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, [...]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide and the Best of 2012 TV

Ho hum, I guess we’re all partied out heading into the weekend, huh? I’ve been looking for a place to squeeze in my top 10 TV shows of the year, and this seems like a good place to do it before we get swallowed into Oscar nominations next week (they’re on Thursday). A couple things [...]

Best Golden Globes Guesses

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column that will appear in the Pocono Record. Yes, it’s a little early right now to talk about Golden Globe nominations, but for Sunday’s column, when I try to look ahead to the most interesting thing of the upcoming week, it won’t be.) Predicting the Oscar nominations isn’t [...]

More Star Wars, a Great Time to Be a Movie Fan, and Our Local Model

Links for the day, back tomorrow with the Fun Guide: If I’m going to be sick of the Star Wars rumors for the next 2.5 years, then by golly, so are you. I wonder if I could manage to post some kind of Star Wars rumor every day until 2015? Hmmmm. That sounds like a [...]

More of the Most Devoted Pop Culture Fanbases

I loved the idea behind this Vulture ranking of the 25 most devoted pop culture fan bases. It’s a really good read and very informative if you have the time to go through all 25. It’s actually a really good piece of what I define as Internet entertainment journalism these days. It helps that I [...]

We’re Watching You, Romney. And So Is Riggins.

Links, along with some spoiler-ific Walking Dead talk I threw all the way down the bottom: Crowded box office weekend with a crowded outcome, but nothing this week was good enough to take town Taken 2, which repeated as the box office king. That means Argo will have to take its Oscar nomination and be [...]

Random Emmy Morning Thoughts and Questions

Quick Emmy thoughts: I gotta catch up on Homeland. Nothing else was more obvious last night. If Kat Dennings wasn’t in my Top 5 before last night, she is now. Sofia Vergara already was, but she’s now solidified a spot in the top 3 for at least the next 2-3 years. Tom Hanks will kill in the [...]

Getting Ahead of the Fall TV Season

Just a reminder, I’ll be moderating a Q&A with actor Paul Dano over at the Pocono Community Theater on Friday night after a screening of his new movie Ruby Sparks. The movie starts at 7:30, the Q&A should start around 9 or 9:15, I believe. The last one actually went pretty well, hopefully no one [...]

Picking the Emmy Wishlist

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column coming in Sunday’s Pocono Record. And don’t forget, I’ve got two tickets to give away to the Dark Knight Rises premiere party July 19 at the Pocono Community Theater. Enter the contest now, the deadline is Tuesday!) It may not be as glitzy as the Oscar [...]

Counting Down to Breaking Bad, Wilfred and the End of Adam Sandler’s Career

Let’s see if we can keep this a little shorter than usual, I’m kinda pressed for time: Not gonna lie — I smiled when That’s My Boy tanked. Adam Sandler seems like a nice enough guy, and I shouldn’t want him to fail … yet I do. His movies are crap, and it’s a slap in the [...]
