best movies, popcorn

There’s nothing like a good movie to provide entertainment and a way to spend a relaxing evening. Actually, the time of day doesn’t really matter; in fact, I often enjoy watching movies on a Saturday morning or a Sunday afternoon. (I seem to be able to get through a whole film at those times without [ keep reading ]

There are people in this world who can do some amazing things. I recently did a post about a guy who jumped more than five feet into the air from a standstill! No one in human history has recorded a higher jump. Today, we’re sharing more world records about some astounding “lowest ever” feats! For [ keep reading ]

‘Highest ever’ list will blow your mind!

highest ever, man jumping

Modern man has a fixation with extremes; have you noticed that? One of the greatest marketing schemes advertisers use is to make us think we’re getting more for less. Drive through your favorite fast food restaurant and you’ll see “extreme” choices. You can super-size this or mega-size that. Extreme speed, challenges and dares make for [ keep reading ]

Will Streaming Services Ruin Cinema?

Early last year, director Steven Spielberg gave a speech at the Cinema Audio Society. The speech was notable because Spielberg lamented the rise of film-quality movies on streaming services.

Why Action Movies are Good for the Movie Industry

This past year was a huge one for movies with wide appeal. Generally, that means movies that are action or family blockbusters, like “Avengers: Endgame”. Movie goers turned out in droves earlier this year to find out what happened to Iron Man, et al. (Don’t worry – I won’t post spoilers, just in case you [ keep reading ]

Fascination with Darkness is No Joke

Dolly Parton is a Treasure We Don’t Deserve

When I was a kid growing up in small town Saskatchewan, I remember Dolly Parton being the butt of many jokes. Her makeup was too heavy, her breasts were too big, her hair was too outrageous… She was just “too” everything. Meanwhile, she didn’t care what any of us thought and continued churning out country [ keep reading ]

The Super Bowl Halftime Show: Should Performers be Paid?

If you haven’t heard, Super Bowl LIV will be in Miami in February of next year. Though it’s still a bit early to make predictions on participating teams (ugh, come ON, Falcons), the NFL recently announced who will be headlining the halftime show (AKA – the reason I watch besides the commercials). Singers Jennifer Lopez [ keep reading ]

I Love Rewatching Shows and so Should You

rewatching shows

Netflix made it easier than ever to rewatch our favorite shows over and over and over again. Like a lot of other people, my choice of show is The Office, although I’m also partial to a good binge of Gilmore Girls. Honestly, sometimes I can’t think of anything better than rewatching my favorite shows and [ keep reading ]

The Good Don’t Live Long Enough

The good don't live long enough

A while back, I wrote the first article about losing talented musicians too soon. In the second of that series, I need to clarify that soon is a relative term. When it comes to the music that moves me — and so many others — life itself is too short. It’s not always a matter [ keep reading ]
