  1. 50 years ago this month, after Peter Green had left the band, the remaining members of Fleetwood Mac moved into this home in Alton and recorded the album Kiln House, with cover art by the bassists's wife and future band member Christine Perfect McVie.
  2. Can't believe nobody has beaten me to this one, though the film has been mentioned here. He's the character everyone talks about but is only on screen once. And memorably. Edit: woops! Well more than once but this is his first appearance (if I recall, and my memory is obviously failing me) Can't find his full second scene but here is his bon mot and exit.
  3. I must have misunderstood the point of the documentary because I thought it was a collection of crackpot interpretations of The Shining, none to be taken seriously. I always enjoy the movie when I see it, but it never made any sense to me, and I'm not sure it was ever really meant to.
  4. My new favorite guitar player, Alexandra Whittingham , a classical player, here playing a popular favorite. https://youtu.be/M2NIfqE4H1o
  5. I found this little article interesting, though it's more an explainer on semi-automatics. https://www.wearethemighty.com/entertainment/how-hollywood-gunfire-looks-real Then there's this, which is helpful in getting specifics on the gun models used in certain movies and TV shows. Lots of entries on Bonanza. http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Main_Page And my favorite source for general reference, Cracked magazine. https://www.cracked.com/personal-experiences-2532-i-teach-famous-actors-to-shoot-guns-and-hopefully-not-die.html You should study up and write a definitive history yourself.
  6. Didn't dig it. It had some nice imagery but I was really looking forward to a more fetching young Joan Bennett. Good sound for the times. I wouldn't have guessed it was a 20s piece.
  7. I did see a post from mid October where he said his PC tower was making an odd noise and that if it crashed he may be off for a few days. Maybe it crashed and he decided he liked not being tied to the pc all the time.
  8. I'm reading through his posts now, hearing Bogart's voice as I enjoy his wit and insights. He would occasionally discuss his past and decribe his experiences as they related to whatever topic he was addressing. Like most here, I've always found him interesting, entertaining and informative. I PMd with him on occasion and was often tempted to ask more specific questions about his life and times, but didn't want to seem presumptuous. Until we know differently, I'm assuming he's met a lovely young senorita and now has far more constructive things to do with his time. Till we meet again, old friend!
  9. I'd forgotten his singing but I just read he guest hosted for Johnny 58 times, and was a relative of Adlai Stevenson.
  10. Starting in a few minutes on Antenna TV. McLean Stevenson and Eddie Murphy, recorded January 1,1982.
  11. Oh well. Havent posted a video on the new boards. Anyway, yeah, Bedtime for Sniffles. Great cartoon.
  12. Good points, Liam, about the ages of the two leads. I suppose I could have worded my objection more carefully about Barbara and Robert looking past their prime and tired, respectively. Barbara's character was supposed to be thought of as a straying wife, at least in her husband's jealous eye. Of course she wasn't but I would have chosen a younger leading lady to give some credibility to the idea. As for Taylor, well, I guess I'm just not a big fan of his acting.
