A Word from the Sven Administrator

Posted on by

Some of the blog followers have asked that fellow commenters post fewer wallpaper posts, animal photos, song postings, and whatever that have nothing to do with the blog topic or posts. Comments already go very far off topic which we have allowed to some extent as relates to the community here.

However these posts do create clutter and make it hard for some to scroll through or follow and respond to earlier threads and conversations.

Please also follow the standards we have set. They include no personal attacks, no politics, no promoting other networks or programs, no profanity or sexual innuendo, no repetitive complaining about the movie. We retain the right to remove posts and ban offenders.

I went on a Star Trek cruise this year. The tee shirt that got the most comments/likes? Why, Svengoolie of course!

Hey, Well Thank you. I have no idea how many times I've visited this page in the last, well probably since it's been up, and it never occurred to me to register, LOL.....only 27 more minutes till the movie starts. I'm ready, willing and able....going to start popping the corn soon, and settle in for "Abbott and Costello go to mars"...a Classic I saw when it was new! Yep, I'm that old... Thanks for the Welcome...

Thanks for showing the "Giany Claw". That movie sucks so much it was GREAT! I don't know why it so scared the crap out of me when I was young (several decades ago). Love the show!

Every month when I click on the "Win an Autographed Rubber Chicken" my laptop tells me it can't give me a secure connection because there is something untrustworthy in the link and that I should alert the website's administrator about the issue. I used to have no problems entering the contest in years past, but the block has been going on now since last summer or even longer. Any advice? Thanks.

I like it when you play the 40's & 50's black and white old horror movies.

I usually post from a laptop and not post during a show.

I have recently posted from my phone while watching the show.

It's like viewing the blog totally different.

Personal devices have little screens, don't they?
(I have trouble scrolling without shrinking and freezing the screen.)

My promise during tonight's show: I will keep my comments quippy and avoid going all teal deer and off topic.

(And no, I did not have my fingers crossed behind my back. I mean it. As Hoban "Wash" Washburne, pilot of "Serenity" in Josh Whedons iconic series "Firefly" once famous stated "I can be terse. Once in flight school, I was laconic." I can keep it simple, short and sweet and to the point, Hemingwayish even, and avoid the elaborate verbosity of Poe or Lovecraft although that elaborate word weaving can set a mood for a story, can't it? And stay on topic and not meander off -- oh! look! a squirrel's running across the telephone line!)
The February Svengoolie newsletter notes that "It’s the shortest month of the year" which brings up a greivance. February used to be a full 30 day month, until the Caesars Julius and Augustus stole a day so the months named after them, July and August, would be 31 days long. It's high time those stolen days were returned to their rightful owner, and give February 31 days on leap year as compensation for centuries of imperial oppression. It's not only fair play for February, but by removing two days from summer it will reduce global warming and save the planet.

I must suffer from a guiltily conscience because every time the admin says anything it is like a dagger to my heart even when it is something I’m pretty certain I’m not guilty of. Damn you admin why do you haunt me so?

How many comments rise to the level of the banned "repetitive complaining about the movie" noted above? Please answer ASAP so I can plan my weekend. Keep up this junk rotation of movies no one
wants to see even in a drunken stupor and I'll have to buy a DVD player.

I agree with the no personal attacks rule,
but what happened to the no personal checks rule?

(Oh, Svengoolie blog and store have separate rules. Nevermind.)

Maybe we could get a special blog thread for "wallpaper posts, animal photos, song postings, and whatever that have nothing to do with the blog topic or posts". Post those things on that thread and post stuff that's actually about the movie on the thread designated for that purpose.

Does anyone out there remember "The Claw" a character from "Get Smart" "Not the craw the Claw"

Welcolme from the frozen tundra of Ohio! Because of the brutal cold, my college was closed today, and will tomorrow, too. Meanwhile, I'm battling a nasty upper respiratory condition, so I'm glad to have the time off to recuperate. In the meantime, I'll be posting my weekly movie review, this, of THE GIANT CLAW, during Saturday's wee morning hours. Its surprising connection to a prestigious film noir classic will definitely be worth spotlighting!

Dale, looks like you were hit with the infection as well. I had it for about a week. I'm surprised it did not last longer. I hope you have the shorter version of it. Teachers and students all over my school are coming down with so many illnesses. Hope you feel better soon. Catch you tomorrow--stay warm!

Good Afternoon, Everyone:

And I will do my part as well! For example, I used to be divided on what I felt was the greatest movie ever made. The Intellectual in me felt "Citizen Kane" was it. The Romantic in me felt "Gone With the Wind" was it. I eventually settled upon "Casablanca" due to its nice balance of romance and intellectual outlook upon life.

But, then I saw: "The Giant Claw". And it became my "Rosebud". Frankly, I don't give a d..n if the rest of you believe me or not. And you can have Paris, too!

As for me, I can't wait until Saturday at 8 pm when Gail, Bonnie, the two cats and I will be watching our (ALL TIME) FAVORITE movie on Svengoolie!

The only redeeming part of the Flying Claw is the attack on the UN, but unfortunately it failed to level the building and stem the flows of anti-American sentiment...
