This is the Holmes Brothers version of Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me." It's amazing

Doctor Who musings

You'd think the Doctor would take some time to make a list for his companions titled "What to Watch Out For." Item one would be Daleks, obviously, since no matter how many times he wipes the salt shakers out of existence they're always there. Number two would be Cybermen, because they're really easy to spot with the whole "You will be assimilated...

So, one of my classes this semester deals with Congress and the legislative process. And to make that concept more exciting and entertaining to us young people, my professor has us do "Congressional simulations." We're on our first one right now, so no word yet if this is a good idea or a complete fucking disaster. Anyway, part of this whole experience is that...

So, I'm a pretty big Guns N' Roses fan and have felt for a long time that Use Your Illusion gets unfairly dismissed when people talk about the band. Is it a perfect record? No, not by any means. It has the same faults that most double albums have, that is, it's actually an album and a half of good songs and than...

So after many years of hearing how vastly superior the director's cut of Daredevil was to the theatrical release, I finally saw it for myself. My verdict is that it is better overall, but is still a flawed film, just for different reasons.

The most obvious improvement is the love story between Matt Murdock and Elektra. Instead of bulldozing the main plot like in...

So I'm a bit late on this, but let's talk about the Justice League movie. Here is a handy roundup courtesy of CinemaBlend of all the rumors and what not that Warner Brothers has released so far. I think this a terrible idea actually, and I don't think it should happen, for lots of reason.

First is that DC doesn't have...

Something I've been thinking about lately is how badly does Mitt Romney want to be president? And it is it really worth it to win? After the Supreme Court upheld the ACA, Romney had the privilege of denouncing the very same thing he did in Massachusetts, which went unnoticed by absolutely no one. And then, he got hammered by the Wall Street Journal editorial...

Just wanted to write my response to the election column on the front page today. (Holy shit is this a lot longer than I'd thought it would be)

The diagnosis that America is falling further behind due to a lack of social mobility, the destruction of the middle class, and under-regulated capitalism is all true. The charge that Republicans have no interest in solving...

In my younger and more naive years, I thought I had a pretty good grasp of politics and the politics of economics. Reality, it seems, is something of a bitch. As the financial crisis of 2008 became the the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, I saw unemployment shooting to at least 10% by the beginning of 2009. And sure enough , that's what...

So it finally looks like the time that Greece will exit the EuroZone. There has been a lot written about this scenario over the last week but I figured I might as well out my two cents in.

I really think that, for the most part, what most people are missing when they talk about the Greek exit is that the austerity movement is, and...

Dr. John came out with a new album in February, and it is simply amazing

Also, I remembered an album Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks had before they joined Fleetwood Mac, appropriately titled "Buckingham Nicks." To be more accurate, the album is what got them into Fleetwood Mac. Anyway, it too is surprisingly good and I...
