  1. Hi Lawrence, Yes, but it won't be a regular thing. Last Fall I had an opportunity that I couldn't refuse, to get remotely off grid for at least six months. My contract was set to expire but the Pandemic had other plans for me. Now I can't leave even if I wanted to, so I'll be where I am for who knows how long. Internet access is distant and limited, so I decided I should make the most of it while I can. I have thought about you guys a lot, and wish you all well. I think the TCM crowd by nature is perhaps better suited to hunker down, so long as they have access to their favorite
  2. The Panic of Pandemics PBS NOVA- What We Know and Don’t Know about the Coronavirus (Aired: 03/09/2020) Clip: Season 47 | 5m 55s Here’s what you need to know about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, called COVID-19. https://www.pbs.org/video/what-we-know-and-dont-know-about-coronavirus-rqdtck/ PBS It's Okay to be Smart, Shorts- S8, part 6- What This Chart Actually Means for COVID-19 (3/18/2020) 7.35 min docu https://www.pbs.org/video/what-this-chart-actually-means-for-covid-19-ybsbtd/ PBS It's Okay to be Smart Shorts- S8, part 7- Why Soap Is Still Our Best Weapo
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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

  8. Okay, just so things don't get too stale, I'll mix them up a bit. YES! WE HAVE NO STEVE BANNON! ?????? - A Randy Rainbow Song Parody
  9. 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
  10. 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"
  11. 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.
  12. Missed one I just edited in (at the top of my last post above) enjoy

  17. Great, Thank you Sarge for introducing an interesting and very relevant subject (esp. for an "off-topic" movie website) And after reading the Wikipedia write up on the subject (since it is, after all, about video image juxtapositions) I present a series of non-textual illustrative adjuncts.

  18. Great aerial views of classic "Star" forts. The design offers an adequately manned fort to present overlapping fields of fire on each side. For their day and age, they were as close to impregnable as the word implies. Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sébastien_Le_Prestre_de_Vauban
  19. What a bleak future for humanity this portends. Let us hope that this thread, tiny and videocentric as it is, may offer one small candle to enlighten the darkness upon which we tread.

  21. I understand where you are coming from. And as a sole source of "information" I do agree with you. And I too dislike the embedded "ads" in several of the more lengthy YouTube video's. That said, however, I've discovered that once a video has been linked elsewhere, such as a thread in these boards, that any associated disruptive ad does not follow it. And too, anybody can say anything, which is why all things need to be fact checked from reputable sources. But as a "teaching" tool it is pretty difficult to beat video as it stimulates two of our most receptive senses (sight and sound). A
  22. Boy, I sure hope that TCM withdrawals won't require regular hits with Narcan. Especially since everybody here will say "I told you so," and nobody will come to visit me with candy and flowers. How sad it will be if it comes down to that, one PC just for the internet only with (god forbid) Windows 10 on board. No escaping it, evil controls all that we see and hear, and monitors everything that we do. And it's name is Microsoft, and its archangel is Google.
