The Muppets

I watched The Muppets the other night and thought it was pretty funny. It reminded me of 30 Rock– a behind-the-scenes look at a hit TV show where you get to see the relationships and the drama that plays out behind the curtain. It was kind of raunchy, but still funny. I already knew what… Read more »

The Republican Debate 2015

So I watched the Republican debate, or as I called it, the Republican clown car convention. I watched all of the crazies come out and beg for the presidential nomination. Let’s just say the candidates belong on the island of misfit toys. Donald Trump. He’s obviously the Captain of the clown car. He’s insane. I… Read more »

Talent

So this week I spent about four days working on a programming issue for a customer. I was totally stuck on how to program a specific feature. Now, I’m a pretty good programmer; I’m probably ten times better than most of the programmers who do what I do. But after a few more days of… Read more »

The Crusades – American style

As today is Father’s Day, I didn’t have time to complete the usual rubbish that has become synonymous with my blog. “But I promise, next week it will be much longer, and you will SO enjoy it!” (Which oddly enough was a lie I used in college.) In the meantime, think about this little tidbit…… Read more »

The Easter Bunny is an Infidel

Goodness gracious, things are really heating up in Dearborn, Michigan. It seems a Presbyterian church had the gall to hand out a flyer at several public schools advertising their local Easter egg hunt, and the Muslim community is up in arms. Muslim parents are worried that the church is trying to convert their children with… Read more »

Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey

One of my favorite new shows of the season is Cosmos, a glittery remake of the old Carl Sagan series about science and innovation. This time however, the series is chock full of visually appealing graphics, lively animations, and with all due respect to Carl Sagan, a narrator who doesn’t come off as a know-it-all…. Read more »

Peter Parker became Spiderman after being bitten by a spider, but no such luck for Jamie Coots, the Pentecostal pastor from Kentucky who handled poisonous snakes as part of his weekly sermons. Pastor Coots died this month after being bitten by a rattlesnake, probably while God was off in his screening room watching a double… Read more »

The Afterlife

The other day I was asked for my opinion on “existence”. Yeah. I couldn’t believe it either. My idea of deep thinking is deciding what flavor ice cream I should buy before sitting down in front of the TV and smoking a bowl. Ok. I’m exaggerating. I have been trying to curb the smoking as… Read more »
