You may well wonder how we connect those two topics mentioned in the headline above. I can barely remember, myself. But we got Greg Jones Jr. on as our guest, and things got pretty free-form, with extended digressions on the movie Leprechaun 4, John Oliver, Dragon Ball, Christian Slater's dad apparently sending hate mail to the LA Weekly, and more.

See Grumpy Cat Get Measured for Madame Tussaud's Waxwork

Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 2:59 pm

This is proof positive that Grumpy Cat is actually the most patient feline in the world. I cannot think of any other cat I've ever known that would stand for being measured and prodded like this without somebody losing an eye. All so endless throngs of tourists can pose with the double, for reasons Tarder Sauce herself will never understand.

There better have been some fresh tuna at the end of it all.

As if you needed any proof that there's very little the man can't do (aside from "Become the #1 box office star in the world that we all know he should be"), The Chin took some time out from Wizard World Chicago to basically take over local TV news. For real.

Evil dead air doesn't stand a chance.

WWE

Given all I've been saying about stories, characters and making sense, let's look at how Summerslam yesterday fared. Overall, I'd say it was a better than average pay-per-view show, but I think we all agree that "average" is on the low end nowadays.

So, it's cool and all that we're getting a Star Wars land in the Disney parks, but if they're just starting that now, it won't be ready for maybe two years. So what happens in the meantime? Well...

Got questions? Martha Boyd has all sorts of answers. A desert-dweller, self-proclaimed crazy cat lady, former LAPD officer and widow to a Green Beret, she's seen and heard things crazier than you've imagined. And is ready for whatever odd questions you have, so bring them on!

Hi All. We had another lovely rain storm in the desert last week. Started as a good soaking rain and then ended with a downpour. The desert is turning green, which is very pretty. My trees are all very happy campers and some of them are flowering.

Some of my clients seem to be getting dumber and dumber.

Along with ComingSoon's Silas Lesnick and Legion of Leia's Jenna Busch, I discussed the early Fantastic Four reviews, that Deadpool trailer, and what I'd want to see in Prometheus 2.

It's only about ten minutes, so it's a way shorter time commitment than a podcast.

Happy August all. Well had a great time with LYT and Julia last week. Also had a great batch of thunder storms. LYT had to try and work with power going in and out and me shutting down the computers just in case lightening hit close. My friend's house just 2 blocks away took a direct lightning hit and had all of the electric in her kitchen blow out. She is still trying to get it fixed. We lost power at the Sheriff's station and had flooding on the state hwy.

The next movie at Copper Mountain is going to be Highway Dragnet. This bit of fun was filmed between Apple Valley and Las Vegas; should be a fun evening out.
Starting to get ready for the Addams Family audition on Aug 10. Julia cut my CD while she was here so I am ready to roll. Been watching the show on You Tube and it looks like it will be a fun show to do. If I get a part I will let you all know as soon as I know.

In Which I Sorta-Review the Mission: Impossible - Room Escape Experience

Tuesday, August 4, 2015 at 9:00 am

miroomescape.jpg

How exactly do you review something when you've been asked not to spoil almost every individual thing about it, yet your invite to see it was contingent upon you writing about your experience in some way? Oh, wait, I get it - it's an impossible mission, so to speak. Yet as I'm a writer who said yes to checking out this thing, this was my mission and I did choose to accept it. So just like Jon Stewart interviewing Tom Cruise without mentioning the crazy, abusive cult he represents, I'll try to sum up the room escape without spoiling what the puzzles are.
