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, [...]

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 [...]

Someone Needs to Let Me Pick an 80s Movie Soundtrack

Links for a beauteous Wednesday: RIP, Tie-Dye Dave. That just sucks. In the 90s, and early 2000s, I thought it was going to be soooo supercoolawesome when people finally started making 80s nostalgia pieces. I was getting quite sick of the 60s and 70s nostalgia/homage movies, and knew it was only a matter of time before [...]

Putting on the Bad Idea Jeans to Make a Commercial

Wednesday links: Good comedy is under attack, people. Don’t believe me? What other reason can we gleam from Bridesmaids being so successful and critically acclaimed? Are we that starved for good comedy that we’ll accept a lesser comedy just because someone takes off her makeup then poops in a sink at a wedding dress shop? [...]

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 [...]

If the DVD Wars Haven’t Begun Already, They Have Now

Way too light on local links this week. What, is everyone still hungover? In the absence of that, let’s hit some links: Hollywood studios don’t like being taken advantage of. So when they built a business model in the early 90s that depended on DVD sales, they just didn’t expect things like Netflix, Redbox or OnDemand [...]

The Family Movie Smackdown

Let’s hit the links: Happy Feet 2 might be the luckiest movie of the year. The movie bombed like silly, but no one even noticed because of Twilight’s major haul. So instead of having to answer questions like, “How many times can you make a kids movie disguised as environmental propaganda?” Warner Brothers gets to [...]

Thanks for a Great Year!

This is probably the last post of 2010, so I just wanted to take a minute and sincerely thank everyone who’s been a reader this year. Not just faithful readers, but all readers. It boggles my mind that people find anything I have to say even remotely interesting. I’m just a guy with a keyboard, [...]

It Could End No Other Way

We’re backed up so let’s hit the links. Gonna pick the winners for the Wurst Festival tickets later this afternoon, and I’ll post the winner tomorrow. It’s confirmed now what we pretty much already knew — Edward Norton won’t be playing the Hulk in The Avengers movie. Both sides are saying talks were in progress for [...]
