My friend Gary Matheson just told me that season 4 vol. 1 and 2 recently came out... Vol. 1 has the unaired pilot and vol. 2 has the pilot with the commercials (Although they cut the COKE billboard and commercial for rights reasons).
5 time Academy Award winning composer John Barry passed away Janurary 31st, 2011. He was well known for scoring 11 James Bond films including the BEST with Sean Connery and created wonderful cues like "007." He won his oscars for films including CHAPLIN, DANCES WITH WOLVES and BORN FREE.

My MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. collection that was used in the first soundtrack CD release. It was later used in the bonus features of the complete series DVD set BUT I wasn't credited. Not cool!
I have over three feet of snow in my driveway...due to the way the wind blows on my block. This was the third worst storm in Chicago history (just behind 1979 and 1967)..20.5 inches at MIDWAY. 22" inches in Elk Grove w/ Josh. Glad I picked up my medications Tuesday am! One of my doctors had to cancel my appointment with him.

My friend Zaven Keleshian posted this on FACEBOOK. We are seeing what may be the worst blizzard in Chicago since 1967 right now! The kind of blizzard that you see towards the end of RANKIN/BASS' RUDOLPH with elves spinning with packages and eskimos and igloos blowing around!
