Kick Ass Film Review

11/8/2018
More
Friday Film Review: Kick Ass 2010 (Obviously)Warning: "kick ass" expletive is used but only because it is the name of the film. Ried reviews a pretty old film in this episode. In fact, when she watched it there were a few actors that were so young it was odd to watch at first. This movie had TONS of violence, murder and a bit a mayhem. "Did not blow my skirt up" rating on this one. But if you are okay with the violence there are a few jokes that deserve a chuckle and the choreography is...

W.O.W. Sendentary

11/5/2018
More
RR117 Word of the Week: Sedentary Ried after being rendered immobile to a certain extent is diving into the meaning of the word sedentary. What it means, what it does not. She also compares and contrasts sedentary and lazy. Because the synonyms listed are a little wonky. Surprising factoid: the phrase "not in the habit of exercise" i.e. "sedentary lifestyle" as a description has been around since the 1660s.

11/4/2018
More
RR116 Ever wonder why you received text messages and phone calls about political candidates or issues? Isn't it prohibited to send spam text, and calls? Not for "non commercial" reasons it is not.

The Cleanse Film Review

10/31/2018
More
Film Review Friday: The Cleanse RR115 WARNING: use of the word "sucks" in this podcast. Ried is at it again. She watched an independent film with all that they typically bring. The Cleanse is definitely quirky, odd, thought provoking and a little spooky to say the least. If you look deep into this film there seems to be a message there. At least that is what Ried thinks.

W.O.W. Akrasia

10/22/2018
More
RR111 Word of the Week: Akrasia Ever wonder why we do things that are bad for us? Smoking, drinking too much, staying up too late? Ried does not have the answer but she knows what it is called and that is our word for this week. Learn how akrasia relates to philosophy and is not a synonym for procrastination.

Deadpool 2 Film Review

RR109 Film Review Friday: Deadpool 2 EXPLETIVE WARNING: kick ass, pissed off (and perhaps others that may have been missed.) Not only did Ried finally get around to watching Deadpool 2, she watched it two nights in a row; partially to give you this review. How many ways to die? Let's count them. Ried got a count of seven, the husband disagrees. What do you think? Definitely watch this one if you are into the Marvel franchise, Ryan Reynolds and super hero stuff. But stay away if potty humor...

W.O.W. Trepidation

10/15/2018
More
RR108 Word of the Week: Trepidation Ried looks at the definition for trepidation and although Cambridge and Oxford English dictionaries "basically" have the same definition the important difference is "may" vs. "going" ...to happen. She gets a little excited and her errant thoughts may be a little more vocal in this episode but still here is a new word that will be easy to add into your vocabulary.

W.O.W. Rubicon

10/9/2018

Word of the Week: Rubicon RR105 18.1010 This word seems to have a little bit of an identity crisis. Is it a story of Julius Cesar? Is it a way to score in a card game? Is it an easy way to refer to crossing the line...what ever that line is.... Ried goes over the origin of the word Rubicon and offers a few examples to make a bit easier to understand.

Truth vs. Trust

RR104 Truth vs. Trust Warning: God is used in this one a few times. This past week I was at work and fielded a call from a girl who wanted to know if her fiance made a purchase from the shop or attended a seminar in the venue space. She was checking up on him because he had been acting weird. Give a listen to find out what happened. Truth and trust are different but it is good if they go together.

RR103 Film Review Friday: NextGen WARNING: Expletive "SmartAss"; Spoiler @5:33 (or so). Plus we lost a few seconds due to the glitch in the software. But you still get the weekly dose of movie review a la Ried. This movie did not blow the skirt up but still worth the watch if you like CGA and plucky comic relief. In this movie it goes by the name of Momo. Moral of the story could be: Remember the best parts of people you love. Like, share, comment, subscribe: https://riedrants.com/...

Expletive warning: Asshat RR101 Feminism and Identity...less than I had hoped on feminism but Ried still managed to talk about how it is okay to be you and the opinion of others is best considered meaningless chatter. Ried had cut back on the research for the show while she is in business boot camp...along with work, along with surgery coming up and the usual housekeeping involved in life in general. We hope that you all will stay with us during this busy time. Like, share, comment,...
