By 1972, Alfred Hitchcock was finally able to get some boobs into a movie in the shade of Frenzy, which I believe to be the only Hitchcock movie of the R rated variety. Read the rest of this entry
Vegan Treats in Bethlehem, PA is the best bakery on the planet. You’re welcome. Go there.
You might be thinking, "But I don’t live anywhere near Bethlehem, PA," to which I must respond, "I just told you it’s the best bakery on earth. Rent, lease, buy or steal a car!" There are cannolis to be had!

The 6th season of The Simpsons is one I remember vividly. Even if I don’t necessarily love each and every episode, I certainly can recall the plots, some jokes and various quotes without much effort.

I haven’t watched Rocky from start to finish in… I dunno, at least 10, maybe 15 years. Still, it’s on TV all the time, so I catch bits and pieces every once and while. For me, Rocky Balboa is the quintessential Sylvester Stallone character (sorry, John Rambo and… guy from The Expendables whose name no one knows) – it’s also the best underdog story to ever to grace celluloid. (Sorry, Underdog.) Read the rest of this entry
I watched YES stream from the San Jose Civic on Yahoo! Live featuring the somewhat ragtag combo of Jon Davison (vocals) and Geoff Downes (keyboards) joining YES regulars Alan White, Chris Squire and thy lord Steve Howe. (Worship no guitar players before Steve Howe. Amen.)
