Serving the Curmudgeons of Tucson and Southern Arizona

Vol. 5 No. 1
January 26, 1999

Philip June,

Doctor of Curmudgeonry, announces an update to his personal website. This will be incarnation number four for this site. Gone are the animated gifs (well at least most of them), and the frames.

This website is best viewed with a monitor resolution of 1024 x 768, using Netscape Navigator.

"Siskel and Ebert are a bit snooty in their reviews, but I have a proletariat view of movies that I think the average movie goer will appreciate." Current reviews follow.
