It Takes Stew to Tango!

Random Stew, that is! Grab your spoons and let's get started!

It's winter time, so here's a little Snow for you.

Lugosi gets top billing, but Karloff only needs one name. And looks like they were
billed with the old school version of Faces of Death...

Here's some weirdness from back around Halloween.

Here's Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th movies, when he was still in the pink of health, circa part 3:

Now, here is Jason Voorhees again, now thoroughly mooshy after being killed 57 times across another five movies or so:

Okay, so here's my "Punkin Voorhees" from this past October 31st:

Okay, after Halloween had come and gone, PV went to live out behind my house with our other two jack'o'lanterns. And look what happened after he'd been out there a few weeks:


Can't you just hear the "bridge sound effects" when you look at that pic?

Here's one of my fave short-lived TV shows from the 80's: Masquerade. It starred Rod Taylor (l), Greg Evigan (c) and yup, Kirstie Alley (r). The set up was that all of the enemy spies in the world knew all of the American spies, so aging agent Taylor started Operation: Masquerade, where he and his two assistants would put together a team of five or so specialized "experts" in a field - like, maybe a long distance runner; a plumber who can get into tight spaces; an average joe who resembles a Soviet nuclear scientist - and run a complicated mission with them in a foreign country, all under the guise of an American tourist group. Mix Mission: Impossible with The Love Boat and you pretty much have it. Crystal Gayle sang the theme song, which was also a lot of fun. It was all really pretty cool, albeit in a cheesy 80's way, and I wish it had lasted longer than the 8 or 9 episodes they managed to make before cancellation terminated the show with extreme prejudice. Here's a few pics of the show:

The United States government would like to invite you...
...to come spy with me...

Man that was a good show - They could put the whole thing out on two DVDs...a guy can dream, right?

Look! It's Isis!

And we'll finish out with a little dessert - you know...cheesecake?

Yummy! Til next time, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
