Welcome to the Forum, Al!!

Sounds like a fellow Vincent Price fan ... very cool!  You should also try "Bloodbath" by Escape.  It's one of my faves with Price.  I remember the one you're talking about with the cat (Cat's Cradle).  Creepy episode!

Hey Janece :)

Love to meet new Vincent Price fans! Thanks for posting a link to Relic Radio's post of "Bloodbath" by Escape. Listening to it right now. Love that priceless Price voice.
Got to believe I've heard it before, since I've been an avid consumer of "The Horror" podcasts for almost 4 years now.

PS -- There was no "The Horror" episode posted for this past Wednesday... I hope one gets posted tonight.

I was introduced to Vincent Price as many people my age were....the voice-over for Michael Jackson's Thriller video.  As I got older, I made sure to remember his name and sought out his works.  Glad I did.  I'm a big fan of his voice and his stories.  He was always my kind of horror guy - throwing in enough dark humor to keep everything interesting.
Political junkie, history nerd, OTR fan and my personal fave....Olivia's Mom!

Learn from history; don't repeat it. Love one another & listen with your heart.

Lol! Mac thats kinda like asking you if you have ties with the mafia cuz you're Italian.
Of course I have friends in the Mafia, but they're all buddhists  because they're into martial arts.

Wow Mac, I'm sorry I missed that one. I recently Googled Bob Ross and I didnt know he died back in 95. Um...Me and my daughter used to watch him in the early 90's on PBS.

I dont know why the video makes you sad but it does leave a frog in my throat for reasons of my own.

Thnx Mac..god bless you my agnostic friend.  :D

I used to watch Bob Ross also, he used to help me go to sleep sometimes.  But PBS is where I first got hooked into some cooking shows.  My favorite back then was Yang can cook.  I thought he was Jackie Chan.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.  Bruce Lee

I watch PBS's Create channel all the time, and I have a place in my heart for Julia Child and America's Test Kitchen. Anyway, a bit off topic perhaps? My first exposure to Vincent Price was not the Thriller video but an episode of Batman. That was my first exposure to Burgess Meredith as well, not Rocky or the Twilight Zone.

I don't know if you read all the comments under the video - if you do, you'll see a lot of people have reasons to cry over his leaving us  :(

I thought Louis Armstrong was the guy who went to the moon - "Wow, he went to the moon, and listen to him playing the trumpet... amazing!!"
I also thought Sylvester Stallone and Sylvester  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG2ixYJ79iE  were the same person...  "How odd, he's this big guy full of muscle, but listen to his voice..."

We believe strange things, sometimes...  :-/

Destruction is nigh, repent, Meow!!  Give away all of your money (I'll let you have my account number with a private message)!!!  Repent!!  My paypal account is fine as well, if you prefer that.  Repent!!

By the way, the first time I heard Price's voice was in Thriller.   I knew him very well as a horror actor (the fly was an absolute cult movie for me when I was a child), but since here in Italy all movies are dubbed, I had never heard his voice before Thriller...

Supposedly Julia Child was a spy along with Chuck Barras  from the gong show.
