    Maybe there should be a Vasquez Rocks appearances thread, they show up enough in this one.

    This might help you figure out if you are affected.

    At the very least, maybe Vasquez Rocks should be treated as a "guest star."

    As 50th anniversary business, I'm watching the 1970 documentary Gimme Shelter, which features multiple scenes of Melvin Belli in his day job as a lawyer--the year after he did "And the Children Shall Lead"--working the phone to arrange the infamous December 1969 Altamont Free Concert for the Rolling Stones.

    You should post pictures, so we know who you're talking about. I remember the names, but not the roles they played on ST.

    He played D'amato, who was killed by 2D computer-generated Losira in "That Which Survives".

    Ah. Thank you. Such explanations also work.

    I have no idea how to post pictures, and if you are such a fan of the show you'll know already whom I am talking about! :techman:

    Now wouldn't that beat all if it turns out the Vasquez Rocks are, in reality, the fossilized remains of an ancient spaceship which crashed into Earth eons ago?

    Wouldn't the spaceship have to be made out of bone, then? That's icky.

    I use it as an opportunity to do a little research; I learn more doing a quick lookup on the web and usually learn a little more than just the character's identity such as their age, if they are dead, what else they starred in, etc. Happy New Year to my good, down under, mate! :beer:

    Posting pictures is easy -- just click the Image button, and follow the simple instructions.

    The rest ("If you're a Real Fan, you'll already know what I mean, so I feel no obligation to explain myself") is just gatekeeping. Please help other fans by filling in the blank, instead of being a gatekeeper. :)

    Hmm...organic spaceships... Maybe that's why its distress signal is a telepathic mandate to humans to film it from as many angles as possible in order to precisely locate it?

    I don't post pictures where I don't have the means to take screencaps for one reason or another. Or where I don't feel it's worth the bother.

    For some reason I thought you were in Australia. My bad, buddy.

    What is an image button? :crazy: Plus I don't feel the need to add a photo (even if I could) unless I'm trying to explain something very particular! :techman:

    You'd also need to have some personal web location to post the picture, since you're not allowed to hotlink from someone else's website. That's why I upload screen grabs to my GoDaddy temp folder and link from there.
