Re: DaOrtiz a la Carte

There is also a video missing from a David Britland column from a few months back. I think it was for a revolving colour change. Wasn't available either from the app or the online version.

Re: The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox

While we're on all matters macabre, let's not forget the passing today of George A Romero, who scared the bejasus out of me many years ago with Night of The Living Dead.

And back to the Tarodiction Toolbox - it's a gift that just keeps on giving.

Well done Mr Farmer.

Re: Martin Landau

I remember him in a UK TV series Space 1999 in the seventies, which I'm sure would have played in the US. As I recall another Mission Impossible alumnus was also in it - Barbara Bain.

Re: How to pronounce _____ ?

Can anyone help?

I've often wondered how one pronounces Bob Farmer - is it FARmer, FarMER or is there a French like pronunciation involved, possibly FarMAY?

Any help would be much appreciated.
