Bonus 2 - Marvin Gaye - I Heard It Through The Grapevine (A capella)

He'll be grown up now, and could be Chief of Police, Mafia Enforcer or Captain of Industry. Makes no difference, I know he used to look like an odd little fellow.

Haven't a clue who the Van Wegals (Van Weigals?) are, but that was what was written on the slide.
I'm guessing a favoured Van Weigal fellow has gotten engaged, and is bringing his fiance to meet the uncles. At a distinctly home-built home in the sticks. Notice the logs bottom right - any relation of Twin Peaks "Log Lady"??
I also like Uncle Louis - far left - clearly worried that the photograph might steal his soul...
Bonus - Last Night - Mysterious Lights in the UK skies.
Thirty Three Years Ago - Mysterious Flash in the sky
Bonus 2 -

Here we have Donatello and Raphael collecting a sh*t-load of kendo stick for more practise. Don't mess with The Turtles.

Love the decor. I'm going out on a limb here - modern life has gotten more boring since people stopped installing bars in the corner of their log cabins.
Bonus - Woman gave birth to horse in Nigerian church (with picture !)
Bonus 2 - Man rapes duck in Turkish village

Sometimes, it doesn't matter how much sunshine your city gets. Or how much leisure time you have. Or how many swimsuits you own.
Sometimes, you just get overwhelmed by the immense boredom or existence. At that point, everything is just...meh.
There doesn't need to be a particular reason, tho' maybe there's a trigger for it. Like here, where Mildred's ennui is triggered by the realisation that she has a crinkly boob.
Bonus - Barney Gumble's Movie
Bonus 2 - Dull News in Local Papers
Friday, 14 September 2012
People sometimes ask me about the development of the accordion / squeeze-box with referece to modern pop music.
Well, I say "sometimes" but what I mean is "once".
And even then, those weren't the words they used.
And I was very, very drunk at the time.
Bonus - Joanie's hidden talent
Bonus 2 - Modern Freaks

Frexample, this little church. I tracked it down to be the Star of the Sea Painted Church on Hawaii Island. The church used to stand in the town of Kalaplana, but that was swallowed by lava from the Kilauea Volcano, and the townsfolk managed to move the church out of harms way. It now stands isolated near the destroyed village.
I suspect this is pre-move.
Bonus - How I feel about work, at the moment

Glistening in all its glory.
Would grace any fine front door.
Bonus - Oh how the world has changed. Anti-Soviet warrior puts his army on the road to peace. Worth a click. :-)

Weddings and Church are the obvious examples of such a social gathering, but here we have Edna demonstrating that a visit to the local abandoned abattoir needs a suitable Titfer. And what a hat it is. This one is from the Victoria Beckham Premium collection, and here is rendered in crushed purple velvet to match Edna's girdle.
Bonus - Don't Look Down.
Bonus 2 - Autumnal Arrival

September is here, so I'm going to have to start thinking about next year's Slide Guy Calendar, and this clown (and his family) is definitely in contention.
Anyone who wants a wall calendar, please get in touch.
Bonus - Stanley Kubrick definitely loves his One-Point Perspective shots.

As a minor observation....capitalism in action.
A zoo, obviously...so they've paid to enter the zoo. Still, the entrance fee will go toward care and food. But, lo, observe the pole-mounted machine. Yes, you pay for a handful of dirt-cheap food to feed to the deer.
The best way to improve your profits, would be to make the deer-food from dead critters ! Ain't Capitalism Great ?
Bonus - Lovely mental images from this "Worst Person for the Job" discussion.
Bonus 2 - Children vs Animals
Thursday, 6 September 2012
From the box of slide covering a School's Trip To Majorca at Easter, 1971. Obviously, most of the slides are the traditional predictable "Here's Bob with a waiter" sort of guff, but just occasional there's a more creative shot.
Like this one.
Bonus - I wonder - was the message was understood?

A little moment of history.
Deeply significant for husband, wife and son involved, but totally irrelevant to everyone else in the photo (and modern viewers as well. Probably)
Yes, that does appear to be a Boeing 727 in the background.

My first thought was that Natural Bridge was an archaic and endangered card game, but actually it's actually another battle in the American Civil War, this time in Florida.
Fans of the blog will recognise Maude in this slide, and will undoubtedly conclude that this was another horrendously deteriorated Ektachrome slide, made readable by witchcraft and conversion to monochrome. And they'd be right.
Bonus - For Reb - The Flying Tiger Aerial Attack (with optional cat.)
Bonus 2 - Shaolin Ballet Stance?
Sunday, 2 September 2012
Summertime. Perfect time for the family to decamp to Olsen Pond, and muck about in inner tubes. Great fun.
At least until someone remembers the decomposing body that they found there.
Bonus - Speaking of dead bodies and bodies of water - Where the wild roses grow.
