1. LIFE IS NOT FAIR – The idea I find most ironic about the statement “life is not fair,” is that when it is presented it is often looked upon as a bad thing, why? The simple reality is that the sooner you realize this in life the better. Leaning on the ideal that life is not fair more often than not produces excuses, and just for the record, excuses are: Continue reading →
January Football is what decides championships in the NFL, let’s take a look at all four games in the wild card round.
ARIZONA AT CAROLINA
It’s crazy how much things have changed during the home stretch for both the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona was the top team in the NFL through week 11, since then, they’ve lost 4 of their last 6 and have endure the loss of starting quarterback Carson Palmer which pushed them back all the way to the 5th seed. Carolina is in this discussion because they won the NFL South with only a 7-8-1, and even though the Panthers have won 4 straight, not a single one of their opponents during this streak was a playoff team. Arizona’s problem, is that there is too much uncertainty going into this week, and with Palmer out and the game being played in Charlotte, I think the Panthers will squeak out a win.

Sony Pictures has decided to shelf the theatrical release of their new film “The Interview” as news of cyber attacks made by the country of North Korea had included threats of further violence at the theater themselves.
Believe or not, Christmas is probably the best Holiday that you can use to find out exactly what people think about you, not that you necessarily give a shit, but sometimes it pays to know how other feel. Christmas gifts can either say a lot about you or they can say a lot about the gift-giver, in some cases, it may say a lot about both.

So what are people in your life secretly saying to you when they buy you Christmas presents? Let’s find out. Continue reading →
Exodus: Gods and Kings is a biblically inspired film directed by Ridley Scott and is an interpretation of the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt as led by Moses and related in the Book of Exodus. The cast includes Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Siguorney Weaver and Ben Kingsley.
For me, what really stood out about this movie, is that it makes the tale of Moses much more practical and believable. “The 10 Commandments” came off as so far-fetched that you could have easily compared that film to “The Wizard of Oz.” Continue reading →
Later this evening, or at least within the next two games, Kobe Bryant will pass Michael Jordan for 3rd all-time in points scored in the NBA. What does this mean for Kobe, and what does this mean for his legacy?
Kobe Bryant said in his NBA draft interview that his goal was to be the greatest player ever. Whether you love him or hate him (and believe me, that line with NBA fans is about 50/50), he is without question one of the 10 greatest players ever. But is he better than Jordan? That’s a hard question, and I’ll address why he is, and why he is not (indecisive I am). Continue reading →
