 "I hunted for a CD of that score for years. I was so happy when I found it.  I'm also one of the handful of people on Earth that love the movie!"



I'm in that handful as well. I know it has it's flaws, but I still love it. I still need to get it on Bluray so I can finally watch it in Widescreen format.

 Listening to: Jerry Goldsmith's phenomenal score to THE SHADOW while I read comics.


One of my favorite Goldsmith scores!

I'm so pleased to hear that your life is full of positives these days, Mark. That's awesome. I hope your relationship continues to blossom. And I'm happy that you are getting to spend some quality time with India. It sounds like it's been a great Summer so far. Here's to the trend continuing.  Grin

I have faded into oblivion... well not quite, I confess. But most of my social stuff is on Facebook these days, and generally chats with people I could walk down the street to see half the time.

I've just found over the last four/five years my actual knowledge base/interests have moved so far from horror I'd don't have a great deal to contribute, though I do drop in at least once a week to see what's going on... not that anyone misses me Smiley




We miss you, Steve. Truth be told, I read and watch more Fantasy, Weird, Suspense, SF, and Mystery than Horror nowadays, but I'm still here because I enjoy the group of people that gather here. And I like it here because it's a pretty civil message board community.

Over the years, many board members come and go. Some make such a strong impression they pop up in your mind now and then, especially when you realize you haven't seen them around in ages. Take for instance, Dave Solow. Whom I remember from multiple message boards. I remember him saying he was retiring from his job some time back. I hope he's off traveling and having a wonderful retirement. I just miss seeing his posts around.

Who are some of the other Board members whose presence you miss, either here at The Horror Drive-In or at any of the now defunct boards?

I'll believe it when camera's actually start filming. The Dark Tower has been in development hell for so long I've lost any faith that it will actually come to fruition. Though, I'd love if it did.

I'm reading The Darktower:The Wastelands right now. I'm hoping to complete my first full trip to the Dark Tower this year.

The wife and I really enjoyed Deadpool. I liked it better than KICK-ASS! Ryan Reynolds was born to play Wade Wilson.  A great time at the movies!

Anyone who liked Reynolds in Deadpool should check out his movie Just Friends. It's become an annual holiday watch in our house.

I get a message saying "This title is not currently available for purchase".

Try again on Tuesday; whatever the problem is, I'm sure it'll be straightened out by then.


Ron, I think he meant the link to A Haunting of Horrors: A Twenty-Novel eBook Bundle of Horror and the Occult that Mark linked to. I got the same "This title is not currently available for purchase," message. Looks like Amazon might be experiencing a glitch.

10  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: I always said I was all in for a S/L of Simmon's SUMMER OF NIGHT... on: February 08, 2016, 05:47:52 PM


I tried to read Summer Of Night years ago, but got bored fairly quickly. King's IT is one of my favorite books, so I thought Summer Of Night would be right up my alley, but it just didn't grab me. Maybe I need to give it another go. Perhaps I just wasn't in the right mood.


As for the Price. Yikes! That is a lot. I just don't have the funds, or the desire to spend that much on a book I can buy in a cheaper edition. My colleting bug isn't that big. I think I only ever payed that much for a single book, just once. That was for KaldaróWorld of Antares by Edmond Hamilton from Haffner Press. I had to pick it up on the secondary market years after it went out of print.

Very sorry to hear this, Mark. Mortality, sucks! And made even worse when people have to suffer at the end of their lives.
Sending positive thoughts to Barbara, you, Tanya and the kids. I hope her suffering eases soon.

Don't worry about the book club, I'm sure we can delay it anyway. We all have plenty to read. I'm sorry to hear you are going through a hard time, Mark. I hope everything works itself out. Keep us apprised about your situation, and if there's anything we can do. Positive thoughts heading your way.

Watching : the latest X-Files episode was hilarious

Also watching : Northern Exposure box set, just started



Hey Kyle, is this your first experience with Northern Exposure? I used to love that show, I often think of getting the DVD set to rewatch, but I'm not sure if
it will hold up. Also I heard, like a lot of TV DVD releases, they changed a lot of the music that originally aired in the episodes. Let me know what you think of the box set. 

-AJ



I'd be curious as well.  I loved Northern Exposure when it was on in its original run, and I still love it, though it doesn't come on TV much anymore and it isn't streamed on Netflix,etc.  Lots of memories associated with that show; it's among my favorite shows of all time, probably in the top three.  I've looked at that complete box set in the sheepskin carrying bag a dozen times or more on eBay...one of these days I may just break down and get it.

Interesting little aside:  I'm the pack leader of a local motorcycle enthusiast group and have coordinated the past four years a large annual group ride.  Last year -- 2015 -- I promoted a Northern Exposure ride, and led folks out to Roslyn, WA, the town in Eastern'ish Washington where the exteriors were shot (the interiors were actually shot in a film studio in Redmond, WA)...it was only the second time I'd been out there.  The first time was when the show was still in production; these days, the Northern Exposure remnants in town are, unfortunately but not surprisingly, few.  The Brick Saloon is still there, Joel Fleischman's office still has his name on the window, but it's a gift shop.  Rosalyn's Cafe is still there, as is, of course, the famous wall...here's a shot of my daughter (my sometimes riding buddy, who came along on the annual group ride for the first time last year) in front of it:





That's cool, Ron. Nice Pic of the Roslyn Cafe wall. I don't think I ever knew it was filmed in Washington.

My wife an I loved tonight's episode. Laughed all the way through it. Paused it to look up Easter eggs. I hope they do a full season.

Agreed. I found this Vulture article about the Easter Eggs in tonight's episode. http://www.vulture.com/2016/02/x-files-easter-eggs-weremonster.html#
