Hubba Hubba — The Eyes Have It

  You would not think a new pair of glasses would be that big a deal. But you would be wrong. I allowed the Chinese Fashionista Missus to choose my new specs, and she boldy went where I had never gone before. Big, round and tortoise.

Decking the Halls…

  The Baby Jesus won’t make his appearance for another four days in New Zealand. Meanwhile, we have done all the decking of halls that can be done. Unless we get way more halls.

Deranged Old Man Eyebrows

  “You’ve been cutting your eyebrows again, haven’t you?” Says the Missus. In that tone that your Mother used to use. When you had been very bad. So I man up and give my answer. “No, I have not.” And I quickly walk away because, I may look stupid, but I’m really not. See, you […]

The Great Movie Controversy — Tombstone is NOT the Greatest Western Ever. That Would Be…

“I’m your Huckleberry,” says Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) before he kills crazy, evil Johnny Ringo. “Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smokewagon and see what happens,” spits out slate-eyed Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell). There is no question that Tombstone is packed with great acting and memorable dialogue. But… Spoiler alert and fightin’ words …That notwithstanding, […]
