In 1993 DC Comics opened an offshoot branch called Vertigo.  It was used to publish the more graphic stories that couldn't be published under the Comics Code Authority.  It allowed DC Comics to offer readers more graphic violence, nudity, drug use, and profanity.  One of these stories revolved around mob wives and was called The Kitc...

FACT: Of all the animal species in the world, the one we humans are closest to and have formed the most lasting relationship with is the dog. It's a relationship that started over 100,000 years ago, just about as long as we've trod this earth, and may actually be responsible for our survival as a species. FACT: It's known that when humans pet ...

In 2001 we were introduced to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel, xXx), Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker, Running Scared) and a host of other colorful characters in Universal Pictures' The Fast and The Furious.  The movie centered around the idea of family and what that means surrounded by a backdrop of fast cars.  Since then there have been seven ot...

Family – to each of us the word means something different.  It could be your immediate family; siblings and parents; or it could be your extended family; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  For some, it includes people you are not blood-related to – friends.  However you define the word, it is still a group of people o...

It was 25 years ago that Disney brought us their animated version of the classic Shakespearean play, Hamlet. The Lion King offered wonderful animation, an original soundtrack created by Tim Rice and Elton John and a somewhat humorous look at the animal kingdom.  For ninety minutes, it entertained audiences and eventually grossed almost a billi...

Imagine all the people… had no idea who The Beatles – John, Paul, George, and Ringo- were. What if they never existed? Imagine if you were the only person on Earth who remembered them and their incredible catalog of music.   What if you could publish Hey, Jude, Yesterday, Penny Lane, etc. under your own name?  You would certa...

There are numerous late night talks shows out there and each one vies for viewers in the "ratings" wars.  We see an engaging and enthusiastic host talking to the audience, home viewers and guests all in an effort to try to win our loyalty.  However, we usually don't know what goes on behind the scenes and how hard a team of writ...

So many young people have dreams and aspirations of becoming stars.  Some of them hope to be actors, some rappers and some country music singers.  Rose-Lynn (Jessie Buckley; Beast) is one of the latter.  She is an anomaly living in her small town in Scotland dreaming of moving to Nashville to make it big.  Her chances are probab...

"You've got a friend in me"… since 1995 those words have been synonymous with the Disney animated movie Toy Story and Woody (Tom Hanks; Cast Away) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen; Home Improvement).  Over the next fifteen years, we were treated to two more films in the franchise that followed the adventures of Andy's toys as the...
