Happy Doctor Who Day

Monday, November 23, 2015 10:00 am

Geek alert.

It’s Doctor Who‘s birthday. The TV show. You know how all you comic book fans with your Batman and your Deadpool and your Richie Rich…

Well, Doctor Who fans are just as bad. This is the anniversary of the first episode of the show, which aired November 23, 1963 in the UK. And most Doctor Who fans, particularly those in the US, didn’t watch it. But we don’t care. We’re fans. So, we want to wish The Doctor and Doctor Who a happy birthday.


[BBC]

A happy day. And it seems like only yesterday that we were mourning the loss of Clara.

It was 40 years ago today…

Saturday, October 31, 2015 10:51 am

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody was released 40 years ago today. I was a DJ at a small radio station in a small town in southeast Georgia. When the record came in, I listened to it. Queen wasn’t new. They had been around a few years, and had played some of their stuff. But, when I listened to Bohemian Rhapsody I thought “What the heck?…” Or something along that line. But, it wasn’t my call about adding it to the rotation. When it started making its way up the national charts, it was added to our rotation.

The general reaction was “What the heck?…” Or something along that line. Still, it kinda grew on everyone. After all, this was the mid 1970s.

If you like the song, you’ll like this old video, because it’s a funny tribute. If you hate the song, you’ll like this video, because, well… muppets.

The Force Awakens Trailer featuring Luke Skywalker

Thursday, October 29, 2015 9:00 am

I keep reading that Star Wars fans are getting their panties in a wad over Luke Skywalker not being in any of the trailers for The Force Awakens. Well, a whole bunch of somebodies have not been paying attention. Because, right there on The YouTube is a trailer, and I sure enough spotted Luke in it. You gotta look careful, though.


[The YouTube]

Maybe I will go see the movie after all. The current season of Doctor Who will be over by then, anyway.

The Force Awakens or Batman v Superman

Wednesday, October 28, 2015 9:00 am

So, which are you most excited about? The Force Awakens or Batman v Superman? Well, why not both?

Here’s the trailer for Batman v Superman with the audio for The Force Awakens


[The YouTube]

Me? I don’t know. Might see them both. Might see neither one. Might wait for them to come to home video and just watch them on the big screen color TV. For now, I’m going to keep watching stuff on the small screen like Doctor Who.

Which reminds me. Check out the Doctor Who LaB podcast at http://DoctorWhoLaB.com where romance author Larynn Ford and I review both new and classic episodes. You can subscribe to it on iTunes and listen to it while waiting in line to watch The Force Awakens. Or Batman v Superman. Or both.

Coming soon to a DVD near you. But not me.

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 9:00 am

One of the biggest money-making films of all time is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today. And I was wondering if I wanted to get it.

Jurassic World hits stores — and Amazon Instant Video — today. I haven’t seen the film. Apparently, from the box office numbers, I’m one of about a dozen people who haven’t seen it. So, before I shell out $20 for it, I wanted to find out if it’s any good. There’s a trailer out. An Honest one.


[The YouTube]

Still not sure they’re going to get my money. I could own Jurassic World or get four KFC Lunch Meals. I’m leaning toward the Colonel.

It’s no Bohemian Rhapsody, but…

Monday, October 19, 2015 9:00 am

A small clip of the Swedish Chef performing “Rapper’s Delight.” Yes, you read that right.


[The YouTube]

You’re welcome.

 

I know. You thought I was going to somehow find a way to plug the latest episode of Doctor Who LaB podcast, didn’t you? Well, there’s no connection. So I won’t.

You’ve nearly made it through the work week. Perhaps this will help you finish the week. Perhaps not.


[The YouTube]

If you’re in the mood for more Doctor Who, there’s the Doctor Who LaB podcast that I keep nagging you about. Larynn and I have a new episode up. We talk about a really really old serial from the early days of the show: An Unearthly Child (conclusion, episodes 2, 3, & 4). Find out why the TARDIS looks like it does, and learn how time travel can be like playing with fire.

Peggy Joseph 2014

Thursday, July 17, 2014 11:00 am

Remember Peggy Joseph? Sure you do.


[The YouTube]

Well, she’s using different words now.


[The YouTube]
Tip: The Other McCain

The question is not who “will she vote for in 2016?”, it’s “who will she vote for in 2014?”

I didn’t mind making fun of her in 2008, or in the years since. But she seems to be wising up. So, maybe there’s hope — real hope — after all.

But, if I stop making fun of Peggy Joseph, that doesn’t mean I’ll stop making fun of Barack Obama and others who still drink his Kool-Aid. None of us should.

Do you have a funny story of someone who was Peggy Joseph then and is still that way? Share it. We could all use a good laugh.

70 years ago

Friday, June 6, 2014 6:00 am


[Video: The YouTube. Transcript: U. S. Army]

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

— Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower

Silver Medals and Sweet Memories

Monday, May 26, 2014 6:00 am

Just something a little different for Memorial Day.


[The YouTube]

Just a picture on a table
Just some letters Mama saved
And a costume broach from England
On the back it has engraved:
To Eileen, I love you
London, 1943.
And she never heard from him again
And he never heard of me.

And the war still ain’t over for Mama
Every night in her dreams she still sees
The young face of someone who left her
Silver medals and sweet memories.

In Mama’s bedroom closet
To this day on her top shelf
There’s a flag folded three-cornered
Layin’ all by itself.
And the sergeant would surely be honored
To know how pretty she still is
And that after all these lonely years
His Eileen’s still his.

And the war still ain’t over for Mama
Every night in her dreams she still sees
The young face of someone who left her
Silver medals and sweet memories.

— Don Reid

Typical Doctor Who fans, um, enthusiasts

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 11:00 am

This is how some people imagine Doctor Who enthusiasts are.

It’s totally not true. We wouldn’t turn out the lights.

Doctor Who – The Pitch

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 11:00 am

Last year, I decided to watch all of the old Doctor Who episodes. Not the current series that began in 2005, but the old one that began in 1963. Finished it earlier this year, though my weekly wrap-ups of individual seasons haven’t all been published yet.

If you’ve been following them, and have decided you want to watch it, well, then, I’ll welcome you aboard the TARDIS. If you still aren’t sure, or if you want to offer something to friends to help them decide if they want to watch the old show, let me offer this. It’s the original sales pitch to the BBC for the show:


[The YouTube]

Now Who can argue with that?

No particular reason for this, other than it’s cool. I love movies, and have seen a bunch of the films in this. But not all.


[The YouTube]

I have several of the early Georges Méliès shorts. Some of his effects still hold up well. Some don’t. But it’s all fun.

Come to think of it, I need to post some of his works. You might not care about it, but I’d enjoy it.
