A few weeks ago––while on my ever-ongoing mannequin hunt––I dragged out Mom & Dad to check the wears-and-wiles of a few locales. One was DOLLY PYTHON VINTAGE (1916 N Haskell Ave, Dallas, TX). Although the mannequins they had were out of my budget, it was nonetheless a very cool shop and worth checking out. I'll be back to visit, myself, from time to time!

I didn't personally take these pics, but enjoy some good ones from the world online.

Many of you know DEREK CHEEK's very excellent bass playing with ≈9x, but his daughter, BAYLEIGH CHEEK, is launching her own career onto the Dallas music scene. Check out this chat with BAYLEIGH in VOYAGE DALLAS MAGAZINE. Congrats dad and daughter Cheek and the whole Cheek family!

Woohoo! The parents and I saw the
TCM 60th Anniversary Screening of VERTIGO today!

VERTIGO has been on the top of my list of favorite HITCHCOCK films for a long time. It was great fun to watch it on the big screen at the NorthPark AMC Theater. The film is still haunting and beautiful, with excellent moments of actor intensity and superior dialogue. JIMMY STEWART was excellent as the acrophobic and tragic ex-detective obsessed by KIM NOVAK (as Madeleine), who is so sexy hot in her gray perfectly-tailored dress-suit and ashy-blonde hair, it's almost mind boggling. I still said WOW! 

Look for a VERTIGO showing on the big screen near you:
Enjoy this video of Vertigo 60th Anniversary (1958)

And yum! KIM NOVAK as Madeleine in VERTIGO.
I understand how JIMMY STEWART'S character, John Ferguson, felt.

For my great friend VITINA and her post celebrating PI DAY yesterday, March 14th. Also it was ALBERT EINSTEIN's birthday! But sadly, it was also the day we lost the amazing physicist STEPHEN HAWKING. Quite a day.

Enjoy this wonderful song about PI from
the incomparable KATE BUSH...

MOVIE UPDATE–– "Human No More (The Feature)"

Went on another mannequin quest today and ended up at LUCAS ANTIQUES AND ART. Great place and one booth had many things mannequin. I picked up two female hands I liked. I've found, however, that the more I search for mannequins, the more I start to look like one–––even a puppet maybe (photographic evidence below).
