Not my normal beat, for sure, and slightly off the beaten track for Robot Panic. But I recently got the chance to take in this duo’s show and I was impressed. There are a lot of acts out there catering to the wee ones, and Princess Katie and Racer Steve are such a band. But […]
As many of you have now guessed, Halloween is my favorite holiday; and it has been ever since I can remember. Maybe it’s the change of seasons, the briskness in the air, or how for some short period of time it’s ok to be spooky and dress up as someone else. My friends and I would […]
Hey everyone, sorry for the extensive delay to the summer film festival. Between pneumonia, people being out-of-town and other scheduling conflicts, the festival has had to take some unexpected time off. But god willing, it will be back soon. We’ve scrambled things around a bit and come up with a brand-new schedule. Here’s when to […]
Since the dawn of time, man (especially Drunk Man) has dreamed of flight. And before Wilbur and Orvil got it right in Kitty Hawk, several people tried and failed gloriously to achieve even moments of gravity-defying greatness.

Every year, when I am inevitably let down by the studio tentpole […]
I was at PAX East over the weekend and good times were had by all. MC Wilson has some delightful pajamas, and I may or may not have made out with some of the L4D2 crew. Conjecture abounds. All of that aside, there were a number of games and tabletop insanity going on at the […]
I’m done apologizing for loving Kevin Smith so much. I used to wonder: is it wrong for me to get so much joy out of listening to a guy talk filth all the time? I mean, when you get down to it, Smith’s whole schtick is sex, weed, and movies, and very little else. If […]
For several years the 5,000 townspeople of Montevideo, Minnesota have been hosting one of the greatest rock events of the summer. If you are thinking of such awesome tours as Ozzfest or Moondance Jam, then think again as Monty one-ups them with “Rock the Park,” an all day long tribute band show! Up in my […]
So, John and I hooked up last Saturday in beautiful Beaver Dam, the Las Vegas of Southeastern Wisconsin. We caught up on old times and decided to make a music video commemorating the event. John is the tall, blond and handsome chap (as usual).
