Bojack Horseman season 1 review


Bojack Horseman is the Netflix original that stole our hearts this weekend.  Season 1 (2014) is full of every ingredient you need to make a delicious comedy cotten candy treat that’s so good you eat it till you barf.  Here’s why.  Read the rest of this entry

REMINDER: Animaniacs was amazing


In case you’ve forgotten or never knew, Animaniacs was one of the best cartoon comedies of the 1990s if not of all time.  That show was so well written and appealed to both adults and children all at once with such brilliance that I can pick a bunch of clips from different episodes and have some of them loosely tie together.  Such was the magic of that show.  Read the rest of this entry

Rocky III movie review


First, there was Rockya classic film, a character study of the most likable character possibly ever.  Then, there was the sequel, Rocky II, and we dove further down the rabbit hole and got an extra montage.  I imagine that Rocky III was supposed to be the final installment, and I think you could argue cases for this being the best and the worst Rocky movie up to this point.  Let’s dig in!  Read the rest of this entry

1 Reason the Republicans are in trouble (GOP Debate)


gop-presidential-primary-2015-fox-news-debate-god

If you watched the Fox News/Facebook GOP Presidential Debate, you heard more of the same:  the GOP believes that the Federal Government has no place in determining the public school curriculum but does want to regulate women’s reproductive health issues. That sort of thing.  Then there’s the Donald Trump/Megyn Kelly stuff… not surprising.  (Clearly, FOX had an agenda in the debate and boy did Trump take the bait!)  But none of this stuff is surprising.  Neither is the Facebook question above – but it is a big problem for the GOP.  I shall explain!  Read the rest of this entry

Observations in Pictures 8/11/15


question-mark-cloud

Beyond this Question Mark Cloud looking photo (which always reminds me of this), this post could alternatively be titled, “Merchants sell the darndest things,” because that’s what we’ve really got going.  (Also, if you can’t see the cloud int he question mark… I hear ya.  I might be stretching my visual interpretation a bit…)  Anyway, the comedy is coming, I swear!

Last Band Banned by Rattrap Bumpkin


rattrap-bumpkin-Last Band Banned

 

Last Band Banned is the most recent effort from Rattrap Bumpkin, a New York based self-described pirate rock band.  When you listen to these tunes, you don’t know whether you should hug your sweetheart, punch a jerk or drink hard alcohol alone by candlelight – any or all seem appropriate.  Read the rest of this entry

Divergent Series: Insurgent movie review


Like most YA novel adaptations, Divergent wasn’t grounded in any reality I recognized, yet the movie worked well enough.  Fortunately, Insurgent had the luxury of skipping the frustrating (and stupid) exposition and let us get right into watching the heroes do what they do best.  (Run, jump, punch, murder, etc.)  It’s basically the same movie as the first one and yet more than the sum of its parts.  Let me explain!  Read the rest of this entry

Jaws quick movie review


What can one say about Jaws?  It’s the first summer blockbuster.  It basically created the film industry as we know it today and is a legend in its own right.  It’s spawned countless parodies, references and even theme park rides, not to mention three lackluster sequels.  All of this pontificating is me saying it’s a great movie.  Read the rest of this entry

Oh the humanity! (Or: How I learned to start worrying and hate the Port Authority Bus Terminal)


nj-transist-port-authority-bus-terminal

Buses carry a fixed amount of people (it’s printed on the side of the bus), yet they can’t design a waiting area that accommodates said number of passengers. Let this serve as a metaphor for your experience with the Port Authority and NJ Transit.

It’s been 10 years since I regularly made the commute from New Jersey to Midtown Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal via New Jersey Transit, but Dr. MyFiancee still fights the good fight each and every day.  And although nearly 4000 days have passed since my own bi-daily excursions into the unknown, little has changed, if anything.  Read the rest of this entry

We Accidently Went to a Bernie Sanders Rally


Bernie Sanders Rally 3

This is my surprised face – or, watch me #feelthebern.

Dr. MyFiancee and I were downtown, chilling before the Toad the Wet Sprocket show started, wandered into a bar and BOOM!  Political rally.   Didn’t see that coming.  Read the rest of this entry

Toad the Wet Sprocket at Irving Plaza (Wed Jul 29, 2015)


Toad the Wet Sprocket at Irving Plaza on Wed Jul 29, 2015

“All I want, is some sharper focus, to see the band, because it’s blurry…”

It was (for me) the 90s again last night at Irving Plaza for an hour or so as Dr. MyFiancee took me to hear Toad the Wet Sprocket drop their brand of alternative rock here in New York City.  My phone’s camera would not cooperate (selective focus), but I kinda like the pics anyway.  Read the rest of this entry

“12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer” is the third episode from season three of Inside Amy Schumer and it’s one of the most effective parodies I’ve ever seen.  Read the rest of this entry
