So who's gonna get fired next? So who's gonna get fired next?

A. Evil Elf Sessions who trump’s been wanting to fire for ages

Bats in Hats Bats in Hats

Since somebody claims every day is Caturday, I proclaim today Baturday. And so we have, bats in hats.

Mankiller Mankiller

When history fails to preserve stories from our past and present, it’s up to us to correct the record. Wilma Mankiller, the first woman elected Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, is omitted from most history books despite ranking among revolutionary leaders like Harriet Tubman or Eleanor Roosevelt. She was an…

Shutdown, Shutdown, Shutdown! Shutdown, Shutdown, Shutdown!

And everything looked so promising earlier today.

20 Minutes Into The Future

In preparation for hooking up a Roku for someone, I was checking out some of the free channels that I have but never bother to look at, and what did I find streaming on CW Seed* ... both seasons of the 1987 ABC series Max Headroom.

We should be long past commercials by now

Blipverts is where it’s at. I’m sure for the right price congress will pass and el trumpo will sign a bill protecting the networks from any damages resulting from this new technology. Nobody* cares about the old, sick or unemployed. Except when they vote. And the dead can’t vote.**

Happy Easter Happy Easter

Only two more weeks until the premier of American Gods. I am ridiculously excited.

Fabulous Netflix News!

I was poking about for something to watch and found AbFab is a new release on Netflix.

Wonderfalls (2004)

Wonderfalls might be considered a “weird” show by some. But like the other shows I came up with when racking my brain for examples of weird, I consider it underappreciated and on the cusp of brilliant. I expect no less of a show created by genius Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Hannibal and the much…

Does trump have a theme song yet?  Does trump have a theme song yet? 

It’s been bugging me for a while that there was a song out there that fit trump perfectly. I thought tiny was part of it but not much else, and had done some google research a few times without success. It’s been sitting there, in the back of my mind, percolating.

Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (1964)

It’s frickin’ pouring out-in Buffalo-during the height of winter*. And the rain made me think of one of the loveliest films ever made - The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

Dammit Snacks! Must you ruin all that is good in the world? Dammit Snacks! Must you ruin all that is good in the world?

The Westminster Dog Show is old reliable, a calming nigh-whisper of a brook among the murky and turbulent sea that is everything else on the 1153 cable channels you currently employ. But this year, the proper showcase of best in breeds is adding something new: CATS, MY DUDES!

The Drive-In 

Pie’s Midnight Movie posts this week reminded me of the fact that the majority of the movies I saw during my childhood were at the drive-in rather than a movie theater.

"Suicide for Beginners" (Film) formerly titled "Love Letter" "Suicide for Beginners" (Film) formerly titled "Love Letter"

I’m going to take you back to a simpler time. A time when I was new to twitter*. When the Republican candidate for president’s misogyny was the softer, paternalistic kind of simply trying to protect women from their own choices rather than the aggressive, hostile, violent misogyny (along with racism and xenophobia) of…
