Upcoming junk and stuff


Happy Thanksgiving! For about the last six years the evening before Thanksgiving at my house we eat a dinner of the above items. Peanuts fans will recognize it as the foods Snoopy served on the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and we eat this while we watch that special. I hope to have a Critters 2 review out some time today as I did watch it yesterday and then Hellboy 2 on Friday. Robin’s Holy exclamations will happen Sunday and hopefully Dr. Smith will finally return next week. One of the reasons I started this blog was to help urge myself to watch more of the films I have never seen that are laying around my house. I have not done as much of that recently so next week I’ll aim to get at least two reviews of films I’ve never seen up on the blog. Last year I started a segment called Saturday morning flashback and I reviewed a few episodes of the Star Trek cartoon. I hope to bring that segment back soon and it may be reviews of specific episodes of old Saturday morning shows or it may be my memories or general overviews of some of those cartoons or shows. Whatever the case since Saturday morning cartoons are now a thing of the past I hope to get that segment going soon and hopefully be consistent enough to keep it going. I hope to include sci-fi, super hero, fantasy and action cartoons and live action shows from the 60’s through the 80’s in this feature.

Take care!

Things to be thankful for


I am of course thankful for my family, my health, friends, my cats and a good school system for my kids. I decided to toss out some genre related things that I am currently thankful for. So here they are.

ME-TV- I live out in nowhere and can’t afford cable so I am glad for ME-TV because they show some great old shows like Gilligan’s Island, F-troop, Bob Newhart and more. I am particularly thankful for their sci-fi Saturday line-up of Batman, Lost in Space, Star Trek and Svengoolie showing old horror films.

The Wal-Mart bargain bin-Okay, I buy too many cheap films but I have found some great collections of bad and decent films at Wal-Mart’s $5 bargain bin. Plenty of films to keep this blog going with material for years to come.

Thrift stores-I am cheap and we have to be. Used is okay by me. We live 20 minutes from five different thrift stores. I have found some great clothing finds for my kids this year including shirts with characters like Wolverine, Mario, Scooby Doo, Spider-man and Harry Potter. As well as some shirts for myself including ones of Ghostbusters, Speed Racer, Harry Potter and more.

My job for allowing me to do programs for kids that allow me to share my interests. I programs at the library that I think kids will come to but some tie to into things I really like. In the past year I have done programs on rockets, Star Wars, Super Heroes, Secret Agent training and other topics including several duct tape craft programs.

Sci-fi, horror and fantasy bloggers and the people who read and comment on these blogs. I try to read as many blogs as I can and comment as well. I appreciate all the blogs I follow. I also appreciate anyone who reads and comments on my blog.

There you go.
