Animal prints

Not just stuff for animals, either


Jenny Coon Peterson
Once a year, I give my two cats catnip. Charlie, the smarter of the two, gives it a bit of a sniff and then goes on about his business.

Miss Minoes

Purr-fect family entertainment.


Rod Lott
One of the most enjoyable family films of the moment is actually 11 years old: Miss Minoes, a Dutch fantasy based on a children's book. I haven't read it, but from the looks of it, I'm betting the movie retains much of its whimsy.

Perry Mason Mysteries: The Original Warner Bros. Movies Collection

I was underwhelmed, your honor.


Rod Lott
I should have listened to Ron Backer. In his new book, Mystery Movie Series of 1930s Hollywood, he more or less warns would-be audiences away from trying any of the early 1930s’ half-dozen movies based on Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason character.

Zach Hale
Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way: The band is called The Hitt Boyz, whose latest release is an EP titled AlphaCat, and, yes, the artwork is kind of amazing.
