Kurt Russell

Born March 17, 1951

Damn, I love Kurt Russell. He is one of my favorite actors. I don’t know that I have seen everything he is in but it is not for lack of trying. Below is a very brief recount of some of my favs.

Noteworthy

  • Escape from New York – 80s action movie gold. Russell is Snake Plissken and he is going into New York, which is now a prison, to save the president. So good!
  • Big Trouble in Little China – At least once a year, I have to watch this movie. I love it. It is part of my childhood. Again, 80s action movie gold. If there is part of this short list you have not seen this is the one to start with.
  • Tango & Cash – Good cop, bad cop. Rich cop, poor cop. They get to the same end they just get there in different ways. Russell and Stallone are out of this world.
  • Death Proof – I could not resist throwing in a Tarantino. Russell is Stuntman Mike and he chose poorly for his second set of targets to continue his serial killing ways.

I was brought up by two people who just said, Whatever it is you’re interested in, go do it. There is no winning or losing. You find out when you do it what the experience is.

Good Riddance 2016

Good Riddance 2016 From a pop-culture perspective, 2016 sucked. We lost icon after icon in 2016 and at this point as I reflect on the year, it is really what I am focused on. Below is a brief list of some of the losses that stuck out to me. It is not all inclusive and...

Overdrive App

My latest obsession on my phone is the Overdrive App. This is the fault of one my co-workers (Amy you know who you are). I was using Audible, and I love Audible - if there is a book that I want to keep, that I want to listen to more than once, or once a year, I will...

Geena Davis

Geena Davis - Born January 21, 1956 I love and admire Genna Davis. She is an amazing actress and thoughtful human being, and one of those people that I think it would be fun to break-bread with. Just picking her brain on the topics of the day would be mind-blowing....

Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston Born March 7, 1956   Bryan Cranston hit my radar when he was on Seinfeld, one of the best sitcoms ever. Then he was on Malcolm in the Middle - another of my favorites that I have binge-ed through several times. Then he changes gears and he is the lead...
