God in the Machine

Literally "God in the machine", Deus Ex Machina originally referred to Greek plays, where the "gods" would be lowered onto the stage with ropes in order to provide a quick resolution to the story. Today, Deus Ex Machina refers to any improbably and/or overly convenient character or mechanism that comes out of nowhere and saves the character(s).

New Format Announced!

The format of the new blog location will be: critical comments on popular culture. This includes film, theater, books, art, you name it.

Much closer to my areas of expertise and much nicer than yet another political rant blog, yes?

Stay tuned for an announcement of location, later today!

Oh, the suspense is killing me... I hope it lasts.
