Hello, everybody! Here we are with column number 13, the luckiest number of all! Thanks for sticking with me. There have been good times and bad times. I wanted to give up a few times, and Iâm sure you all have as well. It has been a bumpy ride, but the world is better for it.
Greetings, whoever still reads this!
Reviews of notable new releases âŠ
Starring: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne
Although âNeighbors,â at face value, has all the charms of any Seth Rogen movie (drug humor, outrageous sexual situations and more drug humor) the first thing I noticed about this film was its heart and how real each character felt.
Me: Hi, Everybody!
Everybody else: Hi, Dr. Geek Girl!
14 Major League Baseball playoffs began with a bang on Tuesday night as the Oakland Aâs played the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The Royals beat the Aâs 9-8 in a 12-inning marathon that featured five lead changes and ended on a walk-off single to left field that barely missed the glove of the Aâs diving third baseman. It wasnât just the best game in the three-year history of the wild card play-in game, it was one of the most exciting postseason games ever.
Before Sept. 25 Thursday Night Football, Phil Simms decided to take a small stand and not say the name âRedskinsâ during the broadcast. Pretty simple really, but it let us know exactly where he stands. A Superbowl champ and respected broadcaster, conspicuously not saying it, and just replacing it with âWashingtonâ if required by the sentence. Truth be told, he slipped and said it in the fourth quarter. But I, for one, appreciate that he tried and that he made his stance public.
The Metabolic Studio IOU Theatre will be hosting another radio play this weekend. This time around, a local cast of voice actors will be telling the story of Death Valley Scotty.
All are invited to listen in on âDeath Valley Scotty,â written by Ruth Woodman in 1931 and originally airing in 1955 in the âDeath Valley Daysâ Series. This marks the fourth play in the IOU Theatre series, which began in June 2014 with readings of radio plays about the Owens Valley and surrounding area.
