Looking at the similarities between Alien and Outland

Ridley Scott's Alien came out in 1979. Two years later, Peter Hyman's film Outland was released, starring Sean Connery and Peter Boyle. At the time, I remember being struck by the similar vibe shared by the two films. This video explores some of these and asks: "Does Outland take place within the Alien universe?" — Read the rest

‘The Mandalorian’ Returns With an Explosive Premiere Filled With Big Action and Plenty of ‘Star Wars’ Deep Cuts

Naturally, there are major spoilers here. The second season of The Mandalorian picks up almost immediately where the last left off. Din Djarin, the Mandalorian, has been quested to return the child (known as Baby Yoda on the internet) to its people and decides that seeking out other Mandalorians will aid him in this venture. Since Mandalorians fought against the Jedi in the past, perhaps they can lead him to those who can take the child. This leads him to Tatooine, chasing the shadow of ...

The Problems of Success

A theme in my work with clients is how often we're unprepared for "the problems of success." We're usually at least somewhat prepared for things to go badly. We consider the various ways a given effort might fail; we assess the likelihood of failure; and we develop a set of contingency plans in accordance with those possibilities. But we can be caught by surprise when things go well. It's as if our negativity bias blinds us to the possibility that a given effort might not only succeed but eve...

The 10 Best ’70s Comedies

The 10 Best ’70s Comedies When people think of the ’70s, usually the first thing that pops up is disco, bell-bottoms, or sideburns. For others, it’s maybe School House Rock. Chances are, if you’re a bit older reading this you’ve actually lived through this time and reminded many people about how it was the best decade and nothing ever came close to it. Or, you’ve heard someone in your family talk about how it was the best decade ever. Apparently, everything was better in the ’70s. The drugs. ...

"'The conceptual penis as a social construct' is a Sokal-style hoax on gender studies."

"This paper should never have been published."Titled, “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct,” our paper “argues” that “The penis vis-à-vis maleness is an incoherent construct. We argue that the conceptual penis is better understood not as an anatomical organ but as a gender-performative, highly fluid social construct.” As if to prove philosopher David Hume’s claim that there is a deep gap between what is and what ought to be, our should-never-have-been-published paper was published in the ...

6WH: Speed Round

Time flies when you're terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought. We've gone six weeks and then some, and as per usual, there are plenty of movies that I've watched that I didn't write about. This might have been because it didn't fit in a given week's theme, or maybe I just didn't have that much to say about it. This year's 6WH was somewhat more successful than the past couple of years. If I'm counting right, I will have watched 47 movies during the six weeks this year, a significant s...

I Think I'm Falling In Love...

...With a certain Epson. She is proudly black, admittedly blocky in shape, decidedly petite, expensive, and doesn't say much. But oh, my, the things she can do. So do you remember this post? I was reviewing the Nikon D800E, a.k.a. the Big Dragoon, since replaced in the lineup by the current D810. I had ventured abroad into the night (the inky dark, I called it), where I shot that top picture of Sunset Drive just after dark.

Marketers Must Fight For Their Brand Ideas

As we all know, there are two sides to every argument or debate. When developing a brand, whether it’s the identity, positioning, or marketing, differing points of view will often collide. Everyone is searching for the “big idea” in our business, and the reality is that the best use of budget, the cleverest strategy or the most efficient media selection may not win the day. It will often come down to who is the most passionate and most convincing with the better argument … or whether an argum...

Could 'The X-Files' address the theory that Scully is immortal?

Asked about the idea that Gillian Anderson's Dana Scully is immortal, creator Chris Carter told The Huffington Post , "It's certainly been suggested, but I can tell you this: Stay tuned for episode 6." The theory has its roots in an episode from The X-Files' third season, "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose," in which Peter Boyle - who would go on to win an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor - plays a man capable of discerning how people will die. When Scully asks how she'll meet her end, Bruckman repl...
