    11/02/14    IN THE ENQUIRER NOW - Nov. 10 issue
    I happened to go BACK to the grocery store for something and there was the Enquirer on the stand, it was there yesterday but somehow I did not pay attention, this time I did and lo and behold there is a two page spread on Jan and his troubles. It seems that is the only time he makes the news, only when something is wrong. Anyway, as I said I'm just glad to hear that Jan is still around. He still has his hair, he sure has that going for him. He doesn't look much different from the last time we saw him.


    11/01/14    NEW JMV VIDEO
    At last we have some news on Jan, good news and bad news. The good news is that he is still alive and living, well somewhere. I really don't know if he's still in MS or somewhere else nearby. He is still with his wife and the two of them live quietly in a nice little house. He still remembers most things about his life though he's reluctant to talk about it. Weather prehaps he regrets some things like his drinking or he just likes to leave the past in the past no one knows but he lives in a quiet area, sits on his porch and seems content. The bad news is he had some sort of surgery and then a bad infection that took a part of his right leg. He now gets around with a prosthetic leg and a walker.


    Thanks to Alex in Germany who brought this link to my attention. Most of you may have seen it by now but it is new to me and I'm sorry about Jan's leg but he still has his life and that is something amazing.

    08/20/14    What is it about him
    How many times can I say it's hard to keep updating this website when there is usually nothing to update with? You already know the story but here I am once again trying to do just that because incredibly I still get emails that tell me there are fans out there still thinking about Jan. Some fans are very young. I don't even know how they all heard about Jan or why they would even care but they do. Many people still care about Jan, including me. So here is a recent photo I acqured a little while ago of Jan looking very much in his prime. It is an add ironically for beer which I'm posting as is and as a nice portrait of the man. It makes me wonder how many more photos may be out there that we've not yet seen. What is it about him that makes us keep hanging on? Perhaps we'll never know exactly but in the meantime yes, we still do want to see his face. On a personal note I've been very busy this year adopting a nine year old girl from China. My three kids are grown but our family is still very tight and I wanted to share that with one child who needed a family. She has now been home for three weeks. During this time we are suppose to be bonding with her but we got extra bonding time as we were in quarantine. It turns out after we got home we found out one of the children in our adoption group contracted measles and the department of health called asking us to stay put for twenty days to prevent an outbreak but none of us came down with it but we did get the nasty cold, both my husband and I, that everyone else had in China. We are getting better now. The transition days are up and down but with each day comes a little more acceptance.
    02/22/14    Where is Jan
    Just a couple of collages for fun just to remind us of Jan. Don't have much else to share with you at this time as is usually the case. Not much news going around about Jan. I can't imagine he is up to too much other than enjoying his life in MS.
    01/04/14    Happy New Year
    Yes, sir, another year has gone by, much too quickly if you ask me. I hope new year has started off good for you. The end of 2013 was not so good for me, ended up in the ER with pneumonia. Finally, getting better now but the later part of December I spent in bed. I had no idea how pneumonia can knock you right off your feet. I hope it doesn't come back any time soon. In the meantime Alex in Germany has sent us an article from a German magazine from 2010 that mentions Jan having a grandchild. Some of you can read this and some of us will just browse through it but nevertheless it's nice to see. Go to Gallery 14 to see a couple more pix.
    12/07/13    Newly added pic
    Just got this in and had to post, will be adding it to a new gallery soon. Maybe time to start a new one. Better get going while the going is good. Honestly, not sure if we already have this one or not but just in case. It was taken at time when I'm sure it was a very carefree time for Jan back in the seventies or even earlier when he was just getting started.
    12/05/13    Just some things
    Just checked out some more links on the Net, one in French but a longer biography page. Some photos are off my website but still worth a look at NANARLAND
    A pretty little Jan gallery appears at TUMBLER

    11/29/13    Anybody Out There
    There is really no way to tell when the inspiration might come over me to update this website. It is sporadic that is for sure. Every now and then Jan still comes to my mind and I wonder how he is doing. I hope he is still around and is doing as well as can be. I've not seen any of his films on TV lately but that is not to say that Airwolf or some movie is not playing somewhere in the world. My world is doing all right. My grandson is growing like a weed and is such a cute little boy. I spend a lot of time with him and enjoy it very much. Has anyone heard if Amber ever had a child? I've not seen anything about her. I hope she is well too. I can't really give you any updates on Jan because there aren't any that I know of and really just to know that he's still out there somewhere is enough for me. I did just pay again for another year of this webspace so we shall see what happens.

