One of the best shows ever written and produced. Four seasons of sci-fi, drama, action, humanity, mysticism, and hope. If you haven’t seen it, get on hulu plus and spend the time. The storyline is incredible, the actors awesome, the characters very deep and the effects top-notch.
Still one of my absolute favorite videos… Christopher Walken displaying his original Broadway training and breaking the mold of playing the bad guy…
The Winslow house: my favorite of Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. While most people go ga-ga over Fallingwater, the Winslow house amazes me for how different it was for its time. It was designed and built in 1893-1894. American residential architecture at the time looked something like this:
If you do a comparison, the Winslow house looks truly “futuristic” as opposed to the popular Queen Anne style of the era. The Winslow house has a shallow-pitch roof, a broad low chimney, a lack of orate detail and a simple shape that really put the house ahead of its time. To us in this century, the Winslow house doesn’t look that all extraordinary. Surrounded by the “dollhouses” of the era, though, the Winslow house really shows the evolving, forward-thinking style of America’s greatest architectural mind.
1968 Dodge Polara - the one pictured is very much like the one I had (and miss), but mine was more aquamarine than blue.
I just loved the Chrysler styling of that era.
The car pictured above has a great story behind it: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3215842/1968-dodge-polara
That car is HUGE… I think it measured something like 17 or 19 feet long…
Kinda regret getting rid of it, but I had to do what I had to do at the time.
