I’m Sorry But Kat Dennings Line Reading Sucks

Kat Dennings on 2 Broke Girls

I didn’t care for the sitcom ‘2 Broke Girls‘ that debuted on CBS last season. The plots were tired, the jokes were obvious, and the acting generally was bad. The other night I watched another episode and while the show has shown some improvement since season 1, Kat Dennings, who plays Max, is the weak link on the show and it’s just a deal breaker for me.

Electro Swing – A New Sound To Me

Posted on by

album cover for Swing RepublicI’m a geezer. I’ve loved Big Band and Swing music for a long time even before the swing resurgence in the 1990’s. I also like house music. I was wondering if the two could be merged and they can. It’s called Electro Swing which fuses swing styles with house production techniques. I really like it and you should too.

Prometheus: Good If You Were Born Yesterday

Posted on by

poster from the 2012 film PrometheusI finally watched Prometheus for the 2nd time the other night. It was actually my first time all the way through. The first time I stopped watching just as the cast started exploring the alien structure because I got bored. After watching the complete film from start to the end I can say that this is a decent movie if you have no prior knowledge of the “Alien” mythology.

Religious Music Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

Posted on by

cover to Amy Grant's Age to Age album 1982I’m not religious myself but I can enjoy some good music of a religious nature. Religious music I like include contemporary worship music or pop songs with a religious theme. Although on occasion I can listen to something old like a Gregorian chant or something like that. Here are some of my favorite religious music from over the years.

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. It’s when we gather with friends and family and give thanks for what we have. Some of us have large family dinners with turkey and side dishes. We also watch football on TV. The holiday also falls during the November TV sweeps period so many shows have episodes that have a Thanksgiving theme. My all time favorite is an episode of the sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati titled “Turkeys Away”.

Proof I bought the album

Whoa! Blast from the past. While looking for a different song I stumbled across Ocean Blue again. I knew I had one of their CDs from back in the day and sure enough in my Box-O-CDs I found their debut album from 1989. The first track “Between Something And Nothing” is why I bought it. It sounded like Echo and the Bunnymen and Cocteau Twins and I just found out Ocean Blue wasn’t from the UK they were from Hershey, PA

Wedding Band – Could It Be More Than The Title?

Posted on by

image of Wedding Band show logo 2012TBS premiered a news series Saturday night titled “Wedding Band” starring Brian Austin Greene and Peter Cambor. It is billed as a comedy drama but it isn’t jokey jokey but more in the same vein as the previous TBS show “The Boys”. The pilot didn’t bowl me over but it wasn’t terrible. It actually has a great cast but I’m concerned about the show being an hour for each episode and the concept doesn’t seem like it could last more than a season if that.

Castle Episode Made My Head Hurt

I’m a fan of Castle on ABC. I like the tone of the procedural with bits of funny sprinkled within well thought out plots that keep me guessing. That was until the episode this past Monday 10/29 titled ‘Probable Cause‘. While the funny was still around, the plot of the episode as well as the ending just didn’t meet the usual level I expect from the show.
