    Basically everything to do with classic film and film trivia, reading, painting, listening to records, and bicycling. I even dream in black and white, xD!
  1. I seriously think that the TCM programmers take suggestions from these message boards. I'm super excited that Rex Ingram gets a day this year, since I (as well as a few others) have been putting him on our dream SUTS lists since...forever. And yes, I also miss the caricatures from last year, as well as the silhouettes from 2013. Those were the best.
  2. Dracula Dies: Christopher Lee has Passed Away

    I found his performance as Rasputin to be one of the better ones, and vastly underrated.
  3. Dracula Dies: Christopher Lee has Passed Away

    Oh man, and just when there was a little reprieve in terms of losing people. I really admired the way that he just kept on working right up until the end, and what a down-to-earth person he was in real life. I can't recall anyone saying bad that has about him. He never really scared me though; I thought he was rather good-looking, and I wondered how he would have fared if he weren't so closely associated with horror films. He definitely had the chops and sensitivity to pull off different roles. I'm going to miss him.
  4. Thanks, Bogie! I have a lot of favorite performers who are underrated, so I love imagining that they actually would get a day.

  6. B.B. King (1925-2015)

    I'm feeling a bit numb right now. I'll never forget being a little girl, seeing this man on television and being fascinated that he named his guitar like I named my little plush friends. Then I saw him on "The Cosby Show", and I was hooked. He used his guitar like most people wished they could use their voices, and his singing had a level of depth that always rang true. He WAS the blues for so many of us, and I know he's going to be missed.
  7. Percy Sledge (1940-2015)

    You know, he never got royalties for "When A Man Loves A Woman", which is a shame. No one else had a wail like he did, and I was definitely saddened by this news. He always came across as really likable and humble, and was always happy to just be doing his thing in making great music. I think that he should have gotten more attention than he did, though. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/15/arts/music/percy-sledge-who-sang-when-a-man-loves-a-woman-dies-at-74.html?_r=0 What makes me even sadder is that this thread is not getting more attention. I posted a thread about Andrae Crouch a couple of months backs, and I think I was the only one who posted on it. It's still on here somewhere. Thanks for posting this up here, Jakeem, as always.
  8. Stan Freberg (1926-2015)

    I recommend that everyone give the entire record a listen at some point; it's hilarious.
  9. Stan Freberg (1926-2015)

    Oh no! This man was a legend; one of the last voice actors from Hollywood's Golden Age. I was first introduced to him as the "Beaver" from various Disney films and shorts. I loved the way that he used a medium that he wasn't too fond of (to put it lightly) as a way to satirize popular culture. And his sense of humor/delivery style was second to none. He woke up the inner snark in all of us, and the great thing about it is that one couldn't really dispute his criticisms. He will definitely be missed. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/08/arts/stan-freberg-88-madcap-adman-and-satirist-dies-at-88.html?_r=0 (We should play Six Degrees with Harry Belafonte; everyone had/has some sort of connection to this man.)
  10. I knew I forgot something. 15.) The garden swing, the mechanical horse, and the Genie's bottle from "The Thief of Bagdad"
  11. Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83

    Here's an article that I found a while ago about the impact that Leonard Nimoy had on viewers. It seems like the perfect time to share it. https://www.blastr.com/2013-3-12/read-leonard-nimoys-touching-68-letter-troubled-teen-trek-fan LLAP, indeed. ????
  12. Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83

    He had an awesome voice, too, one that was instantly recognizable.
  13. Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83

    I loved him on "The Simpsons." One of the things I loved about the reboot was the way that the cast reached out to the original Enterprise members for input on the film, characterizations, etc.

    Well, he did say that it was better to be typecast than not to be cast at all; that there was something of Spock in all of the roles he played afterward, whether he intended it to be that way or not. And eventually, he embraced it, although it was a source of frustration for him. But I do think that the casting directors and the producers so closely associated him with the character that it made finding roles somewhat difficult, which he also spoke about.
  15. Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83

    I remember him in a small role on "Bonanza", in the episode where Hoss befriends a not-so-gentle gnat in the hopes of showing the town that he's just a normal person. He (Leonard Nimoy) played one of the antagonists. Even though he did get typecast as Spock, his characterization of that lovable Vulcan is one of the most beloved in popular culture. He captured the way that we all feel at some point, lonely, trying to understand the world, different, and it resonated with us deeply. He was always a welcoming and friendly with his fans, as well. I'm definitely going to miss him.
