“EDGE OF DARKNESS” TRAILER

From the look of things, it’s a very good trailer for a very watchable, interesting film. I make no political nor social commentary here — don’t know more about this film (“EDGE OF DARKNESS“) than what I see in this (very good) trailer and have read in internet discussions during it’s development and production — […]

ROGER FRIEDMAN OFFENDS 98% OF HUMANITY

First off, I’m a Conservative — value-wise, opinions, beliefs, personal habits and behaviors — with a liberal sense of humor (“liberal” as in, generously applied) (that means, I still laugh at kindergarten-age jokes even when I realize intellectually they may be utterly foolish – and it also means, I enjoy laughing at silly jokes and […]

WELCOMING THE ‘SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM’

Last week Pope Benedict issued his letter, The Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, and I was extremely pleased to witness this event, which declares the popular return of the Latin Mass for us Catholics (or, Tridentine Mass — read about the variations in the Catholic Mass here — the “English” version of the Mass is called […]

MEL’S “APOCALYPTO” #1 FRIDAY BOX OFFICE

Excellent article from Nikke Finke about the heroic Friday box office results for APOCALYPTO. The film is bloody (exceedingly so, but so was the actual Mayan culture that is re-enacted in this film, as was most if not all of early South and Central American civilizations and some of it still is), but it is […]

WHAT ARE ROB REINER’S VIEWS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST?

Tolerance is universal in it’s appeal and requirements. What does Rob Reiner think about the crucifixion of and human life lived by Jesus Christ? (Reference — REINER: GIBSON COME CLEAN ON ‘PASSION’.) (I note the interesting choice of words by Reiner, as to his need that an author “come clean” as to an enactment of […]

KIRK DOUGLAS WAS NEVER SPARTACUS, HE WAS JUST CAST THAT WAY

Not Mel Gibson — to help explain the context of this image, please refer to DEFAMER, “MEL-I-AM… “ The Mel-Gibson-as-Focus-For-Hollywood/Atheist-Angst just won’t stop. Last weekend, I’d hoped that the boombah had had it’s day (and night, all seven of both of them) since Mel Gibson’s DUI arrest in Malibu, CA in the wee hours of […]

HUFFINGTON: IS SHE RELATED TO H. R. PUFF ‘N STUFF?

I admit it, I have been a bit dumb-struck by the recently noticed DAILY GUT link at BREITBART, right up there on the top among DRUDGE and FOXNEWS and the wire services and similar starry-pulsar sources. But, then, the DAILY GUT just doesn’t have that starry-starry quality, to state the obvious — rather, it’s sort […]

FINALLY, SOMEONE MAKES SENSE: JACKIE MASON and GAVIN DE BECKER

Jackie Mason on FOX today comes forward with good sense about some of the worst reactions to Mel Gibson’s current situation (drunken tirade on a roadside). Jackie Mason is a smart, wise, balanced and good man. At least as to what I’ve heard from him today, as previously read what he’s written. The Los Angeles […]

ANOTHER GIBSON ARTICLE WITH A NONSENSICAL HEADLINE

Just when I was beginning to offer appreciation to the DRUDGE REPORT for (finally) concluding the “Mel Gibson Saga” headlines, I reapproach the site at 4:00 A.M., PST and find more Gibson headlines and links. This morning’s include: This from Reader’s Digest: ” Mel Gibson: Has He Gone Too Far? ” I don’t follow the […]

ADL TO GIBSON: “APOLOGY IS ACCEPTED – FOR NOW”

UPDATE to previous… By way of OUTSIDE THE BELTWAY (“APOLOGY ACCEPTED – FOR NOW“), this news from a few hours ago in THE NEW YORK POST: “‘APOLOGY IS ACCEPTED – FOR NOW‘ By Abraham H. Foxman” I enjoyed this take on the issue by OUTSIDE THE BELTWAY: Anti-Defamation League chairman Abraham Foxman, who called for […]
