Fortuitously, being at the bottom of Groom Lake in Area 51 has given us a short, but welcome break from Operation BlueBalls, which is currently taking us on our biggest mission yet . . . Ireland.
Doctor Sternum met up with Troy Tempest yesterday, who gave us a brief taste of the exciting things that go on in his world.
I asked Troy Tempest if he would mind stopping in for an interview. He is here now, helping me formulate this post.
He just mentioned he has an Aquaphibian to speak to, as do I . . . . OK, done.
He has to go out to smooth some waves now, but will be back later on to speak with us.
Here is a brief synopsis of Troy Tempest’s main gig: Stingray.
James Garner and Jim Rockford‘s characters were modelled on Troy Tempest. A cowboy named Bret Maverick bore a strong resemblence to James Garner, often confusing wikipedia authors . . . they attribute his escapades to Troy Tempest! This has been an endless political nightmare for Troy Tempest, as he gets no royalties from Maverick re-runs and is basically tired of suing Warner Brothers, Universal, and also ITV for his acting work. So confusing . . . should he now sue ABC for acting work he supposedly did?
He now feels copyright is confusing, unmanageable, and a bad joke . . . He thinks paid personal appearances and one-off paid Multi-Media video events should float artists’ boats for a more even-keeled approach to entertainment. The old re-runs should be free to view as advertising for the appearances.
The swashbuckling style of Troy Tempest is renowned throughout the world and is now feared by the underwater self proclaimed small “k” king Titan himself. Titan’s Aquaphibians, although still programmed to constantly try to attack and kill Troy and Phones in their ship Stingray, are now a little more scaleable when it comes to communication . . . some Aquaphibians want to talk about peace now. They are getting smarter.
So that is what Troy Tempest now does most of the time . . . talks peace . . . no strings attached.
Until Troy Tempest returns, here is an episode where Troy does his low viscosity fall into DreamLand. Enjoy!
