Latest Greatest Movie Reviews, Fall 2012ish

Waaaaaaaaaaay back last winter I did a set of reviews of films I had not actually seen, and in fact STILL have not seen, because I don’t have time to see movies in theaters, and when left to my own devices am much more likely to rewatch “Taken,” which is undoubtedly showing on FX as […]

Best movie reviews EVER.

In case you hadn’t heard, I have just a crapload of children, I swear there’s like 17 of ’em running around the house. As a result, I haven’t seen a movie in a theatre since, if I remember correctly, “Quantum of Solace.” (Which was not as good as Casino Royale, but I’m still pretty excited […]


Rehearsal for a concert I’m singing in on Saturday got a nice write-up in a local arts blog. As usual, my advertising is late and largely useless, but if you’ve no plans for Saturday night, I invite you to come to First and Central Presbyterian to hear the Mastersingers of Wilmington.

Take a look, if you have a mo’, at this gallery of pictures of New Gibellina, Sicily. The original Gibellina was destroyed by an earthquake in 1968, and then the new town was built a few miles away. Wikipedia: The new city was designed by many of the most prominent artists and architects in Italy, […]

End of the world as they knew it

Hey! You! Stop what you’re doing, and start reading Freak Angels! I’ve linked you to the beginning, because otherwise you’ll be even more confused than you would normally be.

Th’ow ’em out

Someone with a little too much time on his hands has made a lego sculpture of the Defenstration of Prague. I don’t know what it says about the world that this exists.

Take a hike

I need to start taking a better camera when I go on my little lunchtime nature hikes. Hey, people who have walked the Woodlawn Estates trails near Beaver Valley Road, is there a story behind this old stone house?
