    What are you watching?

    Years back, I underrated Justin Timberlake until I saw him as a host and musical guest on SNL. Now, he’s one of my favorite performers. I’m experiencing a similar change of heart regarding Harry Stiles. Stiles had been fantastic on tonight’s episode. His monologue was laugh out loud funny...

    What are you watching?

    I watched Gravity Falls with my kids. It’s well written and entertaining for adults as well as kids. Legitimately very funny.

    The movie you just watched

    We watched Hobbs and Shaw last night. It was about what I expected. Lots of overcooked chase scenes and fight scenes. The plot is ridiculous, even by action movie standards. But still entertaining. The Rock and Statham are great. I’ll see almost anything with either of them in it. But...

    Master Debaters

    This. The real payoff line was “...then we’ve got competing perspectives on truth...” As ridiculous as it is, it’s not surprising. In fact, it’s the inevitable endgame of post-modern Leftism. And it’s a path to destruction.

    What are you listening to?

    I’ve had this great Cody Jinks song stuck in my head all week:

    What are you listening to?

    This is my new jam: Tom Morello (formerly of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave) collaborating with Austin’s own Gary Clark, Jr. This sounds like something I would have heard walking into Antone’s in the mid-1990s from acts like Arc Angels, Ian Moore, or Storyville (with some electronic...

    The Resistance strikes again

    Unsurprisingly, the period preceding and including the Civil War was remarkably polarized. Even before the slavery issue came to a head, you had Calhoun and the South Carolinians threatening nullification and secession as early as the 1830s (over tariffs). And when slavery came to the...

    The movie you just watched

    I finally got around to watching The Sisters Brothers on the way home from a work trip last week. It’s a Western starring Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly as the titular brothers, killers hired by co-star Rutger Hauer to pursue co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed. As Westerns go, it’s...

    The squid rain pushed my suspension of disbelief farther than is comfortable. What the hell is that about?

    What are you watching?

    What do you mean? I liked the film, so the show threw me a little at first. The only correlation I noticed between the film and the show was the scene they were watching on TV where the heroes all had place cards at some table.
