Concerted Efforts Part 1: The Fifth Best Audience In The World!

With the holidays reasonably in our rearview mirrors and the possibility of summer concert tours mistily ahead of us, I would like to take a moment to halfheartedly exaggerate what I remember about some of the concerts that I have had the good fortune to see in person.  Keep in mind that I am aging rapidly, …

The Seven Deadly Citizens On Patrol: An Examination Of Faults, Misdeeds, and Police Academy

The Seven Seas.  The Seven Dwarves.  The Magnificent Seven.  The Seven Continents.  Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.  All these sevens have two things in common: 1) They all involve having more than six, but less than eight of something and 2) They are all fictional.  (C’mon…Asia and Europe are the same landmass.  Call it Eurasia …

Go Go Godzilla Went Went Away

(Author’s note: This was originally written back hundreds of years ago in the lovely days of November 2014.  Since Hollywood believes in bringing forth nothing new, I thought I wouldn’t either!  Well, that’s not exactly true.  I’ve reedited this a tad and added some pictures, which the original post didn’t have, and spiffed it up …

How I Saved Lucasfilm and Star Wars: A Primer

The Marx of Caddyshack

One of my most favoritest films of all time is Caddyshack, which turned 40 years old last year.  The version I came to love was taped from Channel 18 in Milwaukee, commercial breaks and all.  But even without the occasional language and pleasant nudity, I came to enjoy this as a comedy work of art.  …

Is There A Future To Get Back To?

Since we’re now into this new year of 2021, I have decided to address an issue that certainly has troubled me as I’m sure it has bothered countless thousands of millions over the past decades.  What I’m about to dive into might offend some, delight others, cause hunger in a few, instill mild apathy in …
