How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966)

by Goat November 25, 2014

The original How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a charming little short animation that was written by Dr. Seuss and narrated by the late great Boris Karloff.  The absolutely fabulous Grinch Song is not sung by Boris Karloff, but actually credited to Thurl Ravenscroft of Tony the Tiger Frosted Flakes, (they’re GREAT!!) fame. You cannot […]

A Charlie Brown Christmas Special (1965)

by Goat November 24, 2014

Virtually everyone is familiar with the comic strip Peanuts created by the late Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000), as well as the ancient animated Christmas TV special.  The main character is Charlie Brown, who lives in a bizarro world, where the landscape is bleak and snow-packed during the winter season. His peers are either cruelly ruthless […]

Martin Folse : Destroyer of the Community.

by L. Ron Mexico November 19, 2014

Every village has an idiot, but usually that idiot doesn’t own a television station. My village is very special.

Citizens of my community are regularly given front row seats to witch hunts orchestrated by […]

Interstellar

by Devon Pack November 19, 2014

Nolan’s film, along with it’s attendant monologues and over-hammering of themes, reminds me of the science fiction of Orson Scott Card, at least from the era before Card degenerated completely into a homophobic Mormon crank. There may not be subtlety, but there is beauty and imagination at work.

Don’t plan on relaxing for a moment either, as this masterpiece […]
