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

the interwebs does connect us all indeed

the interweb does connect everyone.

fer example.

do you know that food network show the ace of cakes? so anyways the receptionist for that business (charm city cakes) is part of that reality show, and also had a blog for awhile (it shut down)

so like 2 years ago i did a blog post about captain 20, and she left a comment on my blog saying she grew up in rockville and met captain 20 (back in the day) and was star struck by him. i think she even went to the church one of my best friends went to. so i emailed her and asked if she knew them and she said no.

so like 2 days ago i was telling my honny that i'm sorry that we don't have good cable coz i liked the ace of cakes... you know, it's all shot around here and is good image repair for baltimore.

and this morning, i got an email FROM HER (mary alice) coz she must have had my email address from when i asked her if she knew my friends' family. it was an invitation to a party on the 15th that is co-sponsored by charm city cakes.

odd. yet cool.

growing up star wars on flickr

image courtesy of neato coolville

one of my favourite bloggers and his cronies started a great flickr group called "growing up star wars 1977 - 1985..."

in my opinion, a brilliant piece of pop cultural anthropology.

i got to wrest the family photo albums and get some scan on! i know for a fact i have some drawings of a snoopy version of star wars somewhere...

if you have anything to contribute, i highly recommend you join that flickr group and get scanning... you rebel scum.
