According to the person behind this tumblr, I have a lot of admirers. It’s not true, but that’s beside the point. The raison d’être for this post is to promote her writing work (and trust me it is excellent). She also informs me that she does requests, although she neither specifies what for and/or at what price… I suppose that is something to discover and negotiate for yourselves. Have fun haggling, folks! ;)
Today I did something I’d been talking about doing for ages; going to Whitstable to see some of the old haunts of my favourite actor, Peter Cushing. What prompted me to finally get of my butt and do it was an exhibition at Whitstable’s compact museum devoted to Peter’s Centenary year. He was born…
This is a lovely account of a visit to Whitstable to attend the events in commemoration of Peter Cushing in his Centenary year, accompanied by some wonderful photos. Well worth taking the time to read. Many thanks to the gentleman behind the Pin-up girl tumblr for sharing his experience here with all of us. Such recollections are the next-best thing to actually being there, and very much appreciated, at least by one lifelong Peter Cushing enthusiast who sadly cannot be there to witness all this first hand.
I’m fairly sure I’ve posted this one before, but it doesn’t matter. Great photo of Vincent Price.
