The Value of Ex

Posted by WebVee on May 4, 2016 in Archives Review

As Tom Robbins once said, “Even cowgirls get the blues.” Nobody, no matter how together they seem or how romantically perfect their lives may appear, is without problems. If Robbins’ book had been about the characters in The Value of Ex instead of an itinerant hitchhiker, it would have been called “even smart people have relationship drama,”

Posted by WebVee on July 12, 2015 in Archives Review

It’s possible to do a zombie comedy, but it surely isn’t easy. While films like Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland and Fido have pulled it off successfully, I had yet to see a web series come close; and then I saw Zomblogalypse. Some might find it implausible that there could be anything to laugh at during the fall of civilization. Believing what

By Jeff Siniawsky Groucho Marx was the greatest comedian ever!  Yes, there were Lenny Bruce, George Carlin and Richard Prior, who each belong on the Mount Rushmore of comedians and without whom there would not be modern comedy.  But, Groucho completely changed the nature of comedy.  The quickness of his wit, the intelligence of his

You Are Here

Posted by WebVee on July 12, 2015 in Archives

By Jeff Siniawsky A group of friends hangs out at a coffee shop.  Sounds like “Friends”, or at least what I know of Friends.  I only saw one episode of that show.  It was while I was on an airplane, and I was entirely unimpressed.  I did watch all 9 released episodes of J.
