Satisfying Your Inner Math Geek

I’ve been on a kick lately with NUMB3RS. Yes, the TV show. I’m not much of a TV fanatic. Actually, I think it kills your brain, but I adore crime dramas. I watch them. I read them. I dream them. I am so happy that there are about a bazillion crime drama shows on the boob-tube these days. I just don’t bother to wait until a specific time every week to watch said programs. And I hate commercials. We watch everything on DVD at our house. It works well with my obsessive-compulsi…

What We Learn Watching Home Movies (of Ourselves)

For the final movie of my collegiate career, I am required to “insert” myself into the cinematic equation. My professor demands that at least ten percent of the film be autobiographical. And so, taking my cue from an old Nick at Nite sitcom, I responded, “Your wish is my command, Master.” (Sadly my professor is Italian and my I Dream of Jeannie reference was lost on him.) Upon my return to New York, I collected family home videos documenting my life between ages 0-4, and Moses was I a hand full. Development…

Michael Scott vs. Roger Goodell

Usually the King of Awkward. Tonight is Michael Scott’s last episode of The Office. Even though the show has lost some punch in recent years I feel obligated to watch Steve Carell’s last dance. Nothing can stay fresh forever and when I watch The Office now, that is my feeling. There isn’t necessarily anything wrong with it, but it doesn’t have the same impact that it once did. The gags get old or too far-fetched, plot lines are eventually resolved, and the show basically outgrows itself. It was…

Where Your Favorite Comedies Fall in the Top 25

Here are my current favorite, best and top twenty-five comedies of all time. Everyone is different, so I understand you may not have your top 25 comedies in the exact order that I do. If one of these comedies is not in your top 100 comedies of all time, you either have not seen it, or you are stupid. Not seen it or stupid are acceptable. I will add, maybe, you just are not funny. Not funny = shitty sense of humor. Like hunting with Dick Cheney, if you get shot,…

It Requires An Attention Span: Silent Horror Films

Attention spans are wonderful things. Too bad they are noticeably lacking in society today. I would appreciate even a small attention span, going to dinner with someone or walking along having a conversation without them looking at their cell phone, sitting down to watch a movie in its entirety without needing to log on to the Internet, and so on. So I’m reaching here when I suggest watching silent films. An activity that not only requires one to read (how dare I suggest such a thing), but paying attention…

Vanity Fair Really Is Made of One-Third Kennedys-Related Content

Exactly how intense is Vanity Fair‘s love affair with the Kennedys? The math may or may not shock you: “Roughly one-third of the issues ofVanity Fair since 2003 have contained at least one article about a Kennedy, written by a Kennedy, or mentioning a Kennedy at least seven times…. The October 2009 Jackie cover sold 437,000 issues, beating out both Gisele (281,000) and President Obama (370,000) in 2010. Angelina Jolie seems to be the only star with enough power to consistently outsell the family—her most recent cover sold 512,507.”

It’s Mid-week, Which Means You Could Use a Little Pepe Le Moko

The story of a criminal on the run and his North African safe haven, Pepe Le Moko marked the beginning of a wave of French cinema that focussed on characters ground in tragedy, much in the same way that the Film Noir movement would inspire the American cinema in the years following the second World War. Julian Duvivier and his star, Jean Gabin, were elevated to the highest reaches of cultural importance following the success of the film, with the tone and subject matter going on to inspire a generation of…
