I'm prepared to be disappointed with Episode VII

I'm a Star Wars fan - I used to think of myself as a Star Wars nerd, but then I went to Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim this last year and discovered that I am not ready to really be ...

Darth Darth Binks - fan theory or reality?

For a while now, there has been a theory floated out on the internet that the polarizing Star Wars character, Jar Jar Binks, was actually a Sith Lord. Some suggest that it isn't merely a fun hypothesis, but that ...

Comeback in the air tonight - Phil Collins unretires

Phil Collins is back - I'll give you a moment catch your breath.

For those of you who are like me and haven't been the same since he announced his retirement in 2011, the nightmare is over. I know ...

Christmas is cool again? Billy Murray gets his own holiday special

I grew up watching Christmas specials starring Bob Hope. True confession: never was really my thing. But there were like four channels and I'd watch just about anything that the television set deemed worthy of showing me.

Today, Netflix ...

Virtual Youth Group

The idea of going to church can be an intimidating proposition for a teenager. Already wrestling with identity issues and struggling with the idea of fitting in, the notion of entering yet another building where one has to face peers ...

All By Myself - solo artists that eclipsed their bandmates

The snubs are just as good for business as the nominations - as much (or even more) attention is paid to who/what didn't make the cut as there is speculation over who/what will win the awards.

Supposedly, this was a well known "secret" in the comedy world. The power Cosby wielded allegedly made not only the victims compelled to stay silent, but fellow entertainers as well. All of this is magnified by the aggressively wholesome image ...

As a Guns N Roses fan, I'm rooting for them to break up before Coachella - hopefully moments before they are supposed to go on stage. That would solidify their image as pure Rock N' Roll dysfunction. They are better ...

Ok, @Jack Albert - I'm digging the discussion. But this Han shot first thing is incorrect - Lucas created the character and chose to have him shoot first. I saw it with my 7 year old eyes. The character of Han ...

Thank you @Patrick Zimmerman - abject horror is the phrase I've been looking for. One of my bigger concerns with this new film is that Abrams, being hyper aware of the prequel backlash, will try to too hard to pay ...

#9 - pills

 In reply to Movie Mad Lib

I like the idea of Christmas music more than the actually songs - for the most part. I only really celebrate one tune this time of year and it's this.

This post brings up an interesting dilemma for those in my generation - we often talk about the amount of time the youth spend in front of electronic devices, but we forget that many of us were TV junkies waiting for ...
