Friday morning greetings!  I've been to the vampire's lab for this month's Protime and am now enjoying another cup of coffee.

My printer problem saga carries on. After swapping the so-called compatible inks for Epson ones again, I found streaks still appearing on the prints. I spoke to Epson who said using the cheap inlks has obviously clogged the heads and the printer needs servicing. The cost of that wasn't worth it for a 4 year old model so I've bought a new printer - another Epson, because they are one of the few makes which include CD printing. So the cheap inks have ended up being very expensive. Anyway, I've installed the new printer which is brilliant.

Thank you for the full saga. I hope to remember that if I ever join the 21st century and get a printer of my own up and running.

TOD:

DVD:
More Bollywood horror films...currently I am half way through JAL MAHAL (1980) which, so far, has proven to be a love story with no horror...but since the female lead just jumped to her death, I expect a ghost to appear in the film at any moment.

CD:
That's What I Call Dance Arabia

DVR:
A pre-code Hollywood film and the German silent THE HANDs OF ORLAC.

BK,

Here's one that we totally agree on.

I also disliked the CAPE FEAR remake; thought DeNiro was way over the top.

Mitchum is terrific in the original.  That, along with THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE, HEAVEN KNOWS MR. ALLISON and THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER are his finest film performances.

Didn't care for the remake as a whole, either. But I did like certain elements. There was something about Nick Nolte and Jessica Lange together that was believable and made the horror of what's happening more real than Bergen and Peck.

But I also loved the  John D. MacDonald original. He was a lot better writer than I originally gave him credit for. Not literature, perhaps, and misogynistic, but great pulp. Muscular, lean.

A lull....LULL...I can't believe it.  Have been going full steam since about 7:30 a.m.

Not a whole lot accomplished, but a lot of questions have been answered that will ease things along by mid-afternoon. (I hope).

Three Russians just invaded Toyland, set up camp, repaired the AC duct within 30 minutes and cleared out. I will be out of here by 2pm, and I am very happy about that,
