  • There’s a lot going on in that picture. It was taken at the Texas Pinball Festival in Frisco, Texas. DaughterGeeding is playing a Incredible Hulk pinball game while being filmed by the news, and that’s the original Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, right above her head. Autographs from Ferrigno were $40. We didn’t get an autograph. Oh, and the news didn’t include DaughterGeeding in their segment when it aired. It was neat seeing her get excited about possibly being on TV and then watch her react with an “oh well” when it aired and wasn’t included.
  • That picture was only possible because of the kindness of BoN reader, Rusty, who couldn’t have been friendlier. It was easy to notice he’s a major celebrity in the local pinball arena (everyone knew his name), and he sported a green shamrock suit the entire time. His wife, by the way, wore a tutu, and totally (sham)rocked it.
  • There were about 450 pinball tables and video games combined at the Texas Pinball Festival, all free with the price of admission,
  • At the event the kids had a caricature drawn of them together. DaughterGeeding loved it and remarked how happy she was the artist drew her teeth crooked like they are in real life, not perfect like others.
  • Apple has a new commercial featuring a high school year wearing overalls. I guess overalls are back in style, but I think the kids are wearing them tighter.
  • KFC Canada has a cooking school the public can attend.
  • Lower ranked Texas A&M blew out higher ranked North Carolina, in Charlotte. That’s basically a home game for North Carolina. That’s an impressive win and I guess keeps Bush41’s bracket in tack since he sentimentally picked them to go to the championship game.
  • Bill O’Reilly doing movie reviews for WFAA back in 1976.
  • Well, his wife found the dog and reported it – Football legend Jim Brown rescues Stan Lee’s dog
  • I watched the opening to the television drama that airs right after ’60 Minutes’. It had a Rob Lowe themed party, everyone dressed as a different character the actor has portrayed. Funny bit.
  • Actress Jayne Atkinson is on two Sunday prime time dramas back-to-back, but on different networks – ‘Madam Secretary’ and ‘The Walking Dead’. Many will know her best from her work on ’24’ but I really only took notice of her on the last two seasons of ‘House of Cards’ in which she plays the Secretary of State. She has an exceptional amount of poise she brings to her characters. Interesting fact about her, she offers coaching lessons via Skype.
    • Work on monologues, graduate school auditions, and/or answer questions about the business. For more advanced actors, work on coaching to your weaknesses.
  • GIF – Impressive youth boxing footwork training
  •  It’s confirmed, U2 won’t have any opening acts for their upcoming tour. Despite of that, they still like starting late, about a half hour. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s people showing up late for meetings.
  • The US Navy’s newest submarine comes with an Xbox controller
  • When I first saw this photo it had the caption of “March Madness summed up in one picture.”

    At least DaughterGeeding didn’t get angry, you wouldn’t like her if she was angry.
