In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Dear Blowhards --

You've visited the Art and Popular Culture wiki, I trust? Dedicated to seeking "connections, bridges and intersections between high culture, pulp and avant-garde," it's brilliant: full of oddball observations and provocative swatches of knowledge. Surprising, flattering, and fun to see that the webseries my wife and I helped make now has its own entry in the wiki, where it's compared to the work of Roger Corman and Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Art and Popular Culture is the brain-and-lovechild of the excellent Jan Geerinck, who blogs here, and who evidently sees connections everywhere. Read more about Jan and Jahsonic here.

Since I'm in a bragging mood, I'll also mention that our webseries recently received its first review -- from a very sharp horror site called Infernal Dreams, where it was covered alongside "Sorority Sluts" and "Redneck Zombies." That's the right neighborhood for us! Eight stars out of ten, and let me quote a few passages from the review: "An enjoyable series which speaks to the Sci-Fi fan, the technology fan, and the 'sex' fan ... The sharp-witted humor really drives the series forward and gives it that special 'signature.' What the creators have done with the series is that they have made sex fun again." I can now report that it feels really, really good when a critic gets what you've tried to do.

Shoot me a note at michaelblowhard@gmail.etc and I'll send you a link to the webseries' website.
