It’s time for my annual(ish) list of movies I want to catch this year. Strap in and let the trailers wash over you like pureÂ adrenalin. (Not that I know what an adrenalin shower is like, ’cause I kind of think that would be a bit… icky. Though that’s not really the feeling I think you should take away from watching these trailers… so… look, just get excited, okay? Sheesh, you people are so literal.)

Pixar has an amazing track record with its movies. The quality of animation is superb and their attention to story is a cut (or two) above most studios. Their worst “failures” are still better than most movies out there. I’d put Cars (both 1 and 2) at the bottom of their list, and I still had a good time watching them. At their best, they blow me away. Toy Story, The Incredibles, Monsters Inc. – . . . → Read More: Review: Brave
At a recent Rangers game, a couple was caught on film denying a game ball to a crying toddler, and they have been put through the social media ringer over it since then. Here’s the video…
I think the announcer was being a little harsh, myself. It didn’t look like they were “rubbing it in” – though they certainly were oblivious. In fact, they’ve copped to not noticing the crying kid in their excitement. . . . → Read More: “Stolen” baseballs
I wrote before about the problem I have with showing my daughters the Star Wars series (well, some of them). It’s difficult to decide what order to show them which versions of the films, and how quickly.
I think I’ve got it figured out.
We’ve now seen A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back a couple of times. There is some question in their minds as to whether Vader was being truthful when he said . . . → Read More: Star Wars Conundrum: Sorted
I’m pretty sure my wife will have no problem confirming this: I’m addicted to The Sing-Off. Â Last year’s show blew my mind with the talent involved. This year matches that achievement.
It didn’t start out as good as last year, though. Of course there were fewer episodes last year, and therefore fewer groups involved; they didn’t have as much room for mediocrity (though truth be told, even mediocrity here is pretty darn good).

Every once in a while people post interesting stuff on Facebook, instead of just the inane time-sucking games and narcissism that usually goes on there.
Speaking of narcissism, here’s a picture of me that Lee Sargent drew for my birthday yesterday.

It’s very simple, really. They brought me this:
I make jokes about awesomeness all the time. That is truly awesome.
The dad in that video is a friend of mine from college. Unfortunately I’ve barely spoken to him since then, but we hooked up on Facebook a while ago, and I’ve been watching Adam’s progression through his Facebook posts. Adam has had that for 3 years – virtually his entire life. That video is . . . → Read More: Why Facebook and YouTube are cool
I can’t remember precisely the last time somebody took a needle and jammed it into my gums multiple times. I can’t remember the date, but I vividly remember the experience. And the crying. And the fear… no: terror. It’s been a long, long time. And I was okay with that being an experience in my past. I was over it.
Well, I thought I was over it.

We’re heading back toward another season of Doctor Who! Matt Smith will reprise his role as The Doctor starting on Easter weekend (April 23rd). Also returning are companions (and newlyweds) Rory and Amy. And of course, River Song will show up at some point as well.
I talked about how excited I was about this season in my review of last season, so instead of repeating myself I’ll just say… “can’t wait!”

I despise the entire idea of Toddlers & Tiaras. This, however, I can totally get behind…
How many plugs for Tom Hanks’ roles can you spot?
Here are the ones I caught (most were pretty obvious):
Bosom BuddiesÂ (Bosom Baby t-shirt) Turner & Hooch (“Don’t be a Hooch”) Big Forrest Gump Saving Private Ryan (“Earn it!”) Apollo 13
I love the spray bottle.
Tom Hanks continues to impress.
