Life Magazine, September 11, 2001

As never before, it was a tale of two years. Through September 10, the United States was a nation at peace, moving leisurely through a year in which not terribly much was happening. Sharks and movie stars and an economic malaise dominated small-sized headlines. Then, in a moment, everything changed. The country, visited by an unspeakable horror, was plunged into an altered universe. Terror, death and war were constants in the New Normal. Here, in vivid imagery, is the story of that year — of those years. A quick read, if you’re only looking at the words, this was part...

Tobor the Great

Directed by Lee Sholem. With Charles Drake, Karin Booth, Billy Chapin, Taylor Holmes. A young boy-genius befriends his grandfather’s robot, designed as a test pilot for space travel and coveted by foreign spies. Someone posted the above movie poster, and based on just this one image I found myself searching for the movie. A full version of it can be found for free on the Youtubes. This is a classic movie with fantastic retro science fiction concepts, the most obvious being the Robot’s name: “Tobor”, which is just Robot spelled backwards! He’s a less talkative version of Robby the Robot,...

Selena

Directed by Gregory Nava. With Jennifer Lopez, Edward James Olmos, Jon Seda, Jackie Guerra. The true story of Selena Quintanilla, a Texas-born Tejano singer who rose from cult status to performing at the Astrodome, as well as having chart topping albums on the Latin music charts. Selena was played by the arguably now more famous Jennifer Lopez, who I forgot is a pretty damn good actress as well. Such a shame about the end of Selena’s life. What an absolute waste. This was a good movie but man what a downer. Buy On Amazon!

9/13/2020 Weekly Blog

I’ve decided to do a weekly post, usually Sunday nights, normally late in the day after I’ve done my weekly chores and I’ve sat down for the night to watch a movie.  The animated version of Mulan is on right now via Disney+, and dinner is cooking in the kitchen, I believe tonight will be delicious lemon pepper chicken with some veggies. Why a weekly post? I’ve had a private blog of my own secrets for the last year and a part of that process has been a weekly reminder to do a blog post, which always made me think...
