Bob’s Burgers the Movie: Must See!

I’m putting this movie ahead of my stalled queue entailing all the crap I’m behind on, it’s a short list since Covid and money kept me from hitting Alamo very much in 2021. Bob’s Burgers the Movie will probably be … Continue reading

RIP Ric Parnell, aka Spinal Tap’s Mick Shrimpton

Ric was best known as the band’s drummer who suffered the comical fate of exploding near the end of the movie. It was the conclusion to a long-running gag about Spinal Tap having the worst luck with drummers constantly dying. … Continue reading

AS I WISH Part One

It is the 35th Anniversary of The Princess Bride and the MacFarlane toy company made these awesome action figures. Each has 22 points of articulation but sadly, they’re both right-handed so you can’t do the duel accurately. Well, maybe I could … Continue reading

RIP Sally Kellerman

It’s sad to see yet another person who contributed to Star Trek pass away. Sure, most of you cool kids know her as the original Major “Hot Lips” Houlihan in MASH the film but Sally played Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in the second Star Trek … Continue reading

RIP: The Amazing Jonathan & Mark Lanegan

A sad day for entertainment in general. A big loss for Comedy and another for Music. These two people weren’t super famous but they contributed to those who capitalized on the work they laid down. First up would be The … Continue reading

RIP Ivan Reitman

Ivan has a rather checkered record for me. He was involved with some major movies as a producer, writer and director which are a part of the West’s lexicon and shared experience. I just don’t find the majority to be … Continue reading

Futurama is back baby! Again, no wait, maybe, take your pick

Yesterday’s announcement stating that Hulu ordered 20 new episodes of Futurama on the day Netflix released Disenchantment‘s latest 10 (making it the fourth season), sounded rather auspicious to me. Does this mean Disenchantment is over given how impatient Netflix is? They have cancelled … Continue reading

RIP Howard Hesseman

Sad to see him pass. Glad I met him briefly at WizWorld with Lonnie Anderson. I could blame him partially for my bad career/college choices via Dr. Johnny Fever; I wanted to be a DJ or work in radio. It … 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

A D&D Commercial that’s too on the nose

 To be fair, I was this excited and filled with anticipation when I first got to play in seventh grade. The difference? I grew out of it because I was saddled as the Dungeonmaster as soon as I got … Continue reading

Welcome to December 2021!

I decided to just “catch up” and fill in the missing dates in between, again, instead of being like that newspaper from Colonial Days in New England I learned about in college; The publisher only had so much space and … Continue reading

RIP Norm Macdonald

What a pisser! Much like Andy Kaufman, I thought his suddenly reported death was a joke since it seemed like him. Sadly, it was true as he had been fighting cancer for a decade. Norm hid it very well. There’s … Continue reading

[adult swim] is now 20

I talked about it in greater length a decade ago here. Amazingly, the part-time network is still going strong despite all the cord cutting because I think [adult swim] has made the transition to streaming. If not, it’s made a … Continue reading

September 2021 is here but school starting varies

Back in July, I celebrated Aliens turning 35. In honor of starting Marquette 35 years ago, I decided to go with Rodney Dangerfield’s most successful movie. I tweaked the colors to be more in line with my alma mater. It’s not … Continue reading
