  1. During the college years, I had a kitty who was trained to "play" the piano.

    I was a music major, and had to practice for juries. I would hold out a treat

    and he would walk up and down the keys.


    After a while, he would "play" on request without a treat.


    He loved the bass keys the best. When the top was up,

    and he was afraid of something, he would jump on the

    bass keys and try to make as much noise as he could.

    His name was Max.

  2. Some of the same happened here in Houston, too.

    Out with the old, in with something a cash-conscious man with a suit

    has decided on his long weekend by the beach.

    There are only two of the old theaters left - one is a bookstore, and one is about to be demolished. The building housing my high school theater haunt is now

    a Kinko's.

  3. I don't want a talking head at TCM just to solve a perceived "diversity" issue.


    I think TCM should hire someone knowledgeable of the subject matter.

    If someone is hired who is knowledgeable and also is acceptable to

    the perceived and previously mentioned diversity issue, I have no

    squawks. And I don't hesitate to squawk.


    But it's also time to move "Into the Pink" and get a female perspective

    on the classics.

  4. Osborne has spoiled us all. He sticks to the positive. I enjoy his preview and

    post-screened comments.


    I just don't sense Maltin is that optimistic. He appears ever-at-the-ready to snipe at will. It seems from thread comments that Osborne does his homework, and Maltin has it done for him. But I have no idea what really occurs behind the screens at the TCM studios.


    Janet Maslin or Liz Smith might could do a guest appearance

    with Mr. Osborne just to test the cinematic tide, but a female

    co-presenter is the next logical step.


    Carrie Fisher's upcoming stint bodes well.
