Midweek Media, Of a Sort

This isn’t a complete breakdown of media images or messages, more of a collection of seriously ooky shit that companies and their advertising agencies think we should find soooooo compelling we have seemingly inexplicable urges to eat, purchase, patronize or otherwise give them our hard earned dollars. I might be tetchy from a headache that […]

Reaction: Supernatural (7×16)

I confess to not having high hopes on this one, based on the only spoilers I had prior to watching – my cable company’s description of the episode, which was that Dean succumbed to some kind of ballerina curse. You can see why I wasn’t terribly excited for the return of Supernatural after its … […]

Reaction: Fringe (4×14)

Last Fringe before another hiatus. I’d gripe about hiatuses and their frequency and opine for television days of old, but I think you all already know how I feel on that subject. Hehe. I don’t really understand why Walter and then Lincoln are so nasty to Peter about apparently projecting his memories onto Olivia, like […]

Reaction: Fringe (4×13)

[…]

Reaction: Supernatural (7×14)

Okay, let me just say that I was very impressionable when they did that made-for-TV movie version of Stephen King’s It, and even before that, clowns freaked me the hell out. My baby sister had this little wind up toy that was a clown and it gave me nightmares. It’s arms and hands were basically […]
