“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”--Tellin' it like it is! I don't blame The Donald anymore. His continued popularity is all on the people who are supporting him at this point. I can only imagine the froth-mouthed outrage that...

One of the best comedians of all time died at the untimely age of 66. 2016 can go fuck itself with the amount of cool people it has so far taken from us. George Martin, David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Alan Rickman to name just a few (and Lemmy, though he passed in 2015).

It's the inconsistency of thought that drives me...

Does anyone still refer to breasts as "boudacious ta-tas" or is that only something that was a thing in the 80s?

Finally (after tens of people telling me I would dig it) I am getting around to reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It's a stellar read so far. Definitely caters to geek culture, but not in an annoying fashion. I really need to start writing again, it's been too damn long. I am all the time inspired to write when I read...

Just got from the wonderful folks at Amazon the book "John Hughes A Life In Film". It's really put together nicely. If I am being honest his movies were tremendously influential to me (and most people born around 1972). I hope the young kids of today are aware of his work and watch his films as ravenously as I did "back in the day".

Saw Burt Bacharach this evening. The man is more than twice my age! You forget just how many massive songs that he wrote until you hear them performed in concert, songs like The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do), What's New Pussycat and so forth. Probably not that many people know this but he wrote There's...
