42 Minutes of October 18, 2011?

42 Minutes Podcast: 10.18.11 Episode 1
18 October 2011 was a Tuesday and was in week 42 of 2011.
I've been going through the '42 Minutes' podcast archives and went back 3978720 minutes this afternoon Australian time to October 18th, 2011 to have a listen to the first 42 Minutes episode to hear if there was something I could learn in hindsight from my vantage point of 2019.
2012: Celebrity Ghost Stories as Herself (final TV role)
Erin Moran turned 51 on October 18th, 2011 and on 4/22/17 Erin passed away.
Room 217 became Room 237 in the Kubrick movie
Erin's first movie acting credit at IMDB
"On April 19, 2011, Moran, three of her Happy Days co-stars—
Don Most, Anson Williams, and Marion Ross—and the estate of
Tom Bosley, who died in 2010 on October 19th, filed a $10 million breach-of-contract lawsuit against CBS, which owns the show.
The suit claimed that cast members had not been paid merchandising revenues owed under their contracts.
Revenues included those from show-related items such as comic books, T-shirts, scrapbooks, trading cards, games, lunch boxes, dolls, toy cars, magnets, greeting cards, and DVDs with cast members' likenesses on the box covers.
Their contracts entitled the actors to be paid five percent of the net proceeds of merchandising in the event that a single actor's likeness was used, and half that amount in the event that the cast members were pictured in a group.
CBS said it owed the actors between $8,500 and $9,000 each, most of it from slot machine revenues, but the group said they were owed millions.
The lawsuit was initiated after Ross was informed by a friend playing slots at a casino of a Happy Days machine on which players won the jackpot when five Marion Rosses were rolled.
In October 2011, a judge rejected the group's claim of fraud, thereby eliminating the possibility of recouping millions of dollars in damages.
On June 5, 2012, a judge denied a motion to dismiss filed by CBS, which meant the case would go to trial on July 17 if not settled by then.
In July 2012, the actors settled their lawsuit with CBS; each received a payment of $65,000 and a promise from CBS to continue honoring the terms of their contracts."
42 Minutes podcast: 11.01.11 Episode 3
"Two of her brothers are actors: John Moran and Tony Moran, the latter of whom played Michael Myers during a scene in Halloween (1978)."
Doug mentions in that first '42 Minutes' podcast that Doug Adams was able to show in one of his novels how everything could be traced back to one piece of sponge cake.
Which I thought was amusing as I came across a scene of Erin in the TV show 'Happy Days' where she takes up smoking to get in with the "in" girls of her high school and when the girls ask what their varsity could do Erin's character suggests jumping out of a cake:-)
On October 18th, 1851 Moby-Dick is first published as 'The Whale'.
I'm pretty sure 'Moby Dick' is a book Doug has talked a lot about on '42 Minutes' over the years since.
Nothing much else happened on October 18th that I can find.
Although in 1016 on October 18th, Cnut the Great completes his conquest of England in the Battle of Assandun.
Maybe that's why in England that the words "you're a great cnut" is such an insult.
Hang on, I think I'm thinking of a totally different insult spelled slightly different to that line;-)
I liked how the guys talked about 'Back to the Future', as that would be something big in the future of the Sync Book sync-heads future.
It was good going back in time to listen to that first '42 Minutes' episode and I hope there are many more to come in the future.
