‘Love Actually’ couples power rankings

Let me get this out of the way: I am not a romance movie person normally. The older I got, the more cynical I became and I honestly can’t sit through most of them without rolling my eyes. I have a hard time suspending my disbelief. The older I get, the more...
What Does Rooting Against FSU Fix?

What Does Rooting Against FSU Fix?

Zennie Abraham/flickr So, I have some bad news for everyone. There’s no karma in sports. When you get past the whole freakish physical gifts/insane work ethic and commitment thing, athletes are just like the rest of us. Human. Flawed. No better, no worse....
Is Christmas Music Even About Christmas?

Is Christmas Music Even About Christmas?

Mike Renlund/flickr Christmas music can be great, even though I can’t find any of the “A Very Special Christmas” albums that I like the best on Spotify, which is super annoying. There’s really no other holiday that has music associated with...

Louie, and the Joy of Being Dead Inside

Louie, and the Joy of Being Dead Inside

Louie isn’t going to win a lot of Emmy’s. And it’s not going to get a ton of attention beyond its niche audience. But if you’ve seen it, you know it’s unlike anything that’s on TV right now, or anything that you’ve ever seen on TV. Rarely an episode goes by that...
