Desperately Seeking Attention

Ok.  When I was a MUCH younger person, I did a lot of stupid things for attention.  For whatever reason, any attention (whether it was good or bad attention) was better than no attention.  But that was then, and this is now. Madonna hasn’t figured this out.  For her, any attention is still important. I’ve […]

CHILDREN BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK-UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCES

I’ve written before about the results and consequences facing children who are born out of wedlock.  The whole “I don’t need to be married in order to have a child” lifestyle, encouraged by the example of numerous celebrities who the media glorify, will continue to have an enormous negative impact on society.  Legitimate studies already […]

CELEBRITIES WANT THEIR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO

Celebrities crack me up.  Not all celebrities.  There are some actors and actresses that stay out of the limelight and relish their privacy.  I’m talking about those who are attention-seeking junkies who spend every waking moment trying to be relevant.  Then, when something goes wrong in their lives, they want the cameras off, the lights […]

LINGERING THOUGHTS OF THE PAST WEEK

A few stories in the news piqued my interest this week. One was the story of the eventual death of a 2-year old toddler who, a week earlier, was run over by not one, but two vans in China and left in the street to die while 18 bystanders rode or walked by before someone […]

I See Dumb People

I don’t know much about Katy Perry but I do like some of her music.  Although I’m not quoting it as a viable source, wikipedia says she grew up in Santa Barbara with parents who were Christian pastors.  That being said, how does someone with what appears to be a decent upbringing get so out […]

Shut Up and Act

I find it very difficult to separate a man from his opinions.  If I don’t like an actor’s political views, I won’t spend one dime on a movie if I know it will end up in his or her pocket.  For example, I never watched Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior because of Janeane Garofalo and her […]

I See Dumb People

From appearances on Letterman and American Idol to 10,000,000 followers on Twitter, Lady Gaga is just about everywhere.  She’s cutting deals with Google, Polaroid, Sprint and Estee Lauder.   She even had our State Department help arrange for her to do some gig in Italy.  Right now, she’s hot and she’s cashing in on her celebrity.  […]

AT THE PRECIPICE

When I heard Robert Duvall speaking with Mike Huckabee last year about his film, “Get Low,” I knew it was my kind of movie.  It’s the story of a man who wants to throw his own “funeral party” while he’s alive and have people come and tell stories about him and is loosely based on […]

DEFENDING OUR "SHORE"

You’re not going to believe this, and I really don’t believe it myself, but I’m going to defend those yo-yos on “Jersey Shore” – well sort of.  Just this week, I read that the “stars” of Jersey Shore are heading to the shores of Italy to start filming their next season.  Well, the Italians are […]

THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT GETTING NAKED

  So, a few weeks ago, my nephew sent me a link to the following webpage, “W Magazine Replies to Kim Kardashian’s Tears Over ‘Porn’-y Nude Pics.” Let me start out by saying that I find anything Kardashian disgusting and try to avoid reading about Kim or the rest of the litter. I still remember […]
