JAWS

Monday, Jun, 22 2015


How can it be?

How can "JAWS" be 40 years ago?

But alas, we're all getting older by the day. And indeed, it was the summer of 1975.

40 years ago this past weekend, the movie that changed everything for summer blockbusters was released.

Critics disliked it.
Too violent.
Remember, this was before there was even a PG-13 rating in the system.

Now, it's a classic.
We'll talk about some quirky JAWS facts when we chat about the movie on the Monday PhilCast.

Hey South Carolina, do the right thing

Friday, Jun, 19 2015

Take it down.

While the American Flag and a state flag over their capitol have been lowered to half-staff in honor of the shooting victims, the confederate is still on high.

Why?
Because they say it can not be lowered since there is no pulley system on it.

Really.

How about taking it down instead? For good.

I'll discuss the flag and one single guy in the entire shooting story that hasn't got much attention, but did something rather incredible there Wednesday night after the shots rang out.

Wal-Mart here I come.

Spaghetti eating

Tuesday, Jun, 16 2015


This is one of the photos that was included in the 1942 Life Magazine article about how to properly eat spaghetti.

Now, THIS Italian guy was very interested in what the magazine thought was the 'right' way to eat pasta.

I'll go over the article and discuss pasta technique as part of the Tuesday PhilCast.
