  • Tuxedo Mark: Picked up "Riverdale" on DVD. Ripped the first disc to my hard drive and am gonna start reviewing episode 1 tomorrow. :)
    Today at 07:51:23 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Thanks DCR!  That's awesome news.
    Today at 06:11:20 PM
  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    Today at 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    Today at 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    Today at 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    Today at 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    Today at 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    Today at 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    Today at 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.
    Today at 06:06:23 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @The Downloader - What cash flow they have is coming not from the floppy titles, but from the digests and trade collections. They're just spewing out different one-shots and short-run series to see if they can find something that will last.
    Today at 01:20:05 AM
  • The Downloader: How can ACP continue to push out new titles, when they dont have the money to back it up?!
    August 16, 2017, 05:40:53 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Crap, I just remembered I forgot to pick up "Riverdale" today.
    August 16, 2017, 03:15:05 PM
  • BettyReggie: I asked Adam Hughes on twitter who is working on B&V #4 . He said Rachael Stott is working on it.
    August 15, 2017, 08:31:36 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: Riverdale season 2 billboard on Sunset Boulevard: [link]
    August 15, 2017, 07:57:03 PM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I'll pick mine up tomorrow at Wally World. Getting only the DVD edition for now, so I can rip the files to my computer and review the episodes for my blog.
    August 15, 2017, 04:31:34 PM
  • BettyReggie: Season #1 of Riverdale came today from target.
    August 15, 2017, 01:00:25 PM
  • BettyReggie: 50 days till October 5th 2017 New York Comic Con
    August 15, 2017, 07:45:25 AM
  • Tuxedo Mark: I didn't watch it, but, yeah, "Riverdale" won a lot. Good for them. :)
    August 14, 2017, 03:28:08 PM

I don't know what the sunday stumper is, but if it means we're supposed to try to identify the photos, then it's Donnie and Marie Osmond.

I thought it was that group that sang "Muskrat Love" or even possibly Shields and Yarnell back when they performed in a Moby Grape tribute band.

The Captain and Tenille. They had their own TV show at one time (as did Tom Jones, and Donny and Marie Osmond). Then again, so did Pink Lady and Jeff, so I guess it goes to prove nothing. Prize to the first person to identify Pink Lady (no fair Googling).

Prize to the first person to identify Pink Lady (no fair Googling)  I used to buy wholesale clothing from Jackie Goldberg "The Pink Lady" based out of LA. You never addressed Sheilds and Yarnell or the amazing popularity of Moby Grape tribute bands in the 70's.   :D
I don't know why I cannot quote this properly.

I don't know anything about Moby Grape tribute bands, but it must be true. Does this work for ya?

(JK!   :P)

I would have addressed Shields and Yarnell, but it's hard to mime on an internet forum like this one. I will say that to the best of my knowledge they were the first, last, and only mime group :-X to headline their own television series, but unlike the previously-mentioned acts, they weren't pop musicians who made the transition to headlining their own TV series, so I'm not sure how they got lumped in with the others.

PINK LADY, by the way, was a Japanese pop duo (similar to The Peanuts, who preceded them in the early 1960s by starring as the the Alienas, or more familiarly, the "Twin Fairies" in the 1961 Toho Films kaiju eiga, MOTHRA). Pink Lady (who spoke no English) were given their own television series on NBC in 1979, co-starring alongside second-string comedian Jeff Altman. The show was infamously pulled from NBC's lineup after only airing six episodes.

Moby Grape may be of interest to anyone into late 60's or early 70's psychedic rock.  Skip Spence (Jefferson Airplane) was a member. They were apparently influential at the time.  The Pink Lady I spoke of can be found at www.pinkladyhollywood.com.  She's pretty cool to my thinking.  I never heard of the Pink Lady tv series.  Whether it was good or not I'm guessing it was too "ethnic" for middle American tastes.

And yeah, I can't think of any other mime group(or person) that had their own show in tbe 70's.  Wasn't everyone high or sloshed on Blue Nun or that Riunite "on ice" Italian wine during that decade anyway?


I'm still having problems "quoting" on this thread.  What the heck?   :buck2:

Fair enough. I thought they were pretty obscure today, hopefully enough to be a "stumper". But on the other foot, I've never heard of your Pink Lady, either. What's her claim to celebrity, again? Motivational speaking, or is that more of a sideline?

It was some type of puzzle or riddle that appeared in a Sunday paper somewhere?  Would you elaborate somewhat?  That info may help us to answer your original question.