    To start off with I just noticed this little movie, really someone's home movie of Jan after filming Big Wednesday. The film is called CACTUS WAGON. You've probably already seen it, if not you can see it at Surfer's Journal by clicking on any of the scans below. It is a cool story of Jan and Denny Aaberg, the screenwriter of Big Wednesday driving along what was undoubtedly fantastic scenery down to Rattlesnake Point and Punta Pequena, Mexico. It is amazing to see that someone still has some Jan footage we've not seen yet. I love the retro and casual feel of this little film narrated by Denny himself. Jan is young, natural and beautiful.




    And here is how this wonderful cover of the magazine IN THE KNOW came to be back in the mid 70s as told by then editor James Spada. I wish the article was a little longer with more detail but nice to see just the same. Spada says, "I interviewed him in his rustic Topanga Canyon garden. He and his wife and little girl were a delight..."

    03/10/13    Buster & Billie
    Just worked on all 4 pages of Buster & Billie, one of major JMV films which should be visible and now all 4 pages have correct links. Looking over all the material on this film reminds me how good it was and how popular. I think if they re-did this film today it would be just as good because the story is tragic and very touching. Jan is great as the popular bad boy with traces of good in him which the love of Billie strengthens. In this film Jan is so young, talented and beautiful and no one can take that away from him.

    01/13/13    Getting on with the New Year
    Happy New Year everynone. I do look forward to hopefully going over some of the old pages and update them. I wish very badly that I had some new material to post but I will go over my scrapbooks to double check and triple check if there is anything I've missed. In the meantime if there is anyone out there with something we've not seen yet from Jan's career please speak up or send in whatever scans you care to share with the rest of us. I can see from the FB page that there are definitely some Jan fans still kicking out there. Thank goodness for that.
    11/30/12    Defiance Facebook Page
    Hello, again, I bet you are sitting there with your mouth hanging open at seeing an update on this page. I've been thinking for a while now to come back here but somehow I've not had the courage however I noticed that in the last few months or so fans have been active again, writing, inquiring about Jan. It certainly appears that there are fans still out there thinking about Jan regardless of his circumstances; the hard core fans who are loyal to a fault. So in light of that I've decided to start slow. I've started a Defiance Facebook group and if you'd like to be a part of it search Jan Michael Vincent Defiance and hopefully it will come up. That way we can keep more in touch with each other and then I will work on the website itself and maybe get some help with you. Did you notice a couple of film trailers with Jan in it? Here are the links though you may have seen them long before I did:
  • Airwolf South Africa
  • Hollywood Don't Surf
  • 05/24/11   Real Life
    Hi, everyone and anyone who still happens to come by. I am busy at the moment with my first grandchild. My daughter, same one as last year, deliverd a healthy baby boy named Brandon on May 11th. He was still early but only five weeks and is doing well but needs to put some weight on those little bones. He's just tipped the scale over 5 pounds, so as soon as his eating habit becomes consistant he will be able to leave the NICU. Really looking forward to Brandon's homecoming. Cheers.
    03/17/11   Happy St. Patrick's day
    Any Irish fans out there? I hope you had a good day, though it's not over yet. The party is probably just beginning. Thanks to all those who wrote with some thoughts about Jan and the website. We'll keep the faith as you say. I guess I just had to vent a little. Sometimes I feel like the only fan out there and other times I know I'm not alone. Jan has many fans who just will not give up on him. He's lucky that way. It would be nice to hear what Jan is doing these days but we'll keep on guessing. Stay well, all you good people.
    03/02/11   So, what's going on ?
    Well, the other night Jan came into my dreams again, I saw him from behind though I recognized him immediately by his beautiful blond hair. He was standing alone, gazing into the distance of a lovely mountain. I really can't say what words were spoken if any but I woke up that morning with a refreshed and hopeful feeling that not all was lost yet. I still care about Jan and enjoy his career. I'll still watch his movies and look for his picture where-ever I can. I will add to this website and keep it up as long as I can no matter what they say. I promise.
