Irresistiblement


Totally loving Sylvie Vartan, can't get this song out of my head.  I also just found out that she's been married to Tony Scotti for like 30 years.  I always wondered what happened to him after "Valley of the Dolls"

Enjoy this TV clip.  There's another clip of this song, but sadly, I can't embed it.  The other one is black and white and looks like an outtake from "Barbarella"

auto erotica

Walking down center street last night, I saw the car of my dreams. A Karmann Ghia convertible. Le Sigh. I always said, if ever I was to start driving, I'd want a Karmann Ghia. Since my driving would be more a hobby than a necessity, I don't need a practical car, just a fun car. Growing up,  I used to love MGs.  My childhood was during the last gasp of the MG, as they went out of production circa 1982. I still do love them, but KGs are simply gorgeous. So retro, so otherworldly. Also, being German, rather than British, they are less likely to be a royal pain in the ass.  The engines were the same used in the VW beetle, and the electrical system while not perfect, a hell of a lot better than Morris Garages... 

Anyway, I snapped this white cabriolet. I don't love the color, but it's a convertible, and simply stunning...

Lesley Gore on Scopitone

In answer to ravenspb 's posting, here's a Scopitone from Lesley Gore. I have no idea why there are so many panty closeups. It's actually a little disturbing. Also, said "wonder boy" looks a little long in the tooth. This video probably could be dubbed with "Don't Stand So Close to Me" and be equally effective...

poor lonely bear

Back when I was taking an adult ed photography course, I had my 35mm camera with me a lot.  I found this poor abandoned bear sitting as photographed on a mail box on Arlington St, at the bus stop across the street from where I was working at the time.

Somehow, it reflected my mood last weekend.  Not sure why....oh wait, of course.  Now I remember, it was pride last weekend, and that always leaves me without any *lol*.
