TCM REMEMBERS 2008 ???


Recommended Posts

Greetings any and every one.

 

Haven't been by in a long long time.

Nice to see the website look has remained as the Northern Star.

 

Appy polly loggies if this matter has already been discussed, previously:

Was there no TCM Remembers ~ 2008?

 

Doesn't seem to be anything in the media area, so am wondering if the tradition ended in 2007 which would be a shame if the case.

 

Milady and I no longer have cable, for two years now, so we cannot viddy the great TCM montages, any longer :(

 

Nowadays, we just watch new dvd's and the 5000+ movies recorded from TCM, IFC, Sundance and AMC (from wayback when Clooney was host).

 

TCM programming - the only real loss from having no cable.

 

Anyway, could someone please advise that, indeed, there was no end-of-year, 'TCM Remembers' montage in 2008.

 

Thanks.

Wow, first MovieJoe returns and now SamTherapy!

 

Welcome home, Sam!

 

Hope all is well and that this means that even if you don't have TCM right now, you will still post here.

 

We've missed you, buddy.

 

My best to you and your lady.

TCM Remembers?????

I am more excited 'SamTherapy' Remembers.

 

Sorry to hear you're TCM-Free these days, old friend. But that's no reason for a two year absence.

 

If you are in a nostalgic mood, check out this "montage" created for TCM's 15th Anniversary this month - "15 Years In 90 Seconds"

http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/index.jsp?cid=236988

 

It's one the very best pieces TCM has ever created.

(But so is TCM Remembers 2008. Yes, they created one and it is definitely worth seeking out.)

 

In fact, many TCM creations are available for viewing at the TCM Anniversary site here -

http://www.tcm.com/redirects/link/?cid=236987

including "100 Years At The Movies" (Which was never before available on the TCM website),

 

Just let the page load completely and then use the dates at the bottom to see many of the different materials (video and print) from that year in TCM history.

 

Hoping you'll stop by once in awhile,

Kyle In Hollywood

Fantastic!

Thank you ever so much, HollywoodGolightly.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner to thank you.

A very nice end-of-year tribute to a long list of folks who will be missed.

I do miss the original, angel-in-the-heavens-with-the-tolling-bell openings, though.

Aloha, lz! ;-)

 

Thanks for the welcome back.

Sorry to you, also, for not getting back on sooner to thank you for the welcome-back.

 

Hope all is well with you and yours, too.

 

Checked out your home page: www.classiclasvegas.com - a very smartly designed site, first-rate art design.

Look forward to that Gallery. B-)

 

Don't know how you feel about The Meadows in this supposedly modern age, but I think that (along with 'The Happiest Place On Earth' these days), it's dead.

 

I much prefer the kitsch of the bygone days . . . as I knew it. ;-)

 

Ever since 1989, despite it being the brightest area on Earth as seen from space, I feel like Sin City has blacked out for me as a novel place to tour; although, when I was long-hauling in the nineties, I did stopover there one night, and the south-end of the Strip is rather a marvel to see from a distance. Also saw said marvel from the air once, flying in and out of McCarran.

 

Nevertheless, I do feel that Vegas' current excess ? is indeed "what the whole hep world would be doing Saturday nights if the Nazis had won the war."

 

Have you seen Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas?

I thought that the art director did a superb job of capturing the aesthetic feel of the town's (in my estimation) heyday.

 

"Let's get down to brass tacks. How much for the ape?"

Who knows, we might swing by sometime despite my criticisms.

 

Would like to see the Boulder Dam and the Atomic Testing Museum, and we have, for some time in fact, had a desire to check out the Amargosa Opera House in Death Valley Junction, ever since seeing an endearing documentary on it: http://www.amargosafilm.com

 

 

Maybe I should jet over in August to see Steely Dan at the Palm?

 

Anyway, wonderful to see you are still at it here. happy0144.gif

 

Catch ya, later.

Good hello, Kyle! wavey_new.gif

 

// Sorry to hear you're TCM-Free these days, old friend. But that's no reason for a two year absence.//

Point taken. I see, now, that is indeed the case.

Looks like I owe you a drink at the Formosa next time I'm way deep into nothing special, riding the crest of a wave breaking just west of Hollywood.

 

In fact, two drinks, maybe more, because those links you gave me were fantastic!

You're right about the '15/90' montage - very cool.

 

And the anniversary redirect is great!!!

A great design.

 

It was a treat to see Bob O's first intro.

Didn't know that '100 Years' was the very first thing to air.

 

Loved the 'Risque Business,' 'Separate Cinema,' 'Films From The Black List,' 'Warner Bros. 75yrs Anniversary' 'and 'Bowery Boys festival' promos.

 

The Bowery Boys festival was before I started getting TCM.

Wish they had reprised that frequency of airing those flicks.

 

Other airings that were before my access to TCM which I wished they had reprised were the documentaries 'Midnight Ramble,' 'Louise Brooks: Looking For Lulu' and 'The Race To Save 100 Years.' Never got to see those. sad0014.gif

 

Wonder, in which year did TCM start doing the 'TCM Remembers?'

 

The archived printed media was very nice, too.

I wish they would have shown all of the 'Now Showing' covers.

And, I wish they would make posters of the 'Who's Who Of Whodunit's' and the 'Cary Grant Film Festival' advertisements.

 

As for the 2008 programming that I missed . . .

A Val Lewton documentary and four Sinatra music specials?!?!?!

However, I cannot say I missed Elvis Mitchell's insinuative presence on TCM; in fact, I am glad I did.

I think he is a total sleeping_new.gif

His "interviews" on IFC were mediocre at best.

I do hope TCM is not even considering replacing Bob O with him when the former retires.

 

And speaking of other hosts, how's the BM coming along these days?

 

Well, again, my sincere thanks for the tip about the archives.

 

//Hoping you'll stop by once in awhile//

Thanks. Will do.
