I was really hoping something would come of this. I wonder what ever happened to countdrac. Hope he's alright.

Were you guys able to download and save those excellent CDF movies skorch did a few years ago? They're probably going to be the closest thing to the real article we'll ever see.

Same here. skorch's recreations were one of the biggest CDF highlights of the past decade (along with Ernie Boch Jr.'s updated version of CDF, this board and the old one, AJ's CDF website and Creature Double Feature Round-Ups)!

 Re: VHS tapes from CDF found in my closet
Just read this post for the first time. Bummer that Countdrac never rematerialized.

Is Mark still out there, and does he have a library of CDF DVDs that can be copied and purchased? I would love to see what he has.

Also, Col. Manning, you mention that Ernie Boch Jr. had an updated version of CDF????? I never heard of that, so can you elaborate on what it is? Is it online, or where can it be found? Funny thing....I took guitar lessons from EB Jr. around 1979-80 or so. He was such a laid back, hippie-lookin dude then, and he told me he had no interest in the car gig his dad had. How times change!

Lastly, I wholeheartedly agree about the commercials in old VHS copies. They are definitely a time machine. Does anyone remember the wacked-out 'Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs bird' and the old bird in the Cocoa Puffs cereal commercials? That bird was definitely on the cocoa!

Ernie is still a laid back hippie-looking dude. I think he's in a band too. Sometimes he appears between periods of Bruins' games on NESN. I'm really not sure why he does, since I don't pay much attention to the between period stuff.

I live!

I have DVDs of (I think) all of the new CDFs that Ernie Boch did. They're similar to the old CDF in musical theme and type of film only, as these were hosted by Boch as a horror-host character with a head-in-a-box sidekick. They started off with some PD monster films, then eventually ran SPECIES (and maybe another) the last time they did it. I think there were 3 rounds of the new CDF, if I recall.

PM me if you'd like copies of them.

Yes, Ernie's band is 'Ernie and the Automatics'. I believe it's his drummer, Syb Habian?, who was in the band Boston, if you remember them. Tom Sholz, etc.

I have run into Ernie a few times, and yes he is still a laid-back dude. When I first met him in '79 or '80, he looked more like one of the Doobie Brothers or the guitarist from the Muppet Show band, lol.

By the way, his sister's house in Wrentham is friggin HUGE!!!!
