Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 8

And my miraculous run has come to an end.

My picks came crashing down to earth in Week 7; I barely managed to break .500 at 8-6. Stella gained back one game by going 9-5. Frankly, I was lucky that was all she got back – the two games that I won were each decided by a single point (Buffalo over Minnesota 17-16; Detroit over New Orleans 24-23). I was two points away from having my lead cut in half.

And then there were two

Thoughts on the 2014 World Series

One of the things I love about baseball as a sport is the overwhelming sense of history that accompanies the game. More than any other professional sport, baseball is bound to the ghosts of those who came before. We love comparing the greats of yesteryear to the rising stars of tomorrow – even through the inevitable alterations that come through time’s unending march.

Celebrity Slam - 10/22/14

Masked moron

Usually, the people we discuss in this space aren’t guilty of much more than poor judgment. Whether in word or in deed, they simply don’t think about the implications of the choices that they are making.

‘The Book of Life’ a lively treat

Animated film offers a glimpse of The Day of the Dead

There’s nothing wrong with cinema that is inspired by other source material. Reinventing a tale within the boundaries of a new medium is one of the foundations of storytelling. That said, it is undeniably intriguing when an original idea makes its first appearance on the screen.

The sound and the ‘Fury’

Film tells tale of tank warfare in WWII

Most movies can be easily summed up in a single sentence. That’s how these things tend to be pitched. However, there are relatively few that can be summed up in a single sentence that will make me actively want to see said movie.

The ugly beauty of ‘Beautiful You’

Palahniuk’s latest satirizes sex, consumer culture

There are few contemporary writers with the knack for subversion and satire that Chuck Palahniuk brings to the table. There’s a transgressive aggression to his work that carries an undeniable impact.

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.
