John Barry

John Barry has passed away at 77.
I don't think the James Bond films would have been as succesful without the fantastic music of John Barry.
Thankyou John, rest in peace.

Shat My Shat Says

You know it’s not that this show is a total flop but it is bad, Shat is doing his best with the crap scripts they give him but last night it looked like he was reading off idiot cards (i’m thinking they had some late script changes and Shat didn’t have time to learn the new lines or he’s given up on the show already). You do see Shat looking at the camera more and giving us the “I know it’s shit but i’m getting paid” look.
They keep "Tweeking" the show, had the older son and wife move in (the actor playing the younger son is so laid back he fades into the background in every scene he's in even when Shatner isn't there), they've got Shat's character a love interest now. It all seems so desperate.
I don't see this series coming back unless CBS thinks they can fix it (probably a mass re-tooling of the series, ditvhing the younger son, getting Shat's character more out in the world and being less grumpy and the older son and wife and the new gf featured more.)

Sad Anniversary

We lost the crew of Challenger 51 L 25 years ago today. I can still remember looking southeast and seeing the debris cloud hanging in the air. Go in peace.

For a few years now Miss Mur has threatened er has wanted to get me a kilt and make me wear it.

And since i'm part Welsh it'd have to be a Welsh tartan and one from the Jones clan.

I'm not sure about this and i bet she'd want me to go "commando".
Women are cute but evil. :)

Guilty Pleasure?

I love the Duggar. No preaching or sniping about them having 19 kids or their faith, they take care of them all and the kids seem normal and well adjusted. They all seem to love each other, which is ok in my book.
I'm a big fan of the show and i think i've been watching since they only had 14 kids.
Cousin is a cutie. ;)

Ernest Borgnine

No he's still with us.
It's Ernie's 94th birthday.


Jack Lalanne

Jack has passed away at 96, i thought he'd live forever. I remember as a kid his exercise show, where he never had to yell at you to lose weight but to encourage you to exercise and in a positive way. Thank you Jack for being a class act and a good person.

I guess after that last post i'm looking a bit like a luddite but maybe i am. I'm not against technology but technology with a purpose or a reason for me to use it.

I don't like 3-D
I have never used anything made from Apple
I don't have a cell phone
I think Blu-ray is crap
I think 3-D tvs are a waste of good money
I don't have a digital flat screen tv
I hate e-books

I love my vinyl records
I love my land line telephone
I love my DVDs
I love pencil,pen and paper
I love my pocket watch
I love real books
I love black & white movies

I'm set in my dragony ways.

3 D Scam

Yes, Hollywood is scamming you all with this latest 3-D crap they're forcing on the movir public. It's no different than the 3-D tech of the 1950's and it's not even real 3-D. Most of us "see" movies already in 3-D because of our eyes and brain works and with the skill of good camermen the create a 3-D world that's lost when you add the 3-D crap, which has always come down to people throwing things at the camera (ooooh wow so exciting). So Hollywood as always beats a minor trend to death by making everything (well actually only a few films are made with the 3-D tech most are just transferred to 3-D from the original "Flat" source) and you have the pleasure of paying much more to "see" their crappy movies while getting axe to the head size headaches.
Even if i could get out to see more movies (agoraphobia really keeps you from doing normal stuff) i wouldn't go to 3-D because i can't see the magical effect on phoney 3-D because i have myopia aka nearsightness and one eye see's things differently than the other, this causes headaches and nausea for me.
Latest figures on box office sales shows the overload of 3-D movies is hurting the film business.
It's funny that the best 3-D movie ever made "House Of Wax" was made 60 years ago by a one-eyed director named Andre De Toth who couldn't even see the effect!

The Victim Of Hate

Christina Greene, 9 years old.
Murdered in Tuscon by a Hateful Individual who also killed a Federal Judge and others and wounded a U. S. Congresswoman.
People who murder children need to be put to death, no way should they ever see a future after they take an innocent child's future away.


Let's get nostalgic for days gone by, like when comic books were fun and not full of zombies and over the top violence, needless character "deaths", bad art and some really shoddy writing. Here is one of my favorite super-heroes or anti-hero, Metamorpho. These are two copies i bought as a kid and helped fuel a life long comic book collecting (until the recent trend in comics made me stop collecting).

I really dug those DC "Go-Go Checks", you could spot a DC right away.

Palin's Hit List

Today Congresswoman Giffords who is on Sarah Palin's hit list was shot (although i hear Sarah's handlers have taken this pic off line and Fox News is trying to spin it away from Palin and the Tea Party), She's still alive but a hear a Federal Judge appointed by George H. W. Bush was killed ( he too was a target from the hate mongers).
America will survive all you vile and hateful people and damn you all to hell.

Is there any historical fact that he existed outside of the Bible? And what about the other people religons are based on, did they really exist?
I suppose if you believe that someone is the Son,Messenger or even God you don't need fact but faith.
I've never doubted that any of them existed or really cared that much but some historical evidence would be nice to read.

Christmas Cactus

I know they're neither a cactus or have anything to do with Christmas but what the hey? right?
This is a yellow flowered one and it bloomed it's brain out this year.


I wake up feeling lousy and nope i did not celebrate the new year's with the fruit of the grape, just a nasty incident from last night ruined my mood even more and it's still hanging on and won't let go.
Good news for others on this new year (which is good and i'm happy for them) especially good news for my sweetie, she got the cover of her novel and it looks great. I'll post it when the book is released, which will be soon.

I hope only the best to you all and a great 2011 for you all.
