AC/DC's Cliff Williams is Retiring To "Chill with Family". AC/DC's Cliff Williams is Retiring To "Chill with Family".

Whether you’re talking about their 70s raw-edged days, 80s glory days, 90s jugernaut days, their 21st century days of re-discovering their own back-catalog, or just their entire career in general, AC/DC is a bone fide rock and roll icon.

Movies need music, they’ve been the “Opera” of the common citizen for nearly a century. Even non-music-fans might sorely miss the music in their favorite films. But in the early film era, that meant a pianist or organist or often a full orchestra was employed by the venue to provide this important ingredient.

You Won't Believe This One Important Rule About Sexism! You Won't Believe This One Important Rule About Sexism!

I learned one very important rule this week.. A professional blogger who no doubt is not only more “woke” than I am, but likely much more educated, had this to say:

Cool Sci-Fi Soundtrack Discovery: The Martian Chronicles Cool Sci-Fi Soundtrack Discovery: The Martian Chronicles

This is a bit of a throwback; a 2002 release of a 1979/80 television score. But it’s a really interesting “forgotten” soundtrack that I discovered this week, so here ya go!

An Ode to Fluffy, Who Was Kinda Mean to John Carpenter's Ex-Wife... An Ode to Fluffy, Who Was Kinda Mean to John Carpenter's Ex-Wife...

...but Fluffy was only mean to her because Evil Mark Twain said it was totally okay. Seriously.

Disappointment? Anger? Sadness? I Dunno. Just a Rant... Disappointment? Anger? Sadness? I Dunno. Just a Rant...

So recently, my favorite sc-fi blog did an announcement about a new sci-fi show... The whole article was a junior-high school-level snark-fest about how the show’s title was similar to another show’s title. No big deal, just a throw-away little article like on so very many other similar blogs...

Alien Brains? Yep, ALIEN BRAINS! Alien Brains? Yep, ALIEN BRAINS!

For Star Trek Week on io9, Katharine Tendacosta posted (among many great articles) “What’s Your Favorite Thing About Star Trek”, and it got me thinking about playing at Trek with my grade-school pals, in a little copse that was most always littered with ALIEN BRAINS...

I May Be Wrong, But This Seems Important... I May Be Wrong, But This Seems Important...

...not just the topics that are touched on in this classic interview between an in-his-prime George Carlin and a young Jon Stewart, but, really, the whole conversation in general.

Florida Man Has New Star Wars Spoilers, New Shirt Florida Man Has New Star Wars Spoilers, New Shirt

Florida- The “wizard” who is “just a crazy old man” seems to have become a regular source for Observation Deck Action Team 5 . During our latest clandestine meeting at a nondescript mobile home park, he revealed his name, his surprising source, and an incredible revelation about the Star Wars Universe and more.

John Carpenter, Updated For 2016 John Carpenter, Updated For 2016

Just something goofy that was inspired by a post from 99Tele:)dpr[]blems over on The Golden Horn... All you fine O-Deck heroes have The Golden Horn bookmarked, right?

The Best Film Music Program on Earth, Period. The Best Film Music Program on Earth, Period.

There are a handful of great film music radio stations, and there are quite a few cool radio shows and podcasts, old and new. But Cinematic Sound Radio is the best long-form English language show, and by a very wide margin.

The Canned Meat Product That Fuels the Golden Horn's Intrepid Crime Fighters and Heroes! The Canned Meat Product That Fuels the Golden Horn's Intrepid Crime Fighters and Heroes!

Or, it’s a sentient re-animated meat product that IS a crimefighter? I’m not sure, you’ll have to ask Four Finger Wu. I know nothing. As a matter of fact, I’m about to prove I’m an idiot...

Summer '16 was GREAT for Blockbuster SF/F Movies- Especially If You Mostly Stayed Home... Summer '16 was GREAT for Blockbuster SF/F Movies- Especially If You Mostly Stayed Home...

I avoided the Multiplex more this year than just about any summer in my life, because of lack of interest combined with bad reviews. BUT- I’ve been rocking the scores of some of 2016 weakest films on the ol’ Hi-Fi, and I’m loving them! Perhaps the fact that I didn’t see the movies helps in this regard...
