Stan Lee is gone

The legendary comic book creator Stan Lee has passed away at 95. I grew up with many of his creations and he lived long enough to witness his iconic super heroes conquer the cinemas as well, which must have felt good for him (well deserved, and I always enjoyed seeing his little cameos). There are many books out there covering his life and career, the one you see here is the German edition of the Stan Lee “Marvel Treasury Edition”.

I take my hat off for Stan.

Saving space

Posted: November 13, 2018 in General, Hobby, My countryside dream, TV & Movies

Took these shots in the early hours this morning in my new place. I have undertaken a project that will save a lot of space as far as my DVD collection is concerned. A good chunk of it will from now on be handled like this (I think these images speaks for themselves). I just organize it all in categories like Western (as seen here), WWII (Classic & Modern), Comedy, Sci-Fi etc etc. I have done about 35% of the collection at this point and I will leave about 10% as it is in the original boxes. At the end of the day it will be a good solution and I quite like browsing the covers in this way.

It is raining Elvis Vinyl Soundtracks at the moment and some of them have very nice covers. This one – “Girls! Girls! Girls!” (from 1962) – is one of them. Goes straight into the old collection.

Got to love this cover (and magazine). German publication Kult! (issue) 19. Nice shot of Olivia Newton John on the cover.

The GG (Guy Gene) approves.

Garbo

Pretty happy about the end result of me framing this Greta Garbo magazine cover. I knew when I bought this magazine (some time ago now, I did blog about it) that I would. The Garbo shot is just stunning, and “Queen Christina” (1933) is one of my all time favourite movies. When you are about to enter the TV room in my new place you are greeted by The Queen. Quite appropriate.

I like the way the golden frame suits the crown she is wearing.

Nice Supergirl cover

This looks like a good read. UK publication SciFi Now (issue) 151. Supergirl is a pretty decent show and I see other topics of interest as well.

BondCalendar19

The Official James Bond Calendar for 2019 looks pretty smart. I might go for this one this time around.
