Entries for April 2008


I've maintained since W. was re-elected that the only way the Dems could lose in 2008 was if they nominated Hilary. This has been their election to lose for almost 4 years now, but darn it if they don't seem like they're finally getting around to doing it.... Among the many things that Hilary's insistance on staying in the race demonstrates is the primacy with which she views herself. She wants to be President so badly it is becoming evident she is willing to burn down the entire party to ...

This week: Benry deals with the changing of the rules in "The Shape Of Things To Come". LOST, Episode 4.09 The Shape Of Things To Come I. The Benry Identity A. When he jumped in the ol’ Dharma Port-A-Bear machine and beamed himself off the Island, he either missed his connecting teleport or he has a poor grasp of the climate in the Sahara region. B. The two horseback marauders who found Ben were probably Libyan or some other make or model of North African (aka not te...

“The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.” I distinctly remember going to see “Star Wars” in 1977. I was only 8 years old, but my parents took my sister and I to see the phenomenon. It was only showing at a single screen theater in downtown Lake Charles at the time, but we stood in line got our tickets and changed our lives. From the moment the...

If you never actually saw “Exotic” Adrian Street live this won’t do the man justice. Then again…maybe it will.

After yesterday’s carpet bombing of the “Star Wars” franchise I thought I should try to make amends to Hollywood. Summer movie time is quickly approaching. It’s that special time of year where Hollywood depletes most of its budget for the year in hopes that we’ll all line up at the neighborhood googleplex to see the latest spin on an old TV show or Previous Blockbuster Plus Number. I will. I love what we loving refer to around my house as “popcorn movies.&r...

When I was a kid, all the way through grad school, I thought working in the Foreign Service would be about the coolest thing possible. I didn't end up there...looks like that might be OK after all!  Check out this NPR post for a short rundown on the current state of affairs. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=19315183&sc=emaf It comes as no surprise that both numbers and morale are down. We've had no interest in diplomacy for at least 8 years now. The 'c...

....bands of all-time that is, but have never found a permanent resident for the No. 5 slot.  This band, as well as many others, moves in and out of it. I wasn't sure how well they'd held up, but then I popped in a double-disk retrospective (maybe called Metalworks??) and was blown away by three songs in a row. If these b-sides (well, one now obscure A and two B's) can sound as amazing as they did, maybe I should just go ahead and close the deal. I submit to you, Judas Pr...
