The people, They Like the Tom Cruise
You got your actors, then you got your movie stars.
Actors are all over the place. You recognize them, you follow their work, hell, you may even watch some movies just because of them.
But they aren't movie stars.
A movie star is something different. Movie stars are people like Jimmy Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, Carey Grant, Lauren Bacall, Catherine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn... those are movie stars.
There's always an air of... almost otherworldliness about them.
Their movies are always a big deal just because they are in them, and they make a lot, A LOT of money.
So, is Tom Cruise an actor or a moviestar? I'll give you a spoiler, if you don't think he's a movie star... you're trying to prove something.
This week we discuss mister Cruise in an effort to see what the big damned deal is.
Also, we are trying to have a new weekly segment that requires your assistance. Call our Google Voice number at (512) 666-RANT (7268) and leave a message about your worst experience in a theater. That message will be transformed into comic GOLD by the power of Google Voice's text preview, voice recognition translation. Listen to this and last weeks show and you will see what we mean.
And we are still raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association on behalf of our little buddy Amadeo Andrade who was diagnosed with Becker Muscular Dystrophy in 2008. Last year, as a team, we raised $23,800 in support of Amadeo for MDA! This year our team goal is $25,000. We will be raising money until February of 2013. Anything will help and be appreciated, and remember all donations are tax deductible!
This year we are Amadeo's ARMY. Not team. Not club. Not group. ARMY! So lets show a great kid just how bad ass Thug fans are.

Also here is the link to the team page if you would like to read a little about Amadeo:
