This Week: September 4 – 10, 2011 Welcome back to The 168 Turnaround, though now newly modified.  I’ll still be running through my favourite Entertainment news from the past week (or 168 hours).  Instead of spending the same amount of time on each topic, however, I’ll give a quick recap of the week, and then … Continue reading

The 168 Turnaround: A Few Last Words…

A&E NEWS: August 21 – 27, 2011 NEW POSTS ON SEPTMEBER 6, 2011 VACATION:  It’s pretty lousy of me to take a week off from work and go camping.  I know—you don’t need to say it.  Everybody needs time away from work, but my commitment should be here, at http://www.zsroe.com.  I should be writing extra … Continue reading

RFP: Worst Movie Ever–And I Loved It

Generally, I try to avoid bad movies. If you read this blog regularly, then you might have caught my post on things to look out for, namely mockbusters, breast implants, Rob Schneider, and several bad directors. At the bottom of the list, I mentioned a 2003 film called The Room—a film so bad that it … Continue reading

A&E NEWS: July 24 – July 30, 2011 CGI NIPPLES: In the past twenty years, CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) has been a dominant presence in the movie business. From Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park to Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Green Lantern, there’s been no escaping the rampant use of computer trickery. But aliens, … Continue reading

RFP: Fail Log—My Story Of Professional Rejection

Rejection is the pits. Whether you’re rejected by a significant other, a friend, a family member, or even a pet, there’s no escaping how completely lousy the experience is. Your self-confidence? Gone. Your sense of self worth? Right out the window. But what about professional rejection? What about when your choice of career is a … Continue reading

A&E NEWS: July 17 – July 23, 2011 FUNNY FACES:  In an age when nearly everyone carries a camera with them (via cell phone), it’s inevitable that somebody will snap a picture of you unaware, capturing you making an awkward or silly face.  And since there’s no avoiding it in this day and age, you … Continue reading

RFP: Christopher Nolan–What A Tease

Fans of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight can rejoice—the teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan’s final Batman film, is finally here.  No, not the film itself, nor even the proper theatrical trailer; instead, what we have here is less than two minutes of cryptic footage:  Commissioner Gordon in a hospital … Continue reading

RFP: From Punk Rawk To Gaga–A Discordant Mix

Music is serious business.  The music you listen to says a lot about the kind of person you are: your values, beliefs, hopes, desires, and fears.  For some of us, music plays a fundamental part in our lives—not simply reflecting who we are, but shaping who we will become.  Unsurprisingly, many people take it very … Continue reading

The 168 Turnaround: Gonna Skin Me Some Rabbits

A&E NEWS: July 3 – July 9, 2011 CAPTAIN CENSORED: The United States is its own biggest fan.  Ask any American which country is the best country, and they’ll likely respond, “why, America, of course.”  Ask anyone else, and America is likely low on the list.  Which might explain why Russia, Ukraine, and South Korea … Continue reading

RFP: Overlooked—The Best A&E You Likely Missed

Part 3 (of 3) This week marks the end of a three-part series on the best arts and entertainment that has been consistently overlooked time and time again.  We’ve gone from children’s television to adult-themed film, and are now finding our final resting-place with my favourite medium, the novel. In the first week, I recommended … Continue reading

The 168 Turnaround: Two Cups Of Crazy

A&E NEWS: June 26 – July2, 2011 CHARLIE SHEEN: I think I’ve been up front with my feelings about actor-turned-lunatic Charlie Sheen.  His debacle with CBS, his mad ravings during interviews, and his curious “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option” tour have all forever confirmed the truth that wealth and celebrity status … Continue reading

RFP: Overlooked—The Best A&E You Likely Missed

Part 2 (of 3) Last week I began a three-part series on the best of Arts and Entertainment.  But there was a small catch—it was a list of the best A&E that has been overlooked time and time again.  The reasons for such oversights are many and usually complicated, but are also worth consideration. In … Continue reading
