Above: On the debit side it should read ‘Woefully, Tragically Unavailable.’ I wonder how many ‘social drinkers’ can go weeks (if not months) without their hootch before they start climbing the walls?

Above: Brother of dancer Isadora, Raymond Duncan (right) was interviewed in the 1950s TV show Around the World With Orson Welles: Above: Daughter of James Joyce, Lucia Joyce studied dance with Isadora Duncan, had an affair with Samuel Beckett, was analyzed by Carl Jung, and died in a mental hospital. Via No You Shut Up. Above: A (perhaps justifiably) forgotten 60s ‘comedy’ featuring several cast members from TV’s Hogan’s Heroes. But did fans of Kill Bill make the connection? Without Googling it, that is... Above: The original coming attraction for Giant Spider Invasion (1975), a film your humble narrator eyewitnessed at a drive-in in Buffalo, New York in 1976, on a bill with Night of the Cobra Woman. If my memory’s correct, what you see here is infinitely superior to the feature itself. Alan Hale, Jr., ‘Skipper’ on Gilligan’s Island, plays the sheriff.

They are what they do, and one of the finest parts of the technique of working is to enjoy what you’re doing and do it as a game….Not to make money, not to produce, but to make yourself in working…that’s the end in view, whereas in today, people destroy themselves in working.”
