  • “The Artist” tells the tale of a silent film actor refusing to enter the world of talking pictures.

    In the early days of film, this was a common story. In silent films, the acting was about expression and physical drama. An actor never needed to learn an accent, didn’t worry about flubbing lines or anything verbal in the film. Many were scared of talking pictures. They weren’t sure audiences would like them as much in full sound.

    “The Artist” portrays this time period well.

  • It was only a matter of time.

    A few weeks ago I saw a news story on a morning show that told of a study done in Tel Aviv in which researchers found that participants who ate a doughnut or piece of cake or other dessert after breakfast were more likely to lose weight than those who did not. That news story was paired with another out of Boston that said drinking two cups of coffee a day resulted in a lower risk of heart failure.

    I must admit I was amused at the stories and found myself laughing out loud.

    Why, you ask?
