I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything on my blog and my last post explains why. However, after almost a week of the flu (including a 101 degree temperature at one point) I’m finally mostly better. This morning I woke up and watched a documentary about Planet of the Apes, which was very interesting. Being the media addicted nerd I am I started looking up the various actors and actresses from the Apes films and found this interview with Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes series, That Darn Cat, Cleopatra). It comes from the magazine Scarlet Street and appeared in a 1998 issue.

**I feel it’s in the best interest of full disclosure that I admit I have a radio crush on Fresh Air’s Terry Gross.**
I was a Kiss fan for about six week and it was probably because I was going to see them live on their second or third reunion tour (featuring all four original members, especially the horribly drugged out Ace Frehley). I got it out of my system pretty quickly after seeing them live – like going to a circus which is only fun for a few moments. Since then, I think Kiss is pretty stupid. Their songs have no depth; they sing about partying (which is funny because Gene Simmons doesn’t drink or do drugs), screwing over women, being screwed over by women, sex, and cold gin (which is funny, once again, because Simmons abstains from intoxicating substances).
