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

halloween part 5: halloween 1987 style

in the year of our lard nineteen hunnert and eighty-sevin, i jived my way into the course for hi-skool students wherein we read shakespeare and saw plays for free. score. anyways, i guess my regular friends weren't quite as festive coz i ended up going with the shakespeare crowd to georgetown for the big halloween shindig in the streets. do they even do that anymore?

so that's some of the crew hanging at washington harbour before traipsing up to the main drag in georgetown. not to drop names, okay, i'm dropping names, but the guy on the left is the soon-to-be mayor of d.c. i'm just sayin'.

the shot above is blurry, but it captures pooty good the street action in M street i think. i dig the punk hair and the fruit of the loom head on the right.

this was my costume, i was trying to be laertes from hamlet. imagine me doing something culturally obscure, lol. but the main thing to note is the old skool red shag carpet and bordello wallpaper in our basement. i told you i was hardcore.

I, for one, would be proud to proclaim that I acquired rugburn from such a carpet.

Did your wife see this picture before she agreed to marry you?

How can you be Laertes? Do you proclaim your friendship to someone and then kill them?

tfg: when we tore that rug up we foudn all sorts of great lego pieces and assorted crap. sadly i did not save any carpet that i could lend you for said rugburn.

broadsheet: no, and that was all part of my fiendish plan. [boris karloff laugh]

acw: aw, you figured me out. btw, i think you and i should be spending more time together, PAL :) just no _naked_ swordfights...
