marcycloud: Hi GS!

Rush: YES, GS!

Godwinshelley2: TCM ran a short about John Ford and it had some nice clips of Karloff in “Lost Patrol” by Ford

Rush: We get Mr. Karloff at least three times each year…FOUR times this year, as “Opera” was our Halloween movie!

Rush: NICE, GS!

Matt1: Always a nice detour

Nothere: The Lost patrol shuld have dropped breadcrumbs.

Godwinshelley2: AND today I managed to “crank” (knitted on a Circular Sock Knitting Machine from 1918) my very first SOCK

Rush: NT: πŸ™‚

Rush: Interesting, GS!

Rush: Really!

Dona: Fun GS

Nothere: Well I would congradulate you God, but sadly you chose socks. One is no good.

Rush: It would be fun to watch that make a sock!

Godwinshelley2: It was made in my mothers home town – in the year of the (Spanish Flu) plague – and I bought it in 2020 (Covid)

Rush: 4 minutes to go…

LongshoreAngel & Foxx has joined this room

Mike n Rachel in DC: Are we holding at the “opening gong?”

Rush: Longshore? A new profession, Angel?

Godwinshelley2: I

Nothere: Don’t call him chief.

Godwinshelley2: I’m at the crossfade from gong to title

Nothere: Wil Grant Williams grant us anything?

Rush: This one is from 1938….

Rush: 10 years before “Docks of New Orleans.”

Godwinshelley2: My folks used to get Colliers magazine and our encyclopedias were Colliers editions

Rush: Maybe a land grant?

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: “Longshoreman” left overt from The Docks of New Orleans. No time to change it—i’ve been racing around bringing plants inside, with sudden frost anticipated tonight!

Rush: Or…a General Grant?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Karloff gets a bit of a break–Wong is an Oxford graduate, so the “Chinese” aspect of the character can be more subtle than Chan

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Fox is up to his Withers.

Rush: I get it, now, Angel!

Nothere: Encyclopedias?Theres an ancient artifact.

Rush: The “dock”.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: The NEW NEW NEW GoldGateBr, yes, Rush?

Godwinshelley2: If you want to see him in “full Chinese” – check out Mask of Fu Manchu or West of Shanghai

Dona: Yes nt, but used them as a kid

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: I order all my crap from Dayton.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes GS. His Fu Manchu is a hoot.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Bela woulda been great in this role. Or Chico Marx.

Nothere: HeyI’m not knocking Donna. In som ways their beter than Wikipedia.

Rush: VAST difference, Angel! πŸ™‚

Godwinshelley2: Mike – I wanted to ask if you had seen/heard the “Dead South” song “In Hell I’ll Be in Good Company”

Dona: In lots of ways they are better just not as up to date.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: She could build up SOME biceps with that phone.

Rush: Perry White!

Rush: I forgot he is in this one!

Matt1: Foo!

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: A New York minute?

Rich Maine: The chief!

Nothere: Don’t call me chef.

Rush: And, yees…Lee Tung Foo!

Nothere: or Chief even:)

Rich Maine: Where’s BB?

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Sherlock Holmes lived in this same building in another movie.

Mike n Rachel in DC: I have not, GS.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Every parrot is a future ex-parrot.

Godwinshelley2: Check it out – there was a video of a music professor watching it – it was fun

Rush: True, Angel.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Chairman Mao!!

Nothere: Now theres a series Detectiv apartments. 10 famous detectives live in the same building and their wacky adventure.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Perry White, right?

Godwinshelley2: yes

Rush: Wong holds the cigarette European style.

Rush: Yes, Angel.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Notty, INGENIOUS! Simply INGENIOUS! Why, Moriarty might not have thought of it! Call our lawyers!

Rush: Mr. White always seems to look the same to me….all the way to the Superman TV shiow!

Dona: Agreed Rush

Rich Maine: Yes rush…no aging

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Rush: but for cigarette burns, Flash Gordon might have used the same tunic.

Nothere: So who has the superior robe. Chan or Wong?

Rush: John Hamilton

Rush: Good question!

Godwinshelley2: the loungewear in Chan films seem to have more design in them

Rush: Similarity here!

Rich Maine: Gowns by Edith head

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: If you’re gonna smother a duck, you’re gonna get double-billed here.

Rush: The near-abduction!

Rush: Built-in bib for lunch at Italian restaurants.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Rich, did you as a kid snicker as i did at Edith Head’s name?

mda19083: the driver switch

Nothere: Don’t mind us. we totally aren’t trying tolook suspicious for the late murder. Uhm mudding. I meant mudding.

Rush: The partnership agreement.

Rich Maine: Oh yes Angel, along with Dick Tracy

Rush: Another similarity!

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: She can smuggle out plenty of inventory in that bodice.

Mike n Rachel in DC: So, when…I mean “if”…you die we the all the money, right?

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Rich, you ARE a delinquent!

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Additional claws!

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Preverts will revert.

Rush: πŸ™‚

mda19083: we had that clause last week

Rich Maine: I’ve gotten nicer in old age

Rush: Yes, MDA.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: mda:     

Rush: I like to think I have, too….!

Nothere: “Your a crook” :Says you poopyhead.”

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: He’s early cuz he took the grain elevator.

Mike n Rachel in DC: No problem. Just call Superman

Rush: “And don’t call me CHIEF!!!!”

