"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, and I hope everything on my list will be there".
There's lots of Christmas Specials but we all know Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special is the best. Featuring the regular characters from the Playhouse, as well as loads of guest stars, Pee-wee teaches Little Richard how to ice skate, forces Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello to make Christmas cards, ignores a phone call from Dinah Shore, tells Whoopie Goldberg she can't be on the Special, goes for a sleigh ride with Magic Johnson and even meets Santa Claus. Plus, there's Charo and lots of fruit cakes! Now that's a Christmas Special!

There were some good films this year, nothing incredible that I've personally seen in theaters, but still some good entries. Genrocks gives a look at all the films this year - the good (Win Win, X-Men: First Class, Poetry), the bad (Super, Sucker Punch) and the ugly (I'm talking to you, Adam Sandler).

Roy Rogers passed away on July 6, 1998 but I, for one, will never for get the ever-smiling cowboy that made me want to ride a horse and save the day. Roy Rogers was more than a cowboy, he was a hero and an example to all young boys of what it means to be a man.

The Muppets opened in theaters last week and it's Roy Roger Month here on DSTG! so it seems only appropriate we feature Roy Rogers on The Muppet Show from 1979.

Don't watch movies on regular television. Besides Pan and Scan, commercials and deleted scenes, you also have to hear ridiculous re-edited dialogue.

Roy Rogers was a hero to kids around the world, including one young Elton John. From his 1977 concert in Wembley Empire Pool, Sir Elton sings "Roy Rogers" from his 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
Sometimes you dream, sometimes it seems
There's nothing there at all
You just seem older than yesterday
And you're waiting for tomorrow to call
You draw to the curtain and one thing's for certain
You're cozy in your little room
The carpet's all paid for, God bless the TV
Let's go shoot a hole in the moon
And Roy Rogers is riding tonight
Returning to our silver screens
Comic book characters never grow old
Evergreen heroes whose stories were told
Oh the great sequin cowboy who sings of the plains
Of roundups and rustlers and home on the range
Turn on the T.V., shut out the lights
Roy Rogers is riding tonight
Nine o'clock mornings, five o'clock evenings
I'd liven the pace if I could
Oh I'd rather have a ham in my sandwich than cheese
But complaining wouldn't do any good
Lay back in my armchair, close eyes and think clear
I can hear hoofbeats ahead
Roy and Trigger have just hit the hilltop
While the wife and the kids are in bed

I recently read Roger Corman's autobiography, How I Made A Hundred Movies In Hollywood And Never Lost A Dime, which is not only highly informative of how Hollywood works but is also a fun read. A new documentary is coming out, Corman's World, and it looks fantastic. You get Robert DeNiro, Ron Howard, Pam Grier, Tom Hanks and Peter Fonda reflecting on working for Roger Corman, all with footage from his infamous movies.
