Daily throughts from Paul Harris

Are We There Yet?

News of the first flight from NYC to Sydney — 20 hours nonstop — reminded me of when we went down under, and the lesson I learned about being in the air so long.

Movie Review: “El Camino”

My review of “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” in which Aaron Paul returns as Jesse Pinkman, desperately trying to stay free after escaping from Uncle Jack, Todd, and the rest of the Nazis killed by Walter White in the last episode of the series.

Another Weekend In Vegas

Fresh from another trip to Sin City, some observations about security theater, party girl dresses, and smoking at the pool — plus two good Italian restaurants I recommend.

Quick Response

After I complained to the airline about a problem with its updated app, not only did I get a response, but a resolution.

Undivided Loyalties

A former listener asks if my loyalties are at all divided between St. Louis and Washington in the NLCS. Here’s my answer.

As I Tweeted

Just saw a long commercial for a Dr. Doolittle remake with Robert Downey Jr. and what is probably a hundred million in CGI animals. I’m already planning on doing something (anything) else the night it screens. Feh!

Movie Review: “Gemini Man”

My review of a new movie in which Will Smith is forced to fight against a younger version of himself. It’s a mixture of action, sci-fi, and special effects wizardry, but is it worth your time? Read on.

Movie Review: “Lucy In The Sky”

If you enjoy it when I write a scathing review of a very bad movie, this is for you. It stars Natalie Portman and Jon Hamm, loosely based on the tabloid-ish story from a decade ago of a jealous astronaut losing her mind.

Letters From An Astrophysicist

My review of a new book by Neil deGrasse Tyson, currently America’s best explainer of all things scientific, in which he reprints correspondence he’s had with fans, haters, and others who simply want to know more.

Theater Review: “The Agitators”

My review of a terrific St. Louis production of a play about the decades-long friendship of two of the most famous Americans of the 19th century, Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, as they advocated to allow blacks and women to vote.

A Night At The Comedy Store

From my trip to LA last week, here’s what it’s like to watch comedian after comedian get up to do 15-minute sets in one of the most esteemed comedy clubs in the country.

The Show Won’t Go On

Here’s my full review of a new book by Jeff Abraham and Burt Kearns, subtitled “The Most Shocking, Bizarre, and Historic Deaths Of Performers Onstage.” If I still had a radio show, I’d do an hour with them.
