DARN IF IT ISN’T ALL THE FAULT OF DREW AND TOM HORN … MY PLANS ASKEW …

ASKEW is right cos I had planned on something else to start with. Can’t do that right now.

I was always a fan of Steve McQueen going way back to the TV series in 1958.  There was always something believable about him.

Drew’s take on Tom Horn is right on the money and I honestly don’t think I’ve read a better movie review.  No kidding.

I have a ton of stuff to do and more or less planned out my posts for today.  We have been finding more things packed away left by the wife’s late mother. Because it’s difficult for her to do, she says she feels like she’s starting the new year by getting rid of her mom, I’ve been going through and seperating stuff like 50 years worth of diaries.  And due to the mania for seperating cardboard and recycle from hard plastics, well.  You can imagine how I spent a great deal of yesterday, and there’s more of other things today.  My inclination is to simply toss everything in a pile but ... can not do.  There are addresses there and phone numbers AND, the powers that be WILL check what you toss away.  Stiff fines and aggro I don’t need.  So ...  I had stuff lined up and came to BMEWS to start and got hit with Tom Horn. 

There is not a single thing I could possibly add to that review.  Drew missed his calling. But hell, it’s not too late should he tire of windows.

Westerns in the past and most especially the silents were sooooo corny I can’t believe how ppl took to em.  Movies in general were cornball. Not all of them, there were a few standouts.  Anyway ...  I got to thinking about the beginnings of the western ....

http://www.silentmovies.com/edison/gtrscenes/gtr.htm, and of course you can Google The Great Train Robbery and see clips.  What an innocent age.

Then I recalled a name from the past, William S. Hart.  He was a major star in that period. Just think, here was a guy born in the final year of the war of northern aggression.  okok. The Civil War.  (most uncivil) Anyway, you could say he was the Steve McQueen of his time. Not in acting ability to be sure. But in popularity.  I remember my mother speaking of him.  Then there was real cowboy named Tom Mix.

So I just thought I would post this very old stuff so we can see where we all came from.  Movie wise.

I will leave you with this. And to think, I actually got paid for playing it.  That was the life let me tell ya.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
