A man and his wife were shot in a movie theater yesterday for texting and allegedly making noise. This happened in Florida, in a prominent neighborhood that many friends of mine live in. One friend told me that a fellow band mate of his had gotten into it with the shooter prior to the incident and is now counting his blessings that he wasn’t the one to take a shot from the .380 handgun. What we know is that tempers, seating, and a theater’s failure to act has cost us the life of a father and a husband. Opportunists are already treating this story as a call to arms (no pun intended) for anti-gun rhetoric, or a cry for citizens to get concealed weapons permits en masse. This latter call baffles me given that I never hear stories about armed bystander guy saving the day… [Read more]

“I Bet All The Nerds Loved Princess Leia” – K’ For a Sci-Fi fan, there is nothing more pleasurable than revealing one of your favorite stories or movies to a person who has never read, seen or experienced it. Even better is if that person is a child. Just think about it. Blowing a youngling’s mind with Star Wars, Aliens, or Terminator is just as rewarding as getting a chance at watching it all over again. This weekend I got that chance as I sat with my 16yr old Padawan and broke out the original Star Wars Trilogy for her to experience for the first time. While I expected her to fall in love with the series just like everyone else has. What I didn’t account for was her bringing my attention to a number of things that clashed with modern culture (stay-tuned). Though K’(that… [Read more]

Recently I went with a few friends to check out my favorite Marvel Superhero do his thing in Iron Man 3 – I won’t lie, the movie lover in me enjoyed it…  It was a nice love story. I got so caught up in the whirlwind of Pepper and Tony’s love that I didn’t realize how far the Iron Man himself had swayed from the one I grew up with. The original Iron Man was created for a specific reason–like most super heroes that helped to push war propaganda–but to the kids buying and reading the comic books he was something to look up to. Tony Stark may have had an invincible suit of armor at his disposal but he was one of the most vulnerable heroes of the Avengers. His injured heart that was ravaged with shrapnel was spared due to friendship and ingenuity…. [Read more]

Welcome to the best top (insert number) list of hot women for 2012 on the internet. Our list rocks because, well, we like a lot of women from all different ranges of race, profession, height, you name it. So don’t think this is your standard rundown of Victoria Secrets Models and women who appear on Vanity Fair. No, this list came from THE BOYS, a collective of men who truly represent men and not some writer with a blonde fetish doling out his celeb crushes. The criteria we based our choices on was popularity, buzz, and the attitude men have towards these women’s looks, interviews, and/or movies and shows that they starred in. This top 15 isn’t here to force a certain hawte down your throat so if your favorite lady didn’t make it don’t take offense. This is the Hall of The Black Dragon’s list of… [Read more]

I was talking to my best friend the other day, and we came upon the subject of love and whether or not true, all-consuming-can’t-live-without-each-other, love really exists. We unanimously decided that the answer is no. As women, we are sold the fairy tale of a one true love. A man who will travel the world to get you back after he screws up. A man who will break up a wedding in order to have the woman he really truly can’t be without. He will profess his love for her to the public and make an ass of himself just to prove to her he’s willing to do anything to have her. This fantasy of so-called “true” love is the death of happiness for women, as it is unreachable and does not exist. Real relationships are based on love (not being in love), trust, understanding… [Read more]

Question: How much time do you spend in front of a computer these days my dear denizens? I would wager that you, like myself spend about 70% of your time staring into the one-eyed monster (2-eyed for you dual screen IT nerds) all day. When you think about this please factor in smart phones, tablets and that family of pocket-PC too. Scary isn’t it? I thought about it the other day and I spend about 90% of my life in front of a computer of some sort. While I don’t feel obligated to using a computer, I do willingly find one to do the things I love throughout the day. I wake up and check my email, drive in to the day job to stare at dual monitors for 8 hrs, stare at my Blackberry when riding to lunch and then go home to stare… [Read more]

For as many movies that I watch, the hardest genre for me to take seriously is the Romantic Comedy. Mix one part Jennifer Anniston, add a dash of Hugh Grant with a sprinkling of Katherine Heigl (the bootleg Anniston) and you have one big ball of sappy, predictable nonsense that is only separated by the unique title. So what’s a man to do when his lady only chooses to watch this nonsense? Well you get yourself a solid list of tolerable movies and let her have a night where you can suggest one that you would actually sit through. Trust me Titanic and The Notebook are not on my list as both made me roll my eyes so hard that I had a massive headache by the time they ended. If you really have to see a chick-flick, the following is a list of good… [Read more]

“You see this man? His name is One Stab. He’s a venerated elder of the Cree nation. He’s counted coup on hundreds of his enemies. He’s our friend and he’s thirsty” – Tristan Ludlow If you’re a man and you haven’t seen Legends of The Fall, then you need to go ahead and fix that. Legends of The Fall on the surface is a love story that many of you will write off wrongly as a chick flick due to it not having AK-47 and Assault Rifles but trust me, it is a movie for the boys. We nominated Legends of the Fall as a manly movie because of 3 things: the story – which is about the strength in brotherhood / Family, the indomitable human spirit (Tristan) and finally the Native American warrior known as One Stab (Gordon Tootoosis). The movie details the events of… [Read more]
