Man, these guys are dropping like flies. King Kong was one of the greats and a terrific presence and showman.

Pareidolia Effect

I took this shot of a seed pod coated with a thin veneer of ice. As I was editing the image I noticed a strange alien-looking face embedded under the ice. This is the so-called pareidolia effect. Or is it?

Booo hiss shame on the Academy. No recognition for Julie Adams and Dick Miller. Nice to see Stan Lee tribute.

RIP Peter Tork

RIP Dick Miller

The ever versatile Dick Miller has died. Miller had nearly 200 acting credits according to IMDb, but I best remember him from low-budget Corman quickies and Joe Dante films of the 80’s. He was 90.
