Here are only 7 Habits of the very, very rich and famous. Continue reading

The Top Five Reasons Soccer (Futbol) Is The Most Popular Sport In The World

I totally believe that there is a 14 year old kid with glasses and a beaten up copy of the Global Almanac of Soccer that can name year, game, minute and player goal of any World Cup goal for the last 50 years off the top of his head.

As Americans, we always seem to be blindsided every four years by the amazingly over the top response to the World Cup that happens everywhere else in the world but here. We forget that our little corner of the world does not set the standard in insane crazy sports fandom for the rest of humanity.

Pearl Harbor Review and Redux – 06-15-01

(This is an i-Pocalypse flashback to a review posted on an earlier version of the website in June of 2001.)

Directed by wunderkind director Michael Bay (Armageddon), from a screenplay by Randall Wallace (Braveheart), Pearl Harbor is three hours of soft focus, earth tones and high octane CGI. It is loosely based on the true story of a big battle and the lives of some little people. Sometime in the 1900’s, which would be in the 20th century (I understand the math in that equation, but I still find it strange), there was a big war. This big war happened after an earlier big war, but before two smaller more politically incorrect wars (this of course does not include countless other wars that get little to no marketing attention from Hollywood).
