In one regard it seemed like a pretty odd idea to have a reunion of actors from this obscure entry in the Halloween series at the HorrorHound Weekend on September 11, 2016. But then again, I ended up being glad that they chose go with these players from the sixth entry, The Curse of Michael Myers. Even though it’s just the type of movie that I can’t honestly remember whether I’ve ever seen it or not, the cast was made up of a pretty diverse group of performers who, if I didn’t want them necessarily for their participation in this, had done some other interesting things. And they all ended up being such lovely people that I’ve now actually anxious to visit – or re-visit, whichever the case may be – this film.  Read the rest of this entry »

There’s a period of my life that rarely comes up any more. I’ve been a music lover, no, music adorer since I was a young kid, spinning record after record on my old portable record player.

That’s how it usually  happens. But I work in complete reverse. The celebrity has already achieved this fame and as I browse their filmography, I start at the beginning after breezing back their current starring roles and look for the little obscure appearances that they may have done in some of my favorite TV shows or films that have stood the test of time.

Severance Paid

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

I feel like I might be getting redundant as I talk about my ever-evolving hobby of ‘celebrity collecting.’ Many things have changed in the last ten years, including tolerance of higher prices, willingness to bypass autographs in favor of photos, less stipulations on whom I get (meaning they didn’t have to do quite as much as once required before forking over money), and in this case, adding people to my list whom I had skipped in the past. Joan Severance is one such example of the latter example. Twice before I had seen her at events and twice I had skipped her.  Read the rest of this entry »
