It’s HuffNo Friday and time to let down at The Planet after a long week. There’s KQ’s thread for laughs and music an Afghanistan thread for discussions of substance and this thread to unload about, satirize and skewer The Huffington Post. I posted this on the music thread but I […]

HuffNo FRIDAY!!! I know it’s early to start the party but I’m just too psyched about HuffNo so I can’t wait to get things going.  Now someone else can start a serious thread for HuffNo Friday if they want but I’m serious about my music. I have a very eclectic […]

The House presented its health care reform bill today. So naturally, the top story at HuffPo this evening, at this moment, written by Damn…I mean Dame Arianna herself  is “Huffington Post Game Changers! Vote!”. You may criticize Arianna for her opportunism, misrepresentation, fear of criticism and enormous feet but she […]

I have had the misfortune to have caught what appears to be the Swine Flu. Not only do I appear to have all the symptoms but my lungs seem to be filled with bacon fat. This has resulted in my being stranded on the couch for days watching far too […]

As Michael Moore’s new film, “Capitalism, A Love Story” is coming out its seems an appropriate time to reflect on the character of American capitalism and how it has usurped social responsibility and democracy in this country. In the remarkable documentary, “The Corporation”, a segment of the film is dedicated […]

Live from The Chicago Municipal Opera House, bequeathed to the city by Charles Foster (Citizen) Kane, it’s Oscar Night! Tonight is a special ceremony, wherein we honor the Best Pictures to NOT win Best Picture. At what other venue could we possibly hold this auspicious event? Citizen Kane is more than just […]

We Americans are being very wasteful with our natural resources of emotional energy. This is causing a slew of problems affecting our environment including adding a great deal of additional CO2 into the atmosphere,  pollution of political discourse  and a shortage of positive emotional energy. I think the time has […]

Today is what they call in the news business, a “Monday”. Sorry…that’s what we all call today. I meant, today is what they call in the news business a “Slow News Day”. A lack of young white girls being abducted, no new discoveries of the next comfort food that will […]

“Is our children learning?”  This famous grammatically challenged question posed by ex-President Bush, the child who was left behind, has been granted renewed significance thanks to President Obama’s unprecedented impertinence to think, as President, he can talk to our children. Well, unprecedented if you don’t count Bush and Reagan, FDR, […]

I’ve been invited to blah, blah, blah … blog.  I don’t know where to begin but I do know I don’t have much time for it. I was going to blog about working through a famous sushi cookbook and relating my experiences, my failures and my triumphs but I figured I […]

Quentin Tarantino’s backstory is well known, before becoming an enormously successful director, he was a video store clerk obsessed with movies, especially “pulp” and cult films.
