A Scintillating Scenario at CPAC 2020

In the midst of the sociopolitical and medical scare of the Chinese Coronavirus, thousands of Conservatives of various age groups convened for the annual CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) in DC. It was a fun and, at times, chaotic event, but also happened to be my first time attending, so I thought I’d share the… Continue reading A Scintillating Scenario at CPAC 2020

Re5: A Wonderfully Un-Racist Romp Through Scarytown, Africa

The Resident Evil series has always served to baffle, befiddle and befaddle me; certainly not as much as the Metal Gear series, but enough to cause concern for the future. I don't think I've ever successfully completed a Resident Evil game in the entire series. At the risk of being "gamer'd" to death, the excuse… Continue reading Re5: A Wonderfully Un-Racist Romp Through Scarytown, Africa

Top Ten Types of Paper

A lot of people like to post top ten lists. And generally, these lists are interesting to read, if only for the controversy they're sure to create. Top 10 dictators of Latin America? We could go all afternoon, debating between the likes of Peron, Batista, Castro, Duvalier, and what not. Top Ten Types of STDs?… Continue reading Top Ten Types of Paper

Guy Ritchie, Chi City, and Brain Crack

I recently attended a private screening of the (new to Blu-Ray) Guy Ritchie film Rockn'Rolla (by which I mean I rented it on Blu-Ray and watched it alone). As a director and storyteller, Ritchie stands out among the greatest. His forte is the modern British gangster films with urban flair and stylization; however, he does… Continue reading Guy Ritchie, Chi City, and Brain Crack

Over-Dramatic Readings From an iPhone

The more astute of you will have already known that earlier today, Apple conducted a press conference revealing their plans for the iPhone 3.0. For those of you who are currently in possession of an iPhone that you haven't dropped to the point of non-functionality, the rest of the world who are still painstakingly flipping… Continue reading Over-Dramatic Readings From an iPhone

You Will Watch (and Love) the Watchmen!

Yesterday I saw WATCHMEN in IMAX. I'm going to attempt to systematically lay out this "review" so that you can read the things you want and NOT read the things you DON'T want. At the very bottom, there will be a list of items that were in the comic but not in the movie...this will… Continue reading You Will Watch (and Love) the Watchmen!

My Heart’s a’Twitter

In this marvelous time of social networking, social news, and...ample alternatives to being "real life" social, one of the most underestimated and useful is Twitter. I say "underestimated" because, while it is ridiculously populated, it is mostly used by advertisers, companies, promoters, individuals who want an outlet to share their experiences and, well, promote themselves.… Continue reading My Heart’s a’Twitter

Murphy’s Tavern: A Place to Go

The last thing I want to do on this site is to start openly promoting anything aside from this site. Well, that's not entirely true. The last thing I want to do would probably be Judah Friedlander with a live bear trap lodged halfway up his rectum. Hmm...now that that's the alternative, open promotion doesn't… Continue reading Murphy’s Tavern: A Place to Go

Do We Need ‘Em?

Without boring you all with a laundry list of scientific terminology, facts and figures, I'll simply say that the Earth is relatively small. Contrary to popular belief, it has a finite amount of space in which all of us are meant to coexist. Fortunately, there are forces out there that ensure that many things won't… Continue reading Do We Need ‘Em?

Thoughts from an Insomniac

I have an appointment tomorrow at Drexel University's Sleep Center (although I realized that both times i heard confirmation voicemails from them, it was for different times...) so I thought I'd highlight (and lowlight) some of the many interesting things involved with not being able to sleep at night (or during the day).  Hmm...how about… Continue reading Thoughts from an Insomniac

Broad Street Hooligans?

Note: "Football" will be used in this article instead of "Soccer." So I just got finished watching one of my more recent obsessions: Green Street Hooligans. GSH is a movie about an American, Matt, who travels to England and is dropped into the violent, drunken world of football hooliganism for the English Premier League. Hooliganism… Continue reading Broad Street Hooligans?

The Dangerous Joy of Dr. Sex

Have you ever seen the movie Kinsey? A scientist and professor who studies wasps develops an overwhelming interest in sex and is immortalized by his writings on the subject.  His good-natured wife is brought along for the ride as Our Hero's interest grows less academic and more practical.  Nice movie.  Strong plot, full-frontal male nudity,… Continue reading The Dangerous Joy of Dr. Sex

From My Cold, Dead Hands

"For the next six months, Al Gore is going to smear you as the enemy. He will slander you as gun-toting, knuckle-dragging, bloodthirsty maniacs who stand in the way of a safer America. Will you remain silent? I will not remain silent. If we are going to stop this, then it is vital to every… Continue reading From My Cold, Dead Hands
