November linkfest

It’s Word of the Year season, and two British dictionaries are leading the pack. Collins picked lockdown – a word we threw around here in the US but never experienced the way they did in the UK and elsewhere. (A friend of mine is literally confined to her London apartment after spending a month in France: she can’t go outdoors at all.) And Oxford Languages, publisher of the Oxford dictionaries, chose a phenomenon instead of a single word: the impact of the COVID-19 on language. “What struck the...

‘Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults’ Trailer: HBO Max Docuseries Examines the Infamous UFO Cult

People love cults. There are numerous reasons why, but it can’t be denied that it’s very easy for some individuals to get swept up in that cult mentality – be it Jim Jones, Scientology, the Rajneeshpuram community, the Branch Davidians, or Trumpism. And sadly, more often than not, cults can end in disaster and death. Such was the case with Heaven’s Gate, a group founded in the 1970s by Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles. The members of Heaven’s Gate believed they were destined to leave Eart...

Vamp or Not? I Am Not a Serial Killer

This was a film that had been on my radar and then I lost sight of, that is until Simon Bacon contacted me and asked if I had seen it. He suggested that there might be a vampiric element to this.

It is based on a young adult novel by Dan Wells (which I haven’t read) and does some really interesting things during its running length. John on his bikeThings start on ...

‘WandaVision’ Will Also Channel More Recent Sitcoms Like ‘Modern Family’ and ‘The Office’

So far, Marvel’s teases of WandaVision have leaned heavily on the black and white, classic television sitcom world that Wanda Maxmioff and Vision find themselves living within. This makes the upcoming series on Disney+ unlike any Marvel Studios project we’ve seen before, but the emulation of classic sitcoms like I Love Lucy and Bewitched is just the beginning of WandaVision‘s journey through sitcom history.
