Strangeland (1998)


This movie remained an enigma for me for years. I saw it back in the hey-day, as it played alongside the golden days of Full Moon. In every respect it has Full Moon written all over it, but in the end, isn’t. The main problem was that once you caught a movie on TV, there…

Vermilion Pleasure Night (2002)


Vermilion Pleasure Night is a Japanese comedy variety show that primarily focuses on parodying popular Japanese shows and American sitcoms. You could probably get away with likening it to an episode of Tim and Eric, except for the fact that the episodes are longer, which can be a plus and a minus. Tim and Eric,…

Stumbling on a Spider Beetle


A colleague of mine who knows I’m into bug photography called me one day since he found some bugs in the office. He figured they were assassin bugs, and that’s not out of the ordinary since members of the True Bug family tend to overwinter inside. I made a point to bring my camera into…

The World of Yoshihiro Tatsumi


The problem I find with manga and, really, American comics as well is that it’s very easy for me to get burnt out. I can only read a reboot of Ghost Rider or Spiderman or Batman so many times before I start to feel like maybe I’ve heard this story before and manga isn’t much…

He is right up there with Art Clokey (Gumby), Henry Selick (Coraline) and Nick Park (Wallace & Gromit). And just like all the other greats, there is always this distinctly Vinton look to all the things…

Yeti Hunter


Yeti Hunter is an atmospheric game not for the light of heart. Much like the found footage genre of today’s horror movies, it relies on subtle concentration to achieve it’s most terrifying moments. You begin with no back-story or clue as to what is going on. Instead below you is a pool of what you…

Night of the Living Pelosi (2012)


Normally, I try to stay away from politics. I really do. You cut your audience in half, and with this site, that would literally bisect someone and kill them. However with all the seemingly useless attack ads out there that no one likes, there is one this season that plays out like a 70’s era…
