American Anarchist – movie review

A Word of Caution to Today’s Anarchists I recently watched the Netflix documentary American Anarchist. It was a fascinating conversation with author William Powell about his book, The Anarchist Cookbook. This book was first published in 1971 by the then-young activist. According to his own words, he was angry and alienated. He compiled the book originally to put the means to fight back in the hands of common people rather than just big government, military and violent activists. It is evident through the film that Powell has remorse for writing the book. He later attempted to have the book...

A nice end to a bad phone call

Be Nice = Get Nice I received a phone call from a collection agency saying I owed $700+ on my health insurance from back in 2016. Sure that it was a mistake, I told the gentleman (I use the term only out of politeness) that it was a mistake and that I have never missed a premium payment. I am sure he is used to dealing with deadbeats (I use the term only out of rudeness) all day and that he gets a ton of excuses and very little in the way of payment. He proceeded to cop a...

Spider-Man Brings it Home

Best Peter Parker Yet I finally saw Spider-Man: Homecoming and I think they’ve almost got it with the wall crawler. Let me say that it really bugs me when they change the actors playing a superhero. The number of spideys annoys me as much as the number of Hulks. But, just like the green Goliath, I think they finally got it right. Yes, Tom Holland is a bit goofy at times but he is the closest I have seen to the actual comic book version. He is definitely the Spider-Man worthy of banking the franchise on. When I saw...

The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football

Talk about a page turner! The System: The Glory and Scandal of Big-Time College Football by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian is just that. If you have any interest in college football, this is a must-read. Even if you only have a passing interest in the game, the insights Benedict and Keteyian bring are fascinating. It reads a bit choppy at times, jumping from the story of Mike Leach, to a rape on campus and then to the secret tools recruiters use. After a few chapters however, you understand why the authors move around and it starts to make sense. Flow aside,...

Kong: Dull Island

Worst Summer Blockbuster Season Ever I didn’t expect much from Kong: Skull Island after that abomination that was the last one. (The Jack Black one – it was SOOOO bad I don’t even want to link to it.) I have to admit this one is better, but that doesn’t mean it is a good film. The fact that I read this was the 10th highest grossing film of 2017 is testament either to how bad a year it was for film or how easily the public is suckered into watching garbage. It plays like an 80’s action film without Stallone,...
