  1. Thanks for posting this, Bob. Ofra's voice was (and of course still is) riveting.
  2. I believe that's actually Thurl Ravenscroft singing. (Thurl provided the "Tony The Tiger" voice for Kelloggs cereal commercials, among other things.) I jumped to a conclusion, Karloff did the narration. But the song still rules. True!

  4. Wow, that takes me back. I *loved* Panzerblitz & Panzer Leader as a teen. I haven't played since my college years in the early '80s though.

  6. I'm sorry to hear this. My partner & I lived in Lakewood from 1999 until last December; it sounds like we picked a good time to leave. Although we never had such a problem as you described, it was obvious to us that the area was no longer as stable as we used to think it was. Nevertheless I enjoyed my years in Lakewood and will remember it with fondness.
  7. Thanks. ALfonso Chris - Provocative idea! Anyone know how to find bestseller lists from the past so one could actually ask the "whatever happened to that book" question about bestsellers from the 1950s? Alfonso A Google search provided these, among others: http://www3.isrl.uiuc.edu/~unsworth/course...lers/best50.cgi http://www.hawes.com/no1_nf_d.htm Other than Atlas the only novels from 1957 on that first list that I've even heard of are Peyton Place and On The Beach, and I kinda doubt that either of these changed anyone's life as AS has done. (I did read Day Of Infamy from the NYT list as a teen, but the same comment applies.) Alfonso, I wonder what you had intended to say...? Just thanks. Alfonso Ah. You're welcome.
  8. Right; On The Beach was on an optional reading list in a class I took when I was 13 or 14; I passed it over in favor of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, IIRC.

  11. Indeed. When I re-read the trilogy after seeing the films I merely skimmed the whole interlude-with-Bombadil section, thinking it a dull digression. I didn't miss it in the films at all.
  12. I thought Casino Royale was loads of fun. Daniel Craig makes an excellent Bond - hard, cynical, driven, and with an undercurrent of personal dysfunction that makes his suave public face look interestingly false. Until I saw this film Sean Connery was, as far as I was concerned, The Only Bond Who Counted; but I would love to see Mr. Craig in further Bond films.
  13. Thanks. I've never known any Objectivists in daily life; I have no idea what their actual attitudes towards these things are. Certainly a term like "swinging" is loaded language, but had the article in question called it polyamory I'd still have said to myself, "yes, and that's one place where she really screwed things up for herself and her movement." And it's a funny thing - having just typed that, I felt a sort of rush of compassionate affection for this woman I never met - as if knowing about her mistake drives home to me her humanity, makes her life more immediate in some way. That'll want some thinking about on my part.
