Hill Street Blues

It established an entire genre of gritty cop drama. The writing was excellent and the casting, down to the extras, was impeccable. This was also the first major television production to incorporate the use of the handheld camera, to provide more realism. The overlapping of dialog was pioneered here also. Just like real life.

This was the pilot for the show. HSB won about every award for acting and production but was never a ratings winner. But NBC-TV kept it on for 7 seasons (146 episodes). Watch closely and you'll see quite a few young actors getting their first major break. You might just learn where the tag line on each of my posts came from.

Over The Limit?
Please don't drink and drive

"Let's all be careful out there!"


May your life be long

May your heart be true

May your path be clear
and your skies be blue

May your soul be happy
and your spirit light

May you know deep joy

May your dreams take flight

Don't you hate when you forget to set your alarm? STORY

I ran into a bit of a problem yesterday about "bug bombing" my place. For some reason, my kitty decided that he wasn't going to leave the house. I tried for almost 45 minutes to capture and place him in the very large storage shed. For my efforts, I have bites, and claw marks from my elbows to my finger tips. My landlord even lent me a set of heavy gloves. He bit and clawed through them. For the rest of the day, it was growl (I didn't know cats could growl) and hiss and striking out at me if I got within 5 feet of him. We are talking reversion back to his (large) African ancestors. At this moment, close to midnight, he is asleep at my feet. He weighs, maybe, 5 pounds. He kicked my ass!

The rest of the structure was bombed successfully. So, unless I want everybody else's critters moving in with me, I have got to do it later this week. Going to have to trick him. If my next post is from MMMC, you'll know he kicked my ass again.

Planning on partying tonight? Do us all a favor - call a cab! Nothing ruins a good drunk than waking up in a jail cell, or worse.

I'll be here tomorrow, if you can navigate your way back. Keyboards do make a hell of a racket when you are hung over. Even louder than a cat stomping on wall-to-wall carpeting.

Heard this great line yesterday:
A government is a body of people.
Usually, notably, ungoverned
