Concert review: Retro Futura Tour, Cleveland, Ohio

Retro Logo Large

Performing Arts Center at the Cleveland Masonic Hall August 25, 2014 The Retro Futura tour pulled into Cleveland limping, though not artistically by any means. A rough trip from Boston that included a broken down bus forced the show’s start time to be pushed back an hour. The crowd seemed unfazed by this development, likely because it was a small … Read More

Does almond milk make you gassy?  It does me.  I switched over from cow milk because of a certain digestive result that I would get with drinking that.  Almond milk doesn’t take it to that extreme, but it puts me on the edge of digestive glory.  It is a problem today, although I also switched over to eating Raisin Bran, … Read More

Fuhrer Cult And Megalomania DVD

“Führer” Cult And Megalomania: The Nazi Party Rally Grounds In Nuremberg is an interesting documentary focusing on Adolf Hitler’s plans for Nuremberg and the Nazi party rallies that were held there. It’s interesting in part because the film deals mostly with the 1930s, before the war, a time when Hitler was concentrating on grandiose architectural plans rather than world conquest. … Read More

K2: Siren Of The Himalayas

K2: Siren Of The Himalayas opens with a shot of three people against a background of bluish white. These figures are small and dark in the frame against nature’s backdrop, but they are clearly determined. A title card tells us: “As of June 2009, only 302 people had stood on the summit of K2.” The film then takes us back … Read More

Live Nude Girls DVD Cover

I’ve always been amused by signs advertising “Live Nude Girls.” I would love to know the set of circumstances that led to them to thinking the first word was necessary. The film Live Nude Girls sheds no light on this issue. It is about a man who inherits a strip club from his uncle, and… Well, that’s it, really. Shane … Read More
