OMG!!!! SAM SHERMAN IS STILL DOING HIS THING!

If there’s one good point to this pandemic, it’s the fact that the drive-in has become popular (kinda) again. I’ve never been to a drive-in–that I can remember (there was probably some time in 1976 or so that I was briefly in attendance.)

Who is Sam Sherman and why am I so excited at hearing about this? Welp, Sam Sherman and Al Adamson were the two Is in Independent International Pictures (I probably don’t have that totally right, but who cares?) The point is that this (Sherman) is the man who wanted the Three Stooges (Howard, Sitka, and DeRita) for what would become the Ritz Brothers final film Blazing Stewardesses. There’s STILL A LINK to the Three Stooges that’s still active and doing what they do best!

Anyhoo, what he’s doing now is working with the good folks at https://driveinsanity.com/ to go back to the glory days of yesteryear (late 60s early 70s) with what is the most WTF? of the “vs.” movies: Frankenstein vs. Dracula (1971). Imagine seeing this at a pop up drive up theatre! Let’s all go to the movies!

How’d I almost forget about THIS?!

Think about this: the Three Stooges outlasted the Beatles, the Zombies, were still actively performing during the moon landing…and may have watched the very last episode of ST: TOS–“Turnabout Intruder.”

(Thinks about how terrible the episode was…)

I hope not!

No nerd worth their salt should ever forget that today, June 3, 1969, that the last Star Trek episode, “Turnabout Intruder” was aired. If you’d like to see William Shatner at his Shattnerist (on Star Trek, at least!) see this episode.

Think of it–in 1969, the Three Stooges were still touring, the moon landing was little more than a month away, and a couple of months later, a certain Family would be on everyone’s minds.  Interesting time, when you look back on it as history.  As everyday living, I imagine that it was pretty much like today.

I HAVE RISEN!!!!

Yes, folks! It’s the first of May and I’ve decided to rise from the grave of working from home, being cheezed off that I couldn’t work from home because my computer was too old (even though it seemed to work fine the first week), asked for a laptop, was told that I wouldn’t get one, then had to schlep to work to get the damn desktop I asked for SIX MONTHS AGO!

This was supposed to be the launch date of the all new Six Degrees of Stoogeration (where have you heard that before?) but well…it just didn’t happen. Neither did my plan to start with the wonderful “Flesh Feast” or “The Big Cube.”  They’re on my list, I’ve watched them, but mostly I’ve been binge watching “The Oblongs” (remember that?) and other cartoons from the late 90s/early 2000s (when I was young…)

Anyway, happy May Day! Enjoy a Stooge photo!You Nazty Spy 2
