2001: The Simpsons Season One on DVD debuts!

I clearly remember buying this during my lunch hour from a nearby Best Buy, just not the exact day other than it probably was a Tuesday when all new media used to arrive. A DVD player had joined my household … Continue reading

2006: Twitter begins

Of all the Social Media platforms, I like this one best. FeceBook is just ads, ads, ads and more prone to having you discover which relatives and old friends have become right-wing, Kool-Aid drinking MAGAts…or worse, selfish Libertarian pricks. It’s … Continue reading

Rot in Hell Donald Rumsfeld

He was one of the architects of the continued mess America is in. Still waiting for those Arabs to welcome us as liberators while they kill our soldiers with mines and bullets. Rummy helped pump up the lie about Iraq … Continue reading

Harold and Kumar go to White Castle 2021 edition

So pissed I couldn’t find my original review of this flick from 2004 (pre-Weblog format) because I did spend the money at the terrible Cinemark outside my house. Hell, I cannot remember if I liked, hated or thought meh of this. … Continue reading

2001: Mac OS X available

The great leap forward for the PowerPC-based Mac finally happened and it wasn’t smooth nor painless. Many critics called it a paid-public beta; a very old accusation of every OS or application. All the powers-that-be at Apple knew this too … Continue reading

RIP Marc Wilmore (belated)

Damned Twitter! Found out through fellow Producer Mike Reiss that Marc died last week from CV-19. Life is unfair all to often since Orange Foolius and his legions remain free and not in prison where they belong while a person … Continue reading

2001: On The Media begins

This weekend, the one podcast I have religiously listen to since…I can’t remember. Let’s just say when iTunes (now divided into Music and Podcasts) first added the ability to subscribe to podcasts. Checking the Internet, iTunes 4.9 which was about … Continue reading

Wild Hogs blech

This was another Jennifer pick I put off writing about due to laziness/complacency. She likes it because she’s a big fan of William H Macy which is cool, he’s a great actor. Sadly, he’s in the horrible dud alongside the … Continue reading

RIP Alex Trebek

If there’s an afterlife, poor Alex is now being mobbed by a million senior citizens like my grandmother who religiously watched Jeopardy. That game show, her soaps and Lawrence Welk. It was just easier to hand her the remote than to argue. … Continue reading

The Cooler

While Jennifer is walking me through all the Netflix-available seasons of Shameless, she introduced me to this movie I somehow overlooked a couple decades ago. I dig movies set in Las Vegas with two exceptions…The Hangover, not funny; Leaving Las Vegas, super … Continue reading
