Just thought I’d highlight this. I hadn’t written anything for the Daily News in a while. Then I saw this small story about an animated Indiana Jones adventure.

Just wanted to note I’ve done a little updating to the videos page. Swapped out some older ones, added in some newer ones.

‘For the Love of Movies’ podcast: ‘Masters of the Universe’

So, I started a podcast at work. I do it with my video producer, Frank Posillico.

In this episode, we delve into ‘Master of the Universe’, the 1987 ‘classic’ based upon the He-Man toy line.
