...after my feelings of abandonment by "patful" have healed. Ouch. :cry: But I'd be willing to bet that things have calmed down a great deal since I left, no? Our old friend knew how to get my goat, and without me there to complain, he's bored. I thought my departure would be for the greater good. ...

But Kermit highlights a particular suspicion I've been having for some time - that these guys don't really pick their OWN films. I just have a really hard time buying the fact that the same films get picked over and over...and they are all ones that TCM just LOVES to show...and actually DOES show u...

I guess this means that we have to cancel the wake. Damn. Far be it from me to stand in the way of a good party. If you all want to be Dana Andrews, I will certainly do my best Gene Tierney and stay away for a while longer while you hit the liquor cabinet. (Did you get a nice black wreath for the d...

Thanks For The Kind Words

Hello all - Thanks Moira - and everyone else that has chimed in - for the recognition and for the good wishes. They are very heart-warming and I appreciate them all. After this stint as moderator, I will probably pass into "Challenger Emeritus" status - still participating but declining to be voted ...

Moira- Thanks for posting "Office At Night". The painting was recently loaned out to a museum in NYC and the NYTimes wrote a piece analyzing the painting. In the commentary, it discussed just which figure in the painting has the "power" in the depicted relationship. And whether the painting depicted...

Hello Moraldo - How funny that WB cut out the Roosevelt number but left the Minstrel Show intact. Did you know jondaris and I "bonded" over this film? http://silverscreenoasis.com/oasis/viewtopic.php?t=638 http://forums.tcm.com/jive/tcm/thread.jspa?threadID=78113 And not to dampen your excitement - ...

Whatever the motvation behind these changes, the "Oasis" sure looks good. "It's stylin'! "

Programming Challenge Voting

Just wanted to post this observation from 'patful' in the TCM Forums about the voting in the most recent edition of the TCM Programming Challenge - "I think a lot of the people that voted in the past are currently AWOL. Maybe they'll show up to vote?" Three of the participants in this edition of the...

Lynn is correct. A poster got "hot under the collar" about a derogatory comment about Fox News. That wouldn't be so bad (acceptable, actually) but the response was ugly with unnecessary name-calling and profanity. This post "disappeared" this am. Later, the poster took offense to his post "disappear...

Jon - Funnily, Wonder Bar is one of those films that IS "relegated to the wee hours" on TCM. I know when I recorded it a few years ago it was during a late night presentation on TCM - like the one this past week. Hopefully it won't be another two or three years before it appears on the schedule agai...
