100 Bullets - Wilt

100 Bullets - Wilt: Done! A fiery end to the epic series. @brianazzarello gets all the credit but artist Eduardo Risso deserves most of it.

War Horse

War Horse: Nobody does it better. Seriously, nobody in the entire history of humankind does this sort of thing better than Steven Spielberg!

30 December 2011

100 Bullets - Dirty

100 Bullets - Dirty: My other favourite character gets killed. Oh well, at least I'm this close to finishing the series. @vertigo_comics


Fela!: The most fun musical, ever! When people talk about a tour-de-force performance they need to see Sahr Ngaujah in action! Wow!

29 December 2011

100 Bullets - Once Upon a Crime

100 Bullets - Once Upon a Crime: Sad, my favourite Minuteman bites the bullet, literally. @vertigo_comics

The Help

The Help: Stellar work by Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Allison Janney & Jessica Chastain. Too bad it was wasted in this paternalistic tripe

28 December 2011

Australia Thrashes India In Test 1

Somebody forgot to tell #Ponting & #Australia that they're supposed to be over. How else to explain that huge victory over #India?! #AusvInd

Main Street

Main Street: Modest, gentle film with a huge cast. The kind of movie that John Sayles would have directed the h*ll out of in his prime.

Nina Simone - My Baby Just Cares For Me

Two of TBH's favourite things: Nina Simone and cats! Awesome video for "My Baby Just Cares For Me"! http://t.co/NucY2BEP

Young Adult

Young Adult: Entertaining, but the bloom has come off the Cody/Reitman rose. Theron was good, but Patton Oswalt totally steals the show!

27 December 2011

The Closer

The Closer: With apologies to every other show, this has the best ensemble on TV. Wish they could find a spot for good ol' Fred Willard! ;-)

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Fincher at his near-best! Mara is very good, not quite as great as Rapace. Surprisingly Craig is fantastic!

25 December 2011

24 December 2011

Richard Karn Celebrity Sighting

4th-Greatest Celebrity Sighting, Ever!: Richard Karn from Home Improvement. I resisted the urge to ask him to fix my heater! ;-)

Steelers Thump The Rams

Great win for the #Steelers against the hapless #Rams. If @tpolamalu keeps this up, a very deep playoff run is very possible! :-) #NFL #AFC

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Film)

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: Gary Oldman, like the film, is very good. Just not quite as great as Alec Guinness and the 1979 miniseries.

23 December 2011

Larry Merchant Celebrity Sighting

2nd-Greatest Celebrity Sighting, Ever!: Larry Merchant at the Landmark! I resisted the urge to ask him about Floyd Mayweather! ;-)

American Horror Story

American Horror Story: Gave up on it. Why? It was keeping me up at night! Why? Because it was scary & gross. My heart couldn't take it!

Catching Hell

Catching Hell: Bloody h*ll! The best #30For30 & one of the best movies of the year! Another great film by @BaLueBolivar (Alex Gibney). @ESPN

22 December 2011

Matt Barkley Staying at USC

Yay! @MattBarkley is staying at #USC. Im back on the #Trojans bandwagon! Hopefully MB will show the insufferable Mark Sanchez how it's done!

The Dark Knight Rises IMAX Prologue

The Dark Knight Rises IMAX Prologue: Dude! No, seriously. DUDE! Truly larger than life! Can't bloody wait for 20 July 2012! #TDK #TDKR

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol: Worth it for the incredible Dubai sequence in IMAX! @simonpegg & @PaulaPattonXO steal the show. Awesome!

21 December 2011

Heather Booted Off Top Chef

Yes! Heather ("Queen of Mean") got booted off #TopChef. Karma is quite the female dog ain't it?! @BravoTopChef @heatherterhune

Great Jay Williams Interview

Wow! Introspective & heartfelt interview with @RealJayWilliams on @DLHQ today. Not often you get this with athletes. http://t.co/XOT4nTss

The Hunter

The Hunter: A lean mean literary machine. Great work by Stark/Westlake. It's sad that I read the Darwyn Cooke comic before the actual book!

Bored To Death

Bored To Death: Quirky, offbeat, a little twee perhaps, but I loved it. They added Hodgman & Hammer's (Mike & Sledge) but alas to no avail.

20 December 2011


Hung: Low-key fun while it lasted. The Jane's (Adams & Thomas) were great. I guess even fictional Detroit can't catch a break these days.

You Know You're Too Old When Peja Stojakovic Retires

19 December 2011

Steelers Lose To Niners

Gotta be honest, that was a brutal bloody loss for the #Steelers. #BigBen has engineered way too many wins to pin the loss on him. #NFL #AFC

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

Aw-bloody-some! The Dark Knight Rises trailer starring @mvp86hinesward! Cant wait for 20 Jul 2012! @steelers #TDK #TDKR http://t.co/KlRw5fa1

The Muppets

The Muppets: Thoroughly enjoyable. But a meta Muppet movie (MMM?) is not quite the same as a "real" Muppet movie. Still loved it though!

