Two years ago we caught my then 2-year old daughter slathering herself (and the rug, and the covers, and the bed) with Desitin cream. My resulting distress was recorded in what has become my most popular blog post by far. Apparently, this is not an uncommon problem with 2-year-olds. I’m glad the post has helped others in their quest for cleaning and to help them realize they’re not alone.
Now, it’s 2 years later. My . . . → Read More: What is it with this kid?
Thanksgiving is a US holiday where we purposely focus on being thankful for our lives, and the people and things in them. Families get together and enjoy each others company, and many have some different great traditions about going around the table and each saying something they are thankful for, or presenting some sort of story illustrating thankfulness, or just being thankful to be with each other. But a constant at every table is food . . . → Read More: Thanksgiving – Epic version
The Last Airbender‘s current ranking on RottenTomatoes.com? 6%
Six percent. In other words, atrocious. Worse than 94% of all movies rated. Horrible. A steaming pile of excrement. Your mother would slap you and make extra appointments with her psychiatrist if she heard you watched this movie.
I watched it anyway.
You know what? It’s not that bad.
Now, don’t get me wrong… it’s not good, either. That script needed some serious work. This is . . . → Read More: Review: The Last Airbender
Craig Ferguson’s Late Late show did a Doctor Who themed episode on Tuesday night.
Craig cracks me up. And he’s a true Doctor Who fan, too.
Here’s the “Cold Opening” and monologue:
The Doctor Who themed Twitter and Email segment:
And finally the interview with the newest Doctor, Matt Smith.
And the closing segment:
Craig is weird enough that there may not ever have been a dance number… but I kind . . . → Read More: Ferguson’s Doctor Who show
I’ve been excited and worried about this one for a long time. Green Lantern is an exceptionally hard character to pull off in live-action. More than most other super-heroes, the effects are front and center, and extremely important to get right, but extremely susceptible to looking cartoony. They have to look realistic, and yet they have no connection to reality. The ring effects in particular should have substance, and yet not.

Wow! I’m geeking out! This guy managed to mix computer laptop maintenance and an Ultraman-like tribute into a catchy, funny song! He even got a Queen tribute in!
Hats off to that dude. Way to go.
I wonder if he ever got that laptop back together.
The time is shortly upon us.
The wait is nearly over.
Let the glorious holiday IMAX season BEGIN!!!
Wait… let me get my oxygen…
Okay. I feel better now. Got a little giddy there for a second.
There are three movies left in 2010 that I really want to see in theaters. Back in March I reviewed the trailers for a bunch of 2010 films and picked a list of about 12 movies I was . . . → Read More: Holiday trailers – Tron: Legacy, Narnia 3, and HP:TDH
(I’m pretty much stealing this post from Walt. I didn’t ask him. Is that a breach of civility?)
So the Today show is doing a series called “Is Civility Dead?” Below is the initial segment. Sorry to those outside the US – it’s from Hulu (I couldn’t find it on YouTube). And for those in the US… only available until Sunday.
I totally agree with everything in that segment.
