Anyway, I really appreciate everyone's continued enthusiasm for this blogathon--it's awesome, especially five years on. And as always, in anyone would like to … Continue reading Thirty-one Days Until the Fifth So Bad It’s Good Blogathon
Hey, all! Gill's and my Great Muppet Star Caper will be dropping in six days and counting...can you believe it? We're enjoying and appreciating the way so many of you have gotten into this concept, which, by the way, was the lovely Gill's idea, and it's going to be really cool to see everyone's posts. … Continue reading Less Than One Week Until the Great Muppet Guest Star Caper
It's always interesting to see how places are portrayed onscreen, whether the place is another character in the story or just the background. It's also funny to see locations stand in for other locations, such as a movie set in New York or Chicago being filmed in Toronto, or Vancouver, British Columbia pretending to be … Continue reading Announcing the Seen On the Screen Blogathon
The Muppet Show was de rigueur for a lot of people in the seventies and eighties, and over forty years later it still holds up wonderfully well. For those who haven't seen it, it was a variety show with songs, dances, recurring sketches, and wall-to-wall schtick, including box seat commentary from perennial hecklers Stanley and Waldorf. … Continue reading Announcing the Great Muppet Guest Star Caper!
We have come to the end of the blogathon, everyone, and it's been a fun one! I hope you all have enjoyed yourselves. I'm still working through all your great posts, and so far one of the things that sticks out is the variety. We've got good movies, not-so-good movies, comedies, TV shows, silents, sci-fi. … Continue reading The Fake Teenager Festivus: Wrapup
It's the third and last day of our Fake Teenager Festivus, y'all, and I hope everyone's enjoying what we've seen so far.

Yep, it's that time again, guys. *insert evil laughter here* It's hard to believe the So Bad It's Good Blogathon is coming back for its fifth consecutive year. They say time flies when you're having fun, but it also flies when you're groaning and flinching, preferably from the ludicrous monstrosity inhabiting your screen. For those … Continue reading Announcing the Fifth So Bad It’s Good Blogathon!
Seven days left, all, until our Festivus commences. Are you ready? I know I sure am--it's gonna be fun. Thanks to everyone who's joined our growing list of contributors!

Thanks tons to everyone who have signed up so far! You all are awesome and I really appreciate having you on board! And if … Continue reading One Month Until the Fake Teenager Festivus
We all know teenagers are rarely cast as characters their age, and, as some have noted, teen-oriented shows have become even more prevalent lately. There are a lot of reasons for Hollywood's chronological smudge tactics. Teenagers, at least those under eighteen, can't put in as many hours a day, they may be growing or have … Continue reading Announcing the Fake Teenager Festivus!

Friends, here we are for our fifth trip down the Great White Way, and I have mixed feelings because we missed the Tonys this year. Yeah. I've been laboring under the impression that the Tonys were going to stay in September for the time being, but in March the Broadway League and the American Theater … Continue reading The Fifth Broadway Bound Blogathon Has Arrived
We've been talking about Tolkien a lot lately on Taking Up Room and Taking Up More Room, which I'm completely good with, even though the latest buzz centers around the abhorrent new Rings of Power series (read my Substack review here). Groan. Anyway, since I don't want to repeat myself, I thought I would jump … Continue reading My Tolkien Blog Party Tag Answers
It's coming up quick, guys. The cast has been off book for months, everything is set, and dress rehearsal will come and go. Are you all ready for the curtain to rise on our little production?
