halfway out the door

On vacation next week, so the posts will be sporadic. Definitely none Monday, I’ll be losing my shirt sitting at a blackjack table at Harrah’s in AC. And none Wednesday, I’ll be taking my daughter on her first trip to the Philly Zoo (all together now: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww). But the other days are up in the air. [...]

on the summer tv bandwagon

Meant to catch up on some light summer TV watching last week, but never got around to it. Before we get into it — how boring is this summer’s TV? After two years of having really, really good summer seasons of good, new stuff, this summer seems stocked with reality and nothing else even close [...]

movie music beatdown vol. 5: afternoon delight

Sometimes, there just has to be a cutline. 70s cheese classic Afternoon Delight by Starland Vocal Band has been used, re-used and used again in the world of pop culture about 50 times over. To try and throw all of those instances through the Wednesday MOVIE MUSIC BEATDOWN would take me forever — so we’re narrowing it to [...]

act local, think local

Haven’t cleaned out my inbox in quite a while, but there’s a whole load of cool, fun stuff coming up this weekend and very soon from some PopRox-endorsed sources. As always, if you want to get something in PopRox when I go through a round of local items, e-mail me. When Main Street Jukebox came [...]

comic con-tinuity

Cleaning up from Comic-Con, just as long as we can officially stop falling back on the crutch of calling it a geek fest. That’s getting kinda old, wouldn’t you think? The Iron Man 2 trailer isn’t available over the Internet yet, but it debuted at CC yesterday. Standard reaction from the stars, lots of “We’re [...]

one more place for celebrities to feel violated

Home sick today after a rough night. Let’s just say there was a bucket involved. But I promised five blogs this week, and by golly, that’s what I’m going to give. So here’s some links while you stare out the window and wish it was 5 already, while I stare out the window and hope [...]

why is making a trailer so hard?

Ho hum. Now that we’re past Harry Potter, there really isn’t that much to look forward to in the summer movie season. I’d walk on my hands on a tightrope over the Grand Canyon before I saw Funny People, I have zero expectations for GI Joe and the negative Cannes buzz on Inglorious Basterds has [...]

movie music beatdown, vol. 4: don’t stop believing

Time of death, 10 p.m. May 19. That’s when Don’t Stop Believing, the 1981 Journey hit that only got as high as #8, was staged in the pilot episode of Glee. That makes roughly 8,354,912 movies and TV shows and sports events and karaoke bars where you’ve heard the song in the last five years. So now it’s [...]

yo joe? or no joe?

It didn’t take long to break the schedule. So much for trailer reviews today, my headphones broke at the gym yesterday. Full disclosure — I’m a sweater. At the gym, as I get to about mile 3 of 5, it moves into disgusting proportions the likes you wouldn’t believe. I’d imagine that has something to do [...]

linkage for your day

Time to get back in the swing. Sorry about missing Friday, I was off and didn’t have a second to devote to work. But I have a pooh-load of things I want to get through this week, so here’s the tentative schedule: Monday: Straight links Tuesday: Trailer reviews. All of the big trailers for Christmas event [...]
