This week’s Philly Post column is about something I’m very happy I was able to highlight- the campaign by a group of Phillies fans on Twitter to honor their late friend and raise some money for his funeral expenses. Please check it out if you haven’t already.
The first new blog post from my sons is now online, celebrating the new year, the arrival of their new cousin Jacob, Noah’s third birthday and a lot more.
I’m planning to do another big video with the boys in the next couple of weeks.
I pay tribute to last weekend’s Toronto Star column, and other viral sensations of terrible writing, in this week’s Philly Post column.
My appearance on WCHE last week can now be heard here. Thanks to the Morning Magazine crew and my colleague, Shawn Kotzen, for having me on the show.
Some new writings published this week:
On Philly Post, I discussed why Jim Thome might not make the Hall of Fame.
I also appeared this morning to discuss the Oscars and other movie stuff on the Morning Magazine show on WCHE in West Chester. Podcast of that will be posted at some point I am told.
Here it is. And here’s what’s wrong:
1. It’s horribly written, and you get the sense that the author was figuratively (and probably literally) jerking off as he wrote it.
2. It’s about three years too late in Megan Fox’s career arc for a magazine cover profile, and there’s not much about her that’s left to explore. She’s hot, and she occasionally says crazy things. We knew that in 2008.
3. “Lena Dunham and Adele and Lady Gaga and Amy Adams are all perfectly plain.” Oh, shut up.
4. Amy Adams is sexier than Megan Fox, and I don’t think it’s particularly close. And I’d much rather read a cover story about her. Just not by this idiot.
I’m back from my annual trip to Vegas for CES. It was my fifth trip there, and I’m somehow not sick of it yet. I was, however, sick- stuck in my hotel room for a whole day that unfortunately knocked me out for all of Press Day, although I was fine by the next morning
I’ll have more for print later, but here’s my roundup of the star-studded Qualcomm keynote, which had cameos from everyone from Steve Ballmer to Alice Eve to Maroon 5.
Also, closer to home, here’s my Philly Post column for this week, about that “Nice Guys of OK Cupid” site.
My review of the best movie of 2012, “Zero Dark Thirty,” is online at EntertainmentTell.
