Celebrating Aria Leigh

My little girl is so grown up. Earlier today, we celebrated Aria’s Christening and it was a truly special event. Athough every day I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have such a loving family around me – with my beautiful wife Andrea (Andi) and two adorable children, Colin and Aria – it’s…

It All Goes Back to Styx

I wanted to drop everyone a quick post to let you know how things are going in Colin’s life. My little boy is currently enjoying the sunset days of terrible twos and is about to cross that magic threshold into the ripe old age of 3. With his birthday on fast approach – May 5th,…

Someone Get Me An NCAA Bracket

In reading my 1999 review of Dark City, I happened upon the following passage (about scribe David Goyer):  “Someone give this guy the next Batman, and marvel at the fiery phoenix risen from the ashes.” Someone was listening. Goyer wrote last year’s Batman Begins – one of my favorite flicks of 2005 and the best Batman…

Dark City – film review

Reviewed October 1, 1999 It holds its secrets well. Bathed in perpetual night, the sprawling metropolis spirals inward and outward, every which way, its labyrinthine dark alleyways concealing nightmarish enigmas wrapped in curious conundrums. Its superstructures reach infinitely skyward; into the darkened abyss, the dense sea of inky blackness; like skeletal hands weathered by time,…

Three Kings – film review

Reviewed October 5, 1999 The true casualty of war is that while it wages barbaric assaults upon human life and societal structures, it exists as reasonably sound business sense. The Twentieth Century, which has witnessed the birth of superpowers who in turn have fathered their own bundle of joy, the Military Industrial Complex, has provided…

Homerisms

 “Boy, when Marge first told me she was going to the Police Academy, I thought it’d be fun and exciting, you know, like the movie Spaceballs. But instead, it’s been painful and disturbing, like the movie Police Academy.” I figured I’d sprinkle these in every once in awhile. Just random Homer quotes that always make…

PS3 – Not For Me

Looks like I made the right decision. With knowledge of 3 new systems coming down the pipeline – Microsoft’s XBox 360, Sony’s Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Revolution – I had to choose one. Sony – which promised a lot at last year’s E3 conference (including a system launch in Spring 2006) finally blinked under…

24: Day 5 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Over the past few weeks, I have written extensively on the many reasons why I feel this season is 24’s absolute best. One or two good episodes and it’s easy to dismiss it as hyperbole. You sit and await the inevitable moment when the house of cards you were just admiring catches a gust and topples…

360 Degrees of Seperation… No More!!!

After three and a half months of tireless searching, the Holy Grail has been located. Last Sunday, as I wandered through the morning paper, I spied a peculiar site. Gazing at the cover of the Circuit City circular, I spotted the above image. For those in the know, the XBox 360 has been in high…

Moving Host

Hey, Sean here again. I am moving Ed’s domain to my new hosting provider, so there may be a time when you won’t see the blog over the next 24-48 hours. You might want to hold off on commenting on any postings until you see this entry updated that the move is complete. Thanks for…
