I’m not sure if this is “irony,” but it’s odd. “Kafkaesque,” maybe.

I’ve been watching a lot of classic TV via my Netflix account, streaming through my Blu-Ray player. Seeing the old shows has been like seeing old childhood friends. Last night, I continued my viewing of Dragnet, the archtypical cop show. In one episode, Sergeant Joe Friday speaks to a group of recent high school graduates […]

Hippies… they wanna save the earth, but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad.

| April 19, 2010

Last night — this morning, really — after work, via the Netflix streaming capability of my Blu-Ray player (woohoo!) I watched a bunch of episodes of that great classic police show, Adam-12. During the episode “I’m Still A Cop,” wherein Officer Malloy (Martin Milner) balances his duty as a law enforcement officer with his part-time […]

Quick Netflix Review: Dexter

| April 12, 2010

Dexter: Season 1Starring Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz, Jennifer Carpenter, Erik King Quick review: How and why did it take so long for there to be an entry in the vigilante serial killer genre? And… is it wrong to occasionally root for the serial killer? 4½ stars It’s a Showtime production, so caveats about language […]

Coulter in Canada

| March 24, 2010

Ann Coulter had, shall we say, a bit of difficulty getting her message out to college students in Ottawa earlier this week. The intolerance of the Left was on full display. Fortunately, however, she had a full hour, free from rude interruptions or censorship, on Canadian TV with chat show host Michael Coren.* Smitty at […]

I’ve gotten a ton of traffic this past week — the usual search result for “naked chicks with guns” having been supplanted as #1 by searches for pictures of curling. Odd, that. I can’t imagine why either would be a popular search…. For the record, I have in fact been watching a lot of curling […]

Prepare to be… well, not amazed, or thrilled, or anything that implies “goodness” or “rightness.”

As Mætenloch says over at Ace of Spades HQ, Everyone should watch it once. But only a fool watches it twice. You have been warned. I’m only putting it here for your viewing “pleasure.” I’ve already seen it, while I was on convalescent leave after surgury two years ago. I think it delayed my recovery. […]

Brain Dead

| November 3, 2009

I’m operating on a total lack of sleep last night/this morning, so I’m not at my thinkin’est best… indeed, I’m a vitual zombie at this point. I’ve been led to believe there have been some elections today; I hear the New Jersey governor’s race is within the margin of fraud. I suppose I could turn […]

Geek Bliss

| October 22, 2009

One really, truly great thing about being a denizen of the wee hours of the morning: I’m getting about three T1s of download speed — and not irritating my neighbors while doing so. I’m getting a bunch of episodes of Law & Order: UK. Yes, that’s right — UK. They’re everywhere.

Mycah vs. Mycah

| June 18, 2008

I’ve always thought Mycah was a pretty cute girl. Via my referrer logs, I see there’s another Mycah out there… with two M’s in “Emmerson,” as opposed to the just one in use hereabouts. There must be something about the name “Mycah.”

Kvetching about late-night TV ads

| June 18, 2008

I see entirely too much late-night TV. “Too much” not because what I watch is bad — hello? Red Eye, anyone? — but rather due to the commercials. Whether they’re actually full-blown insipid, or just have a slight something that annoys, they all get under my skin. Some of the ones seen this week: Dr. […]
