Ray Bradbury

I write about the passing of Ray Bradbury with a heavy heart. Good journalism usually begins with keeping a respectful distance from your subject, in an effort to stay objective and report faithfully; in discussing Mr. Bradbury and his work, I find that to be an impossible task. The very...

Richard Ayoade might not be too familiar to many people in the United States. Well, that’s unless you watch a lot of Adult Swim or like to get your British comedy from IFC. Well, you should get to know him and his work a little better. I’m honestly not too familiar with his...

With the exception of 2008’s Slumdog Millionaire, Alex Garland is pretty much the secondary reason why Danny Boyle’s filmography for the past decade kicked so much ass. The Beach, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later (Boyle directed the opening cabin sequence),  and the unbelievably...

I promise to try to keep this short and sweet. There has yet to be a musician as a person we admire. When trying to come up with someone I gravitated toward Dave Grohl. He has had such an amazing career, that I don’t think is anywhere near over. Just like most musicians his first few...

Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong are names that have become bigger than the duo themselves.  Household names for smoking it up and getting into crazy predicaments, not since Shaggy and Scooby have there been such trouble-making stoners (yeah, they were stoners, understand...

Taking a look at James Jean today, one of my favorite artists.  He has done the covers to Fables and the first issue of The Umbrella Academy.  He has done posters, prints, and advertisements.  He’s done covers to novels and all sorts of paintings.  God, he just does such amazing,...

This is probably going to be one of the shorter People We Admire’s, but it’s relevant.  Terrence “T.C.” Carson may not be a name known by too many people, but for video game and Star Wars fans, you’ve seen, or should I say heard his work before.  He’s had...

Samuel Leroy Jackson is a BAMF.  For example, his middle name is Leroy . Not enough? OK, Jackson has also been an extremely prolific actor and overtook Harrison Ford as the highest-grossing movie star of all time. He’s played a cocaine addict, a hitman, a sidekick to Bruce Willis, a...
