Well make that May 30th, but in their ongoing business of reexamining and repackaging their catalog, The Beatles have remastered and rereleased their landmark Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album...

While much of the criticism of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return focuses on its non-sequiturs, time shifts, and general incomprehensibility, it’s probably wise to remember that it was always, sort of, this way...

The Internet might very well be eating its own tail at this point, with satire going viral within hours of breaking political news...

Another day, another viral video of the President – this time from the NATO summit in Brussels yesterday (05/26/17). Seems the Prime Minister of Montenegro was an obstacle to the next photo-op...

Every presidential photo op is another meme possibility these days, and today’s (5/24/17) audience at the Vatican with the Holy Father was no different... Apply everyone’s favorite closing theme, and presto...

Here’s Last Week Tonight’s recent (and perhaps ultimate) super cut of cable news panels. In case you didn’t already agree, this might help illustrate how cable news food fights might make for good ratings but not for public good...

U2 has set out on the road this month in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their milestone album “The Joshua Tree”. Back in the stone age, (mid-’80s) most of us could be found in front of MTV, watching hours of music videos... U2 could be frequently found there, and this cut, a live performance of “Where the Streets Have No Name” on an LA rooftop tore a page out of The Beatles “Let it Be” playbook...

Far from being a weak stepsister to the Breaking Bad original, Better Call Saul has created its own, must-see world backstory of scam artist Jimmy McGill and his Walter White-like descent to become the wily criminal jailhouse lawyer Saul Goodman... so why not a third chapter?...

Actor Michael Parks passed away yesterday, (5/10/17) in Los Angeles. Parks was known more recently for edgy roles in Kill Bill and Grindhouse. But us youngsters remember him fondly for his breakout TV role in Then Came Bronson (1969-70), where he played a lonesome vagabond, an ex-newspaperman who gave it all up and took to the highway on a motorcycle...

In the wake of the President firing FBI director James Comey today (5/9/17) it’s natural to look back to the last time a Commander-in-Chief shook Washington and got rid of an official who may not be too favorable to his current legal plight. Richard Nixon fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox on Saturday, October 20, 1973, after he refused to let Nixon out of providing secret audio tapes made of White House meetings...
