13 O'clock? It's either haunted or that's a reference to Bobby Goldsboro's "Watching Scotty Grow"...
Got my TV back, and I truly love its mid century / Danish modern vibe...I rearranged the living room to include it:
It does work...
|That's strong man Peter Lupus in the 1st season of Mission Impossible...|
|...and that's the famous opening scene of M.I. with the match lighting the fuse as Lalo Schifrin's iconic theme music plays in the background...|
|Love the art deco styling of this classic timepiece...|
(studious bc they involve books, of course...)
The haunted books are better than the witches' spell book...for animated props, I want them to be a few seconds of "scary sounds" and maybe a few guttural groans...I can definitely do without 60 seconds of inane monologue...there are few things more annoying than a public speaker who doesn't know when to shut up, but this prop may be one of them...not sure if I'll use it this year or not.
We've had a couple of storms in the last few weeks with high winds, and even though we closed our patio umbrella, it still got pretty messed up...so we replaced it this week:
love the orange / red color, and this one should be a little sturdier since it's not connected from one point at the top...looks good imho.
Karen's up north with her progeny this weekend, so I'm doing the bachelor thing again...got some projects done around the house, and then settled in the theater room to watch one of my favorite flicks: The Rocketeer. Here's a scene from the "South Seas Club" just as they start to play "Begin the Beguine":
More 1930's art deco elegance...great film, great scenery.
Later, mcm fans...
