Super Bowl Winner:

It’s not a real surprise, DORITOS BLAZE vs. MTN DEW ICE won my top commercial pick from Super Bowl Lll.

Doritos usually does well with their ad spots..  If you have yet to see it, have a look.

Sherlock Holmes and the Cabaret

Spending some time at the theatre is a good way to temporarily disconnect from the woes and troubles of the world and take in a bit of old school live, on-stage entertainment. I have only gone a couple of times now, both with my wife. (she’s much more sophisticated than I am.)

First we went to see a play based on the 1972 film Cabaret, Sally Bowles is a fun character to follow. Never have I really been much of a fan of musicals, but this one has a fun story that pulls you right in. It helped that the play started off with a lot of energy. I think I will rent the movie tonight.


The other night we went to see Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery, based on the original novel by Arthur Conan Doyle, It was rather quirky by design, but I thought the writer did a good job of working in comedy to the mysterious events throughout. It was fun watching only 5 actors play 30 different roles. Flawless performances were given, definitely worth a view if it comes to a theatre near you.

As a child in elementary school, I would check out the Hardy Boys books from the library frequently. I remember I would always try and figure out the mystery before the end of the book. I’m happy to report that I usually did. The Hardy Boys were pretty simple books to read. Really, mystery was the first books I ever finished cover-to-cover.

There is some sort of a different draw to live entertainment for me, it is much more appealing watching a performance that has not been edited to perfection. I really should get out more.
