  • Is reality real anymore?

    Within the last week, we learned that a show on HGTV about people finding a new home in a new city is staged. The show is called House Hunters. I found myself watching the show being fascinated about the process. Revelations came out from a former participant of the show that most of it is staged. Things brings me to reality TV in general. From Big Brother, Survivor, The Kardashians to Jersey Shore. Most of these shows are pushed by producers to cause friction and controversy because that's what helps the show. So is reality TV really reality? Thankfully I don't watch too much reality TV shows to care? haha. What do you think about reality TV? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Is it true that you get better with age?

    Last night, seeing the Midwest Rock and Roll Express Tour at Hartman, the thought came across my mind. Do you get better at your craft with age. The bands REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Ted Nugent have combined over 100 years of existance. The concert was amazing. The live show was great and the vibe in Hartman was electrifying. I love seeing bands play live in concert that sound exactly like they do when you hear it on their CD or on the radio. I was blown away by the show and truly enjoyed it. Did you go? What did you think of each band's set? Let me know at johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Taxpayer money flushed down the toilet over a baseball player????

    So yesterday, Roger Clemens was found NOT GUILTY on all counts for his perjury case. The US government spent millions of dollars trying to prove he lied. REALLY? Is that how our government spends our tax dollars?

  • Part 2... I guess not. I'm not surprised!

    So this past weekend, two new movies came out. The hugely hyped and promoted "Rock of Ages" movie starring Tom Cruise and also the new Adam Sandler movie "That's My Boy". Both movies struggled at the box office. I went Saturday to see the Adam Sandler movie. It's Rated R and very raunchy and over the top. I personally liked it and laughed for two hours straight. I have no plans to see the Rock of Ages movie.

  • Do you think Tom Cruise could be a ROCK STAR????

    The highly anticipated new movie Rock of Ages is out this weekend. It stars none other than Tom Cruise. It's a rock musical movie. That right there makes me not want to see it. haha. Let me say, I am a fan of Tom Cruise. I have been a fan of the Mission Impossible franchise, and liked his movies Risky Business, All The Right Moves, Top Gun and others. I just can't see him as an 80's rock star and again, this is a movie musical. The movie also stars Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Julianna Hough, and Catherine Zeta Jones. I wonder how this movie will do at the box office? If you go see it, email me at johnny@1045thefox.com and let me know what you thought.

  • are YOU talented enough to do this.....

    So last night, I went and had Japanese teppanyaki for dinner. I have experienced this 100's of times throughout my life and it never gets old. It's an art form to be able to cook infront of people. The tricks that those chefs do with the knife and spatula, the fire lighting of the food the special way that they do it, and I am and will always be a fan of the volcano and choo choo train of the layered onion. Am I easily amused? Probably, but it takes talent to do what they do. I like to sit back, drink my hot saki, and enjoy the entertainment that is teppanyaki cooking at a Japanese restaurant.

  • The most famous Goodfella has died! RIP Henry Hill.

    Were you a fan of the movie Goodfellas? The character played by Ray Liotta, was Henry Hill. He was a mob informant who wrote the book 'Wiseguy' that Martin Scorsese turned into the movie. Henry Hill has died.

  • Do you remember THIS year's summer movies?

    I was surfing the web and came across a story that made me go "WOW" realizing it has been that long since these movies were in movie theaters. The summertime is to many people, the best time of the year when a bunch of big movies are released in movie theaters. Click here to read to check out the movies that came out 30 years ago that to this day are classic movies that you must see. Hard to believe it's been 30 years. What was your favorite movie from that summer? email me at johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Manny Pacquiao got screwed!!

    Did any of you watch the fight over the weekend. Tim Bradley wins in a split decision. But for those of us who watched the fight, we are left baffled. The main question for me is, who were the judges and what fight were they watching? I don't watch much boxing these days, but I did find interest in checking this one out. My personal feeling, is Manny got screwed. Pacquiao vs. Bradley II will be hyped big time and the interest will be high. This is actually good for the sport of boxing. What did you think of the fight and the outcome? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • The Justice League would be a great movie...

    So if you are like millions of others, you recently saw the movie The Avengers. That movie features Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, Captain America and others. The movie has made over a billion dollars at the box office. Now, the company behind the Superfriends, DC Comics, says they will be making a movie that will feature Batman, Superman, Wonderwoman, Aqua Man, Green Lantern and others. I would totally geek out and love to see that. I love the cartoon when I was a kid and am intrigued to see how it would translate to the big screen. I don't know when the movie will be made and when the movie would be released, but when it does, I will definately be seeing it. What about you? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • So, did you see it?.....

