THE TAVERN'S ANNUAL BIRTHDAY GREETING TO MS. MASTERSON

TUESDAY--JUNE 18, 2019

This year's birthday celebration for MSM will mean a lot of links for her to click since it is a mini-concert of Elton John's music. Elton John has been writing and recording popular hit songs since just after MSM was born. With Sir Elton now on his last concert tour in his long and distinguished career, and the release of the biographical film Rocketman, a playing list of some of Elton John's songs was appropriate. Ms. Masterson's love of music, and the fact the Elton John's songs have been playing in the background of nearly her entire life, made this year's choice an easy one. Elton John is responsible for producing a good portion of the soundtrack of Mary Stuart Masterson's life. Happy Birthday to MSM from all the visitors to the Tavern.

Here we go:

STEVE STARK PINPOINTS STARTING MONTH FOR MSM'S FOR LIFE ABC TELEVISION DRAMA

MONDAY--MAY 27, 2019

As Steve related in a recent entry in his Mary Stuart Masterson Facebook group: " The TV series featuring MSM has been ordered by ABC! The show is a Mid Season Series. Probably starting in January 2020." My guess is For Life will be broadcast on Monday nights, either 9:00 PM or 10:00 PM, after the end of ABC Monday Night Football for the 2019-2020 season. Looks like a new "Episode Guide" page for The Tavern.

STEVE STARK INSPIRES SEARCH FOR STREAMING CHANNELS FOR MSM INDEPENDENT FILMS

WEDNESDAY--MAY 8, 2019

Steve sent word that he found a streaming service that shows the MSM independent film As You Are. I checked by entering the title on GOOGLE and there are a lot of streaming services that offer to show the film, some for far less than buying the DVD and about in-line with renting a DVD. Below is a list of links to different streaming servics showing As You Are. The lowest rental is $2.99 at VUDU and iTunes is highest with $4.99. The rest all charge $3.99, which appears to be the present market price for a streaming rental for most films.
