Happy posthumous birthday to Robin Williams

Today would’ve been his 70th birthday and we really needed him during the Girth Vader years to make us intelligent and empathetic people cope better. I do feel somewhat bad about liking Robin again near the end of his life … Continue reading

RIP: Clarence Williams III & Ned Beatty

These gentlemen were staples on both screens in the Seventies. Clarence got his start in the Sixties with the groundbreaking cop show The Mod Squad on ABC. Three undercover officers who were young enough looking to infiltrate evil gangs of Hippies … 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 Felix Silla

One would rarely recognize the actor in public, but we all know the characters he played the years thanks to his diminutive height. In the Sixties, he was Cousin Itt on The Addams Family and the child ape who spotted Taylor … Continue reading

RIP James Hampton

James was a Brian Dennehy character actor. You recognize his face. You remember him being in a couple movies and/or TV shows yet you can’t name the poor guy. And maybe that was just fine with James because he had … Continue reading

RIP Anne Beatts

Anne is a name well-known to comedy nerds and maybe she rings a bell if you watched the Netflix movie A Futile and Stupid Gesture; she was portrayed by Natasha Lyonne. As per the movie, Anne got started as a writer … Continue reading

How I miss Paul Lynde’s wit

April Fools’ Day is one of my favorite holidays! It provided musical inspiration too. Last year I whipped together some pretty bitchin’ Halloween and Xmas mixes which I hadn’t done in years. Now I pieced together my inaugural April Fools’ … Continue reading

1991: Comedy Central “begins”

The name came several months later because there was already a channel called the Comedy Network in Canada. Leave it to the Executive Caste to overlook a simple detail before rebranding. However, the date is semi-historic as the two floundering … Continue reading

RIP Jessica Walter

So sad to see Jessica go. Although many remember her best as the mean-ass matriarch from Arrested Development, she will always be the crazy, racist head of ISIS (Archer) and decades earlier, the obsessed fan in Play Misty for Me. Good thing she … Continue reading

Here’s to the future that was!

One of my favorite Adult Swim shows from the initial launch is March’s header. I held off celebrating the crew’s misadventures to now because a vaccine rollout (January) and Chinese New Year (February) were more pressing…or would it be relevant. If … 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

RIP Cloris Leachman

Another stalwart of Mel Brooks’ comedies but also a heavy hitter when it came to drama since Cloris won an Oscar® for The Last Picture Show, a movie keep trying to see but put off. TCM’s 30 Days of Ocsars is coming up, … 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
