Hey Octie, I'm getting towards the end of The Prisoner and the show is starting to get super trippy. I watched "The Girl Who Was Death" and I was like......huh?! Otherwise most of the eps have been very good, and I love Patrick McGoohan.

Hope you're having a very nice time in Aussieland. ;)

Hey Octie! Saw that you are back in NZ, hope you had an awesome trip! It sounded like it would have been a blast!  ;D

Here's some Ringo Love for you! He's on Ready Steady Go!

^ *waves back* Hello!! ;D

So good to see you guys again! Thanks so much for the piccies, Randy and I_Will! So, so cute! ;D And thanks for the trip wishes (and the Aussie song, Hello Goodbye ha2ha )

The trip was awesome! :) We've been to Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Coff's Harbour and the Gold Coast - all lovely cities/places. Just did general sight-seeing, visiting museums and the zoo, went to the beach, and celebrated KE's 21st :) There was even a Beatles-related highlight: we went to a horror-themed cabaret restaurant called Dracula's, and they finished the show by doing a medley of Beatles songs! They even did Octopus's Garden! (and the fact that it was the band's drummer who sang it somehow made it even better ha2ha ). Lovely, lovely trip :) Should set me up good and proper for work on Monday ;)

Penny, about the Prisoner - yeah...... very trippy towards the end :o Some episodes have bits that I really can't understand. And to be honest, I didn't really like The Girl Who Was Death, or Living In Harmony, for that matter. I remember "Harmony" had a very creepy young guy in it :-/ But Patrick McGoohan is very cool indeed 8) KE and me usually watch Once Upon a Time or Hammer Into Anvil when we're in a Prisoner mood :)

^ Your trip sounds like it was so wonderful and fun. Lucky! How many times have you been to Oz? I've never been.

Yeah...I wasn't thrilled with The Girl Who Was Death; that ep is probably my least fave from The Prisoner. Living in Harmony was bizarre yet tolerable, but yes, kind of creepy. My fave ep at the moment is probably Many Happy Returns, but I'll probably reassess the eps once I rewatch them all. I don't understand everything from The Prisoner, but at least I understand it much better now than I did as a child.

I would LOOOOOOVE to hear your (and KE's) thoughts and interpretations on the finale, Fall Out. I've heard a lot of people hated it upon its first airing, but I found it both ridiculous and amazing. I liked it! AND they played a Beatles song AND Leo McKern was in that ep again! :D

Oh, Pat McGoohan. Man, I'm so bummed that he passed on last year, ugh. But I'm renting Danger Man/Secret Agent soon. ;) Have you guys seen that series?

Hey Pen's Labyrinth (your new name) :P (I'll drop it if you dont like it) :D :D :D

Thought you might like to glance at the last three youtubes on this site here http://betterthantv.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=tv&action=display&thread=208 (And yes this is my forum so FEEL FREE TO JOIN!!!!!!) *shameless plugg*

The prisoner is a great series! I'll give you my thoughts when I collect them hehe. I need to revist the Village.

Many Happy Returns is the one with the cat? I quite like The General - very clever (I even mentioned it in my project once!)

Heeeey...that's a funny name...I haven't watched the movie, though!

I signed up on your site (same username as here)...I am assuming you are Honey_Bunny? I will look around for sure. ;)

Many Happy Returns is The Prisoner ep where No. 6 actually escapes the Village (eh, sort of...) and returns to London. Can't remember a cat, although there was a black cat in Dance of the Dead. The General is a good one, although it made me laugh because the ending reminded me so much of Star Trek (Captain Kirk knows how to outwit machines).

So glad to meet other Prisoner fans; I'm excited. I AM NOT A NUMBER, I AM A FREE MAN!  ;yes

Just posted this for Randy, but you ought to have this pic too!

For you and Randy:


Ringo! ;D

Sorry it's a bad cell phone pic, I was hanging out in Hollywood last Friday but didn't plan on visiting the Beatles' stars ahead of time, otherwise I would've brought a real camera. :(

HEY Octie!!  ;D

I made this video a few days ago and thought you would like to see it!

Ringo Starr "King of Broken Hearts"


It's the song "King Of Broken Hearts" do you like this song of his? I thought it was a really sad song. George plays guitar on it and sings backing vocal. Good tune.  ;)

Hello! :) Sorry about the late reply - I think I haven't been here all week O_O Yay for the weekend :)

Thank so much for the Starr star, Penny! Pretty awesome! 8) It did make me pass out, but I did it with a smile ha2ha no, just kidding. So awesome that you got to see those stars. How's everything going? You all done with midterms?

Randy, thanks a bunch for the gifs, they're so cute! I especially like the first one.... so funny and happy-fying! ha2ha I like that film about their visit to America. "Ringooooo... packing!" :D
And I quite like King of Broken Hearts 8) Love how George's in it, too. I actually remember reading a nice Ringo quote about George's guitar part in this song.... might have been in a book, or in the booklet that came with that Best of Ringo Starr CD... I'll look for it :)
By the way, your video is lovely! :) The picture at 1:51 is too cute ^_^ And I've never seen those family photos, with the kids - very cool! 8)
How's everything going?
