Live Chat Coming Friday!

Quick hitter here under the guise of being a blog post, but it’s really just a reminder about the PopRox live chat Friday at noon: At the Record, we get dozens of faxes/emails a day from police departments. Almost none of them are remotely interesting. But today, I took one of the fax that claimed [...]

The Rise and Fall (and Rise?) of Craig Kilborn

Not to slam on local TV station Fox 56, but the actions it took last year — actions perfectly within its right and power — are now keeping most of us in the Poconos from seeing the new Craig Kilborn talk show, The Kilborn File. I’m just not whether to thank them or not. The [...]

Want a Good New TV Show? Cable is Where It’s At (still)

Here it comes, the daily promotion for another PopRox live chat. We’ll be doing it July 2 at noon and the first Friday of every month for as long as people keep coming around. I had fun with the last one, so we figured what the heck. There will be more promotion coming up for it [...]

Four Summers, Four Right Picks

Sorry I was gone for so long, though I’m sure no one shed a tear. That leaves plenty to catch up on: I just had a great vacation, one of my best, most relaxing ever. Yet one of the happiest, most satisfying moments of the vacation came Sunday when I found out the official PopRox box office bomb [...]

McClane and Bauer — together?

Life is good when you drive in to work and hear Get It Together by Beastie Boys with Q-Tip, Sublime’s What I Got, Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain, I Alone by Live and The Reflex by Duran Duran pretty much all in a row. So I’ll try and keep this happy today and give you some extra links [...]

Does Glee Need Fixing Already?

(HEAVY SPOILER ALERTS FOR GLEE AND JUSTIFIED, BE WARNED!!!) Remember Stewie Griffin’s compliment sandwich on Family Guy? That’s what I’m going to do with Glee’s season finale last night. Here’s the first piece of bread: For the last year, I’ve done nothing but give you reasons to watch Glee, with good reason. The show followed up [...]

The Best Summer Movie of All Time

How would you define the best summer movie of all time? Over at Cinematical, they’re trying to figure out just that with 64-summer-movie tournament, a great idea I should have thought of first. Crap. The problem is it becomes a popularity contest. Oh really, Star Wars is getting crazy amounts of votes? Who would have [...]

Awards Are for Suckers

Best “Duh” headline of the week: “At MTV award shows, party matters more than prizes.” Thanks, professor! We all bag on Hallmark for making up holidays just to sell some cards. And we should. But what about networks that make up awards shows? MTV was on the cutting edge of this technology back in the [...]
