Paul’s DVD Reviews

“Time to nut up or shut up!” — Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee in Zombieland (2009).

If you think I’ve been posting a lot of DVD reviews lately, you’re right. I’m doubling the frequency of DVD review posts in an effort to catch up with movies I’ve watched, cataloged, and previously reviewed on Facebook. Trouble is, [...]

Photoblogging Donna’s Organizing Spree

Damn! I went away for a motorcycle ride this morning and came home to find Donna in the middle of a cleaning spree. She’s particularly proud of her sewing room, and I must admit, it’s looking pretty organized. Photos, please:

I Was Wrong

So, it wasn’t Rush who broke hate radio’s N-word barrier after all. It was Laura Schlessinger.

Will there be consequences? À la Don Imus?

In my earlier post, I expressed the opinion that Rush could get away with it. Laura, I don’t know. Maybe if Rush backs her up?

Paul’s DVD Reviews

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost [...]
