Margin Call
I quit watching the latest Pirates movie to watch this. I have no idea what that film was about and why Penelope Cruz still gets acting work. Utter, utter waste of time. Margin Call is tightly written …
reviewed United States Postal Service (USPS). November 09, 2011
Probably the worst thing for the USPS is that it's controlled by Congress, giving them no power to determine their own fate or profitability. In a classic example of how the Federal Government can …

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Divorce
It's not that I hate Kim Kardashian so much as a toxic media culture that enables these kind of shallow, vapid avatars to thrive. It seems like there's no end of Paris Hiltons and Lindsay Lohans …

posted a Quick Tip about Orange. December 09, 2011
Nothing rhymes with orange. Until now. I have created the word borange, which describes people who both suntan and talk too much.

The Smurfs
They made a movie of this? What happened? Were the rights to Dino the Last Dinosaur too expensive?

Occupy UC Davis Pepper Spray Incident
Shameful. Truly shameful. They should fire the cops involved.

Take a moment to watch his 15 minute speech at Stanford in 2005 - very insightful: http://goo.gl/zfyeL

Just heard you snagged a pair of "Golden Thumb" awards. Many Congrats! Always enjoy your take on things. Keep up the good work!
March 07, 2011
Many thanks - much appreciated.
March 03, 2011
Congratulations on your dual win! Great writing and awesome speeches. I really enjoyed them. :)
March 03, 2011
Thanks Adrianna - and to you too! Let's keep cranking out those reviews for 2011..
March 05, 2011
I hear you there! I'm starting the 2011 year *very* slowly. I keep trying to get more reviews out, but other things get me distracted. Darn rl! These next two weeks will be a bit hectic because of my cat's illness and traveling, but after that, I'm ready to get settled and start writing again!
March 03, 2011
Congrats on your double win, J! Glad to finally be able to hear Lunch's "token Brit's" accent ;P
March 03, 2011
Thanks Debbie! You know I'm *really* from West Texas, right? It's a Marfa twang.
March 03, 2011
Congratulations on your award wins.
March 03, 2011
Thanks Chris - much appreciated! I think my Mom thinks I won an Oscar but I keep telling her I wasn't involved with The King's Speech. :-)
March 03, 2011
Go ahead -- tell her The King's Speech was entirely your idea. One Golden Thumb is for your direction of the film, and the other is for your screenplay.

I did nominate & vote! LOL... hope it'll certainly make me happier, healthier and wealthier!!!! You want THE THUMB real bad ;-) If I voted 2 out of 3, do I get free consultation on site building?! :-D
March 03, 2011
Thanks Sharrie! The two Golden Thumbs have already put dents in the shelves, and kittens are much happier everywhere. All bribes are paid in Monopoly money of course. :-) I can always help you with the site, so np - it's the magic of LAMP (Linux, Apache, something and WordPress).
March 03, 2011
Congrats! I was in HKIA on the way to Bangkok when it was announced! I know you'd have won at least 2 if not 3 of the nominations! Excellent job! I'd take you up on your offer in a few day. In fact, I do have something I need help with, courtesy of your referral the last time. Will write u soon! Thanks again!
