Watched at Home: Top 20 Streaming Films for the Week of October 15

Watched at Home: Top 20 Streaming Films for the Week of October 15 You did it, guys! After seven long months of tracking The Digital Entertainment Group’s Top 20, The Lord of the Rings trilogy finally cracked the list. Actually, Peter Jackson’s epic series swooped in like Shadowfax and fought its way into the Top 10, landing at No. 9. True, it wasn’t just Lord of the Rings … it took the entire Middle Earth 6-Film Collection, including the three Hobbit films, to upend the establishment. But, ...

How to Tell Awesome Stories to Your Kids

Since our kids were little, we’ve read to them every night before bed. Sometimes after we put the book we’re currently reading aside, I’ll also give them a bonus, impromptu storytelling session as I tuck them in. I just tell them a story that I conjure up on the spot. While Gus (age 10) has kind of aged out of it, Scout (age 7) still really enjoys hearing Dad’s imaginative yarns. I didn’t use any guides to come up with my stories, and instead just drew upon my years of consuming narratives i...

Tom Lehrer Releases His All of Catchy and Savage Musical Satire Into the Public Domain

If the age of American musical satire is behind us, Tom Lehrer may have ended it simply by being unsurpassably good at it. No less a comedy-song master than “Weird Al” Yankovic still walks among us, of course, but he specializes in broad parody rather than biting irony. Despite having retired from public life, Lehrer too lives on, and at 92 has taken action to assure his work a longer existence by releasing it into the public domain. On his official site you’ll see a statement from the m...

Richard Harris Festival and His Sons Remember the Actor

In normal times, the idea of a Richard Harris Intl. Film Festival (which runs Oct. 20-26; seems entirely appropriate to the legions of fans of the late legendary Irish stage and screen actor, but since Oct. 1 marked Harris’ 90th birthday, it feels absolutely essential. Oscar-nominated twice, first for Lindsey Anderson’s “This Sporting Life” […]

Tweets vs Blogposts

Hola! If you are a longtime reader of this blog (or blogs in general), you would know how blogging as a hobby has been sort of replaced by things like Instagram, tweets, and so on and so forth. Both in general and for me. And how blogging is now a lot more "content marketing" where companies pay peanuts to desk monkeys to churn out words that trap those search engine spiders logs. And how the "content" that is created does not really do anything good to any reader, even if they may want to read ...

Bath & Body Works Black Friday 2020 Dates and News

Bath and Body Works Black Friday 2020 dates and news has been announced today and I think maybe it’s going to change how we do Black Friday this year. As you know many stores have been announcing that they will be closed for Thanksgiving this year! That’s such a welcome relief for those that work in retail as having to eat turkey and rush to work without actually enjoying the holiday reason sucks. Thanksgiving has always been a day that 99% major retailers shut down but in recent years they ...

California shouldn’t make the Disneyland reopening decision in the dark

So how is riding a roller coaster more or less safe than sitting inside a movie theater? How is eating at a restaurant inside Disneyland more or less safe that dining at another just down the street? The people who go to and work at California’s theme parks want those answers — and we have not been getting them. Like many people in my community and around the state, I want to do whatever I can to help stop this pandemic. As a fan and annual passholder to Disneyland and many other local parks, I ...

Is it rational to condemn an artwork for an artist’s personal immorality?

There is a long history of concern over art created by people who have done horrible things. (Hitler’s paintings are one classic source of controversy.) The #MeToo movement has shown just how widespread such cases are. It is one thing to condemn Chuck Close, James Levine, or R. Kelly for their alleged wrongdoing, but another to regard their artworks as though they were somehow polluted by association with their creators.“Magical contagion” is the inclination that people have to act as though the...

First Trailer for 'Roald Dahl's The Witches' Directed by Robert Zemeckis

"Witches!! They're real - and they haaaate children!" Warner Bros has unveiled the first official trailer for Roald Dahl's The Witches, a new live-action movie directed by the iconic filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (who most recently made Welcome to Marwen). Based on Roald Dahl's 1983 classic book "The Witches", the story tells the scary, funny and imaginative tale of a seven year old boy who has a run in with some real life witches. This isn't really a horror movie about scary witches, as much as...
