The Greatest Actor of Our Generation Is…

Matt Damon.

Premiere of Focus Features' "Promised Land"

I’m dead serious…name a movie that Matt Damon wasn’t good in. He’s good in every movie.

You can make the argument for Tom Hanks, of course…Denzel Washington…but for my money, it’s Matt Damon.

My wife & I just got done watching “The Promised Land”…and he’s great in it. It’s a slow-movin’ movie, but it’s gripping…I’d definitely recommend it.

I looked through Matt Damon’s filmography…and there’s nothing on there that I’m opposed to…except maybe “The Talented Mr. Rippley”…snoozefest, but I mainly blame Jude Law for that.

Speaking of which…Jude Law…where’d you go? You went the way of your hairline…slowly faded away (as a bald man, I can make that joke).

When Tom Hanks saved Matt Damon in “Saving Private Ryan”…it was the passing of the torch.

Summer Just Got a Whole Lot Better

Well, when summer gets here of course, first, apparently, we have get through some snow? What’s up with that?

Anyhoo…Dairy Queen? Yes, they have Blizzards in a waffle cone now. That my friends is “VICTORY”! Finally, an easier way to eat a Blizzard while driving.

For Fans of Downton Abbey

A producer of the show says that within the year, a Downton Abbey clothing line will be intorduced…plus, homeware line, furniture line, and more. Your transformation to Dame Maggie Smith is nearly complete! (Note: If Maggie Smith has not been “dame-d” yet, that’s a shame. What are you waiting for Queenie?)

Big Ken is Happy Today

Ken was happy to hear that “Dallas” is coming back for a third season. (At this point, Ken looked at me and said “Stop blogging about me”.

Oops

I can’t wait for the new season of “Arrested Development”, which is one of the best TV comedies ever….and apparently, John Krasinski of The Office will make a few appearances.

When Yahoo saw this, they posted the story with an accompanying picture…except the pic wasn’t of of John Krasinski, it was of Boyz N’ The Hood Director John Singleton.

Not even close.

 

I Have No Idea Why You Would Want This

If Facebook wasn’t everywhere already, now it’s in your beer cup. Budweiser unveiled the “Buddy Cup”, which is a pint glass with a built-in chip that connects to Facebook. When two people clink their “Buddy Cups” together, the chips automatically connects them to Facebook.

I don’t know how that works after that…I’m sure if it catches on though, we’ll soon see a ton of posts that say:

“Kurt and Eric have clinked glasses”

Great.

This Poor Woman

It’s not enough that it took this woman nearly 30 minutes to parallel park…but to have drunk soccer hooligans doing play-by-play of it makes it even worse (although, I must admit, those guys should do play-by-play of all events).

Let’s Ease Up a Bit

A customer at Starbucks was irate because she told the Barista her name was Viriginia, but apparently, the name on the cup said “vagina”. She posted a bunch of stuff on the Starbucks FB page about “THIS is just UNACCEPTABLE”.

It went on to say that something similar to this has happened before…one time a barista wrote “VIRGIN” instead of Virginia.

Now she claims that getting a coffee is now traumatic for her…writing “Every Starbucks experience for me been couple with fear & anticipation”.

Relax. How about just giving the barista a different name…like Sue? They don’t really care what the name is. This Virginia needs to chill the heck out.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
