Netflix Predicts the End of TV

November 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said recently that he thinks the era of broadcast TV will last until around 2030 or so. Is that just the trash talk of an internet streaming TV company or is he right? I think a bit of both. I do think that we are in the beginning stages of a paradigm shift and have said so many times. That doesn’t make me a genius (I am a genius for many other reasons) because it’s obvious that things are changing. How much are they changing? From 2002 to 2012, there was ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Katie Couric

November 27, 2014 // 0 Comments

Alright, alright, alright it’s Thanksgiving.  Before you pick up your forks and stuff your face silly, it’s television Thursday over here at the daily hottie.  Who better to feature than Katie Couric who has hosted the Macy’s Parade from 1991 to 2005. Katie is originally from Virginia and worked as a stripper in college to pay her way through.  I’m kidding, she’s straight laced with nothing all that interesting in her background.  Her maternal ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Emma Watson

November 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s wildcard Wednesday over here at the Daily Hottie meaning I can pick any female I want.  We have a lot of nerd followers (probably fans of Midwest Erienne) so for them, I’m going with Emma Watson. Emma comes to us from across the pond and is pretty much as classy as they come.  Originally born in Paris, she grew up in London with her mother.  Her parents were both lawyers that divorced when she was only five. We all know her as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter.  Did you ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Shannen Doherty

November 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s trashy Tuesday here at the daily hottie and today’s hottie is one of the original trashy hotties.  Maybe I’m mixing crazy with trashy a little bit here, but so what. Shannen’s originally a Southern girl born in Memphis, TN.  It might help you understand her a little better to know that she was raised as a Southern Baptist.  The word strict doesn’t do those guys justice.  It’s no wonder she rebelled when she got a little older. Personally she’s ...Click for More

She sees them walking in a straight line, that’s not really her style. And they all got the same heartbeat, but hers is falling behind. Nothing in this world could ever bring them down. Yeah, they’re invincible, and she’s just in the background. Echosmith Look, I’m not going to talk about yesterday’s stuff because I’m sure it’s all been said and I don’t care to add to it.

Daily Hottie – Shakira

November 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s music Monday at the Daily Hottie and we’re going to go with a little Latin flair today with Shakira.  She’s originally from Colombia and hit it big with Hips Don’t Lie back in 2005. She is an only child kinda of.  I say kind of because her father was previously married and had eight children from that marriage.  So Shakira has eight older half-siblings. In grade school she was always a performer, dancing on desks and tables at an early age.  Interestingly enough ...Click for More

In the white room with black curtains near the station. Black-roof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings. Silver horses run down moonbeams in your dark eyes. Dawn-light smiles on you leaving, my contentment. Cream It’s Thanksgiving week so I’m sure a lot of you are either barely working or not working at all.  That’s good, we all need to take it easy every now and again.  Of course, I’m still high on a Bears win setting up a big Thanksgiving day showdown with the ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Kate Beckinsale

November 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

Inspired by The Cure, today’s theme is It’s Friday and I’m in Love.  It’s hard to argue being in love with Kate Beckinsale. Kate comes to us from across the pond.  She was an only child and both her parent were actors.  She appeared on her first TV show when she was only 4. When she was 5 her dad died suddenly of a heart attack.  He was only 31 at the time, which let’s face it had to suck. So that at age 15 when she suffered a nervous breakdown and anorexia and ...Click for More

It’s television Thursday at the Daily Hottie and who better to feature than a chick from one of my all time favorite shows – Evangeline Lilly. If you’re looking for a troubled or interesting past you need to move on, she’s pretty much as clean as they come.  Born in Canada, she played soccer and was on student council in high school.  She grew up Christian and at 18 went on a three week mission trip to the Philippines. She was discovered by the Ford Modeling Agency ...Click for More

It’s Wildcard Wednesday where I can pick any hottie I want and today I’m going with Drew Barrymore. I tried to follow all of the famous actors in her family but it’s a long list on Wikipedia.  On top of that her god parents are Steven Spielberg and Sophia Loren.  Oh did I mention that she is the god mother of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Francis Bean. She’s had quite the life at age 39.  I guess that happens when you start hanging out at Studio 54 ...Click for More
