  • True Blood Season 2 -- Sophomore Slump?
    on Aug 6, 2009 in True Blood Breaking Bad
    It is with sinking heart and slowly shredded expectations that I have watched the second season of True Blood. I became hooked on HBO’s colorful supernatural soap opera during its maiden voyage, but this year’s ship has remained steadfastly dock...
  • Get Your True Blood on DirecTV
    on Jul 9, 2009
    True Blood has started its second season, and if you don’t have HBO, you’re really missing out. If you don’t have HBO in HD, you’re really, really missing out. There’s nothing like bloody vampire carnage in crystal clear high definition.
  • Texas Rangers Baseball -- Oxymoron no Longer?
    on May 18, 2009 in Texas Rangers
    It is with great trepidation that I post on the 2009 Texas Rangers. I say this because it seems like every time I write, talk or even think about the Rangers as an improved team, the bottom generally falls out within days. So with utmost respect to...
  • Phoenix: Pop Bliss RisingAs a proud 42-year-old curmudgeon, I don’t seek out a lot of new music. However, after I saw the French band Phoenix on Saturday Night Live recently, I was compelled to pick up their 2006 release It’s Never Been Like That, which proved to be an...
  • Flipping Off the TIVO Nation
    on Apr 8, 2009 in American Idol Adam Lambert
    Hold on a second while I climb on my gay soapbox…American Idol screwed the TIVO nation last night. If you recorded the show -- like millions of people did -- you didn’t see the performance of Adam Lambert, the season’s best contestant and the...
  • The Ultimate Supplement
    on Mar 28, 2009
    About six months ago I began the most challenging workout program of my life – Tony Horton’s P90X from Beach Body. I can now say that at age 42, I am in the best shape of my life. True, that’s not saying a whole lot considering the shape I wa...
  • Idol Musings
    on Mar 20, 2009 in American Idol
    Don’t ask me how, but I get roped into American Idol every year. I watch attentively, root for my favorites, and then promptly forget about the winner (and losers) as soon as the competition ends. I would be more likely to buy a Jonas Brothers al...
  • Comfort Clothing
    on Mar 17, 2009
    When you want to indulge yourself with something special, you seldom think “feet.” But I think that’s wrong. There’s nothing like a pair of comfy slippers to adjust your attitude and brighten your day, and when it comes to comfy slippers, t...
  • Olson and Louris on TourMy good friend Delmore Walker just informed me that Mark Olson and Gary Louris, co-founders of the legendary alt-country bank The Jayhawks, are currently on an acoustic tour to back their new album Ready for the Flood. Here’s a list of all the tou...
  • Summer in the Poconos
    on Mar 9, 2009
    I can’t believe that Spring Break is almost here. The kids will be home all next week, and this serves as a reminder that summer is just around the corner. Summer break is great for kids, but can be difficult for working parents. If you are in P...
