Rush has joined this room

Rush: Hello, Matt!

Matt1: Hello Rush!

Matt1: Happy Labor Day!

Rush: I am just happy I am in the Chat room as I was having Internet connection issues!

Rush: And the same to you!

Rush: Was your day relaxing…or like mine with lots of home projects?

Matt1: Family just left after a long weekend visit, so I’m ready to relax

Rush: I understand!

Matt1: How is the house?

Rush: Coming along.

Matt1: One day at a time

Rush: Yes, that’s the way I do it.

Matt1: We have one more piece of furniture due at the end of the month…..ordered since Feb!

Rush: Yes! We have a piece coming in in December that we ordered on early July.

Rush: SIX month wait.

Matt1: Everything is blamed on COVID…the new excuse

Rush: Yes.

Rush: Stay tuned…MORE of that ridiculousness to come!

Matt1: Sadly, I must agree

Rush: I suspect Dr. Fouci will declare a national emergency say…just before the 2022 elections…

Matt1: This booster is turning into a fiasco

Rush: Yeah.

Rush: Doesn’t fit the “game plan.”

Matt1: Stick to a narrative, rather than changing it every other day….public looses confidence IMHO

Rush: I can only imaging the histrionics that are probably abaout to be foisted on Californians!

Rush: Glad we bailed when we did!

Matt1: Wise move


Rush: Yes, It seems so.

Rush: We also sold our home there at the EXACT right moment, it seems!

Rush: just after ours sold, it seems things began to slow.

Matt1: Yes! Perfect timing

Matt1: We said the same thing here

Rush: Yes!

Rush: I thank God every day!

Matt1: Amen!

Rush: And I mean that!

Rush: Yes.

Rush: I have a fun “extra movie” for next year’s tour!

Matt1: It must be nice living in a slower pace too?

Matt1: Awesome!

Rush: It is a documentary and is about an hour long.

Rush: You are VERY welcome, DV!

Matt1: That sounds great

Rush: Happy Labor Day!

DanVenture: You don’t know how painful it is to suddenly look at the clock last week and realize I had been at my computer the whole time Monday and hadn’t logged in. Egads.

Rush: And we will have a nice “extra” for Halloween!

Rush: “Charlie Chan in Transylvania”

DanVenture: From the looks of the earlier chat, we have definitely been “laboring” with some tough subjects…

Rush: True, DV!

Nothere: So thats Dorian Grey. I thought he’d be older.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Nah. But wait till you see that picture in his attic…

Rush: Tommy says he’s 18 years old…that, however, does not figure…

Godwinshelley2: too old or too young

Rush: A little too young.

Godwinshelley2: because he was in college

Mike n Rachel in DC: Must have been double-promoted along the way?

Rush: Yes, and earlier appearances in the series as well in the form of other actors.

Rush: And…being “Number Three Son” out of 14 kids…he HAS to be older!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Rush, is there a chronology of the Chan children? (with possible birth dates, etc.)

Godwinshelley2: Any “twins” in the group?

mda19083: that line never works for me neither

Nothere: Louise wins the most inventve use of my name this wek.

Godwinshelley2: Would be cool to see Charlie Chan in a Luchadoer mystery

Rich-Maine: My house is your house

Mike n Rachel in DC: You could be Shakesperian, NT: Noth, ere…

Rush: I can vouch for Louise’s constant creativity!

Godwinshelley2: Charlie Chan verses the Wrestling Women – or the Aztec Mummy

Rush: 🙂

Rush: THAT would be one for the books, GS!

Mike n Rachel in DC: OH. The Aztec Mummy flicks are epic.

Louise: Damn, now I am have to become more and more clever over the evening…

Nothere: Well one of them was a werewolf.

Godwinshelley2: One of the sons could go under cover as a Luchador – that would be fun!!

Rush: I used to see those on TV as a kid.

Rush: Interesting collection of suspects…as usual!

