Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 3

And it’s all tied up.

Frankly, a tie is far better than I expected even at this early stage of the game. I managed to get back the game I lost in Week 1, thanks to the three-point win by the Eagles in the Monday night game. That win left me with a record of 11-5 for the week, a single game better than Stella’s 10-6.

Celebrity Slam - 09/17/14

Kanye Down Under

It’s no secret that we’ve been known to go after the same targets over and over again here at Celebrity Slam. That doesn’t mean that we have any sort of agenda – it just means that there are some famous folks out there who continually say and do things that make our job extremely easy to do. And since we’re big fans of the path of least resistance, that means we’re more than happy to lean on our reliable stable of the unstable.

Be a Man

Ray Harrington documents his quest to find out what that means

Comedian Ray Harrington has made a documentary and wants you to help bring it to reality. The movie itself has been shot in its entirety, and Harrington has a Kickstarter to defray the post-production costs – a Kickstarter that met its goal in two days. But Harrington said that he had aimed low, wanting to cover the bare bones of what needed to be done (color correction and sound mixing), and the more he can raise, the better things will be in the end. There are a couple weeks to go, and Harrington is trying to meet his stretch goal of $8,000. He is already more than halfway there. And you still have time to help.

Art and aging – ‘Stone Mattress’

Atwood collection features nine compelling stories

Short fiction sometimes gets short shrift in the literary realm. For whatever reason, collections of short stories never seem to generate quite the attention that novels do. But there’s nothing quite like a well-executed assemblage of shorter pieces; instead of a single overarching narrative - with one beginning, middle and end – the reader gets a multitude of starts and finishes.

‘No Good Deed’ deserves to be punished

Home invasion thriller offers misogyny and trite banalities

One of the less-discussed benefits of seeing a lot of movies is the fact that you also see a lot of trailers. While I once considered them an annoyance of sorts, they have become one of my favorite parts of the experience. It’s interesting to get an idea about what my far filmic future holds as I anticipate the present.

‘Dolphin Tale 2’ swimming in sentiment


Feel-good sequel offers inoffensive, family-friendly charm

When making a sequel, filmmakers need to understand that they aren’t expected to reinvent the wheel. If the previous offering’s formula proved to be a winning one, why change it? An audience that is going to see a movie with a number at the end of the title isn’t expecting some sort of radical reinvention. They liked what they saw before and they’d like to see more of it, thanks.

Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 2

So that didn’t take long.

In what I’m sure seems like a shocking turn of events, Week 1 of the NFL season saw my dog’s first victory over me. While I had a decent start – I managed a 10-6 record despite a first week that saw some unexpected twists and turns – young Stella got a good start down the road of ensuring that the world knows that last year’s triumph was no fluke, going 11-5 and beating me out by a single game.
