Rotten, Rotten Tomatoes

 The next person who tries to use a Rotten Tomatoes rating to tell me that a movie sucks is going to be backhanded.  Why do people put so much stock into what this website says? Of course, anyone who says “Rotten Tomatoes just likes hating everything” can automatically be pointed toward the fact that they […]

Pay It Forward–Get The Most Out Of Your Ex’s Crap

Clip from “Rex Is Not Your Lawyer”!

 Hooray!  The Powers That Be may have denied us our David Tennant fix by not taking “Rex Is Not Your Lawyer” to series, but we now have a clip!    Verdict: American accent is OK, but distracting.  Why couldn’t they let him use his natural accent?  David Tennant using his Scottish accent is at least […]

It’s Morbidly Delicious!

The practice of burying the dead may date back 350000 years, as evidenced by a 45-foot-deep pit in Atapuerca, Spain, filled with the fossils of 27 hominids of the species Homo heidelbergensis, a possible ancestor of Neanderthals and modern humans. There are at least 200 euphemisms for death, including “to be in Abraham’s bosom,” “just […]
