Like all good dictators, I'm a sweetheart as long as you play by my rules... and the basic rule for this site is "Do not ask me stupid questions I've already answered on the site."

Look, I appreciate comments and suggestions as much as the next web monkey, and I honestly don't mind anyone who politely asks me an honest question, who's already honestly tried to find out the answer on their own. But I don't know everything, and I simply don't have the time to do the often very basic, rudimentary research required to answer all the queries I receive. And half the time I don't even know what you're talking about -- believe it or not, I haven't memorized my entire site. Please be specific.

I'm growing pretty tired of people who expect me to devote my life to doing their web searches, homework or crossword puzzles.

And far too often the letters are poorly written, or even rude. When exactly were the words "please" and "thank you" outlawed, anyway? And what kind of person writes in all lower case or UPPER CASE?

What makes it worse, though, is that when I do manage to help someone out, I usually don't receive a word of thanks, or even a word of acknowledgement that the information I supplied was useful. And when I'm not able to help someone out, but do take the time to try to suggest to these people places where they could start their search (like my FAQs page, for instance), they are often, well, less than grateful ("Thanks for nothing" was one of the kinder replies.). Like, gee, sorry for trying to help!

Honest, despite the morons, I'd love to answer everyone personally, but I just don't have the time anymore.

Or increasingly, the patience.

So, from now on, unless you write me a particularly compelling and respectful letter, I'm not personally answering. Particularly if your letter contains:

  • obscenity
  • all caps or all lower case
  • requests for purchasing info on movies, radio or television episodes, books or comics. Sorry. I DO NOT SELL VIDEOS.
  • requests for author's or contributor's addresses or phone numbers.
  • indiscriminate general mailings -- you have something to ask me, ask me by name
  • and by the same token, sign your real name. Flamingbuttocks@hotmail.com is not a real name.
  • requests for info that is already answered on my site (that's why I have a FAQs page and a Search Engine) or readily available on the web. Laziness and incompetence is not quite as charming as some of you lardasses think.

What I will do, though, is post your requests here. Maybe some of my readers with more patience and time on their hands than me will take pity on your wretched souls. Sorry about this, but I hope you'll understand.

You might also read the Introduction. It couldn't hurt. In fact, a good percentage of queries I receive could be answered if people would just READ CAREFULLY.

READERS: Here are some of the letters I've received. If you happen to know the answers to their questions, be my guest. I DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING! And feel free to pass along the info to us as well, if you think it's of interest to our readers. These letters are reproduced (unless otherwise noted) EXACTLY as I received them.

Subject: Sal Mineo (guest appearances)
From: Aaron Shore <acshore86@yahoo.com>

My name is Aaron Shore, and I am an 18yr-old fan of the - sadly-to-say - late Sal Mineo. I happend to notice on a website you posted information about a show from 73-74, entitled "Griff," in which Mineo guest starred on. I have been trying to find out what his character's name was. All I know is that the episode he guest starred on was entitled "Marked for Murder (a.k.a. "Prey") and it aired 10/27/1973, but I wanna know the name of his guest starring role's character.

Also... both on the Internet Movie Data Base, and in Sal's biography, it stated he was in 3 episodes of "Hawaii Five-O". I have only found records for 2 of his roles. What was his character's name in his guest starring role in the episode "The Jinn Who Clears the Way" which aired 10/10/1972?

Sincerely & Graciously,
Aaron Shore

I have been watching for the Cannon series to be released on DVD, I have no idea who to ask about this.

I consider Cannon to be one of the best detective series ever aired and I can not understand why so much junk is being draged out and put on DVD and the quality shows are being ignored. If you get a chance to reply my e-mail address is jdodrill@ellcon-national.com .

Thanks for giving me a place to vent

From: "Dorothy Ellen Whitsell" <verdew818@hotmail.com>

Sherlock Holmes, Elvis Presley, and Kinky Friedman are a Holy Trinity.

Look at some of the many coincidences of the 1st 2 in the Trinity.

Sherlock Holmes = The Master (title of Jesus Christ), subcutaneous needle injecting cocaine/morphine addict; close friend of Dr. John Watson, retired Army surgeon. Hound of the Baskervilles. Holmes "dies" saving mankind from evil geniuses Moriarty and Moran (mortality, death), and later is resurrected from the dead.

Elvis Presley, The King (title of JC too), submuscular injecting multiple drug addict; manager Col. Tom Parker was retired from the Army like Watson; Hound Dog. Whereas Holmes visited the head lama (Dalai Lama) in Lhasa; Elvis Presley born same year as living DL (1935). Elvis Presley "dies" but is reborn and seen living many times and is immortal, his name Elvis is rearranged as Lives. 

