Thanks, Ian. It's nice being able to get decent haggis again. Sorry I missed your contest in April.

"Erexorcist" stars Jane Lynch as the title role, it's gonna be written and directed by David Lynch, and the guy with the erection will be played by Dave Franco (cause he's in everything now-a-days), and the erection will of course be played by Pauly Shore.

Thanks! Yeah, it felt strangely suitable for that pic. Haha.

Thanks! I'm kinda hoping that Leia just gets one scene to let loose with her force powers & then, have that moment be her last stand, so to speak. It could either be so unexpected that it's absolutely amazing or so bizarre that it'll forever be doomed to be a lackadaisical meme. I didn't dislike Ep. VII as much as I thought I might, but I did feel like that perhaps there was a bit too much nostalgia pandering.

Also, there's this link which talks about potential references to Ep. I that were removed & edited which I thought was kinda odd, but whatever.

Thank you. Sometimes I think I'm being a little too subtle.

Ian, thanks. How's it been going? Good to see CW is still going strong. Funny, I haven't watched ACL in years. Maybe I'll give it a watch.

Gene Wilder


     Among my fondest memories of the 1970s and '80s was watching Young Frankenstein & Blazing Saddles on a 19" TV in a converted small bedroom in Grandpa & Grandma's house we called 'The Den'.  Filled with three generations of laughing Italian family and cousins, The Den became legendary for side-splitting, rib-busting and even tearful fits of laughter, thanks to Grandpa's homemade 'black box' and of course, Gene Wilder & Mel Brooks.  His writing and the characters he played appealed to all of us.  To this day I can easily hear in my mind his wonderful voice singing the songs from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. 

     Gene Wilder was the first actor I felt a real connection with.  His conscious choice to avoid profanity surely contributed greatly to the fact that I rarely use swear words in sentences, written or spoken, even for caption contests.  Young Frankenstein became the comedy bible for most, but hit particularly resonant chords in Generation X, who's young minds were just forming complex ideas when Gene came along, first in theaters followed by a near devotional level of airplay by 'Channel 100',  'The Z Channel' and finally HBO.  Today some of us can recite most of the film's dialogue and are still amazed when we discover that some still didn't realize that was Gene Hackman as the blind man, or that the train station sequence with Madeline Kahn was a tribute to Federico Fellini's '8 1/2', which was also shot in black & white just eleven years earlier in 1963.

     There is a palm tree in Santa Barbara with a plaque dedicating it to Gilda Radner.  I'm hoping we can plant another one close-by for Gene.

     If you have a favorite Gene Wilder movie clip, interview or memory please share it with us…

How to Drive Two Cars at the Same Time

I was watching In the Heat of the Night(1967) and heard Virgil say that Sam couldn't have driven two cars at the same time.

As Rod Steiger pondered this rarely-contested fact for a moment it dawned on me.   It is quite easy to drive two cars at the same time as long as you have about 30 feet of PVC pipe, 100 ft of 8 gauge steel wound wire and one roll of Gorilla Tape.  For ease of control the wires on the driver's end would be attached to a couple of hard-rubber handles controlling steering, gas & brakes:

WARNING:  Do not attempt this on the open road.  However, if you happen to live in the middle of Australia go ahead and have fun.  And, just like with remote control helicopters it's best to start out with inexpensive vehicles until you dial in the controls.
