Donald Trump’s Incoherent Reality TV (Un) Presidential Campaign

February 8, 2016


  In this week’s post mortem on the Iowa Caucus and the cratering of Donald Trump’s storyline of dominance and inevitability, I outlined a number of takeaways from the outcome of the election and the Trump campaign’s response to it. There is quite a bit more that is resonating outward from the initial ‘Big Bang’ […]

By the Waters of Babble-on – and on and on and on.

February 7, 2014


I noticed that Roger Waters, formerly of the iconic rock band Pink Floyd, has been publicly scolding a few fellow celebrities in the field of music and film for not sharing his fanatical anti-Israel political views.  Specifically, Scarlett Johansson drew Waters’ ire for filming some ads for the Israeli beverage maker SodaStream and classic rocker Neil […]

Hey, Hey, Paula

June 23, 2013


I was thinking about what pop tune would be an ideal soundtrack to this confused and unconvincing performance by the horse’s patoote otherwise known as Paula Deen.  Here’s what I came up with, but I’d like to hear your suggestions: why me lord? what have i ever done, to deserve even one, of the pleasure […]

Please Don’t Feed the Beast!

February 7, 2013


I frequently receive requests from various groups asking me to join their movement or to send an ’emergency contribution’.

December 31, 2012

The Hollywood Lonely Hearts Club Band

August 28, 2012


One of my most trusted theories about movie people and celebrities in the entertainment field more generally, is that when the well has run dry and even a ‘C’ list invitation would look like a Porterhouse to a starving dog – these Hollywood buffoons will resort to just about anything to get the attention of […]

Moore Sarandon Baloney

August 2, 2012


It never ceases to amaze me that people will cough up money to go hear some whining windbags pontificate on subjects that they have no grasp of.  This only happens when the windbags happen to be actors, filmmakers and/or celebrities.  I refer to the report detailing an empty headed gab session between the propagandist and […]
