The 25 or However Many Days of 007 DAY 1: Viewing To Killing

Hello and incandescent greetings of mirth and whimsy and zeitgeists!  Once again I am taking to the ether of the interwebs to start a series that will truly test the limits of patience among most carbon-based lifeforms, several recliners, and most commemorative spoon collections that were collected after 1974.  Yes, I am challenging myself to …

Have A Merry Thanksgiving, Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Alka-Seltzer As Much As The Stuffing

While we are in the midst of the holiday season, let us take time to reflect.  During the month of November, we have the fact that Christmas is coming force fed into our cakeholes with all the delicacy of an asphalt smasher on the freeway.  Christmas is definitely coming; I have a calendar so I …

Almost Equal Sequels Part III: A Shot In The Dark

This sometimes updated, always indifferent series has been a tremendous success!  So because there’s precious little else to do in-between facing earth-shattering poverty or death by breathing or maybe both, I thought I’d upchuck another entry!  Perhaps I can generate even more enthusiasm by ending my third straight sentence with an exclamation point!  Yeah!  Actually, …

Almost Equal Sequels Part II: Fletch Lives

Given the rollicking (and by rollicking I flipping mean rollicking!) success of this half-hearted series, I have decided to go back to the well and bring out another earlier entry!  Yes, another sequel!  About sequels!  You see I too have fallen prey to the demands of the public and am going for the cash grab …

Almost Equal Sequels Part I: Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment

(Yes, yes, I know, I know, this is Part 1, remodeled and reconfigured from my previous blog.  Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?  Oh and I’ve reedited a bit too.  You’re rewelcome!) In an effort to stand out from the protesting hordes who might be a trifle jaded about Hollywood’s love of sequels, I have decided to …

The Greatest Pumpkin Story Ever Told

Belief is a peculiar thing.  Just the very act of having faith is an incredible achievement.  Sure, science can come along like an all-knowing bully with a big smug tape ball on its glasses and human logic can easily dictate like Mussolini, but sheer raw belief can overtake both of those, disregardless of their respective …

Almost Equal Sequels Part VI: Psycho II

Yet another week in October?  That means we need to take the time to focus on the reason for the season: horror sequels that aren’t that bad!  No, really!  They are a delight!  And thankfully, there are hundreds, if not billions of them to peruse. Again, thanks to those of you out there in the …

Almost Equal Sequels Part V: Dracula’s Daughter

Another week in October!  That means we need to take the time to focus on the reason for the season: horror sequels that aren’t that bad!  Oh and since you probably won’t have trick-or-treating, since the world has been taken over by the children of the town leaders in Footloose who somehow crossbred with the …

Almost Equal Sequels Part IV: Halloween II

Has it really been since July since I’ve had a blog entry? Gosh, I wish more was going on in the world today so I’d have something to irreverently comment about.  I should be more responsible.  This is why I could never adopt a highway.  The state would see how little I would emotionally and …

The Return of A Full Rich Blather!

Despite the overwhelming odds, vitriolic disparaging, crippling ennui, and mild rage, the Blather returns looking shinier and prettier than ever before...again! Yes, folks, here we are and here we go. Looks pretty snazzy, doesn't it? I concur. Even this font bespeaks of the cream colored pages that you would find in a quirky, off beat …
