"Weird Al" Yankovic - Alpocalypse

I'm a huge "Weird Al" fan. I think he is a music genius! I saw him in concert in 2000, it was probably one of the best shows I've ever seen. This info comes from a "Weird Al" email I got.
In case you haven’t heard, Weird Al and Lady Gaga recently made a big splash in the news – it seems there was some kind of misunderstanding over Al’s parody of “Born This Way” (which he retitled “Perform This Way.”)

We’ll spare you all the gory details and just give you the happy ending: Gaga loves the parody, and the single is on iTunes right NOW!

This means that Al’s 13th studio album – his first in nearly 5 years - is finally complete.

“ALPOCALYPSE” drops on June 21.

No really this is MacDonald Carey, from the cover of Cowgirl Romances published by Marvel Comics (Timely/Atlas) cover dated January 1950.

Michael Sarrazin, R.I.P.

I just read about this over at Frankensteinia. I'm a big fan of Frankenstein: The True Story.
R.I.P. Mr. Sarrazin.

From The Los Angeles Times --

Michael Sarrazin, a tall, dark-eyed Canadian actor who starred opposite Jane Fonda in Sydney Pollack's 1969 film "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?", died of cancer Sunday at a Montreal hospital, said his agent, Michael Oscars. He was 70.

Born May 22, 1940, in Quebec City, Sarrazin grew up in Montreal and began acting in high school. He came to Hollywood in the mid-1960s after signing a contract with Universal.

He appeared in a flurry of films beginning with the 1967 movies "Gunfight in Abilene" with Bobby Darin and "The Flim-Flam Man" starring George C. Scott. The next year, Sarrazin starred in "The Sweet Ride" opposite Jacqueline Bisset, and they began a relationship that lasted several years.

Sarrazin was up for the part of Joe Buck in John Schlesinger's "Midnight Cowboy" but lost it to Jon Voight when the film's producers wouldn't agree to Universal's demands for borrowing Sarrazin.

As a result, he crafted his enduring film highlight as the sad-eyed farm boy Robert in "They Shoot Horses," the gripping drama of desperate characters in a 1930s dance marathon that was nominated for nine Academy Awards.

"You could have paid me a dollar a week to work on that," Sarrazin said in a 1994 interview with the Toronto Star. "It hits you bolt upright; I still get really intense when I watch it.

"We stayed up around the clock for three or four days.... We stayed in character. Pollack said we should work until signs of exhaustion. Fights would break out among the men; women started crying."

Sarrazin's later films included "Sometimes a Great Notion" (1970), "The Pursuit of Happiness" (1971), "The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean" (1972), "Harry in Your Pocket" (1973), "For Pete's Sake" (1974), "The Gumball Rally" (1976) and "Joshua Then and Now" (1985).

He frequently acted on television and earned positive reviews for the 1973 TV movie "Frankenstein: The True Story." His last role was in the 2008 TV movie "The Christmas Choir."

Sarrazin returned to Montreal several years ago to be closer to family.

He is survived by his daughters, Michelle and Catherine, and his brother, Pierre, a producer.

Three Stooges Three Dimensional Stickers

Here's something totally random from my vast collection of junk stuff.

Three packs of The Three Stooges Three Dimensional Stickers. ©1980 Norman Mauer Productions, Inc. Made in Taiwan. According to this website, there are 24 unique stickers in all - packaged in six short packs, or three long packs. I only have these three short packs. I guess I might have to look for the other ones some day.
