    Born On This Day... Christmas Celebs Remembered

    American film and television actor, John Howard Payne (1912-1989), was born on May 23, 1912 in Roanoke, Virginia. Payne is known mainly for his later work in film noir crime stories, musical films, and for his leading role in the NBC Western television series The Restless Gun, but Christmas movie lovers everywhere remember him fondly for his role as attorney Fred Gailey, the man that proved there is a Santa Claus, in the classic holiday favorite Miracle on 34th Street (1947) starring Natalie Wood, Maureen O'Hara and Edmund Gwenn as Santa Claus.

    Sad statement on what Hollywood is feeding the public as entertainment. I believe the choose what they want to watch and identify with the image of Santa that we represent. Interesting statement at the end of the press release, if they can find funding.

    Does anyone remember... Before Dennis the Menace, Calvin & Hobbes, and Bart Simpson, there was Buster Brown and his dog “Tige.” The cherubic little boy with the page boy haircut was created by newspaper cartoonist, Richard F. Outcault, and debuted in the New York Herald, in 1902. Though angelic in appearance, Buster was a sling shot wielding prankster and self-acquitting moralist who usually ended up with a paddling over his mother’s knee in each comic strip. His character was adopted as the mascot of the Brown Shoe Company and the Buster Brown brand was introduced to the public at the 1904 World’s fair. I got my first pair of Buster Brown’s in the late 1960s/early 70s at Fleischmann's Department Store, in Guilford, Ct, which also sold Cub Scout and Boy Scout uniforms.

    The Next Horrible Santa

    Sounds to me like it is not a movie about Santa Claus. It's a movie about a jerk who "plays Santa professionally." But still a stupid idea from people who make money by everything. Nothing is off limits for Hollyweird. They will do their best to damage the image of professional Santa actors because we are an easy target and it generates controversy to show the "real inside scoop" on Santa Claus actors. I agree it also looks like an attempt to piggyback off the recent Kurt Russell movie with another big bame actor for the draw. These people are scum.

    Born On This Day... Christmas Celebs Remembered

    American actor, Edward Ernest "Judge" Reinhold, Jr. was born May 21, 1957, in Wilmington, Delaware @Drosselmeyer. Reinhold has appeared in in over 75 motion picture and television roles including Ruthless People, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Stripes, Gremlins, Beverly Hills Cop, and his Emmy-winning performance as “the close talker” on Seinfeld, but Christmas movie lovers everywhere remember him as Dr. Neil Miller - the doubting stepfather/psychiatrist in an ugly sweater, who finally gets his "weenie whistle" in The Santa Clause (1, 2 & 3).

    I am not as young as I used to be - but I am pretty sure some of you gents have a few years on me..... When I grew up as a kid in SouthEast TX we only had a 12" square black and white TV - I only remember watching Lone Ranger (which was revered and unquestioned true history to a boy in TX), Lassie, and 3 Stooges . . . . our house backed up to a swamp, and we always had critters - my Mom was less than happy to come home and find snakes sunning in the driveway lots of adventures out in the yard - gave the imagination a lot of exercise Of course - lots of critters to play with any time it rained our yard was a pond - and exploded with little frogs - we called them rain frogs I would catch them in a little box and sneak them inside to play with - then Mom would usually find them all dried out on the carpet the morning - aparrently I was the primary suspect when this happened . . . . and of course we also had skinks - but you had to be quick or their tails would pop off . . .

    I'm all for folks portraying their idea of Santa, but come on... at least try to stay in the same realm as the character!

    I remember having the transistor radio below that was made to look like the Sinclair (Dino) gas pump. Depending on the weather and cloud cover, I could pick-up WGN Radio in Chicago and listen to Cubs games.

    Lets try one for the "Really" old individuals, How many remember waking up really early and watching the launch of the Mercury capsules of the space race before you went to school, in B&W of course?

    since we are talking about "the olden times" thought I might share this . . . I don't recall having all the latest and greatest toys - we didn't even get an Atari when they came out - but I sure had a lot of fun with a fishing pole and my dog down in the park . . .

    Yes! And you know something else? I found an old glass percolator at a church flea market in near perfect condition. Brought it home and tried it. It was the BEST cup of coffee I ever had! Way better than the electric coffee makers you see today. I called it "gas coffee" because of the gas stove I used it on.

    I think you we can put this study in the same bin as the "Beards are dirtier than a dog study".

    I was just a kid then, but I recall many of them were designed to look like console radios, and some even were advertised with people sitting next to them listening to them like they were radios, instead of watching them. Very puzzling. Ours was a Zenith, almost square, made of plastic with rounded corners, B&W of course, and the most interesting series was a series of war propaganda shorts called "Industry on Parade." They were a bit hard pressed for programming in the early years...

    "Whatever happened/To Tuesday and so slow?/Going down the old mine/With a transistor radio…" Van Morrison, Browne Eyed Girl (1967) Before smartphones, before the Ipod, before the Walkman, before the boombox, there was the transistor radio! Wow, portable music! You could finally listen to the radio anywhere you wanted – including away from your parents and other adults. Where would Rock and Roll be without the transistor radio? I still have one next to my flashlight.

    RCA, big Mahogany cabinet small B&W screen. You had to wait until the tubes warmed up and there were 4 channels which went off the air a midnight with the national anthem playing and a test pattern on the screen.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.
