Iron Man 3

So, I went with my buddies Rob Little & Tommy Ryman on Friday afternoon to go see Iron Man 3.

More like Iron Yawn.

I must not be the target demo or something anymore, but I thought it was a total snoozefest. Except for the one twist in the movie (about halfway through), this movie was pretty unmemorable.'Iron Man 3' Los Angeles premiere

Here’s my main problem…when I go see an Iron Man movie…I want to see Iron Man! Not Tony Stark in a knock-off Iron Man suit, not Iron Man drones, not remote controlled Iron Man, not Don Cheadle as War Patriot or whatever he was called.

Also, really? That was the ending? Wait, what?

Enough with Tony & Piper already too…don’t try and romantic comedy my superhero movies.

My grade for Iron Man 3: D+

It made a gazillion dollars though, so what do I know?

PS. There is a scene at the end of the 9 minutes of credits…and it wasn’t worth it.

Well, Didn’t See This Comin’,

Consider me a fan of Florida Georgia Line…yep, I’ve gone country, and it’s time to get my shine on.

Oh, and apparently, my son has become a big fan of Avril Lavigne. Atta boy! He seems to like her songs…but still prefers “Handy Manny’s Greatest Hits”.

Let’s Talk About Mullets

First…Joe Dirt 2…it’s happening. No one can explain why…but it’s happening apparently.

Second…The Lawn Mullet. I just discovered this word…”lawn mullet”…I have one…you might have oneĀ as well. It’s when you have a well manicured front yard…but you’re backyard grass is just a mess.

Miley Cyrus

Well, in honor of her dad, I suppose I could have made this entry post as #3 of the mullets headline.Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party

Miley Cyrus tweeted out that she was ranked #1 on Maxim Magazine’s Hot list.

Umm…I don’t know about this one. It seems like a rather out-there choice. I admit, us men…never good with lists. It’s just an odd choice, it came from out of nowhere, right?

Maybe us guys voted her in because of her break-up with Liam Hemsworth. Is she broken up with him? I don’t even know…all I see are stupid non-stories involving Amanda Bynes & Lindsay Lohan.

Iowa Cubs

What’s this? A day with out rain or snow? An afternoon game for the I-Cubs? What? A ticket in my pocket for today’s game? What? Matt Garza is making a rehab start this afternoon. Well, consider me a happy guy.

 

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
