I’m watching ‘Storytellers’ with Bruce Springsteen.  I don’t mean I’m watching the episode of ‘Storytellers’ where musician Bruce Springsteen is featured while he tells the stories of his popular songs.  I mean, sitting next to me on the couch while I watch the TV show ‘Storytellers’ is Bruce Springsteen.  He stopped by because we were going to play NCAA College … Read More

A new clip for the upcoming Avengers 2 has the members placing their bets on whether or not they are worthy of ruling Asgard.  Can Iron Man, Cap or War Machine stand toe-to-toe with the god of thunder?  Check the clip out! I personally love the reaction to Cap’s attempt.  Subtle but I think well-placed.  ENJOY! “Avengers: Age of Ultron” … Read More

Uranium Drive-In

Uranium Drive-In is an interesting and completely engaging documentary on the question of whether a poor town should embrace the opening of a uranium mill to help its economy. This documentary doesn’t rely on narration or too many title cards, but rather lets the area’s citizens be the voices on the issue. And because of that, we really feel for … Read More

Gotham Characters

After five abysmal episodes, Gotham is back with a “Halloween” themed episode titled “Spirit of the Goat.” I’m sure will be in for an episode not unlike the 1987 Dragnet film. Starting off with a flashback from 10 years ago, a bald man says “I am the Spirit of the Goat,” dons an ill-fitting black executioner’s mask, and punches a … Read More
