My friend, talented comedian Jaye McBride, has taken to drawing caricatures during this pandemic.  And right now Jaye’s current run in a series of artworks describing the typical “Karen.” You know the type, right? pic.twitter.com/n6g0PuLYnM — Jaye McBride (@jayemcbride) May 24, 2020   pic.twitter.com/nOJL9tB5nB — Jaye McBride (@jayemcbride) May 23, 2020   pic.twitter.com/4XTDhHW7aj — Jaye…

The “Three Word Movie” Game

I had fun yesterday on Facebook with a bit of a friend-participation game.  It’s a challenge, a fun challenge at that. Take any movie, and try to challenge people to identify it. But you’re only allowed to use three words to describe the movie. And, as a tougher challenge, you’re not allowed to use any…

A 35-year-trip back in time?

So I watched the new Snowpiercer TV series yesterday… woah…

I never realized I needed to watch a post-apocalyptic science fiction dystopian drama until … well … now. Snowpiercer is based on the Bong Joon-Ho sci-fi movie from a few years ago, which in turn was inspired by a French graphic novel.  And from the show’s opening moments (which explains why everybody’s on a freezing…

So now it will be a rail trail in the Adirondacks, rather than a rail road…

Last October, I mentioned news of a possible resurrection of railroad service that was the old Saratoga and North Creek Railroad.  There was a proposal by a California-based railroad company, United Rail, to take over the former SNCRR’s holdings and operate boutique train tours.  That never came to fruition. So now the next option seems…
