Rush has joined this room

Matt1: Hello Rush!

Rush: Good evening, Matt and Tenman!

Rush: How are you both tonight?

Matt1: Hope you both had a good week?

Rush: Hard to complain, really.

Matt1: It’s like the movie Grounghog Day

Rush: We are all healthy.

Rush: Yes!

Matt1: But, good, thnxโ€ฆ.u?

Rush: We take each day as it comes…

Matt1: I think they will begin easing things up a bit here in FL this week, so we’re hopeful

Rush: That sounds GREAT, Matt.

Matt1: Baby steps

Rush: I have my doubts as far as CA is concerned.

Matt1: It willgoing back to Disney though feel off going out to dinner or

Matt1: wow, that was off

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Rush: That’s okay, Matt!

Rush: AH!

Rush: On TCM I see Toler!

tenman: Helloo! Just got in from Indy (3.5 hours each way) picking up a new evap cooler for my greenhouse. Long drive, but a beautiful day for it!

Matt1: When given the Ok, it will feel odd/weird going out to dinner or going to Disney the 1st couple times

Rush: “Speak Easily” (1932)

hounder has joined this room

Matt1: Hello Hounder!

Rush: Hounder~!

Rush: WELCOME!

Mike n Rachel in DC has joined this room

Mike n Rachel in DC: Good evening all!

Matt1: Heard your beaches opened!

Rush: Mike and rACHEL!

Matt1: Hello M & R!

Rush: gOOD EVENING!

hounder: hi everyone.

Rush: How’s your mother?

hounder: you’r right matt. disney will b strange for a while.

Rush: But, at least there is talk of opening things.

Rush: And that’s really good.

hounder: we’re coping. still on the coaster

Matt1: It’s what gets us by right now

Rush: Yes, hounder.

Rush: In our prayers.

Matt1: Yes

hounder: thanks rush.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hope Mickey is immune to coronavirus!

Matt1: I’m more worried about Matt 

hounder: life here is never dull.

Rush: I think mice are indeed not affected.

Rush: Yes. I’ll bet you would welcome a litttle dull for a change.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Ha. Well, humans are NOT immune, Matt. Just be careful!

hounder: they opened up the beaches here again but with restrictions.

Rush: We are.

Matt1: We should reopen this week

Rush: I have to say, the last thing I fear is the disease.

tenman: In OHio, I expect to be furloughed through May; I work in a LARGE restaurant

Rush: I fear the reaction to it more than it.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oof. Well, tenman we hope you have a return to work soon!

hounder: i’m hoping for cautious baby steps. i know many want to leap forward, but i worry about a second wave worse than the first one.

hounder: i’m sorry tenman

Rush: Tenman, I really feel for all restaurant employees.

Matt1: I can’t imagine Tenmanโ€ฆ.hang in there and hope for sooner

Rush: We try to support our local restaurants lately by taking out.

hounder: but a large restaurant will have an easier time with spacing tables than a small one won’t they?

hounder: I’ve been trying to do take out when i venture out….. which is admittedly a rare occurance

Rush: Yes, Hounder, but the trouble will be that they, too, will of necessity serve smaller gatherings.

Rush: Yes, Hounder.

Matt1: We haven’t eaten out in 6 weeks

Rush: We have just done the “take-out” routine.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Probably, hounder. But as soon as someone gets the virus when they go out to eat everyone will stay home and restaurants will be back to square one. If we mess up this reopening, it will be much harder to get things opened a second time. I hope folks know what they’re doing.

Rush: Chinese food last night.

hounder: i think i’ve done take out 2x, but have only been out 4x in 2 months

Rush: We usually don’t eat out much, but recently we’ve been doing more to help the locals.

Mike n Rachel in DC: We normally cook at home (lamb tonight!), so it hasn’t been much different here.

hounder: i totally agree matt. just heard my county in nc has their first case…… and they did a total lockdown.

Rush: Over reaction.

hounder: we don’t usually eat out, but i’ve been trying to support local when i have another reason to be out.

hounder: take out is the only option here.

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: Here too

Mike n Rachel in DC: same in DC at the moment

Rush: ll…shall we watch the serial?

Mike n Rachel in DC

Matt1: Ready!

Rush: Using the above link, please start at the 54:00 mark.

Rush: That will be the spliced equivalent of Chapter 4.

