About a week ago I had a looksee at this poor neglected hallway of my internet presence and was astonished to notice that it had been close to a year since the last post on here. So I thought it would be amusing to wait the week and have the next post show up exactly a year later. Give or take twelve hours.
"Detectives on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" - April 22, 1993
Billions of years ago when I was young I spent half a year saving up for a book called "The ITV Encyclopedia of Adventure" by Dave Rogers. In those days before the internet, it cost $55 to get an import copy of a book that had a list price of £9.95. This book was close to 600 pages of wonders, television programs that I was quite familiar with (The Avengers, The Prisoner) shows that I had heard whispers of, but had no hope of ever seeing in my lifetime (Ace of Wands, Sapphire and Steel) and finally a huge number of programs that I had never heard of. It was like an entire other world was opening up. All of these things had been made and broadcast. Millions of people had watched them. And, of course, many of them had been deleted long ago. Lost forever before I had even a clue that they existed in the first place.
My heavens I poured over that book. I learned all about Man in a Suitcase and Special Bran…
That's a good question! I've been thinking "Zenius," but I suppose that Keeler was thinking of "Genius."
I don't understand the name of your blog, what does it mean? I drop that info twice, here and here.
Why do you need three blogs?
This is my main blog. I decided to have a separate blog for Doctor Who because I thought that I would be able to make posts without having to explain to non-Doctor Who literate readers what I was talking about. Ants in Your Plants of 1941 was set up when Blogger was migrating to Beta and I was afraid that I was going to be shut out of my primary blog. I'm keeping it for things like the 1912 project that can take advantage of the multiple labels.
