Spinning off Classics with A-Train.

I got to wondering the other day, “How did the Asian terrorist (Uli), and the black cyber terrorist/hacker (Theo) end up on a team with mostly East-German’s in the movie Die Hard.” I know that I’m not alone in wondering this. I for one am sick of Die Hard remakes, after Die Hard with a ...

Throwback Thursday: 20 Years Ago Today Jordan Won his 6th NBA Title with a Performance for the Ages.

I don’t know how anyone who watched Michael Jordan dominate the NBA can make the argument that LeBron is the superior basketball player. Some of the strongest and best evidence of MJ’s greatness occurred 20 years ago today. Damn, I feel old. Jordan was 6-0 in his NBA finals career and even more impressive was ...

A-Train Watches: Hotel Artemis.

I’m back to blogging. I know the post have been few and far between of late. This week I’m diving back into it with a review of Hotel Artemis. Hotel Artemis is my kind of movie. It’s got a lot of colorful villains doing colorful villain shit, all set in the backdrop of a futuristic ...

If you wait for it on dvd/streaming you are going to be disappointed. Side Note: Do films even come out on DVD anymore? I honestly can’t remember the last time I ...

My Long Held Belief that Hand Dryers are the Worst Invention Ever, Substanciated by Science.

The Headline Reads: “Hand dryers spray human waste particles all over you, study finds.”  A-Train chimes in: “And it doesn’t even dry your fucking hands!” I have long held the position that the electrical hand dryers in public bathrooms are one of the worst inventions of all time. What makes an invention bad? Doesn’t improve on ...

Johnny Roast Beef: You Come at the Queen, You Best Not Miss.

I was as upset as anyone when Deadspin decided to attack barstool yet again. But I wasn’t surprised. Deadspin makes a living by calling Barstool a misogynistic website for because it caters to a male audience. The only way anyone clicks on a Deadspin article is if it’s bashing barstool, most of those clicks are fans ...
