Movie Review – The Gentlemen

We're obviously early in, but I already have my favorite film of 2020 thus far. I LOVE a character driven story, and Guy Ritchie is a filmmaker that really shines when he does these kinds of films.'Lock,...

So, How Orange is the Donald’s Face Really?

Let’s take a closer look at how color saturation and other features in Photoshop might have been used to spawn the latest Presidential meme. If any of you are interested in an orange face you can pick up...

Another Example of How Time Can Mess with Your Head

Today I would like to take the opportunity to harsh your mellow, but proper, if this album sees rotation in your playlist still.

This album is officially 50 years old.
FIVE. ZERO.
Half a century.

To put that into perspective –
If you went back 50 years prior to it’s release date, you’d arrive at October 22, 1919.
This is seven years after the Titanic sank.
11 years after the Model T became available.
Five years after the first commercial airline flight.
Four years after one could finally make a call across continents.
Television wouldn’t be for sale until 1927, and wouldn’t become common place until the ’50s.
Also in 1927, the first movie featuring sound ‘The Jazz Singer’ would be released.

The top hits of 1919 were –

Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me” by Ted Lewis & His Jazz Band.
“You Ain’t Heard Nothing Yet” by Al Jolson.
“How Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down On The Farm” by Nora Bayes.
“A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody” by John Steel.
“I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” by Ben Selvin’s Novelty Orchestra.

My point is that you are INCREDIBLY old now.
If you were someone that remembered an album from 1919 fondly in 1969, you’d would have seemed THIS archaic.

Whereas *I*, am Metal AF, bro.

So I eventually landed on this podcast today. It's the story of the disappearance and clear murder of Kristin Smart in 1996. Now, it's rather infuriating because it's abundantly clear who killed her, but...

Shamokin Must Be a MAGICAL Place to Live

This was JUST brought to my attention last night, but you may have seen it before. Imagine a town so bereft of anything culturally relevant, that a Dunkin' DoNITS being temporarily closed could cause this...
