I was very sorry to hear of Peter O’Toole’s passing on Sunday. I always thought he was a pretty fun and surprising actor. Lawrence of Arabia – probably his most celebrated film – was a bit before my time. I’d … Continue reading

Sarah Palin NUDE!

It’s Republican National Convention week! And I couldn’t be more…uh, too busy to watch. Many of us were first introduced to perky megalomaniac Sarah Palin as she accepted her party’s nomination for Vice President exactly four years ago. At first, … Continue reading
