If you have ever seen the movie "Phantasm"... will always walk AROUND these two posts
and NOT between them.

I like that.

A day or two or three ago I found a new incense burner at
Walmart. This one was only five dollars. I like it.

It burns stick incense unlike my other burners. It's fun
to burn sticks for a change. They burn longer than the cones.

The door on this thing creaked like The Black Pearl when I
opened and closed it and I was afraid that it would stress the hinges
to the point of breaking. So I went into my personal tool chest,
pulled out a little file I bought and filed the top and bottom
of the door a bit. Now? Smooth baby, smooth.

I have added "carpenter" to my resume.

This is a picture from my 2010 visit to the Gene Autry
Museum in Griffith Park, California. This is a prop "Wanted"
poster from the movie "The Big Bonanza" (1944). Pictured
is Richard Arlen who stars as Jed Kilton, a Captain in the Army
who escapes from prison after being falsely court
marshaled for cowardice.

Anyway, this item is no longer on view as it was in one of the
window displays here on the "Western Street Sound Stage"
section of The Autry, and this was
dismantled about four years ago.

I added yet another movie to my small but glorious
Jason Statham collection. I cannot believe these great
and fun movies are for the most part in the $3.74 bin
at Walmart. This is "Killer Elite". Once again my Jason
is a bad-ass guy. This time he is a retired hit man. You
do get to see him in hit mannish action and a bit of why
he decided to retire. This is another movie that did not
disappoint. No spoilers here.

Here is Jason with his suppressed Beretta Model 92SB
chambered in 9x19mm. He puts this gun to good use. I am
going to rate this movie seven out of ten Video Taped

Oh... I forgot to say that Robert De Niro is in this movie.
He is okay. He doesn't do a WHOLE lot. One good
scene where he kicks butt.

Family Guy's The Giant Chicken vs. Peter. A Mezco figure
that depicts a running joke of sorts on the television show.
I bought this figure seven or eight years ago. I wish I could
set it up as the stand is cool, but it would require more room
than I have.

This is Trails West at the Autry Museum in Griffith Park, California.
I have shown pictures of Trails West before, but I am showing this one
today because The Autry has made some unfortunate changes to TW.

This is "Trails West" today. It is now a place for cool people to
sit and read about plant life and yoga and finding yourself.
The Autry has asked me to reserve judgement until I visit,
but I don't have to. These pictures are of a garden that I can
visit in any backyard in Brentwood. Beloved Trails West, gone.
