Fanboy Does ‘Wrath of the Titans’

Wrath of the Titans: Whoo-boy, a serious action movie, with some beautiful special effects.Fortunately, the Titans production team threw a bit less at us in the way of breathtaking visual intricacy — such as that of the too-frenetic Transformer movies, which I sometimes had a hard time following and lost interest in as a result.Good stuff:Special Effects. Being me, I HAD to like the flying horse, but there were some other effects that were even better. … [Read more...]

Murderous Purple Panda Terrifies Terrified Children

Sorry, can't help but laugh at this. ABC News reports on an incident at Pennsylvania's Center in the Woods preschool."Mr. McFeely" (the name alone made me laugh; sounds more like a Catholic preschool character), apparently a delivery man on Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, introduces the kids to special guest Purple Panda. As the costumed character enters the room, Panda-monium breaks out: The kids scream and run. … [Read more...]

Dear Friends, Bloody on the Highway

As I've said here in the past, I still get emails from old friends in Texas. Some of those people have gotten so goddy over the years that we seem to have nothing at all in common anymore.Every time I get one of these things, it's like waking up in a cold cabin with the fire gone out.
