Bond, (Not) James Bond

Bond, James Bond. That simple and legendary line has only been uttered by six men on screen and is possibly the greatest one liner in cinematic history. James Bond is the iconic British secret agent and is the epitome of cool. James Bond is the one guy that all women want to be with and […]

A Tale of Two Concerts

When I was a kid my favorite band was Guns N’ Roses (GNR). I would argue still that their debut album, “Appetite for Destruction” is the greatest rock and roll album ever made; even better than Led Zeppelin IV. The trials and tribulations of the volatile band are well known and their break ups and […]


Not that this is Earth shattering news but we are getting stupider as a culture and as a people. I am firmly convinced that as great as technology is, it has made human beings lazy and stupid when it thinks it’s making us smarter. I fear for the younger generations who will only know social […]

Sarah Palin Please Shut Up!

I hate writing or talking about religion and politics in general and especially in a public forum like my website. However, I woke up this morning, was reading the news on my blackberry and came across the dreaded political ticker on CNN. The ticker loves to mention Sarah Palin constantly and essentially the stupid things […]

A Bunch of Random Stuff

I feel as if there are a lot of things going on right now that I want to write about but nothing in particular. Therefore, I will just be mentioning totally random bits about lots of different things that are or have been on my mind in the last few days. From liberation in Egypt […]

Brazilian Great Ronaldo Retires

Brazilian striker Ronaldo Luis Nazário de Lima better known simply as Ronaldo is retiring from global football or soccer today. He is widely regarded as one of the top players of all time and in my view he is one of the 4-5 best players ever. The three time FIFA World Player of the Year […]

Indian Wells Masters Tennis

I am a huge tennis fan and have always watched the Indian Wells Masters tournament since I can remember. However, I never really knew where it was except that it was somewhere in California. So last year when I came out to Arizona I was looking at a map to see what was around. I […]
