That Fabulous Fox Theater

Everyone knows how I love the interior of the Fox Theater. However, they keep the theater so dark taking pictures with a cell phone is virtually impossible! Additionally, when you first come into the theater, while your eyes are adjusting to the darkness, seeing is all but impossible! I all but trampled a very short woman in line at the… Continue reading

Chris Joss Rocks My Sonos & Spotify

Chris Joss (November. 2004) I have to say that I am rather shocked to realize that I have never blogged about Chris Joss! I accidentally discovered his music a few years ago when I was searching for Christopher Cross’s music in my iTunes library. I had not noticed that I was actually searching the iTunes Store and not my personal… Continue reading

Funko Pop Breaking Bad: Walter White Deconstructed

This is the Funko Pop Breaking Bad Walter White at the end of the series. He has been deconstructed, as I call it. He is full on a horrible human being. You can call it FuPo-BrBa-WaWh for short. This particular Funko Pop shows Walter wearing his bad ass glasses and hat. To Funko Pop’s credit, the included the eyes on… Continue reading

Funko Pop Breaking Bad: Walter White

One of the greatest first episodes on TV, in my humble opinion, is the first episode of Breaking Bad1 . Without even a second’s hesitation, the viewer is instantly and abruptly swept into the story in the first few moments of the episode. And then the story begins to unfold, explaining the dramatic opening sequence. Image from Episode 1 of… Continue reading

This is typically done by holding down the… Continue reading

Well, a dear friend of mine had recently mentioned his surprise at my having never watched Breaking Bad, which he described as “frequently called the best television series ever made.” He also highly recommended Better Call… Continue reading

Something Rotten

had heard that Something Rotten was a really good Broadway show, and this weekend we saw it at the Fox Theater. I love going to the Fox if for no other reason than simply to be at the Fox. This historic theater itself is just fantastic, gorgeous, robust in personality and flare. But my post is really about the show,… Continue reading

Okay, Okay! I Was Wrong! I Can Admit that Now.

Back in 2011 I was angry with Netflix for raising the cost of their DVD shipping service in an apparent attempt to get users to discontinue it and opt into their streaming service. The streaming service had such a limited selection at the time. The poor way they executed their changes seemed to have greatly annoyed me at the time,… Continue reading

TV Series Review: W1A

I’m not one to recommend television series. In fact, the last TV series I did recommend was the BBC’s extraordinary dramatic release: The Crown1. I’m eagerly awaiting the second season. But, until then, I suggest for your viewing pleasure something different—something entirely different: W1A. The title, W1A, is the London postal code for the address of the BBC. The comedy… Continue reading
