    Sunshine is loosely based on the short story ‘Phoenix’ by Clark Ashton Smith, written in 1958. It can be read on the web here :-

    Sadly the film is very good for the first two thirds in showing people under extreme pressure. The last third is just silly and destroys most of the good work done up to that point. It doesn’t help that the film makes one or two basic science mistakes and crew members do a lot of very very stupid things.

    Thanks to Barb from San Diego for bringing up Disasterpiece Theater.

    I remember this show well. It ran on XETV Channel 6 Fridays (later Saturdays) at 11:30 pm from August 1980 to July 1981. More than 8 years before MST3K aired on local television, this show featured the worst films of all time with sarcastic comments scrolled on the bottom of the screen and corny skits between reels. They would also insert clips and sound effects during the movie. During “The Mole People,” they played Devo’s “Whip It” as a moleman slave is whipped.

    The show was created by two employees in XETV’s film department, Jay Curtis (host Sal U. Lloyd) and Bruce Mueller (The Other Guy). Some of the movies I remember were “Revenge of the Creature,” “Shriek of the Mutilated,” and “Tober.”

    This is about blood donating and having tattoos. In many states tattooing doesnt exclude you from giving blood because tattoo artists have to be licenced now. Check with your states red cross to find out if you are able to give bllod. I had a tattoo 1 week before giving blood and it was all good :)

    I’ll have to look into it Patty. The United Blood Services group didn’t take folks with a tattoo within the past 6 months. I’ll have to check with them again and see if they have changed their policy. Of course I’ll be going to Georgia which might have different rules. If I can I’ll be sure to donate!
