    Herr General: Last week I had to attend an in-service workshop and part of the lecture included was workplace safety; we had to watch an old video entitled "It's A Jungle Out There"--which I found amusing and, unfortunately, found myself laughing out loud at inappropriate moments .

I think I ended up watching that same safety video at my old place of employment Meek! And I too couldn't help myself from laughing out loud numerous times. There would be scenes of klutzy and careless goons carrying boxes down a flight of steps only to fall head over heels down the entire flight of steps. It was probably funny only because you knew it could happen to you too. Or it already might have. Not surprisingly, the safety instructor showing the film didn't share my same sense of humor.

Taken from the IMDB: Author: bainslie from brisbane, australia -

"The Veil", a 1950's pilot series introduced by and starring Boris Karloff, concerned itself with ghostly tales and psychic phenomena. Although it was never taken up as a full series by a major network it still was quite entertaining. It is worth watching because of Karloff's own unique acting style and also because of the topics covered. One gets the impression that if it had been given a run then "The Veil" would have developed into a long running series investigating topics so well covered by future shows such as "The Twilight Zone" and "The X Files". It is a short series that a public television company would find useful in running in order to capture for a time a loyal viewing audience interested in ghostly tales or psychic phenomena. One of its best shows was the one about Jack the Ripper which will certainly get its viewers once again reading up books on this topic. A series well worth watching.

"The Veil" (1958)

Season 1, Episode 1: Vision of Crime

FROM IMDB

Original Air Date: 1958

While on a boat trip to Paris, a man has a vision in which he sees his brother murdered. He returns to England to discover that his brother has been killed and that a man he knows isn't the murderer is the prime suspect. Who is the murderer and how will the man ferret the killer out without mentioning his vision and seeming like a nut-case? Find out by going "Behind The Veil".

Man is this thread bringing back the memories!! Like it was already mentioned, riding into the drive-in in the trunk of my brother's car, squooshed next to the cooler filled with adult beverages. A friend of mine used to make time-delay m-80's: he'd take a cigarette, push the fuse on the explosive through the center of the ciggie, light the gig, place it behind a commode, and wait for some unsuspecting stoner to use that stall and watch the fun! The best part was watching the rent-a-cops converge on the bathroom after the explosion, as we watched from a safe, guilt-free distance!

Ah, the good old days...

Mike

As you may know, many of us toy geeks can be somewhat nerdy in that most of our lives are centered around toys. This can present difficult circumstances upon dealing with members of the opposite sex. Just how does a toy geek respond when approached by a female for a date?  :o

The UMA cares. Here's what to do in this most difficult and awkward situation:

This film, The Empty Life, is my favorite educational film of all time! I've watched it over a dozen times, and it never gets old. There's so much to enjoy while viewing this film. A bored and uninterested father with a nagging wife and needy kid. Top it all off with a boring job and you've got a recipe for an EMPTY LIFE! Dig the somber saxophone soundtrack too! Depression is fun with The Empty Life!

If you can sit through that film more than once, you too might have an empty life.

Wow. I never thought of it that way. You may be right Nicole. My whole world has been turned upside down. I've got the nagging wife. I've got the needy kid (make that two of them). And I've got the boring job too. OMG! I do have an empty life! Arghhhh! Where's my bottle of beer at?

I need work with my self image. I need to see myself as others see me. Only then am I able to improve upon my self image.

Just watched this film the other night. I forgot just how ridiculous this movie was. And fun too! The Giant Claw would have made for a great jiggler monster. Highly recommended!

It was boring. I could have cared less about the whole thing. I don't know why anyone would even bother posting it? I'm gonna go stare at the wall for an hour.

Maybe The Empty Life is really a cleverly disguised zombie recruitment film. Living got you down? Hey, why not try living dead instead?
