'Texas BBQ' A mix tape by Chip Kinney
I have been tinkering around with my MySpace page. And I’m starting to see why folks can get addicted to cultivating their page. Perhaps I’m not the old curmudgeon that Weather Dave tells me that I am. Hell, I’m over 40 and I send and receive text messages frequently. If that’s not proof, then I don’t know what is.
While working on my little MySpace pages, I decided to put up a photo. Brad sent me an excellent one of record producing legend, Phil Spector.
He kind of looks like one of the characters from the Hair Bear Bunch cartoon from the 60’s.
I’ve decided that at the first of every month, I’m going to change my picture on MySpace. If you have any photos I can use, by all means, send them to me. firstname.lastname@example.org And visit my page at MySpace.
I have one in mind already for the month of March, but the rest of the year is up in the air.
As you may have read before, I love Battlestar Galactica on the Sci-Fi Channel. Although I don’t really find Number Six (Tricia Helfer) as appealing as the Asian Cylon (Grace Park) or even Madame President (Mary McDonnell), I may just have to check out what she looks like without her clothing. Honestly, she doesn’t wear that much on the show. So I’m wondering what my imagination is leaving out and why it doesn’t really care.
Battlestar Galactica can be found on the Sci-Fi Channel Sunday nights at 10 EST. If you choose to start watching, you should really begin with the mini-series and start up with the seasons that are already out on DVD. You will not be sorry because BSG has it all! Sure, the sci-fi geeks dig it… But it’s for anyone who loves and craves excellent action-dramas.
If you love some 24, you will truly enjoy Battlestar Galactica. Even TV Guide proclaims that it is “one of the best dramas on television”.
After having the movie Black Dahlia for a week, I finally found some time to watch it. I must say that although the film didn’t grab me with its highly speculative storyline, there were some damn fine film work from director Brian De Palma. The man knows how to compose a great extended shot.
I gave the film 3 out of 5 stars on Netflix because of the work of Brian De Palma. The storyline would have only gotten 2 out of 5 stars. It just didn’t seem as compelling as the REAL story itself. Black Dahlia was a bit of a let down.
Next and warming up in my DVD player, I have Flyboys. The film is based on American fliers (before we joined the fight) that helped out the French (as usual) when they were dragged into WWI.
I’m not predicting a great film by any means, but from what I’ve seen concerning the aerial fight sequences, the computer graphics look awesome, dude!
I still have the Kevin Costner flick The Guardian and some Law & Order season one. If you’d like a Netflix friend, add me, baby! email@example.com
