10/6: 2. If a full moon shines in a sky obscured by clouds and rain...

is it really anything to brag about??

Friday night, Oct 6, 2006

Topics covered in my late night entry:
1) Website
2) General
3) Radio
4) Reviews
5) Issue Notes
6) Space/Ocean Headlines

1) Website
Ever heard of a British movie called Things To Come? Based on the book by HG Wells. This site is dedicated to it.

2) General

My Minnesota Twins baseball team certainly stank up the place today - as in the previous two games as well. Oh, well, there’s always next year.

Got an email from someone who told me The Thunder Child review of the Kreating Karloff doc was featured on a website called The Scoop:
Log onto the site and then scroll down to the section labeled "Mondo Media." Seriously, this site is major, and seen by fans, dealers and producers all over the globe.

So that’s pretty cool. It’s a pity that the copyright info for the pics I used from the doc wasn’t carried over to the page they use, but you can’t have everything...

Funny about tonight’s Full Moon being 12 % bigger than normal. Here in York County, VA it’s been raining all day and there’s no moon to be seen!

3) Radio
Tuesday October 17 at Radio Spirits
Tuesday 10-17
Lights Out!
Cat Wife starring Boris Karloff
Original Air Date - 4/6/1938
Speaking of Radio
Arch Oboler and Chuck Schaden
Original Air Date - 8/5/1976

Both of these are must listen to! Lights Out is a horror program, produced by Arch Oboler - he’s the guy who did Chicken Heart.
The Thing on the Fourble Board will be aired on October 30. Another science fiction/horror story. This is from Quiet Please, which is a pretty good show.

October 31 will be Ghost Hunt on Suspense. This is purely a horror story, but it’s interesting because the actor is the guy most famous for his This Is Your Life program.

4) Reviews
I placed an ad for reviewers at a Writing Website and have gotten a few replies. This is good because I’m getting inundated with books to review, and I want to be able to review books I receive in the month I receive them. So we’ll see how these guys pan out.

5) Issue Notes
Been working on the Moskowitz article and index.
