Regent Seven Seas Cruises: Best Value in Luxury Cruises?

Is Regent Seven Seas Cruises the Best Value in Luxury Cruises? Regent Seven Seas Cruises makes a bold claim that they are the best value in luxury cruises. And interestingly, they seem to be willing to back up their claim each year with written comparisons that they make between themselves and other luxury cruise providers. While I am one who strongly feels that you can’t and shouldn’t judge a luxury travel experience solely by price, as so many are want to do, it certainly makes sense to bring...

Carol Kaye on Bass

This was meant to be up in time for International Women’s Day, but studio arrangements have kept me away from the blog. This is an amazing hour long interview with bass legend Carol Kaye, from The Snapshots Foundation, which makes for compelling watching. If you aren’t familiar with Carol, you WILL have heard her play. […]

Carol Sloane: Spring Is Here

Carol Sloane is one of my favorite singers. She has a terrific sense of jazz articulation, she's a hip swinger and she goes deeper into a song than most other singers. She also takes risks mid-song to make standards sound more interesting. and when she leaps, she always lands sunny side up. Carol grew up as Carol Morvan in Providence, R.I., and started singing locally at age 14. On her first single at 16 in 1953, she was known as Carol Vann. In the '50s, she went off to Europe to appear in a to...

The First Blooms of 2019

D esperate times call for desperate measures. And who is more desperate than the cold climate gardener who’s been inundated with social media images of spring flowers blooming in warmer climates? Thank goodness my “desperate measures” are already in place. I’ve been planting early blooming bulbs where the snow melts first for several years. And every time the snow starts to melt, I check all those places for signs of emerging sprouts. Yes, I check during every thaw, even the January and Febr...

‘Captain Marvel’ Original Ending Revealed (And Why the Final One Works a Lot Better)

With her wildly successful first solo movie Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers immediately established herself as the most powerful and experienced superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saving the world since 1995. But the origin movie presents the MCU with one problem: explaining where Carol has been for the past 20 years. The onscreen conclusion of Captain Marvel goes on to show this, but editor Debbie Berman revealed that the Captain Marvel original ending was almost completely different. S...

The Final Avengers: Endgame Trailer Is HERE And So Is Captain Marvel

ONLY ONE MORE MONTH GUYS The latest Avengers: Endgame trailer is here and I’m gonna be real with you, things are looking just as bleak as they did in the first trailer back in December. In fact, I’d argue this one actually hurts more. The trailer opens with a montage of scenes from the heroes’ standalone movies, reminding us just how far everyone has come and how simple things were back then. Also the montage is in black and white because Marvel just really wants to hammer in how sad this ...

‘The Magicians’ Presents Big Questions in “Home Improvement”

Several characters in “Home Improvement,” the title of this week’s funnier-than-normal episode of The Magicians , deal with some concept of home. First, there’s Fen, who does whatever she can for her homeland, even if that that means undergoing back-breaking yard work for the supposed prophet in her dreams. There’s also Alice, who must visit her mother to cast a location spell for Zelda, the Librarian who has her own home-related desire to find her daughter in the mirror realm. And then there...

World’s Luxury Cruise Ship Fleet Set to Double

Remarkably, the world’s luxury cruise ship fleet is set to double in the next eight years as 43 new ships are currently on order. I suppose one might wonder why they are building all of these ships.  Well, the answer is really pretty simple: There are 80,000,000 baby boomers retiring at a rate of 10,000 every day. This demographic enjoys the “unpack once” ease of an ocean or river cruise. Carol and I have made it our goal to personally sail on all of the luxury ocean and river cruise brands. ...

Abandoned ‘Captain Marvel’ Post-Credits Scene Almost Tied Back to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Instead

After Avengers: Infinity War only gave us one credits scene, Captain Marvel returns to the Marvel Studios standard of having both a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. As we discussed last weekend, the mid-credits scene is a big set-up for Avengers: Endgame, and the post-credits scene is a fun little coda following the events of Captain Marvel. But directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden almost had an alternate Captain Marvel credits scene that tied back to Thor: Ragnarok. Beware of spoiler...

