Here are my mini-reviews of the first 5 movies. Iron Man 2008 -> 4.5/5 The Incredible Hulk 2008 -> 4/5 […]

Impeaching and/or resisting Trump

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

I have some hope that Donald Trump might not be president for all of the next 4 years. There are at least 3 ways he might be removed before then. 1) He could be impeached. Even Republicans, loathsome as they are, are not going to just let Trump do whatever he wants. You can bet that the word […]

TV show creators worth knowing about, part 1

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

These are people who created brilliant science fiction and fantasy TV shows. I’ll mention all their SF & F TV shows, as well as some of their other projects. These are people I’m most likely to follow wherever they go — TV shows, comics, books, movies. Many of them also had some interesting-sounding projects that didn’t end […]

A moment of continued emergency

Posted by Dave Switzer under From the web, My thoughts

Whenever I think about Donald Trump I still get upset. I certainly don’t envy anyone living in the US right now. How can we wrap our heads around the concept that Trump will be president for the next 4 years? Adam Gopnik at The New Yorker calls this “a moment of continued emergency.” He says that […]
