The horrors of Fred Calvert! As posted by Vinnie Rattolle.

"The Mini-Munsters!"

First aired as an installment of "The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie," this "Munsters" spin-off (with only Al Lewis reprising his role) served as the pilot for a Saturday morning series which never materialized. According to unverified online sources, it originally filled an hour-long timeslot but this truncated half-hour version was broadcast in the '80s.

Written by Arthur Alsberg and Don Nelson, who later wrote "The Munsters Revenge" and produced by Fred Calvert, of "Thief and the Cobbler" infamy. Credit for this uber-rare rip goes to rawb181.

http://youtu.be/0EqtEPrO5Z4 Look what just popped up. Pah, I can tell where the licensing is going with this one.

But did they really not have better music to go with this? Seriously.

Peter Parker, The Amazing Spider-Man, famously had two iconic girlfriends. Gwen Stacey, the girl next door who died, and Mary Jane, the redheaded supermodel. The movies have constantly gotten this backward. Mary Jane has been depicted as the girl next door, and Gwen has been a cute blonde (played by a cute redhead). "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" took this to new heights; Mary Jane was depicted as very plain. Ann Veal plain. Fans across the interwebs went "Her?"

Reaction was so strong that MJ was cut from the film entirely, and may be recast. At the very least they could glam her up a little, give her some style. Depending on your personal taste, actress Shailene Woodley is better looking than Kirsten Dunst, but not by much, and certainly wasn't depicted that way in the now-deleted footage. She's the definition of plain and forgettable, and nothing like Mary Jane ... whereas both Gwen Stacy actresses could have played MJ easily.

Face it Tiger, you just dodged a bullet.

In very similar news, Microsoft is in damage control mode, rolling back its oppressive XBox One policies in an attempt to survive the console wars at all.

At least The Spectacular Spider-Man gets those female roles right, with Gwen being the damsel and MJ being the hot redhead.
I wish they continued for another season. Otherwise, we have to put up with this: Image

James Gandolfini has died in Italy at the age of 51 of a possible heart attack. According to HBO reps, he was on vacation at the time. The “Sopranos” actor appeared recently in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” He had been working on Fox Searchlight’s “Animal Rescue” and TV show “Criminal Justice” as well as “Taxi 22.”

One of the great actors of our time. I'm upset.

DC Pierson writes:

There’s a scene at the end of the SOPRANOS episode “Where’s Johnny,” where Tony is tearfully asking his (at this point fully senile) Uncle Junior if he ever really loved him. Junior, probably slightly less tuned out then he’s pretending, absentmindedly remarks on a nature documentary on TV:

“Here’s that coyote.”

I often think of that line. THE SOPRANOS touched on so many of the ineffable, difficult parts of being human most popular entertainment would (kinda understandably) rather not deal with. Tony is touching on the dead part of his uncle’s soul that maybe always has been dead. Tony has a spot like that in his soul, and one of the primary investigations of the show is, has that spot grown to become Tony’s soul? Has it always been the entire thing, and is all the humanity we, the audience, have clung to in our protagonist despite his deeply awful deeds, is that all a grand narcissistic dance, solar flares sent up from a planet made entirely of pure selfishness that our empathy tricks us into thinking look pretty?

When I rewatched the episode about a year ago, I read it like Junior was naming that nameless deadness all of us have inside of us to one degree or another, that we can stifle or cultivate or justify, depending on what kind of person we want to be or have been made into: What are you gonna do, kid? That’s just the coyote.

I think about that line now, when I stumble upon the queasy and inexplicable inside myself, or inside of others: “Here’s that coyote.”

James Gandolfini, by all accounts a generous man, and clearly a great artist, is dead.

Death is a fucking coyote.
