The Value of Knowing Another’s Secrets, Movie-Wise

Apartment

For Wilder the writer, knowledge is power, and the way he wields it is wonderful to behold. For Baxter, though, it’s much more than power. For him, it’s salvation. [Read more...]

SSF: “Simulacra”

simulacra

I’m not quite sure what the term “mustardcuffins” means. Or if it describes Theo Tagholm in any way. So I’m going with “genius” instead. Works just fine, I’m thinking. Yes, it’s a bit of a one-trick pony, so you’ll probably understand what’s going on fairly quickly. But it still feels amazing, even after you understand. The freeway stuff, in particular, [Read More...]

Face-Meltingly Hi-Res Rocket Launch Footage via SpaceX

Falcon_9_COTS_Demo_F1_Launch

Again, I include my usual “Full-Screen” and “HD” recommendations, though the warning below is a fair one. (I tried it out on 2160 at first and my Internet…pretty much died.) Oh, and HT to the good folks at Laughing Squid, who provide the InterWebs with an inordinate amount of awesome each and every week. (If you’ve got a [Read More...]

In Memory of Stan Freberg, Here’s “Elderly Man River”

Freberg

I knew Stan Freberg (the “madcap adman and satirist” who passed away on Tuesday) mostly as the Beaver in Lady and the Tramp. Or as various voices in various Looney Toons production. Or as The Man We Praise and/or Blame for Weird Al. But he also did this hilarious “Elderly Man River” radio routine, which [Read More...]

SVS: “The Dick Van Dyke Show”

DVD3

So, confession time. But first, let me set the table (for maximum embarrassment). First, I’ve always loved Dick Van Dyke. The guy is an absolute hoot; a goofy, plastic-faced, comedic wiz; basically, a real-life (but uncreepy) Gumby. And he reminds me of my dad. I suppose that’s probably a big part of why I love him. [Read More...]

No Commentary Necessary — “Adam Eaton Channels Superman”

shutterstock_127189781

Earlier today, the White Sox’s Adam Eaton made a catch. OK, that’s not fair. He didn’t “make” a “catch.” He full-on Iron Giant-ed it. (That’s probably not an actual term, but should be. So if it’s not, I’m coinin’ it right now.) Your browser does not support iframes. Gosh. Just…wow. Definite shades of Jim Edmonds, [Read More...]

“It’s Great Not To Be Nominated!”

shutterstock_250501696

View image | gettyimages.com Today, while looking for something else entirely, I found this video. And it is awesome. In fact, if the modern Oscars had stuff like this, I’d probably watch ‘em. All 137 hours. OK, fine. I watch ‘em anyway. So maybe I should say that if the modern Oscars had stuff like this, [Read More...]

A Lenten Musical Journey, Coda

shutterstock_3917881

Looking back on my recently-completed musical adventure, I’m pleased. I feel like it did exactly what I wanted it to do: made my Lent both more meditative and more musical. I’m a bit surprised, though, at how much of it was Russian. And/or Polish. (I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. Music is the one place [Read More...]

SSF: “Hart’s Desire”

Hart

I can sympathize with either one of these guys, depending on the moment. (Also, I love the way it uses the expanding and contracting windows/frames/panels.) An aspiring hermit, an aspiring socialite and a shared flask of tea. Written, directed and animated by Gavin C. Robinson; music composed and performed by Mike Vass; sound by Keith [Read More...]

The Journey Is Over
