J. Clifford’s one-image review of the new Hobbit movie by Peter Jackson reminded me that this third movie in the series had come out. I had forgotten, honestly, and that’s saying a lot. I have watched every minute of the making-of footage of each of the three Lord of the Rings movies by Peter Jackson, […]
This image constitutes my entire review of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. I won’t put any more effort into the review than this, because Peter Jackson didn’t appear to put much effort into the movie itself. All I have to say is that I was waiting for the entire movie for Jar Jar […]
Here on Irregular Times, we often debunk the ridiculous conspiracy theories that political extremists concoct to justify their absurd ideologies.
Tonight, I have a conspiracy theory of my own to introduce. It comes after watching The Interview, a movie starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
It’s a terrible movie. James Franco overacts beyond the […]
Fulfilling my proper role as a father in fattening my children up with electronic gaming that would make Tipper Gore blanch, this afternoon I purchased a game through Origin. After shoveling $4,932,894.32(9/10 – damn the government taxes) down the gaping maw of the Origin shopping cart, I received an e-mail informing me blandly that all […]
This year, I have taken on the responsibility of giving my 13 year-old son some exposure to science in addition to what he gets at school. So, I was excited when I saw a copy of Mad Science: Experiments You Can Do At Home – But Probably Shouldn’t by Theodore Gray. What a great title, […]
A few months ago, my wife was diagnosed with a deadly cancer that will kill her sooner or (a bit) later and is causing a lot of pain along the way. I’m not only married; I have school-aged children, too. While I keep one eye on my wife I keep another on my children. They’ve […]
The release of iOS 8 and the release of OS Yosemite are a month out of sync with each other. Apparently, no one at Apple, the company that is supposed to specialize in elegant design, considered the implications of this gap for the user experience. […]
Edge Of Tomorrow thus manages to fail, simultaneously, to be imaginative and to be plausible. I think I might have had a better time watching the movie with the talking raccoon. […]
When you visit the website of furniture and tchotchke seller Dot & Bo, this is what you see. At first glance, the Dot and Bo “splash” screen doesn’t look unusual — many websites that try to sell you something would like to have your Facebook account information and e-mail address, all the better to […]
As I began reading A Study in Revenge: A Novel by Kieran Shields, I was willing to overlook the literary mimicry of Arthur Conan Doyle. Archie Lean, a well-meaning workaday detective in the late 1800s who needs outside help to crack a case, is clearly a mix of Inspector Lestrade and John Watson. The dapper, […]
This morning, my dogs discovered Win-Win Games For All Ages, and they tore right through it. They were voracious readers. It was full of ideas they could bite into. They really ate it up. They licked each sentence…
… okay, I think I’m out of metaphors now.
