• Don’t ever “Wonder,” when you can know for sure…

    Don’t ever “Wonder,” when you can know for sure…

    Professor William Moulton Marston, “Bill” to his friends, and “Charles Moulton” to his fans, was a psychologist who was fascinated with the human mind, and how it works. He also had an affinity for the female mind, but instead of driving himself insane trying to figure out how the female mind works, he simply decided […]

  • Now THAT’S Funny! (Or, at least, it used to be…)

    A few days ago, I talked a little about how the things that I used to think were scary don’t really scare me anymore, now that I’m a grown-ass adult. Similarly, my taste in what I think is funny has changed over the years, too. For the better? Well, that part’s debatable. There’s been something […]

  • It’s Alive.

    I remember back when I was a wee tyke of barely six years old, I saw a trailer on TV for a new film. It started out with a nice, harmless instrumental of “Rock-A-Bye Baby” as a bassinet slowly rotated against a pitch black background. The nice music was then replaced by an ominous-sounding heartbeat […]

  • Let’s Talk About Monkeys.

    I have kind of a love/hate relationship with monkeys. They can be adorable little fluffballs, or complete and total jerk bastards. Most of the time, they are both. Most kids have loved Curious George for generations; Disney’s Abu and Rafiki taught us how to laugh and love; even the monkey from Outbreak was cute, in […]

  • 2017: My Year In Entertainment

    I’m focusing on TV and movies, because when it comes to music, I tend to discover new stuff, only to learn that it came out five or six years ago. Anyway, here’s some of the stuff that entertained me this past year. The Arrowverse (The CW) I love all four of the superhero-themed shows that […]

  • Bright – And the “Will Smith Imbroglio”

    Bright – And the “Will Smith Imbroglio”

    Just finished watching Bright, the new Netflix flick starring Will Smith, Noomi Rapace, and a bunch of CGI. But before I tell you what I thought of that stinkfest, let me explain a little about my relationship with its star, the Fresh Prince himself. Now, when I say “relationship,” keep in mind I’ve never met the […]

  • Yogi’s First Christmas: My Ding-Dang Holiday Traditon

    It’s Christmas Eve, and I and the fam have just finished indulging in one of our many traditions: The annual viewing of the holiday classic, Yogi’s First Christmas. I have watched this cartoon movie every year, without fail, since it first aired in 1980, which means that Yogi Bear has had his “first” Christmas 37 […]

  • Halltime Presents: A Christmassy Christmas for Christmas! (And a wedding.)

    ‘Tis the season for cheesy Christmas rom-coms from Hallmark and/or Lifetime Channel! You can have your Elf, your Miracle on 34th Street, and especially your A Christmas Story (HATE that one), gimme those sappy love stories with a yuletide theme, starring yesterday’s A-listers and TV stars from the good ol’ days. The formula is always […]

  • Quarters From Heaven

    As I was getting out of my parked car to head into my office building for work this morning, I noticed a peculiar sight: The car next to mine had fifty cents on its roof. These two quarters were not on the hood of the car, or the windshield; they were right there on the […]

  • Winter. Pressure.

    Winter. Pressure.

    When the cold of winter finally snaps here in Minnesota, many motorists will find that their vehicles’ tires are in need of a little pumping up. I happen to be driving a recent-model SUV, that conveniently informs me when any of my tires take a little dip in air pressure. That’s where the convenience ends, […]
