Entertainment

  • At this point in the year I would normally be sitting in my seats at Petco Park cheering on my Padres but … these are unique times. While the first half of the year was dominated by cancelations and questions about if we’d ever have a chance to watch our favorite athletes this year, right now is an exciting time for sports fans. That is assuming of course that you have good high-speed internet and cable so you can watch the games live!

  • As a San Diegan, I oscillate between dreading the week each summer when Comic-Con dominates our lives and being overwhelmed with excitement to see friends, learn about new movies, games, and other cool stuff that comes out this week including parties! Sadly though, this year is not like others and people are forced to stay at home. Don’t worry though, we’ve got some great ways for you to still celebrate the fun and excitement virtually.

  • This post idea started out last fall with a realization that after canceling cable TV service to save money that I was now spending just as much on streaming services after I added everything up. Now though, things have changed. That point is still strong but so is the case for reliability and the importance of local news. In a crisis like we are currently in the middle of, those points supersede just cost as two of my biggest concerns.

  • Toy Story 4 delivers laughs, and tugs at the heartstrings, bringing back the old toys we know and love with a bit of reflective self awareness while it asks “What is the purpose of old toys?”

  • Today we're talking with Australia roots rock artist, Hamish Anderson about one of his favorite cities - Los Angeles. 

  • It’s almost hard to remember back to 2008 and Robert Downey Jr’s introduction as the now-classic iteration of Tony Stark, followed shortly after by Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, but here we are, almost 11 years later, and the saga of The Avengers has its final chapter.  For now, of course. But what we have is a highly entertaining, action-packed, appropriately sweet and sentimental end for these actors in those roles that is fairly certain to satisfy everyone who has remained a fan of the series.

  • Captain Marvel is a good film for kids, with positive messages for them about not giving up, and plenty of action to keep them entertained.  For adults? It’s fun, and it’s not awful. But it’s not especially good, either. Captain Marvel hits and misses with the comedy, and doesn’t have much meat to its story, so it really just ends up as a passable actioner that sorta coasts on inertia.  

  • Football season is almost over - yes we know there's one more "Big Game" coming up but we wanted to put this list of best football movies together so we could keep busy till next season. There's something for everyone in here from silly movies like Necessary Roughness and the Waterboy to tear jerkers like Brian's Song. The one thing that they all have though is an expression of love for football and the personalities, challenges, and excitement that make football such an amazing sport on... and off the field!

  • Do you dream of driving the General Lee? How about the Batmobile or the Back to the Future Delorean? So do we! Here's our roundup of our favorite movie cars...

  • I'll admit - I'm rediscovering video games again after having taken a break for a number of years. However, I'm very excited with what I've been able to find and Miscreated is one of the highlights that I've enjoyed dumping hours of time into over the past couple weeks. It's a survival game that actually isn't "new" but has just released it's 1.0 beta version on Steam this month. Prior to that it was available to fans through the "Early Access" program. With an absolutely stunning environment to explore, resource monitoring, base building, and crafting Miscreated represents one of the most impressive gaming experiences that I've had in more than 10 years.

  • I'm going through a sort of "re discovery" of games, back in the day, I was a HUGE gamer. Virtually anything new that came out ended up on my computer and I had multiple video game systems at home as well. Somewhere along the line though that all faded and video games became something that was a passtime for the "younger me". Today though, I feel like games have matured quite a bit and I'm starting to have more time now to revisit this passtime and enjoy games again in a new way. As I've began exploring again, here's some of the ones that I'm looking forward to spending more time with in 2019!

  • As adults, when it comes to the holidays the sense of magic and wonder we had as kids is often forgotten or ignored. It is our role now to make sure that kids, friends, and those around us can still enjoy not just the experience of receiving – but also the experience of waiting. This means that it is more than simply buying something from the store and throwing it into a box. Instead, you need to think about how you are going to wrap it and get a bit creative.
  • It's hard to imagine a more hard core job than being a US Navy SEAL. These are the guys we call on to do the impossible and if they do it right, we'll never even know what they did. SEAL Team, staring Judd Lormand and a cast of other bad-ass dudes (and ladies) is one of the hottest shows on CBS TV right now. The show follows the team as they train, fight, and execute high-stakes covert missions around the world. 

  • We’ve all been in the sad scenario where our favorite series has come to a conclusion, and we haven’t got any more episodes to watch for at least a year. It’s a tough time as you need to find something else to fill the massive void in your life that used to be taken up by hours of this show.

  • There are some amazing video games out now for the Playstation 4 and this fall is a great time to be a gamer. If you don't already have a PS4, these titles will probably make you want to put on on your wishlist. Hopefully Santa is in a good mood this year!

  • If you are looking for an experience involving bearded guys throwing axes, chopping through logs, and some friendly nationalistic competition between the United States and Canada - then this is one spot in Ketchikan you need to visit. The one hour lumberjack show features real ESPN competitive lumberjacks and it's fun for adults as well as kids. 

  • The ability to play poker well is analogous to a man being able to succeed in business as well as life in general. Like everything though, there are often variations on a common theme that require you to be able to adapt so you can dominate your opponents. Here are six of the most common forms of poker that you’ll find in poker rooms and online poker games across the United States.

  • Yellowstone is a new series airing on the Paramount Network, which was formerly known as Spike TV. Starring Kevin Costner as widower John Dutton, the family patriarch on a sprawling ranch in southwest Montana, the modern western focuses on the struggles brought about by greedy land developers, angry Native Americans, local politics and family angst. 

  • This review is simple - Blockers is one of the funniest movies in a LONG TIME. Go see it! OK, so you want more? Here you go...

  • History channel has got another hit on its hands! We just got a preview of their newest show, Truck Night in America and I absolutely love it. They managed to capture everything I love about the off road truck community and combine it with competitive sports-TV shows like American Ninja Warrior. One of the competitors featured in the first season is Teresa Lummus from Idaho and we got a chance to chat more with her about her love of trucks and the experience of being part of Truck Night in America. 

Let's Stay In Touch!
