RIP Kevin Conroy

Rest in Peace Judy Tenuta

Crap! We lost the giver goddess, petite flower, Diet Dr. Pepper spokesperson, accordion aficionado and all around hilarious person. I had been following her on her Twitter feed so I knew Judy was undergoing treatment for cancer. I didn’t know … Continue reading

Cartoon and Cable Television history were made on this day! Oddly, I was living in a market lucky enough to have it on day one. I used to feel the same way about the Sci-Fi Channel but everybody soured on … Continue reading

Twenty-five years of Las Vegas, post mortem

1992: Gen Con 25

My beloved Gen Con was last weekend and I’m shocked they made masks along with proof of vaccination mandatory. Indiana is a moron state ruled by a local branch of Amerika’s Taliban and there is a pathetic segment of gamers … Continue reading

RIP Julee Cruise

Very sad to see the news today and especially how Julie was suffering from lupus, so she was in serious pain. I read this tribute to her via the The Guardian to discover what a career Julee did beyond Twin Peaks which … Continue reading
