To borrow some of the comic genius of HisWhiteHotBrilliance Obama, it is the “silly season” ( apparently He’s unaware that in politics silly never ends, which precludes calling any specific time a “season” ).
For movie-going that time of year is now, a time when such movies are foisted upon us that even the studios allowing their release know full well how truly TRULY awful they are. It’s a virtual cinematic dumping ground and has been year after year. If there are even two minutes of any semblance of redeeming value in No Strings Attached, or Just Go With It, or. . .

[ This is completely NOT timely. You could sue me for Breach of Blogger Protocols except not only have I never professed to being a "blogger", I've professed quite the opposite. So in lieu of suing me you can just shut up. Obviously I didn't finish it in time to post it in a timely manner but I spent a sh!tload of time on it, it's pretty damn good and, most importantly, I'm coming up on my deadline to not let a week go by without a new. . .

My beloved Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Those Angels. The Angels of Curious then Curiouser Offseason 2010 – 2011.
After mighty swings and misses on free agents Carl Crawford and Adrián Beltré (the Curious) there was time enough for everyone to get from denial-to anger-to bargaining-to depression, all the way to the grudging acceptance that We Will Win With What We’ve Got.. . .

First, there will be no “spoiler alert”. If you do not wish to encounter any “spoiler” then you should do what I do: don’t read reviews. Still, I’m not going out of my way to “spoil”, it will just naturally happen in the course of discussing a film, won’t it?
So, I read zero reviews prior to seeing Black Swan and I have read two reviews afterwards, appropriately, one extremely positive (white!) and one extremely. . .

If ever anyone decries the use of fear by, uh, a certain group of people, you can almost guarantee that they are part of a, um, different group of people that opposes the first group, frequently through the use of, (you know it’s coming), FEAR. Fear the decriers of fear as they are surely amongst the foremost mongerers, purveyors and peddlers of it themselves (I myself do not wish to alarm; I’d go with something like, “be wary of”). . . .

I do wonder why we can’t be done with the controversy of abortion already. You want one? Go get one. You don’t want one? Have the kid. Just, can I be left the hell out of it already?
Everyone knows women are free to have an abortion should they choose to do so. If you don’t like it, then you probably won’t be having one. If you don’t want anyone else having one, . . .

I was forced to broach this subject recently. It was foisted upon me, as He is foisted upon us. He, of course, is His WhiteHotBrilliance, the guy that’s been playing the role of the President of the United States for about a year. How this particular mind arrived at, Obama- A Being So Bright (Ya Gotta Wear Shades!), is the story of the 2008 presidential campaign, the one that sucked me back into the political arena after swearing off of it for good. This is purely from memory so. . .

As stated in the ‘About’ page (except I call it ‘Having To Do With’), the intent of this site was initially for the writing practice. I am not a writer; or I should say, I am not a Writer (Writer’s getting paid to Write), but I do aspire to the Writing so it makes sense to try to practice on a regular basis.
Now I find there are other ways this endeavor is beneficial to this particular mind. . .
