Life On Mars - Series Premiere Tonight!

Life On Mars

This is the amazing new show I spent most of the summer working on! Don't miss it! Tonight on ABC! 10pm est/9pm central

The "Teaser"...



Sneak Peek at the Premiere Episode...




A look behind the scenes with Production Designer Stephen Hendrickson...

(Please note the columns - all 21 of which were lovingly handcrafted by your's truly)



So how exactly, does one recreate 1973? Props are essential!



Technology was primitive in 1973, compared to what we have today. Personal Computers hadn't been invented yet. Then a company called Atari introduced an amazing new video game! To play it, click here.

Life On Mars was an absolute pleasure to work on. I honestly can't remember the last time I got paid for having so much fun! Everyone involved in the show, from the Producers to the Cast to the Crew worked together in a spirit of mutual support and creativity.

Then there's fellow Marine, Harvey Keitel...what can I say that I haven't said already? Harvey is a real "guy", a man's man, and it was both an honor and a privilege to meet him. You can read about our meeting here, Harvey Keitel, Once, Always, Forever...

Folks, I can't recommend this show enough! Tune in tonight and every Thursday night for Life On Mars, on ABC at 10pmest/9central!

Sarah Palin - A Madonna and Child Disconnect




Kitchen Window Woman, of The Dishpan Chronicles has written an excellent post regarding Sarah Palin's parenting skills. I would like to invite everyone this morning, to stop by The Dishpan Chronicles. It's well worth the time.









Kitchen Window Woman is a Mother, a Wife, an Honorably Discharged Veteran of the United States Army and a Resident Scholar of The American Patriot Institute.)

An Excerpt from Sarah Palin - A Madonna and Child Disconnect


We've all been talking, we mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters, friends, and an equal number of men (who are not taken in by Sarah's teasing winks) about Sarah Palin's strange parenting behavior. Her treatment of her offspring brings to light yet more evidence that she does not possess the character, values, or skills necessary to serve as Vice President or President.


Candidate Palin's children have been used as political fashion accessories for years as their mother, a perpetual campaigner, has staircased herself toward the most demanding political office possible, the American Presidency.

Sarah Palin - Terrorists of Her Own



Keith says it better than I ever could...



Well, Keith, here's where you and I disagree. I don't feel sorry for Sarah. I don't feel sorry at all. This woman wants to be Vice President of the United States! The Republi-cons are so afraid she'll screw up they won't even allow the media to talk to regular folks who show up at her rallies! ( Press Kept Under A Watchful Eye, St. Petersburgh Times Blog) God knows we wouldn't want to see ole Sarah through the "filters" of the Main Stream Media! Hell, someone might ask her about Todd and Joe Vogler, (the traitorous leader of the Alaskan Independence Party who advocated Alaska's secession from the Union), or Troopergate, or where Canada is - she actually refered to Afghanistan as "one of our neighbors"!

Don't worry Sarah. I'm going to do my best to make sure that the readers of this blog, at least, get a very clear picture of exactly who you are - a vindictive bitch in the mold of Dick Cheney sans brains.

More to come.

Ok, Sarah Barracuda - The Gloves are Off!



During last Thursdays Vice Presidential debate, Sarah Barracuda repeatedly scolded Joe Biden for looking backwards, toward the past rather than the future. Now, in fact, it is Sarah who is looking backwards, with the blessings of the RNC and the McCain campaign. And why not? Like McCain and the Republi-cons she represents, she has no plans for the future other than to continue the failed policies of one George W. Bush. In doing so, she has sunk to new lows not even approached by the Swiftboat Liars who attacked a decorated veteran's honorable service. Now she is trying to tie Barack Obama to William Ayers, a former member of the Radical '60's group, the Weather Underground. It doesn't matter to Sarah or her advisers or John McCain or the RNC that Obama was 8 years old at the time and hardly in a position to "pal around" with anybody other than his fellow 2nd or 3rd grade schoolmates.

So, okay Sarah, the gloves are off. First I'm going to deal with your running mate and Father figure, John McCain. Then I'm coming after you, your family, your youthful indiscretions, your scandals, your blatant lies. And I won't be polite and I won't take it easy on you. You're a big girl now. You think you're qualified to lead this country, so pull on your Big Girl panties and take it like a man.

Let's begin with a short documentary illustrating John McCain's involvement in the Savings & Loan Scandal of the '80's:
(The video below can be viewed or downloaded at Keatingeconomics.com. For the first two hours since this documentary was released, I could not get any version of it to play past 1:21! I called Obama campaign Headquarters and reported this. I finally got it to play, however, there are still audio drops, which the Producers have said they are working on correcting. Since this is a feed from YouTube, it should automatically include those fixes when they occur. I will, however, check back and repost this video just in case. If you have any problems viewing this, please go to BarackObama.com, find your regional Headquarters and call them. Tell them what Internet Service Provider you use, ie: AOL, Comcast, etc., and describe the problems you are having.)






Now let's take a look at the Five most common myths concerning John McCain's military service:





The excerpt below is from Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson's article concerning Senator McCain's status as a "maverick":

Make-Believe Maverick
A closer look at the life and career of John McCain reveals a disturbing record of recklessness and dishonesty

By TIM DICKINSON
Posted Oct 16, 2008 7:00 PM


At Fort McNair, an army base located along the Potomac River in the nation's capital, a chance reunion takes place one day between two former POWs. It's the spring of 1974, and Navy commander John Sidney McCain III has returned home from the experience in Hanoi that, according to legend, transformed him from a callow and reckless youth into a serious man of patriotism and purpose. Walking along the grounds at Fort McNair, McCain runs into John Dramesi, an Air Force lieutenant colonel who was also imprisoned and tortured in Vietnam.

McCain is studying at the National War College, a prestigious graduate program he had to pull strings with the Secretary of the Navy to get into. Dramesi is enrolled, on his own merit, at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in the building next door.

There's a distance between the two men that belies their shared experience in North Vietnam — call it an honor gap. Like many American POWs, McCain broke down under torture and offered a "confession" to his North Vietnamese captors. Dramesi, in contrast, attempted two daring escapes. For the second he was brutalized for a month with daily torture sessions that nearly killed him. His partner in the escape, Lt. Col. Ed Atterberry, didn't survive the mistreatment. But Dramesi never said a disloyal word, and for his heroism was awarded two Air Force Crosses, one of the service's highest distinctions. McCain would later hail him as "one of the toughest guys I've ever met."

On the grounds between the two brick colleges, the chitchat between the scion of four-star admirals and the son of a prizefighter turns to their academic travels; both colleges sponsor a trip abroad for young officers to network with military and political leaders in a distant corner of the globe.

"I'm going to the Middle East," Dramesi says. "Turkey, Kuwait, Lebanon, Iran."

"Why are you going to the Middle East?" McCain asks, dismissively.

"It's a place we're probably going to have some problems," Dramesi says.

"Why? Where are you going to, John?"

"Oh, I'm going to Rio."

"What the hell are you going to Rio for?"

McCain, a married father of three, shrugs.

"I got a better chance of getting laid."

Is this the man we want as our next Commander In Chief?

Absolutely not!


Later: What Sarah Barracuda would rather you didn't know...


Gee, I can hardly wait...
