Who doesn't like cartoons, especially Fleisher toons? This one is Barnacle Bill from 1930 co-starring Bimbo and an early version of Betty Boop.
'Barnacle Bill' was a baudy tune, listen to this 1928 version by Bix Beiderbeck which is, like the cartoon version, cleaned up considerably although you can clearly hear the background guys singing, "Barnacle Bill the shitter" during the second chorus. Naughty!

DEAR FOX NETWORK
Speaking of FOX - they have a new series coming called Somebody's Gotta Go - where employees at a struggling small company (15-20 employees) get together to vote someone off their downsized island. You think I just make this stuff up, don't you? You would hope...

I STOLE THE TV
Edwin Janzen asks: "I had a question about that old TV show from the sixties, 'The Mighty Hercules.' Since you've devoted a page on your website to the show, I thought you might be able to answer it.
"Recently I bought three old, used VHS tapes of 'Herc' episodes off of Amazon -- comes to about 30 episodes, total. Wikipedia's entry on the show lists no less than 128 episodes that were created. Yet, I've searched Amazon, YouTube and other places for the 98 episodes I don't have and have come up with nothing. Do you have any idea where a person might find those 98 lost episodes? They must surely be archived somewhere?"
Check out this just-released trailer for True Blood Season One on DVD coming to stores May 19th.
I just rented The Lost Room on DVD, it's a Sci-Fi Channel program and it's quite trippy with a sharp concept - a guy gets hold of a motel key that opens any door and allows him to exit anywhere he likes. That sets him off on a journey to find all of the super-charged objects in the motel room that serves as a cosmic way station. That's a lousy description, you should see it yourself if you're into well done science fiction. If you're willing to suspend your common sense a few times at the start it's well worth it. The show gets better as it goes along with a superb cast that includes Kevin Pollock, Julianna Margolis, Peter Krause and the guy who played the union boss on The Wire season 2.

Wait I Know This features Space Ghost Coast to Coast star George Lowe this (Sunday) evening at 7:00. The player is on your left - but you may have to use the link above the player, that widget seems to move around in time and space more often than Sam Beckett.
Here's an article on people who have their own Star Trek captain's chair in their homes. First the home version of the Lost in Space Robot, now this?
I was directed to this fantastic tune by John Brannen because we may be doing a film together. I don't take to new music easily, I usually have to hear a song a few times before it grows on me. In fact, all of my favorite albums I hated when I first heard them. But every once in a while a song grabs me and this one did just that. 'Boom, Baby, Boom' by John Brannen:
