Uh Oh … the Last Links Blog Post?

I’ve put this off as long as I could, but just so everyone knows, this is my last week at the Pocono Record. I’ve been asked to write a farewell column as my final Sunday PopRox column in the paper, so that’s where I’ll save all the mushy stuff for. I’ll post it here tomorrow, [...]

The Acting Pairs You Always Wanted to See (even if you didn’t know it)

(This is a preview of the PopRox column in Sunday’s paper, with some added Arrested Development goodness here. SEO, bitches.) When Jim Carrey and Steve Carell were cast as a pair of dueling magicians in the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, it hit us. “Why didn’t they think of this before?” Their careers had somewhat [...]

Smart Move, Seth

Some quick links for your Wednesday: Good for Seth MacFarlane to pretty much give the world the middle finger by saying he doesn’t want to host the Oscars again. What the frigg did anyone expect? The opening number basically looked and felt like a live-action Family Guy episode. The Lincoln assassination joke sounds exactly like [...]

Your End of the World Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

If you read the paper over the weekend, you’ll see why I only have a couple minutes to bang out this holiday edition of the Fun Guide. But we’re getting back to a big one next Friday, a special edition for New Year’s Eve because no one really waits until NYE to finalize their plans. [...]

If You Employ Chevy Chase, You Stink

Let’s clean out some bookmarks and get some new stuff in: This whole Chevy Chase/Community thing is just a freaking nightmare for fans who have had to sit around and watch him ruin one of the best comedies on TV from the inside out. I really, really hope he never gets another acting job, ever, [...]

Bourne, Spice Girls, Comics, Trailers. It’s a Lot.

Let’s clean out the bookmarks today, so some of this might be a tad old, but it’s stuff I’ve been meaning to get to: There it is! It’s in there! Someone finally did it! Someone from Warner Bros. finally came out and blamed the Colorado movie theater shooting tragedy for less-than-expected box office results for Dark [...]

Win Tickets to a Paul Dano Q&A!

Paul Dano, best known as a star of Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood, will be in the area to screen his new movie Being Flynn at the Pocono Community Theater in East Stroudsburg on April 27. The screening [...]

Won’t the Real Don Draper Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up

Quick hits today, let’s go … There was a time when Nip/Tuck was my favorite TV show. I was obsessed with it, and mostly, with Christian Troy. Not necessarily Julian McMahon, who played Christian, but the character of Christian. He was hysterical. Everything he said was either off-the-wall funny or really, really important. Self-centered and shallow, but [...]

RIP Don Cornelius, Super Bowl Movie Trailers, Ferris Bueller Explains Himself and More

Looking to compile as many Pocono Super Bowl bar party specials as humanly possible for Friday’s blog, but I’m not going to be looking up every single bar’s Facebook/web pages. So if you’re a bar and you have something going, or you just want to let me know about what your favorite bar is doing [...]

TV Shows That May (Or May Not) Be Coming to a Theater Near You

We’re living in an age where just because a TV show gets canceled — or is about to be canceled — that doesn’t mean it’s dead. Shows can take the DirecTV route (Friday Night Lights, Damages), the canceled-but-resurrected road (Breaking In) or the ever-popular, hardly ever working online petition chance. None of those is more popular [...]
