Drool @ Mr Bricklabel's Photostream

I am desperately un-in-love with Flickr, but one can't argue with success as in the case of the exquisite collection of fireworks labels at Mr Bricklabel's photostream I lust after this type of imagery, and he delivers in spades. Go there, but put away your matches.

The Great Gabbo

Erich Von Stroheim, Stroheimin' out. World's angriest Eastern European. But the reason to watch it is, this dummy FREAKED ME OUT. Watch it below or download it here (on the left) The only psychology is Gabbo's tranferrence to his dummy Otto, manifesting bipolarity. No supernatural nuthin'. The hidden secret about this film is that it's a musical, replete with pre-Hays outfits and Zeigfeld like crowds of cast members, wherein the numbers performed get pretty trippy. The climax is wonderfully executed using the special effects of the day, bipack and dissolves. Stroheim while not actually doing the ventriloqism, performs beautifully with the dummy.

Ann Blyth with the Man of Steel

Saw this on tumblr and thought it was cool because Mister Peabody and the Mermaid is a great film, and hey- Ann Blyth making the scene with Superman in Action Comics 130, WTF? Some kinda cross-promotion, no? They've even got a cameo by the great Nunnally Johnson who wrote and produced the film. I've got to imagine it's possible to buy reprints somewhere but I can't find 'em.

I am KNOCKED OUT over the Catalogue of Cigarette Papers. I had no idea that the level of decoration (in the form of mostly chromolithograph) existed for this type of product, and that images of the packets have been archived.

Cycling 2012 - Mile 500

Milestone - literally - on the side of the road in the rushes. I was going to go down Pennsville-Auburn Road but lately there's been a lot of bad ..... mojo on that road, and while I have a scientific mind, I just wanted to let the moribund vibe get washed away with the rain.

So down King's Highway I went - it was beautiful going but the return was so windy that it was like walking back.
