Pernell Roberts

Pernell Roberts the last surviving member of the original cast of Bonanza has passed away at 81.

He left Bonanza after his 6 year contract was up in 1965, went on to star in Trapper John and many tv guest shots.

That's of shot of Pernell in the Randolph Scott western "Ride Lonesome", a great western i'll need to watch again now.

Found this on's so odd and out of context, Mickey Mouse and a bug that looks like Mothra.
Some unknown Disney/Toho planned film? Giant Mickey goes to save Tokyo from Mosura?

Jay Lamo

Why does NBC think Jay Leno is funny?
Why does anyone find him funny?
I'd like to know.
Go away Jay, i'll watch Letterman as always.

Lord Peter Wimsey

I can't say what a pleasure it is reading the adventures again of Lord Peter Wimsey in a nice real BOOK.
You can't beat reading a book, holding it in your hands, turning the pages, getting totally absorbed into the story.
No e-book crap, no buttons,hard to read screen etc etc. Not all technology is good or needed.
Real books are the best technology for reading.

The Clockwork Dolls

If you're in the Baltimore area on Jan. 30, please check out my friend Helene's band. Really great music, you'll love them!

Cinema Vortex

I really haven't mentioned it but the fine family of The Ecelctic Banana Bunch Network has a new member blog.
The Cinema Vortex blog (a spin-off of my yahoogroups list which has been around since 2002 and deserves it's own place here on teh blogverse).

It's been listed on the E Banana Bunch Network widget for a month or so but now it's official.

If you like movies, maybe you'll like CV.

Olbermann Comment

Olbermann's comment on the hate and vileness from Rush Limbaugh and Pat Robetson on Haiti.

There is no way you can justify the crap these morons continue to spew as they profit on pain and misery of humans they look down on.

My phone lines were cut yesterday by the crew digging up the road for sewer lines, i don't know how many homes were out. I don't have a cell phone and being without internet sure makes you appreciate it more.
Now to catch up on the blogs!

The Future Of Television

Or as NBC wanted you to believe, the Jay Leno Show. Seems it wasn't, the ratings are beyond terrible and NBC affliates are threatening to abandon the show because of their falling 11:00 local News ratings.
I watched the show once and found Jay un-funny and the show amatuerish and clunky but many shows are like that when rushed into production with no real focus of what they wanted, Jay is best when he's a guest or behind a desk and letting others be funny, having him try to a Carol Burnett style variety/sketch show is way beyond his talent (and i'm only guessing this is what they wanted, NBC just wanted something cheap to make and not have to foot the bill for scripted tv shows).
I'm guessing the show has never found itself or gotten any better, the constant ads run on the local NBC station touting how FUNNY it is and how Jay is the "FUTURE" of tv turned me off on it.
So now it seems, if rumours are true that Jay will be shoved to a half hour at 11:35pm and Conan on the Tonight Show (another show who's ratings have tumbled and "love him or hate him" Letterman's have skyrocketed) will begin at 12:05am.
Both Jay and Conan are said to be resisting the move.
I have nothing against Jay but this whole thing has been a trainwreck since day 1 and he didn't deserve this but i'm guessing a raise will help. ;)

Kreativ Award

I want to thank Cal again for my first award. He has one of the best blogs online, go read now!
I shall pick 7 but really i think i could pick 20 more, so many good blogs out there.

1 - No Smoking In The Skullcave Becca has a great blog and one i enjoy a lot, i understand real life keeps her too busy to update this days. She's a great artist and she and her husband are some the best bloggers here (i'd give Electronic Cerebrectomy the award but Cal all ready did that!).

2 - Frog On The Pumpkin Wonderful blog, Halloween is every day there! They turn their home into an award winning haunted house every October.

3 - The Tainted Archive Gary Dobbs runs a fun and thought provoking blog and he loves Westerns (always a good thing if you ask me). Actor, author and more, a great chap and he's from Wales and been on Doctor Who!

4 - Life, Doctor Who & Combom The Best Doctor Who information blog online in my humble opinion! Every Whovian should be a follower.

5 - Diversions of the Groovy Kind The Keeper of Cool and great groovy history and scans of comics and magazines that i fondly remember.

6 - Retrospace One the best nostalgia and retro blogs i know of. Get your groove on and go Retro.

7 - Ranting and Raving Larry's blog of rants, he puts into words that i can't on many subjects that need a good rant, very personal blog and makes you think.

I'd like to mention Dino's Lounge, hope Keith can get back online soon and open the Lounge again.

Thanks again Cal!

Tumblr Fun

You never know what you'll find on Tumblr.

When Did I Move To Canada?

It's freezing here!
Since the weekend we've been dipping into the 30's at night and the 20's this morning and the rest of the week, i found ice in the bird baths.
And we could get snow this week!
Where did the Florida warmth go?
Al Gore where's your "Global Warming" now?

Monday, January 4, 2010


I lost a follower.
Down to 20.
I'm not sure if 20 (21) followers is a good average or a bad one for a blog that's around 9 months old.
I think i have the best bunch of followers here, sure we don't agree on everything but i treasure each and every one of you.

sad now.

Caturday with LOL cats from tumblr.Snagged from and Cal.

The New Doctor

After the typical RTD sentimental finish of the Tenth Doctor's series (and no there's nothing wrong with that, it's just Rusty and expected), i can't wait for the new Doctor and his episodes.

Seems 11 likes to yell "Geronimo!".
