Is it time to Podcast Again?

I’m down to zero web hits a day. I learned there was a WordPress setting I’d never noticed that hid my site from search engines, which is kind of the opposite of what I want. I’d like to be the top hit for such classic search terms as “Not Goonies, the other one” * “How […]

Jody Movie for You

Here’s a little something I created yesterday. I’ll post the other one in a day or two. You know, spreading out the love.

Sucky Movies and A New Website

My son picked out a movie at Movie stop. I knew I wasn’t going to like it because I’ve tried to watch it before, but really, there are two reasons this should be a good movie. 1: Mel Brooks can be funny. 2: Parodies amuse me. However, the movie in question is Spaceballs and it’s […]

It’s a Paul Blart Life

As I may have mentioned here before (it’s getting hard to differentiate between Facebook and Twitter updates and the blog itself, although anyone who reads the blog sees my Twitter updates over there on the right) Junior and I went to see the movie Paul Blart, Mall Cop because it was filmed at one of […]

I Coulda Been a Filmmaker

It’s sleep over night at Chez Dump. The regular cast of characters are present, including the gerbils and the dog. We’re watching an MST3K movie. Good Lord, if I ever stumbled upon this on my own (the chances of which are slim to freaking none, given how horrible the damned thing is) I would only […]

Thumbs Up to Netflix on Xbox 360

I know that my many, many regular readers (all 3 of you) have been wondering where I’ve been. Just a little family thing involving surgery, but the patient is home and should be driving everyone crazy within a day or so, max. Also, I did live through a round of layoffs, but what happens is […]

The Gods Try to Thwart My Efforts

Netflix streaming for Macs was released as a beta. I am doomed. I will never finish my Nano Novel now. Curse you, Netflix! The first movie I tested was “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” I believe that movie has the longest opening credit sequence in the history of movies. Five minutes of animated […]

Trophy Time

Had fun at the North Leominster Little League annual banquet last night. It would have been fun anyway, but Junior getting 2 trophies plus a sponsor-supplied City Championship sweatshirt (thanks, Piper Electric!) was really icing on the cake. No, wait, the icing on the cake was winning a $50 Il Forno gift card during the […]

Bring on the Video Feeds

I got my birthday present a week early (well, one of my birthday presents, I’m sure, right honey? Right?)…I picked up a Flip video camera to use for the DumpCast. It’s not the high quality one I want to fully replace the Sony that broke, but I didn’t want to have to wait until this […]

Wintery Mix

I only want a wintery mix if it involves peppermint candies and chocolate. Okay, that didn’t make a lot of sense, but I got tired of trying to think of something funny. Maybe I should not have said anything then? I’ll leave that up to you. I’m going to try to take a little movie […]
