Handy, the squirrels have been fed, and fresh supplies of beer and chocolate purchased. So all told, things aren’t too bad today.

President Truman promised an Army Air Corps B-25 would airlift reverb to Staten Island. Apparently the pilot got confused and airlifted new cardstock for Strat-o-Matic baseball on LONG Island.

Avatar 1:18pm RetroArt:

Barbara Lang?! "House Of Numbers" is an awesome prison-break flick from 1957 with her and Jack Palance (playing a duo twin brothers role) and Edward Platt (the Chief from "Get Smart") as the hard-assed warden of San Quentin. Worth a viewing.

Avatar 1:20pm RetroArt:

In the late 1980s I had to commute every day from St. George, S.I. to Manhattan by ferry to go to NYU. Walking that steep hill of Hyatt St during the cold, icy winters was an adventure.
  1:20pm David in London:

There’s probably a supply of Her Majesty’s reverb in Bermuda. I could make a request to have it flown up to Staten Island?

Hey Earth Walker. How are you man?

Rex- I had to trek from the top of the hill on Fort Place all the way down to the Ferry terminal. Rain or shine. The late nights walking back up the hill through that area was...interesting. More like I ran home at night.

When I was a kid there was a funky chinese restaurant in St. George, maybe on Central Ave, that was even in the late 1970s a place out of another time. Wonder if it is still there? Like a Schezchuan style Brigadoon.

Rex: I finally did some research on one of your film excerpts ("My morals have no zipper...") from The Scarf and discovered that the actress, Mercedes McCambridge, (as I'm sure you know) also provided the voice for the demon Pazuzu in The Exorcist. Thanks for furthering my knowledge of both American musicological and film history.
