An Important Content Announcement for SBBN Readers

Rita Hayworth in Cover Girl, courtesy Dr. Macro.   Long-time SBBN readers know that this blog began back on the Blogger (Google) platform many years ago, and along with She Blogged By Night came its slightly naughty sister blog, Technoknob. SBBN is now on my own website with a WordPress install but Technoknob, a blog…

The SBBN TSPDT1K Update

This is my They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They 1000 Greatest Films update, the last of the dull end-of-summer update posts for SBBN. I haven’t seen nearly as many of the films on my TSPTD1K list (or the supplemental Scorsese and IMDb lists) as I’ve wanted for various reasons, mostly because I’ve been spending a lot…

The End-of-Summer Boring Administrative Update

A few notes about SBBN that I’ve been putting off until there’s enough for one big post that’s easier to skip: * Recently, the blog has had a couple of periods of downtime due to some glitches which no one at my webhost can identify. My theory is that the most recent WordPress updates aren’t…

Slight Delay: The Monster and the Ape

Due to several deadlines and every appliance I have ever touched breaking down on the same day, there won’t be any Monster and the Ape this week. I hope it will resume next week, if time and work permits.

Update: The October Edition

Arbogast on Film may or may not be open for the holidays! We all love Arbo and are glad he returns to us, even if it is only once a year. My husband’s art blog The Fuzzy Skeletonian has launched his 2013 Octoberweenpaloozaganza: Crumple Mania, so stop on by! As always, his blog has gory…

Elsewhere: The Adorable Dogs and Hollywood Butts Edition

Things I’ve written elsewhere, and other stuff around the interwebs lately: My piece on The Human Factor (1979) as an underrated gem is up at Spectrum Culture. This is now available on MOD DVD at Warner Archives, in a print that I absolutely adored, because the grain was kept — all that delicious, nutritious 1970s…

State of the Blog: Summertime Edition

Welcome to a long overdue State of the Blog. What’s new for SBBN? Glad you asked. The thought of doing another serial right now gives me the kind of headache Robert Urich used to talk about on the TV machine. However, I do have a plan for a new Thursday series, not recaps of a…

State of the Blog: The Final Word on the Marie Prevost Project

This post is my detailed explanation of the brief notice I now have at the top of all my Marie Prevost Project posts. I continue to have problems with people wanting more info about Marie Prevost from me, and as much as I want to, I cannot delete my posts or even correct the mistakes…

Delays, Delays

Between backhoe-induced insomnia (long story) and several pending deadlines, I won’t be posting a Raiders of Ghost City recap this week. I intended on getting a nice picture from Raiders to post here in lieu of content, but when I did an image search, all the good images I found were from SBBN. Looks like…

Elsewhere and a Few Notes

I recently imported about 165 posts from the archives over here to the new blog, but the photos didn’t import, so please bear with me while I try to find the backups and restore pictures. My apologies if the mass import screwed with your RSS feeds. *** Here are a few items I’ve been enjoying…
