Before Love Story, it was A Man and a Woman (Un Homme et une Femme). You couldn't go anywhere in 1966 without hearing its theme, especially, at least six times a day . . .

. . . including by jazz legend Charlie Byrd . . .

! No longer available

I always wondered who did that song or what it was called! I heard it several times as background music on TV back in the 1990s but never could figure it out. The first song I ever recognized as being in 5/4 time (though it seems to shift now that I hear the whole thing).

Now I know.

I remember thinking I was so funny when I set Apple Macintosh error sound to "I'm sorry, Dave.  I'm afraid I can't do that."

Such great voice acting.

I did that too on my old Macintosh! I miss doing that with the new computers.

I sleep in the nude. Au buffo! Winter or summer with the windows open. And because I may have to go to the potty or to the fridge in the middle of the night, and because I do not like to wear jammies which I don't own, anyway, unless you'd like to give yourself a cheap thrill or your daughter an advanced education, you'll keep your door closed. Them's my rules and regulations, how do ya like those apples?

Don't torture yourself, darling---that's my job.

Close your mouths, we are not codfish!

Heeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny!

You don't need a nickname, you need a curve ball.

Burt Gummer's about to finish off the monster. The DARPA Spooks try to stop him so they can turn it into a bio weapon.

"You, bunch of malevolent ineptiods." He tells them just before he hits the detonator.
My 'Viking Hunter' High Adventure Alternate History Series is FREE, ALL 3 volumes, at most ebook retailers including Ibooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more.

In Vol 2 the weapons come out in a winner take all war on two fronts.

Vol 3 opens with the rigged murder trial of the villain in a Viking Court under Viking law to set the stage for the hero's own murder trial.

R.I.P Stan Lee.  Passed away at age 95 after a long illness.

Just breaking on the news.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

Stan Lee, last of the Silver Age comic book authors, dies at 95



Having begun his career in 1939, Stanley Lieber entered a field that had previously been dominated by what is now DC Comics. By the early 1960s, Lee's employer, then known as Atlas Comics, decided to take aim at DC's dominance of the field. With the help of Steve Ditko (who died earlier this year) and DC defector Jack Kirby, Atlas became Marvel Comics, creating a legion of more human, realistic superheroes, set in real cities (whereas DC based their characters in vaguely fictionalized representations like Gotham and Metropolis, Marvel bluntly set much of their comics in New York City). From this boom came Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, the X-Men, and several others that formed the basis of the Avengers, Marvel's answer to DC's Justice League. Marvel's willingness to confront communists and portray them as enemies when DC ignored them was a major factor in the rapid rise in Marvel's fortunes in the 1960s.

Lee eventually transitioned into the comic books' most well-known and passionate public ambassadors, appearing in cameo appearances in most of Marvel's many film and television adaptations. The characters Lee co-created and developed are believed to have earned enough money to have made him a billionaire, although he attests to have never made that much money and was embroiled in legal action for much of his later life.

Lee died of unknown causes in Los Angeles the morning of November 12.
