There has been negative commentary about the differences of the television series "Under The Dome" and the original novel by Stephen King. I never read the novel but I have no problems with 'adaptations' which stray from the written word. They are entirely different entities. However, now that King...

  Just a thought  . . .   Is it just me, or do Anthony Weiner and Geraldo Rivera both looks like dicks today?   New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admits to sending more sex pictures on his little cell phone, while Geraldo Rivera had one-too-many tequila shots. Check...

Curiosity took me to The First 48 on A&E last night, a show I don't normally watch.  I read mysteries and procedurals and wondered how this show would differ. The First 48 is ostensibly about the first 48 hours after a murder is commited as the most critical time to collect evidence and...

I have not read "Under The Dome", so I came to the television adaptation a virgin. I looked forward to it, as the premise and the come-ons took my interest. I enjoyed the first episode. The visual imposition of the 'dome' was very well done (fresh steak, anyone). Character reactions were realistic...

Photo: Paperback cover from the book's Wikipedia page. I read this one in a couple of hours, just after finishing Stephen King's Joyland.  They're both published by Hard Case Crime, and they both have covers of big-breasted, younger dames--covers of a scene you won't find in the story...

Walmart is finally struggling, but Robb Stark is dead.  If that's not the yin and yang of life, I don't know what is. My weekend started off with a great article explaining why Walmart is in trouble.  They are having staffing issues and losses in profit and people are not shopping their...

For some reason I researched the history of television this week. It's a fascinating tale of inventors and engineers testing and innovating for decades around the world to develop the medium that's evolved.  Talking with an older friend about it brought back memories for us.  His...

Having just watched Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Lincoln, and remembering him fondly from 3rd Rock from The Sun, I am interested in his call for writers for his new TeeVee  *show*. I am, it is true, not totally clear what it is he wants. And I am wary of the collaborative effort which seems a...

"'Roid Rage" is Real I thought I'd covered all the bases.  I stashed the cutlery in the garage and tuned the television to a leprechaun movie.  I now want to stab leprechauns. A concerned friend, who knows I live near Notre Dame asked how long it takes to get to the Golden Dome.  "...
