I first discovered his work not long before a friend introduced me to Harlan's, and the sui generis creations of both men have helped me to decide what to value in life.

First an apology. IF you aren't an American, this next thing probablly won't make much sense to you.

But for those of us who ARE....


I bet there are very few of us who haven't been to Disneyland at least once in our lives. Look, I know how HE feels about the place, but I loved it as a kid, i

Anyways, I was dealing with a USEnet group, and someone posted a link to this wonderful site called Yesterland. The gentleman who produces this site has gone out of his way to find pictures of all the things that Disney has removed from it's Anehime park. Check it out.

Love that site, Lori. It's a great resource and a lot of fun if you're a little longer in the tooth than a teenager.

You might also enjoy http://www.doombuggies.comif you're a fan of the Haunted Mansion(s).
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Thanks Steve

My dad loves to tell me about the first time I ever entered that place. I refused to remove my head from his shoulder for most the ride.

When he finally got me to look up, it was the end of the ride, you know where one of the Hitchhiking Ghosts apear. Dad is so fond reminding me that he's still not too sure who was more green, me or that ghost.

We only need to transform the rest of LA into Mainstreet USA.

Hello my friends....

We are going to take a side track from dank and dismal today....

A good friend of mine sent me the following Video clip and It had me giggling. We can use all the giggles we can get in this day of hatred and derision...

http://tinyurl.com/32wemch

And this I copied off of a USEnet group I sometimes read......


Two great white sharks, swimming in the ocean, spied survivors of
a sunken ship.
"Follow me, son." the father shark said to the son shark and they
swam to the mass of people.

"First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our
fins showing." And they did.

"Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few more times with all
of our fins showing." And they did.

"Now we eat everybody." And they did.

When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we
just eat them all at first?

Why did we swim around and around them?

His wise father replied,

"Because they taste better without the shit inside!"

I suppose one of the most iconic images in film is Elsa Lancaster in James Whale's 1935 BRIDE of FRANKENSTEIN, as iconic as Boris Karloff's monster.

For Lori and whoever else is plugged in-

OH Ezra....

I think I'm gonna ask you to marry me once a week. Sooner or later you'll agree just to shut me up! Thanks for the gentle reminder that we are all beautiful in someone's eyes, we just have to keep searching for them.

Oh angel those long distance relationships never work. :(

But someday I will make it to SF and you can show me the town. :)
