Sarah and Sean welcome Dave back for a special episode about the film career of a man who helped define the youth of a generation… John Hughes.
Time is very limited. You are only allocated so much of it to accomplish your tasks at hand. Oftentimes, the urgent things in life take over, whether they be car payments and student loans, or picking up the kids from school and going grocery shopping. There is always something. Trust me, I know all about it. I work two full time jobs, take care of my family (that includes two kids and one on the way) and volunteer at my local observatory. We are all busy.
Finally, Eric and Bryan conclude (for now) their discussion on Rome, with an emphasis on the Emperors from Augustus through the Byzantines. Featuring Special Guest Dan Lazarus, a.k.a. The Lazarus Man. Enjoy!
I was a child of the nineties. Though I was born in the early eighties, I really started making badass memories at about age seven. By that time, I was more aware of what was going on around me and had developed a full-blown obsession with movies. Many of my best childhood memories are tied to a movie or at the very least a timeframe related to a movie’s theatrical release. I’ve been in a place lately where I’ve been purchasing and revisiting these films to see what I may have missed when I was a wee one. So here we go, ladies and gents… the first in a series for your reading enjoyment!

I want you to imagine you are watching a film. The final scene is playing out. The last word is uttered, the characters smile/cry as the sun rises/sets on the day/week. The credits start to roll and you’re left with this feeling that you can’t quite understand. You feel empty. Let down. Disappointed.
