Green Hornet Review

Just in time for the Diamond Anniversary of the character’s first radio show broadcast:
A review of the new Green Hornet film.

I haven’t been this confused by a movie in a long time. Not confused by what happened in it, as the plot has all the complexity of shampoo instructions, but confused about how I felt.

I liked, it, I liked it a great deal. It was very funny, and had over the top, exciting action scenes, causing me to cheer out loud repeatedly.

However, I feel like I should have hated it.

Welcome to my blog...I guess.

Quoting an obscure old Bob's song seems about the right way to start.

I think I've been writing a "humor blog" since before blogs existed  I sent my writings out by e-mail and via that archaic building known as the "Post Office".  However, in order to remain at my proper level behind current technology I need to start a blog, (and begin ignoring Twitter).

There will of course be movie, book and comic book reviews as they must be included, by law, in a blog.

Here's some other categories:

A Carnivore's Guide to Cardiology - I got a surprise diagnosis with no symptoms just before hitting 40 that has turned me down a healthier path than I had dreamed of before, and provided a surprising about of comedy material.

Tales from "Up the Lake" - Over 80 years ago my grandparents, and other Italians from the Bronx found a picnic spot near a lake in the woods near Bear Mountain. Eventually, cabins were built and their descendants continue to spend summers there with no electricity, running water, or limits on mirth and mayhem.

There will also be songs, poems, and anything else that seems funny at the time.

So join me won't you?  There will be significant posts at least once a week. With probably more insignificant stuff tossed in between for fun.
