Trick r’ Treat

You want to see something really scary? Last weekend, Saw V crept from the shadows and reaped over $30 million dollars from those insatiable gore hounds who turn out year after year for another heaping helping of torture porn. Of course, for the first Halloween in half a decade, that boffo box-office wasn’t enough to…

My Favorite Things – ‘Top 5 Scary Movies’

(*Editor’s Note – This is a reprint from a piece I posted two years ago today. I’ll have a Halloween post up next week with pics of the kids Trick r’ Treating. Also, that creepy cool pumpkin shot in the header is not from a film. It is courtesy of my main man Sean O’Brien…

Behind the Curtain: The Completely Unauthorized, Mostly 100% True, Shocking Expose of ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’

Show’s over folks. There’s nothing more to see here. That is unless you’ve been left lingering for some truly titillating tales from back stage. If that’s your bent than you came to the right place. Now that I’m off contract, I have no qualms about letting y’all in on the back stage secrets behind South…

My Top 10 Posts of All Time – #9. Along Came a Ryder

9.   Along Came A Ryder (originally published June 13, 2007) Frequent readers of this site are accustomed to the little mini-series I like to launch. Essentially, I like to wrap similarly themed posts under one common umbrella (hence the My Favorite Things series, In Ed’s Head, etc…) At the end of the day, they all…

My Top 10 Posts of All Time – #10. Kicking and Screaming

  As promised, I am going to begin running My Top 10 Favorite Posts of All Time, culled from the 300 I’ve published since January 2006. Yes, this smacks of narcissism but believe me when I say this is the only damned thing I’m good at. I can’t walk. I can’t talk. I can’t chew…

‘Nest’ Nuts Net 5 Ed Heads

As that Variety-esque headline screams, the reviews are in. “I hope you take this as a compliment… I really HATED you!!!” – Random Audience Member #1 “You’re a complete bastard!!!” – Random Audience Member #2 “As your mother, the woman who played a major role in your conception, I can only wonder – where did…

300

  Aaaaaaannnnnnndddddd CUT!!! Fade to Black. I did it. I made it to the top. 300 posts in less than 3 years serves as my own personal Everest even if there were days (make that weeks), when the tempest of thoughts raging in my head yielded to an unsettling calm and the endeavor proved Sisyphusian as I toyed with shutting…

Eight is Never Enough

Eight years ago today, on a brilliant blue swatch of Indian Summer, Andi and I were married. Eight years later, we’re on our second home, raising our two children, caring for our two pups and realizing that we make a might fine dynamic duo ourselves. Having just returned from our annual Columbus Day weekend sojourn…

Two Roads Diverged

This hallowed month of October has proven more haunting than most as we’re merely six days in and I have already been visited by numerous specters from my past. Much of this has to do with my recent initiation into the Facebook community – where the mere mention of your name calls old high school…

Netflix Notes – ‘The Need for Speed’ Edition

Reading through Part 1, I see I strayed a bit off course. I promised they wouldn’t take the form of traditional reviews but you can take the Ebert out of the Guy but you can’t take the Guy out of Ebert. (I’d like to say that sounded better in my head but now that I’m…