Godwinshelley2: I don’t recall any of the women wrestlers every wearing a mask – did they not do that?

Hounder: Neptune’s really is an element

Rich-Maine: An entertaining countess!

Rush: Not many did…but I think that’s a lot different today.

Nothere: 2 werewolfs, Dracula, Franksnstein, and the mummy. All he needed was Claude Rains and the gilllman to complte the set.

Louise: always with the Nazis

Rush: THAT got him!

Godwinshelley2: Nothere – are you talking about Dark Shadows?

Rich-Maine: Reds under the bed

Rush: NT: 🙂

Nothere: No Chan films. Tolier was a wre wolf in Werewolf of London. Then Cheny, Lugisi, and Karloff all appeared.

Rush: Today, others “lurk under some beds”….

Rich-Maine: True Rush!

Dona: Yes Rush

Nothere: Well Nazi’s were the go to eniemies untill Commies.

Godwinshelley2: Maybe you could count Carradine as Invisible Man as he ended up on the cutting room floor in the CC at the Olympics

Rush: Chattanoogs explores…

Godwinshelley2: And, since he was a swimmer in that, also as the gillman??

Rush: Tommy will create a hazardous situation for him!

Louise: Experimenting always a problem…

Godwinshelley2: Poor Willie – he’s in a Mantan in the Lab situation

Nothere: possibility God. We mut conider it.

Rush: Does this scene remind us of another?

Godwinshelley2: Don’t forget Kay – helping to author “The Blob”

Mike n Rachel in DC: Wasn’t there a skull that moved like that?

Rush: YES, GS!

Rush: Sort of, Mike…in “Secret Service”

Rush: It was a “monster-like” head.

Mike n Rachel in DC: right…

Nothere: Oh I had forgot that. I bow o Your superior monster movie skill.

Rich-Maine has left this room

Rush: And I blush a bit…

Godwinshelley2: And – Ming the Merciless – plus Milton Parsons too

DanVenture: Course, in that era, they didn’t have instant reruns to remember scenes like that…So why not revisit a good gag?

Rush: Yes on them as well, GS.

Godwinshelley2: That was the basis of practically all of the Three Stooges shorts – constant rotation of same gags

Nothere: o you know about my tapeworm?

DanVenture: Indeed, GS.

Godwinshelley2: PEPLUM altert

Godwinshelley2: alert

Rush: YES!

Nothere: And a Superman

Rich-Maine: Yes NT exactly

Rush: I love all these connections!

Rush: “Segura, mi amigo!”

Rush: Here comes Josephine…

Rush: And the second slap!

Rush: CC is quietly amused.

Rush: He must have known what the result would be!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Not Charlie’s first rodeo…

Rush: Indeed!

Rush: “Employees Only”

Rush: Chattanooga quotes BB!

sarabell2: It would be worth it to be slapped by her.

Rush: 🙂

Nothere: I’d hide the gun in a cane. You’d only get a coup of shots, but the cops would never suspect it.

Rush: Sounded like a bat!

Dave: right, Rush…

Rush: Actually, GS, we can add Mantan Moreland to the list for several films he made, including “Spider Baby.”

Rich-Maine: Only a dummy!

Rush: “Puppl cannot fool old dog.”

Rush: (puppy)

Godwinshelley2: And Revenge of the Zombies

Louise: Is mystery…

Rush: The Countess sings….

Rush: “My Heart is Yours”

Dave: yes….

Louise: Nice voice…but it is not hers

Rich-Maine: Lots of extras

Mike n Rachel in DC: Very appropriate for a Mexican setting

Rush: She looks a tiny bit like Jane Russel.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Mi corazon es suyo?

sarabell2: She does, it’s her eyes

Rush: That’s what what the signer next to her says, Mike!

Rush: Maybe this is a club for Americanos.

Rush: Maybe it’s just a trace amount.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Note to self: Do not eat Americium…
