Kitsch Definition

'Inferno' doesn't generate much heat Part of the draw of these movies is that they dont create beauty but instead borrow the emotions of the beauty they depict. (This more or less is one definition of kitsch courtesy of the philosopher Tomas Kulka.) That makes the movies easy to watch and easy to forget. As important their postcard beauty and rented emotions also attenuate some of the less palatable aspects of their conspiracy theories. Theres pleasure in watching characters solve puzzles…

Man, it's not like I even *watched* Friday Night Lights...John Carter was a great movie! And I'm not just saying that because I loved the books either. He definitely had something to do with it.

These bites used to be the hottest appetizer of the 70′s and are way overdue for a comeback.  Possibly named after Norman warriors who terrorized southern England, these little treats are ugly as sin but oh so delicious.  They will be hoovered up in a minute so definitely have some extra floating around.  The toothpicks, while kitsch, also make them an extremely convenient hors d’oeuvres.  Enjoy! INGREDIENTS 20 medjool dates (or any large date), pitted 1 small log of fresh chevre 10 strips…

Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you - even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. - Neil Gaiman, American Gods

I finally finished Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit this late afternoon. Good movie! Definitely worth a watch. Next flick on the agenda is Lone Survivor with Mark Walburg. I started watching the opening credits and was immediately locked in. I'm already tensed up. #redboxNight
