    Watch TCM Films not loading

    Yeah me too, I'd seen it a few times before, but just had a hankering to rewatch. But that was the last WATCH TCM ON DEMAND movie that I have been able to see that I have wanted to see since Thursday night. TCM went kaplop (for me & Win 7 Pro & Firefox) last Tues-Wed., then everything worked again for Thurs (Valentines Day), and Friday practically eveything refused to load again (just like in your OP). All except 16 movies which I had already seen numerous times, and half of those (that haven't yet expired) have also stopped loading now. Nothing "new" added since last Friday on will load, and so No WATCH TCM (except live streams) since last Friday. I am paying for nothing. And TCM doesn't give a rats Azz. So I am afraid I am cutting TCM out of the cable tier that I pay for (since I'm not getting it anyway) and going down to basic by next TVSP bill day. It has to be a Win 7/Firefox glitch at the TCM end, since no one else except those of us that haven't gone over to Win 10, are being screwed by this. And since there are still a diminishing handful of "playable movies left, and the Live stream still works, I know that it isn't an adobe Flash conflict, or really even a total Win 7 conflict. I've changed nothing before or since this happened at my end, so it's just TCM behaving very badly again. But this time I have really reached my limit and the only power i have is to stop paying to be an unserviced TCM subscriber. Anyway, good for you, for now. But beware as the past "norm" had been for TCM to mostly screw the various app and alternate device users, now it appears to just be us old-timers still using a PC with something older than Win 10. So adios amigo. And don't take any wooden nickels.

    MUSIC THAT INFLUENCED "ME" GROWING-UP

    Great remembrance story Swithin. And the narration and vintage photos reminded me of something right out of a PBS documentary. That song is a classic and I've never heard it sung just like this before. Very sweet, almost like an homage to a bygone era. Thank you, and please share again.
  3. Thanks again Mike, I'm all for Open Source Everything (Down with DRM, Up with Open Source). Yes, even good ole Firefox uses some of the "good" stuff from Google... I'll take the good stuff, I just don't want to be strapped by their lousy telemetry spyware anymore than Microsoft's. Firefox and Linux has stripped that crap out. I think I told you about back when I still occasionally used Google Chrome for troubleshooting. What happened is Googles persistent spyware wouldn't stay contained in the Google browser, it escaped and infected every other browser on my PC. It was a real hassle finally getting rid of it. Same'O when MS covertly started loading their Win 10 OS on my machine. I read up that they were were doing it to others and after I learned where the "hidden" MS files were located I was shocked to find that they were doing the same damn thing to me. Another pain getting all that crap outa my machine and blocking all of the so called "security" updates that allowed them to do it again. And that was just the tip of the ice berg. After that No more trust in either Google or Microsoft. I remember back in the day when "Just Google it" was synonymous to doing a web search. I stopped saying that a few years ago, Now I say "Just DuckDuckGo it."

    Andy Williams and Roger Miller - (In The Summertime) You Don't Want My Love (1960) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRuzBp7eIP8 Thanks Princess, I remember the song, but not much about the history around it, so I just checked it out. In 1960 the song, written & performed by Roger Miller, was also recorded by Andy Williams, and The Chordettes, Skeeter Davis, and Teresa Brewer in 1961. But the lasting impact was not held by either Miller, nor any of the female artists, but as you said it was good old Andy ("Moon River") Williams. BTW, I fell in love with "Moon River" off the radio, long before I ever saw Breakfast at Tiffany's. It was another song that I liked so much that I memorized.

    Ha ha, I remember that one, thank you so much. A year or so later these songs came out and for some reason I kinda have them all jumbled together with the Rooftop Singers (in an appealing way). They were so catchy that I even memorized the lyrics to King of the Road and Flowers On the Wall. Roger Miller - King of the Road - With Lyrics! (1965) Roger Miller "Dang Me" (1964) Roger Miller - England Swings (1965) The Statler Brothers - Flowers On The Wall 1966 (Country Music Greats) Daddy Sang Bass By The Statler Brothers

    Too funny Nipper, These Perry Como songs were often on the radio when I was a kid. (I ended up memorizing the lyrics of the last two). Perry Como - Catch a Falling Star (Audio) Perry Como - And I Love You So (Lyrics) Perry Como "It's Impossible"

    Great string of nostalgia there CJ. I fondly remember each as if it were yesterday, thanks Imagine, almost sixty years ago, two little kids, one on the west coast, and 2,500 miles away, another over on the east coast, and they may have been listening to the exact same music at the same time. Probably both humming, whistling or singing the same tunes, with their little transister radios held up to their ears. I do believe that music can create a bond of "sameness" that transcends all distances and boundaries.
