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

meine grosse fahrt*

well i done been back from travails for about a week, and have finally dragged my internets hiney to post some highlight pix:

drank some beer at oktoberfest. mmm... beer as big as your head...

observed the burger king "angry whopper" ad compaign. what makes german whoppers angry has yet to be determined.

ate some pig.

saw some beermaids on trailers...

ate some OX.

drank some more beer as big as my head...

drank a fogcutter at trader vic's...

saw the art of schmuck

"please defend yourself from refrigerator attack by throwing spears"

guess angerhangover was here...

pet a kitty
btw "katzenjammer" in german means "hangover," but literally means "cats howling."

saw the terminator sword!!!

more cowbell!

it would have been a sad trip without at least one 'verboten' sign.

visited castle wolfenstein...

this must be the haus they keep the rats in...

gas stations: the perfect place to purchase jagermeister.

and, this st. bernard perfectly expresses my physical state at the end of the trip. the fact that he lives at a brewery might provide you with further insight.

*"my big trip" in german. seriously

I do get around.

You can take J$ outta B'more, but I guess B'more is all co-dependent and has to be wherever J$ is, hence the rathaus.

Have you slimmed down, J$, or are those beers are just so freaking big that they make you look like a wee lad?

I must get my German-descended arsch over there sometime soon.

anghang: you're an international bright young thing.

re: my own wee-ness (?? lol!) i am not quite so wee or coiffed as my avatar now, but i was a bit down weightwise before the trip, only to literally gain at least 10 lbs while there.

platy-p: ja.

lordy, thankfully no.

radio bayern was mostly playing 50's, 60's and 70's american pop. it was like someone took vintage a.m. radio and threw it in a blender.
