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

You guys are so goofy. I wasn't even alive yet, and that saddens me. I never had that experience; I will NEVER be able to say, "yeah, I dressed up like Yoda and went to see it when it first came out."

Damn it.

I saw it first in the 57 Drive-In in Grafton, Wisconsin. I saw it 9 times in the theatre. It's funny how when you watch it now you find so much 70's slang in it.
