Rush: Good evening, Matt!

Rush: We made it to another Monday!

Rush: And I hope that both Angel and Foxx are doing well…!

Matt1: Hard to believe October is knocking at our door 

Rush: Yes!

Rush: Time DOES march on!

Matt1: We actually booked our X-Mas trip to PA already!

Rush: Good idea, Matt!

Rush: VERY good idea!

Rush: I remember when you were briefly in PA. Do you have family there?

Matt1: I’m originally from Philly

mda19083 has joined this room

Rush: AH!

Matt1: My entire family is still there

Rush: That’s right.

mda19083: everyone loves philly

Rush: MDA!

mda19083: hello all

Matt1: Hello MDA!


Rush: We have a couple of interesting visual presentations regarding Keye Luke tonight.

mda19083: feels like fall here in philly

Matt1: Looks like it!

mda19083: i thought we had a few more episodes of landini

Rush: And fall is arriving in my new area as well, though it was a bit warm today.

Rush: Summer fights to linger a bit.

Rush: It will be interesting to see what the maker of the forst video will consider a “sad ending” for Keye Luke!

Matt1: I was curious about the title too

angel landini & foxx furr: We were out policing the area. Howdy Matt and mda!!

Rush: I recall watching it quite a while back, and was not convinced his end was “sad.

mda19083: keye luke is my favorite chan son – he is number 1 in my book

Rush: I agree.

Matt1: Agreed

angel landini & foxx furr: Likewise here. We regard Mr. Luke as key.

Rush: And the off-screen relationship between he and Warner Oland was really nice!

mda19083: AL 🙂

Rush: I a later interview he referred to Oland as “Poppa.”

Rush: (In a…)

Matt1: Very special

mda19083: the good vibes came through in the films

angel landini & foxx furr: Rush . . . i read & reread, wonder i must have missed—WHERE do we find tonight’s Special?

Rush: Before we moved, i drove up to L.A. with my younger daughter, and we took a look at a place described in a Canadian TV interview by Keye Luke, where he and Oland had an “interaction” with a busload of tourists. The place is a bit changed since I first saw it years ago.

Matt1: I’m excited already for next weeks film! My fav Chan!

Rush: The old stuff is still basically there, but one needs fo comb through the “new” to see it.

mda19083: do warner oland and keye luke have stars on the hollywood walk of fame

Rush: That interview, transcribed, can be found in our Study.

angel landini & foxx furr: So is there a video for our Keye Luke time??

Rush: 6 minutes until the first video…”The Life and…”

Matt1: Ready here!

mda19083: it appears the links to the you tube videos are above the chat

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Similar to how we used to do the radio dramas.

mda19083: ready willing and able – sounds like a law firm

Rush: We can watch the first one then see the second one after.

Rush: 🙂

angel landini & foxx furr: What a fool i am. We am. I are. I blame it on SOMEONE’S fox fur obstructing my orbs.

Rush: AH!

Rush: Always the fox fur!

Matt1: <slap>

mda19083: it is cool enough tonight for the white fox fur

Rush: Sometimes, perhaps the MONOGRAM fur?

Rush: However…with a lower budget…not often!

mda19083: he was a talented artist

Rush: I have tghat first book mentioned
