I'm concerned there might be a lack of Brady Bunch fashion spread material on Google+, so here you go. #BradyBunch #MarciaBrady #MollyWeber
We're on a 70s-era roll around here. I'm going to keep it going with a Brady Bunch episode that's always haunted me. I don't sit around thinking about the Brady Bunch too often, but back in my youth, I was fairly obsessed wit...

Golden hits from Barbara Manning.
Long, long ago, back in the early 90s, I was making films for fun and very little profit. Well, I don't think I ever made a profit, but I definitely broke even on these two, thanks to Matador Records' big-time budgets of $300...

Still relevant.
 “I’m just walking down the street minding my own business, construction worker says ‘Nice tits’...” Chia Pet were the in-house rock group of Sassy magazine, but they weren’t all that prolific. The group was led by Sassy’s “rock and roll” editor Christina Kelly, Kelly’s then-husband Bobby Weeks, her then-sister-in-law (and fellow Sassy writer) Jessica Vitkus Weeks on bass and Mary Ann Marshall (another Sassy writer) on drums.

Joshua Tree has an otherworldly vibe. It's the landscape, of course, but also the way the light bounces off the stones, stacked like building blocks.

Mono Lake is a fabulous place. #monolakephotography  
I just returned from a 1,500-mile road trip to California's coast, southern deserts and Eastern Sierras, and I took many, many photos. Editing down my thoughts and images from the trip has been, what I'd call, a task. So here...

"You bet your asteroid, kid. Hold on." #HardwareWars
  Hardware Wars is a thirteen-minute video parody of Star Wars that was released the same year as the original, 1977. Directed by Ernie Fosselius (the intro splash touts “20th Century FOSS”), the spoof, which is structured as a coming-soon preview, is essentially a MAD Magazine takedown come to life—albeit not quite as funny. The central joke is that all of the expensive sci-fi effects…

The Clean - give a listen to classic New Zealand rock.
The Clean formed in 1978 in Dunedin, New Zealand, or so claims Wikipedia. I think they formed in the brain-stem of a very spiritually inclined inter-planetary alien invader who passed as human sometime in the heyday of the pu...

18 months to restore a vandalized Rothko painting. I'd like to see the art world as full of women as the art-restoration world. Bang-up job.
Filmed over 18 months, the this new video Tate is the story behind the restoration of Mark Rothko's 'Black on Maroon'. Mark Rothko's &...

Vacation time coming up? Consider visiting California's vast desert region--like a trip to another planet. #deathvalleynationalpark #joshuatreenationalpark #monolake #palmsprings  
Ever since I got back from my April road trip, I've had writer's block of sorts. Not full-on, "I can't write" writer's block. Just laziness and ill-focus writer's block. Which is probably more lethal because it can drag on an...

Fungus among us.
 
A bamboo fungus, or Phallus indusiatus budding to its mature height of around 9.8 inches, with its net-like, skirt structure, called an indusium spreading down to hang off of its bell-shaped cap. #Biology   #Science
