    A Burleson Church Accidentally Made an R-Rated Movie

    Pastor Chuck Kitchens sees God's hand at work in the creation of My Son, the first feature film produced by Burleson's Retta Baptist Church. As he's told the religious press, it was the Lord who placed its director, a 31-year-old film editor named Jarod O'Flaherty, in the pews every Sunday. It was t ... More >>

    Six Epic Songs That Would Make Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows More Epic

    "Annddd I Woullld Doo Annyything for Love..."​To answer a question that may be gurgling in your mind: Yes, we are big Harry Potter fans. After the movies' scope became somehow more massive after Prisoner of Azkaban (and proceeded to assuage the loss we felt post-LOTR), we just couldn't help but be ... More >>

    Take A Shelling

    How many ways are there to prepare shrimp? Been awhile since Forrest Gump's friend Bubba cataloged them all. But if you're interested ticking a few off the list, check out this weekend's "Salute to Shellfish" at Central Market, featuring fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, grilled shrimp, and even a little ...

    Whitt's End

    *I seem to be fresh out of cash, but I'll betcha some leftover Christmas fruitcake that the Cowboys don't win in Philly Sunday. A team that leads the league in penalties, can't get in sync on something as simple as the center-quarterback snap, and allows the longest back-to-back running plays in NFL ... More >>

    Wednesday Morning Wake and Bake

    15 UNT football players found a unique way to show school spirit. The first sip: As Richie pointed out yesterday, somehow Todd Dodge’s job is safe as UNT football coach despite an 0-8 start and a defense that ranks dead last in the nation in points allowed per game. Perhaps the team’s struggles ... More >>

    Dean Karnazes is running, running, running into the record books. Us, we can barely bother to drive anywhere these days, much less run. Like Forrest Gump, one day Dean Karnazes (rhymes with oh-NASS-is) just started running. And so far, he hasn't stopped. If you're looking for a kook crazier than Ter ... More >>
