commented on CNN's 15 Minutes of Shame
There are plenty of reasons to avoid the corporate media. Besides this shameful grandstanding, CNN & most other networks were shameless cheerleaders for the disastrous war in Iraq. They don't deserve *any* audience!
commented on Do You Want a Free (Mean) Dog?
Dogs are overrated, especially the tiny worthless shit machines that women carry around in their purses. At least this guy has some value as a guard dog...
commented on Starting Tonight at SIFF Uptown: A Series of Freakishly Great Films Starring Robert De Niro
David - I hear you - but i respectfully, and strongly, disagree. While Goodfellas is a classic of the mob genre, it is not my favorite. Even though i've seen it 20 times & still enjoy it, i personally prefer The Sopranos (yes i know it's not an even comparison); Donnie Brasco; Godfathers I & II; and yes Casino, which i love for its epic sweep & its full-on decadence & its dead-on retelling of the shocking story of the Chicago mob's ruthless if also forward-looking illicit rule in Vegas ...and this opinion is coming from someone who despises the plastic & ultimately-phony desert haven, even though i've been there a dozen times on my company's dime.
But otherwise, keep up the great writing! ;)
