Posted: May 20, 2015 at 11:10 am   /   Local, Off the Wall, Opinion

Vaping, it was thought to be a freedom enjoyed by the persecuted smoker. It was thought to be safe, and yes, even some thought it to be cool. Well, Juan says you’re all full of shit! As a former smoker, I detest vaping. It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. I literally laugh at […]

Posted: November 14, 2014 at 12:07 pm   /   Film, Local, Reviews

Twenty years after one of the most ridiculous, yet humorous comedies I have ever seen, the Farrelly Brothers decided to resurrect Lloyd and Harry. I do not have much good to say about Dumb and Dumber To. It’s as bad as I expected, and maybe just a bit worse. Before I go into why the film […]
