68 Happily married Male from Windsor       119
         
I'm a mid-60s, retired postal worker (therefore, no longer disgruntled) with far too much time on my hands. As such, I have a lot of hobbies including some very cool stuff that you can find on my personally created and daily maintained website:

http://www.drnostromo.com

You'll find my extensive music library featuring several playlists of progressive and eclectic music. In the late 60s, I heard In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida and my whole world changed. Since that time, I've been on an obsessive mission to hunt down progressive and innovative music of all kinds.

Being a movie fanatic, my website features movie reviews for over 1600 films. You'll also find an extensively maintained "Avengers Timeline Viewing Order".

The most complete episode guide for Mystery Science Theater 3000 with the best quality, free streaming links that you'll find anywhere.

A section of Vassal Board Gaming including "To Be King", my D&D style, grand campaign, fantasy board game that I've been working on for about 30 years. Interested in playing?

Considering the site has been running since 1995, you'll also find some vintage stuff on it like my old Call of Duty: United Offensive and Doom projects.

Personal: Happily with the same lady since 1977. What's the secret? Make each other laugh everyday. We live in Wine Country, California with out Tee Tee.

Happy chatting!
Doc

Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high 🎵

Dr_Nostromo: For you horror fans

I ran across an article that you may be interested in at The Ringer

"The 111 Best Horror Movie Kills of All Time, Ranked"

I know lists are subjective to the tastes of the reader so there's always going to be stuff that we feel they missed, like the final scene in "The Fury", the exploding girl in the barn in "Slither", several kills in the "Final Destination" franchise (although they do include a couple of choice ones), the elevator scene in "Omen 2", etc., and there's going to be stuff in the list that I wouldn't consider particularly special.

However, for a subjective list, they actually did a reasonably good job and it's one of the more impressive lists, for my particular sensibilities, that I've encountered. So, check it out at:

https://www.theringer.com/movies/2024/7/8/24193986/best-horror-movie-kill-scenes-deaths-psycho-maxxxine-longlegs-blair-witch

They even linked a video of the first kill ever put on film in 1895.

Here's a list of the ones that I remember having the most impact on me: 111, 109, 96, 90, 88, 86-83, 72, 62, 60, 58, 57, 53, 49, 47, 45, 38, 33, 26-24, 22, 21, 16, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1

Which ones did you remember fondly or what did they miss?

fre2beme17: i saw the movie a few years ago ... and since cars are one of my 'loves' i found it fascinating ... i mistakenly thought the "Big Three" was the main culprit for the shut down .of the mfg ... but lack of financial planning and getting into hot water with the SEC eventually led to its imminent demise ... it is an amazing car ... disc brakes and fuel injection and seat belts just to name a few ... the colors are enticing ... especially that gorgeous blue!
it was certainly ahead of its time ... what a shame
