johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

My Photo
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

happie holidaze part 2: 'christmas story' house open in cleveland

word around the flagpole is that someone purchased ralphie's house featured in the 1983 classic movie "a christmas story" on ebay in 1994 and renovated it.

now, there is an adjacent museum and the home itself is open for public tours! anyone been there yet? i wanna go into the basement and yell "nadafinga!!!" at the boiler...

forgit john waters, this is our local hero

my swell bro alerted me to the fact that david hasselhof was from the b-more.

how has this fact been not celebrated up to this point?

please see the above artist's misconception of how to both improve penn station and admire hoff at the same time.

(get it? ad- mire-hoff? lololol...)

wondering about the twins

"and I ask you, where was my butt? one full minute and not one shot of my butt! you saw it, i bloody wanted to kill the editor. it was shot of boot, then shot belt, bull fighter, hair, crowd, face, hat, bull, boot, hair. and i told them specifically that it was supposed to be butt shot, shot of the hair, back to the butt, hand, butt, hand, butt, hand, butt, belt, butt, beard, butt, belt, butt, earring, face, butt, butt, earring, hold on the butt, hold on the butt, it's a formula but it bloody works!"
sorry i HAD to post that, after my previous post it basically meant i could not get anything done until i got this image out of my head and into the intarweb.
