Old School…..

Tue ,02/10/2018

Aw, Jaws, we hardly knew ye….funny interview and he gets in a couple good zings on Dave, which is rare (helped immediately then by the cameramen, whom I’m sure weren’t passing that up :))

Funniest bit is at the 12 minute mark – Burt Reynolds, RIP.

RIP, wild man….

While in the car today, they said it was Keith Moon’s bday, and that he would have been 72 years old (he only made it to 32, sadly, he passed in 1978).

While I don’t think he was the absolute greatest in rock (nor is Ginger Baker, although HE certainly thinks so) – he’s definitely one of the all time greats – not for many of the same reasons as most, though – he’s fairly unpredictable, and manic, and undisciplined to boot. But in the crazy world of The Who – he was a perfect fit.

RIP, Keith – somewhere I hope you are looking down from the biggest set of drums any cloud ever tried to hold aloft, and still driving everyone crazy along the way….

Silicon Valley – have to agree.

Thu ,14/06/2018

Interesting article on the HBO series Silicon Valley – I think this year has been off, in part for the reasons they mention, but in part because I think the ‘character feuding’ they describe has been largely a distraction – I think only near the end of the year do they belatedly get back on track with Gavin being the big nemesis, Jian-Yang causing problems like before and the characters succeeding in spite of themselves – the whole competition between Dinesh and Guilfoil (IMTHO) has been largely lame this year – before it was just college-boy one-upmanship but this year it seemed to get more ‘personal’ and just seemed lame.

One other thing to consider – if you aren’t IN the tech industry, they covered most of the rampant silliness in the first four seasons, so it’s not surprising they are running out of Bay Area subject matter to cover, at least to me – but Mike Judge is a very smart guy, he’ll come up with something good I’m sure….

HBO’s Silicon Valley is struggling to stay relevant

Right. Meow. (April 20)

Fri ,06/04/2018

..as in, I wish April 20 was Right. Meow.

From the Seattle PI:
In certain smoke-filled dorm rooms across the land, this may be the spring’s most buzzed-about movie. It’s a sequel to the cult 2001 comedy about Vermont Highway Patrol troopers who refuse to let crime get in the way of a good time. Here they venture into French-speaking Canada and pretty quickly test that country’s reputation for politeness. As they say in Quebec: Stupide mais drôle. April 20

David O’Doherty…

he hasn’t done a ‘My Beefs‘ segment in some time, but still has the Casio – too funny!

also, the latter two bits from Would I Lie to You are very funny, especially the ‘umlaut’ discussion in the first one, and David Mitchell losing his mind in the second…

SIFF short sci fi films, 2018…

Sun ,25/03/2018

In what’s become something of an annual tradition, a buddy and I went to the SIFF SFF Encore film festival today. While all the films were well made, many this year weren’t really as ‘sci fi’ as in years past.

Here’s the films I was able to find online – pretty much my faves from the show – enjoy!

I don’t think much of Jimmy Fallon’s interview skills, but he can definitely do impressions….!
