johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

lancelot link and judas priest


as author douglas coupland has noted, as generation x (that's us for the most part) we are primarily linked together by our shared memories of television shows and pop culture. of course, he's canadian so take that for what it is.

documentarian jeff krulik is a maryland boy who seems to have his finger steadily on the pulse of pop culture that is truly relevant. well, to me, anyways.



witness: heavy metal parking lot, a docu in which heavy metal fans wait in the parking lot outside of the capital centre, maryland on may 31 1986 (dat's 20 YEARS ago!) for a judas priest concert. these people WALKED AMONG US...

click here to watch it, it's so worth it,.,.,.
(under "parking lots")

check out the bowie accent on the redhead ~ yowza



years later, mr. k deftly interviews the gentlemen responsible for the tv show lancelot link. watch it here if you don't feel like a c.h.u.m.p... (fourth from the top)

what's not to like? i have yet to watch all his documentaries, but everything i have seen is good...
