Ahhh, good morning and Happy Tuesday, readers. Here's hoping this humble little daily post finds all of you as excited as is humanly possible. It's another great day to be alive, and why not celebrate it with a little time-out to read a bit about the people, places, and things that the day as special as it is, hmm?
In case you missed it, I put up a post just moments ago on behalf of a little 'something something' that's presently funding on IndieGoGo.com: Warren Speed's Vampire Nuns does look like the kind of thing that both might produce a few laughs along with a few screams. As happens with independent storytellers from time-to-time, they can use a little extra help from folks out there reading along on the Information Superhighway; and those of you who can help out are encouraged to check out his little stop ... which can be accessed right here. As is always the case, there's absolutely no requirement but as I've always been a fan of talented storytelling I like to pass the word along to those of you who might be interested. Indeed, check it out at your leisure. The perk levels are EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE (unlike many others I've been sent by folks privately), so a very modest investment can go a long way in that universe.
Also ... can you belive it: Batman: The Animated Series -- one of the absolute very best animated shows to come to television ever -- turns an astonishing 31 years young today! OMG, where does time go? Seriously, folks, if you've never had the opportunity to see what some exceptional storytelling in animated form looks like, then you're missing something that's top notch. I can't tell you how much I love that incarnation of Batman -- in fact, I've always argued it's the unquestioned highpoint in Batman mythology -- and you should stop what you're doing right now to check it. I don't care what your boss says. Screw him. Tell him you owe it to the world of art. Put it on the TV in the breakroom, and introduce all of your coworkers to it.
Lastly but never leastly (is that a word?): today is also reknowned for the birth of Raquel Welch. (Sadly, this lovely lady is no longer with us.) Welch knew more than a thing or two about turning heads, and she wasn't afraid to traffic in the circles of genre entertainment, either, which was a huge plus for the start of her cinematic career. She burst onto the scene as one of the technician miniaturized and sent on the mission of a medical emergency in 1966's Fantastic Voyage; and she followed that up with little more than patches of fur covering her lady parts in 1966's One Million Years B.C. for Hammer Films. To top those off, she also paid two visits to the world of TV's SciFi/Sitcom Mork & Mindy for good measure.
As for anything else associated to September 5th? Well, ask ... and you shall receive ...
As always, folks, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing on the World Wide Web ... and live long and prosper!
