‘Batman’s Yvonne Craig Has Passed Away

It is with a very sad and heavy heart that I pass along the news today that actress Yvonne Craig has passed away. Yvonne is best known for playing the role of Batgirl / Barbara Gordon on the 1966 TV series Batman and, to me, will always be remembered as the plucky superhero in the shimmery skintight purple and gold costume. As a very young child, I formed an attachment to the ’60s Batman series (in reruns, I’m not that old) because I really felt affection for the characters. Batman was my hero, Robin was someone that I wanted to hug/was in love with and Batgirl was someone I wanted to marry (like Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, she was the epitome of female perfection for me when I was a young child). Yvonne Craig has always held a special place in my heart and I am extremely saddened by her passing. More »

Former Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle Will Reportedly Plead Guilty To Child Pornography Charges

Remember back in early July when federal authorities raided the home of then-Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle in search of child pornography, a raid that took place a few months after an associate of Fogle‘s was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography? Well, today we learn that authorities found something … because Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to child pornography charges and is expected to accept a plea bargain deal in federal court tomorrow. To be honest, I didn’t expect that Fogle would get busted with any type of illegal pornography, particularly since his friend/associate was busted with child pornography months ago but clearly I was wrong.

Old Habits

Now that I’ve been in my home for a little over a week now, I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. It has been quite a long time since I’ve had the time to settle in and just play records so now that I have my music set up in my new home, I’ve been anxious to start playing records again. Additionally, I haven’t had time to just watch mindless TV so that’s pretty much all that I did yesterday. I’ve been in the mood to hear old Prince music so I dug out my copy of his classic ’90s album O(+> and gave it a spin … and immediately fell hopelessly in love with it all over again. More »
