My Love for Horror and Disturbing Films

Hey there.  I don't watch as many movies as I would like to.  Don't get me wrong, I do watch plenty of movies, but rarely do I come across that gem that makes me go, whoa.  Movies like Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door or 3 Extremes are movies that I not only enjoy watching but highly recommend that people watch them.  These are not films that one would describe as "good".  I would describe them as "wow" or "damn".  A movie that can stir inner emotions is definitely one that is worth the time to check out.  And with that, I came across a list of "disturbing" movies that I definitely want to check out this year.  The quick synopsis are all from

I Love My DVR

Thanks for the post from Barney Crosby

I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for my DVR. This is the one electronic device that I have in my home that I actually know how to operate. I use it on a daily basis and I am not ashamed to say that when my old one broke, I had a new one within one day. I just cannot be without it. While my cable tv always has great shows on, I work crazy hours at the local hospital. There are many times that I cannot watch TV until late at night or early in the morning. Thanks to my DVR, I can still see all of my favorite shows like CSI, 16 and Pregnant, and Desperate Housewives. All I have to do is make sure that I set the device to record them while I am gone. Then when I do get to actually sit down, all of my faves are there waiting. This thing has completely changed how I watch TV and I will never be without one as long as I can help it.

What a Way to Kick Off the 2010-2011 NFL Playoffs

Hey there.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  For all non football fans out there, this Saturday was the beginning of the NFL playoffs.  Where games matter more and the losses stay with you until next year.  This Saturday's lineup included the Seattle Seahawks vs. the New Orleans Saints followed by The Indianapolis Colts vs. the New York Jets.  Being a fan, you'd figure that the Saints will roll over the 'Hawks, since the 'Hawks  being the only team in history to enter the playoffs with a record below .500.  Man.. that was not the case.

Simply put, the game was freakin' awesome.  Everything you want in a football game.  High scoring, hard impact, 4th qtr drama and it was all capped off by this killer run by Marshawn Lynch that has everyone who watched it say, "WOW!". To everyone's surprise, the "lowly" Seahawks came up and defeated the defending Super Bowl champs.  Brees had his chance to bring the team back but the unsuccessful onside kick sealed their fate.  If you missed this game, you MUST watch it when the NFL Network replays it sometime this week.

The Colts vs the Jets game was just as good.  The poster boy on NFL QBs, Peyton Manning, is set off to make another run to the Super Bowl against the loudmouth Jets.  Classic stuff.  And after what seemed to be the game winning 50 yard field goal by K Adam "I don't miss big kicks in play off games" Vinitieri, Jets QB Mark Sanchez came up big by setting his team up for an easy field goal for the win.  All in all, an awesome set of games to usher in the playoffs!

Sunday morning featured the Kansas City Chiefs vs the Baltimore Ravens.  I'll admit that I was rooting for the Chief's to lose.  In my opinion, Oakland should have been in their place, but the Raiders screwed up their chance to represent the AFC West.  Anyways, The Ravens just destroyed the Chiefs, and just to throw salt into the wound of Oakland fans everywhere... the dreaded "tuck rule" made an appearance in the game.  Bitter or not, that tuck rule is a stupid rule and it should be changed or completely scratched out of the NFL rule book.  I'm just saying.

The afternoon game featured the game of the weekend, The Green Bay Packers vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.  The felon turned savior, Michael Vick vs back up to Mr. Favre turned uprising star, Aaron Rodgers.  This game had classic written all over it and even though it wasn't a high scoring game like the Seahawks/Saints game, this one was still decided in the 4th qtr in the final minute of the game.  QB Vick had the Eagles at the 27 yard line with seconds to go and he was looking for the win when his pass was intercepted in the end zone.  Awesome, awesome game.

In all honesty, I don't remember a better Wild Card weekend in the NFL.  The games were exciting (except the Chief/Ravens game) and they all had their big play moments.  If you are an NFL fan you have to be happy with the games this weekend.  And wow... I'm still thinking about that Marshawn Lynch run!  Here's a video of the play that I found online.  The run looked so much like it came from a video game that someone decided to add Tecmo Super Bowl sounds to it!  Freakin' awesome!  I know for a fact that all football fans everywhere simultaneously said, "UUUHHHH!  GET OFF ME!!!!" at the .13 second mark of this video.  If you didn't, you are not a fan.  lol  Enjoy.  Later!

The Immaculate Conception

A woman takes her 16 year old daughter to the doctor to get her checked out.

"Ok, Mrs. Smith.  What seems to be the problem.", the doctor asks.

"It's my daughter, Morgan!  We don't know what's wrong with her.  She keeps getting these weird cravings, she's beginning to put on weight and she's been feeling extremely nauseous most mornings.  Please help doctor."

The doctor walks over to Morgan and begins to examine her.  After a few minutes of poking and prodding, the doctor turns to the mother and says, "Mrs. Smith.  Your daughter is about 4 months pregnant."

The mother, astounded says, "Pregnant!  How can that be?  She's never been left alone with a man!  Isn't that right, dear?"

Morgan looks at her mother and responds, "That's right mom!  I've never even kissed a man before!"

Upon hearing this, the doctor walked over to the window and began to stare out.  After about 5 minutes of silence, the mother asks the doctor, "Is something the matter, doctor?"

To which the doctor replied, "No, not really.  But, the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and three wise men came over the hill.  I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it this time!"

Auburn Takes on Oregon

Contribution by Prince Raymond

If you love college football than you are probably looking forward to the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game that is coming up in a few weeks. The Auburn Tigers are taking on the Oregon ducks and it should turn out to be an offensive showcase. Both of these teams have some of the highest scoring offenses in all of college football. They also both have some of the most dynamic athletes. Cam Newton is the Heisman Trophy winner and promises to always put a show and put up points on the board. LaMichael James for Oregon is also the top running back in the country and should prove a tough test for Auburn's defense.

I got my tickets to go to this game weeks ago and decided to take my friend George. We both said goodbye to our wives, switched on our home alarm systems from ALL HOME SECURITY, packed out bags and boarded the plane for sunny Glendale Arizona got the national championship. The game should be really exciting because it is the premiere game of the college football season. All of the hype and trash talk leads up to this point. This game will decide the best team in college football and George and I will be there to see who wins it!

Glendale Arizona should be a perfect place to host a national championship because the weather should be perfect and the city of Glendale has something to offer almost anyone.
