I’m tempted to say the Stones crossed that line after Dirty Work ... though I think someone could reasonably argue that Tattoo You was their last “real band” album before going on permanent cruise control. I’ll leave your big final question to the Dylanologists out there!

I’m not sure. I seem to recall, though, that he has to give explicit permission for every single use ... which would include every individual episode that features or even mentions Jack Knight. Unless Robinson DID cut a special deal, I can see how that might be daunting to any writer thinking about using the Read more

Maybe we’re all inside Tyler Cornack’s butt and just don’t know it.

It’s tricky. I mean, the band was already well established, with several albums under its belt before Steve Perry ever joined—he’s scarcely a fitting indicator of “true” Journey. If anyone could be called the band’s original guiding spirit it might be Gregg Rolie ... but his departure went almost unremarked, and Read more

America’s celebrity culture is certainly toxic enough ... but all the anecdotal evidence suggests that Japan’s is on a whole different and squalid level. If any of you avoid factory-farming products on principle, well, I’m half-tempted to say you have equally good reasons to pass on lots of Japan’s pop culture.

Well, America is a country where the head of state and head of government is the same person ... which lends itself to celebrity treatment of the guy in charge of the executive branch, which is how we got 2020. There are advantages to having a powerless head of state (like a monarch) who draws all the celeb worship Read more

I shall be horribly disappointed in this show if Ma Hunkel doesn’t run the local diner.

James Robinson secured all sorts of legal rights to the Jack Knight character, and has to personally approve its use by DC or anyone else. The showrunners might’ve decided not to bother.

Pretty cute show so far. However, the main feeling it left me with was jonesing hopelessly for a JSA franchise. I NEED some Golden Age.

Obviously, this movie’s fatal flaw was not giving Depp a stupid hat to wear.

A “democratically elected socialist government”? Sounds like something that needs overthrowing by fair means or by foul. A “reign of terror” is the very least such things need to get answered by.

Between Phillips’s target audience and this one’s, that makes a pretty solid starter list of “people who should’ve been sent to military school.” Read more

He’s not lying about Baby Doll. Tennessee Williams wrote the screenplay, and nothing ol’ Tom ever wrote before or since topped it for implicit, fleshcrawling sleaze.
