Farewell iPod: 2001 to 2022

I think the number one reason for the iPod’s demise is the rise of streaming and improved cellular/wireless availability. Jennifer has some kind of unlimited plan which enables her to play a music service through her phone constantly. Throw in … Continue reading

Seeing Red: Must See

Rather bummed that Disney didn’t have the confidence to release this semi-original idea in theaters exclusively as they do with the MCU stuff. It was stronger than Luca (the Little Italian Mermaid) and about on par with Inside/Out or Soul, the last two near-perfect movies … Continue reading

RIP Taylor Hawkins

Sad to hear about him passing but all the substances in his blood should never come as a surprise. Touring is hard. With any incarnation of show business, the public expects you to always be “on.” What I’m mostly surprised … Continue reading

Meet my Mission Hill avatar or self?

I know what you’re thinking! You’re thinking, “What? How exactly is that you? You also look like a dirty Hippie! Is this some kind of fantasy?” The short answer is, NO. I despise Hippies since the majority were Boomers and … 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

“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

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

The Sparks Brothers: Must See*

* – If you love music in any capacity, you better see this. Otherwise, the rest of the world can wait until streaming services carry it. Despite this documentary being a huge love letter to one of greatest duos in … 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

RIP Paul Mooney

It has been a rough week in comedy since we lost the other master of the deadpan delivery and a pioneer in Comedy for the world, not just Black Americans. Paul was at Cap City a few years ago during … 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
