  • Bring it, Godzilla!

    November 2, 2019 by

    With Kong and Godzilla about to square off in cinemas next year, the question of how Kong could be competitive unless he is somehow greatly enhanced beyond his original capabilities emerges repeatedly.

  • The Blog is Back!

    October 26, 2019 by

    Hi, all! Eccentric Entries, the blog, is back in operation as of today. With the restart is a change in direction away from YouTubers and back to the craziness that rolls around between my ears. Yay, craziness! So, why the change in direction? Time. My personal life has gained more complexity and I have less time to split… Read more

  • Delicious Disasters!

    December 8, 2018 by

    Yet, even as the past is filled with moments of flaming destruction, the present features a new, fiery menace. The threat? The cooking of Sam, the would-be kitchen master and frequent customer of kitchen remodelers.

  • Their Sweet Home Life

    November 17, 2018 by

    Meet Christine and Chris, a married couple living somewhere in the vicinity of Cleveland, Ohio, and the creators and producers of the “Our Sweet Home Life” YouTube channel.

  • Revisiting 2016

    September 16, 2018 by

    We have borrowed a time machine and journeyed back to 2016. Let’s talk about the election, people. Both major party candidates are flawed. We Americans are being offered the worst possible choices of all time for this nation’s highest elected office. Worse than Carter vs. Ford. Worse than Harrison vs. Van Buren. Worse than any presidential candidates I can bring to mind. Of the two, one is a lying cheater with a long, scandal-plagued history. The other is Donald Trump.

  • Support For Women? I Failed!

    August 29, 2018 by

    …I’m not going to give myself a migraine by dwelling on it. I simply rescinded the offer once the specified time passed and moved on.

  • So, They’re Moving “Fearless Girl”

    April 21, 2018 by

    Fearless Girl? No, she is apparently Unyielding Proletariat Girl Resisting the Bourgeoisie. Karl Marx would like that name for the statue. Unfortunately, it seems New York City’s elected officials would like that name as well.

  • It’s Not A Drive-By!

    April 14, 2018 by

    My friends, I intended to show pictures of murals that I snapped here in New York City, but upon inspection of my work, I found my efforts wanting. The lovingly crafted murals were created by truly gifted artists, and each one depicts various musicians who lived in Queens County. The men and women who painted… Read more

  • OJ, Twelve Years Later

    March 31, 2018 by

    The Fox network recently aired a twelve-year-old interview of OJ Simpson in which the former gridiron legend told a “hypothetical” tale of how he would commit the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and waiter Ronald Goldman. With absolutely no fear of facing a criminal trial again, Simpson was free to engage in—ahem—murder fantasy during… Read more

  • Remembering My Other Mom

    March 24, 2018 by

    The world is a colder, meaner place now, for a light has dimmed forever. That light, Mrs. Ester Cousins, came to an end at the end of February, and the extended family has reeled ever since.

  • A New Home For “Fearless Girl”

    March 14, 2018 by

    With her chin up and hands placed firmly on her hips, the young girl’s slender frame stands rigid and defiant before an onrushing creature of muscle and sinew. An unseen wind catches her hair and billows her dress like a sail, yet the girl remains still and unyielding. Mere feet from her is a horned beast of enormous size and even greater power, but the girl’s face shows neither fear nor concern, but unfailing confidence and immeasurable calm. Her name is Fearless Girl, and she is currently a close second to the Statue of Liberty as the New York area’s most famous sculpture.

  • Rejecting Hate

    March 4, 2018 by

    I sometimes receive disturbing feedback to my blog entries. The notes in question largely ramble on and are filled with baseless accusations and racism. In one case, the note referenced a website that was filled with even greater amounts of rambling hatred. Clearly, some people have too much time on their hands and too much hatred to contain!

  • Preventing Mass Murder

    February 25, 2018 by

    President Trump favors the elimination of “bump stocks” and raising the age limit for gun ownership as forms of gun control, but such measures will not result in safer schools as they address the tools and not the people who would use those tools maliciously.

  • The Common Denominator

    February 18, 2018 by

    The following is a riddle. There were three different TV and film presentations shown between 1967 and 1977 that shared one thing in common. Two of the presentations are from the iconic Batman and Star Trek series of the 1960s, while the final one formed the third entry of a disconnected three-film series from the 1970s. See if you can guess their common denominator before I reveal the answer at the end of this article.

  • New York Fact-O-Gram #5

    February 11, 2018 by

    The Turner was a newly launched warship when it entered WWII in June 1943. Less than a year later, her flaming hulk would sink to the bottom of New York Harbor. How the ship came to meet such a fate in a place far removed from enemy fire remains a point of debate among many.

  • Becoming Me

    January 21, 2018 by

    When Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev spoke before the UN General Assembly and infamously banged a shoe on the podium before him in protest of American actions, my Mom was there.
