Conflict resolution (03-23-2016)

I used to know what my opinions about things were. And some days I still have a decent handle on it. But on others, I'm a mess of conflicting emotions about stuff. Today is a snow day. I feel really weird about it. On the one hand, it's annoying, because instead of a half day in which I can do work, I have to try to cram it into a smaller window of time. On the other hand, I'm weirdly happy that they have some nice fresh snow to play with. This is beyond bizarre; I stopped enjoying snow around the same time I started having to drive in it.

Then my son came down with a sudden and gross stomach bug. I was somewhat relived he had it on a snow day, because otherwise it would have happened while he was in school and I would have had to bring him home. And who knows how much work I would have gotten done at that point. See, when I have less time, sometimes I can actually get more done.

Play ball! (03-23-2016)

Previewing the 2016 MLB season

Once again, spring has sprung. Regardless of what the weather outside brings, there's no escaping the fact that we're just days away from the beginnings of another baseball season. The crack of the bat and the smack of the mitt will soon surround us.

There's a lot to look forward to in 2016. We get to see the Kansas City Royals as defending champions for the first time in 30 years. We get to watch as generational talents such as Mike Trout and Bryce Harper redefine what a young player can do; we also bear witness to a season-long good-bye from Red Sox all-timer David Ortiz. Exciting young teams like the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros will show us the future of the sport.

Ana Gasteyer brings the party on I'm Hip'

Doing the unexpected has been a hallmark of actress and comedienne Ana Gasteyer's career from the start.

On six wildly successful seasons on 'Saturday Night Live,' Gasteyer displayed remarkable versatility in roles ranging from Martha Stewart and Celine Dion to the host of an NPR food show.

Parts on 'Seinfeld,' 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' 'Frasier' and other comedies confirmed Gasteyer's ability to effortlessly fit into an existing ensemble and find the laugh.

Sometimes you have to take a chance and follow your instincts. Engineer and producer Alan Parsons, long known for the sonic wizardry he bestowed upon highly regarded and hugely successful projects by Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Hollies, Pilot and others, was made an offer that no one thought he could refuse. It was late 1974 and Pink Floyd was preparing to enter Abbey Road Studios in London to record the follow-up to the mega-successful 'Dark Side of The Moon.'

Parsons had devoted more than six months of his life to helping make 'Dark Side' the beloved classic that we know today. Bringing the record to life was equal parts exhilaration and frustration for Parsons, who remembers longing for 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' episodes to air on BBC because it meant the band would take a break to watch, leaving Parsons some quality alone time to prepare mixes without interference.

Latest installment of YA adaptation a dull, derivative mess

As we all know by now, young adult fiction can serve as the source material for some big money film franchises. One of the now-standard quirks of these series is the division of the final book into two separate films all the better to create an additional opportunity to cash in.

The 'Hunger Games' might have finally come to a merciful conclusion, but hey if you're looking for a less interesting knock-off version featuring a thinner plot and weaker performances, perhaps I can interest you in the 'Divergent' series.

The latest in the series is 'Allegiant,' based on part of the third book in Veronica Roth's trilogyand it definitely feels like it. Even in a genre that consists almost entirely of increasingly diminishing returns, the drop-off in these films has proved shockingly steep.
