The 4 Categories of Star Wars Fans

I love all sci-fi from books to movies to tv series so there are times like these where I can step back and watch what makes a “true fan” of a particular franchise. As an observer, I find that ‘Star Wars’ fans fall into 4 categories that have a similarity to religious divisions. They areContinue reading “The 4 Categories of Star Wars Fans”

Star Trek: Discovery First Episode, ‘Brother’

Who needs movies when Disco with its special effects and script are going to be this good! Glad to see more of the bridge crew and development of Saru and Tilly. After the seriousness of the 1st season, it’s good to see some lightheartedness (“cry like a baby tribble in a kill zone” 🤣 ). Anson MountContinue reading “Star Trek: Discovery First Episode, ‘Brother’”

From The Hill: “GOP Woman on Kavanaugh Allegations: ‘What boy hasn’t done this in high school?’”

The title of this article almost made me throw-up. The report was about an interview CNN conducted with five women from Florida about Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She says that when they both attended the high school he had pinned her down and “tried to remove her clothesContinue reading “From The Hill: “GOP Woman on Kavanaugh Allegations: ‘What boy hasn’t done this in high school?’””

Racism, a thought.

Although it is widely thought among Americans that racism is a bad thing it seems to be generally tolerated. It’s kind of like a group of the loudest, most obnoxious people you can think of in a crowded room. Some will distance themselves, “If you don’t pay them the attention they’ll quiet down and goContinue reading “Racism, a thought.”

‘Roseanne’ Cancellation by ABC

ABC canceled the popular ‘Roseanne’ reboot because of the furor caused by the malicious and controversial tweets posted on Twitter by Roseanne Barr and they have rightly done so. I will not dignify the remarks by repeating them here though, by now, we have all read them and know them for the racist comments thatContinue reading “‘Roseanne’ Cancellation by ABC”

Streaming Review: ‘Babylon Berlin’

The wonderful thing about Netflix is that every once in a while they present a gem of a series you would not have known about if they hadn’t carried it. ‘Babylon Berlin’ is one such jewel. It will draw you in and keep you interested with its engaging characters, intricate plot, and cinematographic style thatContinue reading “Streaming Review: ‘Babylon Berlin’”

Post #SOTU Commentary

#POTUSTrump‘s #StateOfTheUnion speech was more of symbolic testaments than of real substance. Other than the brief mention of rebuilding our infrastructure and his #DACADeal most of the speech was about what others, his invited guest in the chamber, had done and empty words of rhetoric. It wouldn’t have been so bad if the speech hadContinue reading “Post #SOTU Commentary”

‘The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat’ X-Files Season 11, Episode 4 Review

I love the X-Files. I have been a fan of Chris Carter’s show since it first introduced us to Fox Mulder and Dana Scully back in the 90’s. So, when Carter decided to do a limited run I was more than enthusiastic about it. Now we’re into the second season of this limited run andContinue reading “‘The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat’ X-Files Season 11, Episode 4 Review”

“Smug feeling …from the rich and famous”, The Golden Globe Awards 2018

  A local reporter tweeted, “Here we go again. A group of rich and famous “stars” celebrating each other’s careers while pretending to laugh at jokes that are falling about as flat as the champagne sitting on the tables draped with white table clothes. Privileged? Yep. Relevant? Funny? Dare is say, no.” (https://twitter.com/rooprajfox2). In aContinue reading ““Smug feeling …from the rich and famous”, The Golden Globe Awards 2018”
