Was David Bowie An Alien?

May 31st, 2018

Ever wonder what music made by an extraterrestrial might sound like? Apparently, kind of like this: “Let’s dance put on your red shoes and dance the blues…”   Which, if you play it backwards, sounds like this:   “Dance let’s shoes red your on put blues the dance and laser beam cattle rectums. . . ’’   Amazing how that works, isn’t it?

Well, no, it’s... Read More

‘Solo’ Doesn’t Drive Like A Ford, But It’s A Fun Ride

May 26th, 2018

It’s always hard to replace a legend, even more so to replace an icon, and that’s the weakness of “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” a good and entertaining ride of a “Star Wars” flick, but one that still pales a bit for lack of a substantial spark from its titular star. Alden Ehrenreich has the difficult role of stepping in for Harrison Ford, whose rough charisma was one of the highlights of the original “Star Wars” trilogy and its subsequent sequels.
