THE ABOVE POST AND TEXT POSTED AT THE FACEBOOK PCASUK FAN PAGE on THURSDAY 15th October!
#WOW! and #THANKYOU! This post, is not a boast... nor a brag. It is a heartfelt reach out to you! I find it amazing in these worrying and very troubled times, where everyone has more than enough on their plate to deal with, you our friends and followers, still have time to slip away escape, and distract yourselves with memories and images, of a different time. It is also a clear sign that the work and films of #PeterCushing, are still as popular as ever, easily accessible now and enjoyed the world over. I think the humble and modest, Cushing would have been very surprised by that! Here, interesting stories about his life off screen, still create interest and a steady flow of questions and enquiries to the page. PCAS is indeed a very friendly and entertaining 'safe house', so you tell me and goodness knows, on the internet now, we need one.
#2021 MARKS our tenth year on# Facebook and 10th #birthday of the PCASUK website/ Blog too! It will also be a year where I will be expanding our range, to present some new features focusing kind of unexplored Peter Cushing work. The #PCASUK archive of video and audio interviews with actors, directors and crew who worked with Peter.. these #interviews have only be shared in edited form, back in the late 1980's/ / early 90's as part of a 'audio tape magazine'... will now form a #live monthly visual #PODCAST. It's 15 years since I have dragged myself in front of a camera or even touched an editing desk.To think I once made a living from this for 35 years, sadly until I crashed, television takes no prisoners! It had all been in storage, but was dusted off last year, kick started and worked a treat! Some new software and learning and I was once again, loving it! I guess it's a bit like riding a bicycle.. you don't forget!
AS USUAL I WILL BE reviewing some interesting new books, dvd's and blu rays of Cushing's work, some from Warner Bros planned for next year, running several features on the release of Donald Fearney's new blu ray documentary for 2021, 'The Man Who Created #Frankenstein', along with reviews on the #Hammerfilms books published by #WayneKinsey, and some jaw-dropping recently uncovered and still not shared Peter Cushing / Hammer television material, long thought erased or lost! There will be the competitions, and I hope a few surprises, along with, my regular typos and lame exclamation and water marks . . but more importantly I hope, there will be YOU and your continued support, comments, shares and interest! PCASUK really is a 'one man band' here. I don't play the game of assistance of Facebook's 'post boosting', I don't need to, YOU make all that happen! This is a #hobby, one that has quite surprisingly expanded ever year. It's a hobby that I do love, made all the more fun, with you all being here too!
CAN I SHARE a HUGE welcome to all who have LIKED and FOLLOWED us in the last few weeks, thank you for joining us. To the never failing regulars, the band, thank you, I would be lost without you, as Peter Cushing would indeed say, 'In all sincerity, may God's blessing be with you always!'.... Please keep safe everyone and look after yourselves, your family, loved ones and friends - Marcus
