    Sports fans only:

    I really didn't want to like Tony Romo when he went to the broadcast booth, but I think he's become the second-best color guy doing NFL games after Aikman, and I really didn't want to like Urban Meyer, and he's a stiff, but if you listen to what he says, you'll learn a lot about the college game.

    Romo is the best NFL color guy I've ever heard. He understands the game like nobody else. He predicts what the next play will be and he's usually right.

    I'm a Lions fan and their games always get the worst announcers (sometimes even that chick for play-by-play), so Aikman is like a breath of fresh air. Listen to three hours of James Lofton sometime and get back to me.

    I finally watched Die Hard for the first time last week.

    But even I was in the camp that it’s a Christmas movie before I had seen it—in the same vein that Home Alone is a Christmas movie.

    It's old, but I do like some Cowboy Bebop. I think it's just the Western tone mixed with science fiction. I grew up on Westerns, and still watch/read them on the occasion. Always a welcome theme.

    "Once upon a time, in New York City in 1941... at this club open to all comers to play, night after night, at a club named "Minston's Play House" in Harlem, they play jazz sessions competing with each other. Young jazz men with a new sense are gathering. At last they created a new genre itself. They are sick and tired of the conventional fixed style jazz. They're eager to play jazz more freely as they wish then... in 2071 in the universe... The bounty hunters, who are gathering in the spaceship "BEBOP", will play freely without fear of risky things. They must create new dreams and films by breaking traditional styles. The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called... COWBOY BEBOP"

    Literally my philosophical approach to writing. I love Cowboy Bebop man. While I never really got into the western genre, my dad did impart some appreciation for it in me when I was growing up. He loved John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. I enjoyed Red Dead Redemption, and I've always held a certain fascination for the Wild West.

    There's a certain cool and toughness to the tone that I just can't get away from. It takes some of the Naturalism and Realism genres and gives them a bit of style. The mood is dark, and the endings are rarely nice, but they are satisfying. Bending laws and judgments to their own sometimes corrupted versions of morality. Few shows are able to pull it off. I think Cowboy Bebop did, which was a surprise for me when I first watched it. Breaking Bad was a twisted version of it. Right now I'm going through Longmire on Netflix, which is an excellent modern depiction of the lawless West. Modern day, old time quiet and cool, with a lot of Cheyenne cultural overtones, and one of the best depictions of modern reservation life I've seen on the screen.

    Sorry, I'm rambling. I love Western styles though. Maybe I'll write one someday.

    I very much enjoyed the unpretentious Longmire series.
