Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey folks, here’s something to be thankful for – I’m making a post!! Seriously though, life has been crazy and I apologize profusely once again for the lack of posts. There will be more posts, however, and also some exciting news on the Carey front that I am not quite at liberty to disclose yet, heh heh. However, I can tell you that The World’s Greatest Sinner is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video!

In the meantime, meditate on what you’re thankful for and let the gratitude wash over you. Have a wonderful day and always remember: “There’s hope, there’s hope, there’s hope!

Happy New Year!

All of us here at The Timothy Carey Experience (me, the hubby, and Cirrus the cat) wish you all the best for 2016! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm for the blog; it means the world to us. Here’s to another fabulous year! Have a wonderful celebration tonight; stay safe and, like Loxie here, party like it’s 1929!

Quote of the Week

I apologize for not posting anything last week. It was a rough week for me – I lost both my cat and my father the previous weekend. I promise to get back on track this week!

The third of the four titular convicts was Timothy Carey, an oddball supporting actor usually cast as a psychopath. Carey’s large frame, sad eyes, and drawling voice made him memorable even when playing bit parts. Shortly after his work on Convicts 4, Carey set out to broaden his horizons by sheer moxie – producing, writing, directing, and starring in The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962). That B-movie epic finds Carey playing a rock-n-roll atheist evangelist who sets out to become a dictator (the film is even weirder than this description makes it sound).

Pic of the Day: “Fast-Walking” publicity still

In this promotional still from James B. Harris‘ prison drama Fast-Walking (1982), Timothy is expressing exactly how I’m feeling! The pathology report from my lumpectomy surgery last week revealed a 1.5cm tumor with negative margins, and the sentinel lymph node biopsy was also negative. No further cancer cells to be seen anywhere! Huzzah!!

Now on to a course of radiation and hormone therapy. This is the best possible news I could get at this point. Come on and celebrate with Tim and I!!

Hey, everybody.

This is where the Quote of the Week usually goes, but instead I’m going to ramble a bit. You’ve probably noticed that I was silent last week. I didn’t plan it that way, but as I was getting ready for the Oregon Burlesque Festival, it just sort of happened. For that I apologize. But, it looks like I may be posting sporadically for a while. The reason is that I now have an unexpected health issue on my plate.

I was recently diagnosed with an invasive carcinoma in my left breast. I’m going in this coming Wednesday for lumpectomy surgery. My surgeon tells me that since the tumor is very small and we caught it early, my prognosis for full recovery is excellent. I’m still a little apprehensive, but I have a good feeling that all is going to turn out well. The overriding emotion I’m feeling is, frankly, annoyance. I’ve got stuff to do, dammit! Well, every now and then you get thrown a curve ball. You just gotta roll with the punches, if I may be allowed to mix my sports metaphors.

I have a good support team, so as I say, I feel confident for a good final outcome. I’ll post when I can. In the meantime, let me offer some sound advice that is applicable in any situation.

Keep calm...