Mike n Rachel in DC: OK…all set!

Rush: Everyone paused at 54:00?

Matt1: Mine came up pre-cued

tenman: doing the serial first?

Rush: Perfect-o!

Rush: Yes.

tenman: ready

Mike n Rachel in DC: Matt apparently got the deluxe model

hounder: ready here

Rush: TM…plese use the link to “City of the Jungle” above…

Rush: Then pause it at 54:00.

tenman: oh, I’ve had it open and paused since I showed up.

Rush: Very good!

Rush: Okay…

Rush: Let’s say….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Zalabar–Capital of Pendrang…

Rush: 30 seconds…

Rush: 20 seconds…

Rush: 15…

Rush: Yes, M/R…

Rush: 10…

Rush: 5…

Mike n Rachel in DC: *tries to figure out what a jungle basin of the Himalayas might be*

Rush: GO!!!

Rush: In a lab…

Rush: Supersonic wave

Mike n Rachel in DC: bzzzzzzz

Rush: That ladder nearly got us!

tenman: wonder how expensive trashing all that stuff was

Mike n Rachel in DC: Holy sandcastle, Batman! That was close!

Rush: Pretty much, probably!

Rush: Yes, M/R!

tenman: def the sonic wavelength!!

Rush: That sounded like an aphorism.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Go check on the tablet. See if it’s as good as my iPad.

Rush: Yes, TM.

Rush: “Humanity is much more important than archaeology.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: VERY Hollywood sounding music here

Rush: YES!

Rush: Meteorium?

tenman: But I like this old timey background music

Rush: It adds to the period feel, Tenman…yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Has a little “Big Sleep” sound

Rush: Hm.

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Bogart in the house after the murder…

Rush: Yes, Mike.

Rush: Meanwhile, at the Light of Asia Casino…

Mike n Rachel in DC: …we are practicing the oboe…

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Rush: Note the back shots of Atwill?

Mike n Rachel in DC: A double?

Rush: We had one in that last scene.

Rush: Yes.

Rush: As he passed away during filming.

Mike n Rachel in DC: You tell him, sister.

Rush: He understands…

Rush: That facial shot of Atwill.

Rush: So we know that the one with the back to us is he.

tenman: I never knew this was his last appearance

Rush: Len freeman filled us in earlier.

Rush: “In the JUNGLE, it will be DIFFERENT…”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Resourceful film making

hounder: drums

Rush: “Atwill died on 22 April 1946 of pneumonia at his home in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles.[1] At the time of his death, he was filming the serial Lost City of the Jungle, playing the mastermind villain. Universal Pictures retained the footage already filmed, adapted the story to enhance the villainous role of another character, and used a double for Atwill in some scenes.”

Rush: Uh-oh…the Lion Pit!

tenman: I thought the drums were saying Timmy fell in the well…

Matt1: He’s like a can of tuna

Rush: YES!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Tonight’s menu…

Rush: !!!

Matt1

Mike n Rachel in DC: OH NO!

hounder: hi louise. toler is the chan i met first so i have to admit he’s my favorite

Louise: Happy to be on the way to Honolulu although not happy to be on a cruise ship!

Mike n Rachel in DC: This is one of the few points of conflict in our relationship: Rach = Oland; Mike = Toler

Mike n Rachel in DC: Xichenqi

Rush: Phillip Ahn.

Louise: He is such a stiff

Mike n Rachel in DC: Little Ling

Rush: Later we see him as Capt. Kong.

Rush: Yes!

Nothere: Actually bills is a legitaate thing. There are detectives whose main business is serving papers. Just not enough murders and cheating wives to go around.

Rush: Florence Ung: Ling

Nothere: One of only two films mama Chan appears.

tenman: What’s the other?

Rush: Florence Ung was also the elder daughter in “CC at ther Circus.”

hounder: jimmy you’re in over your head

Rush: Indeed!

Nothere: Holding up the ship for days. Murderers. Piff. No consideration for others.

Rush: Dr. Cardigan.

Mike n Rachel in DC: the corpus delecti is a corpse

Louise: Doc Cardigan

Rush: “Mr. Clam.”

Rush: Tommy….

Nothere: Cardigan’s hat is not a cargigan.

tenman: I so love Zucco

Rush: yes.

Rush: I agree.

tenman: that’s a cat not a baby

Louise: That baby was plastic

Rush: “Wrong flavor.”

