Thirty-seven years ago, a young comedian named Bill Murray debuted on the second season of the TV show “Saturday Night Live” to replace original cast member Chevy Chase. Three short years later and with an Emmy Award clutched in his hand, the 30-year-old Murray followed Chase’s lead and also departed “SNL” for the big-screen. As quickly as Murray had succeeded in television, his success in movies was even more staggering by comparison. Less than five years after making his transition from award-winning TV to a film career, he landed a trio of iconic ‘80s comedies that people can still quote Murray’s money lines from: “Caddyshack” (1980), “Stripes” (1981) and “Ghostbusters” (1984). Bill Murray showed us how the world of comedy worked and made it look effortless.
That faint noise you hear is the sound of pint-sized spooks, banshees, and vampires gathering on your lawn. They will soon be knocking at the door plastic pumpkins outstretched. Spare yourself the tricks and go ahead and give up the treats - the unhealthy, sweet, nougat-filled goodies in your cupboard.
I never used a Ouija board as a kid, but I gather the thrill of the experience corresponds with the fun gleaned from reciting “Bloody Mary” in front of a mirror three times. It's the fear struck from anticipation from what could happen, from the simple potential that there is something beyond the ethereal plane a person can summon with little thought put behind it.
Arizona is well known for its Western heritage but it can be easy to get lost in suburbia and urban life as we go about our day-to-day routines. Sometimes it can be rewarding to put on your boots, let your hair down, and kick back. But don’t take my word for it. Check out these five family-friendly places where you and your kin can experience the Old West and get in touch with Arizona’s wild West side.
I was in the hardware store when I first heard the news, though I did not know what I was hearing. As the cashier tallied my purchase, I overheard a reporter on the store’s radio make the peculiar announcement that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. At the time, I thought of it as little more than a curiosity. How wrong I was.

There’s nothing like the wind-in-your-hair feeling of the open road. Interestingly, our state boasts the longest contiguous stretches of one of the most storied highways in America — Route 66, also known as The Mother Road. The route — which opened in 1926 and originally ran from Chicago to Santa Monica, Calif. — was a key thoroughfare for families migrating west during the Dust Bowl years of the 1930s. It soon came to symbolize freedom and opportunity and still remains one of the most recognizable symbols of Americana around the world.
I’ve said it before, there’s nothing cooler than apes in comics. Comic book publishers know it, readers know it, and even Hollywood has jumped on the ape bandwagon again (see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.) Since Edgar Rice Burroughs first planted poor baby Greystoke in the middle of the Mangani (great apes) tribe off the coast of Africa, spectacular simians have been a huge part of our pop culture heritage; and at the recent Phoenix Comicon I happened to come across one of the most awesome ape adventures of all.
Superstition Mountain Museum, at 4087 N. Apache Trail/State Route 88, is offering dads and their children, up to age 17, free admission on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15.
Early on I was afraid for this film – with every announcement of another character being added to the movie’s mix becoming another potentially convoluted dramatic layer – and sure enough, at 142 minutes, director Marc Webb has created a film that oozes superfluous storylines like a leaky web cartridge. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 still offers some spectacular action sequences, but its out-of-control narrative is far from being superior to the first film.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Zooey Deschanel is almost bubbling over with excitement: Her show "New Girl" is a hit, she just released a pop song with Prince, she's working on a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis, and now she's sitting in a Tommy Hilfiger store filled with racks of dresses she helped design.
An antique mirror is a portal to a dimension of demons and the deceased in Oculus, a new horror film that starts off as an original and inventive psychological thriller, but eventually decomposes into a run-of-the-mill spook story that is far from being the fairest of them all.
If it weren't for new people moving to Arizona, some counties actually would be losing population.

A good Cajun boil is hard to come by in this part of the country, but thanks to this locally owned Mesa eatery — which opened its doors in November 2013 — you can build a tasty boil just the way you like it. Pick your seafood (shrimp, crawfish, lobster or crab — flown in fresh every day), your sauce, and your spice level (beware the angry ghost). If that doesn’t fill you up, try the fried frog legs, gator nuggets, hush puppies, or Cajun gumbo, along with a glass of wine or cold beer.
