Death Car.

Moving photography of the scene of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow's death scene.

The bullet holes through the car doors are something else!

I was wandering around Wal-Mart (Yeah, I know..) and in my quick glance through the book aisle, one of my first stops anywhere, what to my wandering eyes did appear?

but this:

Home: A Memoir of my Early Years by Julie Andrews.

I swear to God, I nearly hyperventilated with the sudden rush of sheer delight that I so abruptly experienced. And then, it dawned on me.... Where in bloody Iamgoingtoshowmyboobies-Areyouheretoseemyboobies?HELL have I been because apparently, it was released LAST YEAR. I'm not with it. I am no longer 'hip', 'happening' or what do you kids call it these Or, is that SO 1998?

MUST READ. As in, yesterday.

Yodel, Odel, Odelllllllllllllll...

I really enjoy some high quality yodeling, most often in the vein of one Dame Julie Andrews a la The Lonely Goatherd but, this little gem comes straight from Deutschland (or somewhere near there)showcasing a lovely little lady by the name of Maria Hellwig. Its really cute, enjoy! I did.

PS-Sorry I've been rather slack on the posts around here but, I'm dealing with computer malfunctions and then I'll be going on a three day weekend sans internet access but, I'm still reading your blogs and such as often as possible. :)

Images & Intelligence.

Getting older is no problem. You just have to live long enough- Groucho Marx -

If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman - Margaret Thatcher -

And were an epitaph to be my story I'd have a short one ready for my own. I would have written of me on my stone: I had a lover's quarrel with the world. - Robert Frost -

I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn't shut up! - Ingrid Bergman -

Every positive value has its price in negative terms... the genius of Einstein leads to Hiroshima. - Pablo Picasso -

Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms - Alfred Hitchcock -

If God has allowed me to earn so much money, it is because He knows I give it all away. - Édith Piaf -

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world - Anne Frank

I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom. - General George Patton

If all of us acted in unison as I act individually there would be no wars and no poverty. I have made myself personally responsible for the fate of every human being who has come my way. - Anais Nin -

I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? - John Lennon

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing slowly... very slowly. - Gypsy Rose Lee

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction - Albert Einstein -

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall. - Eleanor Roosevelt

We had an apartment on west side of Central Park. The rent was very reasonable. We found out later that it belonged to a gangster called Legs Diamond and it was a front to his headquarters. It was fine. - James Stewart -

Richard Burton rang me up once and said, Do you know you're my only leading lady I've never slept with? I said, Well, please don't tell everybody, it's the worst image. - Julie Andrews -

I Love Lucy- The Not-So-Overplayed Best;1.

As everyone who has visited here even only a time or two know, Lucille Ball is my FAVORITE actress & comedienne.

I've decided to periodically post my favorite Lucy moments however, I'll be highlighting the ones that are almost always overlooked. That means, if you're expecting Lucy's infamous foray into candy making or that strategically placed wick-in-putty nose, you are looking in the wrong place but, I promise they'll make you smile.


Most likely.


I'm kicking it off with Season 6 episode; Ragtime Band, and the scene is the gang's rendition of Man Smart, Woman Smarter.

PS- Has anyone else noticed how every time Keith Thibedeaux (Little Ricky) plays the drums, he sticks his little tounge out? How adorable is that, right?

A Piano; Flaming, Falling.

Jeff Desom , a German filmmaker, has collaborated with experimental pianist, Hauschka to create this short music video which showcases the lovely talent that Jeff posesses when it comes to his craft and the wonderful musical pieces created by Hauschuka.

Done using vintage postcards of NYC found in Paris flea markets and photographs provided by the Library of Congress:

Hauschka - Morgenrot from Jeff Desom on Vimeo.

Isn't it such a hypnotic, beautifully flowing work of art?

Bratislava Hot Serenaders

These are The Bratislava Hot Serenaders . As what one would consider a modern Jazz Band, they aim to recreate 20s and 30s popular music verbatim with no modern day rearrangements in the music and the same can be said for their vocalists.

You will find different video clips of these superb performers on their site (linked above) but, here are my two favorites, thus far:

Broken Record (A novelty song.):

and Livin' in the Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight:

And now, a question(s).
What is your favorite decade for music and who are a few of your favorite artists from that decade?

Thanks for the heads up, Elizabeth !

Grace in Small Things; 20 of 365.

1.) I was fortunate enough to see the revival of South Pacific last saturday and it was AMAZING.
2.) I lost a library book on that trip but, I went to buy books today & came across the same novel that I misplaced for .49 so, hopefully I won't have to pay a penalty because, I've replaced it!
3.) I took Whitey, my dog, for a walk today and he listened extremely well once the initial excitement wore off.
4.) I'm drinking anywhere from 20-80 ounces of water a day now and I think its helping me lose weight.
5.) Blackberries on sale 10 packs for $10.00? SWEET.

Join Grace in Small Things !

Marie Hochhaus; Photographer.

The photography of Marie Hochhaus is very lovely and, she has a lot of work to sift through in her portfolio.

I'm not able to post my favorites here but I'm particularly drawn to set number three and set six

Aren't they whimsical?

Inside Grey Gardens.

From the Master bedroom, used by Big Edie.

A view of the main staircase from the second floor.

The great thing is, the couple who bought Grey Gardens from little Edie after the death of her mother, have had it restored to its original grandeur and apparently use the home as a summer place today!

The rest of the photo essay can be viewed here.

PS- I'll be getting my NYC film developed tomorrow. The bad news? I was prevented from taking photographs inside of the theatre but, I may have captured a few nice shots from Central Park and around the city.
