Friday B-Movie Pick: Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters
It’s almost Halloween again, so we’re going with some of the classics. This 1984 classic is currently being remade. Personally, don’t think they will capture the spirit of the film, pun intended. Part of that spirit they will probably miss is the Libertarian theme to the movie, which the director admits was intentional.

Bonus films:
Innocent Blood
The Mummy

“They Just Don’t Want A Job” – The Fed’s Grotesque “Explanation” Why 94.6 Million Are Out Of The Labor Force, or why the current BLS U3 number of 4.9 is a farce. ¬†Here is a hint, it has to do with a record low workforce participation rate.

Monday Book Pick: Doc Savage: The Sinister Shadow

Doc Savage: The Sinister Shadow by Kenneth Robeson and Lester Dent

As my gentle readers may know, I’m a big pulp fan, especially of the Doc Savage novels. Most written by Lester Dent, under the house name of Kenneth Robeson. Will Murray proves himself as the modern master of the classic pulp with this mash up with Doc Savage and The Shadow. While I’m a huge Doc fan, I’ve read enough Shadow novels to do more than just hum the tune. Murray skillfully blends the styles of Walter Gibson and Lester Dent in this book. Stir in an over the top villain, who is completely and utterly ruthless, as an evil villain of the era should be, you have a story that Smith & Street would have proudly published.
