Time Waits For One Man

It will be a sad day when I run out of late 70’s-early 80’s made-for-tv movies (that I haven’t already seen) to watch, but then I will most likely just watch my favorite ones over and over like I do with everything else. One such gem is a forgotten 1980 “science fiction” classic, The Girl, […]

Discussing “The Star Maker” (1981) on The Doll Parts Podcast

Nina and I discuss “The Star Maker,” a two-part, 1981 made for tv movie starring Rock Hudson, Melanie Griffith, Suzanne Pleshette, Teri Copley and Kristian Alfonso. I’ve become fascinated with Rock Hudson’s late career films, which he made toward the end of his life. The made for tv movies in particular have an ominous quality […]

The Vegas Strip War

Despite the fact that Rock Hudson is one of my all-time favorite actors, I had been on the fence about whether to watch what was supposedly his last feature film, a largely forgotten made for TV movie called The Vegas Strip War. It was filmed in 1984, only a year before the Hollywood legend’s death […]

Adaptive Eccentricities and Strategic Social Distancing

Recently on Twitter, someone told me they had forgotten that I was a writer, even though my writing was the reason they originally began following me a few years ago. They were implying that I had either stopped writing or had altered my content to such an extent that I was no longer recognizably producing […]

Block and Awe – Clearing Out the Riff Raff

Though I don’t typically block people I debate or argue with on Twitter, I have recently arrived at the realization that there are so many accounts out there whose content I could do without ever seeing again. I don’t have a lot of patience for fools or pests, and I get tired of seeing certain […]

Decentralized Finance in Stereo!

Mainframe ($MFT) has rebranded as HiFi Finance. I bought into this project last year, originally on the strength of their domain name but also due to the fact that they were one of the earliest to enter into the DeFi space. Rather then rush something into market, they have taken their time in fine tuning […]

The Desk

It might seem a bit odd for someone who has been writing almost nonstop since 1995, but I have not owned a desk in a very long time. The last desk I owned was one that I purchased either at Savers or Goodwill for about $20 in the summer of 2010. It was a small […]

At the LBRY

For both content creators and regular users, there has been an increasing demand for alternatives to Youtube and various other “Big Tech” social media platforms. Having used sites like Vid.me (now defunct), Gab, Parler, and BitChute, I’ve recently decided that one of the more promising “new media” creations is LBRY. LBRY insists that it is […]

Black Sunday

It’s hard to imagine that after being subjected to decades of Hollywood blockbuster action movies―filled with overblown stunts, cheesy Schwarzeneggaresque one-liners and cartoonishly unrealistic premises―one could revisit a 1977 film like Black Sunday without rolling their eyes. Yet, the climactic final 30 minutes of Black Sunday are genuinely gripping. As with his earlier films like […]

Hard Reset

So, it looks like 2015 is back in a bleak way, without all the illusory momentum, naive optimism, sprouting organizational seedlings and the relative openness of the wild west social media frontier. In terms of influence, in those days we were “punching above our weight” (as Spencer used to say) without realizing that we were […]
