I can't give details, and I won't divulge my age.
It simply is just this:
I owe it all to my Mum.
I have been blessed with the oldest parents in the burbs
which enriched me greatly being exposed since the beginning of their favorites
and what was hip in the genres of their time. Being exposed to films since I was
3 years old in the drive-ins (wow-remember those?-breifly)
and constantly being told who is who and what I should watch. I was probably
the only kid in elementary school that was aware of actors and actresses like
Bette Davis, Cary Grant yadda yadda and Dana Winters even.
Thanks to her I progressed in my interests and even scare her now when
I talk about the movies of the 20s and 30s and the silent films.
She thinks I am way to young I think?or just thinks I am crazy for my age
Thanks to TCM I can fortify consistantly out here in the wild Northwest my need for my fix.
No stages here, just one long progressive wonder
I have embraced this and made it my own.
