Okay this is where I've been the last few weeks and more or less what I've been up to and through for that matter. About a month ago I began feeling listless, had no appetite, and was sleeping about 2 hours of every day.
I got very weak after a couple of weeks of this and you have to understand that my daily routine includes jacking myself into the air with a sling and chain hoist upon arising and after pulling myself down the hall via a monorail on the ceiling, dropping…Continue

What an excellent few weeks for geeky sneak previews of upcoming movies! It's a good time to be a fan of superheroes, dinosaurs, science fiction, action/adventure, and anything else that would make the 12-year-old in all of us cheer. Here are some of the trailers that debuted recently, making us count the days…Continue

The Man Without Fear, otherwise known as the comic book superhero Daredevil, seems to finally be earning some respect. The new Netflix series has generated mostly good reviews and, based on the first few episodes I've seen, has done justice (pun intended) to the blind attorney by day / masked…Continue
In commemoration of the New York International Auto Show taking place at the Javits Center, allow me to present to you my choices for the best cars in popular culture entertainment history. …
We are in the midst of a nostalgia trend, ladies and gentlemen. I'm not just talking about reboots and remakes of old television favorites (although I'm still excited about The Twilight Zone coming back yet again); we're seeing the continuation of beloved series with the original cast returning to…Continue
When asked, if reincarnation is real, what I wanted to come back as, I've always joked Joni Mitchell. Joni has been one of the stars in my firmament since the days of "Big Yellow Taxi" and "Clouds". As Joni moved from her sort of folk-rock beginning, the girl from the Bay of Fundy has moved into…Continue

When precious metals agent Cubandor and teleoperator Clarity Nice reach the northern island of Cayo Coco in Cuba, a group of revolutionary Cuban security guards working for colonel Swarez da Silva, men known as Marrulleros, arrest them as counter-revolutionary elements, and send them to a high profile prison, in the name of a new revolution which the colonel hopes, will lead him to power in Cuba.…Continue
Among other bon mots of in credible pithiness Blaise Pascal wrote this:
I've enjoyed all the revivals of entertainment from my younger days, but then I started feeling ancient. It will be wonderful to see new episodes of Twin Peaks and The X-Files, but I will also realize that it's been decades since I first saw the originals. I'm thrilled to see Van…Continue

“We have no need of a god, each of us is his own.”
Those words were sung in the mid-60s by a 16-year-old folksinger whose debut album shocked the nation with a song (“Society’s Child”) about interracial love. If you guessed Janis Ian, you’re right.
What most people probably don’t remember is her song “New Christ Cardiac Hero,” also on the same Lp, a declaration that her generation and mine were god-free, carefree and, as Sartre had said,…Continue
Hollywood loves generic titles for its movies and television shows. Right now I'm seeing a trend in the (over)use of the word "American." We have American Horror Story, American Crime, American Dad, and The Americans. Coming soon…Continue
As a lot of you probably did, I got an e-mail last week from Open Salon saying they were closing the doors. I wasn't really sure how I felt about that; I was having a good time chronicling the events in my neighborhood, and apparently more than one person liked reading them.
But I had no idea where to go from there. I remembered several people talking about OurSalon, and LorianneZ, so I contacted her to see if bringing The Crimson Jesus Chronicles here was do-able. She not only…
