  1. From that great creative duo, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. Who else could have could have come up with purple hair?
  2. Furnish your house with TCM! Alicia Malone bedroom sets! Eddie Muller dark dens! Ben Mankiewicz great room suites!
  3. You disparage without taking the merest effort to learn.
  4. Apropos of tonight's line-up (though it's not the original, Jimmy Smith's cover rules):
  5. From Dictionary.com: curate [ noun kyoor-it; verb kyoor-eyt, kyoo-reyt ] See synonyms for curate on Thesaurus.com 📓 High School Level noun 1. Chiefly British. a member of the clergy employed to assist a rector or vicar. 2. any ecclesiastic entrusted with the cure of souls, as a parish priest. verb (used with object), cu·rat·ed, cu·rat·ing. 1. to take charge of (a museum) or organize (an art exhibit):
  6. But, but, TCM does decide what you watch. It always has.
  7. They changed their name?
  8. I have kept my TV/Internet bill at a steady level, even with increases in service, for a long time. It requires once a year a tedious phone call or two to get a continuance of my rate.
  9. But you are now a 'legacy' customer. You can call and ask for a discount. You say you will have to look for another provider to find something more affordable. And who knows, maybe you will get a discount, or maybe you will find another provider.
  10. It occurred to me that what was happening might have been a buffering problem, if that is something that still happens. Thanks for the input, y'all.
  11. I changed channels away and back, and now it's all ok. So, I dunno.
  12. I am watching The Birds (1963) right now. The broadcast is jerky and I'm wondering about the cause. Does anyone with a different provider notice the same?
  13. There is a special place in my regard for anyone who resurrects one of my threads. Taking advantage of the opportunity: This, I think, from I See a Dark Stranger (1946), one of my favorite of her movies.
  14. The dog reference is a trope of newspaper-centered movies. "Dog-bites-man" is not news, but "Man-bites-dog" is.
  15. Aren't some things worth suffering for?
  16. Hot from the Antiques Roadshow front, a 1970 Triumph Spitfire: Like it's namesake, a British treasure.
  17. According to claims, TCM has been dying the slow death since at least 2003. I wish it would go ahead and die, already. The suspense is killing me.
  18. They fooled me! She looks nothing like the other women skaters, let alone Raquel Welch.
  19. The Song of Envy is sweet to hear. So much better when sung in chorus. But I have to say, KC Bomber (1972) is a profound disappointment. Though it's cheesy enough, and though I know they could not risk Raquel Welch in the skating, couldn't, with the budget they had, I say couldn't they have found a better wig for the stunt double? And couldn't they have found a woman to double for her? Can't say if I'll watch the whole movie, the cheese factor may not be able to overcome it.
  20. "Lowbrow"?! The voice of the Thunderbirds. Only Chick Hearn was better.
