I thought I imagined this!

EL, this is for you.

The bravest thing they did was to choose powder blue suits over brown..

Amazing. It's like C'Etait un Rendezvous, only except "in a Ferrari in Paris", it's "skateboards in Claremont."

It's Friday! Put your weight on it!

Oh. I want.

"While on an international business trip, you are kidnapped and held for ransom. A terrorist attack closes the business district and you find yourself in a fix. How do you stay alive? How do you get to safety on your own? This class provides leading-edge skills to civilians who live and work in challenging urban environments or in urban centers that may destabilize during a crisis. Topics covered include covert movement (day vs. night), the judicious use of caches, understanding urban baseline movement and urban awareness training, the use of urban disguises and false papers/identification, lock picking, escaping from unlawful custody, obtaining and driving local transportation, the use of "specialized" urban gear, and instruction on how to develop urban escape and evasion go-bags, etc. A one day urban escape scenario is held the final day of class."

Lindsay Vivian: "Spirit Photographer."





Okay, so Robby actually took the picture. And it was his idea... But I was there, and I sent it in to "Coast to Coast AM!" I may be giving away a little too much, but it is my favorite radio program. (I'm so proud)! And here's the series...

"Excuse me do you have the time?" - "Why, yes, It's a quarter to 'Oh Shit!!!'"


The swiss and their watches... The Borgeaud watch company has teamed up with Indian fortune tellers to give us a product that they claim, can predict catastrophies and such. Read all about it.

Warner Brothers offering new service for ordering previously unavailable films from its archive.


They expect 300 titles to be availabele by the end of the year, with about 20 titles becoming available a month. Does this mean we'll never get the special feature goodies for Freebie and the Bean? I have mixed feelings about this. Explore The Warner Archive, via Technicolor Dreams.

Missing Vincent Price.

"Captain Pugwash"-- kind of like the grandfather of adult cartoons.

A generation of Brits, now all grown up, are realizing they've been had. Someone was having a great time sneaking tons of sexual innuendo into the popular 70's children's show. Yes, Randall and Martin, I see what you mean.

Paul Outerbridge in California and Mexico 1948-1955


"Outerbridge was one of the few masters of the tri-carbro-color process, a technique used to produce highly saturated color prints. The process was laborious and each print could take up to 9 1/2 hours to create because the photographer had to develop and meticulously align three separate exposures of the same image." Follow this link to a gallery of images from his underappreciated era.

I am "able, available, and looking for work."


So much so, that this blog will be inactive for about a week. Please rummage through some of my older pages, they're dated, but in a good way! Thanks for peeking in.

Oh, and it's Friday the 13th again...

Here's a taste of proper "camp" horror for you. By the way, The New Beverly is screening The Excorcist III, and William Peter Blatty's, The Ninth Configuration tonight.

A nice pre-fab home from Italy.


Just fantasizing. Browse some of their other links, including what I like to call "children of the pod-people," and the "re-fab" trailer-- especially heartening for those of us thinking about giving up city life for a humble piece of sand rock under a tree in the desert. Via Freshome.

"Doctor, when I get behind the wheel, I get an insane urge to kill."

"Made for TV" Heaven!


One could spend hours reading the descriptions to some of these titles, such as "Assignment Munich (1972) - Roy Scheider and Robert Reed mystery craziness."
I just kind of had to pick one at random for you, because, really, how can one choose? And some of you, you know who you are, might like to know that they carry "Freebie and the Bean." All of the titles are up for the taking. Quality of said titles may be questionable.

Some FYI if you're into horror movies...


“The Top Ten Greatest Horror Movies You Don’t Know About, But Should,” according to Racer Django. I agree, "The Innocents," was pretty scary.

Don't make me explain why I like this, okay, I just do.

Things that fit together: "Daft Punk," and "Tron 2."

The band has agreed to score the film which is slated for a 2011 release. Cool.

"Magnum Force" as you couldn't possibly see it.


Yet, news from the Guardian tells us an all-singing, all-dancing musical production of it is in the works.

Zero gravity art exhibition.


"I can't believe that my artwork flew in orbit and that my drawing of a girl and a rocket actually flew to space on a rocket.” If you can't orbit the Earth, at least your art can. Congratulations, Josh!

A mesmerizing slice of funky pie.


Kutiman mixes youtube, and "what you see, is what you hear." Follow this link to Thru You for more gold.

Habitable.


A slamming "luxury house," from the Paris firm, Jouin Manku. "...Nine bedrooms, two dens, a family kitchen and a private dining area, a private library, a game room, a study, a foyer, a formal dining room, a ballroom, a chapel, 21 bathrooms, a swimming pool, indoor parking, two guest suites and guest parking."

... I've been drinking. And now I'm going to drink some more..."


The title of the book says it all. Here's a link to the game in which you try to keep up with Oliver Reeds' bartending-- underwhelming in reflection of what it must have really been like at a barstool in the presence of these Englishmen. The full scoop is at Cinema Retro. For MD, sadly you're not gonna get much closer than this.
