Topics ranged from Obamacare & health insurance, gospel music, crime and Mobile police effectiveness to the 'Moonpie Drop' and- of course- to blimps.
"Alabama Football recruiting" was also a topic, for good measure.

FABULOUS Christmas Video!!

The incomparable William Wolfgang Lee performed a mini-concert at The Amacker household on New Year's Day following The University of Alabama's convincing victory over Michigan State.

In the above video, he sings The Chipmunks' classic "Christmas Time" while wearing a 'Mark Ingram' jersey and does a pretty fine job. His chauffeur/road manager/father is on-hand for rhythmic and moral support.

Plenty of Explosions and Punches, But Sadly, GREEN HORNET Lacks 'STING'


I went to the free preview of "The GREEN HORNET" last night, and I have to say that I was a little disappointed. The lame advertising tag line "They have to break the law to save it" was weak, and -as I feared- also signaled a weak plot.
As a fan of the original TV series (which was an adaptation of a comic which was an adaptation of a radio show), I was curious how the classic 'Kato' character (originated by the legendary BRUCE LEE) would be portrayed. I was pleasantly surprised by the stereotypically stoic-yet-comically-explosive performance by Jay Chou. He was a brilliant 'Kato'.

The title character, however, was a different story altogether. The Green Hornet needed to be strong and assertive. Seth Rogen tried, but he’s just goofy. (Also being the co-writer & co-producer, the humor was just ‘mildly entertaining’-- like anything else he does) The sets and 3D were very cool! The action was pretty good, but the gratuitous fight scenes were too few. It was as if the movie would ‘try’ to take off, but Rogen’s sub-par talent would just drag it back to mediocrity.
