R.I.P. Roger Moore

R.I.P. Roger Moore (1927-2017)

While I liked Sean Connery in the iconic role, he was the "rough-edged" James Bond;  Moore added the debonair, suave quality Connery did not possess.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

In the now-iconic 1966 animated TV special Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Boris Karloff was the narrator and voice of the Grinch, but didn't sing its most famous song, You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.  The singer was Thurl Ravenscroft, arguably best known as being the voice of Tony The Tiger from 1953-2004.

Squidbillies Theme Song

While I've done a few reviews of movies and TV shows, I keep meaning to do more, but to be honest, they take a lot of time and especially if I want them to be truly original and worth reading.

I used to watch Squidbillies when I had cable, then thought the show had been cancelled, so I was surprised to see the newest episodes online. I've been d/l them to watch on my tablet and while it's not as funny now as it was when I first started watching it, it's still good for a grin now 'n then.

My favorite part is the theme song; this one is done by Billy Jo Shaver and is, IMHO, the best of all the renditions.  The lyrics match how I feel much of the time these days.

While I'm WAY behind on writing reviews, it's given me an idea for an easier topic/label to start doing: Theme Songs.
