sigh) They’re at it again.

Stick the Narrative

Stick the Narrative

In gymnastics, it’s called stick the landing – v. phr. – to finish an athletic, gymnastic, or other sports performance with an ideal pose or stance, especially after a jump or leap. In media, let’s call it stick the narrative – v. phr. – to adhere to a particular message or thought despite contrary evidence; Continue reading Stick the Narrative

CBS news correspondent Bob Simon died tragically on Wednesday night. New York Times columnist David Carr died tragically last night. Two tragic days for American journalism.

Untitled #14

Only a couple of weeks left! You know, I’ve certainly told my share of lies through the years but one thing I have never lied about? How much I fuck-ing hate Valentines day. This isn’t the type of disdain I reserve for “Two and a Half Men”, Adam Sandler movies or Katy Perry songs. No, Continue reading Untitled #14
