  1. Sorry folks, I'll leave now.

     

    I wish you wouldn't. This place has had a window opened and some (LOTS!) fresh air let in.

     

    Look around. Stay awhile.

     

    I think it'll be different from now on.

  2. Sorry, Snarfie, didn't get to your post 'till just now.

     

    Nicely sized -- but I want one 6 feet high, with my head put in place of Joan's.

     

    :)

     

    Yes, you can delete whichever you need to.

     

    Thanks again for all of the pics of my hunk boyfriend.

  3. Tully Marshall? My Tully Marshall, whom I first cottoned to in Ball Of Fire??

     

    How funny that you recognize him, jdb1. And welcome back!

     

    Still more funny -- all of the birthdays are of the 'type' that I like, a la Warren William or Basil Rathbone, tall, thin, Roman nose -- Arliss, Von Sydow and Marshall all.

  4. Birdy, sounds like you too are a neophyte.

     

    talkietime, can I assume that 'chasing playback' means that the Panasonic DMR-ES35V can

     

    --play DVDs, in addition to

     

    --record to DVDs from television,

     

    and

     

    --convert to DVDs from already taped VHS tapes.

     

    CNET did not give the ES35V as good a rating as the ES30V, but the ES30V is nowhere to be found.

     

    I can't find it in the writeup, but can VHS tapes also be played via this machine?

     

    Thank you.

  5. That was the one, thanks mongo!

     

    I remember a tall blonde coming into the asylum where Lou went by mistake, with a man ahead of her and telling Lou:

     

    --he's a pump, pump him; he's a pump, pump him.

     

    Lou: all right, I'll pump him.

     

    And the guy spits water into his face.

     

    They did the Niagara Falls sketch there too.

     

    Darn, I love vaudeville. :)

     

    Yes, Costello included a few folks from his movies in his television show. And who knows, they might have been in radio with him too.

  6. Yup, I mentioned them a long time ago somewhere on this site.

     

    Not sure if acrobatic tap is what they did, but whatever it was, it was amazing. I was always a big fan of Hines, Hines and Dad as a yout, and loved the dancing step where the dancer leaned forward, all the while dancing like mad.

     

    Amazing men.

  7. Funny thing, Arkadin, I am more about fine arts than I am science, but you are correct, there is VERY little room for experimentation in baking (cooking is more forgiving) when it comes to measurements or ingredients. I found that out the hard way!

     

    Here is my most recent acquisition, and with the caveat that I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, I find the book exactly to my liking: well written, lots of pictures (who in their right mind PRODUCES a dessert book without pictures???), and seemingly very clear instructions.

     

    Since I started this post with their site, I'll include their review of Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home To Yours:

    By the way, when you make any dessert, and this is just my opinion, you have to throw caution to the wind and go all out. A healthy dessert is bleech, again imo.

     

    Yes, the old Alton Brown (the FN has now forced him to dance like an organ grinder's monkey) and old Rachel Ray and old Paula Deen were some of my favorite shows.

     

    I also liked Justin Wilson (I gar-on-tee), Yan Can Cook, the Galloping Gourmet before he went healthy, Jacques Pepin without his daughter, and the Frugal Gourmet, Jeff Smith, before he was disgraced.

  8. Here are the top 10 choices of chowhound.com:

     

    1. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

    2. GoodFellas.

    3. Delicatessen.

    4. Pieces of April.

    5. Like Water for Chocolate.

    6. Pee-wee?s Big Adventure.

    7. Eat Drink Man Woman.

    8. Oldboy.

    9. Fried Green Tomatoes.

    10. My Dinner with Andre.

     

    I'm just curious as to what movie the guy with the axe in his head came from.

     

    Notice that there are no CLASSIC movies? What about Big Night? Fatso?

  9. Sigh, it's like talking in a vacuum.

     

    Yes, filmlover, isn't it just sometimes?

     

    There would be less meat left in this thread than a victim of the shark in Jaws.

     

    Excellent line, but those of us who hate post 1959 movies have been beaten down by those who respond to each and every posted comment and have finally convinced those of us with a brain to give up.

     

    Finally, you are quite correct. Even though I agreed that the Karen Black teevee movie was good, there is just one comment to this person:

     

    ---what part of Turner CLASSIC Movies don't you understand? There is enough crap on TCM without submerging oneself into the sewer of teevee movies. If this were to begin, can AMC be far behind?

     

    Also, you've had two requests to explain your comment. "Surely, with the limited topics TCM is facing..." but you haven't answered that yet.

     

    Yes, putzegirl5 (again, interesting name) please answer the question.

  10. Wow, I remember that one, thomasterryjr! That was the one where the little creature with the spear -- a stolen pagan idol of some kind? -- came to life and went after Karen, she of the spooky eyes, and killed her? Creeped me out big time.

     

    That and the episode of the Night Gallery, with my beloved Rod Serling, that starred Joan Crawford, who bought the eyes from a poor person in order to see for a night -- and that night happened to be when a blackout occurred! Waaay cool.

     

    By the way, putzegirl5 (interesting name), what did you mean by:

     

    Surely, with the limited topics TCM is facing.... ?

     

    Here? On its teevee channel? I'm curious.

  11. Yes, the plastic ink cartridges were the latest and greatest! They replaced having to fill the pen. Still, I remember the HUGE ink blots on my papers. Ugh.

     

    I Like Ike was the man when my mother brought me home and said: someday, this little baby is going to be a real noodge on a movie message board!

  12. Hmmm, tough one.

     

    Again, I'd have to go with Dick Powell -- Robert could creep me out at times. Due to his panache with the evil role I can't name right now, I'd be afraid of waking up to him holding a knife to my throat.

     

    Oh, and old enough to know better, young enough not to care.
