The Simpsons Movie

At worse, this movie is a 90-minute episode with the A Story going to Homer, the B to Bart, C to Marge, D to Lisa and the rest of Springfield receiving the E but it all ties together from beginning … Continue reading

Year of the Homer is over

Yesterday, my Year of the Homer officially ended. Thankfully I didn’t have any Homeresque moments at work (I’m probably more like Moe there), in marriage, in friendship or bowling (it’s pretty hard to injure yourself through the Wii). Oddly, the … Continue reading

Happy Birthday to Kate who isn’t Kate Bush

Happy Birthday to another fellow Leo! We July Leos are way better than August Leos because there are fewer of us, you know, just like the Star-bellied Sneetches from the Dr. Seuss books (another childhood memory Jim Carrey will eventually … Continue reading

RIP Tom Snyder

NPR didn’t make the announcement until the second cycle of stories but it was sad news to hear. I didn’t know he was sick, I figured he was still hosting some kind of show on cable. Besides being the butt … Continue reading

1987: My 19th birthday spent seeing Philly my way

Twenty years ago, I spent the Summer in the Philadelphia area at my parents’ place and thankfully, it was the last time I ever lived with them. After eight months of the dorms and having little adult supervision, being back … Continue reading

Guitar Hero 80s isn’t a home run but it’s still a hit

It’s finally here, the video game I dedicated my Web site’s color scheme to for July. Then again, I only received one complaint on how “painful” it looks. First, GH 80s is an expansion for GH II not an independent game as Vice … Continue reading

Happy 67th Birthday Bugs Bunny

Bugs is looking pretty good for his age even if I can’t think of any new cartoons he’s in. I think there have been some toys (I have the “What’s Opera Doc?” action figure) but I’ll probably have to wait … Continue reading

Four years and counting

On this day (more like evening), Somara and I were married at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Who said it wouldn’t last? Probably my parents, then again, they’ve never been right about human nature, especially about my friends. Nothing too special … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Christina!

The first special event of July 27th! Christina is doing pretty well, having a marvelous Summer in Hawaii. Her husband is performing in a play about Wyatt Earp but I don’t think he’s the infamous lawman. Her daughter is visiting … Continue reading

2002: Nemo comes home

Tomorrow is a pretty eventful day for the site on all the things that July 27 means so I’m posting this landmark early, the day Nemo came home to become part of our family. Over five years ago, Somara was … Continue reading

This Day in History written by Fox News and the 700 Club

I do what I can to keep my site positive but today the History Channel really pissed me off with this old retread of ignorance. It must’ve been written in the Eighties when the media still wasted air time on listening … Continue reading

Stan Ridgway

Another fine, memorable show at the Cactus Cafe last night! Stan Ridgway celebrating the 25th anniversary of Call of the West, Wall of Voodoo’s most famous album and the one with the single “Mexican Radio.” However, the show was a big … Continue reading

Boucher, the prodigal goalie returns to Philly

It’s great to see Brian Boucher back in the Flyers’ fold, even if it’s with their AHL franchise the Phantoms. He has plenty of NHL experience despite his career being tumultuous (which is really standard for most goalies except Brodeur). … Continue reading

Blade Runner 25 years later

I always thought this movie came out in 1981 but then again, that was the year Raiders of the Lost Ark appeared and Harrison Ford couldn’t make movies so quickly then. Despite this guy overanalyzing it, especially why there aren’t any Black … Continue reading

Recycling bottles may soon pay off

Finally a story about recycling plastic bottles! As a member of Ecology Action for almost five years, containers with the recycle “1” and “2” symbols on them are the most common things next to paper I see people throw in the … Continue reading
