Have a Very Merry Rock n’ Roll Christmas

Christmas is right around the corner, so you all know what that means? Music, of course. And as the Christmas season lasts until the Feast of the Epiphany, I can cue up a few videos in advance of the celebration, and keep right on going with it well into the New Year. [Read more…]

Peter O’Toole, Requiescat In Pace

Say a prayer for the soul of a great (lapsed?) Catholic actor who had the unfortunate knack of being in great movies that came out at the same time as other great movies. As a result, see, Peter O’Toole, though nominated by the Academy eight times for Best Actor, was never awarded the Oscar for a performance.

Pity, that. [Read more…]

Your Chance To Be A Patron Of The Arts

Your favorite film producer here, with another opportunity to bring Christian Art That Does Not Suckā„¢ to life.

About a year ago, see, there was a Kickstarter campaign for a situation comedy revolving around the life and times of, get this, a Roman Catholic Priest.

Hi. It’s just me.

PSA: Charlie Rose Interviews Syrian President Assad on PBS Tonight, 9PM Eastern

I don’t normally tune in to Charlie Rose on PBS, but seeings how tonight’s guest is Bashar al-Assad, I will be. Tune in, as it should be an interesting conversation. Hopefully my local PBS station will be carrying it, but you never know.

I want to get a look at the bad guy, and here what he has to say to Charlie. Lord knows I’ve heard about as much about the Syrian Free Army as I can stand. Did you hear what the rebels did to several of the ancient and beautiful churches in the city of Maloula, about 45 minutes north of Damascus?
