Bust it! How the hell did it get to be November already? Before you know it we’ll be gorging ourselves on turkey. Then it will be Black Friday and that can only lead to Christmas. Wow. But I’m getting ahead of myself. This week we saw a typhoon of voter unhappiness turn control of the…

Friday LinkFrogging – 8/27/10

    Sometimes things are so obvious you just can’t see them.  I mean I do this week in and week out and I try to be topical and/or timely with my selections, but somehow, and believe me, I don’t know how, I’ve overlooked Charlize Theron.  The obvious time to use Ms. Theron was during the…

Friday LinkFrogging – 5/14/10

Take that Kristen Stewart. Welcome back cats and kittens. The word of the week is Adenovirus.  You’ve been warned.

Its that time of year again. Time for the studios to roll out the big blockbusters full of explosions and other enjoyable types of gratuity.  This is the time of year when we get to enjoy movies rather than films. Last year, The Hangover was the big surprise and Land of the Lost was the…

Friday LinkFrogging

Well, if its Friday, then it must be time once again for your friendly neighborhood GonzoGeeks to share their favorite finds from the internet this week. Because nobody asked, LinkFrogging, a term created by Stephe, is that activity where you follow a link off the page you were looking for and then another link and…

Recasting “Smokey and the Bandit”

It was 1977.  I was 9 years old when my parents took my sister and I to see “Smokey and the Bandit.”  They took us on the condition that we wouldn’t listen to the “bad words.”  We lived a sheltered life. We didn’t know which ones were the bad ones. But I digress. If you’re…

Summer Movies 2009

It’s popcorn movie season again.  You know that time of year when special effects and explosions take the place of actual plot and dialogue. I’m not complaining.  I like summer movies.  I don’t have to think.  I get to visit old friends.  Generally, I get to be enterained. I perused the month-by-month movie listing over…
