  1. That's some very creative stuff... thanks for posting it!
  2. One of my all-time favorites is Edward Scissorhands. I like anything by Tim Burton, but this movie combines Johnny Depp's performance with biting satire & dark nods to oldies like Frankenstein, Pinocchio, & even Peter Pan! Johnny Depp, who played Edward S, has come a long way. I'm also fond of the whole 4-movie series, Pirates of the Caribbean.
  3. Wow! Yes, there could be no other possible explanation... unless, of course, she was using a Dictograph Acousticon hearing aid, or perhaps a Siemens 1924 hearing aid.
  4. I wish I had more of the dramatic views showing the local buildings with the jets roaring by just overhead, but catching these guys in your photographic field & getting off a shot or two is not as easy as you might think. Those planes are fast! They do their stunts over the Golden Gate, North of me (see loop-the-loop pic above), then fly in all different directions to turn around & regroup for the next formation stunt. Stunts vary from pairs of planes to the whole group, so at any time you can have one or a few of them suddenly go roaring by over your head. It helps that I've seen
  5. It's Fleet Week here in San Francisco, California again. Along with US naval ships, Sailors, Marines, etc coming to town, we are lucky enough to host the Navy's Blue Angels aerobatic flying team. The air show will be on this coming Saturday & Sunday, but weather permitting, the guys spend 3 days practicing over the city. Today was their 2nd day of practice, & I took my camera up to the roof of my building to see what I could get. They currently fly the F/A-18 Hornet, which looks like this: You would not believe the incredibly loud noise when they fly low, right over your head!
  6. I don't know about you, but there's always room in my life for more ribaldry... Must be the work of Satan
  7. Boris Vallejo's work is guaranteed to catch your eye on any magazine cover. Here's some more:
  8. Older than dirt here, I remember all that & more: Soda "machines" in the gas stations were really huge ice chests (usually a bright red one, with the Coca-Cola logo on it). For 10¢, which you put into the coin slot & turned a handle, you could open the lid on the chest, & there was all the soda, glass bottles floating in ice & water, from which you chose. Talk about the honor system, huh? And us kids never even thought of taking more than one bottle. Reading the "we didn't have green in my day" post reminded me of one of the stupidest of modern "conveniences", the electric
  9. Thank you for starting it! I hadn't thought about Bettie in a while, not that I could ever forget her completely. A couple of good photo collections of Bettie online, one here, and on this site, the first 2 gallery sections feature pics of Bettie, ranging from disappointingly tiny to pretty good quality & size. Including one more of the Jungle series: Oh heck, a few more before I go to bed: Okay, for me, time to grab some Zzzzz's
  10. Bettie practically invented this glamour/pinup expression, & I've never seen another model who could make it work for her so well:
  11. Almost forgot this Jungle pic: And another... Don't mess with Bettie! Unless she's in the mood...
