#360

I started a lengthy post about my trip to the hospital last Tuesday for a kidney pre-donor evaluation, but I never got the chance to finish it. I'll get to that sooner or later... probably later rather than sooner. A few exciting things happened today. And by a few, I mean a few - as in two. Yep. Just two. Haha. 1. I was inspired to start working on a new layout for Burned-Bridges.net. I think I deserve a standing ovation for my efforts. I could very well wake up tomorrow, decide that I don't ...

Review: The Strangers

As always, I will try my best to speak in general terms about the movie, but there might be some accidental spoilers, so please read with caution.

Review: Walk Hard

As always, I will try my best to speak in general terms about the movie, but there might be some accidental spoilers, so please read with caution. The up-and-down-and-up-again story of musician Dewey Cox, whose songs would change a nation. On his rock 'n roll spiral, Cox sleeps with 411 women, marries three times, has 22 kids and 14 step-kids, stars in his own 70s TV show, collects friends ranging from Elvis to the Beatles to a chimp, and gets addicted to - and then kicks - every drug known ...
