I’m in a magenta-haze about Meghan McCain. Dizzy and delighted by her presence on the national radar, I’ve let my emotions get the better of me. I find Megs to be affable and independent-minded. Her politics are shit but her moxy is magnetic. She’s also trying to make a gig in the media scene [...]
From the department of overused sayings that have no meaning:
I consider myself an Internet enthusiast. I’m a web booster. I believe in THE fragmented, democratized, glorious, rainbow-riot of the web culture (Wulture?). I think cats with broken grammar are hilarious and that Carles is our reluctant mascot. I think tumblr is the best way to [...]
The trailer is now online over on Apple in HD.
There is a Full Frontal Kevin Bacon in “Wild Things” joke tightly nestled somewhere in here but I have too much dignity to make it. I’m totally resentful of any cherished childhood tome being made into a blockbuster. I have purposefully ignored everything having to do [...]
If Dora is being “imagined” to age along with her demographic, we wonder what would our generation’s most beloved tender-hearted B42K authentic cartoon icon DOUG FUNNY be like if he aged with us?
It’s been awhile since I wrote. Blame tumblr. Anyhow, Ever since Skeeter started on his PhD in Blue-or-Darker Studies, he’s [...]

Oh Nicki! You sleepy eyed temptress!
For two seasons I despised her character. It wasn’t even a hate-love of a good villain (a la Finch on the UK Office or Cy Toliver in Deadwood). I found her character too conniving to be compelling. But now, I think she’s one of the most exquisitely written characters on [...]
In an effort to make their character “grow” with their demographic, Mattel has given Dora the Explorer a “makeover” for Nickalodeon. Mattel, of course, is the maker of Barbie, so I suppose we should just be grateful that they didn’t turn her into a freakishly proportioned white girl who never leaves her mansion and hangs [...]
Oh, internet. Is there anything you can’t be blamed for?
Remember when everyone just thought the internet would turn us all into porn addicts? The next mass diagnosis of society via the armchair psychologists (read: community college drop-outs who watch a lot of reality television) of the world is primed to be Narcissistic Personality Disorder, or [...]
Troll 2 is a holocaust of ineptitude but it is a total joy to watch. This is one of those rare treats that you would file under a GREAT bad movie. In the case of Troll 2 it seems to be that know nobody knew they were in a bad movie until it was [...]
