This child of the 70′s has been counting the days till Dark Shadows (2012) hits the theatres. You just know Johnny Depp is going to really take the character of Barnabus Collins places the screenwriters never imagined.
With that said I was very sad to read that Jonathan Frid left this plane of existence today. I was delighted to find that the 87 year old Frid worked on his own website. Do read his essays – definitely his version of blogging.
Hitchcock (2013) is on my long-term looking forward list. Anthony Hopkins will be playing The Master of Suspense. I can still remember the moment Hitchcock’s death was announced on the radio. I was 18 years old, it was late April 1980, aisle three of my father’s grocery store. Hitch was on my people I want to meet most in the whole wide world list. I was a fixture at the Thalia, a local theater that showed classic and art films, throughout my teen years. Hitch’s film’s were among my favorites. Believe me you haven’t seen a Hitchcock film till you’ve seen it on a theater screen. And I saw them all including Dial M for Murder in 3D, and Under Capricorn his only costume drama.
The weatherman says rain for Sunday, so I am going to devote part of the afternoon to a new book on my Kindle: Among the Cloud Dwellers
My bella blogger buddy Michelle at Bleeding Espresso recommended it.
Also on my rainy Sunday to-do list — checking out the Tribeca Film Festival online.
Okay, gotta boogie outta here for now.
See you soon.
I just love this video.
Congratulations to Mathew Ho and Asad Muhammad – two 17 year olds who went for it.
And Congratulations to Canada! You should be very proud of your two sons.
Today I discovered this quote over at Sachin’s Space:
“Even someone using their Android phone in a coffee shop to wirelessly write a blog post featuring their YouTube video made on their Windows PC with their webcam owes a partial debt to the man who originally pushed the notion that technology should be usable by, and primarily designed for, ordinary people rather than just technicians and academics.”
I am that person. I love blogging from my Android, IPhone and IPod Touch. I found the artist within via technology that was simple enough for near forty newbie. Now I’m near fifty and still enjoying myself online.
Thanks again Steve.
And thank you Sachin for sharing.
