"Hey, I'm smokin' in any jacket." - Sam Malone, "Cheers"

mvd1OK, I’m being totally honest here. Sure, I can use Google, Wikipedia, and the imdb like a pro, and I knew one day I’d get around to it. But at the time that I met Mamie Van Doren at the Hollywood Show on April 20, 2013, the only thing I knew for sure about her was that there was no way that Mamie Van Doren was her real name. And yet I was perfectly willing to shell out $20 to get a signed photo of her that included a free photo op with both Carolyn and me. Why, you might ask? Because her name sounded so exotic and familiar that I just knew she had to be somebody. Read the rest of this entry »

Tabitha X 2

April 7th, 2015

tab1I had long looked forward to meeting Erin Murphy, who was best known as the actress who played Tabitha from 1966-1972 on the TV sitcom Bewitched. And when I finally did, it was no disappointment because she was every bit as nice as she was beautiful.

Mallrat

March 31st, 2015

london3It’s a shame that Jeremy London hasn’t done more professionally that has interested me, because he’s actually done quite a bit. I was never into I’ll Fly Away, Party of Five, or 7th Heaven TV series, but I now they’ve all had quite a following. My interest in him was pretty much restricted to his role in Mallrats in which he had second billing as T.S. Quint. He also starred in the epic Gods and Generals, which although generally panned by critics, is a massive prequel to the acclaimed Gettysburg. Yet it still goes back to Mallrats, and that’s why I made sure to meet him when he appeared at the Chiller Theatre show in Parsippany, New Jersey, on October 27, 2012. Read the rest of this entry »
