Off-Topic Discussion / Kolchak - The Night Stalker. Do you remember?
« on: October 15, 2006, 03:15:05 PM »
 ;D ;D I just bought this TV show. I had forgotten how good was this show with Darren McGavin (he passed away in March 2006) as Carl Kolchak, a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service whose news stories would focus on the supernatural and science fiction situations.

From 1974 and just three-disc set, which compiles all 20 episodes of the show you notice where the inspiration from X-Files comes, and even Chris Carter has often acknowledged the influence of Kolchak on The X-Files, and paid homage to that legacy by casting Darren McGavin in a two-time guest role as retired FBI Special Agent Arthur Dales — the first agent assigned to what later became the bureau's X-Files office.

It's also worth noting that Kolchak: The Night Stalker was one of the first series that Sopranos series creator and executive producer David Chase worked on as a staff writer

Off-Topic Discussion / Anectdote for little_bill (Lone Ranger content)
« on: February 07, 2006, 09:47:49 AM »
I noticed you like my avatar. Thank you!

Clayton Moore, was another hero of my youth. I should say, the first one..later Batman

I would like to tell you this anecdote.

My first US visit was in 1995, to LA.
I visited with my wife and the drummer of my band, who was/is a kind of computer genius.

Anyway, one day we were driving our Toyota Tercel (rent), just sighseeing, when we found a huge computer store.
This meant a radical stop for my friend, and a forced visit for at least, a couple of hours... :P

My wife and I decided to walk around the neighborhood because we had not interest at all in computer or relative stuff
Suddenly I found a leather boot store, not so fancy, even not a big store, but having fine cowboys boots in the glass windows (correct term?)

"Hey, let´s see inside..real embroidered cowboys boots!" I said to my wife

Inside the store was a old man. I still remember the smell of leather.

Suddenly I started to watch  severals pictures of Clayton Moore, lot of them and even with his autograph or warm dedicacations....." to my fiend..."..."always remember you and your family..." and the signature

I was mouth open, asking myself what the h....when the old man approached to me saying "Good afternoon, may I help you?"..

Well..I mumble but still watching more the pictures than the boots.."no thank you, eeer..we are just looking ...eeer..a while.."

The dialog continued that way:

"oh I noticed you like The Lone Ranger" said the old man

"Sure!..Love him!..I never missed an episody. I wish I could have it all in VHS.."

"As you can noticed, Mr. Clayton Moore is a customer and a personal friend of mine, he wears 9 and a half...let me show you my album of photographs"

Let me tell you, I really had tears in my eyes. Lots of pictures of Clayton Moore posing with this man, several in black and white where you can still could recognize this old man, but younger

As you can imagine, the next hour I was a machine of questions and the old man was happy to answered all of them...from Mr. Moore, to Toto..and Silver...wich died with 29 years in 1977...this was a sad notice  :'(

The man was a open book and he really makes my day.
Finally he told that sometimes Moore used to visit him, write or call.
I begged him to give my admiration and regards to Moore and he promised he will do it

Later, when we met our friend he apologized for the time spend in the computer store. I just said...

"Do not apologize at all...I should thank you!"  ;D

Off-Topic Discussion / I bet you, you will LOL

Elvis Presley made a habit of not sticking to the lyrics.

Normally, Elvis should sing at a certain moment

"Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there".

 In this particular version he sings

"Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair". :o
The song continues for a couple of seconds and then Elvis spotted a man that is completely bald.

Hence the laughter.

"...According to the Contact Music website, "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe and "Billy Elliot" star Jamie Bell are the hot new candidates to call themselves "Bond, James Bond.",1259,---26720,00.html

Well, he did a nice role as HP, I think is a fine actor and has the british talking, because..he is british

Now, the thing he is to young for the Bond`s role. The only way could be  do some film about Bond's youth, similar to the last Batman beginning. This could be a very clever strategy

Meantine this boy can grow up for the next film, go to some gym and do some hair cut, not more glasses of course
At first I laughed about the idea, but..could it be...could it be...why not?
Some concepts goes to Jamie Bell ...I liked a lot his perfomance as Billy Elliot

Off-Topic Discussion / Guess what?..Guess Who!!
« on: September 19, 2005, 02:38:56 PM »
I am so proud and happy :D
About a month ago the bassman and I wrote a review of a Guess Who Cd at "cd universe"
You can read it here:

A coulple of days later we received this email:

"Dear Alfie This is Carl Dixon from the Guess Who that's "keeping it going". Thanks for the
message and positive vibes! I looked in on your website and it's pretty great. Good luck with
BELAIR and maybe we can play together in S.A. sometime. All the best, C.D."

