Vince Vaughn Confirmed for True Detective

September 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

Variety is reporting today that Vince Vaughn has signed on for season 2 of True Detective. I don’t know about you, but I think that is fantastic news. I love Vince Vaughn. Yes I know that he tends to play the same character in everything, but his character is good. He’s also got the creepy side down pat so he can play funny or creepy very well. Vaughn has signed on to play the bad guy in season 2 of True Detective. He will be playing the part of Frank Semyon, a man in danger of ...Click for More

Gotham Premiere Review

September 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

One of the TV season’s most anticipated shows premiered last night. I didn’t watch it live because we are in Chicago and the Bears were playing on Monday Night Football, but I stayed up late for you, the reader, to make sure I could report to you my thoughts which I know you are dying to know. Which brings me to another point, who at Fox thought it would be a good idea to put the Gotham premiere up against Monday Night Football? Who do they think is going to be watching this show? ...Click for More

Dancing With The Stars Week Two (Performance)

September 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

Somehow this show gets crazy ratings, and I got suckered into watching it with my mom. This is already the second week of competition (We lost the supremely annoying Lolo Jones last week), so I’m starting to get a feel for the people. I really have three categories for how I feel about these people. For the most part, I had no idea who many of these stars were. In some instances I’m too young, in others, too removed from my generation. I broke it down for you, though I’m not ...Click for More

It’s been awhile since I’ve had any time to post about shows as I’ve been busy at my day job.  I know it’s tough on you guys because without me it’s just Midwest Mike jamming his shows down your throat and calling you stupid if you don’t like them.  I grew up with him so his verbal assaults don’t affect me. So to our fans I apologize.  Going forward I will be here to defend those of us who happen to like sappy dramas like Scandal or Nashville.  When ...Click for More

Today is election day in Scotland. If you’ve been following the news, you know that the people of Scotland head to the polls today to vote on whether to remain part of the United Kingdom or become their own free country. My family is of Scottish heritage so while I have a passing interest in the election today, that’s about where my interest stops. That is until we get some TV personalities involved in the news. If that happens, we have to take notice and now, a very well known ...Click for More

“If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you” Henry Rollins   Yes, that is a quote rather than an actual song. But it counts because he wrote lots of songs, they just…aren’t the best lyrically. But the first time I picked up one of his novels at 15 years old, I fell in love. Over the ...Click for More
