  1. James Franco ~ Renaissance Man

    Some of us are so thick with talent, it's almost impossible to spread ourselves too thin. We are gifted with an endless supply of unbridled ability and a drive that keeps us moving fast forward. In the entertainment world, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles come to mind. Both are triple—maybe quadrupole—threats. They sing, dance, act, and are generally nice, polite, and likable people. Unfortunately, most of us aren't the caretakers of such gifts—myself included. I am not blessed with any...

  3. James Franco ~ Man Of The Hour

    It's James Franco's time to shine. It's his weekend. This Sunday, February 27th, he will be hosting the 83rd Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. It should be a great show. And, he is up for Best Actor for his outstanding performance as Aron Ralston in 127 Hours. What an accomplished man--and very busy as well. I bet he is in LA, right now, putting the final touches on his Oscar performance with Anne. While he's been prepping for that, I have been preparing as well. Because he'll be giving...

  9. Intense

    If I had to choose one word to describe Eddie Vedder that captures his spirit during the early days of Pearl Jam, circa 1991-1994, I would pick Intense. I hope that this intensity is captured in my latest painting of him.
  10. Fifty Shades of Grey Dream Cast

    I am going to play casting director and post my picks for who I think should play the characters in the soon to be made film adaptation of the book Fifty Shades of Grey. The list is ongoing and subject to change. Christian Grey: Alex Pettyfer Why? He's the hottest young actor out there right now. He has Christian's chiseled, gorgeous face, his lean, muscular bod, his generous height, and his messy hair. Plus he is fairly new on the scene and would be able to devote a few years to the...
  11. Brain Drain July

    **7/21/12 ~ Update at bottom of post... *7/10/12 ~Update near bottom of post... Just as the temperatures outside reach their highs, my cultural pursuits hit all-time lows. Can it get any worse than consuming all three books in the Fifty Shades of Grey series in less than a week’s time? And if that weren’t enough, to continue the obsession by blogging about the books—twice—as if I hadn’t already spent enough time reading the texts? There was the artwork—the painting of Christian Grey....
  12. Skeptics' Witticisms

    Here are some amusing quotes/statements that I shoplifted from The Skeptic's Dictionary online: You're codependent for sure if, when you die, someone else's life flashes in front of your eyes. Seventy-two percent of people think that we use only 10 percent of our brain capacity, which proves that 72% of people are wasting the 10% of their brain that's working. My Favorite Skeptic Trumps: Woo Table Larger Image "...I am not so much an atheist as an anti-theist. I am, in other...
  13. The Ten Greatest Films of All Time ~ A List in Progress

    I really went on a tirade in my previous blog entry--slamming Sight & Sound's Fifty Greatest Films of all time 2012 list. But should I really be stirring up a storm if I have not actually seen all the movies in their list? Perhaps I shouldn't. Of course, no one has seen all movies made. And so anyone who has submitted a top ten list is guilty of doing this. For how can one know if a film is worthy or not of being in a top ten list, if one hasn't actually seen the film? Therefore, I am...
  14. Olympics Closing Ceremony ~ A Screenshot Memoir of WTF? Moments

    After my seriously brain-draining last blog post about consciousness and other metaphysical stuff, I aim to keep this post light and ridiculously irrelevant. So, the London 2012 Olympics have come to a close. I can't provide much commentary on the games themselves as I only tuned into the men's and women's artistic gymnastics competitions. But as you may recall, I live-blogged the opening ceremony. For the closing ceremony, I have decided to post screen captures of my favorite visuals as...
  15. Pin the Name on the Yogi

    *Update September 29, 2012 ~ The Overheated, Oversexed Cult of Bikram Choudhury It's been a long time since I've poked fun at a group or subculture. Oh wait, I did just write a snarky piece about pretentious philosophers. Anyhow, it feels like a long time. And it has been a while since I crucified spiritualists and castigated climbers. Sometimes, it just feels good to say what you really think. There's nothing wrong with vocalizing an opinion as long as you focus on an acquired status...
