Sep 25th 2010 2:36PM Last time I said that the Butterfly house I said that it looked like a trailer park set upon the rocks. It is much nicer now but still tiny. That other house you link to, however, that's a real house with everything you could want to live there all year round, even a home theater. Nice!
Aug 25th 2010 10:11PM Oh yeah! Should I ever win the lottery I would buy this. Leisurely visit all the great places in the US and Canada without subjecting oneself to the indignities of airline flights. At the same time this seems like it could be parked almost anywhere as opposed to those megabus sized monsters that I sometimes see.
Jun 21st 2010 12:20AM I thought that you were going to leave out Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck). It may have been in the sixties but that scene where the Old black man tells Finch's daughter to stand up because her father is passing, has to define the proudest any kid can be about his/her father even if she didn't understand it at the time.
It may be TV but in the seventies, I thought that Mike Brady of the Brady Bunch was perfect (so what if the actor, Robert Reed, was not his character). Here's a man that was smart, hard working, loving and wise. He took in a woman's kids and treated them like his own. That's a father and a true man!
Check out the 1969 song "Color Him Father" by the Winstons about a similar man. The song has an unexpected ending, appropriate to today's discussion. You don't find songs like that anymore.

May 24th 2010 7:22PM "The script has such fun subverting the treasured details of the Nativity"
Can you imagine the same thing being said about any other religion? Is there a need to subvert Christianity? Hasn't it been done enough?
Do the makers of this movie think of themselves as brave?
The filmmakers are inane and unoriginal but grasping for some credibility and gravitas. The only way they know of getting that is by introducing religion into their movie and claiming seriousness by association, even in a comedy.
They are not brave either. Ridiculing people's beliefs does not make you brave when the people are not barbarians who will try to behead you for putting ink on paper or pin a hateful message to your body with knife as they did to Theo Van Gogh.

Apr 22nd 2010 11:42PM You forgot "The Long Kiss Goodnight" and "Point of No Return". Like "The Losers", the "Bourne" movies and so many others except for "True Lies", those were movies were the secret agency were the bad guys. In fact, those movies made Abe Rosenthal of the New York Times ask what kind of cynicism was going through Hollywood. (Rosenthal was one the last columnist for the Times that actually thought about what was best for the country not for any particular party).
Rosenthal asked if any of the moviemakers thought about the distrust towards their country that were sowing. Did they really believe in the stories that they so realistically portrayed? If so how could they even stand to live in a country that they believed was capable of mass murdering its citizens? That same question applies to all the 9/11 conspiracy believers.
"True Lies" was the last film to portray, albeit comedically, the real world enemies that this country faces. "The Siege" came soon after and portrayed a country were a couple of bus bombings would lead to a military takeover. Then came 9/11. Oddly, after we were attacked by exactly the kind of enemies portayed in "True Lies", we've gotten movie after movie where it is our government that is the bad guy. Why? How?
Thank God Hollywood was different during WWII.
Mar 31st 2010 10:48PM OK for the next update I want USB hosting.
I really would like to take a USB card reader, plug and SD card from my "real" camera do a quick adjust on PicSay then email it.
Also, digital sound out on the USB port would also be nice.
I'm greedy that way.

My Amazon app works fine.
Mar 27th 2010 2:54PM I prefer to celebrate HUman achievement instead.
Mar 21st 2010 10:48PM A Spanish Character? Well, it's about time! if you watched the series, you would have thought that all of the Caribbean was British. Those "Spanish" doubloons apparently came from a dead civilization as old as Rome.
In just about every Hollywood film, the Spaniards are the bad guys. I guess that protecting their money was seen as a bad thing by the Anglo Saxons. Funny thing, is that the sailor that the British call "Sir" Francis Drake is referred to as the "Pirate" Drake in all of the Spanish Caribbean.
