A Dog Named Beau

On The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Jimmy Stewart reads a poem about his dog named Beau. If you don’t need a tissue by the end of this, then you have no heart.

Cameron’s Discovery; Or, Socratic Blogging

On March 4th the Discovery channel will premiere James Cameron’s new documentary “The Lost Tomb of Jesus.” Purportedly, James Cameron and his director, Simcha Jacobovici, provide textual and DNA evidence that Jesus’ tomb not only exists, but that his bones are in it, which definitely throws a kink in the whole ascending to Heaven thing. […]

Superheros For All Viewers

I don’t know why television studios aren’t embracing file sharing on the internet. It seems to me that they’d benefit from allowing viewers to catch up on their shows, especially the serial television shows that are extremely self-referential. Case in point, I’d been hearing all about NBC’s “Heroes,” all over the internets; I knew it […]

Wildflowers and Shame

I have conflicted feelings about television commercials. For the most part they’re annoying pains in the ass. They assume that viewers are gullible retards, they make exaggerated claims, but most of all they’re horribly corny and derivative. BUT, when they’re well-done I don’t mind the interruption into my enjoyment of reruns of “Beavis and Butt-head.” […]

HD-DVD And Blu Ray—DOA

If you’ve been to Best Buy, Circuit City, or any other electronics store in the last six months, you’ve no doubt noticed that in addition to the normal DVDs, retailers are now selling Blu Ray DVDs and HD-DVDs. Since I’m resident tech-nerd around here, I thought I’d give you the low-down on these two up-and-coming […]

Spaced

Several months ago, we purchased a DVD player/recorder that I immediately hacked to ignore macrovision during duplication, and to also remove regional restrictions. Now I can copy anything I want, and I can watch movies from the UK. One of the shows from the UK that I never hesitate to recommend to people is “Spaced.” […]

Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and the U.S. Version Of “The Office”

I just read that Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the co-creator’s of the UK show “The Office,” have written an episode of the U.S. version with the same name, and it will air on Thursday night. As much as I love the U.S. version of “The Office,” my heart truly belongs to the U.K. version, […]

This Generation’s Blog

I was lying on the couch tonight watching TV, as I am wont to do, and an advertisement for the newly released on DVD “Accepted” came on. It proclaimed the movie to be “this generation’s ”˜Animal House’.” First off, there’s only been one “Animal House” and that’s all there ever will be. “Sorority Boys” is […]

Top Referrer for Colbert

I just noticed that the website for Stephen Colbert’s book Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Jansen Adventure lists me as a top referrer. That means that Hyperliterature forwards enough readers to the Tek Jansen page that they felt obliged to credit me. How cool is that? Colbert occasionally references this book on the […]
