johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

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

get a piece of me, part 1

okay so me and the missus like to take a trip to the REAL o.c. during the off season, and this year due to circumstances, we figured the trip would be contingent on funding other than the ol' household expenses since like we're dipping dry in the ol' well of ducats so to speak. so we're shuffling off some junk from the vault, for fun and profit:

above: the mean ol' dirty bastard tiki mug, on the evil-bay:

a model 1918 german combat helmet - perhaps a technicality, but it's not knotzee, see?

hand painted lead role playing game figures - i painted them myself back in the crusty days of the 1980's. this was before everyone was on the internets playing virtual multiplayer combat. the 1980's were a strange and wonderous era.

a die-cast luger cap gun, made by lone star in england. that is kind of an odd cultural amalgamation, a british company named lone star making lugers. anyways, for the roll-type caps. remember them? before having a toy gun instantly made you a criminal?

and meanwhile, with the good folks at woodward's auction house over in hampden, we have many lots of our stuff on the chopping block. this is not all that is there, but merely a sampling, an amuse-bouche so to speak.

vinyl records! no download required!

fans - start your own club.

cameras and radios! no flash memory or usb cord required!

that auction at woodward's is listed for today starting at 4PM, really, they have lots of interesting stuff there - if you've never been to an auction, it is an experience you should have once in your life.
