Picture start.

imga11It’s been so much fun writing about movies at 50 Westerns From The 50s. Cowboy movies, that is. And after almost five years, I figured it was time to branch out a bit.

For this new blog, I wanted a name that served as an in-joke, lifted from some old film I love. Afghanistan Banana Stand, from The Hot Rock (1972), was taken. Pacific Edible Seaweed Company from It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963) was too long. Mayor Of Shark City, a line from Jaws (1975), just seemed weird, as did Half-Ass Astronaut from the same movie. Broadsword Calling Danny Boy, from another favorite film, didn’t do much for me. And I realized that the research station in The Thing (1951) isn’t called by name. Then into my head popped the Hannibal 8.

Things’ll get underway soon.