Dona: Street

Nothere: Kent get the story.

Rich Maine: Lock the door

Rush: πŸ™‚

Nothere: Your not CLark Kent, he wears glases.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: What a perfect Fascist pose!! Mr.Dayton is ready to take Saskatchewan!

Mike n Rachel in DC: That is one fierce ruffle on her dress

mda19083: Mike and Angel – I think Hugh Jass is in tonight’s movie

Rush: There is one big difference in this film as to how the death device is activated.

Rich Maine: Dayton or Lafontaine?

Matt1: Catches crumbs, Mike

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ah. For women who can’t grow a beard, perhaps? πŸ™‚

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Did Chuck Barris host The Dayton Game?

Nothere: Firt we take Walla Wlla then the world.

Rush: In the Chan version, they baid $500 for the formula.

Rush: paid

Nothere: Ready Matt

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: All brakes were bad in the ’30s.

Matt1: <tin can>

Rich Maine: Yes the can!


Nothere: Why did you kill Bates? I figured it would make m rate.

Rush: The tin can of death.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: (14:00)??????

Mike n Rachel in DC: Nice to see a black can, Rush. Appropriately ominous.

Rich Maine: Did ur can grow rush?

Nothere: 1430 here

Rush: 14:15…

Matt1: Upgrade?

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Wong brought his own tin can.

Rush: 14:30

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: An actual Appointment With Death.

Nothere: Made in China?

Rush: What ISN’T?

Nothere: Tetrigine?

Rush: Perhaps!

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: He had different pockets when he was outside.

Rush: Yes?

Mike n Rachel in DC: So why is Wong in the Physics department? Chemistry folks on strike, perhaps?

Nothere: Uhm guys would you stop pointing the fre at people.

Rich Maine: One of the best blowers in SF

Mike n Rachel in DC: The glass-blowing scene is one of the highlights of this movie

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Hmmmmmmm.

Rush: When Wong works with glass?

mda19083: was he listening to the radio?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rich: 

Nothere: Oh please Rich I can see right through their glass blowing rethoric.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: The guy could totally wing this. In fact, Wong could wing it. Nobody knows the original glass, right?

Rush: Chemical analysis.

Rich Maine: πŸ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: By Physicists…multi-talented

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: OH, that potash stuff AGAIN. They started throwing that potash jive at me when i was 8i.

Rush: 65 mm?

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: when i was 8.

Rush: That would be BIG.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: If anything happens to this glass, it’ll be BREAKING BAD.

Nothere: Give it up your still not Clark Kent.

Mike n Rachel in DC: 3-4 inches I think, Rush

Rush: Mr. Wong figured it out faster than Chan did, it seems.

Rush: he’s already made some glass globe mock-ups.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Buncha tough mugs. Get ’em coffee.

Rush: πŸ™‚

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: No, the gun was a Colt.

Nothere: Careful. Cross me and my ruffles will attack.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ruffles is up next

mda19083: tetragene?

Rich Maine: Mrs Swenson!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Rush: Mopping the hall outside?

Mike n Rachel in DC: Street is very agitato

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: Speaking of PLANTS, Fox & me gotta run out to the porch & bring in all the plants from there. Please throw a can for each of us in event of any casualties, or formalities.

Rich Maine: Of course, she cleans up bodies

Rush: OH1 I was thinking of the lady in “The Scarlet Clue”!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Nothere: Me answr your questions intelligently? Place your bets.

Rush: If he rolled the glass globe, it would have broken.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Don’t miss a thing? Mr Wong is a detective…

Nothere: Actually that’s not a bad idea Rush. Good carpet. Just place it near the desk, and wait for someone to step on it. Sure you might get ne or two you aren’t aiming for, but thems the drawback of poiion ga.

Dona: Those two are slimmy

Mike n Rachel in DC: Meisel of Bavaria

Rich Maine: I like the Colonel Marsh series s on amazon with Karloff, good mystery

Rush: A whiner…

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: She’s missing Arthur Godfrey. That’s why she’s upset.

Rush: πŸ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: Wong’s globes are bigger than Chan’s

Nothere: Of course Wong solves the case faster than Chan. He cheats and uses Mickey th ystery solving parrot.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: You mean “worked”.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: He could neck that bird’s ring.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx: “Europa!”, he thinks.

Nothere: A Baron in a 1930′ movie. Arest him. We’ll find out what he id later.

Rush: You got me, Angel!

Rich Maine: Another one down

Rush: “In that case, I’d like filet mignon, glace de creme, and a bottle of champagne…”

Rush: kenny being the friend from NC?

Hounder: Nothing’s really changing for mom.

Rush: As long as she’s remaining stable, I suppose that’s pretty good?

Rush: Does your mom know him?

Rush: from earlier times?

Hounder: Stable isbetter than the alternative. I’llcall it a win.

LongshoreAngel & Foxx has left this room

Rush: It must be really tough on you.

Rush: i can only imagine if my Mom had lived longer.

Hounder: I won’t keep you rush I just wanted to check in and let you know things were ok.

Rush: She would have gone in that direction.

Hounder: Hard on both of us but it is what it is.

Rush: Well, my pleasure to continue with you.

Rush: take care…

Hounder: I think your mom was the lucky one. I can’t imagine how scary the world must be for my mom

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Perhaps.

Hounder: Thanks. See you in 2 weeks
