With Jurassic World still in theaters…

Monster-of-the-Week: …this week the nod goes to this genetically-engineered velociraptor which adorns my current can of Barbasol:

This is a clever bit of product tie-in; you’ll remember it was a fake Barbasol can in which Wayne Knight tried to smuggle out the dinosaur embryos in the original film.

RIP to a couple of greats: My Mom’s favorite actor Theodore Bikel, passed on at 91, and Alex Rocco, passed on at 79. Of Rocco’s many fine turns, I especially loved him as the sheriff in The Stunt Man; it’s excellent (and rather accurate) when, near the end, Peter O’Toole off-handedly greets him with “Hello, sexy.”
