A new set! A new logo! A new opening video package! A new piece of entrance music! A new announcer! A new kind of in-ring interview! A New Era – for realsies. This is the 25th July edition of WWE Monday Night Raw…in about 4 minutes.
Raw was really good from the opening frame. Shinedown’s Enemies is a much better theme than Tonight Is the Night, the opening video package hit the ground running – even though there was a worryingly long shot of Braun Strowman – and the new Raw graphics straddle old and new remarkably well. I don’t even mind Triple H’s secret Illuminati code.
With the announcers now by the entrance ramp, WCW Nitro style, Raw’s two authority figures opened the show…and then were never seen again. »

When I was just a boy I had a paperback that included Dracula by Bram Stoker, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Lewis Stevenson in one volume. There were certain books I would reread every year, that was one. Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury every summer, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens every December and that three in one book every October. I read it so many times I knew how to parcel it out daily up until Halloween, starting the first page of Dracula on October 1st up to the last page of Jekyll And Hyde on October 30th. That reading was just to get in the mood for Halloween.

Welcome to HumanSide, the podcast that looks at the human side of pop culture. This episode offers an early peek at Chicago's own Music Box Theatre 70mm Film Festival, taking place February 19 to March 10. I also review a couple of surreal classics on Blu-ray from Scream Factory. Trust me, if you love weird movies, Sonny Boy and Blood and Lace deserve your attention. I also look at the Criterion Collection upgrade of one of my favorite noir films, Night and the City, by the great Jules Dassin. Lastly, HumanSide episode 2 offers an interview with director Heath Cozens about his often humorous but ultimately moving documentary Doglegs, which tells the story of disabled Japanese wrestlers grappling with able bodied opponents in a bid for societal and self-respect.You can listen to the...
