My Best Articles Catch-Up Compilation

My continuing tendency to get distracted and work on things not posted online means that I haven’t updated in a spell. Let’s rectify that with some of the better articles I’ve done over the last couple of months. As I’m posting this on Halloween, here’s an article I wrote about some crazy haunted house events […]

Catch-Up: Recent Articles!

Though I’ve had a number of big pieces the last few months, I haven’t taken the time to update them here!  Let’s rectify that. Here’s some of my best pieces from the last few months. Here is a two-part interview with Jim Starlin on his run on Marvel’s WARLOCK — including his creations Drax, Gamora […]

Most ’80s Opening Credits EVER

Like most peeps who were born/grew up in the ’80s, I irrationally  idealize that decade as the greatest and best of all things. And there’s nothing quite like finding some obscure reminders of the themes, styles and tropes of that era. Here’s a few examples of TV shows that really, really embraced certain trends of […]

Adventure Time Unseen Scenes!

As a psycho ADVENTURE TIME fan, I tend to rewatch episodes and follow behind-the-scenes info heavily. One cool thing I’ve notices is that sometimes the title cards shown for a split-second at the top of the episode depict events referenced but not seen in the episode, or that take place just before the episode’s actions […]

More Beavis and Butt-Head Videos, Like 60

I did a big compilation of Beavis and Butt-Head  videos like a year ago.  Here’s a bunch I found since then. “WHOAH!  Is this the Weather Channel?”  “The forecast is partially cool.” “What a jack-butt-munch-ass-dumb-butt.” “She looks like that chick who used to be young and had big hooters, and then got married to that dude […]

SNL’s Not Porn Stars Anymore: Write Your Own Sketch!

Darned if I don’t laugh every time at those not-porn-stars-anymore played by Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.  It’s even more repetitive than most SNL sketches and is based around the characters being stupid and inappropriate, like many an SNL sketch that has deeply annoyed me…yet this doesn’t.  In fact, it just […]

William Shatner — Extended Interview

Did a short interview with William Shatner for a local paper — you can read it here Here’s the extended version of our talk. # He’ll forever be known as Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, but William Shatner’s willingness to embrace his campy persona has made him more prolific than most actors a quarter of his […]

Best Articles of 2013 Compilation

Here are the most best things I wrote this past year.  I think this averages out to one great piece per week.  I am pleased by this. COMIC BOOKS The Strange History of Marvel Comics’ ULTIMATE ADVENTURES with Hawk-Owl and Woody Peter Milligan and Brendan McCarthy, Pt.1 Milligan and McCarthy, Pt.2 Jeffrey Brown on VADER’S […]

In the Criminal Justice System…an Ode to LAW AND ORDER: SVU

I prefer my TV super-positive.  I have difficulty watching things I know to be violent, dark, depressing, etc. And yet, I am endlessly sucked in by LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT. SVU, as it’s commonly known, is currently in its 15th season of busting rapists, pedophiles and miscellaneous, vaguely-sexually-related criminals.  It has hung onto […]
