Rumor has it (Ok Doe said it on her Facebook) that they are getting ready to launch the TO website soon..as in soon, soon.

Only 114 more days until the Bali Hai )

Only 115 more days until I wake up to volunteer with a ridiculous rum induced hangover

Only 116 more days before I am sitting at the bar waiting for my bloody mary breakfast

and

Only 117 more days until I try to remember what the hell happened all weekend!

(thank god we invested in that countdown clock!)

So looking forward to the best part of the Summer and from what I have been hearing I am also looking forward to some Spy-tastic themed room parties!

Cool.

A Shirley Bassey
theme and a Pre-DAF Jill St. John !!

Also in 1965, she's Pre-Batman as well...



And here's a theory of mine. The Spy craze arguably peaked in 1965 with "Thunderball" which was the highest grossing (adjusting for inflation) Bond pic of all time. The "Batman" craze followed just months afterward.

Batman (pop-culturally) trumped Bond !!

And for what it's worth, Adam West was offered the Bond franchise after the Lazenby fiasco but turned it down.

It would be kinda cool to add Batman as an aesthetic to TO #12. He did have pulp/noir origins and was often referred to as the "Dark Knight Detective".

Also unlike James Bond, Batman actually visited a Tiki bar (at least from the outside)



and was a Tiki himself



Ha, ha. Just kidding.

But I do believe Batman did have a devolutionary impact on 1960's Spy pop culture. The TV series garnered such great popularity in 1966, that many other shows followed down that same comic book path. This was acknowledged by the producers of "The Man from UNCLE" where unlike the more serious first season, the third season of TMFU became more of a spoof to compete with the satirical nature of Batman.

And how about the post-Batman "You Only Live Twice" ?? That entry in the Bond franchise was so "comic book" in nature that it inspired the whole "Austin Powers" parody several decades later.

In the 1960's, the impact probably hit its most absurd with the Bond/Batman hybrid "James Batman" (those crazy Filipinos again !!)



Batman killed Bond !! (or at least the arguably cooler early 60's Bond)

OK, I'll shut up now.

EDIT - But not quite yet...

This is going to be my first year. Four of us are flying all the way from Pittsburgh to come out for it. I'm very, very excited to meet some of the people that I've talked to on here, and had the pleasure of interacting with.
