It’s a List… a List of Places to Eat

Months ago my uncle returned to Louisville for a job. Having been away for at least five years I made a suggestion: each weekend we’ll try a new place to eat. So far we’ve ate at over twenty places in Louisville. Some of them franchise, some of them local. Below is the list of places in the ‘Ville we’ve stopped at: Applebee’s B.D.’s Mongolian Grill Bearno’s BJ’s Pizza and Grill Bluegrass Brewing Company Boombozz Pizza Brick House Tavern and Tap Buffalo Wild Wings Café Mimosa Chili’s CiCi’s Pizza Clifton Pizza Company Fat Jimmy’s Flanagan’s Ale House Five Guys Burgers and…

Winter = Whiskey, Novels, and Naps.

I went to the coffee-shop because I wanted to write deliberately. Both my blog and my art have been neglected this season, as winter is only good for whiskey, novels, and naps.  This morning, however, I determined ten hours of sleep was enough and got up at 8:00.  Don’t hate me for sleeping so long … I was having a lovely dream that my neighbor was raising a tiny baby elephant that took naps in a sugar bowl. Who would want to wake up from playing with a kitten-sized elephant? But it’s time. My 1099s are postmarked, and though I’m…

Lost Dog in Anchorage

Spotted these signs going up this morning all over the Anchorage/Owl Creek area. Although this doggie may well still be lingering in that territory, even a small dog can walk several miles in a short time – so I urge folks in Middletown, Lyndon, Hurstbourne and Jeffersontown to keep their eyes peeled for this pup. The number listed on the poster is 931-5546. Get on it, my fellow pet detectives.

Life Is Good In The Green Triangle

The Green Triangle is “… a future that we believe is very achievable because the vast majority of people in Louisville’s Ninth District recognize the importance of sustaining our environment,” the district’s Councilwoman Tina Ward Pugh said. That was back in May, 2010. Now there’s a team in place to move ahead with the Green Triangle vision.

Oscar Noms: Jenny and ‘The Dude’

It’s been a busy morning on my side of the Net. The Academy Awards dropped their nominations list and as I fervently scanned over it I couldn’t believe what I saw: Mark Ruffalo is nominated for an Oscar. I jest. Ruffalo is a good actor and you should check out him in movies such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “The Brothers Bloom.” This year’s “Oscar surprise” is that hometown actress Jennifer Lawrence is nominated for her work in the film “Winter’s Bone.” “Winter’s Bone” is based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell about a seventeen-year-old girl named…

Kutcher and Portman’s ‘NSA’ Relationship

Disjointedly tasteless with moments of awesomeness. Starring Ashton Kutcher, Natalie Portman, Kevin Kline, Ludacris and Lake Bell. Directed by Ivan Reitman It’s theorized that in Hollywood there is a machine. It lives, breathes, and exists below the streets of Los Angeles much like the purported ones that record all of our phone conversations exists somewhere beneath the windswept plains of Nebraska. Studio Execs keep this machine secret, looking behind their backs as they take the Metro to a clandestine tunnel located directed under Century City to another rail line that transports them to the room where this machine is kept….

Start Your Engines, Louisville!

When I visit other cities I’m amazed at how some of them invest in their transit systems and other facilities to make getting around easier. Minneapolis is one that comes to mind. They have a solid bus and light rail system that will take you anywhere. You can even roll your bike onto the light rail cars.
