Leftist celebrities and their money

The innocuous celebrity endorsement behind an ad for Tunnel to Towers, a truly laudatory charity, always irritates me. Often when I watch Tucker, I see advertisements for a truly worthy charity called the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. According to the commercials, it builds smart homes for horribly wounded military personal. [Read More]

Harry Styles and the death of maturity

The left’s effort to get men into women’s clothes (à la Harry Styles) is not just about gender; it’s also about stifling male maturity. Long ago, I had a friend who inadvertently married a heterosexual cross-dresser. She also found she’d married a man who couldn’t hold down a job, preferred [Read More]

I think this may be the best cat video ever

I’m procrastinating like mad so, of course, I’m watching cat videos — and I may have come across the best one of all. It all started nine years ago when a stray cat wandered up to someone’s door and made some demands. I like vocalizing animals, so I thought this [Read More]

This is not so much a post as it my working through my feeling that “there’s something here,” but I’m not quite sure what it [Read More]

RIP, Tim Conway

The death of Tim Conway marks the end of an era of wonderful American comedy that was based on simple things and aimed at a general audience. Tim Conway was truly one of the funniest men in my remembered lifetime. Or maybe it was just that magical alchemy on the [Read More]

Shazam! – A Movie Review, Sort Of

Shazam! as a superhero origin story is simply magical! No, really, I mean his origin is magical…like Harry Potter’s. He’s not the strange visitor from another planet, no one gave him a lantern powered ring, and he wasn’t bitten by a radioactive anything. Billy Batson is an orphan, who wants nothing [Read More]

Movie Review: “Destination Wedding” is a movie conservatives should see

I didn’t enjoy Destination Wedding just because of Keanu Reeves. I also liked it because it’s funny, dark, sweet, smart, and has sneaky conservativism. I’m not much for modern movies. The last ones I saw that I really liked were Darkest Hour and Paddington 2. My favorite channel is TCM [Read More]
