Ugh, even Darth Vader does it

Even Darth Vader can’t get one of his officers or Stormtroopers to take the picture for him. To me “selfies” create a weird perspective and amplify the dick moves many Americans are prone to doing.

Dave Attell

A sold-out show in Austin with Dave Attell! Years ago, he used to have a show on Comedy Central called Insomniac in which he’d travel to a particular city to explore what there was to do from late evening until dawn. … Continue reading

RIP Garry Shandling

A damned shame Garry died suddenly because he was a quiet, unsung hero of comedy but it wasn’t always that way. When I first saw him, he was in the same camp as Billy Crystal, a rather boring Johnny Carson … Continue reading

Pinup shirt!

Not sure what the context is from the episode, I’ve only seen about first three of the current season, but hey, any cheesecake of Dr. Girlfriend makes me laugh.

Belated birthday fun for Liliana

Another fun time at Pinballz but it’s even better when I get to celebrate with the little people. I have to get another generation into arcade games or else I’ll have no place to hang out should I live long … Continue reading

Anthrax

Update: A story that was overlooked due to my illness (the flu and whatnot) near the beginning of 2016. Before the release of their latest album For All Kings which is being praised as the Metal album of 2016 (is there such … Continue reading

Two Justice League videos that sucked stylistically

We’re about a week away from the upcoming Batman v. Superman movie which may either be really awesome or incredibly awful. There’s very little in-between for superhero flicks with the obscene budgets they have. I want it to be good … Continue reading

No shamrock shakes this year

That or I’m going to the wrong McDonald’s every single time. Maybe I should just buy a good vanilla shake somewhere else and put green food-coloring in it. In other funny news, NYC’s police force will be easing up on … Continue reading

Night of the Comet

I missed out on Night of the Comet in theaters around 1984 but enjoyed the hell out of it when it made its debut on Showtime the following Christmas. I think the film was whipped together to take advantage of the Halley’s … Continue reading

Gamers’ Weekend 2016

Update: A story that was overlooked due to my illness (the flu and whatnot) near the beginning of 2016. A rather nice tradition started by the old gaming group I used to belong to and this year I finally took the … Continue reading

My new Bugs Bunny watch!

Watch OS 2 finally brought the ability to have the watch face I wanted, my personal hero and totem animal/character in this pushy world. I didn’t have him on there right away but Somara took the time to work on … Continue reading

Check out my brother’s company’s app

The product they write/develop is called Cola Bubbles, you can find out more here. Nice timing on how it was posted on the Apple iTunes Store on his birthday last Friday. It’s free so I don’t get any money for … Continue reading

Westworld, the original

This is a movie I have always seen somewhere around the middle but never from the beginning. I scored a cheap DVD of it in the last year in anticipation of HBO’s overdue, behind-schedule show which will lengthen the story … Continue reading

RIP Keith Emerson

Another Prog Rock founder passes away. Keith was the guy who made the keyboardist the lead musician for the Seventies (I would go with Booker T for the Sixties) but I readily admit to having a blind spot before the … Continue reading
