A Lesson in Child’s Play: Kid Snippets

I would like to thank YouTube’s Bored Shorts TV for confirming my belief that children are tiny life coaches. The YouTube channel’s ‘Kid Snippets’ have brought me an incredible amount of entertainment in recent days. They’ve also reminded me of following: It’s important to be encouraging and make your feedback constructive. There are certain things you should always look for when voting for a presidential candidate. Fire can be good and bad. Also, it’s important to make the best out of every situation, no matter how awful. Speeding is wrong,Read More

Little People, Big Divorce

Reality stars, Matt and Amy Roloff, of “Little People, Big World”, have announced that they will be separating after four children and 26 years of marriage. This news comes as a heartbreak and shock to all who watched their TLC reality show, which focused on the dynamics of a family dealing with dwarfism. The Roloffs released a statement that said “Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation.” The latest season of “Little People, Big World” premiered on OctoberRead More
Last spring I got out of the Marine Corps and decided to go on a road trip to enjoy all the freedom I had been busy fighting over for the last five years.  I’m not sure what a country with no Air Force or Navy or any hostile Army at all has to do with American freedom, but that’s what I was told.  I was originally going to go solo, but I ended up taking my little sister along.  I initially said “hell no” when she asked, but I thoughtRead More
Working in production takes a toll on a human being.  Long hours can mean debilitating health as well as a lack of social life (and forget dating altogether). I’ve come to know these pratfalls all too well during my stint as a freelance production sound mixer, yet the most ironic things I’ve missed out the most on are current film and television releases.  You’d think that being as entrenched as I am in the creation of new content (be sure to check out the UnderArmour commercial I recorded sound forRead More

Ass and Abject Horror: The Naked Body on TV

Bare with me and we’ll get to the butts soon, I promise. First, let’s get somewhat educational, but not too much. The content provided by television has long adhered to rules, regulations, and procedures, both political and corporate in their design. These rules and regulations I speak of served the general purpose of censoring out what was considered culturally “obscene” or “indecent” to the American Public, today we know it all as the FCC. In laymen’s term’s (and because I just want to), these regulations worked to ensure that theRead More

True Detective: The Best New Show on TV

You’ve finished Breaking Bad, binged on House of Cards, and are looking for a new show to tide you over until Game of Thrones comes back. Well, look no further, because HBO’s True Detective is one of the most riveting shows to grace the airwaves.  Set primarily in 1995, the show is a gritty take on the pulp neo-noir genre twisted with elements of supernatural horror, and trades the urban decay of New York or Los Angeles, for an eerie look at the backwater depravity of 1995 Louisiana. The showRead More

Growing Up Leno: A Personal Experience

This week, the Tonight Show returned to its New York roots as Jimmy Fallon took over. To some, it signals a welcome ending to an era. But to others, such as yours truly, it brings back fond memories of the past two decades.   Satellite TV Jay Leno is an only child, and so am I. Throughout elementary school, middle school, and high school, my parents and I would finish every evening by watching Jay Leno on the east coast NBC station (meaning on the west coast it was 8:30).Read More
The world we live in is a hectic and fast paced one. If you slow down you get left behind.  It can be easy to lose focus in this chaotic landscape of technology and politics. But with today being Valentine’s Day, it’s  important to think back to a simpler time; the laughter, tears, and countless hours you shared with your first love: Netflix. Do you remember the first time you met Netflix? Of course you do; it was young and ambitious, and was what all of your friends had beenRead More

Like British Humor? Try Peep Show

If you frequently watch comedies on your Netflix (or your friend of a friend’s Netflix account…be honest) then you’ve probably stumbled upon it or at least had it listed in your suggestions. In my opinion, it’s one of the most underrated shows of the past decade. A first-person, point of view, buddy comedy program starring British comedy greats Robert Webb and David Mitchell. The name is Peep Show. DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for the ensuing all-day marathon that causes you to get fired from your job. Thus, I willRead More
Breakdown of my time spent while the Super Bowl is on during any given year: 50% eating snacks, 40% seriously asking everyone who’ll listen why they don’t just have Beyonce perform for halftime every year, 9% watching the commercials, and 1% pretending to actually watch the game. For those of you who spend your time otherwise (I don’t understand why you would), here’s a recap of the best commercials worth looking up on YouTube.   Arnold Schwarzenegger Plays Ping-Pong for Bud Light Seriously, watch this. Bud Light took a randomRead More

The 10 Best Netflix Shows to Marathon

Let’s be real – Netflix is awesome. It makes it so easy to spend hours on your couch or in front of your television, watching episode after episode of hundreds of shows. Here are some of my top picks to waste your afternoon and put off that important assignment you need to do: #1 – The Office (U.S.) Netflix has 9 full seasons of The Office, the hit comedy series featuring the Dunder Mifflin paper company and the different relationships and ridiculous moments that can occur in an office setting. ThisRead More

Sons of Anarchy Season 6 Finale Recap

Some people never seem to get the message, so before we get started here, let’s get this out of the way: IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN SEASON SIX OF SONS OF ANARCHY, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER.   In other words: SPOILER ALERT!   Ah. Alright. We have that taken care of, so now we can dive headfirst into the dirty, bloody mess that FX’s poster child, Sons of Anarchy has become. Actually, I guess it’s been that way since its inception, and that’s why we love it: SAMCRO has neverRead More
