I’ll leave it as Scribez in the Blogroll until I’m sure they won’t switch back — or to something else!

The Bloodletting On Radio Continues…

May 13, 2007

First Imus, now this:

Asian Slurs End Shock Jocks’ Show on CBS

NEW YORK (AP) – One month after CBS Radio fired radio host Don Imus, it has permanently pulled the plug on a pair of suspended New York shock jocks for a prank phone call rife with offensive Asian stereotypes.

“The Dog House with JV and Elvis,” hosted by Jeff Vandergrift and Dan Lay, “will no longer be broadcast,” CBS Radio spokeswoman Karen Mateo said Saturday.

Kenneth Che-Tew Eng must be happy.

Sylvia Anderson Has A New Book

May 13, 2007

Sylvia Anderson, ex-wife of Gerry Anderson, whose contributions to his many series is a source of contention between her and Gerry (and a source of perplexity to fans) has a new book, My FAB Years.

The above link goes to the FAB Gear site which has a ton of Gerry Anderson and general SF TV merchandise. Oh, you’ll run up a big bill now!

Thunderbirds: Origins On Google Video

May 13, 2007

Aha! Google Video has another snip of that longer documentary about Gerry Anderson I mentioned in a prior post. This one focuses on the origins of the classic Thunderbirds TV series.

My God! It’s the first time I’ve seen the greatest director of Supermarionation, Alan Pattillo! (He also returned to do several Terrahawks episodes.)

This is a very bad clip; Gerry Anderson is cut off mid-sentence and Derek Meddings is also cut short at the end. Still, go watch.
