Obsessed Much?

As of a few minutes ago, Yahoo News has 17 stories in regards to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Based on recent history, I can guess that the reporting is not 100% accurate.

If the job of news media is to accurately report on what is going on in the world and let the reader or viewer make a decision on their own, they are doing a poor job.

Or they are doing the same sheep like reporting without doing their own homework.

I think the news media needs to find a new obsession and do their homework before blindly sharing lies and half truths.

Throwback Thursday- American Dreams (2002-2005)

In the early 1960’s, Meg Pryor (Brittany Snow) is a good girl in the TV series American Dreams. Bob Dylan said that the times are a changing, and he was right.

Meg’s dream is to be a dancer on American Bandstand with her best friend, Roxanne (Vanessa Lengies). Meg’s brother, JJ (Will Estes) is trying to define his life on his own terms instead of following his father’s path in life. Meg’s parents, Helen and Jack (Gail O’Grady and Tom Verica) are struggling to understand their lives as parents and partners in a ever changing world.

This show was cancelled after three years. It was one of those shows that could have been on the air for a few more years, but atlas, the TV G-ds chose otherwise.

But at the end of the day, it was a good show with excellent music.

I recommend this show.

Throwback Thursday- Melty Patrick Swayze -Dirty Dancing (1987) & Ghost (1990)

To a certain generation of women, Patrick Swayze is the movie heartthrob they will never forget. Masculine, charming, but also sexy and sensitive.

While Mr. Swayze is no longer with us, his movies will remain with us.

Dirty Dancing (1987)

In the early 1960’s, Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is on vacation with her family in the Catskills. She falls in with Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), a dance teacher at the hotel from the wrong side of the tracks.  When Johnny’s regular dance partner is unable to work, Baby takes her place.

Dirty Dancing is a classic. Baby’s coming of age story set to the music of the early 1960’s is perfection. There is something about this movie that no matter how many times I’ve seen it, I have to see it one more time.

Ghost (1990)

Sam  Wheat (Patrick Swayze) and Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) are perfectly happy together.  After Sam is murdered, his spirit remains on Earth to look after Molly and avenge his death.

This is one of the most romantic movies ever made. Only the coldest heart would refuse to melt at the idea of Sam’s devotion to Molly.There is also the scene with the clay that is just way too hot.

I recommend this movie.
