There are several ways to post an image but this is the one I use. First right click on the image and then left click 'copy image location' (for Firefox, it says something different but similar for other browsers)..after that use the formula from the link I'm giving you, pasting what you copied between the two quotation marks " from the formula. One other thing, if it's a thumbnail then click it first before copying the image location so it will be full size. Here is the link with the formula http://html.com/attributes/img-src/

Speaking of fun: You may have heard about (or just plain heard) Roy Zimmerman's tunes. A guy with a strong voice, a great guitar, and a mind / lyrics that just don't quit. (He has LOTS of vids up on YouTube.) He's a great tonic for the era, and a plain great time. Whether by vid, or in person, you'll likely be appreciative of his work. (He's in Hollywood Sunday morning at 11, 7/23, if you want details. He and his wife tour all over the country playing in small venues (and people's homes, when there's a gathering of friends). It's usually $20 at the door -- BUT they always say in their newsletter "...or pay what you can." Their newsletter is also fun, too. Anyhoo, just a thought, if it sounds interesting. Give a holler if you want details. (And, yes, please -- drop a line any time about anything, anytime!)

Just passing by on my way to logging out, and thought I'd send up a generic flare to see what's happening in your sector of the galaxy, and how that whole "rich pageant of life" thing is going out your way.

No lottery strikes here, or I'd share. Meanwhile, the REBOOT LIFE HERE button is definitely out of whack --and I have no idea where to order more whack.

(I imagine that must be where the lottery comes into this fascinating circular absurdo-drama we call life.)

Any perspectives or clues from your grid searches?

BTW: Mentioned I'd be passing a review along, so here we are: Rec'd the "Singing Detective" set today and watched the first ep.

Based on that one, I'm calling this one a winner. There's a bit more "film grit" in the production values, owing to the age, but the writing, acting, staging, art direction, and music are all just about perfect. Out of the gate, an easy win (not counting for age issues). The set itself is fine -- good pic and sound. (Comparable to "Prime Suspect" in the overall look of that era's technological abilities, if that helps any.)

The music is really well done and well placed, and not at all like a standard musical, thank goodness. Very touching and moving in places, and a great light touch and laugh-out-loud funny in others.

Missus Mongo and I did a little more hunting around, and she came up with a possibility: the Borger Housing Authority, (806) 274-2612.

Granted, these folks are trying to find places for people to live, BUT: they interact all the time with landlords, owners, etc., and may have lines on those who do maintenance and upkeep. Who knows -- you may even be able to find a rent-to-buy person willing to do the maintenance and upkeep as part of the rent?

Perhaps that is the way to start the conversation with them -- as a person who has a house... then get into the details with them and see what creative solutions are available / possible?

This may not be an instant winner, but more of a "fish-until-you-find" mission for a helpful person, persons, or group. At least, they're an interactive hub among people with housing needs and those who provide housing. Surely, one hopes, those folks will know people who do maintenance and upkeep for tenants and landlords? Yeesh! From some internet searching of Borger, this may be the best lead. (But, hey -- what do we know, a zillion miles away?)

As always: May the Farcical Forcicle* be with you.

Just thought I'd check in and see how the start of your summer is going? We've been lucky here till recently but hot weather has arrived to stay for the next 3 months. So it's early for any outside activities(if you can help it) and by 10 or 11 hopefully you're inside with some decent air conditioning.

To follow up Autopilot, what do you consider the most shocking riff? It could be anything -- something risque that slipped by the network, or perhaps humor that was fine in 1990 but offends 21st Century sensibilities. I think my choice would be (can't remember the episode -- maybe I Accuse My Parents) where a guy walks into the scene with a woman and Servo says "I brought the vag." It's close between that and "the three spooges" from Slime People.

Frankenstein Island (1981)

Jerry Warren, the writer/director of 'The Wild World of Batwoman', took a long break after that 1966 movie, only returning to filming 15 years later, with 'Frankenstein Island'. Whatever he was doing in the interim, it certainly wasn't Film Studies.

Several of the cast are varyingly familiar names from 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' episodes like Batwoman, Space Mutiny, Red Zone Cuba and The Giant Spider Invasion.

However, John Carradine only appears as a disembodied head, delivering dialogue that may actually be from a completely different movie. Fellow B-Movie stalwart Cameron Mitchell appears to be channelling Edgar Allen Poe, in a performance that seems mostly a work of drunken improvisation, much like the plot.

Okay, the plot... erm... uh... well, it barely exists. Hot air balloonists, alien Amazons, zombies, a henchman who laughs before delivering every line, kung fu zombies, Sheila Frankenstein, Professor Van Helsing, telepathy-induced forearm spasms, a vegetable patch, vampire zombies, vampire Amazon aliens, plus dialogue that sounds like it was written by a species that only communicates non-verbally.

The titular monster does turn up... eventually. Over 70 minutes into the movie, in fact. He doesn't really do much, though, even in the final fight scene.

That scene sums up the movie, apart from the fact that there's some action in it. And here it is - five minutes and 10 seconds of "what the actual freshly-squeezed hell am I watching?"
