    Beginning at 8 pm eastern, 5 pm Pacific on New Year's Eve, TCM will be showing all of the Thin Man movies in sequence, concluding at 6:45 am eastern, 3:45 Pacific on New Year's Day. Could there be a better way to ring out 2009 and ring in 2010?

    Smoke Damage Fix?

    A friend of ours had a fire in his apartment day before yesterday. A newly installed ventilation fan shorted out. Luckily, the landlord (grandmother of another friend of ours) was home, but it looks like the entire structure's going to be a write-off. He's most upset because a 40s suit that...

    Ebay scammer or am I overly cautious?

    I bid on and won an auction on the 10th. I immediately processed the payment via PayPal. On the 11th, I got a note from the seller that he's out of town traveling until the 21st or 22nd and will ship the item on probably the 23rd or 24th, when he's back home and has time to deal with things that...

    If you hurry...you have about 30 minutes (it's 8:30 pm in Seattle on Friday, 9/12) to flip on the Hallmark Channel to catch the episode of Murder, She Wrote called The Grand Old Lady. Why's this a big deal? 1. Originally written as an episode for Ellery Queen that never got produced filmed...

    LA Quake - 7/29 11:42 5.8 magnitude

    I hope all of you Loungers down there are OK and didn't lose anything in this latest shaker. Friends are IM'ing it had a lot more violent shaking than a "normal" 5.8 and lasted longer (10 seconds before it eased off). I'm watching KNBC on the net and no fires or buildings collapsing. They're...

    Bashing other's Bashes ???

    Sometimes a good answer to "Indiana Jones!" is "Well, no, actually, his hat was a...." and just go on & on & on with every little bit of minutiae and tiniest of detail - bore them to death with the topic. Three (will be four) different movies with different hats in each, compared to yours, and...

    Peter Grimm's advice on hat cleaning

    Yeah...well...a hat manufacturer who says hats can't be cleaned and you should buy a new one. Really? I wonder why? Could it be...perhaps...he's making more money selling you a new hat? [huh] Could it be...perhaps...that's affecting his "opinion" a bit?

    Golden Era Actor Tie to Christmas Trivia

    We were talking over breakfast earlier today about movies and plays, and how I was planning to sit back, relax and watch The Man Who Came to Dinner sometime today.

    Hat cake

    Perhaps slightly :offtopic: and perhaps a slight spoiler, but I've got a little flu bug and taking a "goof off day." I'm laying here watching Clean Slate with Dana Carvey because I dozed through the last quarter of another movie. But at about 13 minutes in, the cops have taken Pogue to a...

    R.I.P. Charles Lane

    Character actor Charles Lane passes at 102. And now I'm kicking myself. I'd written Robert Osborne just a couple of weeks ago saying this is someone he should do an interview on TCM with, and I had just gathered up all my DVD covers with movies he appeared in (and it's a huge stack!) to send...
