Get Social

In the words of Bob & Tom Show character Donnie Baker..."I'll say it right to your face"...Tom Cruise is my favorite actor. He gets no love from Hollywood or the millions of award shows that they like to throw themselves. Everyone who acts WITH him seems to grab the awards. He's just Tom and he makes bad ass movies and I can't wait to see Jack Reacher 2 coming out this Friday, Oct. 21st. By the way...does the guy age at all? Regardless of how one may feel about his personal life it has to be noted that he is a great actor and a true movie star. Let's face it...there aren't too many real movie stars anymore. When you think of this guy's movie catalog it's pretty mind blowing. I don't care what people think...Tommy is my favorite and dang if Jack Reacher 2 doesn't look like a kick ass movie!

Dang!  What a great album.  I remember getting the cassette tape as a birthday present.  It then took a rather perminant spot in the car.  So many great songs.  Fun to blast and cruise to.  Remember Dr. Feelgood!

I love gymnastics.  When I was very young I remember watching an American gymnast named Tracee Talavera.  I watched her tumble across the blue floor on the television.  I was mesmerized.  I can still remember turning around from the T.V. and looking at my parents and saying, or rather screaming,  "I want to do that!".  I had played every sport you could think of before I discovered gymnastics and I enjoyed them all but this, this was different. This sport spoke to me and nothing was going to stop me from doing it.  Gymnastics took over my life (and the lives of my poor parents) and I loved it.  After hundreds of leotards, bumps, rips, bruises, tears, smiles, flips, ribbons and miles traveled...it was time to roll up the Mary Lou Retton posters that covered my bedroom wall and hang up my hat.  I had one too many bruises and missed one too many social events.  I was never going to The Olympics, I think I knew that all along but gymnastics taught me discipline, teamwork and individual drive. Even though I missed out on many social, school and family events I wouldn't change one thing.  It also gave me some of the best friends of my life, friends that I still hang out with today.  Every four years when the Olympics come around I get to re-live that feeling that I had so long ago.  I can hear what's in their heads, I know what they're thinking, how they feel.  I can smell the chalk on their hands, feel their years of aches and pains, the nerves and the joy.  I get to remember what it felt like to strive for perfection with no fear at such a young age.  This year, our team is going to bring it all home, again.  I will be right there watching and cheering them on the whole time.  Go USA!!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the history behind how our great nation came to be.  I'm grateful for everyday and even though so many are not...I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.  Happy 4th of July!!

Lemmy?  David Bowie?  Natalie Cole and now Glenn Frey?  It's too much to bare.  For me...Glenn Frey is the most painful.  It's no secret that Van Halen is my favorite band but I will say it anytime, anyday to anyone that The Eagles put on the best live show I've ever seen and they may just be the greatest band of all time.   Today I feel more blessed than ever to have been able to see them live.  The talent in The Eagles is almost overwhelming.  There are so many songs to listen too as we mourn but this one seems to bring the tears to my eyes.  It demonstrats the most amazing vocal harmonies and the simple music that manages to make you tap your feet.  RIP Glenn Frey.

It's time.  The moment so many fans have been waiting for is here.  It expected to be the biggest movie of all time. Star Wars is one of those epic things where there really are no such thing as band wagoners.  You're either a fan or your not.  There is just A LOT of fans.  For those who are not fans and don't plan on being a part of this historic cinema event...I promise...you are missing out.  This is going to be incredible.

One of my favorite bands of the 80's (and there are many) is RATT.  A little KISS, a little CRUE and a little Eddie all rolled into one raw rock 'n roll band.  I love the songs and Stephen Pearcy's voice is and was extremely unique. Especially in the mob of soundalikes we found ourselves drenched in back in the 80's.  What amazes me to this day is how dang good they were live.  Check it out for youself!  Also...shameless plug here but if you love this music check out the Outlaw 80's at 8 every weeknight on The Fox.  You'll dig it.

I guess I always assumed that Fresno staples like The Silver Dollar Hofbrau would be around forever.  I just had lunch there a few months ago and the place was packed so it seemed really shocking to me to hear the doors were closed.  No more sandwiches dipped in that au jus?  No more turkey legs?  No more beers in those bad ass thick chalice glasses (not that I never "accidently" took some home)?   Finding out that Silver Dollar had closed brought back memories that are so close to my heart.  I brought in the New Year there many times, met dear friends that worked there and ate & drank there.  One of my best friends even met her husband there.  Sunday afternoons sipping bloody mary's and watching football.   It was one of those places where you could see 4 Fresno State frat guys sitting at the bar next to a bunch of old timers throwing the dice and having a blast.  It was an ageless environment.  At least this is my perception...my reality of a place I will really miss!  All hail the Silver Dollar Hofbrau, thank you for the memories!  It will be missed by many!    Click here to read the article.
