There’s just one Nick Lowe. But that’s enough.

Sure there must be SOMEthing that’s lower than Lowe.

The Wife wrote a blog post about character actor Sam Levene, highlighting his work in a sadly underappreciated thriller from Jonathan Demme.  

Heaven only knows how people find out about things on the Internet, but somehow Sam’s son John found out about the post and left her a note in comment.

It’s fun when things you write make their way to the people you write about.  I once commented, when I found out that handsome character actor Ray Danton was married to Julie Adams, ravishing star  of Creature from the Black Lagoon, that their kids must be drop dead gorgeous.  One of the replied and said “Yeah, we are.”

Throwback Thursday - Ever wonder how we filmed the opening crawl? Now you know.

But unless I head incorrectly, the wonderful analog crawl was replaced by a digital one in the Special Editions, yes?

Doctor Who makes a huge leap forward tonight - the entirety of season four is being skipped due to there being no serial without missing episodes.  

William Hartnell’s last adventure, The Tenth Planet, is missing the last episode, which is of course includes the first historic regeneration sequence.  Luckily, the moment of the regeneration episode still exists, saved from an episode of kids’ magazine show Blue Peter, which has had a long association with the series.

Peter Purves, who played Steven Taylor on the series, eventually became a host on Blue Peter, and many other clips from lost episodes only survive from appearing on the popular show.

Sadly, we’ll not too much of Troughton at all, due to so many lost episodes, and some rights issues.  Season 5 is being skipped as well, as Retro TV didn’t get the rights to the only complete stories Tomb of the Cybermen, and the only recently discovered The Enemy of the World .  The Dominators was the premiere serial of season six, Patrick’s last, and sadly we’ll be missing another regeneration, as reportedly Retro also didn’t get The War Games.

On the bright side, the Pertwee years forward are complete (if you allow a handful of black and white only Pertwee episodes) so we’ll not miss anything due to that moving forward.

So enjoy Wendy Padbury’s glorious ass while you can, cause you won’t get to see much of it.

Behold the sweet, sticky, deep-fried awesomeness that is the Double Hundred Dozen, for those days when a single dozen doughnuts simply won’t suffice. It’s the the biggest box of doughnuts we’ve ever seen and it was just unveiled in London by Krispy Kreme UK for their new Occasions offering.

The 3.5 m (~11.5 ft) long box contains 2,400 Original Glazed doughnuts. It took eight staff members worked together to fill the box and load it onto the delivery truck. The company is currently holding a contest to celebrate the launch of their large-scale delivery service. One lucky business will win a Double Hundred Dozen. We hope the winners aren’t messy eaters, because that’s how you get ants.

And please, should you dare to order a Double Hundred Dozen doughnuts, please make sure you brush and floss after feasting on all that sugary fried dough.

REBLOGGING FOR THE LAST POST

There were once topless female centaurs in Fantasia, IMS.  I believe they were either edited out or had flower garlands tastefully added at some point.

Gotta check if my LaserDisc copy still has them, as it does the original voice track.

Happy 227th #ConstitutionDay!

September 17 is designated as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787. Learn more about the U.S. Constitution through programs, and resources from the National Archives:

Have you ever been to the usnatarchives to see the Constitution in person?  

Bonus question - have you ever slept over in the same room as the Constitution?

I remember reading a comic about the installations of the country’s founding documents.  Allegedly, with the flip of a switch they will descend into their own individual vaults in case of attack or emergency.

Remember #BringBackOurGirls? This Is What Has Happened In The 5 Months Since

On the night of April 14, 2014, hundreds of schoolgirls at the Chibok boarding school in northeastern Nigeria awoke to the sound of gunfire. They saw men in camouflage approaching and thought soldiers were coming to save them from a militant attack, according to survivors’ accounts.

Like so many other internet causes, the bloom went off the rose, people lost interest, and we all assumed it was fixed, because we Did Something.
