Not much on TV this week, what with the Olympics, and all. I've been carrying on gawking at TWIN PEAKS, again. There's so much in it, I've noticed a lot of things I missed, years ago. I also enjoyed the silly old religiose epic DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS. Saw so many films like that when I was a kid. They were sort of the superhero franchises of the day. The bloke playing a colossally camp Caligula, Jay Robinson, was really hilarious. Like Victor Mature and Michael Rennie,
he was carried over from THE ROBE. I was also impressed by the very tall, handsome 'Glycon', Detemetrius' pal, and his gorgeous voice...Turned out he was William Marshall ('Blacula' !)
There was a pretty strange curio as well, THE ROLLING STONES ROCK & ROLL CIRCUS from 1968. Everyone was so young it was frightening. A lot of big time acts took part, like John Lennon with 'Dirty Mac', including Yoko Ono rolling on the floor in a black sack.
I continue to feel extra-depressed. All my ailments are giving me gyp, and I'm haunted by the fear of death, disaster, and senility. Baw yubba!
