More McCallum

And shouldn't there always be more McCallum? Rich The Guy Who Won The Nebula Award commented previously about the OUTER LIMITS episode in which David McCallum was obsessed with clocks. I knew it was either OL or TWILIGHT ZONE. I do agree that his talents were much under-appreciated. Also, to show how far a writer will go to make a few cents, I'm posting the evidence of my writing articles for the David McCallum Observer, which was similar in content to the John Agar Newsletter, and it was a time when I thought getting contributor copies in addition to five or ten dollars was really out of this world. Oh, Robert Mitch Newsletter, where were you then? And why isn't there one even now? Well, thing is, I looked back at the photo of McCallum and the clocks. Maybe you can see where I'm going with this already. Look at the lower right hand side of the photo. See that one clock that reads...11:11? Son of a bitch.

Growing up in Arkansas, I never heard of anything like these kinds of newsletters. not until I moved to the city.

Awww, Unca Waynie! :-)

Oh snap, it does say 11:11!

Thanks for the info on what the pic is from. He was also neat in "The Sixth Finger" or whatever that ep was called. It's funny, as a kid I used to think that those Outer Limits episodes were so intellectual and tight, but watching them now, most of them could easily be cut down to a half hour show without losing too much in the translation. Lots of lingering excessive enigmatic emoting in them sometimes, but I still love 'em! :o)

Well, I think it says 11:11 and eleven seconds.
