I gotta admit, the more I learn about CBS's Star Trek Discovery, the more I'm looking forward to it. Yeah, in case you didn't know, Star Trek is coming back to the small screen after 12 years away. I'm still... Continue reading

The last two weeks of Macro Monday have been disappointing in terms of guesses. Are they too difficult? I'm hoping not. I'll do better this week. I swear! See? Told ya! Continue reading

I really don't think there's any better way to commemorate the life of Adam West than the way the City of Los Angeles chose to do. Thank you for decades of entertainment, Mr. West. You are sorely missed. I cant... Continue reading
