Flipping channels last night, I noticed Carl Weathers was a guest star on the reboot of ‘Magnum PI’. What made me laugh was he was standing next to the two Dobermans, who I always thought had fantastic names, Zeus and Appollo. As you’ll recall, Carl Weather played “Appollo Creed” in the Rocky movies, so I got a chuckle out that. Weathers, btw, is now 70 years old and looks great. Sylvester Stallone looks great for a 72-year-old, but looks freaky, unlike Weathers.
Speaking of dog names, I wanted to name OtherDogGeedingII “Roosevelt” but got voted down by the family. The kids at one point wanted to name him “Teddy” because he looks a bit like a teddy bear. That made me think of Teddy Roosevelt, then my love for presidential history and my father’s favorite president, Franklin. This all started while watching a Cowboys game when I spotted Jerry Jones’ driver, Roosevelt. I play this “game” every time Jerry is on the screen and see if I can spot Roosevelt, who is almost always by his side and always wearing sunglasses.
Five years after taking it off the shelves, the company believes there’s enough demand for the 35mm color transparency film to give it a second go, a move that looks set to delight long-time film fans in the business of taking stills as well as moving pictures.
“We need to replace pictures of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck with images of famous Egyptians and military martyrs, so that children will look up to them as role models. These characters are US-made, whereas we have our own noble figures who can deepen children’s patriotism and love of country,” Alaa Abdul-Halim Mohammed Marzouk told reporters.
For you ‘Better Call Saul’ fans, there is indeed a Baylor Street in Lubbock, but there is no house or building number of 8783.
It is regarded as one of the most depraved films ever – a ‘shockumentary’ full of autopsies, plane crashes and executions. Why was Faces of Death so influential? And does its director have any regrets?
