A delightful 90 minutes



A delicious bit of television. The 21at Century updating of the Holmes tales is done with style, wit and depth. Along with obvious love and respect for the original stories. I have not enjoyed watching TV as much in quite a great while. Top notch acting by both principals and and supporting cast. Great fun all the way around. Two more episodes to go on PBS Masterpiece Mystery. Worth seeing!

New Sherlock.....and a Doctor. Who?

This bit taken from the superb new BBC updating of Sherlock Holmes that premiers pn PBS Mystery this Sunday.
For all the Dr Who fans in the house....

I do indeed exist, or at least fake it reasonably well. There will be more. Quite soon  

Train Time Machine

 Trains in Chicago. 

In B&W during the 1970's.  The CTA Evanston Express running south into Chicago on most of the same trackage used by the Interurban North Shore Line.  As you go thru Evanston, look off to the right at the C&NW bi-level pacing the train. Take a ride !

Because this one's been in my head lately

 Tom Waits with Somewhere, from West Side Story.....


One more. This one audio only. Waits with The Boss himself on Jersey Girl....
