HonoluLou: MDA, thank you so much! Always nice to hear. 

Rush: With Louise’s help, it looks like we are on the way with the reconstruction of our site at WordPress!

Rush: So, that was good news out of the weekend!

Matt1: That’s outstanding

dave: good news, rush

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Hello, Dave!

mda19083: Lou – can your CD be purchased on your website?

Hawaii_Steve: MDA, not too many people know this, but Lou has a new CD coming out soon. It’s called “Lou Sings the Hits of Charlie Chan.” Right Lou?

Rush: Welcome to YOU!

dave: hello, rush

Hawaii_Steve: Aloha Dave.

dave: best to all!

Rush: 🙂

dave: aloha, steve

mda19083: H Steve – it would be a big seller

dave: Can’t wait to hear TYSM

dave: Tune of YMCA

Hawaii_Steve: Like Lou, I have a new CD coming out too. It’s called “Hawaii-Steve Can’t Sing a Note if his Life Depended Upon It.” I’m selling it out of the trunk of my car.

Rush: 🙂

dave: I have to say to you: Thank You So Much…

Rush: Steve, we could make that a duet!

Hawaii_Steve: LOL

Rush: Sort of like what Mrs. Miller did in the 60s!

Mike n Rachel in DC has joined this room

Rush: Mike/Rachel!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Bon soir, toujours!

Hawaii_Steve: Mrs. Miller, the old lady, from the Merv Griffin Show?

dave: Golden Throats

Matt1: Hello M & R!

HonoluLou: Steve, too good. I’ll start with the 12 Days of Christmas by Maven (in her honor). MDA, it was, but they switched me to another site Bandzoogle and I’ve got to fix. However, if you just google “Never Before Lou Armagno” it’s for sale elsewhere. & Barnes & Noble has it.


dave: greetings, m/r

HonoluLou: Evening M&R, Dave.

Dona has joined this room

Dona: Hello Everyone!

Rush: Good evening!

Matt1: Hello Dona!

dave: hello, dona

Rush: Was the traffic light, Dona?

HonoluLou: A Steve & Rush CD, I’d pay big bucks to hear that!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi everyone! Lou, we checked out your Sinatra stuff. Very good!

Dona: Yes and I left a little early.

Rush: NICE!

Hawaii_Steve: Lou, speaking of your CD. Several years ago, I placed your CD in the Volvo player and it won’t come out. It just plays and plays and play. I cannot eject it.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hey Dona!

HonoluLou: Rush, so you & Louise ARE making progress that is awesome!

Rush: You know the material by heart now, Steve!

HonoluLou: Steve, that’s how it…rolls 🙂

Dona: Hello MNR

HonoluLou: Mda, please let me know if you can find, I’ll get ya one

Rush: I could think of worse, Steve…Starland Vocal Band…The Archies…?

Hawaii_Steve: Volvo makes $500.00 from me to eject your CD from my car. So Lou, old buddy, you’re always with me … on the road.

HonoluLou: Steve, look at the bright side…it could have been the Monkeys!

Hawaii_Steve: Aloha Mike & Rachel, and Dona.

mda19083: Lou – thanks for the update – I always like to support the site preferred by the artist

Dona: Hi Steve

Hawaii_Steve: Lou, LOL. You’re so right.

HonoluLou: Nice Rush.

Rush: Shal we give it a try?

Hawaii_Steve: yes, master.

Mike n Rachel in DC has left this room

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC has joined this room

Hawaii_Steve: OMG. WWII footage is so tragic.

dave: As someone whose grandmother came from Czech, very sad

Rush: Yes!

dave: not M/r?

Dona: Hi Not MnR

Hawaii_Steve: Matt, you did not loose audio. The soundtrack ended.

Rush: They were sold out, of course. There is no compromise with evil.

Matt1: No, I lost audio

Rush: It was made that way…

mda19083: enlightening but disturbing

Dona: I lost audio at the end

Matt1: Ok

Rush: Went silent for the last minute of so.

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: The chat wouldn’t let MnR back in. We had to fool it. Shhh. It’s not us. Really.

HonoluLou: NM&R, genius!

Matt1: But it’s NOT you

Rush: Tghe next one is more of an informational, narrated piece…

sarabell2: How are you Rush and Matt at Honoluulu I think

Hawaii_Steve: Aloha Sara

mda19083: history lesson and Charlie Chan

Rush: And, after seeing these, we can listen to Charlie Chan: “Wise man has said, “Beware of spider who invite fly into parlor.”

dave: right, rush

Dona: Hi Sara

sarabell2: Hi Dona

dave: evening, sara

Rush: 12 1/2 minutes to go…

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Keep in mind, though, that Chamberlain’s ultimate goal was to rearm Germany and then have them fight a mutually destructive war against the Soviet Union.

Rush: “Charlie Chan in City in darkness”

sarabell2: Hi Dave, sorry I got busy and missed you all for a bit.

Hawaii_Steve: Rush, I have a shot video to share with you, and the family, regarding the end of WW2. You may wish to use it when we get into the Monogram Chans.

dave: welcome, hounder

Dona: Hi Hounder

mda19083: NOT M and R – are you in competition with NOTHERE

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, Dona. He wasn’t a dupe…he just had a flawed strategy. But the British ruling class was morbidly afraid of communism. THAT was the real enemy, or so they thought.

Hawaii_Steve: Aloha Hounder.

HonoluLou: Greetings Hounder

Hounder: Sorry tobe late. Time got away from me.

