Tightlip Entertainment: A Judgement

Image
More fun and games from Rick Olney and Tightlip. Straight after Tony Isabella issued his latest warning he recived a message from Olney which he made public and which read, in part, "You will be served with a legal injunction papers when you get to Syracuse in October, Mr. Isabella. I'm finally feeling up to fixing your little red wagon for you." What a charmer eh? As usual it's yet another empty threat. If Rick feels up to it he can sue me as well.

In the meantime the image you're seeing is worth a million words. It's a scan of the first page of the judgement that Jimmy T won against Olney. So much Olney playing the hard done by guy. Have a quick read and you decide. This is what happens when Olney gets into court - he loses. Big time.

As always go and look at the Unscrewed site and again, fair warning.

Reflections At 40

Ye Gods!!! I've just woken up to discover that I'm now 40!!!! I'm sure in high school no-one ever thought I'd make it to this milestone. When I hit first year, back in 1980, your status on your birthday was judged by what famous person you shared yours with. Mine was easy. It wasn't Ivan the Terrible, Leonard Bernstein, Sean Connery or Frederick Forsyth. Back then it wasn't even Elvis Costello and no-one had heard of Tim Burton. Nope, you see I had the coolest birthday of them all - today, same day as Gene Simmons.

It didn't get any better. Well, actually it did. Kiss fell out of favour in about 1982, after that having the same birthday as Elvis Costello kind of got me through. After that no-one really cared enough to bother. Such is life, my childhood wasn't always the happiest around, still I had as much fun as I could make, I learnt a lot and I read more books than most people would read in a lifetime. I also made myself promises.

Turning 40 is suppose…

Tightlip Entertainment Once Again, A Warning...

A while back my excellent pal Jimmy T shared his warnings about Rick Olney and Tightlip Entertainment. I know that it got a bit of on-line ink, and hopefully more than a few people got the heads up on this guy. Yesterday Tony Isabella posted the following warnings about Rick over on his MySpace page. As Tony wants to get the word out to as many people as he can I've decided to run it, in full. It now appears that Olney is now branching out to countries other than the USA so this warning is timely indeed. I'm not going to include any links in this post to anyone other than the Unscrewed website, and if anyone has an issue with that (read Rick Olney) then feel free to contact me directly and we'll discuss. Mind you if anyone wants to take a shot at Tony, then be warned, you'll be dealing with me as well. I'm sure there's some who think that's no great threat, rest assured there's others who know better.

Read on and be warned!

Damn, I'm Handsome, I'm Klerqy!

Image
Well knacker me sideways. It seems that more and more women are asking for Klerqy's little black paw in marriage on MySpace, including one girl who looks suspiciously like Sarah Michelle Gellar, although, if it is her, she's using an alias. Just to keep those girls keen I've put some more photos of the now Legendary Klerqy up here for all of those fine women to see. Bear in mind he's a picky cat, give him fish and he'll give you some fast claw action. He also likes licking his back and has been trying very hard to lick the back of his own head. One day he'll make it.

This is how both Klerqy and Merlin spend their days - curled up, paw in paw, asleep on the bed. This is the view you girls will get when you wake up and see Klerqy. You can see the look of utter amusement on Merlin's face, probably because straight after Klerqy wakes up he generally smacks Merlin in the head, resulting in a fight which, more times than not, Merlin wins easily.

This is as noble …

More fun and games from the classic Atlas/Seaboard line, via the Australian reprint company Gredown. According to the The Atlas Archives web site, The Brute was "Atlas-Seaboard's homage/swipe of Marvel's the Hulk. A blue sometimes-giant caveman murders and suchlike, but the general idea of a off-colored wildman is communicated."* The same review then goes on to point out that the general story idea for the title was a lift of the movie Trog. I can't comment on that as I've never …

Groucho Marx; 1890 - 1977

Image
Back in 1977 it was a bad week indeed. My mother was upset because Elvis fell off his perch, or more to the point, off the pot, but I was devastated to learn of the passing of one of my own true icons: Groucho Marx.

I adored Groucho and the Marx Brothers, in fact I still do. I love watching the movies and I enjoy reading about them. The more I discover about the family the more I'm impressed with what they managed to accomplish from where they came from and the problems that they had. On the surface of things they shouldn't have worked: a poor immigrant family, born into a slum. The oldest brother, Leonard (aka Chico) a womanising gambler, the second oldest, Adolph (aka Harpo) virtually illiterate yet exceedingly talented and then Julius (aka Groucho), acid tongue and full of self doubts and neurosis. Add the younger brothers to the mix, Milton and Herbert (or Gummo and Zeppo to you), each with their own problems and you see the dilemma. They should not have been a succes…
