Hope Springs Eternal

Sometimes, commercials backfire.  Karl and I were watching television this week when one came on for Whataburger.  Now, when Karl calls from the office and asks if he wants me to bring home burgers for dinner, the “whata” in burger is silent.  But this commercial was hawking the temporary return…

Hot Nerds & High Anxiety

For me, the nerdy hot thing started with Howard Bannister.  And, even if the term “nerdy hot” actually is an oxymoron, it didn’t much matter when Ryan O’Neal as Howard dropped his pajama bottoms in the bathroom doorway while Barbra Streisand was taking a bubble bath in What’s Up, Doc?…

Confessions From My Rabbit Hole

When the New York Times published that anonymous op-ed this week sensationally titled “I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” my movie addled brain went down its usual rabbit hole to those movies with similar screaming titles. Confessions of a Nazi Spy. I Married a Nazi.  That…

Monkey Business

Were you one of those children that slept with a quantity of stuffed toys?  I certainly was. There was the requisite teddy bear, a circus clown and Barney Rubble, dressed in that fur dress he and Fred Flintstone always wore.  And there was a monkey holding a plastic banana. The…
