MUSIC FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE

I did a similar post last year on my other blog.  It was so enormously unpopular, that I've been inspired to do a sequel.

Just for the record (no pun intended, of course) all of these record albums are real. I couldn't make this stuff up.

Be forewarned: my comments are crude and caustic. I call them as I see them...

 No need to be alarmed -
it's probably an exaggeration

....and now he's doing hard time at Leavenworth.

Don't turn the lamp up too bright, Mattie - - that coiffeur will ignite like the Hindenburg. 

At first glance I thought it was Telly Savalas in drag

If they have confidence, there's hope for all of us.

Whatever you do, don't take your act to Detroit.

 Don't be too eager, Russ. I'm all booked up until some time in April.

Okay, it wasn't funny - but I tried.

....you'd be an old maid.


 I haven't seen hair like that since Mary Pickford was under contract with Biograph.

Did I misread this, or do I just have a dirty mind?

 Yea, and while you're at it - borrow another face.




 Sorry girls, but I don't see anyone using you in the extended future.

You're cruel, Jon, and I don't hear any laughter.

 If this doesn't inspire you, nothing will.




We don't pity you. We pity the record company that agreed to make this album.

 Barely alive - and fading fast.

Just one short of a trio 


It's Howdy Doody's "artistic" brother



Kiss me, Kincade, and that pie will be in your face.


What could possibly be worse than Kincade's kisses?


Jeff, you should always take a "Do Not Feed the Piranha" sign seriously.

We've got something that might belong to Jeff.

(I know, I'm completely ruthless - but I'm on a roll)



Nothing will sell a record album faster than a photo of an Oprah wannabe taking a dump.

Is this the end??
Heck, I'm just warming up.

GINGERBREAD

An assortment of fantastic gingerbread creations to brighten the holiday season. Unfortunately I don't have any sources for who created these or where they originated, but they're still a pleasure to behold.





 

















































Aw, heck - - we all make mistakes....

HADDON SUNDBLOM

Haddon Hubbard Sundblom (1899-1976) was a Finnish-American artist, widely known for his advertising work and illustrations. He is probably most famous for his many paintings for the Coca-Cola Company - - especially the holiday advertisements depicting Santa Claus. Sundblom was born in Michigan and studied at the Academy of Art in Chicago.

Here are some samples of his spectacular work.
