Kurt’s Blog: The Cat Stays on the Table & Tom Hanks Movies

A belated happy birthday to my cat Sammy…turned 13 yesterday…as you can see by the above photo, it’s the one day he’s allowed on the table. We keep it classy at my household.

Immediately after taking this photo, my wife informed me “go buy a new tablecloth”.


Happy Birthday bud.

Captain PhillipsTom Hanks Leaving Scotts Restaurant

This movie looks so good…Tom Hanks starring in a fact-based movie? Hmm…he’s had some success in this department.

It stars Tom Hanks…it has to be good…Tom Hanks doesn’t make bad movies (unless there’s a Julia Roberts movie involved).

Hoping to go see Captain Phillips this afternoon, but if not today…early next week for sure.

Oh, the little joys of life…like wearing a green shirt in front of the green screen at the Science Center.


My kids think I’m very funny (That’ll change soon though, I’m sure)

American Horror Story: Coven

I don’t know what to think of AHS: Coven. The first 25 minutes felt exactly the same to me as last season’s “Asylum”. There was a guy with a weird mask in the beginning…a sex scene…off to the asylum/coven…and then Jessica Lange acts creepy. It just feels like I’ve seen this before.

All I hope is that they don’t lose their steam like they did last year…the whole Bloodyface thing just fell apart at the end…and remember the aliens? What was up with the aliens? The buildup was so good…but it was a letdown in the end.

Ranking the Kardashians…

In terms of being most annoying…the current rankings of annoyance are:

5. Khloe

4. Bruce (his yelling at the paparazzi has been most enjoyable)

3. Kim (Kim falls to #3? C’mon Kim…get back to your old ways)

2. Kanye (I’m considering him a Kardashian until further notice)

1. Kim

Sweet sassy molassey…she just will not stop talking about her split with Bruce. I understand that this is what was written on the next page of the script, but couldn’t somebody have re-touched the script a little? This is unbearable. Oh, and when you include Bachelor Ben Flajnik into a story…it instantly increases your annoyance ranking 231%.

Walking Dead

I know Colleen is super-excited about the Walking Dead premiere on Sunday night. It’s a show that I watch, but not always…I saw every episode last season, but somehow missed the season finale. I don’t know how that happened?
