The Godfather Movies

I neglected my chores this afternoon to watch the Godfather I & Godfather II movies. I’ve seen both of these movies, many many times, but since they are on my list of top 10 movies of all time, I couldn’t resist watching again. I know these movies are filled with violent and illegal acts, but at their core, these movies are about loyalty, friendship and love of family. I could go on and on about these movies, but I’ll just leave you with a few of my favorite quotes: Don Corleone: “Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It […]

Boy Meets Boy

I first read about Boy Meets Boy at Mirandala.org. Now after reading the write up about the show in Newsweek, it sound downright cruel. Basically, Boy Meets Boy is the gay version of The Bachelor/The Bachelorette. However, there is a twist in that not all of the men competing are gay. In the mix are a few straight men who get the chance to win $25K if the “the leading man” picks them. However, “the leading man” isn’t told that some of the men aren’t gay until halfway through the season. Considering that he’s there to find “real love” (if […]

Single In The City

Apparently there are real women in New York who live like the women on Sex In The City. This I learnt while watching marathon showing of first season of: Single In The City 1 this past Thursday. Now I’m so hooked. It’s sort of sad really, as quite a few of the women made a complete fool out of themselves in season 1. Thinking season 2 will be no different. Particularly when there are 3 single women for every single man in New York. Thank goodness I don’t live there. In any event, can’t wait for season 2 to begin […]

Whale Rider & The Italian Job

Earlier today, I saw two movies. One moved me to tears; the other helped me forget those tears for a few hours. The first movie I saw was Whale Rider. It’s a story about an 11 year old girl (Pai) who is destined to become the Chief of her small fishing community in New Zealand. However, her grandfather (Koro) is too stubborn to see this as he does not want to break with tradition. In their culture, only males can be (have been) Chiefs. When Koro’s own son looses his wife and son (Pai’s twin brother) at birth, he tells […]

Barry White

It’s almost too shocking to believe, but Barry White died earlier today. I knew he had health problems, but I thought he was getting better. Plus, he was only 58 years young. Oh well. Death comes to us all eventually, but sometimes I think it’s so true, only the good die young. May his soul rest in peace. I myself, will always remember his deep sexy voice, singing: Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe.
