New pic on DA

The guest from hell--you know, the guy who just won't leave, well after a party is over? Well, two women encounter a guy who *REALLY* overstays his welcome in my latest Poser picture, which you can see right here.

Gerald's Game and Ryta

I remember when Gerald's Game first came out (and I still have my first edition hardcover copy), and at the time I thought if they would ever make this into a movie, that Michelle Pfeiffer would star. But back then I had pretty much imagined every famous female star cuffed to the bed in King's story.

But Carla Gugino got cast, and I'm glad she did. The book was written before the advent of cell phones and voice-activated home "servants" like Alexa. I'm wondering how the film will deal with this--if at all; it could be a period piece where they don't have this tech. It premieres on Netflix on September 29, so we'll see.

In other news, the writing on the new Ryta book is going well. It depends on the overall length, but I'm a third of the way through it and still plugging along, no matter what. For the latest news on the newest Ryta book, you can keep it right here.

My new (old) favorite song

These guys have done a heavy metal version of Toto;'s Africa, and it is glorious. The video is also very funny. The female backup singer is very cute, too. I always liked the Toto version of this, but this my new favorite version of this song.

Jake and the bed-bound damsel

Doran Clark stars in the Body And Soul episode of the TV series Jake and the Fatman as an undercover cop whose cover is blown. Jake comes to the rescue, and finds her like this.

The bad guys tied Doran to a bed barefoot and in a nightgown. Jake immediately sets to untying her.

It's a very short scene, but one of my favorites, and not because she's barefoot. Dressed as she is, Clark almost looks like a classic fairy tale princess. A good damsel in distress scene overall. You can watch/download it right here.

Harry Dean Stanton

The character actor Harry Dean Stanton died today at 91. If you've been watching movies over the last forty five years or so, you'd probably seen Stanton in one or two things. He was probably best known as Brett from the first Alien movie, but he was also in Escape From New York, Paris, Texas, The Godfather II, Cool Hand Luke, as well as the TV show Big Love, and many more.

I'll always fondly remember him as Brett, from Alien. ("Right.") RIP.

Another new pic on DA

Just because a woman is in bed doesn't necessarily mean that she's asleep, as my latest Poser picture shows right here.

On this day in Space 1999

September 13, 1999 was the day when the moon was blown out of Earth's orbit--at least according to Space: 1999. The scene above depicts the actual blow-out, so to speak. I watched and loved this series as a kid back when it first aired. And despite its corniness, I still enjoy it today. Happy Space 1999 Day.
