What the?!?!?!? Yes, pop culture filtered by yours truly. A waste of time? The pulse of contemporary culture? Nope, just weekly rant and reflection about the sites and sounds that have stimulated my brain for good or bad, and now regurgitated for your reading pleasure.
FILM // I MUST BE GETTING OLD
Sunday I went with a couple of folks from church to see the highly anticipated new release of Jamie Kennedy’s, Kickin’ It Old Skool. And while there were a few good 80’s flashbacks and one incredibly inappropriate BUT HILARIOUS scene that shall remain nameless, this was a little over the top even for me. Not nearly on the level of such masterpieces – yes, I said masterpieces – of the like-genre movies like Wedding Crashers or Dodge Ball, add it to your Netflix Cue and watch is as background stimulation while you are writing your next sermon . . . on second thought, that could turn out badly.

TV // FAREWELL ADDISON?
Last night on the Grey’s Anatomy two-hour extravaganza, they test piloted a spin-off for Addison [More]. Not only because it would be a beautiful cast to watch, but the ensemble was pretty cool, talented, likable, etc. Loved seeing Amy Brennemen of Judging Amy back on something as she is a great actress, Tim Daly was charming as the cute, hippy alternative med guy, Taye Diggs is good looking man and well Kate Walsh – stunning as always – glad she is getting away from that Karev character. My only questions: "A office full of California medical professionals . . . where are the Asian Americans? Everyone else is kind of playing against stereotype – except for the surfer dude – so I know, Asian American chaplain . . . . hmmmmmmm.
MUSIC // GUILTY PLEASURE
Wham! May be a flashback, but oh yeah baby, you know you liked them when they were the thing. I admit, I saw them in concert way bay in ’87 with opening act, Katrina and the Waves, at Oakland Coliseum. And boy did I look good . . . puffy white jacket, fluorescent t-shirt and white dock shoes, no socks of course. To help bring back the memories here are a few YouTube Links: Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Careless Whisper and my personal favorite, Wham Rap. [My Music on LastFM]
BLOG O’ THE WEEK // PA BABY!
Let me introduce you to Ladyburg. I will take full credit for getting her addicted to this whole blogging thing. If you know her, she is a wonderful person, pastor and child o’ God. Well worth subscribing to as she also gives some great insights around work, call, family, etc. Her only downfall is that she and MisterBurg have not yet come to their sense and moved to the great Republic of San Francisco. They like these things called "seasons" and this stuff they call "snow" . . . whatever. [My Blog Roll]
