“Better Call Saul” Music Video

I’m looking forward to Better Call Saul  the spin-off from Breaking Bad.  According to the AMC site….

The series is set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, woven with dark humor.

“Hey, Hey, We’re The Monkees!”

I was seven years old when The Monkees  tv series premiered on September 12, 1966.  I became an instant and life-long Monkees fan.  I wasn’t alone.

The Monkees tv series won two Emmys (one for Outstanding Comedy Series – beating The Andy Griffith Show,  Bewitched,  Get Smart, and Hogan’s Heroes).  In 1967, The Monkees had four albums hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (the only group to ever do that) and they outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined.

Obviously there were (and still are) quite a few Monkees‘ fans out there.  If you’re one, you’ll want to check out Eddie Deezen‘s post  Hey, Hey, We’re the Monkees  at Neatorama.

Original “Star Trek” in Cinerama

Star Trek,  the original series, is a favorite of  many of my regular readers.  Click on this link to see the photo above in all of it’s widescreen glory.

So I wonder how many of you have ever seen Star Trek  in Cinerama widescreen like in the photo above?

Admittedly, that’s a trick question since Star Trek  was never filmed in Cinerama.  That photo above sure looks like Cinerama though thanks to the dedicated work of Nick Acosta.  Click over to Nick’s site and see more widescreen Star Trek  photos and learn how he did it.

Well done, Mr. Acosta.  Well, done, sir.
