Today in History

In 1791, Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute is performed for the first time in Vienna.

Are you a fan of Mozart?

Thirty Days of MFU

Day 13 – Favorite recycled set/prop/location -

Oh, boy, I never really pay much attention to such things, although I did notice that they used the 'Star Trek' rock quite a few times. I guess that would make it that ST used the MFU rock quite a few times.

And Griffith Observatory - I noticed that one a few times and always with fondness.

Random Friday

Have you ever dated someone who you later regret dating?

Do you feel younger or older than your current age?

What do you recycle at your house, if anything?

Today in History

In 1513, Spanish explorer Vasco Nunez de Balboa discovers the Pacific Ocean. Soon after, he would discover hot tubs and long weekends.

In 1932, a five-day work week is established for General Motors workers. It would soon become an industry standard.

Would you rather have a five-day, eight hours a day week or a four-day, ten hours a day week?

Thirty Days of MFU

Day 12 – Least favorite innocent –

Oh, man, where do I begin? There are so, so many.

Cher tops my list, though. She walked through the part as if she were stoned, completely disinterested or both. I have seen better acting from a street lamp.

Just wondering

How close is your nearest convenience store?

What's the strangest thing you've seen on public transportation?

Do you have a pepper or salt mill?

Sad NCIS News

Gary Glasberg died today.

He was a writer/producer of the NCIS world. Taking over a lot of responsibility when Donald Bellisario left several years ago, and heavily involved in the New Orleans spin-off. I can't say I pay loads of attention to all the behind the scenes people, but my brother does, and as such Glasberg is a household name in their house.

It was sad to hear of his passing, especially at such a young age. Only 50. As my brother put it, when Bellisario was 50 he was still making Baa Baa Black Sheep. Which is to say, before Magnum PI, and before Jag, and before NCIS. That's some perspective. Glasberg filled THOSE shoes and well, and Glasberg created a lot of good TV, but it's quite a shame to think how much more he could have shaped the entertainment landscape had he had the time.

More info here and lots of outpouring from cast, crew, and fans on social media.

Thirty Days of MFU

Day 11 – Favorite innocent

Zohra Lampert as Kay Lorrison


Kipp Hamilton as Lavina Brown

Both of them had spirit, fight, and they weren't going to let the men from UNCLE get away with anything.

Again nods to Lisa's Frame Capture library
