With ringing still in my ears and eyes still clouded from the smoke wafting from the stage, I wanted to take a few moments to recap The Jesus and Mary Chain show that I attended Tuesday night at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. Kicking the night off with a short set of tracks pulled from their […]

As the weather gets colder, the leaves change color and school buses are back on the road we welcome the changing of the seasons. Another sure sign of fall is the return of new shows to the cable networks. Riding on the popularity of shows like The Walking Dead and FX’s American Horror Story, Fox […]

Three minutes into The Magician’s Apprentice and I was hooked for the season… in fact, I think I was on the floor after the pre-credits sequence. There’s really no way to discuss the episode without spoilers (sweetie) so here’s the warning: SPOILERS AHEAD. I didn’t get to see the episode on Saturday as I was […]

There’s a terrific new movie playing in theaters now from the director of “About a Boy”, which was one of my favorite films back […]

Whenever you look at lists of the best ‘rockumentaries’ you get pretty much the same list of classic rock films. These are held in such high regard that they will always top such lists, but new stories and filmmakers are always washing ashore and there have been some pretty amazing rock docs to come out […]

As the 2015 movie season draws towards a close, it has occurred to me that two of it’s most anticipated titles have a rather odd connection. And not necessarily the one you’d imagine. Those two movies? “Ant-Man” and “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens”. “Ant-Man” arrived with a lot of baggage this summer. I […]

Critical Role: The Best Intro To D&D Ever?

ModCon02

Full confession: I play Dungeons & Dragons. Times were, making that statement would probably have made a few people edge away from me on the bus but, frankly, times were I’d never have admitted as such in mixed company. D&D was vaguely shameful, even to geeks. In the mainstream, it was looked upon (usually) as […]
