my friend lois sent me these pics a week or so ago, each one deserving of the caption...
when i was a kid, i had this poster, same caption, called "bridge out." it was a woodcut or lithograph or etching or something in that old-timey style and printed only in black on sepia-colored paper. it was a train crash, a locomotive, that had come up on a railroad bridge that wasn't ready for the weight. the engine had sorta nose-dived through the bridge and into the embutment. it didn't look like anyone had actually been hurt in the crash--i think i even remember the engineer looking out the window all confused--as some old-timey guys and looky-loos surveyed the scene. can't find the image anywhere on this great big magical internets, but it was cool and it hung in my room for years.
and here are your
five for friday!
the other day i was watching a movie from the 80s that was supposed to be taking place in 60s that was directed by a guy who created a tv show in the 70s about growing up in the 50s...which has absolutely nothing to do with the following questions about the 50s.
not the decade--just the numbers.
1. number of varieties that heinz boasts.
2. top secret air base in nevada (where they allegedly keep the aliens).
3. new york's most famous--and infamous--disco club in the 70s.
4. five-oh! where did this slang term come from and why?
5. cop comedy from the early 60s. "car __, where are you?"
6. card game that involves the dealer firing the cards all over the room.
bonus: can you name the movie from the 80s about the kid in the 60s?
and the creator of the show from the 70s about life in the 50s?
that's it!--i'm on a boat!
smell ya later!
