Things she wants not a companion but some pages in her journal Things go wrong I wouldn’t dare to all but keep it all internal You can’t realize the danger that I’m in if she calls me, I’m not home Stepdad I’m not sure what it is about Thursday, but I always have a hard time with it. Something about Friday being so close, and yet so far. Plus, I’m going on vacation at the end of the weekend and I’m having a hard time focusing at work. Since you never work when ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Claire Coffee

November 12, 2014 // 0 Comments

Today’s daily hottie theme is Wildcard Wednesday where any hot female anywhere is fair game.  I thought about going with an Olympic athlete today, but as I just watched Grimm on my DVR yesterday, you get Claire Coffee. Claire Coffee is originally from San Francisco and is 34 years old.  She did attend good old Northwestern University right here in the Chicago area (one of our other writers is also a Northwestern Grad – ask him about it if you have an hour to spare sometime). She ...Click for More

I can’t stop the way I feel.  Things you do don’t seem real. Tell me what you’ve got in mind, ’cause we’re running out of time. Won’t you ever set me free?  This waiting ’round’s killing me. She drives me crazy like no one else. She drive me crazy, and I can’t help myself.

Trashy Tuesday – Pamela Anderson

November 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

So sticking with a theme, Tuesday’s will be “Trashy Tuesdays”.  You know celebrities that are a mess or that are hot or just a hot mess.  In that vain we’ll start Trashy Tuesday with maybe the trashiest of all – Pamela Anderson. It’s funny reading her Wikipedia Page which lists her as a model, author, activist, and former showgirl.  Pretty much the same path as Jane Austin or Maya Angelou I’m sure. Pamela Anderson was the originator of the sex tape, ...Click for More

Simpsons Futurama Crossover Opens Old Wounds

November 10, 2014 // 1 Comment

Did you watch The Simpsons Futurama crossover last night? I did. It was on before the Bears started playing so I watched this before tuning in to the Bears debacle. Overall, I didn’t think it was bad. There was one thing they did in this episode though that I know I’m not the only one to see it. The Simspons Futurama crossover opened an old wound for Futurama fans last night. Here is the scene. Be warned, if you are a Futurama fan, you will know exactly what this is and you are ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Taylor Swift

November 10, 2014 // 0 Comments

Again, going with themes for The Daily Hottie.  Monday’s will be Music Mondays and feature a hot musician.  So let’s start with none other than Taylor Swift. It doesn’t really appear that Taylor has really had that much of a struggle in the music business.  She moved from Pennsylvania to Nashville in 2003 and by 2006 had released her first album that had a two songs that reached No. 1 on the country charts. The only real knock on Taylor is her inability to keep a man.  ...Click for More

Broke into the old apartment, this is where we used to live. Broken glass, broke and hungry, broken hearts and broken bones This is where we used to live. Why did you paint the walls? Why did you clean the floor? Why did you plaster over the hole I punched in the door? Barenaked Ladies I’m not going to talk about the Bears.  Nope, will wait till next fall to talk about them again.  Instead how about a throwback to Barenaked Ladies.  FYI, when you are looking for a picture of the band ...Click for More

A Few Good Men Live on NBC

November 7, 2014 // 0 Comments

NBC has been really getting in to the live TV business. They did The Sound of Music live last year and will be doing Peter Pan live this year. Now there is news that they are working on an agreement to do A Few Good Men live. Most of us know A Few Good Men from the 1992 Tom Cruise movie. Before it was a movie, it was a Broadway play that first ran in 1989 written by The West Wing’s Aaron Sorkin. NBC is in the early stages of working out a deal with Sorkin to bring his play to live TV. He ...Click for More

Selfie Cancelled by ABC

November 7, 2014 // 0 Comments

Well this isn’t a surprise. ABC cancelled their awful, awful show Selfie a week after cancelling their other lowly rated rom-com Manhattan Love Story. I am surprised that Selfie lasted as long as it did. Other than Mulaney, I don’t think there was a show that was worse than Selfie that premiered this fall. It was another of the countless attempts at adapting My Fair Lady but this time it was modern. Yea. That’s right. They took that My Fair Lady premise and brought it to 2014 ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Audrey Hepburn

November 7, 2014 // 1 Comment

We’ve been at this web writing thing (industry term) a little over two years now and we are constantly changing how we do things.  For example, we used to have a daily hottie in our Around The Web post but we decided to break that out into a separate daily hottie post. To further change it up a bit, what I want to do on Friday’s is have the daily hottie be someone that everyone agrees is a classic beauty.  Someone that will always be considered forever beautiful.  Kind of a ...Click for More

Simpsons and Futurama Crossover Couch Gag

November 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

The Simpsons have released a preview of the couch gag that will air on Sunday night’s Simpsons and Futurama crossover. There has already been a crossover once this season with the Simpsons and another animated show, Family Guy that was actually pretty well done. I’m looking forward to the Simpsons and Futurama crossover. Futurama is one of my favorite shows. I watch it every day. It gets funnier and funnier. This crossover makes more sense because the shows are both created by Matt ...Click for More

Is a Sopranos Prequel in the Works?

November 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

Ever since the much loved show with the universally despised finale went off the air in 2007, there has been talk of a Sopranos prequel. Sopranos creator David Chase has never come out and said that there is no way it would ever happen so the door has always been left open. Just this spring there was talk of a Sopranos movie project that would look back at the Soprano family in America in the 1920s. That project didn’t materialize, but still, the door was not closed. Chase told the ...Click for More
