Roy, Dale, Scully & Kolchak

My Slow Takes

1. We went to a 70th birthday party, for our friend Roger, over the weekend. He has a large collection of cowboy hats so someone thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of the “guys” all wearing the hats. We all started singing “Happy Trails To You.” Unfortunately we couldn’t remember all the verses.

2. This is Roy and Dale Rogers singing the same song, only with all the verses.

3. Paul’s Bods has a link to “Model of Betrayal – The Plastic Panorama of Old Lwów (Lviv: The History Of One City #20).” This is a remarkable diorama complete with the history of the artist.

4. Episode 3 of the X-Files has Scully and Mulder looking for a “lizard-man.” At one point in the episode the intrepid duo are interviewing a prostitute who encountered the alleged villain. Mulder shows the victim a sketch of the “lizard-man.” Mulder asks, “did it look anything like this?” She answers, “no, the thing I saw had two eyes and was wearing underwear.” Scully, with her arms folded and looking at the victim with questionable eyes, asks her, “boxers or briefs.” This was the best Scully line in the episode.

5. There were other things going on in episode 3 of the X-Files. Keith Uhlich from vulture.com writes;

“More than most, the latest episode of The X-Files ("Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster," written and directed by Darin Morgan) is filled to the brim with Easter eggs, callback characters, and other assorted references. We've attempted to gather as many of these as possible …”

“The two paint-huffing stoners,
Mulder and pencils,
How Mukder dies, 
How Scully dies, 
Porta Potties, 
Guy Mann’s human wardrobe,
Alex Diakun, 
The red Speedo, 
The graveyard, 
Jack Hardy, 
Mulder’s ringtone,

Yes, I’m a devoted, dedicated, and enthusiastic fan of X-Files.

6. My second favorite science fiction series was “Kolchak: The Night Stalker.” Darren McGavin was an excellent choice for the part. I didn’t miss any of those episodes either.

7. Chris Stapleton - "Whiskey And You," a different type of tune.

Go over to "This Ain't the Lyceum,” where Kelly is hosting more takes.
