Your Bee Gees Documentary Moment of Zen
Personally, I believe that in the late 1960s, the Bee Gees invented what the kids today call 'the feels'. No, I'm not posting this to be ironic - I think this documentary makes a similar claim. Enjoy!

From Page to Screen: GOING CLEAR
Admittedly, I've always had a slight scholarly interest in Scientology...not enough to consider being audited, though. I was first exposed to its ideas via a book at the local public library....and even as a child, I was confused as to what it was. So when ...

Introducing the War Doctor: DOCTOR WHO - ENGINES OF WAR
You know, when The Day of the Doctor was first transmitted, I have to admit that I loved the character of the War Doctor (as played by John Hurt). He was not only Moffatt's semi-ironic commentary on Doctor Who , but also provided a glimpse into the Doctor's...

Eight Years Ago This Month....
Sunset over 64th & Pulaski ...things leading up to the move were a blur: so much so that I don't recall what happened in what order. With my impending move from St. Louis back to Chicago, I had left an extremely dysfunctional work environment. (One thing I ...

A Special Easter Gift from Blog THIS, Pal!
Today is Easter - a time you celebrate either a high religious holiday....or get a bunch of candy. Or both. Rather than the usual comic cover, or even a wacky message...enjoy the 13th Floor Elevators' second album, Easter Everywhere.

I would Vote for Jesus Chuy Garcia for Chicago Mayor because the day after the Election he is going to put a commitee to work to solve all of Chicago problems and the day after that all of Chicago problems will be fixed
