(Theme From) Shaft

Back from my weekend. I hope everyone else made it back safely, too.

On Friday, I got word at the last minute that Bob wasn't going to be there. So Tracy sat in one more time.

Bob swears up and down that he WILL be there this Friday.


Watched three Doctor Who stories - The Keeper Of Traken, Logopolis, and Castrovalva. These three stories comprise the change-over from Tom Baker to Peter Davison.

There were some interesting items in the extras section including interviews (filmed in 2007) with Baker, Davison, the writers, directors, and other folks. The big surprise was Matthew Waterhouse, who played Adric. First check the picture in that link. Then click here to see him now.

Quite a change.


We lost Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes this weekend.

I must admit to not knowing too much about either man. I'm more familiar with Hayes' work on South Park (and the hypocrisy for his leaving).

Let's hope Hayes didn't sign up for the billion-year contract, or he really will get the "Shaft".


Here's something interesting - a Mexican border city is fining US citizens for buying extra fuel at Mexican prices. Evidently it's fine if you fill your own vehicle, but you can't bring extra containers and fill them as well.

You mean they expect US to follow THEIR rules?


Okay, enough. I have things to do.

Only three more weeks of the summer season at work.

Be seeing you.
