Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 7

I figured that there was no way I could possibly top the 13-2 record I put up in Week 5. So of course, I promptly do ever-so-slightly better in Week 6 by putting up a 13-1-1 thanks to the Carolina/Cincinnati tie.

I honestly don’t know what’s happening. I’ve apparently been entering some sort of pundit fugue state when making my picks over the past two weeks. 26-3-1? How is that even possible? The only game I missed last week was Dallas/Seattle; hard to fault picking the Seahawks.

Celebrity Slam - 10/15/14

Martian Chronicles

It’s an unfortunate reality that since The Maine Edge is a weekly publication, Celebrity Slam also appears just once per week. Thus, we often find ourselves at a loss when a famous person goes off the rails midweek. Most of the time, we simply accept our fate and move forward.

Cary Elwes book tells the tale of making of “The Princess Bride”

It’s difficult to say just what makes a film transcend mere popularity to become a true pop cultural touchstone. When a variety of factors are combined in just the right amounts at exactly the right time, a movie can become an integral part of an entire generation or even generations.

A not-so-bad ‘Very Bad Day’

‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

The realm of children’s movies has been more or less dominated by animation in recent years. It seems that the current cinematic climate doesn’t have much room for live-action films aimed specifically at the younger set. There are exceptions, of course, but it seems that we see far fewer of those sorts of films these days.

Judge not, lest ye be judged

‘The Judge’ offers both humor and pathos

Our tendency as moviegoers is to pigeonhole films. We like to be able to easily categorize them – comedy, drama, action, romance … you know the drill. But some films consciously strive to defy easy classification. Sometimes, these movies are more than the sum of their parts. Other times, they are little more than muddled messes.

Mahaney Diamond’s Field of Dreams

My weekend at UMaine Baseball Fantasy Camp

ORONO – I’ve loved the game of baseball since I was a kid. From my time on the bench in Farm League to the present day, I’ve been a passionate fan of the game. It’s still the best game there is in my opinion, no matter what football might have to say about it.

Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 6

That was a big week.

My lead is up to five – the highest that it has been in the entire storied history of Kibbles and Picks. I also put up what has to be my most impressive individual effort, missing on just two games all week. Stella still managed a decent week at 9-6, keeping me within shouting distance.

Horror novel offers subtle scares

It’s easy to complain when genre fiction recycles tropes, but the truth is that the reason we see certain concepts come up again and again is simple.
