George A. Romero (1940-2017)

George A. Romero: A Maestro of Zombie Terror Who Created the Ultimate Horror-Movie Metaphor by Owen Gleiberman | Variety The first time I ever saw “Night of the Living Dead,” the low-budget masterpiece of flesh-eating midnight terror directed by George A. Romero, who died on Sunday, it was in 1974. I was at home on a lonely high-school Saturday night watching TV, and at 11:30 p.m. an oddball black-and-white movie that opened in a cemetery just kind of…appeared. I knew absolutely nothing about it. At that point, low-budget horror films — even those that became notorious and sold a lot of tickets on the drive-in and grindhouse circuit, as...

Retro Thing

I found this site when i followed a link about Ikea hacking and ended up on a post about Allen Chiang and his quest to restore as many pre-1970 vintage radios as he can. I thought it might make an interesting post for my brother-in-laws smarthamradio.com site. There was another interesting...

Move Your Money

I was asked recently “If you can’t or shouldn’t leave your money in a bank, where should you put it?”. I’m not against the concept of banks, just the predatory ones. I have had my money in some bad banks and some great banks. When a very bad bank took over my...

Edward Bernays on PR

When I came back to the United States, I decided that if you could use propaganda for war, you could certainly use it for peace. And “propaganda” got to be a bad word because of the Germans using it, so what I did was try and find some other words so we found the words...

The Trump campaign was a frightening thing. He rallied the worst elements of America in terms of racism, prejudice, supremacy, and arrogance. But at the same time, it was a tremendous gift: We want to somehow pretend that this America is not there, but now we can see. Excerpt from Chicago...

All The Dumb Mistakes Characters On The Walking De...

By Wednesday Lee Friday | ScreenRant The Walking Dead. Even if you don’t watch it, you can’t get away from it. Everybody you know can’t shut up about it. What happened to Glenn? Who did Negan kill? Could Daryl be gay? But seriously, you watch The Walking Dead. You know you do. If you’ve been watching since the beginning, you know that most of the cast should have been (un)dead long ago. Sure, it’s the zombie apocalypse, and accidents will happen. But we’ve got to think that some of the more egregious mistakes would be trained out of the cast by now. As of Season Six though, we’re still seeing some of the same dumbness we did back when...
