Why I don’t miss cable/satellite TV 2022

I’m only a fair-weathered sports fan, aka I tend to watch Packers’ games when they play the Bears or they’re in the playoffs. However, I would say that meme is spot-on whenever I watch Fox’s Animation Domination Sundays or Futurama‘s brief … Continue reading

Painfully true with many fan boys

I’ve never understood the “political” accusation. A gay couple kissing on TV has little to do with politics since there are gay men with horrendous Right-Wing politics: Roy Cohn, Peter Thiel and we all know even if he doesn’t…Lindsey Graham. … Continue reading

RIP Betty White

So here is my obligatory obituary for Betty as she did have an effect on my life well before the fad involving her got rolling a decade ago. I recall seeing her on The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the Seventies … Continue reading

RIP John Madden

I thought a little levity was necessary over John’s passing. Above is a glitch from EA’s Madden ’92 whenever an injured player needed to be carried off the field. Now as for my knowledge and fandom of football, well it’s not … Continue reading

RIP Michael Nesmith

Michael was definitely an underlined and under appreciated talent all because he chose to be in the Pre-Fab Four, what in today’s lingo is called a Boy Band: BTS, Backstreet Boys, Menudo, etc. He probably nailed the audition due to … Continue reading

RIP Dean Stockwell

A really cool actor passed away over the weekend and from reading other obits about him, I would’ve never guessed that Dune (1984) was his comeback after being a tad blacklisted for being part of Dennis Hopper’s whacky crew. Dean’s brief … Continue reading

Welcome to November 2021!

Originally I was going to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Call of Cthulhu debuting as a roleplaying game but it wouldn’t be sincere. I’ve only played the game a few times and I am trying to get more familiar with it because … Continue reading

Best obscure Star Trek costume-reference EVER!

The fan who did this one was a genius! Even though the alien was only shown once and on a rather lame and early episode…”The Corbomite Maneuver,” (sad I know it), which also had Cliff Howard as the guest star…its … Continue reading

1971: The Electric Company

Holy Buckets! I hadn’t thought about this PBS program in years and today was its anniversary. Growing up in the Seventies, The Electric Company was must-see TV after you “graduated” from Sesame Street and/or found Mr. Rogers too patronizing; today, I revere him … Continue reading

“Realistic” superheroes from different angles

Sorry, I’m really running behind on what’s current or contemporary TV or movies. It was a crazy Summer…no wait, I’m only partially sorry because I planned on spending much more time on my house. Then in the near future, it … Continue reading

RIP Peter Scolari

It was a shame to hear he passed away yesterday. I saw the news via Twitter first and it got me to thinking about what he’d been doing lately. He won an Emmy for playing a parent in HBO’s Girls! Pretty amazing. … Continue reading

Italian #54: Chelsea Peretti

I will conclude the string of comedians with Chelsea. I saw her at the first Moontower through a showcase hosted by Dana Gould and I really liked her material. She’s probably the most recognizable I’ve covered this year through her run … Continue reading

1996: Fox News begins and never stops lying

Twenty-five years ago, Murdoch and his minions felt the other corporate-owned networks were too far to the Left and/or Liberal. Mainly in how Clinton was skating toward a second term against Dole. Obvioulsy this meant there was a “media bias,” … Continue reading

Italian #53: Natasha Leggero

Natasha Leggero has been quite busy these days. For several years she co-starred in a parody of all those Victorian shows everybody goes ape shit for, Downton Abbey…blech! Could the Anglophilia be any grosser? Hers was called Another Period and co-starred … Continue reading

Italian #52: Joe DeRosa

Joe DeRosa is a hilarious comedian who you may recognize as the veterinarian Dr. Caldera from Better Call Saul; he sells Mike Ehrmantraut animal medications which work on people. Given how Mike is a scary ex-cop who does criminal things (aka Gus … Continue reading
