boycott time warner

Happy New Year everyone! I’m taking New Year’s off, but I’ll be around Friday morning to find some news for you. Until, then here’s an extra long list of stuff today. This just came to my attention Tuesday night while I was watching the Cartman-Wendy fight on a South Park rerun last night on my [...]

rip sharp

I’ve been putting this off for a week now. That’s long enough. Sharp is dead. Wow. That was tough to type. But it’s true. After this week’s issue — out on Thursday and centering on the best of the year in pop culture — Sharp will no longer be distributed through the Poconos. I can [...]

one before done

Some news of the day. I’m following this up with a big announcement tomorrow, one I’m putting off making because it’s bad news. So enjoy this good batch of links while you can — tomorrow won’t be pleasant for fans of Sharp. I know I probably take TV a little too seriously, and I know [...]

rip vhs

Am I the only one who almost cries when they read this? I always say the MTV Video Awards is the one major pop culture item that debuted, peaked and died in my lifetime, but I’ve got to add VHS tapes to that list. My VHS tape library was pretty big until a couple years [...]

how come I couldn’t be britney’s dad?

Here’s an early merry Christmas, since I’m off for the holiday starting later today. I’m crazy excited because I get to spend my daughter Jenna’s first Christmas with her. It may sound easy, but in this business, I’ve found myself working a lot of Christmases. So it’s a gift just to be off for Christmas and Christmas Eve. [...]

i am the law!

Nothing better than a snowstorm to help you catch up on DVDs: MAN ON WIRE: I’m petrified of heights. There, I said it. Just typing that sentence made my palms sweat. I didn’t envision a high place or anything, I’m just that scared of heights. At the same time, I’m fascinated with them. I want to [...]

2009: the year of the geriatric rockers

Look, we’re not going anywhere today, not for a while. So sit back and waste some time at work or at home with stories about Bono, Springsteen, Paula Abdul and Mickey Rourke. And no, I will not go back into my Delorean, drive 88 miles per hour and go back to 1985! I heard about this [...]

sag-gy awards season

Maybe I got a little too hyped up at the beginning of awards season, because now I’m ready to crash like Tom Hanks trying to suck the alcohol out of vanilla extract on “Family Ties.” The SAG Award nominees came out today and as preposterous as I think some of them are, I don’t have the energy to [...]

how stars can ruin shows

None of these are very good news. At least I don’t think so. If you have a weak stomach, feel free to look away: Great. Just freakin’ great. Jessica Alba has basically destroyed everything she’s touched in the last five years, and now she’s guesting on the Super Bowl episode of The Office. Unless she [...]

TV to movie rules to live by

This is getting out of hand.   Fresh off the continued news that Arrested Development is inching closer and closer to becoming a full-fledged big screen movie, plus the success of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut, The Simpsons Movie and even Reno: 911!: Miami, it seems like every show runner and their producer brother is talking about turning [...]
