This photo of Joan Crawford sitting on a plastic covered couch in her Hollywood apartment is amazing in ways I can’t possibly convey! But I’ll try…
Yes, there’s an Oscar on the table next to… a bottle of Pepsi? Plus some other libation. The payoff, though, is the original Margaret Keane portrait hanging on the wall behind Joan. Apparently, Tim Burton has a Margaret Keane biopic in the works titled “Big Eyes” and THAT may be amazing!
Gone but never forgotten… Happy (what would have been) Birthday number 82 to Johnny Cash!! Born this day in 1932.

Don’t be lured to the mall for sales on things like TVs and shoes. Stay inside and celebrate Presidents Day by listening to some inauguration speeches on vinyl!
Shirley Temple Black passed away late last night at the age of 85. Beyond her remarkable career as a child actress, she devoted her time and energies to all kinds of service to benefit our socienty. A truly wonderful and great woman!!
RIP Shirley! April 23, 1928 to February 10, 2014
I attended the LA Art Show over the weekend, held in downtown LA at the convention center. This, a Red Raven Magic Mirror playing on a vintage kiddie turntable was on display as art. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to discern whether or not the record being spun (and animated, for those of you who may not be familiar with the magic mirror) was one of the many commercial Red Raven records, or (maybe, he said hopefully) a creation of the artist who displayed the work. If anyone can provide more information I’ll do a followup post!

1959 on Capitol Records.
After looking for this LP for quite some time, I finally found it this morning at an estate sale for a dollar.
