Made Me Cry

Okay, I cannot be held responsible if you watch this and you choke up, okay? It’s REALLY well done, and I started blubbering when I got to the end of it. I plan to write to the photographer. (I’m in the middle of re-uploading my Whalom Park photo album – the one I took 5 […]


Goodbye, Black Hole

I’m in mourning. I’ve talked about this before, but to heck with it, I’m talking about it again. Whalom Park is gone. Well, it was technically gone when they auctioned off all the rides, but now it’s gone because they’re flattening the place. I’m one of those stupid blind believers who could drive past the […]


Mittens! Where Are My Mittens?

Man it was coooold this morning. My hands were very unhappy with the temperature of the steering wheel for the first 5 minutes or so this morning. I couldn’t really do anything about it, because I’m still in summer mode where of course it’s not going to be “cold” out. Except according to the thermometer […]


Witch’s Woods Review

Join Us!

I am participating again. Christine had better start planning now, because I’m not going to take no for an answer this year. Do you hear me, Christine? Reid, are you out there? I’m talking to you! Plus we can use it as an excuse to have girl’s night out at Panera Bread, or someplace like […]


Drum Dreams

So all you old school ELO fans should recognize the title of this post is the B-side of a circa for the All Over the World 45. That’s right, kidlings, I’m talking about a 45-RPM recorded disk that was issued back around 1980 from the soundtrack to the movie Xanadu. You have seen Xanadu, right? […]


Lord of the Dance Update

Wow, how long has it been since I posted one of these!!! As I was telling dump reader (and now my Toontown friend) Beth the other night, one of the first regular features of the original dump 11 years ago was a Lord of the Dance Update. Because the people need to know. I got […]


Why Aren’t You Watching?

I just saw a news report that you people aren’t watching Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, the brilliant Monday Night show that you are supposed to be watching. I certainly hope you aren’t watching something else. Or worse, not watching television at all? Now I’m the first to not watch things. There are a […]
