Hello readers, happy Monday! Whew, what a weekend. The weather's gorgeous here in the upper Midwest (albeit in the cool side, I mean mid 60s for high in August!!) so I've been outside most of the time, even spending time of the MN State Fair all Saturday, though I'm no fair-goer by a long shot! …

Hate advertising? Make better ads. – that's director Doug Pray's statement on its official site. As an interface designer who once yearned to be in advertising, this is absolutely fascinating.

The show I’ll be watching this Fall: THREE RIVERS

I haven't been a TV watcher much, if at all, lately. I can count with my hands how many times per month I turn it on to watch a scheduled program. When I do, it's either to watch the news, weather, or whatever happens to be on when I get on my elliptical machine. Somehow …

What A-list Actors Can Learn from Sharlto Copley

District 9 is one of those powerful movies that stays with me long after I saw it (check out my review of the movie). For the most part, it's Copley's performance that makes the film work for me. Sure, the documentary style technique and all that technical stuff blew me away at first, but once …

My thoughts on AVATAR Day

The buzz surrounding James Cameron's AVATAR flick goes on and on. Whether people like what they've seen so far or not, the marketing machine at Fox, including Cameron himself, know that any buzz is better than none at all.

EXTRACT – a must-see Labor day comedy

If you've seen Office Space, then you know Mike Judge is great at comedies set in the workplace. The trailer had me in stitches even after repeated viewings! Extract stars Jason Bateman (Juno, Arrested Development) who plays Joel, the owner of a bottled beverage factory. He is one step away from selling his flavor extract …
