‘Better Call Saul’ Has Become Better Than ‘Breaking Bad’

'Better Call Saul' Has Become Better Than 'Breaking Bad'

I never thought I’d say it. I’ve always been a huge fan of “Breaking Bad.” But with this sixth season, the prequel to “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul,” has become better than the original series. The tipping point for me was the last episode, and last moments, of Nacho Varga, which were so tense and intense yet touching and beautiful in so many ways. That incredibly difficult mixture of emotions to attain, and the ultimate fate of one of my favorite characters in both shows, just showed how masterful “Saul” has become. The way the two... Read More

As Halfway To Halloween Hits, Let's Look At The Chilling Fun Of Everyone's Favorite Wild Holiday

From the first time I met Jeff O’Neil, I knew he was something of a mad genius. O’Neil’s idea for a Midwest Monster Fest was so brilliant I was amazed that no one else had come up with it. And, sure enough, it ended up being a huge success. Now O’Neil has had another fantastic idea. The Halfway to Halloween Convention, presented by Midwest Monster Fest, the Quad Cities’ premier horror convention, will take place on May 13th and 14th at the Rock Island County Fairgrounds in East Moline, and as the first day of the event will transpire on a Friday the 13th, Halfway to Halloween... Read More

Johnny Depp Trial Offers Teachable Moment About Questioning Rumors And Stories

Johnny Depp Trial Offers Teachable Moment About Questioning Rumors And Stories

It’s not just Johnny Depp. Think about all of the people who you’ve instantly judged, based only on hearsay from other people, or the accusations or insults of someone who obviously had a reason to slander that person. Think about all the times you’ve believed something you’ve read without stopping to think about it or check it out or even give it time for the full story to be revealed. Think about all of the times you’ve spread around false information on the internet and in real life based only upon rumor and hearsay. And think about how that may have... Read More

Netflix Needs To Chill Out And Get A Grip Before Destroying Its Brand

Netflix Needs To Chill Out And Get A Grip Before Destroying Its Brand

It’s extremely rare that your brand becomes so well known that it becomes a part of the popular lexicon, particularly in regard to a term of social interaction. But, Netflix and Chill, has become a popular phrase over the last couple of years. The introduction of it into the social conversation just goes to show how ubiquitous Netflix has become over the past few years. It’s pretty amazing. Twenty years ago, the company, struggling along, went to Blockbuster attempting to sell themselves to the then-monolithic entertainment entity. Now, Netflix is a goliath, and Blockbuster, well,... Read More

Well, Quad-Cities, What’s It REALLY Like To Be The Easter Bunny?

Well, Quad-Cities, What's It REALLY Like To Be The Easter Bunny?

Three African American children grilled me about why the Bunny was white. One of the children, no more than 8 years old, said, “This Bunny is out of touch with what’s going out there.” But I can’t talk; I can only animate. And that was my first day as the Easter Bunny. Yes, I was one of THOSE people. And by THOSE people, I mean I was one of the few, the underpaid, the sorta proud, who has donned the costume of the Easter Bunny for public appearances at everywhere from shopping malls to car dealerships to libraries and more. Where was I? Well, everywhere and nowhere,... Read More

Why Isn’t The Latest UFO News Getting More Press Than Will Smith?

April 15th, 2022
Why Isn't The Latest UFO News Getting More Press Than Will Smith?

Here’s my last take on the Will Smith and Chris Rock thing: We need to stop ignoring the fact that various government agencies have admitted over the past year that UFOs are real. Not even kidding. I know, I know, I usually joke around about conspiracies and such in this column, but this is real — the government has admitted that UFOs exist. And instead of concentrating on ridiculous crap like Will Smith, the Kardashians, Kid Rock, Bhad Bhabie, and various other moronic garbage, it’s kind of stunning that more people aren’t interested in, and talking about, this shocking... Read More