18 December 2011


Homeland: Ridiculous but entertaining (so I guess that makes it ridiculously entertaining)! They should just give Claire Danes the Emmy now!

George Vecsey Final NY Times Column

Sad when grand old newspapermen say goodbye. George #Vecsey will be missed immensely. @nytimes @nytimessports http://t.co/DeitXQsw

RIP Cesaria Evora

RIP Cesaria Evora. Her hauntingly beautiful voice will be missed. Perfect for a winter's evening in front of the fire. http://t.co/lQv6gHQY

17 December 2011


Fracture: Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling - a match made in once-great/now-sold-out acting heaven! Mildly entertaining stuff.

Heather on Top Chef

Dude, Heather on #TopChef is quite possibly the meanest reality tv contestant, ever! @BravoTopChef @heatherterhune

16 December 2011

The Expendables 2 Teaser Trailer

HMOG! They added #VanDamme and @chucknorris! The Expendables 2! 17 Aug 2012 Can't wait! http://t.co/fzNBxxQg

100 Bullets - Decayed

100 Bullets - Decayed: Finally, the main story is gathering steam. This is one long, sorry epic, comic book, sorry graphic novel, series!

RIP Christopher Hitchens

RIP Christopher Hitchens. Whether you agreed with him or not, you had to appreciate his ferocious intelligence and wit.

15 December 2011

Rahul Dravid Bradman Oration

Rahul #Dravid is a great sportsman & an even better ambassador for #Cricket. Read his classy #Bradman Oration. #TheWall http://t.co/jwcjNSFN

Stephen Merchant NY Times Profile

The great #StephenMerchant (the power behind @rickygervais) finally gets some long-overdue media love! @smhelloladies http://t.co/KIcr1Ext

The Notebook

The Notebook: Yes, I was the only person on Earth who hadn't seen it. Yes, Gosling & McAdams ruled. Yes, Garner & Rowlands stole the film!

14 December 2011


Bridesmaids: Pretty funny, but nowhere close to the critical acclaim it received. Melissa McCarthy, though, deserved her acclaim! Wow!

13 December 2011

Andy Bull on Roy Fredericks

Another brilliant piece of writing by @AndyBullatGNM "Roy Fredericks aka Kid Cement" #WestIndies #Cricket http://t.co/hqXgNFZ0

Trent Reznor & Karen O - The Immigrant Song

Weird, creepy, awesome video by the great David #Fincher for @trent_reznor & #KarenO's cover of "The Immigrant Song" http://t.co/GK4LX8YB

Talking to James Harrison

@jaydimes Umm...have you seen James #Harrison?! I ain't telling him nothing! Maybe #Troy can talk to him for me. :-)

James Harrison Suspended

Totally unfair about @jharrison9292 suspension. Tough game against @49ers becomes harder! TBH still believes in her beloved @steelers though

12 December 2011


Luck: Terrifically exciting! Expertly crafted by the genius that is Michael Mann. Can't wait for the actual show! Loved the Plaschke cameo!

Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire: Messy but entertaining S2 capped by those gut-wrenching final 2 episodes. Not sure I can bring myself to watch S3.

11 December 2011

TBH Right Again About Giants-Cowboys

Noooooo! TBH told me not to switch from the #Giants-#Cowboys game for #BoardwalkEmpire! I didn't listen. Talk about a double-whammy! Oh man!

100 Bullets - Decayed

100 Bullets - Decayed: Now we're cooking! The story is really gathering steam. This is the most reading I've done in a while!


Awaara: A true gem from the Golden Era of Bollywood. Thanks to @LACMA, we got to see Raj Kapoor & Nargis light up the big screen once more.

10 December 2011

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Mini-Series)

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: Tad bit dated but still some of the best TV, ever! Great performances highlighted by the legendary Alec Guinness!

09 December 2011

Missed Bradley Cooper on Inside the Actor's Studio

@jaydimes Missed him. Was he funny? TBH and I are both fans.


Limitless: Ha! Very entertaining and totally far-fetched. Good directing by Neil Burger. Nice star turn by Bradley Cooper. Good stuff.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (The Book)

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: Granted I should have read it long ago, but man was it great. John le Carre's old-fashioned spy world is awesome!

08 December 2011

Roethlisberger Toughs Out Win Against Browns

Say what you will about #BigBen #Roethlisberger (& I've said plenty), you can't deny that he's one tough so-and-so! Here we go #Steelers!

Virender Sehwag ODI Record

OMBG! @virendersehwag obliterated the ODI record with a 149-ball 219! #Viru even made the @ESPN homepage! #IndvWI

07 December 2011

RIP Harry Morgan

RIP Harry Morgan. One of my all-time favourite character actors. He will be missed.

My Week with Marilyn

My Week with Marilyn: Entertaining little cutesy trifle. Michelle Williams & Eddie Redmayne are great but Kenneth Branagh steals the show!

