Blog Update: Custom Domain & New Blog Title

You may notice that the URL above is different, as I just purchased RyanKantor.com. If you go to the old URL (RyansRantsandTommysTirades.Wordpress.com) it’ll just redirect you here, so no harm done. Tommy has spun off his own blog about movies, so I thank him for helping me get started, and getting some traction on this … Continue reading

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, and a Ridiculous Survey

Dr. Johnny Skinz’s Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head, that’s the working title for the Red Hot Chili Peppers new album. It’s a little silly. Well actually it’s really stupid, but I’m excited nonetheless. I’ve finally found a release date. Looks like sometime this August. Incubus also has a new album coming out on July 12th. … Continue reading

Black Swan: The Most Overdone Movie of All Time?

I thought the trailer looked terrible, so I didn’t see it in theaters.

Inception Review (Not a Spoiler)

Yesterday was move-in day at Clemson. I’m finally back “where the Blue Ridge yawns its greatness,”  and it is very good to be back. Luckily, I saw Inception right before the summer ended. Easily the movie of the summer, and probably the best movie in a couple of years, Inception came out on July 16, 2010 and … Continue reading

First Blog Post

Welcome to Ryan’s Rants and Tommy’s Tirades! Despite the scary name, this blog won’t be all arguments and the name may change shortly. So, Tommy Dianora and I (Ryan Kantor) will be sharing a blog. I was born in California to New Yorker parents and grew up in the south, so I am proud to say I am … Continue reading
