My review of Family Guy’s Blue Harvest, it’s peon to the original Star Wars movie is available at here.

The sound track is first rate, the adaption is as true as it can get while giving each Star Wars character a specific twist particular to the family guy character that plays it. A sequel is planned so this won’t be the last of it.

But I’m a Cheerleader! : Amazon Review

My review of the 1999 film But I’m a Cheerleader staring Natasha Lyonne is available at here.

To say that this film is the ultimate expression of the left’s stereotype of all things pertaining to Christians, Christianity, and their attitudes to gays is the understatement of the year. It has some slapstick and some laugh out loud moments but if you are a fan of this blog you likely won’t care for it.

It’s 85 minutes you’ll never get back.

Update: Robert Stacy kindly links and provides the illustration I didn’t. If you are coming from there and want to hear about something worth reading I suggest you check out Escape From Hell. My post on it is here, my Amazon review here, and a little excerpt follows from a post on the 2nd amendment.

“And that one?” I pointed to a man up to his chin in boiling blood. He was screaming in agony so his face was distorted, but he looked Oriental.

“New one,” Billy said. “Seung, something like that. Went out and shot a bunch of people in the college he was at. Allen, it puzzles me that a man can shoot thirty-two full-grown men and women before the sheriff’s men gun him down. You’re more his time, maybe you can tell me. Why didn’t someone just shoot the son of a bitch?”

I scratched my head. Billy’s viewpoint seemed skewed, alien.

“Five of ‘em where teachers,” Billy said. “They had to protect their kids. How could they now be armed? It’s as if someone has been taking away their guns.”

A great book, you should grab it with Inferno the first in the series.

Update: Thanks to the old grouch for catching a typo in the review. Spell check can’t catch everything.

My Amazon Vine review of Post-it(R) Super Sticky Removable Color Coding Labels, 1 x 2.6 Inches Assorted Neon, Laser, 450 labels per pack (2700-P) , the review Everybody is dying for…Is available at here.

Why on earth am I reviewing Labels? Because I got them through Amazon vine since I needed labels and on the vine program you have to review 75% of the items you get.

You won’t notice anything earth shattering about these things but they work as advertised, they’re LABELS what do you expect?

Yesterday I was talking with my son about the way he thinks about various things.

When I asked what his perception of me was, he said God had blessed me with mindless optimism and naivete.

A great example of this happened yesterday. I already commented on Stacy’s big announcement when it occurred to me that this is exactly the best time for people to mend fences. If I was in a dispute with someone on another matter and someone had a positive announcement in that vein I would send polite congratulations.

It’s that type of civility that is the first step to making things right. God constantly gives this kind of small blessing to man, a simple way to get back into his good graces by (particularly at Christmastime) to show some small kindness to his fellow man.

So I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I checked Charles blog to see if he had reacted to RSM’s announcement.

Instead, of course there was an attempt to portray him as a Nazi.

I was very disappointed but anyone with sense would have known better (that’s just about everyone else).

You may laugh but that same optimistic view of man is the one God maintains of us. The willingness to forgive and to give yet another chance to take the right path.

May we all have a little of that at Christmas time and enough to keep us the rest of the year as well.
