Josh Drespling: The fridge makes a pretty cool child’s art gallery
In most every home in America there stands a great monument to the art of our children and/or grandchildren. It doubles as a giant box for storing food and keeping things cold, or perhaps even frozen.
Josh Drespling: I can’t predict Fox’s future, but I hope we go ‘Back’
The year was 1985 and the song, “We are the World,” was bombarding everybody with its message of hope. The worldwide Live Aid concerts raised millions of dollars for famine relief in Africa. Ronald Reagan, the actor, was president of these great United States.
Josh Drespling: As ‘Buried’ proves, sometimes brilliance is thinking INSIDE the box
Have you ever seen a film that was so intense and enthralling that the images, emotions, and concepts stuck with you for years upon years?
Josh Drespling: Recalling a pain I hope you never copy
Prepare yourself as I unfold a tale of misery and pain that has befallen my mortal body. It is a story that has made many others wince in pain as I relay my experience to them. I felt it only appropriate to allow you to feel the same sensations my friends did as they bore witness to my pain.
Josh Drespling: Wishing your days away? Think like a first-grader
Schooooool’s back forever! Despite Alice Cooper's cries of school being out forever and being blown to pieces, we will, in fact, have to endure another nine treacherous months of pencils, rulebooks, and teacher's dirty looks.
Josh Drespling: Is boredom the gateway to greatness? We’ll see
Have you ever had one of those days where you are perfectly content to be bored? You feel listless and perhaps a bit jaded by your surroundings. You undoubtedly have a mountain of things that you need to accomplish, but procrastination has become paramount.
Josh Drespling: You had me at ‘hello’ — now just keep walking
Why do we humans feel a compulsion to acknowledge other humans who happen across our path? Why do we feel it necessary to greet a total stranger if his or her eyes accidentally meet with ours?
Josh Drespling: With my new hobby, I might as well buy out the Post Office
I suppose I must admit that I have acquired another hobby. It's not as though I was sitting and staring at the walls and drooling in utter boredom. This new activity, much like many of the endeavors in my life, was more of an I-can-do-this scenario than anything else.
Josh Drespling: Thanks, Grandma Jo, for everything
August 1 is my maternal grandmother's birthday. This year she will mark her 85th year (although she doesn't look or act a day over 50). Somehow, this date always sneaks up on me. I have even missed it a few times in the past, and I feel quite bad for not recognizing her on her special day.
Josh Drespling: Ooh, yuk! I just couldn’t reveal a nasty secret — was I wrong?
I was told I was a horrible person. Although it was a playful jab, I felt bad for doing what I did. I'm about to unfold a tale for you, and I swear that every word is true. Your job is to weigh both sides of the story and carefully examine the facts to determine if, in fact, I am a terrible person for my actions (or lack thereof).
