The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Creator:
Amy Sherman-Palladino

Stars:
Rachel Brosnahan
Alex Borstein Tony Shalhoub
In 1958 New York, Midge Maisel's life is on track- husband, kids, and elegant Yom Kippur dinners in their Upper West Side apartment. But when her life takes a surprise turn, she has to quickly decide what else she's good at - and going from housewife to stand-up comic is a wild choice for everyone but her. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls).

Oh boy, am in trouble here. See I watched the pilot episode earlier this year (I think) and voted for more, the pilot left me begging Amazon to pick this series up. And over on Rotten Tomatoes, it has this whole 95% fresh thing going on. So I would ask them the Tomatoes did you watch all 8 episodes? Because if you did am pretty sure you would not feel the same way, how do I really feel well read on shall you?

Man, the first 3 …

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Wow, gang Christmas has come and gone, we lost, even more, celebrities and the New Year is upon us. I for one can not wait for 2018 in hopes that it turns into a better year. I did not have a bad 2017 just disappointing one I feel like I was sick most of the year. In fact, I got sick again on Christmas Eve and have spent my vacation on the couch.

I definitely had a fun Christmas and a white one at that but I can not lie I look forward to the days we can sleep in just a little bit that morning I love my youngest but getting up at 5 AM to start a long day makes for well a long day. I received some pretty cool gifts like a Tony Romo bubble head and the Friday the 13th video game but the best surprise came from the mind of that little 9year old. She is such a smart kid after I poured hours upon hours playing Stardew Valley she was smart enough to ask her mom to take to the internet looking for merchandise for the game. The end result was a kick-ass shirt that I did not see coming in a mil…

** Warning Humbug is not for small ears or if you are at work **




When her neighbor refuses to get into the Christmas spirit, a jolly citizen takes matters into her own hands.


Gremlins Recall is one heck of a fan-made film! From French New Wolf & Whitelist in association with Mindseye, Gremlins: Recall stars Katherine Rodriguez, Randy Irwin, Sarah Lilly and Robert Wood. It was produced by Nash Cubero, Rich Salamone, and Sarah Lilly with executive producer Jerad Anderson. Isaac Bauman served as cinematographer with Collin Davis. Eric Fox handled creature effects.

Creepmas has really caught on in the past few years we have seen more and more Christmas slasher themed movies than ever before. Here is a short list of yuletide magic for you to seek out.

Better Watch Out has set the indie world on fire this year. When you think the suburbs, you think safety, but this holiday night the suburbs are anything but safe. Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) thought this babysitting job was going to be an easy night, but the night takes a turn when dangerous intruders break in and terrorize her and the twelve-year-old boy, Luke (Levi Miller), she's caring for. Ashley defends her charge to the best of her ability only to discover this is no normal home invasion.

You can currently stream Better watch out on must streaming rental sites like Google Play or Vudu. The Blu-Ray hits the shelves next week.

Rare Car found in the Illinois Valley

Image
It's not every day when you open your news feeds and the big story is happing in your backyard. It seems hidden away for more than fifty years was an old and rare Marmon from 1927. Here is snip-it from the story,

The La Salle News-Tribune reports that the ninety-year-old car has spent the last five decades tucked away in a garage in rural Illinois, owned by a Marmon enthusiast named Kent Cherpeske. When he passed away in April, his brother began sorting through his things and discovered the two-door model and an incomplete four-door model in a back garage on the family's property. He contacted a mechanic friend to inquire about fixing them up and selling them, and the mechanic recognized the rare cars and got in touch with the Marmon Club to find a proper buyer.

On Tuesday, Cherpeske's brother and a friend towed the two-door Marmon out of its fifty-year resting place, bringing it out into the sun for the first time since John F. Kennedy was president. It hasn't aged to…

Sad Day

Hard to celebrate Creepmas when today we remember Peral Harbor. It just seems so odd that we are inching closer and closer to a war that nobody can win. I think for the first time since the 80's I actually wonder about nuclear war and how it will affect us. I still pray that we do not see that day.





To the brave that fought and lost their lives I salute you.

That Sinterklass!

St. Nicolas Day,



In Belgium, they celebrate Sinterklaas on the morning of the 6 December. In the days leading up to December 6th just after Saint Nicholas will arrive by steamboat around mid-November, young children put their shoes in front of the chimneys and sing Sinterklaas songs. Often they put a carrot or some hay in their shoes, as a gift to St. Nicholas' horse. In recent years the horse has been named Schimmel. 


The next morning children would find a small present in their shoes, ranging from sweets to marbles or some other small toy. Just like Santa Claus, all children receive gifts without distinction. This is often done by placing a bag filled with presents outside the house or living room, after which a neighbor or parent bangs on the door or window, pretending to be Sinterklaas' assistant. Or you could hire or ask someone to dress up as Sinterklaas and deliver the presents personally. 

Sinterklaas wears a bishop's robes including a red cape and mitre (bishops h…

The Krampus

Image
Happy Krampus creeps!


In folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in several countries including Austria, Bavaria, and parts of Northern Italy to name a few. The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated its pre-Christian origin.

In traditional parades and in such events as the Krampuslauf, young men dressed as Krampus participate; such events occur annually in most Alpine towns. Krampus is featured on holiday greeting cards called Krampuskarten.



In the aftermath of the 1923 election in Austria, the Krampus tradition was prohibited by the Dollfuss regime under the Fatherland's Front and the Christian Social Party. In the 1950s, the government distributed pamphlets titled "Kramp…
