Every once in a while, you’ll hear the details of an event that sounds so, so awesome, that it takes you a moment to properly process what you just heard. Such was the case when my friend Monica invited me to join her for what was being billed as “The Big Picture: Hitchcock!” – A tribute […]

Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

H1

Who doesn’t love the Ramones? It’s almost blasphemy to not have some sort of admiration or at least respect for the punk rock pioneers, and like the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While I have been a fan of The Ramones for most of my life, there was a period in my […]

  True crime stories have always held my attention, as they are examples of not only how evil human beings can be, but how said men are capable of such awful acts of violence. The true crime approach to storytelling, whether it be in books, biopics, or in the case of WHITEY: UNITED STATES OF […]
