More about the above (*) later, but I have a deadline so I just want to say Thanks to the readers (if you're out there) and I hope you'll keep coming back! Seems like only yesterday but it's been lots of fun blogging here and on the cfb's sisters, continuum horror and Ina's (70s) horror.
There's tons to catch up on--dead ass links to resolve and a mast head to possiblely redesign-- coming up in future. I tell ya this makes me very happy--who'd a thunk it! I'm looking forward to expanding and improving the blogs!
Here's a birthday clip from my faves Key and Peele, who I haven't written about here yet. I love this sketch and it comically embodies many of the cinema, race, art and cultural concerns that have fuelled this blog for a 1/2 decade!
I'm a little melancholy today. My parents weren't very religious but but they did religiously celebrate Easter. No matter what or where there was always at least a card for me even after I had gone away to college, and when I was young, I got an Easter basket (made by mom, not store bought) or a stuffed animal. On the air base in Panama I remember going to the officer's club for Sunday brunch. Usually this called for a new dress or lace tights and mom and I would wear hats. Dad wore a springy dress uniform.
Back in New York there would be dinner with the Wilkins and dad would roast a lamb, a ham, a turkey or a fresh ham -- sometimes all of the above! There would be dyed eggs and I would search the house and the yard.
So much nostalgia-- I guess cause I'm sick this weekend and couldn't make the choco-roonies. And mom and dad aren't here...
Here's a little more Easter memorabilia...
Still, happily, I have an invite to dinner and many wonderful memories to resurrect!
If anyone's out there... You may have noticed that I haven't been posting recently. I've been "concentrating" on my horror blogs for the summer so I've put this place keeper here for a bit. You can find links to the horror at the side of the page. BTW, I say they are horror blogs but when I look at real horror bloggers--I'm in awe! So really, I'm just a Horror dabbler. But I guess I love it...
(btw, TV snow used to scare the heck outta me...)

I like him. He's a little smarmy yet urbane and charming...
I had an excellent dream last night in Freeport. I dreamt that Gig Young was courting me! Not sure why he appeared just now but he was welcome! I dig Gig in Twilight Zone's "Walking Distance"--the theme?: You can't go home again and maybe that's what Gig was trying to remind me of. It's a very moving episode. The music is by Bernard Herrmann.
"Walking Distance" (1959) directed by Robert Stevens. With Rod Serling, Gig Young, Frank Overton and Irene Tedrow.
