Recent Post: Nymph()Maniac
The film starts out with a dark screen for way too long a time. I know it's suppose to be a heightened effect, but really it just gives you time to think about your day and how late it's going to be when this movie is over and because of that you'll probably be late for work the next day etc... When the screen finally fills with images, we eventually see a bloody woman lying prone on a nasty alley floor. A man soon stands over her and...READ MORE
Recent Post: Heaven is for Real
And then there's always the question of what will we be doing in Heaven? Praising and singing to God? How much can he or we take of that? And what about the passages that speak of a throne? If God and Jesus and Gabriel or Mary are seated on a throne, that sounds too much like an earthly kingdom, with politics and favors and judgement, certainly not my idea of heaven...READ MORE
Recent Post: Cake Competition Recap
If you read this blog frequently, you know I mention cake quite a lot. I'm a self-confessed cake-aholic, but I'm also a cake snob. I don't want just anything with icing on it, and in fact, it is crucial that the icing not be too sweet, too thick and preferably only on top.

“If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.” 1) Do they bring bread before the meal? 2) Is the bread good enough to be worth all the extra carb calories? 3) Is the bread warm? 4) Are you offered both room temperature butter and an olive oil dipping sauce? 5) Do they offer to bring you more bread!

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?
Will we one day pay $20 a pop?
Why don't we pay on a scale?
A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50. Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10. Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7. A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.
You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10 Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4 Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...
Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)
Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
