Things are so bad at the New York Daily News that advertising is taking over the front page, relegating its biased news coverage to the inside.
Meanwhile, I am gonna check out Nick Nolte in his new show portraying a former president. Sela Ward plays the former first lady. The first episode is rather bland, despite a lot of swearing. Clearly there’s a big effort to be hip and cool, too much so. It often forces the issue. Nolte is the best part.
One of the best Westerns ever made! The cast, the crew, the studios. All deserve credit for making it. It will live forever.
Regarding the remake, I have only seen the trailer. I have seen a few reviews, some laudatory, others dismissive. I wish Denzel, Pratt and company success. But I do think it is crazy to take on such an iconic film. We will see if it pays off.
Ah, good, old-fashioned Hollywood hysteria
There’s nothing quite like a bunch of politically correct actors spreading their personal brand of McCarthyism. But, hey, that’s why everyone tunes in to the Emmys, am I right? Awards ceremonies for the best entertainment should be full of serious political talk. Let’s smear the viewers!
The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.
Staff at Apple, led by Steve Jobs, devised the following copy for an ad. It’s a terrific commentary on unconventional thinking, one of my goals in life. I love being different. Doing things in new ways is my motto.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Bill Burr addresses issues with some common sense. He does swear a bit, and I honestly can’t remember if it was bleeped out or not.
