Purple links

content discovered on Monday, May 02, 2016

And just when we had gotten over the death of Bowie, this happens. I remember back in junior high we'd occasionally debate who was better, Prince or Michael Jackson. It was probably an unfair comparison. As awesome as Michael was, he didn't play an instrument, whereas Prince - well, perhaps it'd be easier to list what he couldn'tplay.The film career of the Purple One was perhaps a little less distinguished overall, but hey, criticizing him for not being a great actor is kinda like criticizing Mozart beca... read more »

This is Spinal Tap

content discovered on Wednesday, April 06, 2016

This is Spinal Tap from my DVD collection ...Let's face it: a lot of music being heard on the radio waves today does suck, particularly pop music. I know because I was forced to listen to it in work a few weeks ago. My work station is currently the front reception desk until our expanded office space is ready to use (we don't actually have a receptionist, but it was one of the few available places for me.)In the front reception area is a speaker. I have no idea who turned it on one afternoon, but all o... read more »

The link who fell to Earth

content discovered on Monday, February 01, 2016

Unfortunately, I don't have any interesting stories related to the music of David Bowie. I never saw him in concert, nor did he inspire me to explore my sexuality or anything along those lines. Like many people, I simply dug his music, and I'm really sad to see him departed from this life. As an actor - and he had been one almost as long as he had been a singer - he had an eclectic range of roles, as you would expect from one who took on roles in his musical performances: Pontius Pilate in The Last Tempt... read more »

Plan 9 From Outer Space

content discovered on Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Plan 9 From Outer Space YouTube viewingLet's start with the question everyone asks: is it really the worst movie of all time? Friends and neighbors, I have seen a lot of movies in my life, but I haven't seen nearly enough to even be remotely qualified to answer that question. Personally, I think the "all time" label, while it's certainly well-earned, is also part hyperbole, a gimmick used to get people to willingly engage in what they believe to be a "campy" experience that they can tweet about later.I'... read more »

New release round-up for September '15

content discovered on Monday, September 28, 2015

Once again, I didn't see any new films, so I'll talk TV instead... ...and there's only one new TV show that's on my mind right now. When I first saw the print ads for the new Muppet TV show, The Muppets, at first I was excited. Then I looked at them closer and thought: What are the Muppets doing with cell phones? Then I remembered: it's 2015, not 1979. No matter how often I see Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and the rest in a modern context, I simply cannot get used to it. To me, they'll always be of the ... read more »

7 Ways to Cope with Online Author Bullying

content discovered on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Hearing reports of authors and writers deciding not to continue writing online because of bullying, is distressing. It’s also not just about receiving bad reviews.As there have been a few cases of this phenomenon, it doesn’t seem to be just a personal issue, either. I.e. the bullies are not targeting authors because they know them personally to begin with.As a creative, attracting unhelpful criticism is part of the process. It is impossible to please everyone. Your USP is something that will gain you fan... read more »

Tod Browning

content discovered on Friday, June 12, 2015

Maybe I should have waited until Halloween to write about Tod Browning. Though I didn't know much about the director prior to writing this post, I associate him with films dealing with the macabre and the weird. He spent most of his career in the silent era, when the medium was still very much in its incubation period, but it's his talkies that he may be best remembered for - in particular, two films that may not be as shocking now as they were in his day, but remain memorable and influential over eighty... read more »

Blyth Spirit: The Jacqueline T. Lynch Q-and-A

content discovered on Friday, June 05, 2015

In the long history of Hollywood child stars, there are few who grew up and sustained their early success into a long and fruitful career: Elizabeth Taylor, Natalie Wood, and Kurt Russell immediately come to mind as examples. Another among that number is Ann Blyth, who at age sixteen, went toe to toe with the formidable Joan Crawford in the original Mildred Pierce and earned herself an Oscar nomination. She went on to make a string of stirring dramas and light comedies, with only occasional but memorable... read more »

Papa's got a brand new link

content discovered on Monday, June 01, 2015

"You fathers will understand. You have a little girl.You're her oracle. You're her hero."I'd like to send out a big thank-you to everyone who re-tweeted or re-posted or commented on Facebook about my link to the story about Friends of the Loew's winning their court case against Jersey City. I had absolutely no idea this was gonna happen. I had planned to go to the Loew's Jersey City Friday night, yes, but mostly because I hadn't been back there in months and I wanted to get in one more movie before the s... read more »
