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

i <3 spamalot

i give it two albatrosses up.

best of all, the actor who pays sir robin resembles eddie izzard, and the actor who plays patsy is mostly like baldrick from blackadder.


p.s. the hippodrome is beautiful, even if it has no hippoes in it.

Did you buy yourself a killer rabbit handpuppet and a "Fechez Le Vache" t-shirt?

Y'know, I'd always wondered about the etymology of the word "Hippodrome". Turns out it's latin for "horse track", so a hippodrome was originally a stadium for horse racing. Kind of boring, actually, so I prefer to think of it as an arena where lone warriors battle to the death against a horde of hungry, hungry hippopotamii.

heh, i was extremely tempted by both the killer rabbit handpuppet and the two half coconuts. but our house is so full of critters, both living and quasi, that i was afraid it would get lost in the shuffle.

i prefer your definition of hippodrome :D
