Important Question? podcast

What would convince you to eat another human being? This is our first topic on a new must-listen podcast: Important Question? where we explore and debate such taboos with the profundity and absurdity and hilarity they warrant. Ensuing episodes will examine other grey areas soaking in our collective grey matter, like, I dunno … ruining […]

Gas Up the Stair Car

I was gonna do this whole post about evolving media distribution, and how I dig the new Netflix model because it allows me to shotgun series the way I prefer. But I already pretty much covered that with my House of Cards write-up over at ManArchy. And really, I’m such an Arrested Development fanboy that […]

Trite Tropes

Cinema is a language with its own conventions. The audience must be familiar with certain patterns, even unconsciously, for the transfer of visuals to register properly. Establishing a scene with a wide shot to get our bearings, not crossing the 180-degree axis, keeping the flow of action moving in a single screen direction – folks […]

Meth Lab for Flutie

Shamelessly pilfered from a variety of sources, here’s another collection of fake band names that made me giggle like a seventh grader. Some of these will turn up on MySpace profiles soon enough. I’d warn you about the offensive content, but I’m sure you’re desensitized by now.

Promo Copy Cats

Cutting through network promotions clichéd hyperbole. What they say. What they mean. The show everyone’s talking about.Everyone being those in our programming department whose jobs are on the line. It’s been a ratings disappointment despite the buzz cash we poured into ads and promotion. See the show critics are calling “X.”We doomed it with a […]

Truths, Vol. 6

Another installment of original musings: • Borrowed time and stolen moments are those of which we take the most ownership. • Dan Brown’s cure for writer’s block is to hang upside down. However, there is no known cure for ingesting his actual writing. • Speeding up the music in a Cialis commercial creates a porn […]

Morbid George

A sad, sad day in the kingdom. George Carlin dead at age 71. I had the pleasure of seeing him live (rhymes with dive, not give – but both, really), as did many, thanks to his grueling tour schedule. Especially in later years, he loved to poke fun at Death, and I can only imagine […]

Promoted Roadies

I’ve posted before about my fascination with unusual band names, yet I can never seem to pull the trigger on them for my own usage. And even though this is the kind of material that will probably get me in trouble, I thought I’d share a few of the more offensive rejects we considered for […]

Sexual Reeling

Not long after The Matrix lit up the big screen, I caught a late-night B-movie on Skinemax called The Sexual Matrix. Twenty minutes and five refractory periods later it dawned upon me that one could bring a whole new level of meaning to traditional favorites simply by adding Sexual to the title. Like so: The […]

Eff Love

This is one of my personal favorite timekillers. Understanding the perverse origins of the term rock ‘n’ roll and also knowing how people are so often afraid to say what they really mean, here’s a little game: simply substitute the word Fuck instead of Love in any song title, and you probably have something much […]
