Amazing Sports Events # 183

15 Jul

“Cricket ??!!!!” you say??
He must be out of his mind. 
Well, I do keep an eye on ALL sports. 
Because REALLY amazing things happen in Sports. 
Cricket – whether us North American people know it or not – 
is about the the most popular Sport on the Planet – outside Soccer
SO … Yesterday (all my troubles seemed so far away)
England – who invented the Sport – wins the World Cup of Cricket

for the first time – after 44 years of heartache and disaster.
BIG BIG CELEBRATION going on over there. 
And it was a truly amazing match.

Carry on Lads!

ART from the 70’s – Post 1

24 Jun

In 1969 I studied ART at The Alberta College of Art.
It’s now called Alberta University of the Arts.

It’s a Beautiful Day Today / Moby Grape ’69

I was a poor student. 
I’d told my folks that I intended to become a Commercial Artist.
(They’re called Graphic Designers now)
It didn’t take me long to discover that I didn’t have the

discipline for that.
They didn’t even use computers in those days.
I chose sculpture instead – and came away with nothing.
But in the meantime I drew stuff.
Lots of stuff.
And it’s been sitting in a box for 50 years. 

Here’s what some of it looks like:



I’ve more … lots more.

Four Guns to the Border

18 Jun

Nice write up on a Rory Calhoun Western – one of the great Western Stars of the 50’s.

Riding the High Country

Generic and predictable – aren’t those terms we’ve all seen tossed casually and in derogatory fashion towards westerns before? Yet generic is no sort of criticism at all, in my opinion. Almost all films, and certainly the more interesting and rewarding ones, belong to some genre or other. Using the word generic is simply an acknowledgement of the fact that certain tropes and trappings are present, and thus should not be construed as some negative feature. Which brings me to “predictable”, and few genres have within them the range and variety of the classic western. So whenever someone presents you with bland labels such as those above, I’d urge caution and encourage everyone to see for themselves and make up their own minds. Now all of this is, I’ll grant, a rather long-winded way of telling readers that Four Guns to the Border (1954) is film which proudly wears its…

Johnny Mack Brown and James Arness ride in for the February WFPS meeting

25 May

Love these old time Cowboys !

The Western Film Preservation Society

We have an action packed lineup for the February 21 meeting of the Western Film Preservation Society, Ed Wyatt Chapter at McKimmon Center on the campus of NCSU.

First up is Johnny Mack Brown in “West of Carson City” (1940). His sidekick is Fuzzy JMB-WCCKnight and the leading lady is Peggy Moran. There will be plenty of action with three of the baddest heavies in B-Westerns. With Harry Woods, Roy Barcroft, an Charles King in the same picture (they were only together in 4 films), it doesn’t get any better than that!

JA-GMDOur second feature stars James Arness in “Gun the Man Down” (1956). Robert Wilke is the heavy and this film introduces Angie Dickinson in her screen debut. There is not only plenty of action but also Angie and James! Between the fighting, gunplay, and Angie, you will not want to miss this one!


We will see Chapter…

Deadwood / Main Theme

Deadwood fans are something like Trekkies.
They’ve been harrassing HBO ever since the series was shut down.
Well … it worked. For at least one movie anyway.
Possibly to wrap things up.
It is a good series.

Ride On.

Super Blood Wolf Moon Lunar Eclipse

21 Jan

It’s Only a Paper Moon / Ella Fitxgerald

Truly a rare Celestial Masterpiece.

Not just an Eclipse (which is a rare enough event in itself) but a Super Blood Wolf Moon Lunar Eclipse

If such events mean anything – such as Portents (and I think they must) – then there must be a humdinger of a story behind this one.
The trick is – as always – in figuring it out.

I don’t by any “End of the World” or Apocalypse crap, but I do try to see what ‘rings true’ for me.
I’d like to think that I have the Spiritual tools within me to discover this for myself.
And sometimes I do. But I don’t have answers yet.

Meanwhile I’ll just howl at the moon.

Wolf Howl

A friendlier Golden Moon.

The next chance for another glimpse of a Super Blood Wolf Moon won’t come until. Nov. 8, 2022.