    Were you able to see the Venus eclipse yesterday. If you didn't, then you won't ever get to since the next time it will happen will be in the year 21??. I didn't actually look up at the sun, since that isn't good for your eyes. I instead decided to just watch the news and see it that way. I am a total sci fi geek and was interested in the event, but I didn't go all crazy trying to see it with my own eyes. If you were able to see it, what did you think? let me know... johnny@1045thefox.com

  • How many of you are guilty of this....

    Over the weekend, I took my dog SJ to the dog park. It had rained bigtime Saturday night, so when I took him to the dog park at the KS Humane Society on Sunday, needless to say, the grass was wet and mud was everywhere. There were 4 other dogs there at the time and SJ had a ball running around and playing rough with the other dogs. Before leaving the park, i wiped him down a bit so as to not totally mess up the back of my new SUV. On the way home, I was dreading putting him in my bathtub with him being so muddy because I knew it would mess up the drainage and make the area a mess. I was driving past a 'do it yourself' car wash. I stopped in, took my dog out and tied him to a stump, inserted 6 quarters and sprayed him with the power washer for the 3 minutes or so that I had of time. It was funny and cruel to a point, but it did the job, and he was clean and refreshed. haha.

  • Survey says...........

    Over the weekend, we heard news of the passing of Richard Dawson. I was a big fan of the game show Family Feud. I used to watch it religously as a kid and would play along with every question and looked forward to fast money round at the end. I remember him in Hogan's Heroes and also on The Match Game, but he will always be remembered as the flirt host of Family Feud.

  • LAUGH OFTEN, LOVE COMPLETELY, LIVE PASSIONATELY !!

    Being reminded too often lately how fragile and precious life truly is:

  • The NBA Draft Lottery was held....and?

    Last night, the NBA had their annual draft lottery, and the New Orleans Hornets won the first pick in the draft for next year. I bring this up because I am not a fan of the one and done rule that the NBA has. A majority of the first 10 picks will be 19 year old freshman who have declared for the draft. I disagree with this rule because I feel the kids are too young and not educated or prepared to instantly be in that environment with that much money. I also think this way because I am more of a college basketball fan than an NBA fan, and because of this rule, there is no connection to players as a fan. They show up for one year and then are gone. No team is worse with this than the University of Kentucky. I moved to Wichita from Lexington, KY and know first hand about that. I hated the team because I didn't know the team. The program has become identified as a one and done school. I hope David Stern and the NBA change the rule for a player to be at least 20 years of age and/or at least two years of college play.

  • Do I lose my man card for this????

    I admit it, I am fascinated by royalty. Last night on ABC, there was a two hour special on Queen Elizabeth II. She has been the Queen of England for 60 years. The special featured interviews with Princes William and Harry and several other members of the royal family. Plus, Catie Couric, the host of the show was given a tour of Buckingham Palace. I am always interested in news stories not just of the royals in England, but Sweden, Norway, Monte Carlo, Jordan and other countries. I am a fan of William and Catherine and yes, I watched their wedding on TV last year. haha! Ok, what do you think? Do I get to keep my man card?

  • My attempt at Siskel & Ebert....(plot alert)

    So I saw the movie Men In Black III over the holiday weekend. The movie does live up to the hype of the first two movies. I found it better than the sequel but not as good as the original. The storyline was ok at best. J has to travel back in time to prevent an event from happening. The best part of the movie actually was newcomer Josh Brolin. He played K back in time. Very funny. I also appreciated the storyline at the end where Agent J is revealed to have actually met K as a child. You find out that Andy Warhol was actually a cover for an agent in the MIB program and they introduce a new chief in Agent O of the program as Zed has passed away.

  • I believe in aliens...

    I have always been a fan of sci-fi. I am a fan of the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises, I loved E.T. when I was a kid, watched ALF on TV and was a huge fan of the 80's TV series "V" and the updated series that was on last year on ABC. The new movie, Men In Black III comes out this weekend, so you can be assured I will be checking it out. The trailers for the movie released the last several months don't look that great, but I am seeing it just to continue the storyline.

  • It only took 2 hours...

    I took a chance and went to the Sedgwick County Tag office on the West side of Wichita on Maize Rd. I got there at 11:10a and it took two hours standing in line to finally get up to the front and get a new tag for my car. The nightly news and local newspaper has been mentioning all the problems that the offices are having with the new system. On top of that, there were only 3 people handling over 100 people in line or waiting. I am thankful it only took 2 hours. haha! and I am out almost $500. UGH!
