The game plan was to get back into extreme blogging (little term I picked up from rapping with the kids to find out where their heads were at) once I relocated to WordPress in October. Sadly, this feverishly diabolical scheme soon vanished in a puff of smoke, surrendering to multiple factors such as outside projects,… Continue reading The state of the blog
Since I made the decision in August to move Thrilling Days of Yesteryear from Blogger/Blogspot to a new platform at WordPress, I’ve managed to transfer over 1,000 posts…and believe me, no one is more surprised than your humble narrator at the level of activity that represents. I’ve stated in this space on many an occasion… Continue reading “Most bands don’t even last fourteen months let alone fourteen years…” – Peter Steele, musician

I’ve been working like a madman (mahd, I tell you!) transferring much of the content from TDOY’s soon-to-be-boarded-up Blogspot… Continue reading Crime will not pay…not for a while, anyway…
Sister Kat and Nephew Davis have come and gone, and their visit was both a tonic for Mom and a big surprise for Dad (Mom and I decided not to tell him of their pending arrival, and he was positively floored as a result). I’m glad they could spend some time with us, but their… Continue reading We’ve lost our lease!
Bob and Carol Sterling (David Bruce, June Vincent) have bought a one-way ticket to Splitsville. The two of them are getting a divorce, mostly due to those petty annoyances that are known to drive wedges into movie marriages; he has a chain-smoking habit, she munches on crackers…in bed. But of course, Mr. and Mrs. Sterling are still… Continue reading Grey Market Cinema: Honeymoon Lodge (1943)
