Rip Tony Curtis
Curtis, whose real name was Bernard Schwartz, is most fondly remembered for his ace role in Billy Wilder’s ‘Some Like It Hot’ with co-stars Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon.

Of course, there was much more to Curtis’ career and he starred in countless films and was always great value when appearing on talk-shows to regale us all with glorious anecdotes and wisecracks.
Curtis’ breakthrough performance came with his role of the scheming swine, Sidney Falco, in Sweet Smell of Success before getting an Oscar-nomination for his turn as an escaped convict chained to Sidney Poitier in The Defiant Ones.

Curtis was one of those rare  ... continue reading

Antwerp Vintage Reunion part 2 2010.
For the second time in a row the VCCB organized the Antwerp Vintage Reunion at Fort 2 in Wommelgem and it has grown a lot since last year. The fortress was built in 1859 and completed in 1864. And was part of the Brialmontbelt around Antwerp of a defense for the city against foreign forces. Unfortunately by 1880, with the invention of better artillery the fortresses became useless. That concludes our little history lesson of today.
So luckily the fort has been around since then, cause it’s an excellent place to organizes festivals like this. Big parking spaces, already built stage ( loading platform). No neighbors in the direct vicinity.

Pancreatic cancer doesn't scare Charlie Louvin
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Charlie Louvin can remember a time when a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer — or any cancer, really — was a sure death sentence.

The 83-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer said his recent diagnosis was upsetting at first, but he has hopes modern medicine will help him beat cancer — or at least push it off for a while.

"They can do wonders," Louvin said this week. "And what I need sorely is a miracle, and I believe they're still around. There's miracles that happen in this country every day and I'm wide open for one."

Louvin seems as vital as ever. He has two albums set for release over the next few  ... continue reading
