After falling down a YouTube hole over the weekend, Travis realizes that SNL is actually pretty funny this season, and that’s mainly due to the fine female performers on the show.
Comic-Con HQ held their Winter Series Showcase last week, which included previews of three shows and the requisite Q&A with the stars, with a reception following. They have two scripted series set in and around comic conventions, ‘Kings of Con’ and ‘Con Man’, along with ‘Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest’, which we previously reviewed. The evening at the Paley Media Center in Beverly Hills included the obligatory “red carpet” stream of interviews, screenings and discussion, and a reception afterward.
Travis tells a quick story about writing to Alan Thicke for a school assignment back in elementary school. Also, animals are just like people too.
Will Eisner’s THE SPIRIT is one of the most cinematic comics of all time. So why do they have so much trouble making it into a movie?
Thanksgiving is coming up this Thursday, and like most of you, I’m thinking about what I’m thankful for this year. And, in a world that’s getting scarier and more infuriating by the day, one of the things I’m most thankful for is all the fun stuff that offers a bit of escape. Which is why this week I’m talking about the Monkees, That Thing You Do!, Adam Schlesinger, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Travis here talking about Leonard Cohen and digging around his stuff, as well as some tidbits around the comics world.
If “time travel” was a key word to describe a new show, book, or movie, my imaginative ears will perk up with giddiness. Time travel is one of of my favorite genres of exploration.
