... click on the link to "General Discussion" and then on the link to "Guacamole."


God, I remember that thread.

Any idea how we can get to page 2 and 3 of it?

And I want to get into Gunny's "White Hunter Black Heart" thread, but it's not opening. What's up with that?

Thanks very much for that Matt.

If KC or anyone can find my exact join date, I would be most grateful.

My non Eastwood friends say I spend too much time on this board. I can at least now tell them how many years I have been here.

Great thread.

It's worth pointing out that she was very scared of singing in those films .
That also wasn't the first time she had acted with apes , if you include the episode of Planet of the apes she appeared in .(The cure in 1974)

Looks like Jan '99.  The above is from a Sondra Locke thread.

  Browing through there I saw a few of Speedzoo's posts and Manco 2; both are old school Eastwood Webboarders.

  Ya know, Gunny's posts read like bad Haiku.

Alas, they're probably gone for good ... both the rest of the "Guacamole" thread and the "White Hunter Black Heart" thread. It seems to be haphazard which of the links have been archived along with the page containing them.

In the same incarnation of the "General" forum there's a nice thread (page 1 only) started by mgk, called "Francesca - any regrets?" Worth checking out. Sure do miss her posts.

Many thanks Lilly.

Wow nearly seven years. How time flies, I never thought it was that long.

No, the Scorsese Board folded even before Cal moved Eastwood. Too bad, I liked it over there. There wasn't quite as much action there as on the Eastwood or Leone boards (Leone really had the most post-per-day when I started participating in all three boards), but the handful of us regulars talking about Marty really knew our stuff and had loads of fun. I lost touch with all those guys within months after the board folded. We never found another Scorsese board. Too bad. If I wasn't such a Luddite and didn't spend all my time on the boards I do frequent (HOURS a day) I might have done one myself. Never happened. Never will.

Alas.


After participating on lots of different boards over the years, I'm always impressed by how Cal has been able to not just maintain but keep his great site and board growing year after year. I also rarely get a chance to openly commend him for his efforts. Thanks a million, Cal. And thanks to KC and all the other moderators over the years, too. You all have done a great job, and this is definitely a site where you care see the care and passion of the people behind it.

Thanks, Holden.  Shame it folded.  From a brief look at the FilmBug Scorsese forum, it doesn't look too well organised.  I know what you mean about wanting to start a site but not doing it.  I've lost count of the sites I've started and not finished, or not even started.  I know there's no point me doing a forum 'cause my job will be too disruptive for me to provide long-term maintenance. :(  Anyway it'd suck up our lives!

I second your thought about Cal et al.  This board is more constant than most things in cyberlife.

No, that was among the few pages I saved to CD from the old board, before we migrated over here in December 2002.

 8) Yeah, I like it when everyone falls into a conversation outta the blue.

Here's a cap of Philo's registration, just for the sake of it.

The White Hunter thread I remember. I tried one last (futile) time to explain to Gunny how unreadable his posts were by replying in kind, and somehow I managed to slip in the Groucho Marx line about awaking one morning to find an elephant in his pajamas. Not that it dented Gunny's, let's call it enthusiasm, for posting the way he always did.

Ah, just like it was yesterday.


KC, did you save or find that thread about Eastwood porno titles?

Exactly, Holden! That's the post I was referring to earlier in this thread, a few pages back (but only posted about two hours ago). I had a feeling it was in that thread, which is why I was trying to open it. That was the funniest damn post I've ever read.

Reading back over some of these posts and topics from years ago, it's really why I rarely have anything to add in the "on-topic" Eastwood forums the past couple years. Those of us who were here back then, we went over and over all this information so many times, from so many angles, I just burned out on it and got sick of essentially repeating myself for the eighty-third time on this topic or that. I know this was years ago now, and the majority of those people I thrashed it out with have gone, but to me it does still seem like yesterday, and I just can't rev up the same energy to talk about the minutiae of Eastwood's entire filmography. Been there, done that...for years. I love Clint's films even more now than I did then, I just can't stand the sound of my own voice discussing them anymore.

Anyway, a nice stroll down memory lane.

  Remember that weird rating system?  Stars I think it was...All it took was one bad argument or an arch-nemesis on the board you got lowered.  I had a full rating and then some knucklehead argued with me about "Silverado".  The next time I logged in I was less one star (or whatever the rating was).

I looked at some of the pages from the old board that I had archived for myself ... and discovered that I had 10,626 posts  :o  there just before we switched over to the New Board.

Actually, I had quite a few more than that, because there was a great CRASH of the old board in late '99 or early '00 and some of us (not Philo, though) lost our old registrations and all of our old posts. My last posts on the old board show me as having registered in Jan. 2000, but as I said much earlier in this thread ... I remember the date very well, it was Nov. 26, 1998.  :)
