    Last week, Jim Hill did a three part article on animated cartoons that made fun of Disney.And thorough as Mr. Hill tried to be with his “Making Fun of the Mouse” series, Jim still managed to miss a few great stories, which I’d like to share with you now. Let’s start where Jim...
  • Blog Post: Wednesdays With Wade: Remembering Disney's "True-Life Adventure" series

    Last week, even though it was National Wildlife Week , I got a little sidetracked. So I hope you won’t mind if I continue the spirit of that week with this week’s column. Especially since Roy E.

  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #24: "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street"

    Paranoia strikes deep. Into your heart it will creep. At least, that's what Buffalo Springfield said. And they're ALWAYS right. Seriously, they had a point.

There's fat guys in stormtrooper outfits, constant chatter about geekly books and movies and TV shows, and...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #5: The Star Wars Holiday Special

    I have many memories from the line-up for "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace." Sitting damp under a trash bag on Ohio Street during a torrential downpour and chatting with my friend who got to see the movie early (***). Missing Roger Ebert and his interview team by that much. Dragging a massive...
  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #2: Send Me An Angel

    We're living in a golden age of television. If you're a half-hour sitcom fan, you probably think I'm smoking some kind of reinforced plastic for making the above statement. But you hour-long drama folks, you know what I'm talking about. You hear me. Holla, as the kids say. (Some kids. Somewhere. I'm...
