Notes From Network Executives

I’m a big fan of pulling back the curtain. I like to see what goes on behind the scenes; what makes something successful. One of my favorite Twitter feeds is @TVNetworkNotes where they post actual comments from network executives. After reading the comments below, I think I should have left the curtain alone! Take a… Read more »

Star Trek: The Next Generation PADD

I never watched Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) while it was actually on the air. I purchased the 7-season DVD collection and watched all the episodes over the course of a few years and then watched the four movies. Sometimes I’ll see a prop in a movie that intrigues me, and I’ll try my… Read more »

Warner Brothers Tour

This weekend I didn’t have time to write my standard, ever so sophisticated, blog entry for the week. Yeah. I figured instead of spending the weekend reading up on stem cell transplant procedures, or working on my cure for cancer, I would instead take a much needed break by zipping down to Burbank and experiencing… Read more »

For those of you who have no idea who I’m talking about, American McGee is the name of a video game designer and programmer. He worked on many memorable games, but is probably best… Read more »

Luke Skywalker Lightsaber – Star Wars Episode IV and V

I was never a huge Star Wars fan. I had seen all six movies, but was more interested in the props and technology. I liked the look of the lightsaber, so I decided to build my own. I looked at the various lightsabers from the six movies, and decided to build Luke’s lightsaber from the… Read more »

D.B. Cooper = Don Draper

So how will Mad Men end its seven year run? There are hundreds of theories and ideas floating around the web right now, but the best one I’ve heard is that Don Draper is actually D.B. Cooper, the mysterious hijacker who, 45 years ago, jumped out of a Boeing 727 with $200,000 in cash, never… Read more »

The Chocolate Factory V2

Earlier this week I watched an interview with Gene Wilder. While he talked about many of my favorite movies such as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and Silverstreak, he also went off on Tim Burton’s remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I have to agree. The original was much better. But that got me thinking…. Read more »

First Star Trek, Now Star Wars?

I’m still not sure if JJ Abrams should be directing the new Star Wars movies. Sure he’s amazingly talented, and he’s created some of my favorite TV shows like Lost and Fringe, but giving him carte blanche for Star Wars? I’m not so sure. He certainly didn’t learn anything from the original Star Trek movies…. Read more »

Brokeback Muppet

The upcoming issue of The New Yorker has everyone up in arms. The cover shows Ernie and Bert snuggled up on a couch watching as the Supreme Court renders its decision concerning DOMA. It’s one of those covers that no one is happy with. People against gay marriage are complaining that we spend way too… Read more »
