Bad career advice

You can tell when a actor/actress is having career problems when they star in a sex flick. Neve Campbell is having career problems. The Rocky Mountain News reviewed the film and wasn’t too flattering in their opinion.

Apparently the movie becomes a series of random sex scenes complete with an orgy in Central Park and another scene with some lesbian action involving Neve Campbell’s character. Unlike the movie Wild Things, Neve does drop her clothes in this one.

Why do actors think that these kind of movies will help their careers. Bo Derek’s career was pretty much ended with Bolero. Elizabeth Berkeley became a laughing stock after Showgirls. Demi Moore’s Striptease was a bomb. Eyes Wide Shut was a disaster for Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Their careers improved in spite of, not because of, that movie which only revealed that Stanley Kubrick had some wierd fantasies.

So why are stars so gullible that they keep doing this stuff?

Update: Add Meg Ryan to the list for “In the Cut”

Aww, how cute?

Here is a question for the ages. Why is a baby with cereal all over his face normally disgusting. Then when you are the one doing the feeding, it’s cute? I’ve never thought a baby with a dirty face was appealling in anyway. Then, last Friday, I was babysitting Cody and feeding him. Suddenly I think, “I’ve got to get a picture of this.” What the…?

The good thing about this weekend: Years from now, when Cody becomes a smartass teenager (redundant phrase) I can now tell him, “I’ve changed your diapers.” 🙂

On the road again

We’re just about ready to get on the road to go back to Colorado. As I’m sitting here in shorts in warm southern New Mexico, the weather report is telling me that the high in the Denver area will be 47 degrees. Chilly.

I would change, but the car is already packed.


Honeybun and I are now officially godparents. It’s somewhat anti-climactic. Cody didn’t get that wet after all, just a little dribble on his head that didn’t even run over his face. He didn’t cry. Not even a whimper either. He is a very good natured baby. He pretty much just looked around wondering what all the hubbub was about. Not much else happened. The whole thing was shorter than a Vegas wedding.

You’d think the church would have a gift-shop that sells “My nephew got baptized and all I got was this lousy t-shirt” t-shirts.

We did get a gift – a plaque that says “Godparents” with a greeting on it. Which is cool. We also got a card from Cody thanking us for being his godparents – but I suspect it was forged. I’m sure he doesn’t know how to write yet. Which leads me to question, what did Dan Rather know and when did he know about the forged greeting card from Cody.

So Jase (you ask), when are you two going to have a kid? Well, Honeybun and I are talking about it. We’re planning to pull the goalie off the ice after the holidays are over.

Low fat blogging

I can’t say that I’ve done on “light” blogging the last few days since my blogging is normally light anyway. So, my posts being even less than usual, my adoring fans are down to low fat blogging at this point.

Why? Well, I’m in Las Cruces, NM visiting my in-laws. My nephew (see archive for February 17th) is getting baptized today. Honeybun and I are godparents. Cool huh?

Sorry, no witty rejoinders, this is a solemn family occasion (I’ll even be wearing a suit and tie) Followed by dinner somewhere.

Get ready to get wet Cody.

What size is this?

Each of the last three nights, I’ve been going to McDonald’s to get an ice cream cone for Honeybun and a chocolate shake for me. At the drive-thru, my exact order was “an ice cream cone and a medium chocolate shake”.

It’s actually become a game because each I get different sizes. I’m not sure if they know what a medium is – 21 oz. or 16 oz.

Apparently tonight the medium is 21 oz.

Mmmmm. Chocolate.

Men and women

Honeybun recently told me to wash out a water bottle. Sure, I’ll wash out the lip, but probably not fill it with soap to do the inside.

This is where men and women are different. If I’m cooking and I need some water for the recipe, I use the measuring cup, dry it out and put it back in the cupboard.

Honeybun would use the measuring cup, and put it in the dishwasher where it will be washed…with water.

I love being married.

Using rights to complain about no rights

I was perusing some blogs today and came up on Losers Lounge. In her side bar, the writer laments the loss of her Constitutional rights:

IN MEMORY OF: The Bill Of Rights (1791-2001) Slain By The Patriot Act. Rest In Pieces

Of course she voices her complaint by blogging and therefore using her rights of free speech and freedom of the press. She also uses a tyrant’s title as her pen name, “Tsarina”.

I guess she doesn’t see the irony of her writing.

Tsarina doesn’t understand the true threat. Bin Laden wrote an open letter containing his seven demands of the American People. Note the first:

(1) The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam.

And the consequences:

“If you fail to respond to all these conditions, then prepare for fight with the Islamic Nation.”

The threat of freedom comes from Islamic fascists. Not from our government where the Bill of Rights is still the standard of liberty in the world.

Useless headline of the day

Dolphin’s quarterback Jay Fiedler was benched at half-time in Saturday’s game against the Titans.

An AP headline tells us “Dolphins’ Fiedler Not Happy About Benching.” AP must have Captain Obvious writing headlines.

When in the history of sports has a player ever said, “I’m happy the coach benched me. Did you see how bad I was playing? I was just about to ask him to bench me when he gave me the news. Hopefully, I’ll be sitting the bench next week too.”
