Elizabeth Banks

Born February 10, 1974

Elizabeth Banks is one of those truly funny people in Hollywood. On top of that, she is a director and a producer. Banks is going to be pushing the envelope and setting the trend in Hollywood for a long time.

Noteworthy

  • Pitch Perfect 2 – Director – While this movie didn’t hit me the same way as the original, I still love it. Tremendous movie with lots of heart and great humor. It works on so many levels. Oh yeah, and she is funny as hell in this movie.
  • Pitch Perfect – Producer – I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I would never have thought that a movie about college acapella teams would be nearly this good or that it would suck me in but I love it. Oh yeah, and she is funny as hell in it too.
  • Wet Hot American Summer Series – The whole set of these. The original movie and both the series on Netflix. They capture the summer raunchy comedy perfectly. Ensemble cast ASSEMBLE!
  • Zack and Miri Make a Porno – Anybody who knows me knew this was going to pop up on her list. Kev Smith movie with a lot of heart and plenty of over the top humor.

I think comedy has to be very fearless, or it just gets bland.

Mike Rowe

Mike Rowe Born March 18, 1962   Dirty Jobs is still my favorite Mike Rowe vehicle. Noteworthy Dirty Jobs - Rowe got down and dirty doing those jobs that you probably would not want to do and in some cases, jobs that you didn't even know were being done, to begin with....

No Mods for Fallout 4 on PS4 – WTF

I have received bad news that is affecting my ability to play a video game. No Mods for Fallout 4 on PS4 - WTF. I mean really Sony, WTF! Early in the summer, XBOX One made the jump with the folks from Bethesda, they turned on Mods for a console. Fallout 4 players on...

Rachel Dratch

Rachel Dratch Born February 22, 1966   Rachel Dratch has been on SNL since 1999. It is 2018 as of the time of this writing. That is a long damn time. She is not a regular cast member now but she is still beloved enough to make an appearance from time to time. I just...
