If you ever find yourself wondering, Am I the only one who..., the answer is no you are not. There is always someone else.

That's what Meade asserts — and I presume he's not the only one who asserts that. If he could say it, someone else has also said it. You're never the only one.The specific occasion for the assertion of this immense generality was a discussion of yard signs on view in our neighborhood as we were driving home from the sunrise run this morning. We noted that the Black Lives Matter signs are nearly all gone, for whatever reason. The only persistent signs are anti-gerrymandering, perhaps because ther...

WandaVision's Agatha All Along Picked Up A Grammy Nomination, As It Should Have

Agatha Harkness has successfully bewitched the world. This is no big surprise coming from a sorcerer of her background, especially because "WandaVision" star Kathryn Hahn gave a magnetic breakout performance from the very second she stepped on screen. The scene-stealing sorceress managed to snag a spin-off series before the year even came to a close! Her ascendancy was inevitable and we all pretty much saw it coming — just not in the form of a gilded gramophone. Agatha's insanely catchy theme so...

Die Hard Characters As Dungeons & Dragons Character Alignments

Beyond the storytelling possibilities afforded by its fantastical settings, the key to any "Dungeons & Dragons" campaign is the diverse field of social dynamics that can emerge from just a few different character archetypes -- from rangers and barbarians to rogues and sorcerers -- and the color-wheel spectrum of character alignments any player can draw from its four compass points of Chaotic, Lawful, Good and Evil.And beyond its awesome action sequences, what makes the original "Die Hard" (1988)...

Tony Todd Still Thinks Candyman Is 'The Whole Damn Hive' And He's Right [Interview]

Candyman made Tony Todd a legend, but it works both ways. The incredible actor — who originated the role in the 1992 film and has reprised his part in three subsequent films, including Nia DaCosta's 2021 reboot — did just as much to catapult his character into the horror zeitgeist as the character did in putting him on the map as an actor. There's no denying that simply no other actor could've truly played Candyman in the way that Todd did — nor would anything less be as satisfying. Todd played ...

What I Read in April: Part 1

Time for another quick round-up of the books I've read and listened to lately. I finished 16 books in April, most of them audiobooks. Why so many books?

Here is part 1 of what I read last month, in the order I finished each book (part 2 will go live on Thursday). Note that the following thoughts are also available on Goodreads.

She was lured away by a pig-woman, with promises of working in a factory and furthering her education. Yeah, right. We all know how that goes.In rough-and-tumble Manila, he's...

This West Side Story Teaser Wants To Pretend This Movie Isn't A Musical For Some Reason

The upcoming Steven Spielberg remake has treated all of that as a central focus in the footage we've seen so far ... until this amusing black sheep of a television spot, that is. Even the behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the film we recently showed you made s...
