Kibbles and Picks 2015 – Week 6

And just like that, I’m back on top.

Although we differed on just four games last week, I managed to surge back into the lead thanks to choosing wisely on three of those games. The Eagles, the Bills and the Broncos came up big for me (though the Titans and the Raiders very nearly beat the latter two), while the Jaguars came up just short against the Buccaneers.

Celebrity Slam - (10/14/15)

One busy weekend

Anyone who visits this space with regularity knows that some weeks, it’s a little tougher to find top-shelf celebrity foibles to mock and deride. That’s when the deep cuts tend to happen. Sometimes, what’s essentially a molehill needs to be built into a mountain. It’s all in good fun.

So … that’s a pretty solid start to the season.

The New England Patriots have hit the ground running in this 2015 NFL season, winning all four of their games thus far. Whether you want to argue that this is the result of Tom Brady and company wanting to stick it to the world after Deflategate (maybe?) or that the team is just happy to be able to worry about nothing more than playing football (more likely), there’s no denying that the Patriots have looked really good to start the season.

‘Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits’

Comic sci-fi novel profane and smart with sharp satiric edge

Science fiction tends to be at its best when it embraces the carte blanche opportunity inherent to the genre. Whether it’s a far-flung future or the day after tomorrow, out there in deep space or right in our backyard, sci-fi shines brightest when it takes full advantage of the notion that anything is possible.

Red Sox Report Card - 2015 Postmortem

With the regular season over for more than a week and the playoffs in full swing, we have achieved a little distance from the disappointing 2015 Boston Red Sox.

While this team closed out with a surprisingly strong September, they still failed to finish the season above .500 thanks to losing all four games in October. And a strong finish did little to erase the team’s fairly awful performance for the lion’s share of the season.

A ‘Walk’ on the wild side

‘The Walk’ tells a taut (and true) tale

We’re drawn to outlying examples of human endeavor. There’s something undeniably compelling about the idea of someone accomplishing something that has never been done before – particular when that something is incredibly dangerous.

‘Pan’ doesn’t quite pan out

Reimagined prequel lacking in magic

It’s no secret that Hollywood of late has made a lot of money by way of revisiting stories and characters from the past. We live in a world of sequels and prequels, one powered by the notion that nostalgia encourages us to open our wallets.
