Iron Man #100 - Jim Starlin cover

Jim Starlin Iron Man v1 #100, 1977 - Touting the one hundredth issue, Jim Starlin does a splendid job designing the cover. Iron Man snaps a steel girder in two, calling attention to the masthead. In the background, stone-carved numerals splinter and crack from age. Note how the hero's right leg is shadowed, positioning it further back for more interesting symmetry and depth. Starin's layout is [Author: Unknown]

Lil Nas X Performs Global Remix of “Old Town Road,” Swaps Nas for Cardi B on Surprise “Rodeo” Remix at 2020 Grammys

While 2019 definitely belonged to Lil Nas X, his Grammys debut turned out to be a family affair as he opted to make it a Lil Nas X & Friends moment. As we know, “Old Town Road,” perhaps better known as “Horses in the Back” by your lil’ nieces and nephews, was the song that could not and would not stop streaming last year. Part of the reason for that is because Lil Nas X kept remixing the damn song over and over again. The original remix featured the iconic Billy Ray Cyrus. After that, he saddled...

Usher Pays Homage to Prince With Inspired Grammys Tribute Performance Featuring Sheila E. & FKA Twigs

The news and headlines about Usher have been so focused on herpes cases and messy divorces and the like that it’s easy to forget that underneath the drama, there’s a very talented artist. Usher, thankfully, decided to remind us of his talents and not his genital warts by donning a ruffled suit and booting up a few of Prince’s greatest hits in a tribute to the legendary Purple One. The performance was effortless as Usher exuded confidence, swagger and libido as he ran through “Little Red Corvette...

Demi Lovato Cries During Emotional Grammys Performance, Her First Since Near-Fatal 2018 Overdose

Demi Lovato is hopefully feeling the love tonight. And she was definitely heard. The singer gave her first performance since her near-fatal July 2018 overdose and it occurred on the Grammy stage. Lovato performed her new song “Anyone,” a song she wrote and recorded just four days before the overdose. Getting emotional, she got choked up in the opening line and had to restart. Tears could be seen rolling down her face and she belted out the tune with just a piano behind her. A few lyrics from ...

YASODTC (yet another successful One-Day Tech Class)

Yesterday, I had yet another successful One-Day Tech Class (YASODTC). Overall, 20 of 23 passed the test. Here are a couple photos of the class:   One of the highlights was that 14-year-old Kyle passed the test. Kyle had failed the test once before, so I’m glad that I was able to get him over the hump, so to speak. He’s going to be a great ham. Also in the class was Michelle. She told me that she got her Novice license when she was 12 years old and had renewed it all these years. I’m happy to...

Restoring a Mac SE FDHD: Retrobright and Recapping Fun

What a long, strange trip it has been. For the better part of two months, I’ve been on a journey to resurrect the venerable Mac SE FDHD that I bought on Craigslist for $30. Like any journey, there have been trials and travails, as well as moments of joy and victory. In the process, I’ve not only learned a lot more about classic Macs, but I’ve come away with a newfound love of fixing up vintage computers that I did not expect to have.

‘Spree’ Review: A Desperate Rideshare Driver Kills His Customers for the ‘Gram [Sundance 2020]

To quote Broken Lizard’s 2001 stoner comedy Super Troopers, “desperation is a stinky cologne,” – and Kurt Kunkle (Joe Keery) is absolutely drenched in it. After runing the gamut on Stranger Things from a despicable jock to an affable cool kid, Keery takes a hard left turn in a new techno-horror thriller called Spree as Kurt, aka KurtsWorld96, a pathetic loser who’s thirsty for social media attention. Kurt is a socially awkward outcast with no friends who spends his days trying to build awarenes...

‘Star Wars Resistance’ Series Finale “The Escape” Feels Both Finished and Unfinished

The ending of Star Wars Resistance feels like a paradox, finished and unfinished. So many opportunities have been untouched in the previous season, yet so much has unraveled in the finale that provides a closure that feels decisive and open-ended without being a cliffhanger. All the little humanities in the past bubble up into emotional highs in the finale “The Escape.” Tam Ryvora (Susie McGrath) and Jace Rucklin (Elijah Wood) observe as the First Order lay waste on the Aeosians, who allied bri...

‘Kajillionaire’ Review: Miranda July’s Con Artist Movie is Strange But Ultimately Sweet [Sundance 2020]

If Parasite didn’t satiate your hunger for family teams of con artists, you might be curious to check out Kajillionaire, the latest work from Miranda July. But while Parasite is a tale of capitalism and class-warfare, Kajillionaire has other things on its mind. In fact, it’s not really even a con artist movie. July uses that scenario to draw us into the surreal world she’s created, and then pulls the rug out from under us to create something far more emotional. The problem with this scenario...
