Friday Music Break

You too will want to hold hands with Robert Redford when you listen to John Barry's luscious theme from Out of Africa. Music starts as soon as the plane takes off:

Doesn't the first part sound like a old James Bond movie?

Chisholm Larsson Poster Shop

Passed by this poster shop and couldn't help going in and shooting everything. The guys inside were really sweet too and let me have my way with them. Check their collection out on:

No One is Gay Anymore!

I passed by a local video store that had these charming boxes displayed in the window. It made me think. Three out of the four men on these boxes were gay or bi. And they were all top-selling leading men of Hollywood in the 30s and 40s. Of course they were all in the closet. Now it's 70 years later. And our leading men are still in the closet. Unless no one is gay anymore.

Sub-Freezing Advertising

I took a walk today and found these! I'm particularly impressed by the Ritz ad - it's so cute and 60s-ish. Click on it to enlarge - the copy is hilarious.

Door Handle of the Year

You can caress this loveliness at the Marc Ecko store in Chelsea - 8th Ave between 17 &18. There are some amazing paintings inside done by Marc he'self, but the manager wouldn't let me take pictures. They also have a cool chandelier made of beer bottles, and a tree that grows partially in the store and then breaks out to the outside through a hole in the glass ceiling. Girls, you've gotta check this place out.
