I Gotta Feeling vs. I Want You to Want Me

The Beatles feel more than fine after narrowly defeating KC and his band of sunshine. Wednesday's matchup probably couldn't pit two more different songs that were released nearly 30 years apart. Only one other Play it Forward matchup features this much of a year gap between the two competing songs.

Obstructed reView: Boston

Just a simple series of recommendations, today. Let’s look back at some of the best Boston movies. I find that I can only take so much media speculation at times like these, so it’s useful to take a step back and just breathe until there is more factual information for journalists and news readers to impart. In the meantime, I watch movies. There are ton to choose from, here, since Boston perhaps only trail ...

Obstructed reView: Career Day with Gena Rowlands

As a rule, I don’t want to know anything about an actor’s personal life. I don’t like having perspective on why she chose a certain character or what was happening with him that all he did was cry his way through that performance. I want to come to each movie as clean as I can: no preconceptions, little expectation. Shoot, if I could I would remove all footage of a work from its promotional materials. I sit ...

Obstructed reView: Spring Training

As real baseball comes ever closer to reality (some might argue we haven’t seen that in Kansas City for decades), I find myself getting my fix any way I can. Books, music, every blog known to me, even forcing the 11-yr-old to play catch with me (oh, man, he couldn’t care less, but we’re making headway) or the 14-yr-old to play MLB 2012 (she kicks my butt). The best and most satisfying distraction for me, as ...
