"Perhaps I can clarify these issues somewhat, since it is all tied to the Ann Kirschner article. The letter that is used for verification of the gun is the letter that Ann mentions near the end of her article, where Boyer came out and showed her…"

"Yes, Murray, I too am getting beyond the Hip-zone in every way possible. Fortunately, I do have my kids who at least keep me posted on the new, or semi-new (they are both in their 30s now). Coachella is an offshoot of Lollapalooza and Woodstock. A…"

Michael commented on Bob Boze Bell's blog post The Glenn Boyer Auction tomorrow
"Yes Ed, I did care enough to look. What I found was a claim from the auction house that they have a letter from Colt stating that the weapon was made in Earp's time frame, like thousands of others and letter from Boyer, which in my opinion is…"

Krazy Kat, Part II

April 21, 2014

   One of my old neighbors (he lived up on Morning Star), sent me a letter way back in 1994, encouraging me to join the NCS (National Cartoonist Society) who were about to go to their annual convention in Washington, DC. I had just been fired from KSLX radio and suddenly had time on my hands, thus the invite. I have this letter tacked to my wall over my computer in the studio and I just noticed last week, that Jerry was doing a pretty mean George…

Coachella Fellas In Need of Some Funky Cold Medina

April 20, 2014

  Funny feature in The New York Times today under the heading, "Coachella Flaunts Its Masculinity." Six photos of some very "masculine" dudes follow, along with these descriptions of said dudes:
"Kelson Berkus was clad in aqua giraffe-print swim trunks (source: "probably Fred Segal").
"Ryan Greeley, in a vintage mesh cardigan and floral swim trunks."
"Robert Ackroyd, in a white-on-white…

Mole Negro at Otro

April 19, 2014

   Back from our quick babysitting gig with young Weston. We flew into Pasadena so his mom and dad could go downtown LA and see Nico Case and have a wild night at the Ace Hotel. We had to get up at two in the morning for a feeding (the young lad is only 10 months old) and it was a ton of fun. I'm serious. I wouldn't want to do it every night but we really enjoyed it.…

Adventures In Babysitting

April 18, 2014

   We woke up in Pasadena this morning and first thing on the agenda: watch the cars go by and point at them. The only thing more entertaining to Weston is to see dogs go by. Oh, my, how exciting.

Bob thanks for the invite to this site!!!
The Western's Channel is my favorite channel besides Turner Classic Movies. I love all the interstitial pieces you have done. I did one for Turner Classic Movies a few years ago. The Channel needs to use you more. Those pieces really make the channel more than just a movie channel. Now when I hear the word "tony" in an old western or book, I know what that means.

You can watch the TCM video about me here:

Thanks again for the invite to this site! I am looking forward to posting here and learning new stuff about the old west!

Happy New Year!

Thank you for the invitation, Mr. Bell. I am highly looking forward to the efforts being made to restore Alamo Plaza and other historical sites in the country.

All the best,

Bob...........Thanks for the invite. Having lived in the West almost my entire life, I too, have a true love of the old West. My wife and I watch mostly classic westerns instead of the drivel that modern TV promotes. This is my first post, and I'm not familiar, yet, with the website, but will keep tuned in to see what's happening..

I don't know whose idea this website was, but I'm gonna give you credit. I'll leave it up to you to pass it along to the right person or just take it for yourself. Thanks, man. Great website! As soon as all this snow melts, I'll start gathering pictures of every ghost town and point of interest in the state of Montana.