And before yesterday we receive one CD signed for the band and this picture. We did not ask nothing, so this was a very gentle gift from the band

I always love the Guess Who and I may say that after The Beatles it is the band that I listen more often
And well, this is it, I feel fine and I want to share this with my friends in this board

Off-Topic Discussion / Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969)
« on: August 20, 2005, 02:37:09 PM »
I loved this Sci-Fi  film from 1969 and starring Roy Thinnes (From TV's Invaders).

I watched in my teen age and I remember is about  that there is another world in Earth's Orbit directly behind the sun. Roy Thinnes is selected to go on a mission to get to this world. Suspense and well done film
Nice special effect  from Gerry and Sylvia Anderson (Thunderbirds Are Go)

Now, searching Amazon I found it is a rare and expensive gem:

Meantime I search for cheaper prices I downloading from Inet (do not tell, bad boy  >:D). Not good quality anyway

Do you know where I can find this DVD at humble price?

Off-Topic Discussion / I really envy you (in a good way)
« on: July 22, 2005, 07:07:02 AM »
Yes, I envy you (North) american folks. Your life is so easy, practical...
Want to know the prize for living in South America?

Ok, read: I am planning to do my own guitar, so I fall in love with USA Warmoth's necks and bodies (One of the best -or the best- guitar factory parts in the world)
So I need neck and body

Let's start with the neck. Nothing fancy, just extra wood routing for LSR Nut, calculating around $200. Fair enough, want it!

So, I called customer office in my country just to ask about taxes.  ???

Take a sit my friends: 60%..
plus $45 if item cost more than $100..
plus $15 dispatch..
plus $12 per kilo

Total: around $400..  :o

No matter if my country produce or not an item. If any item cost more than $50...same taxes and expensives.
No taxes at all: books, CDs or DVD (no more than 2)

Do I have or not right to turn green...?  :P

Now I am looking any luthier...but not the same quality, wood, whatever..of course

Anyone could send to me a plegable neck hidden in a book? (preference: last Harry Potter book)  ;D

Now, if you excuse me, I pretend to cry all friday long  :-\

Off-Topic Discussion / Spooky time: Share your worst nightmare
« on: June 26, 2004, 07:49:46 AM »
Indeed. Every night our minds are flooded with dreams, sometimes nice ones or just bizarres, not sense at all
But sometimes our minds brings to us scary dreams.
Let me introduce worst nightmare :o

It is a recurrent one, I mean, I dream the same thing several times a year, 10 or 12 times

The script:

I am in my bed sleeping and suddenly I hear a noise. I try to turn on the light but nothing happens. This is horror scale grade 7, I hate blackouts and the dark itself :P

I don´t know why but I alone. no wife, no dog near

I wake up and begin to walk across the dark just with the moonlihgt company.
The first thing i do is to check msin door wich I find,...of course...wide open.  Terror scale grade 8,  because before go to sleep I check all doors and windows, even wardrobe doors. I cannot sleep watching any opening (maniac, sorry)

Okey, I begin to search all my house looking for something or someone. I feel a presence in some place but I don´t know where it is.

I stand in front of all room and I notice each door half open. Fear invade my heart but I take courage and jump into the room, checking behind doors

At that time my panic level is so high, that I think my brains search some escape valve, because I return to my room and get a gun, and this calm my nerves. I mean, I feel secure

Now, with the piece loaded and ready I return to the last place I did not search .....yet

I am in the bathroom (remember no lights at all) but I notice some movement in the shower curtain. Panic level gets high again...I approach..and open the curtain with a fast the same time, someone hidden there attacks me. I go back some steps, raise the gun....aim....but when I try to fire the piece... the damn thing do not respond!
In that moment I wake up, and the first thing I do is turn on the light and check home. After this secure procedure, I need 1 hour watching TV to calm down and go to bed again

Do I need Help

This is a clip from our show on TV from Uruguay, introducing Lay it on Me, the song we recorded for an international tribute to the late Maurice Gibb (Bee Gees), and edited in the UK

You need Real Player to see the clip
