What did everyone think? Good, Meh, or Suck? I’m a Meh+ but, RoP is exceeding my expectations. Show is looking more solid because it is rewarding the rewatch, every scene you can see they spent a billlion dollars building this world. I mean every location, set, and costume is pretty glorious.

I was leafing through some back-issues of People magazine, discarded from the local small-town library, and I came across a reminder that Eric Stoltz was originally cast in the role of “Marty” for “Back To The Future.” While he was acknowledged to be doing a fine job, he was playing the role basically straight. (And […]

If you would […]

Join Jim and Greg as they take Arizona GOP Senate nominee Blake Masters to task for significantly changing his official position on abortion just weeks after winning the primary. But they also encourage Republicans to go on offense over the radical Democratic position of any abortion at any time for any reason. They also shake their heads as European nations are about to pay through the nose for Russian energy this winter, despite longstanding U.S. warnings not to be dependent upon Russian energy. They also detail how Biden’s policies have U.S. energy prices poised to skyrocket right after the midterm elections. And they discuss how Hollywood’s drought of compelling stories may be linked to the entertainment industry adhering to woke ideology in its content.

The last high note, the last deep bow

 

I grew up watching The Tonight Show. Just as your parents marked your height with marks on the door frame, so you marked your own growing-up by how much of the show you could watch. You watched the monologue, of course, and laughed at the things you got and took note of the things you would surely get later. If you were lucky, the Mighty Carson Art Players (I thought they made up that name; no) would do a skit – it’s Art Fern! With lovely Carol . . . Merrill? No, she was Price is Right. Right? Anyway, Carol something. And was she Carol Something, let me tell you.

At the back of a marvellous magical wardrobe, a new world awaits – or a new-old world – where they have golden laurels and hearty fruitcakes. Or at least that’s what the Deputy Librarian seemed to think DrewInWisconsin meant when he emerged, shaking off snow and saying something about sequels to The Chronicles of Narnia.[1] […]

 A subplot on a cartoon show on a streaming service contains more character development, plot intrigue, emotional resonance, complexity, and insight into politics than … well, really, any other series or film of recent memory.In addition to the main story of aliens stranded on Earth (the lead alien, Korvo, being basically a more buffonish version […]

The Eye of the Dragon

 

‘I can smell thee, Chooser! Come out, and no harm need befall this one. Or leave him be, and I’ll broil him!’

It’s a rough life being a Valkyrie’s Chosen. Chosen what, exactly, I never did find out. But when she brings you back from the mostly dead and asks you to call her if ever you want an adventure, well … that’s how you wind up pinned down by a dragon’s claws in some godforsaken cave whilst he threatens and cajoles and otherwise promises to make tinned knight on toast out of you, starting with your innards. ‘Hurt him,’ said a voice that rang with the accents of the old North, ‘and I’ll put your head on my wall.’ It wasn’t a threat, as such. (You had to know Red.) More of a promise.

…since we got back from the U.S. We had quite a packed schedule while in the States and only now have I found time to devote to JBD. So, thanks to the Miles Davis Archive on Youtube, you can enjoy two sets from the Konserthuset in Stockholm, recorded October 13th, 1960:   Preview Open

Was on a call today at work and I joined right as a co-worker mentioned that his Covid-19 was “lingering” which caused me to quip that Linger is the second best Cranberries song.  Which lead to the discussion about which was the best Cranberries song. One person noted that Zombie is the most popular song […]

Lief the Red

 

I woke up and the world had turned grey. Grey walls, grey objects, even grey air. Except for one thing, and that was full of colour. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say it was a Valkyrie. Or rather, that she was a Valkyrie. She had long red hair that glinted like blood on copper and spilled over brass armour from beneath a wingéd helmet. She was leaning over me, feeling my neck for a pulse.

I’d heard of people feeling like they’d died and gone to heaven. I’d never yet heard them say anything about dying and being carried off to Valhalla.

When the Valkyrie saw my eyes were open and looking up at her, she frowned. But it was when she reached for her sword that I got a little concerned. I grabbed her hand. It may have been a bit ungentlemanly, but I like life as much as the next man.

Samwise Gamgee brought home the golden laurels and (Shire-baked) hearty fruitcake for Judge Mental last week,[1] winning him the chance to ask: What novel (or series) do you wish could have a sequel, but won’t get one because the author is no longer with us?  * * * Preview Open

It’s all good martinis today! Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news that the Oregon governor’s race is a toss-up thanks to a former Democrat running as an independent. They also celebrate news that the strong hiring numbers we’ve seen in the wake of the pandemic are overwhelmingly powered by Republican-led states. And they discuss why it was long past time for Brian Stelter to be shown the door at CNN after constantly turning a program designed to objectively evaluate the media into a cheerleading session for the left.

I’m watching the Amazon series The Expanse. I’m not a Marvel superheroes fan, and I find the endless Star Wars franchise boring, shallow, and I hope it leads to a terminal demise due to sequilitis. I’m reminded of the old joke that Peter Jackson has announced that there will be 13 more Hobbit movies. The first […]
