Charlotte Parent: Traveling Through Time

It’s easy to make decisions after the fact.

By which, dudes, I mean that every decision seems inevitable when you look back on it once it’s been made.

Whether you’re looking back in triumph or regret quite definitely colors how you view that decision.

If I’m being a bit obtuse today, it’s because I’ve been thinking about decisions, how we make them and just how many billions of dollars I could earn if only I could find some way of forecasting accurately the outcome of parental decisions.

Mostly because I just saw a really funny time-travel short movie.

Today, over at Charlotte Parent, I’ll be talking about hindsight and showcasing the funny movie I referenced above. As usual, I’ll be blogging under our Stay-At-Home Dudes column name.

Come join us, yeah?

Sunday Show: Great Movie Quotes

There’s one thing you should now about people who make lists: they do it knowing the list itself will be the most contentious thing about it.

Make an exhaustive list of the most important hairstyles in the worldThe truth? You can't handle the truth! and someone will immediately step up and discuss how, not only did you miss the daylilly tiger paw, but you clearly don’t know your hairstyles if that is what you picked for number one.

That being said, I still like looking at lists. I especially enjoy looking at lists that are made from movie clips because then I get to enjoy that bit of the movie again and again.

And such was the case with this. The dude who presents this claims it’s a list of the 100 Greatest Movie Quotes Of All Time, but it’s obviously not. How could it be if it didn’t have “A hospital? What is it?”

“A hospital is a big building with patients in it, but that’s not important right now.”

And that top quote? Really? I couldn’t give a damn about it.

Enjoy this somewhat NSFW list.

Sunday Show: Still Guarding The Galaxy

More action, more laughs and my enthusiasm gets cranked up yet another notch.

Dudes and dudettes, if this movie bombs I’m going to be extremely Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Poster-High-Res-570x844disappointed. Because, so far, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy looks to be a-frakkin’-mazing!

A science fiction/superhero mash up with some of Marvel Comics’ cosmic characters, Guardians is a relative newcomer to the comics scene. In fact, most of the members had been languishing in limbo until just a few years ago when several creators hauled the various characters out into the current Marvel Universe, dusted them off, polished ’em up and then sent them on to success.

But, enough of me yakkin’. If you haven’t seen it yet. . . What’s the matter with you? This is the second trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, starting Aug. 1, 2014.

Enjoy.
