  • "Pushing Daisies"

    The first season of this new ABC series just came out on DVD. " Pushing Daisies " is a fast-paced, whimsical, and light-hearted comedy -- nothing like the dark humor of "Six Feet Under" that I expected. Bryan Fuller ( Heroes, Wonderfalls ) and Barry Sonnenfeld ( Men in Black ) are...

  • I see London, I see France...

    I see someone’s…No, that’s wrong! An unsuspecting character finds something interesting. It’s a hat! All of the other animals think so too, except for one. This is a really cute book about unmentionables that will have kids and grownups laughing out loud!

  • KA-POW!!! "Batman: The Movie" a campy good bat-time!

    I must preface this review with the fact that I'm only 25 years old. I did not get to experience Adam West's Batman during its bat-heydey in the 60s. However, I do have fond memories of going to grandma & grandpa's (they had cable!) as a kid, watching reruns on their HUGE 27-inch console...

  • "T*h*e*E*d*u*c*a*t*i*o*n*o*f*H*y*m*a*n*K*a*p*l*a*n" by Leonard Ross

    This was an Oaklyn book discussion selection this month, so there are plenty of copies, even though it was originally published in 1937. The group member who had suggested it brought in a hardcover copy printed during WWII that still had the price sticker on it - $1.37. Leonard Ross is a pseudonym. The...

  • He's not your average "Farmer John"

    The Real Dirt on Farmer John is a comeback story of the most fascinating kind. The documentary begins with Farmer John tasting the dirt on his farm and ends with him dancing around the farm dressed up as a honey bee! In between is the story of one man's struggle to keep his family's farm alive...

  • "In Bruges"

    A couple of friends mentioned this flick, so when I saw a copy on the NEW shelf, I grabbed it. I had imagined some dense foreign flick, and wasn't prepared for this wacky British combination of comedy and drama. Bruges, it turns out, is a town in Belgium that contains one of the most perfectly preserved...

  • Snow Cake (2006)

    I picked this one up because the name intrigued me. I really didn't even read the synopsis on the back cover - just took it home and popped it in. The story is about an ex-con, Alex (Alan Rickman), who becomes entangled in the life of a hitchhiker, Vivienne (Emily Hampshire), he picks up while driving...
