    Hearing about Jamison’s passing made me flash back to the first time I met him up in Minnesota at a charity golf event put on by my late friend Fergie Fredricksen, who was the former lead singer of Toto as well as other groups. Fredricksen introduced me to Jamison in the lobby of the hotel before we headed over to the concert that evening where Fredricksen, Jamison and numerous other well-known musicians were going to perform. The place was packed that night and Jamison and Fredricksen, along with the other performers, belted out some of the big hits for which they were best known.




     
  • “When The Game Stands Tall” Falls Short

    “When The Game Stands Tall” Falls Short

    Though it’s not a film that deserves the 18% rating on www.rottentomatoes.com, it’s definitely a forgettable film with very forgettable performances that fall in to the “been there done that” area of sports films.

    Right off the bat before I saw the movie, I was already worried about the change from an R rating to a PG-13 rating. My guess as to why they decided on this action is to lure the people under the age of seventeen in to the movie theater. Which automatically raises eyebrows, seeing as the majority of viewers of the first two films were ALREADY teenagers/early twenties.

    For those of you who don’t know about the Mary Worth comic strip, it’s been around since 1938. Mary Worth is one of the longest-running continuity strips or “comic-page soap operas”, a genre dedicated to the millions of readers who thrive on continued stories told in brief daily episodes with cliffhanger endings.

    Tank McNamara’s 40th Anniversary: Cartoonist Bill Hinds talks “Tank”

    Entertainment August 6, 2014 1:08 pm no comments

    In earlier years, “Tank” was portrayed as a hilarious buffoon ex-professional athlete totally unqualified to do his journalistic job. There were a lot of gags focused on “Tank’s” fumble-mouth mistakes and on his tendency to jump on anything loose on the floor as if it were a fumbled football.

    The Box Office: Guardians of the Galaxy Review – Find the Time and Space for It

    Its pace is flawless, the movie never takes itself too seriously and the characters are just so damn likable. It’s a possibility with the originality in the characters and story that we could be seeing a sci-fi franchise in the making that we haven’t seen since Star Wars. Take the kids, take the girlfriend, take your friends, I don’t care. See Guardians of the Galaxy and have a freakin’ blast. And don’t forget, “We are Groot.”

    Though entertaining at times, Lucy is that film that comes out five to ten times a year that will give you all of the mindless special effects and technology it can possibly give you but without any hint of a decent storyline or even a shred of character development.




     
  • The Death of Archie

    The Death of Archie

    Entertainment July 11, 2014 2:29 pm no comments

    It appears that death has been a revolving door in the comic book world, especially in the superhero-titled comics. If this were DC or Marvel comics, Archie might end up being resurrected just in time for a new movie featuring the character. However, there is no need for that here as Archie is only dying in the “Life with Archie” series. All the other versions of the Archie titles and incarnations will continue to live on.
