…When I Asked You to Visit

MICHAEL GRANBERRY is an artist/filmmaker living in Hollywood, California. Having grown up on a steady diet of fantasy, sci-fi and horror, it was inevitable that his artistic bent would lead him towards subject matter that might be considered contrary to the mainstream.

Unfilmable has the first stills from Michael’s latest film, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s From Beyond. You can also check out his work at his own site Red Hatchet, featuring stills from his delightfully diabolical film library, with site design by yours truly.


…When Mister Barry My Hairdresser Sent Me the Opening Titles to The Brady Brides

Wow! I watched all 6 episodes of this collapsing shack. Before the days of cannibalizing a successful show in order to make ten to twelve desperate spin-offs, Sherwood Schwartz actually had a good idea… well, it was at least an original idea… ok, maybe it wasn’t that either, but it’s stuck in my head for the last twenty-five years, so the man must know something. Anyway, I want to say that this show was actually an hour, but I can’t imagine it would have been able to sustain my interest for that long… even at ten years old, I knew it sucked ass. So it must have been paired with another lousy NBC Friday sinking-ship sitcom,like Here’s Boomer or Hello Larry! I’m already putting way too much thought and energy into this blog. Any tune that can work in a lyric like, “In the meantime along came Wally” pretty much sells itself. And don’t make fun of my having a hairdresser. If you met Mister Barry, you’d know there’s no other word for him.

Wild hogs in Florida usually run from 100-400 pounds with a 400 pounder being a monster. Because this one had been feasting on grain for several years it had grown to mamoth size. When Larry took it to the processor it weighed in at over 1100 pounds! It Ain’t Ned Beatty

…When Julie in My Office Fell in Love with the Cleaning Hunk

Posted in Uncategorized on March 16, 2006 by Tv Food and Drink

Olay. This is the LAST time I mention the Cleaning Hunk!

No really. I am totally over the Cleaning Hunk.

I certainly don’t dream about the Cleaning Hunk in my sleep.

There’s no reason why I would secretly be spending my days watching the Cleaning Hunk at my desk or trying to track down the tight-bodied model to see if he’s making any upcoming trips to the west coast.

No, I can say with all the confidence in the world that I totally have the Cleaning Hunk out of my system.

But if Julie, the producer sitting at the next desk from me happens to have him on her computer all day, I certainly have no way of putting a halt to it.

…When A Contestant Showed Her Pink Panties After Winning Big on Match Game

The best of many great things about the 70’s version of Match Game, aside from the glorious inebriated rivarly between Brett Sommers and Charles Nelson Reilly and the flawless, seemingly effortless hosting abilities of Gene Rayburn, hands down the best game show host ever — was that anytime anything went wrong, instead of a re-take, the producers would just go with it, and the show was all the better for preserving the spontaneity. Modern-day producers take note! No level of planning can produce the uproarious response from the audience when the below took place.

Witness lovely blonde winner, going for five-thousand clams. Doesn’t she look pretty and wholesome? The little dickens! Please pick the star you’re hoping to match.

Um… oh caterpillars! This is hard. I think I’ll pick Ann Elder!

Uh… Ann Who??? Makes no difference. Read on…

Okay, here we go. For $5,000, fill in the missing word. “_______ Hood”

Wow, oh my God… this is totally so hard. Hmmm. “Sweatshirt…” No. “Little Red Riding…” NO! I’ve got it. I’ll say… ROBIN HOOD!

Oh fiddlesticks! I thought about saying Robin, honestly I did, but at the last minute I changed my mind…

…and said ROBIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH MY GOD! This is the most exciting thing to ever happen to me! And it’s on NATIONAL TELEVISION! Everyone can see! Finally, I’m a winner! I’m a winner!

And then…

Oh dear…

Well, it looks like she was a good sport about it. And now at least she can afford a nice bell-bottom jump suit or some Dittos and maybe a nice corduroy purse.
