  • Disney+ in the House

    I signed on for the big Disney package on day one, which is Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN. Then after a brief once over as I downloaded and set-up each service on my Roku, I ignored them. I don’t know that I’ll watch much ESPN, being as the only sport I follow is NFL Football and […]

  • Friday Film Day

    The lovely and talented Lady Ronn is taking a video class this semester and has given me permission to share with you, her first two projects from class. Now, I will simply preface this presentation by saying that outside of capturing some home movies on our Super8 camcorder back in the day and some phone […]

  • Prime Video Finds

    After another evening of watching Poledark with the lovely Lady Ronn, I was scrolling through Amazon Prime Video and came across something that I didn’t know existed. A documentary about the art of Dungeons & Dragons back in the old TSR days. I immediately started watching it, which probably was not appreciated by everyone in […]

  • Live Action D&D Cartoon

    In September of 1983 I was very excited about the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon. It took all of one episode for me to recognize that it was not realizing my vision for a saturday morning cartoon based on my favorite game. I was disappointed and didn’t much care for the cartoon. But through the lense […]

  • Grandma Betty

    I am very fortunate to have made it to 50-years-old and still had a living grandparent. But, sadly, my last grandparent has passed on. My mother let me know she had gone to the hospital on Thursday; on Friday morning she gave us the bad news. Grandma Betty had passed in the earliest hours of […]

  • Goodbye to the Bandit

    I was saddened to hear that Burt Reynolds has died today. He was 82 and that seems young to me. He was one of my heroes. Smokey and the Bandit is one of those movies I can watch every time it’s on. It may be my favorite movie. The man was a legend and it’s […]

  • Three Films

    Hey, I watched some movies and I want to tell you about them. None of these three movies made me happy that I watched them. Logan came closest, but that was more from a sense of being in the loop with regard to superhero movies and the end of an era. I think I would […]

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Google Play offered me a $1.99 rental and this weekend the wife and I watched the latest spider-man movie. I was a little surprised, after all the talk about it being “the greatest superhero movie of all time, ever. So good. Great, really.” Or whatever it is that Trump had to say about it. I […]

  • Multiple Universes

    It’s time for another round of movie reviews. I remind you that I, mostly, don’t enjoy watching movies or television. There are just things I’d rather be doing. With that prejudice explicitly stated, let’s move forward and talk about some movies. I watched all three of these on my couch, as I rarely make it […]

  • Illuminated Headboard 2

    Because I know it’s not enough to just see some pictures of my latest project, you want to see it in action and hear me talking about it. And since I always try to make my audience happy, here’s a little arohenTV action, minus some of the frills. Roll video.

  • Happy Independence Day

    Grand Rapids did their fireworks on Saturday, July 2nd, and we were right on the water behind DeVos Place… where we were not supposed to be, I might add. I had the idea that if we parked north of the city and watched the show from Riverside Park, Canal Park, or 6th Street Bridge Park […]

  • Goodbye Chuck

    Chuck Berry in 1958 One of my favorite songs When Heidi bought me my guitar, way back in 1988-89, this was the song she said would let her know I had learned to play. I never even came close.
