Is it in fact unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins, is it better to burn out or fade away?

lt's not particularly silly, is it? I mean, the right side of the blog isn't silly at all and the left side merely does a forward aerial half turn every alternate post. But I think that with Government backing I could make it very silly.
Hey, it's worth a shot. Isn't it? Worth a shot?
What's to tell, really? I'm a sarcastic Fat Guy with little concern for the feelings of others if it would sacrifice my amusement. I spent most of my life in and around Milwaukee, WI, including my formative years. Went to college in Texas, then moved back north for 15 years before the wife and I packed up our lives to try a new start in Tampa, FL, land of the oversized insects and mutant frogs.
Now we've moved to Ohio, wish us luck! It may not be 'home', but so much closer to the real thing. Is that a hill?

I have received none. Zilch. Bupkus. Not a sausage. But not without trying.
So please, if you'd like to pay me to heartily endorse your product and/or service, just let me know, because I could use the money.
Or a Cadillac. A Cadillac would be nice.
Some of you may have figured out I'm a bit of a film nerd. Some of you may recall that I keep a list of the films I've seen, which currently numbers well over 700 (and I keep finding films I forgot about seeing until they cross my path again....) It suggests that I've seen a new movie every 2.5 weeks since birth. An impressive waste of good time, and that doesn't count the films I've watched ten times over or more, like most of the James Bond oeuvre, 'Mad Max', any Eastwood western or Dirty Harry film, and 'The 39 Steps'. It's a wonder I get any sleep at all.
However, this is my list o' shame, films that I want to see, or probably should see, lest I be called out on my total lack of film nerdiness. I've seen bits and pieces of a few of these, but never start-to-finish. And that's just sad. Worse, even if any of these show up on IFC or AMC, I'll be forced to sit through commercials and that's not happening, kids. Even the ol' DVR can't get me past those breaks in continuity.
