The Philosopher’s Song: G’Day Bruce: The Big Ideas (Reboot)

By | April 9th, 2018|0 Comments

So about a year ago - or was it two? (hard to say really, time is so difficult to grasp and there is no way pinning down a definitive date on anything...wait, I looked at the last post for this category...yeah, two years ago. Huh, time is easier to grasp that I thought). Anyway, two years ago I began a [...]

Do you think King Kong smiles? King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962): Kong Hits III

By | April 7th, 2018|0 Comments

This is one of the more…let’s go with interesting…entries in this project. King Kong vs. Godzilla is a crossover, a comedy, and a curiosity. And it is something to behold that’s for sure. It began life as a sequel to the original film called King Kong Meets Frankenstein. The proposed treatment was by Willis O'Brien (the original animator of [...]

A Little Kong: Son of Kong (1933): Kong Hits II

By | March 10th, 2018|0 Comments

If you thought that a hastily thrown together sequel rushed into production and released as soon as possible as a cynical gash-grab to capitalize on its far superior predecessor was a modern phenomenon you are sorely mistaken! That’s been happening since pretty much the advent of filmmaking in general. Case in point: Son of Kong. Now to be fair [...]

Close to the Edge: Yes: Difficult Beauty I

By | March 9th, 2018|0 Comments

I begin this journey into Progressive Rock with the album that I feel is the quintessential example of the genre. Yes’ fifth release typifies the aspects of what makes great Prog Rock.  It executes the characteristics of the form perfectly and combines the musical experimentation and instrumentation into what I consider one of the closest any group has gotten [...]

A 1999 Interview with Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson

By | February 21st, 2018|0 Comments

Way back before the turn of the century (which is an extremely fun phrase to write) myself and aspiring author, Justin Rickard, decided to start an independent, self-published magazine. It was called The Pythagorean. It was melding of sorts of philosophy, spirituality and science. Our goal was to show how these things were not at odds with one another but [...]

A Parliament of Owls (Or How Comic Books Make You Smarter)

By | February 14th, 2018|0 Comments

Not very long ago I was out with some friends having dinner at a cozy little café in the mountains. It was a beautiful Colorado evening and we sat out on the deck as the sun was setting among the aspens and pines as humming birds and finches and jays nestled in the branches and ate from feeders placed in [...]

Difficult Beauty: An Exploration of Progressive Rock: Introduction

By | February 13th, 2018|0 Comments

Progressive Rock is a genre of music that typically to consists of long, complicated pieces of music that attempts to incorporate ideas and styles of jazz improvisation and classical composition. It tends to focus on the virtuosity of its musicians, experimentation in the structure of the music and instruments, and incorporation of references and illusions to fantasy, science fiction and [...]

King of his World: King Kong (1933): Kong Hits I

By | February 12th, 2018|0 Comments

At the beginning of the year I did the obligatory blogger thing of making a “best of” list. In it I stated my guilty pleasure of the year was Kong: Skull Island. This is a clichéd giant monster movie filled with every trope of the genre you could possibly think of and yet I still enjoyed the ever-loving hell [...]

Ursula K. Le Guin & Learning How to Read

By | February 10th, 2018|0 Comments

I first read The Left Hand of Darkness in Middle School. I guess I was twelve or maybe thirteen. I didn’t understand it. Let me be clear, I enjoyed the novel – quite a bit actually – and I understood very well that there was something more to the story, something I was missing, I just didn’t have the maturity [...]
