Isn’t It Ironic?

Jimmy Fowler
David Letterman has never struck me as particularly talented, just surly and a little slow. Admirers have long defended Dave’s godawful interview skills as proof that “Late Show” is “the anti-talk show.” I enthusiasti...


Mad Muppets

Kristian Lin
Almost as big as the First Lady’s appearance on Sesame Street is the evergreen kids’ TV show parody of Mad Men. Sesame Street‘s sendup is as good as any other I’ve seen: My favorite parts are the take on...



Jim Beam And Frac Water Don’t Mix

Jeff Prince
Jim Beam over ice with a splash of H20 is my favorite cocktail, and since all three ingredients require water I am concerned when somebody comes along and threatens the earth’s supply. Fort Worth Weekly was among the first ne...


Book, Rare Book On Bond, James Bond

Baby Monster

Jimmy Fowler
It’s that season again – the time when fans of horror, suspense and speculative cinema are scrambling to find something fresh to watch. Let me recommend a low-budget satiric shocker that generated quite a buzz at this year...



Spankings Lower Kids’ IQs Or Is It An Act?

Jeff Prince
While growing up I had a friend who was spanked regularly for almost any reason by a surly father. My friend was smart and inventive when we were together with nobody else around, but when anyone in his family came into the pic...


Oh Ye Of Little Cowboys Faith

Jeff Prince
New York Giants starting safety Kenny Phillips is out for the season with a knee injury, becoming another in a long line of hobbled players on the Giants roster. Still, they managed to thump the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday night...
