  • The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

    The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

    Old Ain’t Dead just me, watching whatever looks good. To me. I don’t watch everything. I don’t have a “best of 2015” list because I don’t have a clue as to what most of 2015 had to offer, much less what the best of all that would be. Yet here we are, at the end […]

  • Transparent and Epigenetics

    Transparent and Epigenetics

    Ali Pfefferman’s (Gaby Hoffmann) discovery of epigenetics in season 2 of Transparent hooked me. In fact, I thought the idea that stress and trauma from generations before yours could be passed through the generations was the most interesting thing in season 2 of Transparent. It certainly would do a lot to explain why the Pfefferman […]

    Kerry Washington at GLAAD Gives Best Acceptance Speech Ever!

    Kerry Washington received a Vanguard Award at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards ceremony over the weekend. She gave a powerful speech that tells the truth in eloquent and inspiring terms. Everyone should memorize this speech and repeat it to everyone they know. I’m working on that very thing by playing it over and over. Other […]

    Review: Transparent

    Transparent was fascinating and compelling. I watched it all the first weekend it was out on Amazon Prime. It’s a coming out story for the character brilliantly played by Jeffrey Tambor. I’ll try to review it without giving away too many surprises that can’t be gleaned from simply watching the trailer. The review has some […]
