This post is very much about my own reaction to the news, but please send your thoughts and prayers to his family, his friends, and his bandmates.
Yesterday I was blindsided by news that literally broke me. Linkin Park lead singer and frontman Chester Bennington had died of an apparent suicide at his home. Chester had previously battled with addiction and depression, and it seems as if the news that one of his best friends, Chris Cornell, had committed suicide was too much for Chester to deal with on his own.

It’s finally time for the next film in the ALIEN franchise. Very soon I’ll be seeing Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, but, leading up to that film’s release, I want to review each and every film in the franchise. Therefore next week is ALIEN Week. (more…)
It was just going to be the same kind of reaction post that I do every year, but then something happened. Warren Beatty had been given the wrong envelope. Faye Dunaway thus announced the wrong Best Picture winner. This is insane. Unbelievable. Moonlight is the real Best Picture winner. (more…)

The end is near! – We’re getting closer and closer to the end of 2016, and I almost don’t believe we’re already in Thanksgiving week. That also means that you might be looking for my best of the year lists for films and television shows.
Of course, I’ve also got my little awards presentation thing again this year. So, let me tell you how I’m going to be doing it this year, and how that way differs from last year’s schedule. (more…)
