Everyone talks about Tor's appearance in Plan 9 from Outer Space, but for me, the Beast of Yucca Flats is the #1 Tor Johnson movie!

That Rico & the Ravens record was one of the longest-running residents of the Great Jones jukebox. Brings me right back into the weeds!
  2:07pm Henry taco 2012 death:

“I am very sorry to have to announce to everyone that it looks like Henry’s will be closing for good on December 31. As some of you know, Henry’s is just too much for me as a single, childless woman approaching 60 with no family within 1,700 miles. I have had several prospective buyers committed to continuing the tradition, but all have been turned down by the landlord.

The current prospective buyers have agreed to all the landlord’s terms, but he has ceased communicating with them. Therefore, I have given my noticeand it has been accepted by the landlord.”

Speaking with her on the phone shed a little more light on her situation. “Last year, when we reached our 50th anniversary, I really wanted to preserve my family’s legacy,” Janis told me.

“So I applied to have Henry’s preserved as a historical monument. That’s when everything started going down hill.”By doing so, she believes she upset property manager Mehran Ebrahimpour beyond repair. “I think he felt like I was trying to put restrictions on his property, and he’s had a vendetta against me ever since,” Janis asserts. “He increased my rent by 50%—which I’ve been paying for a year now—but he won’t officially renew my lease. And now, I’m finally at a point where I can’t do it anymore. It’s too much. My family is in Arkansas… I want to go to graduate school… but this nightmare [with Ebrahimpour] has taken its toll on me. I had no idea filing for the historical recognition would be emotional and financial suicide.”
