Happy Anniversary Me!

Today marks the one year anniversary of Booksteve’s Library! We made it! Along the way, I’ve met a lot of new and very supportive friends and I’ve learned to discipline myself better as a writer. I’ve learned a lot more about computers and the Internet, I’ve been called "an influencer" by my peers and I’ve discovered that a perhaps staggering number of people still lust after Linda Blair! Things have been a little lean here at the Library recently as I adjust to my sometimes bizarre new work schedule but I thank you for staying with me. Starting tomorrow is a multi-part piece on one of my absolute favorites, Duck artist Don Rosa! I’ve not mentioned Don much here before now because the last thing I wrote for my previous, aborted blog was a piece on him. Now’s the time to make up for it!

That’s tomorrow, though! For today, we’ll be back celebrating this afternoon with cool little short bits. To your left here is the virtual snack table. When you come back later, grab yourself a silly hat and leave any presents there, too. The virtual punch line will be down the virtual hall next to the comic boxes. Just look for my friend DEREK; you’ll always find him with the punch line. Oh and, in the immortal misheard words of John Fogarty, "there’s a bathroom on the right."
Special thanks to Mike, Fred, Tony I., Sleestak, BFink, Jim E., Emilio, Mike S., Klaus, Kim, Brittany, Dee, John F., Matt, Allen S., Ricky, Alan B., Kevin, Tegan, Jim T., Chris, Jamdin, Curt, Sonny, Tony C., Michael K., John O., Mark B., Mark E. and all of you other very important readers I’ve missed! There have been times this past year when this blog was the most successful thing I’ve had going. I absolutely couldn’t have made it without each and every one of you!

    well...this is Alan B. Saying congradulations on one year of very informative blogging.

    Yes...I am one of the Linda Blair pervs.
    ALSO: I got my DVD copy of FEAR IS THE KEY [based completely on your persuasive review] and watched the film this past Sunday morning.
    My wife and I enjoyed the film a great deal. I liked seeing [the late] John Verson [again] as a bad guy and even though I had read he was in the film we didn't get Ben Kingsley at all until the end.
    I kept thinking he was 3 other actors. Weird.
    Still, a very good movie.
    But I must tell you that a 'thin' Dolph Sweet really disturbed my wife. She only knew him from "Gimme A Break".
    The opening car chase may have inspired someone to create The Dukes of Hazard (shudder). And as you stated the last 5 minutes is pretty intense.

    Thanks Steve. I've only been a reader for 2 or 3 months but I'm now hooked.

    gee I have a typo or 2; It's John Vernon...better known as Dean Wormer in Animal House.

    I recommend Point Blank-67 which was Vernon's first theatrical film.

    He played the BAD GUY so well.

  3. Pffft. Linda Blair.