Holmes is to mystery/detective literature as Presley is to rock n' roll and/or country-western, not the originator, yet the most famous and most beloved of all time, the essential embodiment or divine incarnation in human form of these respective arts. Presley's initials = EAP, same as Edgar Allan Poe, originator of the detective story.

Kinky Friedman as the Holy Spirit, master of both rockabilly/country western and mystery/detective fiction. Kinky Friedman wrote and sang of the Trinity of Jesus, Elvis, and Coca-Cola, inspired by his Peace Corps experience where a remote Borneo ("Born Again") tribe knew those three instantly but nothing else of civilization. Coca-Cola's first formula contained Holmes's beloved cocaine in a weakened form. KF's cigars in a ceramic Sherlock Holmes head is of course a tribute to Holmes's encyclopedic knowledge of cigar ash, a symbol of human mortality as in Ash Wednesday rites of certain churches when ash is spread on the forehead. KF was obviously sent to us as the Comforter by the Master and the King, a hope for rebirth from the ashes of life.

Subject: DIDN'T I MEET HIM IN THE UK?
From: rosyboa@pacbell.net

Hi there. Just quietly going mad because I know, I know that there was a mystery novel years ago--maybe in the 80's--about a character named Monk who hated using his first name, had been a detective, was seriously OCD etc. It seems like he had also lost his wife and mourned her because it was his fault in this version.

It was a British novel, and rather Joe Orton stark 'n' gritty...when I saw the series come out, I said "Ha! they revised him for prime time!" because the character had been bisexual (covered in the book) and trolled for rent boys, but couldn't quite break off with his former fiancee and was full of angst about it all. Rode a motorcycle and kept his watch in a tupperware container at night because he couldn't stand the ticking.

I can NOT find this book listed anywhere. I am a little troubled, as I always am when someone claims credit for a "creation" that is not all his own--as if it matters, but now I just want to find the original. One of those "I'll never sleep tonight if I don't!" moments.

Do you have any knowledge of this original book?

Thanks,

Subject: historical data
From: "Ivan Garrett" <ivangarrett@hotmail.com>

Dear Sir;

Many years ago, (35 or so) I was digging around in the forbidden area of my dad's closet and came across a few magazines that caught my attention. I am sure I looked through them with wild abandon and then semi-carefully put them back, just like dad had them. ;-)

Anyway, I would like to know which magazines they were. Please allow me to give you a brief discription of what I remember.

I remember a cover with a young woman on a hospital type bed and an evil Dr. pouring giant pincher beetles from a pail of some sort onto her stomach and chest. She is on her back with her head towards the lower right corner and her feet going away from us toward the middle left of the page. Of course she is in a panic and seems to be struggling to get away from the bugs and the Dr., but the ropes keep her tied down. Her dress seems o be torn and tattered along the top allowing her breasts to be nearly completely exposed.

If you could help me with any info, it would be really great. I have no idea how old the mags were, nor the titles, characters or any thing else.

Thanks for your help.

I have found your website to be interesting. I like fiction writing and Rex Stout is one of my best writers.

I am wondering as to how I can have a collection Rex Stout's books.

Please assist me.

Yours sincerely

Constantine Chimakure

With all do respect, whom ever you are, Mr. Urich will always be "SPENSER: FOR HIRE" Mr. Urich played a better character "SPENSER" than Joe Montanga. No disrespect to Mr. Montanga, but Robert Urich will ALWAYS be #1 as "SPENCER" and will be forever missed as himself.

Do you know how I can order audio tapes of Jim French's "Movies for the Mind?" I heard them advertised on the radio with an Issquah address ... but lost the address. I commute alot on I-5 and wanted to order the tape set. -

Many tape and CD sets of Jim French programs, including Harry Nile and Kincaid, The Strange Seeker, as well as the Movies for Your Mind tape sets, can be ordered directly from Jim French Productions.

Hi,

Do you know if the manuscript of the unpublished Crimbusters Brain Wash is available anywhere on the internet? I was hoping, like unproduced or first draft screenplays, it was available for download...

I saw Mr. Monk last night and want to know if he is going to be on local T.V. or was this just a tease and will I have to get cable to watch him. It's the first time I've been excited about the fall line up, that is, if he is included.

Subject: QUESTION
From: "Clair, Betty" <Betty.Clair@gov.calgary.ab.ca>

I am an avid fan of Parker's books. I have noticed all of his dedications are to his wife Joan. Lately I have noticed a difference in his dedications. Has something happened to Joan? In Shrink Rap he states : Joan, Dave and Dan I will tell them I remember you.

What does that mean? In a previous dedication it was only to the boys and the comment was: For bringing their father back. I understand his need for privacy - but it is obvious that something has happened to Joan.

Can you explain? - Please respond by return e-mail.
