I like hearing from people.

I do the lion's share of housework because I work from home, and something I do every day after work is turn on the TV while I do dishes and make dinner.  Yesterday I flipped on the tube to find Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was playing.  

Let me giv...

I've been interested in the psyche of faith healers since the 80's.  Truth be told, I've even been to a few healing services.  Tongues (gibberish) have been spoken in my presence (though never by me).  Miracles have been claimed (though never seen or documented)....

 What a pretty screensaver.

If I hired you to write the next Jurassic Park installment, what elements would have to exist in your script?  

  • T-Rex roaring with its jaws wide open for the camera

  • Raptors figuring things out

The Rock meets the schlock 

I have one very fond memory of playing Rampage the arcade game back in the 1980's.  My family had gone to Las Vegas (before Vegas was remotely anything like it is now) and we stayed at a little hotel with a restaurant which had a tiny arcade...

It has to be almost two decades to the day I cracked my first book software development.  I was learning C in college and HTML/JavaScript/Front-Page-Extensions *cough* on the side for my job. It has been a very long road to this point.  I've decided to just free form s...

Last weekend we were camping at the beach and I was lying in bed flipping through channels (yes we do "glamping" exclusively) and I came across a movie I hadn't seen since I had kids.  My wife was flipping through her phone and I asked her if she'd ever seen Rudy...

A few months ago I was at a conference being interviewed about my courses for LinkedIn Learning and was asked why I enjoy teaching.  I didn't have time to construct a sophisticated answer so I just kind of spit out the most honest thing I could think of at the moment.

Let me heap some praise on one of the greatest films every made.  Yes it's been praised.   Yes it was nominated for awards (won Academy Award for best screenplay--duh.  Was not nominated for best film--a tragedy).

 Jim Carrey's finest performance to date.

The older I get, the crankier and less accommodating I am to sticking with things I know I won't like.  I've decided to compile a list of things I see in movies that make me turn them off.  This seriously annoys my wife since I can rarely finish a movie these days.  I'...

Spoiler free.

Yes I know I'm a little late on this one, but there's a very good reason I didn't see Blade Runner 2049 earlier: I'm not a fan of the original.  

Well, actually that's not true.  I've never even seen the whole thing.  A few times I've tried to watch th...
