Mouseguns, Then and Now

A frequently-encountered fixture at the gun store is the crusty old dude leaning on the counter...it doesn't matter if he's leaning on the employee side or the customer side, he's there somewhere...and intoning that all these new-fangled nine millimeter pistols are silly and calibers don't count for self defense unless they start with "four".

How Utah Is Confronting Its Gun Suicide Epidemic

Ian Ayres and Fredrick Vars The stress, isolation, and economic displacement of the pandemic combined with the spike in gun sales – especially to new gun owners -- has created a toxic cocktail that will likely lead to a surge in gun suicides.   In normal times, we lose more than 20,000 Americans each year to gun suicide.   But a CDC surveytells us a whopping 10.7% of adults seriously considered suicide in June.​​​​​​ And more and more Americans have a ready means to take their own lives –...

‘Nomadland’ Oscar Nominations Could Be a First in Academy Award History

Believe it or not, a woman has never been nominated for Best Actress and Best Picture (via being a producer) in the same exact year. That very well might be about to change, though – with Nomadland. Star Frances McDormand is also a producer on the Chloé Zhao-directed flick, and almost everyone who tracks the Oscars seems to think she’s a shoo-in for Best Actress and that the film will surely get a Best Picture nod. Nomadland is one of the year’s best movies. And Frances McDormand is there in...

Someone added lyrics to THE MANDALORIAN theme song

Here are the delightfully self-aware (but a little too long for an intro) lyrics: VERSE 1Here's a man in an Beskar suit Who's a walking armory Bounty hunting to just make do In the gig economy His name is on the show But we know who the star is (space flute) This puppet who's adorable and green Turned out to be a tiny cash machine VERSE 2 Through the dustiest worlds he rides Kicking ass and slinging guns Like a mystery cowboy type Hate to say, it's all been done He's just Clint Ea...

The penultimate episode of The Mandalorian’s second season, written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa, brings us to the very brink of a confrontation with Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito).

The Best Movies Leaving Hulu in November 2020

One and a half months. That’s how long you have to watch these movies before they vanish from Hulu – possibly forever. Will these cinematic classics ever return to that specific streaming service? Who can say? Streaming rights are nebulous things. So it’s probably for the best to carve out some time and watch these before you have to fire up a different streaming service – or, worse, re-activate your Netflix by mail DVD plan – in order to see them.
