Commercials that are like nails on the chalkboard

I’ve being holding a grudge at particular company because of their commercials. I was just going to put my TV on mute or fast forward through it(like I always do). With the bad commercials that debuted in the Super Bowl, I felt it was time to discuss that commercial and another one that debuted on […]

American values…

It’s been awhile since I wrote on this blog but something has me stirred up. Meet the Press host Chuck Todd (best superhero name for a real person..ever) asked Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson about faith and “Should a president’s faith matter?”. Carson’s answer just floored me.   “If it’s inconsistent with the values and […]

College Playoff Committee needs to be disbanded

College Playoff Committee needs to be disbanded          I had my reservations about the College Playoff Committee and how they would handle things each week.

Processing Things

Processing Things I don’t know how. This is the answer to the question that I asked myself in the last month. I lost a friend of mine less than a month ago. Her passing was a shock to me and all that knew her. I went to her funeral and met some very nice friends […]

Manners

Manners I was sitting in the movie theater watching The Lone Ranger(I’ll share my thoughts on that another time). The movie was almost over and the next thing I know, I started to see smoke. For a moment, I thought it was special effect done to make you get deeper in the movie experience. That […]

My childhood friends

My childhood friends As a child, I was a “keep to myself” type of kid. I had few friends but the biggest one was the television. It gave me an outlet to be who I am and discover what I like. I love the fact that you had different shows from different eras in syndication. […]

What I saw this week

What I saw this week I’ve noticed a few things this week that I had to comment on. I witnessed a person crank up their vehicle, pull out of the parking spot and then load up their groceries. What type of sense does this make? None, in my opinion. You’re wasting gas and blocking other […]

Things I don’t understand

Things I don’t understand A brief view of two things I don’t understand. The first thing would be people that wear their pant so baggy, it’s down to their knees or lower. I am remembering the days where your family member or somebody in the neighbor would tell you to pull your pants up. Most […]

3D: Is it necessary?

3D: Is it necessary? I remember, when I was growing up, that 3D was a novelty to the film that you were watching. It was more of a gimmick than anything. Granted, the movies that were offered in 3D wasn’t the greatest motion pictures of all time either. Jaws 3D, Friday the 13th 3D (I […]
