Jeffrey’s Perfectly On-Time Top Ten Films of 2013

While most people rush to get their top 10 lists out as soon as the year ends, perhaps even right before it ends, I like to do mine right around the time of the Academy Awards.  This allows me the time to not only see all of the films released late in the year, but [...]

Mob City S1:E2 *Possible Spoilers Hidden In My Rambling*

Yep.  I’m a week behind.  Deal. Here we are, back again for more of the new classic, Hat and Gun City.  We open with four guys in a sedan.  I’m pretty sure this show is set in LA, but everyone has a non-specific east coast mobster accent. Bugsy Siegel just started punching people in the [...]

Mob City (TNT) S1:E1 *Probably Spoilers*

I’ve decided to jump in the fray with doing my own write-along, so let’s get to it, shall we? Straight out the gate, if we are to learn anything about organized crime, it’s that you never trust three guys with violin cases in a dark alley, even if those cases actually carry violins.  This is [...]

The Walking Dead (AMC) S4:E3 *SPOILERS*

Apologies that this wasn’t posted last night, but I was out late with the Gentlemen recording a new podcast and didn’t have a chance to finish the recap until after work today.  So if you already saw Marilyn Manson’s insane drug-fueled ramblings about what the episode meant on The Talking Dead, I forgive you if [...]

Katie’s Awesome List Of Halloween-esque Movies!!

It’s Halloween and I have been invited to throw my two cents into the coin bag of Halloween moviedom.  Before I list my particular favorites, however, I want to really make it clear that the way I review movies is totally subjective and not at all measured with any kind of fairness metric except just [...]

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC) S1:E4 *SPOILERS*

Good evening, folks! With Charles otherwise engaged this evening you are stuck with me for the play by play this week. We start in Sweden. About a dozen very well dressed men in red kubuki masks. This is apparently perfectly normal in Sweden as nobody is even remotely alarmed by this. Seriously, Sweden? And now [...]

E3 2012 Preview-Dishonored

  The nature of gaming being what it is, a lot of the things you see at E3 are sequels to something or are adaptations of a movie or book property. Look at the list of games that we covered and this becomes very apparent. Given this, when you come across a new IP that [...]

Random Assortment of Emotional Detritus

Indeed, it must. I almost feel badly about starting my spew with another lame yarn of retail woe, but if we don’t teach these bitches how NOT to be pains-in-the-ass, they will never learn, right?  Of course, by “these bitches,” I mean, “anyone who shops in the store in which I work.”  There may be [...]

Bullies Suck. Let's Hate Them.

I have been thinking an awful lot about bullies and the general process of bullying, lately.  They’re everywhere, really.  They are the ones cutting you off in traffic and then giving you the finger.  They are the ones that cut in front of you in line at the grocery store and act like they didn’t [...]

Thus Concludes Another Year…

And I have absolutely nothing to write about.   I have no lists to compile, I have no great sense of accomplishment or closure, I am just going to wake up tomorrow and it will be January, 2010. Why this overwhelming sense of ennui?  I have no idea.  Maybe it’s because of all the drama in [...]

Well, Do They?

I mean, it’s been 25 years for crissakes. 25 years.  Man.  It seems like only yesterday I was watching MTV with baited breath for the world premiere video.  I mean, Duran Duran was there.  Where else was I supposed to be that was more important than the possibility of catching a glimpse of John Taylor [...]

The Annual Holiday Letter!

You know what I LOVE about Christmas time?  The annual “this is how my family is doing” updates that people seem to feel compelled to share at the holidays.  I suppose I can understand the idea behind it, but the logic tangles when I liken it to a company’s annual report.  You get them, you [...]
