Fifteen Minutes are Over...

In my never ending quest to reach the end of the internet, I stumbled upon an article about the Kim Kardashian "flour bombing" incident. Now, this article can be found on tvguide.com or just go to yahoo. Kim Kardashian is number one on trending and for some odd reason, I think she is on the list every week. Whether it's due to a premiere of a new show, 2 am pictures in bed (in full hair and make up) or her "marriage' to Kris Humphries (still don't know how he's the most hated player in the NBA), she will always be there. It probably doesn't help that she is mentioned by everyone from lowly bloggers (that's me) to notable stars (I'm looking at you, Jon Hamm), but she and the rest of her clan will not go away. I mean, even Lamar Odom is part of it all now. How come he's not one of the most hated players in the NBA?

Anyway, from my original point of the tvguide.com article, I found three phrases particularly interesting. Here they are:

1.) "Kardashian, who refused medical attention..." Really? A bag of flour dumped on her head and shoulders caused medical professionals to rush to her side? Did people on the red carpet try to call an ambulance for the pampered princess? Did the assailant also crack a few eggs on her head and try to bake her at 350 degrees for one hour? I'm not exactly sure where "medical attention" would even come into play. It was a bag of flour and I wish that TMZ would answer some of these pressing questions for me.

2.) "After Kardashian reportedly decided to press charges..." Once again: really? Ms. Kardashian was joking about the entire thing a few minutes after it happened and now she may want to press charges. Was here image ruined because of the flour bombing? Did Ms. Kardashian suffer nights of agonizing pain since it happened? I'm guessing not. I'm not an officer of the law, but it is my guess the assailant will get a fine and some community service. That's if charges are pressed and anyone willingly pursues action. As it were, I'm sure the accused will gladly take a few hours of cleaning up trash along the Ronald Reagan freeway to always have the memory of flour bombing Kim Kardashian.

3.) "I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying so this is a huge disappointment to me," said Khloe Kardashian (in regards to the assailant being affiliated with PETA). What one is she again? The one married to Lamar Odom? I understand the point, I really do, but come on. Who hasn't wanted to flour bomb any one of the Kardashians? (Except Bruce Kard- er Jenner. Bruce Jenner. He is an Olympic hero.)

That is all. This is my "once-a-year" Kradashian post. I got it out of the way a little early this year. By this time next year, I hope E! has turned their channel into a 24/7 all access channel into the Kardashian's life. Then we can watch every single waking moment of the troubled and hard lives they lead. Maybe Joel McHale can narrate.

'Til we meet again.

The Bromance of Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…

"Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we're getting close."- Negan, The Walking Dead

And people thought Ramsay Bolton was sadistic.


The much anticipated season seven premiere of The Walking Dead hit the airwaves last Sunday. Boy, was it a doozy.
I am not going to spend much time on what side of the liked/didn't like it/I'm never watching again spectrum I fall in. I will say that I was enraptured, on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire one hour, six minutes (including commercials) of the episode. This was an episode that filled me with a sense of existential dread for the characters inhabiting The Walking Dead world. It is a feeling that is still with me nearly two days later.
As a disclaimer, I am only through the first ten volumes of the graphic novels. I have yet to reach the Negan arc. I am also on the side of the court that didn't m…

American Sports Franchises Thirsty for a Title

A billy goat. A dash of bad luck. A sprinkle of a die hard fan. Leon Durham. Add those together and you have the beginnings of the recipe for the curse that has haunted the Chicago Cubs for over 70 years.
In winning the 2016 World Series, the Cubs collected their first World Series title since 1908. Their seven-game victory effectively ended the longest title drought among the four major professional sports leagues in the United States.


Now that the talk of a goat and Bartman can be put to rest, it is now the Cleveland Indians sitting on the longest drought in the Major League baseball. The Indians will be discussed here, as will the other longest droughts in the three other major American sports leagues.
MLB-Cleveland Indians
The Indians moved through the American League this postseason with ease. First, they swept the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. Then, they took care of the Toronto Blue Jays in five games.
Yes, the Indians lost in the World Series after l…