06 December 2011


Unguarded: Powerful, frightening look at just how destructive addiction can be. Another solid @ESPN #30For30 documentary.

Page Eight

Page Eight: Aw-bloody-some! The great Michael Gambon, Ralph Fiennes, Judy Davis & greatest of all, Bill Nighy, in top form!

05 December 2011

Matt Barkley Not Heisman Finalist

Matt #Barkley was robbed of being a #Heisman finalist. Oh well, let's hope Andrew #Luck wins one for the #Pac12. #USC

Hot in Cleveland

Hot in Cleveland: Betty White & Don Rickles are a match made in comedy heaven. What took so long? Also, too bad the show's not about them.

30 November 2011


Unbroken: The writing itself is a bit prosaic, but the incredible true story completely makes up for it. Louis Zamperini truly is a hero.

Indo-Pak Express Disbands

Steelers Squeak By The Chiefs

Any #Steelers win at this stage of the season is a good win, right? Right?! Suddenly, I'm nervous about the #Bengals. Uh-oh... #AFC #NFL

The Immortals

The Immortals: Better than expected. Incredible eye-popping visuals thanks to director Tarsem. Plus, Superman kicked some major 3-D a**!

Cardinals Beat Phillies

Man! I told you we needed to be scared of the #Cardinals! The #Phillies lose! Bad year for any #Philadelphia #DreamTeam. #MLB #Playoffs

Nyjer Morgan Wins Game For Brewers

What was I saying about being a #Nyjer Morgan fan?! @TheRealTPlush delivers the game-winning hit for the #Brewers! Aaaaaaaaah #MLB #Playoffs

Dinara Safina Retires

Sad. #Dinara #Safina retires at the #Borg-esque age of 25. Just as tempestuous & entertaining as her older brother #Marat. #WTA #Tennis

Nyjer Morgan on DLHQ

I am rapidly becoming a #Nyjer Morgan & by extension a #Brewers fan! #MLB #AntonioPicante @DLHQ http://t.co/C3GpagVb http://t.co/afivixdu

KKR v RCB (CLT20 2011)

@Afridi102 Sigh, a #KKR victory maybe too much to hope for. Maybe #RCB will oblige with a letdown after that last-ball six! ;-) #CLT20

Yankees Lose in ALDS

Oh man! The #Yankees lose! And, sadly, #ARod strikes out to end it all. Sigh... #TheresAlwaysNextYear #ALDS #MLB Playoffs

The Simpsons

RCB Last Ball Six (CLT20 2011)

HMOG! Last-ball six propels #RCB into the @clt20 semis! Not quite #Miandad-86 but that kid #Karthik will be a hero in #Bangalore forever!

Moneyball: It's a little too, wait for it, "inside baseball" but I appreciate Bennett Miller's effort to make an unconventional sports film.

29 September 2011

Anthony Ryan Booted From Project Runway

I have to agree with TBH. Booting #PR9anthonyryan from #ProjectRunway blows. They only kept the insufferable Joshua because of his drama.

MLB Playoffs

Trust me, the #Yankees are ecstatic the #RedSox didn't make the #MLB #Playoffs. The #Brewers are terrified that the #Cardinals did!

28 September 2011

Brian Kenny Left ESPN?!

Brian Kenny left @ESPN?! Why wasn't I informed when my favourite @SportsCenter anchor left the mothership? Why?!

Neko Case & T Bone Burnett, Hollywood Bowl: Nice mellow alt-ish country-ish Indie-ish rock-ish. Great music to picnic to.

Sharon van Etten at the Hollywood Bowl

Sharon van Etten, Hollywood Bowl: It's always nice to listen to pleasantly earnest Indie pop. Plus, she used a harmonium!

Sam Stosur Wins the US Open

Steelers Lose to Ravens

Wow! #Steelers got destroyed! Great, now they're going 0-16 & the #Ravens are winning #SBXLVII! So bloody sad! #NFL #SportsHeartbreak

India Tie England

I was wrong, #India figured out another way to lose: Score more runs, match is called a tie, #England win series. #SportsHeartbreak #EngvInd

9/11 Remembrance Piece

RIP to all those who died on 9/11. Here's a little remembrance I wrote about that day: http://t.co/mwp6RSr #IWill @911day

Postcards From Gander

If it’s one thing I have come to realize in my advancing years, it’s that time moves fast, very fast. And sadly, as it moves inexorably to the, well, I don’t want to get too morose here, but as it moves towards whatever it is that it moves to, it also starts to fade. Experiences that were so vivid and immediate tend to fade, and this fading accelerates the more that time advances.

It is, therefore, perhaps not that difficult to believe then that it has already been 10 years since that day when the world that we knew changed forever. It is also not that difficult to believe that the images, the, sounds, the everything from that day, once so overwhelming and inescapable, have also begun to fade, splintering into fragments scattered around your mind, coming into sharp focus when you least expect it, retreating when you try to grab at them.

What has not faded, however, are the emotions, all of them, from that day.
