  • What I'm Watching: BoJack Horseman

    What I'm Watching: BoJack Horseman

    If you think "a dumb cartoon about a horse?", no. This is maybe the best dramedy about depression, success, and failure ever made, live-action or animated (the other contender is Neon Genesis Evangelion, which is about the crushing weight of parental expectations told with giant mecha and alien angels at the end of the world). … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: BoJack Horseman"Read More »

    Nintendon't Fake NES Controllers

    One of the few things I liked in the latest Nintendo Direct was "NES controller for Switch! Though there are good 3rd-party ones, but sweet."

There's the Dick Nintendo I know and barely tolerate because they hate their … Continue reading "Nintendon't Fake NES Controllers"Read More »

    What I'm Watching: Cells At Work

    Most bizarre thing ever: Cells at Work. Your body as a city with every cell as a person. Paramilitary white blood cells and hapless red blood cells delivering oxygen, protecting their world (you) from horrible tentacled monsters (germs). I've been watching some dull horror movies (The Strangers, among others) which I haven't blogged, and this … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Cells At Work"Read More »

    What I'm Watching: Unforgiven

    Up on Netflix, my 2nd favorite modern (well, you know, post-Spaghetti) western; Tombstone is 1st, obvs, guess Lonesome Dove is 3rd largely for the late, greatly missed Bob Urich. So. This is more a character/actor study than a film with a plot as such. Clint as Bill Munny does not really pass as the broke-down … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Unforgiven"Read More »
