WandaVision versus Doom Patrol … who you got?

Honestly, it’s been tough for me to follow the various permutations of the Marvel Television Universe and the DC Television “Arrowverse” programs. I watched Supergirl for about a year and then gave up on it. I watched Daredevil and Jessica Jones for about one episode each, and took both of them off my subscription list.…

Here’s a refresher. I blogged about it. So now, on Jericho’s “Talk is Jericho” podcast, the veteran…

Every so often, rather than publish my thoughts and opinions on the world, I’ll let someone of equal intelligence and wit post for a day. So I’m going to let my son Kris say a few words here about the recent Capitol insurrection, those who condoned it, and the recent impeachment. All opinions in this…

The Force Project: Color in the AGFA Clipper

About ten years ago, I purchased an AGFA Clipper camera for about $15 at a Brimfield Antiques Show.  I’ve used this camera several times, mostly forcing it to take 35mm film and playing with its exposure rates – some of the pictures I’ve created with this camera include The Lenten Meal, The Zipless Chuck and…

K-Chuck Radio: Don’t blame me for these…

I’m not going to lie. Returning to college radio has been an emotional godsend for me. I enjoy going back in time, playing fantastic music, and recounting great stories about some of the best music that ever came out. You know, in the early 1980’s, with fun tracks and whatnot… But I will admit that…

Pittsburgh needs a new quarterback next season. Our current one sucks.

Let’s be clear on what happened last night. The Cleveland Browns won a playoff game for the first time in 28 years. They beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, my beloved Steelers, in Pittsburgh, with a 28-0 first quarter and a 35-10 half, en route to a 48-37 triumph. The Steelers, who went 11-0 to start the…

Buh-bye, Kellyanne Conway. Go the hell away.

Case in point. My blog has a four-year hate-hate relationship with Kellyanne Conway. Conway, who advised Donald Trump on his way to winning the 2016 Presidential election, who then violated the Hatch Act on numerous occasions (using her position as White House Special Advisor to hawk products and spew “alternative facts”), is now suddenly “seeing…

Xena, Warrior Princess for the win!

During the 1990’s, there were two fantasy TV shows that drew a tremendous amount of loyal fans – Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and Xena: Warrior Princess. For me, they weren’t always “appointment television,” in that if they were on, I’d watch them, and if they weren’t, I didn’t. I mean, certainly you’ve watched them at…
