Speaking as a disabled veteran of the culture wars,

I wholeheartedly endorse everything Frank J. Fleming talks about in this article, 5 Rules for Victory in the Culture War. I watched “Christian culture go from something that was *almost* accepted by the mainstream (The Jesus Freak movement) into something that is openly derided and mocked by the trendsetters and culture mavens of our society.

Oh Captain! My Captain!

In 1989, I was attending Mesa Community College, pursing a degree in Journalism. I was a photographer on the student newspaper and for the first time in life, part of the cool kids crowd.  I had spent the last ten years wrapped up in the world of role-playing games, hanging out with geeks into the • Read More »

Have a Coke and a smile

It appears that the dextrosphere is panicking over the fact that an iconic worldwide brand closely associated with a nation of immigrants uses immigrants to sell its product.   For the record, as an immigrant to the U.S., I thought this Coke commercial was pretty neat. It’s a good reminder that people come to this country • Read More »

Wedge issue. Maul. Some assembly required.

Are the Republicans smart enough to figure out that opposing perpetual copyrights is a big, big win for them?  I hope so.  I agree with a whole bunch of other people that the liberty and freedom that conservatism offers is better and cooler than the statism of the left. It ain’t conservatives that are telling you • Read More »

A TV show every conservative should be watching

Portlandia.  And it doesn’t stop there. “Why don’t you just get a job and go to work like a normal person?” “I do work. I work at a co-op.” “A hippie place.”  “It’s not a hippie place. We like to think of ourselves as more alternative.” “So where do you live?” “I got three roommates • Read More »

We are HUGE MST3k fans here at Exurbanleague, so much so that I once donated a kidney to Tom Servo. So of course I’m going to enjoy this. And as to the endless “Joel vs. Mike” debate, I’ll say “Trace Beaulieu”. The jokes just weren’t as obscure once he left, so it didn’t matter who • Read More »

The Top 25 Conservative TV Shows of the last 25 Years

June 2, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on The Top 25 Conservative TV Shows of the last 25 Years | Filed in: Advertising and Marketing, Culture, Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics, Television.

Television has been dismissed as a cultural wasteland, and for conservatives, it’s a barren wasteland indeed, especially over the last quarter-century. Joe Friday doesn’t save the world from hippies every week: Today, the hippies are the heroes and conservatives (especially conservative Christians) are the villains. But there is still hope. There are still good conservative tv • Read More »

The Dead Health Care Reform Sketch

(OBAMA enters the House of Representatives with a large binder.) OBAMA: Hello, I wish to register a complaint. Hello, sweetie? PELOSI: What do you mean, “sweetie?” OBAMA: I’m sorry, it’s been a rough week. I wish to make a complaint! PELOSI: We’re closing for recess. OBAMA: Never mind that, honey. I wish to complain about • Read More »

Memo to Dan Patrick’s former sidekick

This is what violence towards women really looks like. Who, exactly, is it the misogyny-frenzied brutes in charge of administering “justice” to the Saudi distaff side are protecting—and from what? When they condemn a woman who’s been gang-raped to 200 lashes for “having sex outside marriage,” or give a destitute 75-year-old widow 40 lashes for • Read More »

Cathy Lee Crosby, John Davidson and Fran Tarkenton disagree

December 24, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Cathy Lee Crosby, John Davidson and Fran Tarkenton disagree | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin, Politics, Television.

Harry Reid proudly states that “Real People understand the urgency for health care reform”. My question is, how did he even find John Barbour, Sarah Purcell, Byron Allen and Bill Rafferty, much less get their opinion on health care reform?

Top Gun

Caleb asks “What kind of a shooting show would interest the general public?” and The History Channel may have an answer (Via Say Uncle). If you are skilled with a pistol, rifle or any other firearm, you could win $100,000 in prizes on TV’s biggest marksmanship competition show. The History Channel and the producers of • Read More »

The Outdoor Channel is coming to Cox Cable

For sure this time! I get channel updates on my TiVo before the channels actually go live, and my TiVo told me yesterday that channel 161 will soon be The Outdoor Channel. Of course, my TiVo also told me to take the Phillies in seven, so you can’t always trust your TiVo.

Robert Gibbs said President Obama did not watch the election results on TV last night. So what did the President watch? The show about a would-be messiahs promising us universal health care and worldwide peace but in reality are nothing soulless aliens bent on destroying our way of life and the utter destruction of our • Read More »

To hope, to change and to serve man

The Miami Herald reviews ABC’s remake of V and finds some very disturbing parallels with today: Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that • Read More »

TV Programming reminder

September 9, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on TV Programming reminder | Filed in: Democrats, Humor, Kevin, Television.

Tonight, you can watch a rank amateur who’s utterly incapable of learning new moves try to win over a hostile audience with some fancy footwork and the same old, tired routine … … or you can watch “So You Think You Can Dance?” on Fox.

A focus group of one

July 27, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on A focus group of one | Filed in: Humor, Kevin, space, Television.

A space adventure from the producers of Grey’s Anatomy that stars Ron Livingstone? If the ravishing Mrs. ExKev were to create a TV show from scratch, it’d look something like that. My perfect show would be something more like Flashpoint mixed with Mythbusters mixed with The Best Defense. With swords. And horses. And Salma Hayek.

Just look at him, clinging to his guns and love of country. Such behavior should immediately be reported to DHS. Have a Happy Fourth tomorrow.
