Tweet Follow me Karen Black, the amazing and ubiquitous actress who was a 70s sex symbol, passed away after a long battle with cancer on Thursday. Karen Black was 74. Karen Black was in so many movies and television shows that it’s hard to think of what she wasn’t in over the years. There were the movies like Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Great Gatsby, Rhinoceros, The Day of the Locust, Nashville, Airport 1975, Dogtown, Mirror, Mirror, and Irene in Time . Then there were the television shows like...

Tweet Follow me My issue with what “Geek Culture” has become, today, is that it has little to do with science and space exploration and colonization, and too much do with mindless, selfish, fantasy. It used to be that we had a group of people who were interested in pop-culture’s expression of a tech future paced by space exploration and colonization. Some called us nerds, others geeks, and within that, some of us were Trekkers (Don’t you dare call us Trekkies!) All the better to get us off...

Tweet Follow me YouTube launched a concept called “YouTube Geek Week” on August 4th (my birthday) and running though August 10th.

Tweet Follow me Here’s why I will not join a YouTube Network for now: the one’s who’ve contact me, and it’s happened four times now, all have business models that involve me signing over my Google AdSense money to them. That is, the YouTube Network (and YouTube should be concerned that “YouTube Network” is the unofficial name because then YouTube gets painted by their bad practices) asks for a cut of your future payments from Google AdSense if you’re a YouTube Partner, as...

Tweet Follow me Taylor Swift, the famed country music star, says she only gets into relationships she can sing about. That may explain why she tends to pick out and establish relationships that are designed to fail: writing about them is how she’s gotten rich. It may be that, for a few years at least, Taylor Swift’s just not mentally capable of having a stable relationship. That is, unless she can change her way of thinking to want to write good things about them. Taylor Swift Should Date Me If Taylor...

Tweet Follow me Peter Capaldi is the new Doctor, the legendary timelord of the TV series Doctor Who. He’s also, at 55, white, and male, a risky selection made at a time when the Anglo-American entertainment electorate’s craving for an image that is reflective of the ever-diverse mainstream industrial society. In other words, a black or female Doctor would have been more welcome than Mr. Capaldi, and (believe it or not) less controversial. And in case you aren’t convinced of that, consider the...

Tweet Follow me George Duke passed away at 67, the same age as was Jim Kelly when he left us just about over a month ago. George Duke is what Zennie62 is all about: a man who left an indelible mark on American Pop Culture, and during my lifetime. George Duke was the composer of one of my favorite jazz creations: the 1978 songs called “Reach For It,” and “Dukey Stick.” Once you hear these tunes you’ll never forget them. They possessed a sound that was one part danceable, the other...

Tweet Follow me Legendary Pictures pulled out all of the stops to provide a great Godzilla 2014 teaser at Comic Con. And while it seems Legendary’s efforts were hampered by Warner Bros. (more about that later) what the company that’s owned an ran by Thomas Tull did was more than impressive: the Godzilla Encounter. The Godzilla Encounter at Comic Con is a kind of assembly of movie sets of the kind you might see in a Godzilla movie. Legendary Pictures staff and marketing consultants converted a warehouse...

Tweet Follow me DJ Khaled’s one of the World’s most successful music producers, but when it comes to marriage protocol, his approach needs a lot of work. Take Nicki Minaj Two days ago, DJ Khaled went on MTV to use video to send a marriage proposal to Nicki Minaj. As you can see in the Zennie62 on YouTube video, it just doesn’t look romantic at all. An ideal form of marriage proposal is to get down on one knee before the woman you’re making it to. And most important, you have to be there...
