KISS at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Being thankful for KISS’ performance at the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Remember when KISS performed during the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade? It was awesome. Not because it was a spectacularly good performance or anything. I mean, we’ve all seen them belt out way better versions of “Rock N’ Roll All Nite” than they’re gonna while lip syncing and being dragged along on a float at 11… Read More ›

Can Halloween day save a lost season?

Approximately 31 days ago, I opened a blank Google doc and prepped work on some Halloween content ideas. The season felt fresh and I was jazzed on pumping out some spooky stuff.

Ranking the segments in Trick ‘r Treat is hard as hell. It would be hard even if they were completely separated out… Read More ›

Night of the Living Dead Volume 1: Sins of the Father

‘Square Pegs’: Spend a little Halloween (XII) in Weemawee

Halloween episodic television output can be really great. You know the ones. Roseanne, The Office, Tales from the Darkside, Beverly Hills, 90210, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Freaks and Geeks. Hell, I even have a season three Halloween episode of Cheers playing in the background right now. So, what about the lesser-known ones?  We all have… Read More ›
