RIP Will Vinton

His name may ring a bell at first but let me fill you in on why. Will is the guy who “invented” Claymation, aka Animation via clay. He wasn’t necessarily the first person to use stop-motion techniques with clay-based objects, … Continue reading

Lost 80s Live

This festival tour slash concert was one of the holdups on getting off my duff to get cranking on my site with new stories. It was a concert Somara, Ayako and I went to see for the heck of it. … Continue reading

Down but not out or alone

The first culprit on why the site was “dark” for another week can be blamed on the flu. Although I got a flu shot last Friday, I did ask the nurse, I’ve gotten sick despite being inoculated. The response was, … Continue reading

New shirt from WizWorld #4: The Hormone Monster!

Big Mouth‘s imaginary advisor to Nick and Andrew is one of the funniest thing Nick Kroll has actually done, I often find his other stuff a bit weak. Either way, it’s great to have this character which is part satyr … Continue reading

RIP Paul Allen

Paul wasn’t as famous as Bill Gates or Steve Ballmer being the number three guy at Microsoft but he will always remain essential to the history of personal computing. He was also pretty savvy too. Paul left Microsoft in 1982 … Continue reading

RIP Geoff Emerick

Another late obituary I wanted to post because Geoff was an instrumental man in the evolution of Pop/Rock music. He may be most famous for being the engineer at Abbey Road during the Beatles’ run of albums but to me … Continue reading

The Predator: Streaming…at best

Everyone’s big-game-hunting alien(s) return in the latest installment of the Predator saga. What’s new this time? Not very much other than their race can be over ten-feet tall. Shane Black takes a shot at directing and in my opinion he came … Continue reading

End of a long week

This week was a huge let down in the intelligent, educated (ergo, Librul) parts of Texas. The twin specters of the entrenched Confederacy and lazy non-voters handed my adopted home another four yeas of tyranny under the Republicans. They don’t … Continue reading

This month’s header, They Live turns 30

Given our current state of affairs, it’s only appropriate to celebrate John Carpenter’s social commentary masterpiece, released on this day. The header took a little work to get it to work and I found this anti-Trump one weeks ago. No … Continue reading

Culture Club with Tom Bailey

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. It’s…you went to see Boy George this Summer? Really? I went for two other reasons. The first was this show being a joint trip with my friend and co-worker Ayako who likes Culture Club. … Continue reading

RIP Norm Breyfogle

Norm passed away a couple months ago but he’s worth mentioning because his Batman comics were a big part of my life when I was a collector. His style was very loose with the cape flowing when Batman was jumping … Continue reading
