America’s Favorite Hobo’s Bridge

America’s Favorite Hobo’s Bridge

I took a wrong turn the other day and ended up on the Boxcar Willie Memorial Overpass. It wasn't a particularly fancy overpass, which I guess is fitting. And there wasn't much to see. Just cars passing under the overpass and a surprising lack of trains. And there...

Harry In Your Pocket

If you're persistent enough, you can find movies on Amazon Prime that are older than my kids. I've been plumbing the depths of Amazon Prime and stumbled into a genre I've never really watched, forgettable James Coburn movies (so most James Coburn movies). I recently...

The Last Band of the Apocalypse’s Merch Table

Caught between state fair gigs when the bombs went off, a struggling cover band soon found itself the last band in the world. With this dramatic shift in market forces, they decided to cast off their pre-end moniker and rebrand themselves as Harmeggedon, the most...

Star Wars: The Hallway

This is brilliant. At some point there was a brainstorm at Hasbro where they determined that there couldn't possibly be a character, vehicle, setting or moment left from Star Wars that wasn't already a toy. Then someone, probably a smarmy young upstart trying to make...

What I’m Reading: Make Room Make Room

I love a good dystopian tale. I also love reading things in Charlton Heston's voice. So I am looking forward to finally reading the book that inspired Soylent Green. Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison. In 1798 Thomas Malthus published his Essay on the Principle...

What I’m Reading: Pyramids by Terry Pratchett

I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. I didn’t discover the Discworld books until just a couple of years ago. And since there’s 40 something of them, I’ve got a way to go. I jumped around for a bit at first and read some Death books and the City Watch novels. But I’ve...

The Mammoth Flautist

          The modern-day flautist gets a bad rap, probably. The flute has a light sound. It’s small. True. it’s no more phallic than some of the other instruments, but having to make that kissy face the whole time doesn’t help. And in Peter...
