1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    yeah, as a kid growing up in the south during the early '60s, he and that show were iconic.

    Two early Andy Grifftih performances are among my favorites - The naive, Christ-like Will Stockdale in "No Time for Sergeants" and the very mendacious and power-hungry "Lonesome" Rhodes in "A Face in the Crowd".

    Loneome Rhodes was a hell of a character.

    The early black-and-white opening credits were spoken by an announcer rather than using title cards.

    Very sad. I'm 27, but I grew up watching it because I watched Nick at Night religiously.
