Grimm Delivers Fast-Paced Fairy Tales

Strictly in the PG-13 category, Grimm is fairy tales meets Michael Myers/Freddy Kruegger and a dash of NCIS. These are not the bedtime stories you tell your kittens and puppies. Catch up on the network site if you are just joining.

Cybergeddon, the Latest Web Series From Yahoo!

Smutty is pondering litigation.  It seems the creators of CSI have come up with a new Web series called Cybergeddon.  It appears to be a great project, but the title is dangerously close to Smutty’s own movie Smuttageddon.

Couldn’t they have found another name for it?  Why have the confusion, Smutty has enough competition without the creators of CSI adding to his troubles.

Well, check out the trailer and let Smutty know what you think.

Bill Clinton Jazzy Without Sax

To wrap up Smutty’s coverage of the DNC, here is the word from Obama BFF Bill Clinton.

Former President Bill Clinton delivered the nomination address at the DNC and wowed as usual.  But in less than one hour, Clinton addressed every one of the Republican’s so-called issues with President Obama and revealed them for the lies they are.

By having facts and accurate figures at his fingertips, Clinton destroyed all of the rhetoric proclaimed at the RNC.

The best quotes; “We’re all in it together” “Arithmetic” “Their number one priority is not to put America back to work, it is to put President Obama out of work” “We left him a total mess, he hasn’t cleaned it up fast enough so fire him and put us back in”.  Shouldn’t the Republicans be concentrating on positive outcomes for the American public, not just getting President Obama out?  Smutty’s just sayin’.  Check the video for yourself,  Smutty gives it 4 paws of apawoval.

Word From the Top; “I am the President”

Smutty had to skip a few naps but he watched the entire speech from President Obama at the DNC.  If you missed it, Smutty has graciously posted it below.  There were so many good phrases and sound bites it is hard to choose, but Smutty’s favorite is this;

Michelle Obama Rocks the DNC

The video speaks for itself.  Michelle Obama is great, beautiful, smart, supportive, well spoken and down to earth.  What more can be said, Smutty is in LOVE!

Smutty likes this so much he borrowed 2 paws from a friend to give it 6 paws up!

BTW, Mrs. Obama, can you ask the Prez if he will add pet food to the food stamps of low income families?  That way they won’t have to let their pets go or have them put to sleep.

Great Sci-Fi Escapes

Smutty NapSmutty found some great Sci-Fi to veg out on.  When you need a stay-cation for the weekend or just need to spend quality time with your pet, try out some of these.  If you haven’t seen them from the beginning, use a streaming service or the network web site to go back and catch up on episodes.

Star Wars Clone Wars *FAMILY FRIENDLY*
The very notion of Sci-Fi comes from both Star Trek and Star Wars. These two franchises set the gold standard for the type. Clone Wars has stunning visuals and is set between the second and third Star Wars movies .  It follows Jedi knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in their roles as generals of the Clone Wars. Shared adventures take them across worlds both familiar and not, fighting with the clone army in battles against the Separatists, and other foes old and new.

The show provides a glimpse into never-before-seen parts of the Star Wars universe, and like the movies is a great family shared adventure.

Alphas
Currently airing on SyFy, Alphas is about a group of seemingly normal people who have superpowers, called Alpha abilities, like heightened senses, strength and the ability to see communications signals as streams of data.

Along with their psychologist, Dr. Rosen, they’re employed by the government as part of a secret program to track down criminal Alphas. It starts out as a by-the-books superhero tale and quickly becomes an intriguing mix of secret agendas, questionable loyalties, and surprising twists that’ll have you wondering who the bad guys are.

Falling Skies
A tale of invasion set after alien overlords have decimated most of the human race, leaving only a few pockets of resistance struggling to fight back. The series focuses on one group in particular, a mixture of civilians and military from Massachusetts.

The greatness of the show plays off of the human drama that unfolds among the survivors rather than massive special effects battle sequences.

Futurama – *NOT FOR KIDS*
A hilarious series following the misadventures of an intergalactic delivery company called Planet Express. The central character, Philip J. Fry, is a regular pizza-eating, beer-drinking everyman from the 20th century who gets cryogenically frozen and wakes up in the 31st century.

He find himself in one crazy situation after another, along with his very decrepit great nephew Professor Farnsworth, a headstrong cyclops named Leela, an alcoholic robot named Bender, and a whole host of other oddballs. While not for the whole family, this is great fun for not sensitive adults.

Smutty is Eastwooding

Smutty EastwoodingYes, Smutty has been #Eastwooding.  Smutty is ashamed to admit it, but after reading the Huffington Post, he had to jump into the #Eastwooding fray.

Eastwooding is not just a momentary fad, Smutty declares that Eastwooding will become a lifestyle choice.  Seniors of the world rejoice, your moment to shine has been delivered by Dirty Harry himself.

The sheer volume of Facebook and Twitter communications ensures that this trend will be with us for a long time to come.  Every time you see an empty chair, you will smile fondly in remembrance of this shared American experience.

In case you have been in a Tibet monastery for the past few days, Smutty is graciously posting the video of the speech heard around the world which birthed “Eastwooding”.
