Smile For The Kitty (All Photos By Gail)

Don’t let anyone make the excuse that this is a kids’ camera, because this Hello Kitty face with a lens sticking out of it is a big fucking hunk of camera that is much too unwieldy for tiny child-sized hands. But, whatever; this is a film (not digital) camera manufactured by Fujifilm and you can buy it online at Amazon right now for about $80!

Spotted at the PhotoPlus Expo in NYC.

When you’ve watched as many cake baking competition shows as I have, you know how hard it is to deliberately make a cake that looks like it’s falling apart, but really isn’t. Check out a screen grab from the original Disney film Sleeping Beauty and you can see that whoever made this cake did a pretty amazing job! Just look at those candles!

Remembering Harry Nilsson on his Birthday

Harry Nilsson Grave Stone

The late, great singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson was born on this day, June 15th, in 1941. I recently watched the unbelievably well-made documentary, Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)? which is now available on DVD via Netflix.

I’m a huge fan of Nilsson’s music, as he reached the height of his popularity in the sixties and seventies, when I was growing up, so I thought I knew a lot about the guy.

Classic Punk Rock Single of The Day: The Clash, “Straight to Hell”

Straight to Hell

On this Date in 1982: The Clash released their nineteenth single, “Straight To Hell” as a double-A side which included “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” In the U.S., “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” was the feature track and reached the #45 spot on the singles chart. When “Straight to Hell” was re-released in 1991 with a different B side, it reached the #1 spot in the U.K. “Straight to Hell” is my favorite song by The Clash. Clash vocalist Joe Strummer also starred in the 1987 Alex Cox film Straight To Hell, which took its name from the song.
