I'm way behind (like decades) on my Tokusatsu selection, but this new Ultraman X trailer is looking pretty good! He's looking like he's got some new gear in his arsenal, and can deliver a pretty sweet side kick. The scene with the ship doesn't look so hot, but who knows.. Show More Summary

MY THOUGHTS ON THE CIVIL WAR AND ITS AFTERMATH, from 2003. I should note that the Democrats were on the losing side.

1. The Arcs, "Stay in My Corner"Dan Auerbach's got a brand-new band! The first thing we've heard from the Black Keys frontman's side gig is this sweet, laid-back slice of falsetto soul, with a melody that reminds us of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy." We're psyched for the Arcs' debut album,...
My own first-hand experience with corruption came in 1983 during a short stint in Beirut covering the civil war for The Satellite News Channel (a failed collaborative effort between Westinghouse Broadcasting and ABC News created to put then-fledgling CNN out of business..).