Rush: Yes, Louise.

hounder: lol charlie should know babies arrive when they arrive by now

Rush: Chan…in two places at once!

Nothere: The Chief of detectives detects.

Rush: Yes, Hounder!

Rush: Something like $5 million today!

Rush: he could claim to read lips…

Mike n Rachel in DC: He could, Rush. He could also get a better tie. Ugh.

Rush: Tommy on his tail…

Louise: Spooky music

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Oh. Tie isn’t so bad from the front…

Rush: Like whistling in a graveyard…

Nothere: That’s it act casual. No one will wonder where the 8 year old came from.

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: Blends in like a native

Mike n Rachel in DC: shhhh!

Rush: This is an instance of a Chan son having a sibling as an assistant.

Rush: Oscar.

Louise: Cold as a mackerel?

Nothere: He needs his own movie.

Rush: That’s cold.

Nothere: Oscar the detecting lion.

Rush: “Bilge water.”

Dona: What is next week Rush?

Rush: He prefers other “spirits.”

Rush: “Charlie Chan in Reno.”

hounder: tall captain

Mike n Rachel in DC: Taxi driver…

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey. I thought this was a 20th C Fox movie, not MGM

Nothere: Stop yelling at poor Oscar. He was attacked by a ghost.

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Rush: Just borrowed “Leo”…

Mike n Rachel in DC: …on “temporary assignment”

Rush: The doctor gets around…

Louise: This is really an oddball movie with the kids so prominent

Rush: Yes.

Rush: This one sort of “re-started” the series.

hounder: it is louise

Rush: Jimmy at his “best” coming up…

Rush: Pop arrives to the amusment…

Rush: Stanislav Usepopokovski

Louise: Polish sailor

Mike n Rachel in DC: Stanisavisopopokovsky

Louise: TYSM you fake deaf person

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Rush: A silver dollar.

PaulM: or, as the Ferengi say: Even a blind man can see the glow of gold-pressed latinum

Rush: tommy rot – (Slang) Utter foolishness; nonsense.
Captain Johnson: “I’ve listened to enough of this tommy rot!”

tenman: haha! Love to see some Quark about now!

Phil: We never had a tin can for the deceased.

Rush: “EH to RH”

PaulM: i love the Ferengi “rules of aquisition”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey DV!

Dan Venture: Sorry, sorry, for missing last week. I keep spacing these things due to work-at-home.

Dan Venture: Not because I don’t like your banter.

Rush: AH! WELCOME, DV!

Rush: We are pleased that you ARE here!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Cardigan vs. Chan – Round 1.

Rush: No problem!

Dan Venture: So where are we?

PaulM: i LOVE Zucco when he has a role like this

Nothere: Bah my puns are bad enough to make anyone disappear.

Rush: We are at the 26: 50 mark….

Rush: “Charlie Chan in Honolulu.”

Phil: 27:00

Nothere: 2720

Louise: Nothere: true but we all don’t want to become invisible. You would be lonely.

Rush: This really IS a good one!

Dan Venture: And HURRAH! Charlie is actually near his real beat as a detective.

Rush: Try to imagine yourself as one of the invited at the Press Preview of this film at Graumann’s Chinese Theatre, December 16, 1938…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Saved by the bridge!

Nothere: Saved by the iceberg

Rush: Yes, DV.

Phil: 2830

Rush: Richard lane….

Dan Venture: Thanks, Phil. I was just 2 seconds off.

Rush: And…marc lawrence.

Rush: Close enough, DV!

Phil: Butcher Dagan

Nothere: n doing his actual job. Sometimes I wonder if the makers of this series remember he’s a cop.

tenman: opinion like tea leaf,,,

Mike n Rachel in DC: Mr. Chan!

hounder: sorry stevedores will not be boarding

Rush: Close, Phil…

PaulM: $300,000 was a lot of money back then

Rush: YES!

Rush: About $5 million today.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Especially with the depression…

hounder: $300,000 is still a lot of money

tenman: about 5.5 million now

Rush: I agree, Hounder!

Rush: TYSM, TM!

Phil: It wasn’t Butcher Dagan Rush?

tenman: that’s not what I thought she meant when she said she would changfe his mind aND PULLED HIM INTO A DARK CORNER LOL

tenman: sorry about caps

Rush: He was actually MacBirney the killer who was sentenced to die.

