Best TV Series That You’ve Never Heard Of: The Middleman @OKBJGM

Best TV Series That You’ve Never Heard Of: The Middleman – Clean living was his credo and justice was his bride… Of all of the things I foresaw myself doing in the Summer of 2008, none of them included watching ABC Family at all. It was a network that had never hit my radar, probably because most of the shows were aimed at a far younger audience than I was with premises that did not correlate with my viewing preferences. That all changed when a YouTube promo for a new…

Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff by Michael Nesmith – Nerfed Llamas Review

Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff by Michael Nesmith – Nerfed Llamas Review It is no secret that I am a fan of Michael Nesmith’s artistic endeavors. On this blog alone I have reviewed Tape Heads (a comedic feature film with John Cusack & Tim Robbins that Nesmith produced) and I have highlighted 30 of Papa Nez’s best tracks spanning the majority of his music performing career. Bottom line: I love me some Nez. As a mere mortal of 40 years of age, my appreciation for Nesmith came directly from watching…

The Lost Art of Winning an Argument

The Lost Art of Winning an Argument This is going to be a short post, but an important one. I have noticed a disturbing trend, especially in how it relates to how humans interact online and in person these days, where arguments are formed on the basis of pejorative name calling and ill advised blanket statements that come from group think and not a place of informed study. Perhaps because I had four years of competitive debate under my belt at a young age I learned the art of winning an…

Riverdale Season Premiere Impressions – Archie’s Realistic Mysteries! #Riverdale

Riverdale Season Premiere Impressions – Archie’s Realistic Mysteries! As an avid comic book reader, and an outspoken Archie Comics advocate, it was with some palpable hesitation that I sat through the first episode of the CW’s new TV series Riverdale, which takes elements of the classic comic and sets it smack dab in the middle of the bizarre murder investigation of popular teenager, Jason Blossom . Advertised by the network as “A subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome…

Hot Take on the Nintendo Switch Live Event and Massive After Event Information Dump

Hot Take on the Nintendo Switch Live Event and Massive After Event Information Dump Last night marked the full official reveal of Nintendo’s latest home console, the Switch. Coming in at just over an hour long, the live event presentation gave a detailed overview of what the Switch console is, how it works, and the multiple ways you can play on the device. The Switch is a hybrid console that doubles as a home gaming device and a portable as well which makes it appealing, as you can play games on…

Modern Superhero Comics and Me – A Love/Hate Story

Modern Superhero Comics and Me – A Love/Hate Story After a long and successful NaNoWriMo push this month (50,000 words written towards an original novel in one month, I did it – WOOHOO!), I felt that it would be nice to take a break from typing on a novel and instead kick back, relax, and read some comic books. Not just any kind of comic books, I wanted to read some new iconic superhero romps, preferably featuring my favorite characters, like Spider-Man or Captain America. By a strange stroke of…

Let’s Celebrate #GlobalJamesBondDay By Ranking All The Bond Songs! @007

Let’s Celebrate Global James Bond Day By Ranking All The Bond Songs! October 5th has been Global James Bond Day since 2012. In that time, it has been customary for the production team behind the 007 films to release the theme song for the next Bond flick, starting with Adele’s Skyfall. Being as the latest Bond film has not started filming yet and as such there will be no new theme song unveiled this year, I thought it might be a good bit of fun to rank the Bond songs in…

Westworld On Film & HBO’s New Series: Why You Should Be Watching #Westworld

Westworld On Film & HBO’s New Series: Why You Should Be Watching #Westworld Yesterday marked the debut of HBO’s re-imagined Westworld television series, and to celebrate the launch I sat through the classic film Westworld and then watched the series premiere on HBO Now directly thereafter. Hindsight being 20/20, I feel that this was probably the best way I could have experienced the premiere. There is a foundation that is superbly laid down by the feature film, which gives a clear vision of what the company Delos Destinations is, how…

The Monkees – Good Times: The Official Nerfed Llamas Review @theMonkees

The Monkees – Good Times: The Official Nerfed Llamas Review – Still Monkee-ing Around After 50 Years If you had told me on January 1st 2016 that not only would the Monkees release a brand new album (their first new album in 20 years) but that it would be a serious contender for my album of the year, I would have told you that you were crazy. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Monkees. Their brand of jangle-bubblegum-pop from the sixties is a tremendous list of amazing songs. Daydream…

Dollman Vs Demonic Toys: The Official Nerfed Llamas Review @fullmoonhorror

Dollman Vs Demonic Toys: The Official Nerfed Llamas Review – The Incredible Shrinking Movie! I have been building up to this review from the first week of my month long celebration of Full Moon Features. I started with a review of Bad Channels, a delightful sci-fi comedy about an Alien, a radio station, and miniaturized babes! Shortly thereafter I reviewed Dollman, about a cop from another planet that travels through a wormhole to our world to catch a nefarious villain, however the cop has a problem: on earth, he’s only…
