In light of yesterdays testimony by my fellow Yonkers native James Comey, I feel compelled to say goodbye to Donald Trump. Sure, he’s still the president and very well may be for the next four years (doubtful) but I feel compelled to sing him a swan song – figuratively anyway. Oh, and I’ll add this, […]

Disney wasn’t quite sure how many Star Wars films to add to the slate until Rogue One debuted. Admittedly, Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm said the company didn’t want to go beyond the two sequels to last year’s mega-hit The Force Awakens and the “Young” Han Solo film.

I interviewed Steven Wright on the phone yesterday. His beard was perfectly groomed. And that’s my attempt at the irreverent, irrelevant, non-sensical humor that has personified the accomplished Grammy-nominated, Oscar-winning comedian, actor and writer for over 25 years. Best known for his monotone delivery and deadpan punchlines – not to mention – appearances in such […]

With apologies to VH1, the best thing to happen to the 1980s hasn’t been an I Love… produced special or a Bret Michaels or Scott Baio trainwreck series. It’s unabashedly Fox’s 24, which has breathed new life into stars of the Teddy Ruxpin decade for years now. It all started at the top when the […]
