A Trump 1950s TV Episode Truth Movement?

You’ve probably seen this really bizarre story of the Twilight Zone-like episode of the TV show “Trackdown” from 1958 which bears some difficult-to-believe resemblances to 2019 America. A conman named Trump comes to a town and gets everyone panicked that the world is about to end unless they agree to let him build a wall that will save them. As I wrote yesterday, when I first happened on the story I had to read it several times and then check it several different ways because I was sure it had t...

10 Rewatchable Movies You Just Can’t Turn Off

10 rewatchable movies you just can’t turn off One main characteristic of cinephiles is that their favorite movies are incredibly rewatchable.  Sometimes, these rewatchable movies are a bit odd and esoteric. This author will watch random films like The Ninth Gate and Starship Troopers until he knows them by heart.  Rewatchability is one of the best qualities a movie can have.  It is great to go back and watch Inception again to try and discover a few more nuggets of information as to wh...

Video: Dolly Parton – “Girl in the Movies” From The Dumplin’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, out now. Dolly Parton can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned.

I didn't blog the death of Stan Lee, so why am I blogging the death of William Goldman?

Both were important writers in American popular culture whose work did not reach out to me personally. But I will link to the Goldman obituary (WaPo), because I have consumed his work. It loomed large in the part of the culture where I lived. I've never had any interest in superhero comics. Never read them. Never cared. Have no opinion other than it's something I see other people like. Those other people can talk about the meaning of Stan Lee. But Goldman is another story.IMDB lists 34 movies he...

Jack Black shares funny showbiz stories

Did you know that he once "smoked a jay" with Tim Robbins, Giancarlo Esposito, and Robert Altman on a mountaintop at a Cannes film festival after-party? Or that he was cast by Lee Majors himself to appear in The Fall Guy? In this uncensored video, Jack Black shares honest and often hilarious moments from his career in show business by looking at his own IMDB page. It's all great, but be sure to watch it at least to the part where he talks about Johnny Skidmarks. I was in stitches. (Digg)

Amazon Might Develop Original Movies With Sony and Paramount, Amazon Streaming May Get Ads

Amazon is upping its stake in the streaming war. Though the company has built a respectable reputation as a theatrical distributor through its Amazon Studios and has garnered acclaim through its Emmy and Golden Globe-winning original TV series and Oscar-winning movies, it still trails the competition in many ways. Netflix currently has the streaming movies market cornered, but it appears that Amazon is taking larger steps to develop its own Amazon Prime original movies. Amazon in Talks to ...

True Travel Story: How to Avoid Becoming a Serial Killer’s Next Victim

In my nomadic wanderlust over the years, I’ve always tried to learn as much as possible along the way in hopes of becoming a more savvy world traveler.

Why Beautiful Design Isn’t Always Best For Small Businesses and Startups

There’s always beauty in good design, but good design isn’t always beautiful. How can this be true? The answer is simple. Good looks aren’t everything, as Steve Jobs liked to remind people: Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, “Make it look good!” That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. You can have a good design ...

Space Boobs In Space is the best thing on Prime Video

Prime Video doesn’t have a show like Netflix’s Jessica Jones. Instead, it has Space Boobs In Space. Where the former’s about a fictional female crime fighter, the other is a low budget piece of body-positive feminism that deserves to be taken just as seriously. Not all heroes wear capes or leather jackets; some wear just enough to cover their nipples. Space Boobs In Space is a film by underground studio Gonzoriffic. According to IMDB it was shot on an estimated budget of about $1,000 using smart...

Google's Walled Garden: Are We Being Pushed Out of Our Own Digital Backyards?

Posted by Dr-PeteEarly search engines were built on an unspoken transaction — a pact between search engines and website owners — you give us your data, and we'll send you traffic. While Google changed the game of how search engines rank content, they honored the same pact in the beginning. Publishers, who owned their own content and traditionally were fueled by subscription revenue, operated differently. Over time, they built walls around their gardens to keep visitors in and, hopefully, keep th...
