Enjoyed all of these.  Great seeing Jackie Chan in action again.  The third Thor film is better than its’ predecessor and Justice League lived up to expectations.

I think Chan was rumored to appear in one of the Expendables sequels, disappointed he wasn’t so I was looking forward to seeing The Foreigner and hope to see more by Chan before long.   The man is still entertaining, still quick, still strong and still relevant.

I’m enjoying Marvel and DC Comics’ superhero film output as of late.  Who’m I kidding?  I have been ever since Marvel took over the movie franchise from DC with their Spider Man and X-Men films beginning in 2000.  DC has been slow to follow, but began gaining speed with The Dark Knight Trilogy.  While Superman Returns was a step backwards, they’ve since regained their footing with Man Of Steel, Batman Vs Superman, Wonder Woman and now Justice League.

I can’t wait to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi next month.  I offered to take my ex-wife along with our kids to see it, since I did the same with The Force Awakens not long after we separated.

Uncle Fred.  My heart has broken this morning upon hearing the sad news of God’s decision to call you Home.  It’s a hurt that can never be repaired.

You have been more than an uncle to me in my fifty plus years of life.  We shared a kindred spirit in our upbringing, while a generation apart there were many similarities. 

I will forever miss our camaraderie, spending time together and visiting Courtney, Neveah and AJ.  I’ll never enjoy watching John Wayne, “The Duke”, movies the way I did with you. 

You are free from pain now and with our Lord, Jesus Christ.  May you be welcomed into Heaven at The Pearly Gates with open arms. 

Along with being my mom’s brother, you have been one of my truly best friends.  I am proud to be your nephew. 

Now, don’t forget your shine box!  😉

And remember, you really are a funny guy! 🤣

I love you, Uncle Fred!

May God Bless You and May You Rest In Peace.

😪😘

I very much enjoyed listening to this again yesterday.  Sure brings back memories of the first time I listened to it.  The overall sound, style and production comes through very nicely.  I find this album very entertaining and am happy that it’s available on Spotify. 

Both vocals and instrumentals are equally good.  Irene Cara is flawless in her performances of Get Happy and Embraceable You.  Funny how the opening song would also turn out to be the title to the Academy Award winning Eastwood film released twenty years later.

“Within Without You” 10/18/17

Views inside & outside a tree in Malden.  I liked the view standing at the base of this tree so I decided to capture some images.  That’s the first five.  You’d think the last six could be different trees but they are one and the same, just different angles.   In one of the images, it appears the sun is splitting the tree in half from the top.

^^^Yes, a very nice tribute to Mr. Stanton.  Thanks for sharing.  Coincidentally, Stanton is the name on the one next to the "Unknown" marker where Blondie and Tuco locate the gold at the finale of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. 

Both markers can be seen in this image from the movie.



This appears to be a more recent image but I am unsure if they are the same ones as those in the film.

Great album from 1990 and much better than Donny Osmond's output around the same time.

11/03/66 (Original Airdate)

10/13/07 (Remastered Airdate)

A madman is on the loose on board the Enterprise.  He is an escapee from a rehabilitation facility on Tantalus V during a routine cargo drop.  Not a patient, Dr. Simon Van Gelder is an employee. 

This revelation forces Kirk to investigate and Dr. Tristan Adams is exposed for abusing his position as director of the Tantalus Penal Colony by conducting abusive experiments with the "Neural Neutralizer".

Veteran tv actors James Gregory and Morgan Woodward perform convincingly in their roles as Dr's Adams and Van Gelder, respectively.  Woodward would return to Star Trek, in a different role and I remember Gregory's recurring appearances on Barney Miller as Detective Frank Luger.  Although unrecognizable in 1970's Beneath The Planet Of The Apes, his unmistakable voice can be heard in his characterization of Ursus.  "The only good human is a dead human!"

In response to a distress signal the senior officers, captain's yeoman and two security officers beam down to a planet almost identical to Earth.

They discover the inhabitants are only children and that once they reach puberty, don't have much longer to live. 

Being adults, the landing party is automatically infected and are tasked with finding a cure before it's too late. 

Two of William Shatner's daughter appear in this episode, Lisabeth and Melanie. 

Kim Darby would go on to appear in the western film True Grit, with none other than the iconic John Wayne.

^^^Yes, I'll check it out.  I hope they pull it off.  It'd be nice to see a decent parody on a weekly basis.   The last such attempt didn't fare so well, Richard Benjamin starring in Quark in 1977.  It only lasted one season.  I'll probably see more of The Orville then Star Trek: Discovery because with the exception of the premiere episode, the latter won't be available on network television.  Cable is expensive enough for me to bother paying extra for one series that I'm unsure about.  The other Star Trek spinoffs are fine but I haven't gone out of my way to watch every episode.
