AMC Strikes Gold with ‘The Killing’

AMC is a channel known for bringing back classic movies. I know they are there when I need my Scarface or A Few Good Men fix.  This is why some people may not realize that AMC has been pushing out some quality television shows.  First, they caught my attention with ‘The Walking Dead’, which kept me wanting more with each episode.  Others have told me that ‘Mad Men’ is also worth watching.  They kept the train moving recently with the start of their new series, ‘The Killing’.

Word Of the Month (May 2011)- BONETAR

BONETAR  [bone – tahr]
1.  A foolish or idiotic person.
          “Look at this bonetar over here, he just tied his shoes together by accident and tripped into that vat of jelly.  What a bonetar!”

You may also refer to a sketchy area with many losers and geeks around as Bonetar Central.

BONETARRISH – [bone – tahr – ish]
2.     Inadequate and borderline retarded
          “Check out that bonetarrish guy over there wearing a wife beater while he walks his cat on a leash down the street.”

BONETARRING – [bone – tahr – ing]
3.  Conducting yourself in a very unappealing and corny way.  You are, in all likelihood, messing something up big time.
          “Steven, stop spilling Cheetos out of your mouth when you eat.  You are  really bonetarring up my new carpet, you bonetar.”

Word Origin – A wise man was once trying to describe a friend as a moron when he got two words mixed up (boner and retard) and accidentally called this friend a ‘bonetar’.

  • Try to use BONETAR in your daily conversation this month and comment under this post how you used it.  If it is the best usage of the word, we will add it to our Word Of the Month Hall of Fame page!

Wolf Theater: Cliff & Jayson

On November 30th, 2010, Jayson Werth declined an arbitration offer from the Philadelphia Phillies. That ended a four year stint with the ball club in hopes of signing a long-term, big-money contract.  He succeeded in his quest when he shocked the baseball world and signed with the Washington Nationals, the cellar-dweller of the same division as the Phillies, on Sunday December 5th, 2010.  The deal? A healthy $126 Million dollars over seven years.  That’s a pretty penny.  Then, in a shocking turn of events, Cliff Lee, one of Werth’s best friends, decided to bypass more lucrative deals and re-join the Phightin’s.  This must have angered Jayson.  Werth has publicly stated that Lee hadn’t informed him of that decision, or even mentioned the chance of it.  Jayson was visibly upset.  The following clip provides a chance to see what most likely took place the first time Cliff and Jayson caught up.

2011 MLB Picks; Read it and weep.

A month has come and gone in the 2011 Major League Baseball season.  This is when all the lucky starts begin to fade and slow starts are overcome.  The trip through a long season begins to take form.  Some speculate that it takes about a month to really know what you’re going to get from your favorite team for the year.  Others may say it takes up to 50 games.  We’re going to dive into it at this point.  We’re going to provide our picks for MVP’s, Cy Young’s, and ROY’s for each league, and also some input as to why we chose them.