Maggie Delaney- Her story

For those of us who like reenactors. This lady Carol has researched a lot of court cases back in the 1600's pertaining to indentured servant's who came from Ireland at that time and in doing so came up with the character of Maggie Delaney and her story on what it might have been like for a lady such as Maggie. She has been portraying Maggie for a little over 10 years. To me she is spellbinding. She has beautiful blue eyes that stand out in her performance. She will bring you to tears and make ...

‘Captain Marvel’s 90s Setting Gets Confusing Thanks to the Film’s Soundtrack, Stan Lee’s Cameo & More

Captain Marvel is the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe set entirely in the 1990s. More specifically, thanks to certain revelations in the movie, both in the plot and background details, the movie takes place in 1995. That makes all those children of the ’90s who now have kids of their own feeling nostalgic for Blockbuster Video, baggy flannel shirts, beepers, throwback radio hits, arcade games, and more. But the nostalgia for the decade is also creating some confusion within the rea...

The Walking Dead's Carol Rises to an Entirely New Level of Badassery

Over the years, we’ve seen Carol kick plenty of ass. She’s shot countless people. Sometimes she’s shot them non-lethally, just so they could experience the horror of then being eaten alive by zombies. She’s set people on fire while they slept. But we’ve never seen Carol take out an entire band of enemies like she did…

‘Go Back to China’ Review: Emily Ting’s Character-Driven Indie is Another Big Win For Asian-American Filmmakers

At her sixth  interview, the interviewer asks Sasha in a slightly snarky way “How do you expect to get experience?” Sasha’s responds in a pleading and confused manner: “…By getting a job?” This interaction is a perfect snapshot of Sasha Li’s issues in writer/director Emily Ting’s film Go Back To China . While many other millennials can relate to that chicken-or-the-egg scenario of employment, Sasha is in a position of privilege by having her dad’s money to fall back on. Once that securi...

Why Nick Fury Didn’t Page Captain Marvel Before ‘Infinity War’, According To Kevin Feige

In Captain Marvel, we learn how Samuel L. Jackson‘s character Nick Fury first meets up with Carol Danvers in the mid-1990s. After seeing the film, the big question in a lot of fans minds is: why didn’t Nick Fury page Captain Marvel when a big wormhole opened over New York City and a massive alien assault happened on Earth in The Avengers? I asked Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige this exact question, and here is his response. Here is a snippet from my interview with Kevin Feige. The full inter...

'Captain Marvel' directors on why they have nothing but love for the internet trolls, and how being falsely linked to another Marvel movie might have gotten them the job

"Captain Marvel" directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck opened up about the advice "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler gave them and why false reports that they were in the running for the "Guardians of the Galaxy" job back in 2012 might have gotten them on the radar of Marvel executives. Boden and Fleck also addressed the internet trolls who have been writing negative reviews about the movie on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb.   If you think making a Marvel movie is a lot of pressure, try making the...

‘Captain Marvel’ and the Bizarre Comic Book History of Carol Danvers

Most big-screen superheroes tend to take a form resembling their original comics. Batman has always been a caped crusader, Superman has always leapt tall buildings in a single bound, and Spider-Man has always been a dorky webslinger. Even Marvel Studios has delivered comic-accurate versions of characters like Captain America and Iron Man, whose movie origins can be traced back to their comic book debuts. Captain Marvel however, has a long, complicated and at times bizarre history. Carol Danv...

Barstool Sports founder reportedly blames company ‘idiots’ for copyright controversy

In fact, even Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy isn’t trying to defend it, and instead reportedly described it as “moronic,” admitting it, “makes us look like assholes.” According to Bredouw (who backed up her account with screenshots of key correspondence), Barstool Sports uploaded one of her videos — a performance of “Slob on my Knob” set to the tune of “Carol of the Bells” — w...