Nothere: For her sake it’s what Ms. Chan thought she meant.

Rush: BUT, he had a past connection to Butcher Degan.

Phil: Your consternation was understandable tenman!

Rush: “Heavy sugar.”

Mike n Rachel in DC: But no mustache…and no bandages in this movie, Phil. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rush: Deserted their post.

Rush: Yes, Mike!

hounder: what oscar wants oscar gets

Nothere: Or mechanical chess players. Bet he doesn’t have an alibi.

Mike n Rachel in DC: If Oscar wants to go ashore…well, Oscar is going ashore.

Rush: Lollipop?

tenman: hahaha!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Where’s Gallant Lad when we need him?

Louise: Oh I am missing our sound effects

Rush: Right!

PaulM: that monkey would be a nice little mouthful

Mike n Rachel in DC: Major animal stunts in this one

Rush: and…during the confusion….

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Nothere: And non of the animals are CG.

PaulM: during confusion…you can steal

Nothere: Oscar just wants to take a walk. So you let him take a walk.

Rush: and steAL AWAY…

Mike n Rachel in DC: Two bars of soap? Lock him up! Good thing he didn’t take any towels. Charlie HATES towel thieves.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Whose brain? Um… Abby somebody…

Nothere: I think your thinking of his older brother the kleptomaniac.

Rush: Chang Ho Ping

Louise: Have we thought yet about doing one night’s viewing as a ZOOM event? It would be fun to see everyone and we could limit comments to written chat.

Phil: This guy’s a BRAIN thief!

Nothere: Abby someone you mean. A Miss normal

Mike n Rachel in DC: Perhaps he was Ho Ping for someone else?

Rush: Louise, HonoluLOU brought that very idea up to me in an email this weekend!

Rush: I have been using Zoom to work with students.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, Louise. Rush could do a screen share for the movie…

Nothere: ZOOM event?

tenman: Zoom would be cool. We had our orchid society meeting that way!

Mike n Rachel in DC: I’ve become a Zoom expert over the last month

Rush: The only negative would be that we could not preserve the dialogue.

hounder: ok. y’all have stopped speaking english. lol

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Rush: “Teacher talk” Hounder!

Mike n Rachel in DC: We could also do the movie on Zoom and chat here…

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: OOOH. Then Rush could give us a QUIZ on the movie. (lol)

Dona: lol

hounder: i’ve heard of zoom. schools and businesses are using it. that’s everything I know about it.

Rush: I would need to WORK???

Rush: Oh, NO!

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Nothere: Sub normal? Must be a relative of Abby.

tenman: you and me both, doc!

Rush: Yes, NT!

Nothere: Work is a four letter word Rush.

Rush: Hey! bring back my hat!

Rush: NT: ๐Ÿ™‚

tenman: have suspected same since birth!

Rush: “Have suspected same from BIRTH!”

Mike n Rachel in DC: …my wisdom toot…

Nothere: Electrocuting two at a time. Well it would save on power.

Rush: The poor Chief!

Rush: LOTS of weirdness and confusion happening!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Wing

Rush: Not to mention crossed lines!

hounder: brb dog walk

Mike n Rachel in DC: Lotus Wing?

Rush: We can certainly catch the new “feel” in the Chan series already!

Rush: Or…Foo…

Louise: Jumping the shark…

Rush: A shark was threatening a SHIP?

Nothere: Well folks this is where I leave you. Remember most lions aren’t as friendly as Oscar until I am Not here again.

Mike n Rachel in DC: True…hard to tell about American/Chinese names

Phil: Sharks are a big danger to a ship

Louise: Bye NT

Rush: NT…good night….

Louise: stealing a clue again?

Rush: TYSM, Matt…

Rush: CC wants the scarf as a clue…

Louise: I don’t keep my brains in a jug

Rush: Dona, you are probably too young, but do you recall Richard “Dick” lane from L.A. television?

Rush: “FIRE!”

Rush: I think it’s time for the Chief to get to the ship in person!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Batten down the hatches! Ahoy on the mizzenmast!

Louise: TOOT!

Rush: Do we recall another similar instance?

Dan Venture: Silly feline. Just “lion” around…

Rush: ๐Ÿ™‚

Mike n Rachel in DC: Racetrack…
