A Funny Thing Happened On My Way To The Blog
It’s 11:30 and I’m sitting in the Business Center of the Monterey Marriott, feeling guilty about not having posted anything since the 11th of September.
I started a great story about my wife and me going to a rock concert in Italy. That post will appear soon. But, as the cliché goes “shit happens.”
So, until I spin that yarn, here’s a video clip from You Tube to amuse you.
It comes from the movie “International House,” a strange comedy from 1933 with a cast that includes W.C. Fields, George Burns, Bela Lugosi and – for you buffs of real movie esoterica – Franklin Pangborn. The plot, such as it is, revolves around a hotel in the Chinese town of Wu-Hu where a collection of wacky characters are bidding for the rights to new invention… television.
Here’s the best of the programs… sort of MTV from the Harlem Renaissance. Enjoy!
So… what have we learned?
- In the 30s, marijuana was seen as energizing.
