Hopefully will be back up to speed in time for our ten year anniversary in August but recently it's been a scramble of health issues, getting David through his finals and ready for next week's high school graduation (He's Salutatorian!), scrambling to try and make some money after losing two sources of income around the same time and dealing with neighbor issues. In the meantime, here's some more recent art of mine. If you like what we do here, now is a good time to consider a blog donation in the sidebar. Thanx!

Apparently, Amy Schumer has been around for 7 or 8 years now and had her own show for three seasons. Somehow I had never heard of her until a few weeks back but all of a sudden she seemed to be everywhere so yesterday I finally watched a clip of her that someone posted on Facebook. Today she's my new favorite person. Cute, smart, perceptive and utterly fearless as a comic. It doesn't all work but, when it does, it works on multiple levels and goes a lot deeper than just dirty jokes. I've spent today overindulging on every episode of her INSIDE AMY SCHUMER series I can find and watching all her clips and interviews on YouTube. If you're easily offended, stay away. Run. Now. If not, however, I highly recommend checking her out!

An obsession of mine for some years now has been the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair, notable for its iconic Trylon and Perisphere. Here are some vintage posters along with some stills of Elektro the Westinghouse robot (as well as his dog and a mummy).

Four unaired TV pilots for television Westerns. The 1958 James Drury pilot for THE VIRGINIAN, a slightly different version of WAGON TRAIN, and the highlight is RANDOLPH SCOTT'S THEATER OF THE WEST which is virtually not documented in any reference guides. Rory Calhoun hosts WESTERN STAR THEATRE with "Diamond Field Jack," an episode that was later re-edited for use on DEATH VALLEY DAYS.
Only $6.99 each.
