Maude: The Complete Series

Posted by & filed under News.

I wanted to wait a few days before posting this to make sure it was legit. It was back in 2007 when Maude Season 1 was released on DVD from Sony Entertainment, which was received very well by Bea’s fans. Since then Maude has appeared on various streaming sites and finally iTunes and Amazon for digital […]

My Bea Arthur and Rue McClanahan clips

Posted by & filed under News.

I ran across some videos from 2005 and 2007 recently of when I took a hand full of clips on my still camera back at that time (spoiled on the quality of phone cameras of today). I combined the small, raw clips, into one video and threw it up on YouTube. Good memories, hopefully they bring some […]

Happy Bea-Day

Wishing all the Bea fans a happy Bea-Day today! Bea would have been 92 today and many of her fans are remembering and reflecting on her performances. Other fans are pulling out their photos and stories of when they were fortunate enough in meeting her, primarily during her one woman show. Either way, a great […]

Based from the off and on defunct Flappy Bird iOS game, Michael Denison from #BeaADay and Brian Kokernak from Headrush team up to unveil today, Busy Bea. It is just as painfully addicting as Flappy Bird has been. You will be throwing your phone in no time, but this time it will be with the […]

Bea Arthur YouTube Playlist

Posted by & filed under News.

Before there was the YouTube era, video clips were provided on this website in Quicktime format. At the time, I would convert my favorite clips from the videos I was buying on VHS from eBay. Most videos were not larger then 320×240 and quality varied. Then YouTube came along and, slowly but surely, people started […]

Flashback in Bea Arthur History – Spring 2004

Posted by & filed under News.

It has been a while! I realized recently that it has been a solid decade since Bea’s one women show was at the height of its existence. Generally I think of it between 2000 and 2004. She continued on longer then 2004, however it was less frequent and staggered in performances. I also believe this […]

A fun read in the Huffington Post today featuring Michael Denison who has been creating daily art work inspired by John Currin’s recent headlining portrait of Bea that was auctioned a few months ago. I have always enjoyed and encouraged fan art of Bea over the years. Bea A Day (www.beaaday.com) is Tumblr blog that hosts […]

Remembering Bea in 2013

Posted by & filed under News.

Happy Mother’s day to all! Tomorrow, the 13th, was Bea’s birthday, so wanted to remember that again in 2013. Rewatching the Golden Girls, Maude and the many other performances, it’s easy to forget she is gone. Bea’s gift of recorded performances gives us an eternity of entertainment which past, present and future fans will always […]
