The Five Coolest Guys 1990-2010

The Five Coolest Guys 1990-2010
  This ran last year.  If it were to be republished, we could probably add Steve McGarrett (the 2.0 version) to this list. Girls love him, and guys want to be him.  Australian Alex O’ Laughlin has brought back the cool TV cop. Entertainment Weekly Magazine just came out with it’s list of the 100... Read more »

A Day in the Life of Internet Radio

A Day in the Life of Internet Radio
Master control at Zecom radio Rolling Stone magazine writer Jon Landau left a concert in Massachusetts back in the mid seventies and famously proclaimed, “I’ve seen the future of rock and roll, and it’s name is Bruce Springsteen!”  Well, now that “The Boss” is very mainstream, I’m here to update that and state emphatically that...

Shameless Plug - Weekend Sports Report

The Grobber with Vin Scully When someone at the bank wishes me a nice weekend, I have to chuckle and respond, “A weekend, what’s that?” That’s because I spend every Saturday trading barbs and jibes with legendary sportscaster Les Grobstein. If you are a sports radio fan in Chicago (or are a Chicagoan in exile)... Read more »

The 2010 World Series of Poker - It's All in the Cards

The 2010 World Series of Poker - It's All in the Cards
Last night I watched a little reality television.  At least what I consider reality, not the made for TV bachelor romps, or a bunch of New Jersey wannabe celebs prancing around like peacocks in front of the cameras.  No, I’m talking about the 2010 “World Series of Poker” that took place last month, but premiered...

Tuesday Afternoon Special

Tuesday Afternoon Special
This past weekend has been a veritable buffet of entertainment – a smorgasbord of movies, television, music, books, and even a trip to the theater for yours truly. Jim Ortlieb (L) of the Chicago cast of “Billy Elliot” chats with Steve Leventhal (R) after a performance of the hit musical. We’ll start with late last... Read more »

DVD Review - Whip It

This was a fun two-hour escape from reality.  A nice effort from Drew Barrymore, in her directorial debut.  Unlike Jennifer Aniston, my favorite movie punching bag, she does have some skills as a director, and in her limited role in this movie.  If you want to see her act, there are quite a few other...

The Newseum - Not Just for News Junkies

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go see the Newseum in its two-year old new home at Pennsylvania and Sixth Avenue in Washington, DC, a few short blocks from the White House.  Who knew the Blackhawks would be in the Stanley Cup finals when we booked our trip.  At least, I got back...

Future Shock - the "Flash Forward" Finale

A quick trip to TiVo land this morning to watch the season, and presumably series ending for FF. In the magic world of television, especially when hatched from the same folks who brought you Disneyland and Toy Story – all things come true.  Our unsuspecting or perhaps expecting characters are seeing all their FF’s come...

At The End Of The Day..... a "24" blog

More LOST reaction

And the comments keep pouring in…The Marquee Blog on CNN  “So – that was a real curveball, those last five minutes. A lot of it was very fitting, it definitely took us on an emotional journey, and there were so many moments that moved me, and really worked. But, those last five minutes will certainly...
