Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Shower

Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Shower

After ending the night with two deep drama films last night, it was nice to see something a bit lighter first thing today. Well, light as far as comedy… but definitely not one for kids! The Shower is about a group of unemployed, underemployed, and former members of show business, all with hopes of someday making it in Hollywood.

Rob Miller: My Trip to Augusta National

Rob Miller: My Trip to Augusta National

Do you remember when you were a kid and that sense of excitement you felt the night before your first trip to Disney World? Think back to that feeling, and the thoughts of meeting Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, and you’ll know the feelings and thoughts I had running through my head this past Sunday night, the night before the first practice round of the 2013 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club.

Artist Interview: 1-on-1 with miggs

Artist Interview: 1-on-1 with miggs

I love when random moments become gems. That gem came for me recently when I discovered the band miggs. What was random about it was how I came about my encounter with the group. They are currently on tour with Scott Weiland and his new band the Wildabouts. As a long time STP fan I was trying to arrange a meet & greet with Weiland but instead found myself on the miggs tour bus doing an interview with them.

The Average Age of a PGA TOUR Player in 2013

The Average Age of a PGA TOUR Player in 2013

Golf statistics are a fascinating thing. Golf analysts have poured over statistical data and have been coming up with interesting correlations and factoids since the game began. Many have wondered about the average age of professional golfers. If you’re referring to club pros than the average age is simply irrelevant, because they will range from the young to retirement age old. For those thinking more along the lines of touring PGA professionals the average age is quite simple to calculate.

Movie Review: Johnny Depp is Rango

Movie Review: Johnny Depp is Rango

The other night, I sat down to watch Rango. Five minutes in, and I was bored. We turned it off and started watching The IT Crowd. It is a great show, if you understand that humor. Anyway, I started posting about it on Twitter, and my friend Kyle Brooks said he had seen it. I asked if he would be interested in writing a guest blog post for me. I asked him to review the movie. I haven’t seen more than five minutes of this movie, but I wanted his take on it. I respect his opinion on TV shows and movies, so I knew he would give it a fair review. According to his Twitter page, Kyle is, “I’m the Crazy Halien of Indianapolis who’s still waiting to take @HaleyReinhart out on that guacamole date.”

Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia Guest Blog Post

A coworker and I got into a discussion about the credibility of Wikipedia. (Ricky) said that he uses the site all the time and has never received wrong information. He truly believes that Wikipedia is a credible source and that you can rely on it for factual information. I believe that Wikipedia is not a creditable source. The main problem I have is that Wikipedia does not seek out experts in the fields they have information about. Instead they let anyone who can use a [...]

Conan the Barbarian 3D Movie Review

This is where Conan The Barbarian begins. Conan is literally born into the battlefield and fighting seems to be all he cares about, except for his father played by Ron Perlman. Perlman is only on screen for a short amount of time but he appears to be bored teaching his son how to become the ultimate warrior. His village, and his father, are destroyed by a deadly warrior by the name of Khalar Zim, who just wants the missing piece of a mask so he can [...]

Beat the Odds: 50/50 Movie Review

Do you know what it’s like to be living a perfectly normal, happy life as a young adult in their late 20′s and be diagnosed with cancer and be told that you might die from it? Unfortunately I do. 50/50 is a comedic movie to give those, not so fortunate people a feel of what young adults facing cancer go through. 70,000 young adults (aged 18-39) get diagnosed with cancer each year. We sit in waiting rooms with people two to three times our age facing a death [...]

Spotlight Indy 2011 Presented by the Indianapolis Performing Arts Community

When Ricky described it to me, he told me that there were about twenty or so acts, but each act only got a few minutes for their performance. My reply was “so you never get bored!” It sounded like a great idea, and I was not disappointed. Spotlight Indy 2011 included a variety of local performing artists from the Indianapolis area, everything from theatre groups to orchestras to dance groups and more. Asia LaBouche of the “Ladies of [...]
