and their lovely lingerie catalog, vavavavooooom!

I seem to remember those exact pages from when I was between about 12-14 and my Grandmother would hand me the Sears catalog and say "Let me know what you want for Christmas, and maybe you'll get it."

I got a lot of toys and shirts, but never one of those girls.  :P

Brett:  Maybe they wanted to get away from Musk, and sold their stock as a "f him, I'm out of here" type thing.

Not a smart long-term financial move, but I can understand that sort of motivation.

IMO, there needs to be on ballots, in every election, a box that reads:  "Check here to throw them all out and start over."

That'd get my vote!

+1.  As bad as it was to go through, he lucked out.  Fire on your face usually does not end well.

^^^ How many muscle cars in the '70s had a set of these?  A ton of them in SoCal. Stuffed under jacked-up Camaros and Mustangs and just about everything else. Vegas and VWs too.

I never owned a set (I was a BFG Radial T/A guy) but my buddies with them said they were even worse than the T/As for hydroplaning.
SCARY on the freeway in a rainstorm!

I purposely haven't watched anything that Azz Monkey Richard has been involved with for a few years, but does it seem to you guys like he's mellowed a bit in his old-ish age?

 I didn't watch the entire video, but I didn't see one devil's horns hand gesture or hear that goofy WHHHOOOP noise he makes.

In 2012, I worked on a TV show called "Alcatraz". I was the Sound Supervisor. The episode featured a recreation of the Bullitt car chase. Ford was involved and they loaned me a new GT to record. We recreated all of the Mustang sounds for the chase. I was a fun project and Ford had a link to it on their website for a while.

That's pretty damm cool. Very nice job on the scene-matching...and on the audio mixing!

I like that chick. She can drive stick. 

Who were the stunt drivers?

Brett, you sure have a bunch of great old-time family mementos.  The big box I had with all of my grandparents' stuff got stolen by movers, but I didn't miss it for about six months. By then, too late.

I learned from that to never write much about what's in any box that a mover will see or touch.  I remember having written something like "Grandma's silverware, etc." 

Now I write "Old Gym Socks, Box 1", etc.  I keep a separate list of what's in each box, and it makes the moving company guys wonder why anyone'd have 200+ boxes of old gym socks.   Haven't lost a box ever since.

crossboss wrote: Its shot on 35mm film with a 50mm lens, with the focus set to infinity with a small aperture on the lens (closed down) at round an F.11 (no more than F.4) for the long sharp depth of field.

A guilty pleasure of mine is late nights watching every one of these "movie b-roll background traveling shots" I can find online. YouTube has quite a lot. 

They were typically filmed for movies/TV for the rear-projection shots of actors riding in the car, with this footage seen out the side and rear windows.

Now, they're precious time-capsules.

So bitchin to see the city from many decades ago,  so candidly.  Gives a real feel for how it felt to be there.  Not CGI crapola. 

The Lounge / Re: Who was the best oldies Radio DJ ?
« on: November 18, 2022, 05:29:54 PM »
Goring up in SoCal, we had the top jocks and the original Drake-Chenault "Boss Radio" format.  They were the radio-whisperers (more like "yellers") that were hired to rescue ailing stations across the county. 

The Real Don Steele, Charlie Tuna, Robert W. Morgan, and the rest were legends.

The day I won a collection of Top 30 records from a KHJ call-in contest (AND Robert W. Morgan said my whole name on the radio!) I was suddenly (and for that day only) the coolest kid in my school.
