It’s business as usual. The Admininstration continues to ignore its rampant scandals, another mass shooter terrorizes the nation and prompts calls for gun control, and the fully dysfunctional federal government prepares to pretend to have a debate about whether it should borrow even more money that it can never pay back to pay for wars that can’t be won, bloated and crooked entitlement programs, and the all-around regulatory/bureaucratic/corporate/financial nightmare that is ObamaCare–which Congress will neither … Read more

Roger Ebert has died. As you can probably guess, I didn’t see eye to eye with Ebert on politics. In fact, the first post I ever did for the old Moorewatch site was a rebuttal of many of the things Ebert said in his Sicko! review.
But as a film critic, I thought he was great. From my “Ebert is wrong post” (which has some language I’m not proud of, but won’t flush down … Read more
Oscar nominees came out earlier this week. I don’t take the Oscars terribly seriously anymore since they’ve long since beclowned themselves. Even the people I know who watch it do so for the spectacle and the celebrities. But I did get to thinking: what are the worst Oscar winners? You can pick anything: directors, actor, actress, best special effects if you’re that passionate about it.
Shakespeare in Love over Saving Private Ryan: … Read more
As you may have heard, there’s a bit of controversy about the guy behind the Gangham Style video (which I am proud to have still not watched).
n 2004, Psy allegedly rapped the following:
Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives.
Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture.
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers.
Kill them all slowly and painfully.
The lyrics and English translation — which we’re told
The Hobbit comes out in theaters next weekend. I’m a life-long fan of the book. No surprises there. Still, I’ll pass on seeing it in the theater. A night out at the movies is too much to spend for a story that I already know. And if I need to see awe-inspiring visuals of New Zealand’s natural wonders, I’ll ask CM to get a camera and email me some landscape shots or something. No, I … Read more
It’s not the United States anyone wants to secede from. People want to secede from Washington, DC and its sleaze and corruption. They’d best remember where their loyalties lie. The connected and powerful in DC are screwing each others wives on a scale not seen since Caligula forced the Senators’ wives to become whores to raise money for the state (an intriguing idea). And then Elmo ended up with a flicker of a sex scandal. … Read more
High praise indeed
As if Game Change was not revealing enough (love affair pointed one direction, antipathy and disgust the other) Hollywood, or should I say a Hollywood liberal, no difference really, is making a movie about a conservative icon, replete with femi nazism, the magic negro song, and one golden microphone:
Actor and outspoken liberal John Cusack is developing a movie about conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, Cusack’s production company said Friday.
I mentioned this in the TLC post this week, so thought I’d bring it out. I don’t watch a lot of current TV as what little I see is of low quality (and I don’t have HBO). But that probably means I’m missing more than a few good shows out there. With 187,324 channels, something’s gotta be good, right?
So what are your five favorite current TV shows. It can be a sit-com, a drama, … Read more
They are at it again, this time moving indoors. They’re hungry, they’re surly, but dang, some of them can sing:
And no ACLU in sight.
Call me crazy but for some reason I really like flash mobs. There are a number of them on youtube, the Glee one’s are probably the best and Seattle does seem to kick ass in this regard (I think that guy in the blue shirt and tie is our own … Read more
