Two terrific sites highlighting found photos:
MangoFalls is a spectacular site where a guy trolls thrift stores and develops the film in old cameras:
SquareAmerica is an amazing site with some quality found photos.
Special attention should be paid to the SquareAmerica gallery titled "The Party"
which seems to be some kind of swinging bi-racial party from the early '70s(?).
It is called "the Party" for a reason, because it is clearly THE Party.
Video of The Implosion of The Frontier Casino in Las Vegas.
Sigh, I will always remember with fondness the prostitute that tried to pick me up while I was playing video blackjack in the Frontier casino right outside the Micky Gilley's that had bikini bullriding. I hope she got out in time.
You may be a rockstar at at Guitar Hero, but how would you fare against "Cowbell Hero?"
"I put my pants on just like the rest of you - one leg at a time Bruce Dickinson: Except, when my pants are on, I make gold records ..."
Guitar Hero Bob "Lava" Mouton brings to my attention this guy called "Plectrum34" who pulls off some really faithful Nick Drake re-creations (without the depression, insomnia and suicide, apparently).
For fun, it's the Bar Scene from Weird Science.
"Listening to this blues music reminds me of my own trials and tribulations as a young guy.
My folks really dump on me. You guys get along with your parents?"
