    The Movie and TV Show Idea Thread

    Here are some ideas I came up with; I even cast them. THE CORPORATIONIST (1978) Directed by Werner Herzog. In Bonn, Germany an office building worker (Bruno Ganz) begins having vivid hallucinations of a chalk-skinned man in a suit (Max Von Sydow) after orange formica and faux-wood paneling...

    DEATHS ; Notable Passings; The Thread to Pay Last Respects

    Jonathan Frid , the original Barnabus Collins, has died. As bad as that remake looks, I don't think it killed him. However, knowing his connection to that character, I think he'll be back.

    The Yoga Pants trend

    I think your yoga pants are on too tight. ;) You know what? The thread title looks odd now; put back the "c."

    Beloved Comic Books--The Uncanny X-Men

    With my recent acquisition of Enemy Ace DC Archives Vol. 2, my interest in Joe Kubert and Bob Kanigher has been revitalized. Joe Kubert's art is cinematic in its approach, as seen in Showcase #57 (1965)

    What Are You Reading

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. I bought this for my wife this past Christmas, because she's become such a huge Dr. Who fan (Adams was script editor during season 17), despite hating it when she was a child. This book is every bit as brilliant as many say it...

    What Are You Reading

    A Day with Picasso by Billy Klüver The author retraces the steps of Picasso and his fellow art cronies on August 12, 1916 using fine detective work based on 24 photographs taken by Jean Cocteau. The most interesting aspect of the book is how Klüver chronicles the art scene of the period and...

    Your Favorite Paintings

    I first heard of Klee around 1994-95 when I read the classic 1960 Downbeat profile of pianist Bill Evans: "[Evans'] clothes are just about what's in fashion, he shaves every morning, and his Manhattan apartment is an ordinary three-room affair. A bed, a few chairs, and a kitchen table is the...

    Your Favorite Paintings

    Paul Klee- (Southern) Tunisian Gardens, 1919 I love his epitaph: "I cannot be understood at all on this earth. For I live as much with the dead as with the unborn. Somewhat closer to the heart of creation than usual. But not nearly close enough."

    Beloved Comic Books--The Uncanny X-Men

    Something my fellow comic readers will love... Comic Book Time Machine Select a month, year, and comics company to see all the issues published during that month. Keep in mind that the COVER date is often three months ahead of the CALENDAR date. So if you look up August 1975 by cover dates...

    Beloved Comic Books--The Uncanny X-Men

    That issue holds some nostalgia for me, as it was among the first books I bought "off the wall" behind the counter at the comic shop. I wasn't an X-Men reader when the issue was first published, so I had to scrape together allowance for quite some time to pay the $6.00 or whatever I paid for it...

    Beloved Comic Books--The Uncanny X-Men

    I was mostly a Cracked reader in the late '70s, primarily due to the John Severin (who died back in February) artwork, but I later came to prefer Mad in a big way. Dave Berg was criminally underrated; I love his stuff. I have a few beat-up issues of both mags lying around.
