The Uncanny (1977) – Ferocious Felines & Slapstick Script

I have been in a writing funk of sorts. I’ve been writing, but it’s not coherent (even for me) and it’s fragmentary. Bits and pieces of darkness splattered across the digital page throughout the days. Seemingly with no direction and … Continue reading

Squirm (1976), the story of the worms march to the sea

Last week there was another full moon. A Super Equinox Worm Moon! They just keep coming. I’m content with this arrangement. They are naming the full moons regularly now. These names existed but have largely been ignored until fairly recently. … Continue reading

Tree slaughter, Tree revenge, and the Navy

It seems like every other day, one of my favorite trees gets hacked down.  I’m told by the gub’ment that it’s because of the dreaded Emerald Ash Borer beetle, but I think it’s probably the anti-squirrel lobbyists at work. Pour … Continue reading

Return of the Moonwalker

It’s Friday the 13th and we have ourselves a supermoon, whether you see it or not.  It’s also hot as Hades and I have a migraine. In my brain addled state, I thought it was a good idea to watch … Continue reading

Without Name deserves a better name, something like Gun Anam

It’s good ‘ol St. Paddy’s Day, and Syfy is running a Leprechaun marathon.  Of course, I’ve been catching some of that as I sit bundled up waiting for the HVAC guy to come fix my heater. Believe me, 57F is way … Continue reading

Pi(e), man

It’s March 14.  Pi day. This is great because I like maths and I like pie.  I like all kinds of pie. It’s hard to come up with pie I don’t like.  Apple is classic for a reason. I can … Continue reading

Not so Stranger Things

I binge-watched season two of Stranger Things the day it came out. NO RAGRETS! The beauty of Stranger Things isn’t in the nitty-gritty of the story.  The greatness is the characters and the mood.  It is well-acted and it looks … Continue reading

H. is for headspace. It’s also a movie.

Asteroid 3122 Florence (aka Asteroid 1981ET3) whooshed past Earth. 3122 Flo is yuge – 2.7 miles in diameter. We got lucky.  This time.  However, that doesn’t stop us from obsessing about large space objects colliding with Earth and causing havoc, with … Continue reading

“Spring” has sprung, mud was flung, tentacle tongues

That vernal equinox thing happened.  Now it’s spring.  March tried to pretend this was a big shift by tossing down six inches of snow last week. I made the most of it. All that snow is gone now and spring … Continue reading
