Thought I’d share a few thing I’m using to pass the recent days.
Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man (1943) – The greatest cinematic crossover event in history. Don’t @ me.
Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954)
Revenge of The Creature (1956) – yikes…
Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
The Wolf Man (1941) – You know I’m going through it when I dig this one out.
House of Frankenstein (1944) – Avengers: Age of Ulton, but for Universal Horror flicks.
Spider-Man 2 (2004) – Remember when Dashboard Confessional played over the closing credits for superhero movies, back when emo music slapped? Those were the days, folks…
Spider-Man 3 (2007) – I spent most of this most recent rewatch face down on my living room carpet screaming. COVID-19 was not a factor.
Halt and Catch Fire (Netflix) – What starts an a Mad Men rip-off set in the world of personal computing quickly spins into something all too magnificent.
House of Cards (Netflix) – While this show flew off the rails after showrunner Beau Willimon made an exit, in a time where we’re all powerless in our present circumstance, there’s something cathartic in watching Frank Underwood bulldoze anyone and anything that gets in his path.
Barry (HBO) – As an artist living in Los Angeles, it’s so real it hurts.
Billions (Showtime) – I’ve been a fan of showrunner Brian Koppelman’s podcast for years now, but I’m just now getting around to this show. Phenomenal acting, stupendous writing, even if it has the visual look of a CBS legal procedural.
The Moment with Brian Koppelman – As mentioned above, I’ve been a fan of this podcast for a long time. Koppelman is someone I always look to for creative insight. His recent conversation with Seth Godin is especially noteworthy, as they offer some wisdom for the times in which we live.
Lead Singer Syndrome – Hosted by Shane Told of Silverstein, this show features interviews with a variety of (you guessed it) lead singers from various punk, emo, hardcore, and metal bands. As someone who grew up in this scene, I cant’ recommend this show enough. It’s a fantastic peek behind the curtain with the members of Bayside, The Used, Yellowcard, Motion City Soundtrack, and pretty much every other scene band you can imagine.
A Beautiful Place to Drown – Silverstein

Opening for Steinbeck – John Cragie
