Temporary title

In case you're wondering.... I started writing this a couple of weeks ago under the title: "Temporary title". I got used to it, and don't feel like coming up with something else.  :roll:    Every year around this time, for the past... well, it's been awhile, and I'm too lazy to look through my old blog posts... we'll just say several years, I've posted a recap of the Character Animation shows I edit together as part of my job at CalArts.   Some [url="https://www.animationcareerreview.com/art
 

And yet still another small diversion

And my home video arcade grows! [url="http://atariage.com/forums/blog/118/entry-15064-another-small-diversion/"]Last time[/url], I added three new Tiny Arcade games: Galaga, Dig Dug and Frogger.   This time, it's Q*bert and Tetris:   [img]http://cheeptech.com/misc/blog_pics/new-tiny-arcade-cabs.jpg[/img]   In my first review of these, I mentioned Q*bert as a good candidate for becoming one of these Tiny Arcade games. I didn't think they'd make it though, because it requires the joystick to
 

Avengers: Endgame - Spoiler-free review

If you go to the theater late enough at night... you can still get tickets to Avengers: Endgame.   Which I did - going to a 10:45 PM showing last night. Mainly because I wanted to [url="http://atariage.com/forums/blog/118/entry-12603-star-wars-the-force-awakens-spoiler-free-movie-review/"]avoid spoilers[/url], and the way articles and videos were popping up all over the internet about the movie, I figured time was running out. (I even ran across what turned out to be an incorrect spoiler watch

On Corse for the win

Captain Marvel - Spoiler-free review

Marvel has a knack for making superhero movies. And by knack, I mean they've pretty-much got it figured out. Of course, when you think about it, they probably should by now. But nothing is a given.   I should note here I'm talking about [url="https://www.boxofficemojo.com/franchises/chart/?id=avengers.htm"]the Marvel Cinematic Universe[/url] (MCU) movies, [i]not[/i] Marvel movies made by Sony or 20th Century Fox. Those have been, at best, inconsistent.   If you think about how many truly [i]

Sloggin' through Sweden, Mixing it up in Mexico

Usually, I post one WRC blog entry for the season, then just add comments for each subsequent rally.   But since I had already named [url="http://atariage.com/forums/blog/118/entry-15462-monte-carlos-flying-circus/"]this year's entry[/url] after the first rally in Monte Carlo, I thought I'd post new entries for each of the other rallies too (or every other rally... or every third rally...).   Rally Sweden was a bit of a disappointment in that the weather was unusually warm, and so what's sup

Blog Title: Do I Have To Do This All Over Again?

Peter Tork passed away last week at the all-too-young age of 77.   I didn't used to think 77 was young. But the older I get, and the more people I know who live and live [i]well[/i] in their 80's and even 90's, 77 seems too young.   Peter played the bass player on the TV show The Monkees ([url="http://www.broadcastingcable.com/post-type-the-wire/the-monkees-joins-metv-network-sunday-lineup"]returning soon to MeTV[/url]).
