Happy 20th Blake & Duke

It’s December 3rd, 2013.   That means that 20 years ago, it was December 3rd, 1993.   What is the big deal with that?  Well, a company I worked for released two new games on that date.  “Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold”, and “Duke Nukem II”.   That’s right, Apogee (my Apogee, not the current one – from […]

At the Movies History: Siskel, Ebert, and the Rest

UPDATE Oct 2, 2013: Another small update to the page covering Richard Roeper’s assignment to the late Roger Ebert’s spot at the Chicago Sun Times.  That’s at the bottom, and brings things up to current again, as far as I’m aware.
