This Week in the World of CWJ

So, I decided last week that from now on I would recommend a blog on my weekly ramblings. This is turned into a harder task that I first thought. Since I use a blogspot blog, I thought I’d use the next blog feature at the top of my blog to find other interesting blogs. The thing is, if I find a blog I like, I can follow it and hopefully the person on the other end will check out my blog. This is not a scam. I am not one of those that will follow every blog in hopes they will follow me. Only blogs that I really feel are interesting, ones that I may want to actually read once in a while would I follow.

What I find however is most blogs have the recent post with something like this ”I know it has been a while since I’ve posted but life has got very busy lately but I’m hoping to blog more often . . . “ And that would have been posted 2 or 3 months ago without any new updates.

Next is the family blog. I know these are great for the people involved in those families, but nothing on them is worth me recommending.

This is followed by the personal blog. The creator of this blog has decided to post an entry about everything that happens in his life. “Today I ate a Quart Pounder with Cheese and it didn’t sit well, spent a lot of time in the bathroom. . .” This is more of an internet diary that no one but the author would ever have much interest in, unless, of course, he gets famous. Hey Dell Griffith!

So today's blog is one called It is a site dedicated to the off-beat films I really enjoy. They have nice forum with a bunch of like-mined movie watchers that certainly know a lot more about b-Movies than me. The site is filled with all kinds of great movie information, review, pictures and more.

I think the name, "Bad Movies" give the wrong idea, however. It is not all about bad films, but more about films that are just not the main stream, low-budget, cult films.

So, I am hard at work on this weeks show, harder than usual. This show is one that is near and dear to my heart. I won't tell you too much about it, you'll just have to check it out for yourself. Here is one of the clips I'll probably be using. It might give you an idea!

This week I'd like to introduce you to Brian Dunning. Brian is the host of Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena is a weekly pro-science, anti-pseudoscience podcast. In a nut shell (What the hell does that mean, in a nut shell?), Brian takes on all those weird, explained stories we hear about all the time, like strange lights in the sky or mysterious figures lurking in the shadows that many consider proof of a paranormal, alien visited, monster hiding world and give real, down to Earth, scientific explanations.

If you don't understand podcasts yet, click here to read my article on the subject!

Friday night on Turner Classic Movies, the will be showing the best of the Zucker/Zucker/Abrahams films such as Airplane, Top Secret!, and Naked Gun. Of course we've all seen these films a million times but they still hold up for a bunch of good laughs. Also, late night on Friday, early Saturday, 1960's Steve Allen film, College Confidential. I might DVR this one just out of curiosity.

That's it for this week.
