recent from Music Solid Little Documentary
Interested in checking out a solid little documentary? Ginny and I will be talking about a couple we watched recently on the Charlie Tonic Hour, but I highly recommend Don Letts film Punk: Attitude. I’ve seen it four or five times and ran into it again recently.
recent from Charlie's Articles Star Wars Dominated The Toy Industry
We knew long ago that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would do well. The fact that it now has the title of the highest-grossing film of all time in the United States and Canada beating 2009’s Avatar makes a strong statement to what it has achieved. Given it has also claimed the title of the...

The discussion goes from silly to gross to serious and back to silly again while we wonder who on earth gets paid to come up with this stuff.

The fact that it now has the title of the highest-grossing film of all time in the United States and Canada beating 2009’s Avatar makes a strong statement to what it has achieved.

Adopt The Addams Family With These Six Creepy Collectibles

Though probably best known for the television series, animated series, and feature films, The Addams Family began life as a collection of 150 single panel cartoons which ran in The New Yorker from 1938 to 1988. Created by cartoonist Charles Addams, these one-off humor shorts took the idea of what it meant to be an American family at that time and flipped the concept...

Teasing An Upcoming Alfred Hitchcock Figure

For a film maker born in 1899, it is really impressive just how much modern cinema owes to the film legacy and creativity of Alfred Hitchcock. He was groundbreaking as a director in terms of cinematography, personal expression, and pure film invention. He did things on his sets that other directors didn’t think possible and, in the end, it changed film and challenged...

Gather Your Party As Dungeons & Dragons Goes Virtual

I am quite the fan of tabletop role-playing games (RPG’s) like Dungeons & Dragons, Champions, and Pathfinder. Ever since my grandmother bought me that first basic D&D boxed set for Christmas in 1977 (thinking it was a jigsaw puzzle), my lifelong quest to remain entertained has often turned on the spin of a 20-sided dice. In fact, I devoted a good chunk of my...

Who Remembers Madballs?

Who remembers Madballs? I certainly do, as I was just discussing their history with a friend just last week. Little did I know that the marketing masterminds at Mondo were channeling my 80s nostalgia for a full brand reboot with Marvel at their side. As recently announced, these spherical treasures of old are returning, re-imagined with a decidedly modern twist. The new...
