Cooking with Vincent Price! Delicious mushrooms & stuffed eggs! Roast pork sirloin with prunes, onions & red wine! Small boys in a spectacular curry! Cooking not your thing? Well, would you prefer learning about cricket? Or perhaps Florentine art? Voilà, my friends!

Things I learned from A&E's Biography: Vincent Price was once the spokesperson for Sears and their attempt at selling fine art.

My favorite episode of Yacht Rock features Vincent Price helping Toto and Michael MacDonald "spook the smooth" back into Michael Jackson (who has fallen under the malign influence of Eddie Van Halen).

I don't even recognize the preceding sentence as English.

. . . but for my guests, I only want to serve small boys. I like to look around for some really exotic and very hot ones.

Yeeeah, I'll bet you do.

. . . That's the way my wife likes them.

Wait, Vincent Price is straight???

His wife wasn't named 'Florence' or 'Constance' by any chance was she?

If you guys are missing it, I highly recommend his recipe for small boys in a piquant curry. Delectible! They do whimper a little when you stab them with the fork tho...

As a board, sir. (Though sawdust would probably make for a more apt comparison at this point. It has been fourteen years, after all.)

He had a wide named Coral.

Great post, by the way.

I swear, I could listen for hours to that man reading recipes, poems, the phone book -- whatever. Egad, what a voice!

Hee!

From Wikipedia: "Price was married three times and fathered a son, named Vincent Barrett Price, with his first wife, former actress Edith Barrett. Price and his second wife Mary Grant donated hundreds of works of art and a large amount of money to East Los Angeles College in the early 1960s in order to endow the Vincent and Mary Price Gallery there. Their daughter, Victoria, was born in 1962. Price's last marriage was to the Australian actress Coral Browne, who appeared with him (as one of his victims) in Theatre Of Blood (1973). He converted to Catholicism to marry her, and she became a US citizen for him. According to his daughter, Price became disillusioned with the faith after her 1991 death. He died two years later."

Wait, Faint of Butt quoted it, but is there an actual a link to I Rub My Roast up in here? I see the original recipe file, but not this.

Vincent why couldn't you hang on another couple of decades! Our children need you! Who is gonna scare the crap out them with the same panache and class? Marilyn Manson? C'mon.

And see what happened to the world. Price was the lynch pin holding our reality together. When Christopher Lee goes... kiss your ass good bye.

Best night o' my life: Partying with Vincent Price after his one-man show of Oscar Wilde. The Fates aligned that night. Exhausted after the (superb) show, he plopped down at my table at an art gallery reception. He was tired of being shuttled around by his Omaha handlers and (too polite to tell'em to buzz off) sought refuge by engaging me and three of my friends in deep conversation every time they drew near. Charming, elegant, fascinating ... and I fell in love with him all over again a few years later when I first heard the OTR versions of "The Saint".

Oh, and that story about Peter Lorre at Lugosi's funeral was evidently true.

RavinDave.

You are now my sworn enemy. My envy knows no bounds.

In order to avoid my wrath I want that potentially excellent story re-told every three or four months for the next five years.

Each time I want you to add something like:

"...and then on the ride back to his hotel we hit a squirrel and Price made us pull over and read it last rites. We stood there while it snowed as Price quoted the Yorick Soliloquy from Macbeth cradling the still warm rodent in his cape. I wept like a little girl."

You got that. I SAID YOU GOT THAT!

It's either that or I may steal this story myself. It will go:

"I knew this guy once, Dave, who met Vincent Price... wait for the part about the cocaine and the squirrel..."

And don't forget the part where my sworn enemy John Fogerty shows up and Vincent Price slaps the living shit out of him... boooya!

Less than 45 days till Fogerty's birthday, Lynnster. Be prepared.

Why did John Fogerty cross the road?

Because Miss Lynnster told him the other side was reserved for VIPs!
