I’m not a fan of the term “the Golden Age of Television”. Whatever this so called great period of television was must well and truly be over because every new “hit show” I watch is boring the heck out of me. One genre that never fails to deliver though are the Scandinavian-noir-crime-dramas.
For those of you who haven’t a clue who or what Clarence is check out my volume one review. Clarence is a Cartoon Network show that is a neat throw back to 90s cartoons such asHey Arthur, Ed Edd n Eddy, Rugrats etc. It’s a little less hip and more little kid-orientated than stuff like Adventure […]
One could say that Jeremy Scott is the Banksy of the fashion world. Loved and adored by many but not fully embraced by the elite of their fields. For those of you who don’t know who Jeremy Scott is, he’s a fashion designer and the current Creative Director of Italian luxury fashion house Moschino. Celebs such […]
In 1968 the ABC network was struggling to compete with CBS and NBC. Known for poor quality programming and very low ratings, comedian Milton Berle quipped: “The way to end the Vietnam War is to schedule it on ABC. . . . It’ll be cancelled in 13 weeks”. To pull in viewers during the Republican/Democrat conventions of […]
In the mid 2000s DVDs were a booming business. Cult, Horror and Exploitation fans were in heaven with awesome films being released by companies such as Blue Underground, Synapse, Cult Epics, Severin and Unearthed Films. I shudder at the amount of cash I dropped on single box-set releases compared to how cheap DVDs are today. […]
Dino Death Match: In 2006, at Hell Creek in Montana, a rare fossil was found. Given the name “The Dueling Dinosaurs”, the fossil consists of two dinosaurs who appear to have killed each other during a fight. One is a smaller sized carnivorous tyrannosaurid and the other a larger herbivore. What’s all the excitement about? The […]
Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) and Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, SNL) star as two monogamy-challenged folks struggling to hold down any semblance of relationship till they predictably fall for each other by the time the credits roll. No need for a spoiler-alert there as every rom-com ends the same.
I Lost it at the Video Store is a love-letter to the near-extinct video store and its culture. The title is an homage to influential film critic Pauline Kael’s I Lost it At the Movies. Out of all retail outlets that are dying off the video store has been the saddest one to watch go. There was something […]
Around the mid 2000s Anime started getting really big. Emos liked it and nerds liked it, all of a sudden it was everywhere. I didn’t get this new phenomenon. Why now? I wasn’t ready to spend my money on anything but everything coming out on DVD from various companies and it just seemed like such […]
I have fond memories of watching The Brady Bunch and Happy Days as a kid but The Partridge Family mustn’t have played in the late ’80s/early ’90s as I never saw it growing up. After watching the Boyd Rice (NON, Unpop Art) documentary Iconoclast, I’d been meaning to check out TPF. Rice and his cohorts are part of The […]
