Witchcraft…everyone has their own ideas of what that word means.  Officially it is described as "the practice of magic, especially black magic; the use of spells".  Some truly believe in the power of witchcraft while others think it is all make believe.  Some practice the artform and see it much like an organized rel...

In 1983 Eddie Murphy was in his third year as a regular on Saturday Night Live.  While on the show he created some memorable characters such as Adult Buckwheat, Sarcastic Gumby, and Mr. Robinson (a parody of Mr. Rogers). The year prior, he also made his feature film debut co-starring with Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides) in 48 Hours.  The... Read More

This December is the 30th Anniversary of The Godfather Part III's original release in theaters.  In celebration of the milestone, legendary director Francis Ford Coppola spent months working on a new edit of the film now titled, The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. The film is clearly the weakest of the trilogy but ...

In the early 1980's Eddie Murphy's career was on the rise.  With the success of Saturday Night Live and his budding movie career, it seemed he could practically do no wrong.  After starring in 48 Hours, Trading Places, and Beverly Hills Cop, it seemed the "golden boy" had the Midas touch.  Then came his next feature film, 1...

Kevin Patrick Smith (Clerks) was born and raised fifteen minutes from me in Monmouth County, New Jersey, and is a mere six months older than me (yet abundantly more financially successful).  When his first feature film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, won two awards and later screened at the Cannes International Film Festival, where it c...

The top athletes in almost any sport are revered all over the world.  Their talent, their competitive spirit, their hard work, their strength and agility, and their mindset make them the best and they are celebrated for it.  They are paid handsomely, and they become celebrities.  Their goals are to play as long as possible and win of...

In the mid-1980s Comedians Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon started doing a stand-up routine in which they played two, bodacious dudes called Bill & Ted. The stand-up was such a hit that they went on to create a film in 1989 entitled Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, which both kids, teenagers, and teachers alike got behind.The movie immediate...

While Shirley Jackson (The Lottery) may have lacked quantity in her writing, she certainly made up for it in quality.  Regarded as a prolific author, she created images that terrified her readers while conversely drawing them into her made-up worlds.  In 1959 Viking published Jackson's novel, The Haunting of Hill House, which is consi...

Back in the early 2000s, AMC (originally American Movie Classics) aired mostly…you guessed it, old movies. However, by the latter half of the decade, they were experimenting with some original programming.  In January of 2008, they furthered their ambition by airing a new show called Breaking Bad.  It immediately generated "bu...

 "The Secret".  What is it?  Some would say it's all a bunch of mumbo jumbo while others believe it is almost a religion of some sort.  It centers on the "law of attraction" or the idea of "positive thinking".  Basically, if you think of all the good things you want to have happen in your life,...