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi MDA and hounder.

mda19083: hello hounder and those I missed

Rush: Well, Mike, if so, I guess Czechoslovakia was one of the “eggs.”

Rush: Hello, Hounder!

dave: Break a few eggs?

Rush: Good evening to you!

Hounder: Hi rush

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Mike n Rachel have gone missing tonight. They got kicked out of the chat and can’t get back in.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: We have just been listening to WW2 radio newscasts here lately!

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Mike n Rachel had a run in with the chat room. We’re incognito. No one will ever recognize us in this disguise.

Rush: Yes, Angel?

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: CHECK Army!

dave: Check!

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: Yes, Rush! February 1941 here last week!

Rush: In this film we see the Nazi swastika on planes. Not blotted out as in “Olympics.”

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: This all sounds very brave, but France folded like a pair of 2s when the Germans really came.

dave: Real!

Nothere: Hello total strangers I do not kno.

Rich Maine: J. Romaine…famous for his salad

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: VEERY interesting. Interesting to note the promo the Maginot Line was getting here, given what happened only months later.

Nothere: That happens hen t enemy igores your army, and takes your cities.

Rush: Yes, Mike. Especially because the Maginot Line, which France reloed upon, was ineffective.

Rush: (relied)

mda19083: nt is without his w tonight

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: The Romaine people have always been signiferant.

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Well, the Maginot line worked…but the Germans went around it.

mda19083: rich 🙂

Rush: Well, yes. I guess it “workwd” for the Germans!

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: Rush: We know the date on this is 1939—had the war started, as this was made?

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: The famous Romaine salad. Popular with honeymooners. “Lettuce alone.”

Rich Maine: The letters of transport rick!

Nothere: I’m ithout that key permanatly. I’d use the other computer but it’s become slo beyond belief suddenly. Technoloy hates me:(

dave: your definition of “worked”

Rush: Production on this film was in the summer of 1939.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: WHERE’S MY PIANO? I had it on me when i came in!

Nothere: I’m the butler madam not the footman.

Rush: I suspect, looking at the copyright date, that the ending was added.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: We must get this precisely.

dave: Makes sense, rush

Rush: By then the war had begun in Europe.

Hounder: ..

dave: The cross section of people…

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: “I am a poultry man” means something, uh, different now.

Rush: Marcel.

Nothere: No your hens ar gonna get egg in te dark. Sneaky rooster.

Rush: Poor Marcel!

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: Prefect makes perfect.

Rush: 🙂

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Huber is just…good.

Dona: Isn’t Putin using the same tactic saying there are Russian in an area of Ukraine, and he should have that land?

dave: Maintain ze accent…

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: He’s got a lotta Gaulle.

Rush: “The Jumping Rabbit”

Rush: Angel: 🙂

Nothere: The Prefect has popped his cork.

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes, Dona. He’s learned from a master.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: The Wascawwy Wabbit is next.

mda19083: angel – I’m afraid to ask

Dona: Yes he did. He read his histroy

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: Fudd’s Law!

Rush: 🙂

Rush: yes.

Dona: I keep telling my Grandchildren to read history.

Rush: Take cover!!!

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: mda—WE would have no way of knowing, either. I am just passing along ze invormations we haff learned from our Paris pornographer.

Rush: yes, Dona!

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Yes. It’s a good thing his army didn’t get the hang of that “Blitzkrieg” thing very well.

HonoluLou: Get the gas masks!

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: ZURRENDER!

Rush: VERY important…even if they call it “Social Studies” today.

Nothere: Petroff Medero You gotta be doing something rong for te cops to instantly kno you by one nam.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: It’s a WITCH! And flying monkeys!

HonoluLou: Rush, good catch!

mda19083: o mein papa

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: I’ll just have a homburger withe Freedom Fries. And hold ze homburger.

HonoluLou: Harold Huber got that scar on his face in a fencing accident.

Rush: Marcel rivals Tombstone in ability!

Nothere: Charlie has no son here, but there must be one in a Chan film.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: Think we’ll see a Paris Match?

dave: I noticed earlier this week this is a story about the City of Lights…the City of Darkness

Rush: True, Lou?

mda19083: he should have gotten out of the way

Rush: Yes, Dave?

Rush: No mask?

HonoluLou: He would be a good subject for the annual newsletter, hmmmm!

Rush: Not a good idea!

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: dave, the pun had never occurred to me: we are zo embarrassed! City of Light / Darkness!!

Nothere: Such a sneaky cop. Totally blends into the background

Rush: Yes, Lou!

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Found this tid-bit about Huber:

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: I feel i should slink off to the City of DORKNESS.

Rush: Perhaps, Lou, the most versatile actor in the Chan series!

HonoluLou: Yes, Rush 🙂

Nothere: Thats City in Dorkness Angel.

dave: I did not think of it for 40 years of watching it

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: It’s too bad he died so young.

HonoluLou: True Rush

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: I have the eye of Newt. The former Speaker sent me a note telling me he’s been lurking in some places i write.

HonoluLou: Yes M^R how old was he?

Rush: And, then there’s Inverness…”The City in Loch Ness.”

Rich Maine: Looks like a 1 star hotel

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: 49. Found his obit in the NY Times.

Nothere: It;s the reason for being here. For others to give keen insights into the movie and me to make stupid comment about it.

NOT Mike n Rachel in DC: Sent a link above somewhere

HonoluLou: Cool. It would be good in the STUDY.

Angel Louis Stevenson+Fox: Huiber?
