I grew up with this guy.  Parked in front of the B&W TV as a pre-schooler by my mom.

 

He came into and out of my life randomly during his late night show.  Always a blast to watch particularly through the marijuana haze of my late teens/early twenties.  The strangest mishmash of guests you'll ever see.  For all the trite, schmaltzy stuff; he was original as hell.  One of a kind.  He was never ever rude.

Goodbye Allie, Goodbye Allie, Goodbye Allie.  We hate to see you go.

 

At least I do.  One of those coaching names that will be forever intertwined with my tween/early adolescent years.

 

I remember being thrilled to see him dining with, I believe, Ed Koch at Fresco by Scotto (Just Fresco back then IIRC) in the 90s.

Interstellar

Center seat during an IMAX matinee.

 

Yes, the score is too loud, but didn't interfere with the dialogue for me.  The drowned out dialogue and concepts were explained later. and yes there are plot holes.and some of the story line can be incredulous.

 

I found it thought-provoking.  I wasn't disappointed in the least.  it was one of the better films and best Sci-Fi I've seen in quite some time.

 

Too many chances to give away spoilers.  I'll just say that I recommend it.

Sorry to hear this.  I first saw the band in during their first years inception.  Dressed in Western gear and singing a mix of country and doo-wop among other things.

 

I was fascinitad by their metamorphosis into a glitzy pop voice driven singing group.

 

So it goes.
