Dr.Chris Record Spotlight The Empire Strikes Back

Posted in 80s, music, sci-fi, StarWars, vinyl with tags , , , on May 4, 2018 by chrisdsav

It has been over a year since I did a record spotlight. Wow ….There honestly is no exscuse well in honor of Star Wars day we say May the 4th Be with you and well be doing TWO of these a month. Yup and what better sound track to start than THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Composed by the amazing John Willaims for George Lucas and directed by Irvin Kirshner, its considered the best Star Wars films. Albeit to argue one of the best films of all time. The most iconic score on the soundtrack is the Imperial March and Yodas theme. Below you can some ome liner notes that were included with records at the time and as of today some stilk have them. This was pre internet. Today you can just look at pictures of Star Wars when ever you want. I had to include that awesome picture of Boba Fett and Darth Vader talking to each other about the fate of Han Solo. Fett was such a minor character in this film but so awesome they had to out him in this cool full color image in side the album.

My copy was found at a flea market in Fitchburg Ma. along with a mint copy of the original soundtrack. I also found soundtracks to Star Trek 1 and 2. The record it self is in MINT condition the sleeve however is a bit roughed up as you can see in the image above. You get both classic posters for the film on the front and back.

I love how the hiss of the vinyl and the an ticipation of Williams iconic score really brings this album to life.

I can’t reccomend this enough and its been rereleased a few times so tracking one down should not be hard.

Sectaurs – Warriors of Symbion

Posted in 80s, horror, Monsters, Toys with tags , on January 29, 2018 by chrisdsav

Death and Taxes are the only two things in life that will always happen and if there was a third it be boys love bugs. I know my son owns Hermit Crabs ( I know ‘not a bug) and loves Insects. In 1985 I never had a chance to buy these guys and I was always in love with the toys.

The commercials had their own story that ran alongside the He-Man Power of the Sword Movie when it first premiered and I was more interested in Sectaurs than I was learning He-Man had a twin sister. In 1990 I discovered the comic book by Marvel inthe 25c bin of my local comic book store. but still never the toys. Now so many years later I have at long last discovered this amazing new kickstarter,  They are only producing the two main core figures for now but lets hope we may one day see the rest of these awesome toys return.

Sectaurs is making a comeback with an all new line of modern 1/18 scale action figures!

Cinamon Hadley RIP

Cinamon Hadley, the inspiration for the character design of Neil Gaiman’s Death of The Endless featured in his Sandman comics, has passed away from a long battle with cancer on January 6th. I’m pretty sad by this as Death is one of the best characters to be created in comics and really helped me deal with some of my own personal problems.

Neil Gaiman on Death

“Death is the only major character whose visuals didn’t spring from me; that credit goes to Mike Dringenberg. In my original Sandman outline, I suggested Death look like rock star Nico in 1968, with the perfect cheekbones and perfect face she has on the cover of her Chelsea Girl album.But Mike Dringenberg had his own ideas, so he sent me a drawing based on a woman he knew named Cinamon Hadley — the drawing that was later printed in Sandman 11 — and I looked at it and had the immediate reaction of, “Wow. That’s really cool.”

 

She had been diagnosed with cancer of the colon, which went into remission but returned. The friends of designer Cinamon Hadley have been celebrating her life and mourning her passing.
