Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another Friday night appearance on the Pat Walsh Show. This is from June 18th, 2021 and here we talk about a myriad of things including our drive-in movie theater memories. I also get a chance to talk to Pat about the new Pixar film “Luca” (an instant classic) and “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” (decidedly NOT classic). Also take a few phone calls and chat with Pat Walsh about other things. Enjoy and listen this Friday for another appearance on the Pat Walsh Show. Feel free to comment below or on my Facebook Page. Once again thanks to Pat Walsh, Mark “The Voice Guy” McKee, and the lovely and talented Kendall Tobe for letting me be a part of this wonderful show! So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Pixar’s latest film. It’s another winner; a charming animated fable called “Luca” and it has the hallmarks of another Pixar classic, combining elements of mythology with a charming Italian atmosphere, along with relatable characters, stunning animation and a story that will please both children and adults. Along with this year’s Oscar-winning “Soul” Pixar again shows that they are one of the most creative and talented studios in the animation business.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with my latest appearance on The Pat Walsh Show! During this appearance I chat with Pat about the terrific musical “In The Heights.” We find that we kind of disagree about certain musicals, especially what comprises a “classic.” (That’s what I get for debating such an old man. . .just kidding of course!). I give my top five favorite musicals (notice I didn’t say “best” of course, just my favorites.) I also get to do my best Les Miz impression (not very good but funny as hell for all the wrong reasons). I also get to take part in “Stuff We Couldn’t Get To” with Pat and the legendary Mark The Voice Guy. Enjoy the show and feel free to comment either below or on my Facebook page. As always big thanks to Pat Walsh, Mark “The Voice Guy” McKee, and the lovely and talented Kendall Tobe for allowing me to share this amazing experience. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a brief remembrance of noted character actor Ned Beatty, who died earlier this week at the age of 83, leaving behind a tremendous legacy of wonderful character performances. Of course after years on the stage he made one of the most memorable cinematic debuts in history as a rape victim in 1972’s “Deliverance.” He was also Oscar nominated for “Network” appeared in “All The President’s Men” and Robert Altman’s “Nashville.” He was also known as the clumsy Otis in the first two “Superman” films.
He also worked in television, appearing on dozens of shows, most notably “Rosanne” and “Homicide: Life On The Street.” He was also wonderful as the voice of Lotso, the cuddly teddy bear with a mean streak in the fantastic “Toy Story 3.” The entirety of his career cannot be accurately expressed here, either in quantity or quality, but below are some of his best performances both on TV and in film. He will be missed. So Sayeth The Kendog!Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog Here with a top five list of my favorite movie musicals in honor of the rousing film “In The Heights” just released today. Now notice I did not say “best musicals” which gives me a free pass in not including some of the classics of yesteryear. My choices normally revolve around my cinematic sensibilities, which are odd to say the least. As my father famously said, “sometimes you have to be just a half a bubble off to do this job” (of course he was talking about my desire to play the partially suicidal role of indoor soccer goalkeeper at the time, but the phrase still applies). So off we go with my very, very subjective list and you can feel free to disagree or agree with me in the comments below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!Continue reading
