Luke Perry, RIP

In point of fact, I never watched even one episode of 90210. I worked just down the road from 90210 for several years, but never had much of an interest in prime time soap operas. *shrug*

Never saw 90210 either, but I liked him in Jeremiah.

Only thing I saw him in was a couple of B westerns...And Family Guy.

Actor Jan-Michael Vincent's death was announced yesterday. He died on Feb 10 of cardiac arrest.

Anytime I think of him or hear his name, I think of Damnation Alley.

The last time I saw Jan Michael Vincent was on some talk show and he was hammered and was talking gibberish and had an argument with the host. may have been letterman. Hollywood chews up another one.

For me, it's The Mechanic. One of my all-time favorite films.

I haven't see the movie but it's weird that in the clip, the black actor is wearing a shirt with a flag patch sewn on his sleeve upside down.

A possible explanation: flying the US flag upside down has long been recognized as a distress signal.

I've seen protesters do that.

Just some FYI:

Attachment 66714

The vehicle featured in Damnation Alley was not the spawn of special effects. It was called the Landmaster, and it's a real genuine vehicle. Well, it was made for the movie, but it's real. Motorvation was supplied by 390 Ford motor, and it steered by articulation, like a large tractor or earth mover.

The Landmaster had twelve wheels , and all were driven, but only eight wheels were on the ground at any given time, and the three-wheel (on each corner) assemblies could rotate around the centerline to get the Landmaster over rocks/boulders/debris. It even made a 25-foot jump with no damage. Try that in your 10 ton amphibious-surviving-the-end-of-the-world vehicle.

Yep, I said amphibious. It goes on/in water, and will float half-full of water, and can be fully submerged with no worries.


In 2016, the Landmaster was moved to Gene Winfield's Custom Shop on Sierra Highway between Rosamond, California and Mojave, California. It can be seen from the road and is open to public viewing during the week.

Legendary drummer Hal Blaine, 90


Well he was the drummer on every recording made. Just click anywhere in this video and you'll find a solid piece of pop culture. 150 top ten hits, 40 #1 hits.
