I just saw this new video, “Freedom Never Cries,” I’d been listening to this song on Five For Fighting’s new album and I never really got the whole “flag to a pawnshop” idea. The lyrics don’t convey the action which the main character takes at the end of the video. The song makes more sense …

Small load this week. Countdown to Final Crisis #5: I knew it. I knew it last week as soon as Hal Jordan did something so dumb as to spread a disease to other planets. It’s not our Earth. What a cop out. Still, it’s a creepily-told story that does a good job of setting up …
Tonight, while I planted seeds in my seed trays, I popped in one of my favorite movies, “Dark City”. I noticed something I hadn’t really focused on before. If you haven’t seen it…buy it using my purchase link, there, then watch it and come on back. I’m going to talk about something that’s pretty much …
Don’t tase me, Peep! The Lord of the Peeps (THIS was a lot of work!) UPDATE: Last year’s dioramas.
Who would you cast?
Thanks to Seth for the link. We’re in for a rough month, so thank goodness for this relief.
Parts 2 and 3 of my G.I. Joe article are on their way. After that, I’ll be doing some reviews: “Matamoros”, “Homeland” and a DVD review that’s overdue. Sorry for the lack of content today. I’ve been super-busy at work with a shopping cart system we’re designing.
Again, the way this works is I give you the brief rundown of my immediate thoughts about this week’s comics. PVP #39 – You know what? I don’t know why I’m buying this. I started years ago when Scott would alter the stories, improve the artwork, fix typos, etc. These days, this is just stuff …
“Britney’s New Look” is the most powerful episode since “Trapped in the Closet”. Dennis Miller will be pleased. If you missed it, you should try to catch it when it’s repeated on Thursday and then all through the weekend.
There’s an interesting article about George Miller’s efforts to get his Justice League movie made in Australia. It’s a lot of fuss about how the movie isn’t about Australia, so Australia won’t give a big tax discount to make the movie there. (Heck, show Flash running past that clam-shaped opera house while he’s running around …
I know, I said Sheena Easton below. And Lady J does generally look like Sheena Easton. However, I knew this shot looked familiar! It reminds me of Pat Benatar’s…ugh, TWENTY-SIX-YEARS-OLD music video. (Oh, I’m so old.) This was from back in the early days when music videos had plots and themes and storylines. Anyway, the …
Few men can truly be called a giant of their field. Mr. Clarke was one of them. I have no doubt he has transcended to…something wonderful. Obits: Times UK AP/Foxnews
I know I haven’t posted in a while. The reason is, I’ve been preparing a major, lengthy post on G.I. Joe. To prepare your palate, I thought I’d start you off with an appetizer. A little history here to those of you who don’t know the story of G.I. Joe inside and out (and can’t …
UPDATE: This may be a HOAX. This guy is in so much trouble. A dude dressed as a pointy-hatted lawn gnome is terrifying a town. Dude! Do you know how long the stature-challenged persons community has been fighting for respectability? They’ve been struggling against the whole culture of little people being leprechauns and elves for …
Stoner Dawn Wells, age 69, 64 inches tall, has been arrested for driving under the influence in a car reeking of pot. So, the stories of Dawn Wells being the drug connection for the late Bob Denver were true after all? Huh.
Dave Stevens, the artist whose creator-owned glossy tribute to the pulp art of yesteryear, “The Rocketeer”, led both to a movie deal and a resurgence of interest in the model Bettie Page, has passed away of leukemia. Newsarama has more about it, while writer Mark Evanier has a splendid tribute to his friend. Sorry to …
The creators of the classic Mystery Science Theatre 3000, known for it’s explotation of bad movies, have found a new target. Namely, BAD CARTOONS!
This old article got me thinking…. There are a lot of TV shows that I’d love to be able to get my hands on in a DVD format. I’m not just talking about the hit shows that are bizarrely unavailable such as any further “King of the Hill” collections or the criminally-unavailable “Night Court”. (I …
Here it is!
