WHY SO SHY, GUY??? Vintage Educational PSA {c. 1947}

 

If you’re what they call a shy guy…

There must have been a really urgent calling to help young men who suffered from social anxiety during the Post War period, because this is just one of dozens of educational films distributed to schools throughout America dealing with this.

This one is one of the best called “SHY GUY” and stars Dick York who played the first Darrin Stephens in the cult classic “Bewitched”!

Its quite entertaining, and on top of that, the classic vintage styles of these high school students are on fleek! Special shout out to the many wicked graphic sweaters that the “popular” kids are ALL rocking.

“Whats he got that makes people like him so much?”

attitude.

I think its best to be yourself, but this boy trades out his dapper suit and ties for the more relaxed cool kid vibe of some trousers and a graphic sweater, but sure enough it works, so what do I know?! So many cool jackets and bombers, and then there’s the classic hair!!!

They don’t make them like they used to! Enough hype, watch the video below courtesy of Old Time TV on Youtube!

BEST ADVICE FROM DAD: Just observe what people are doing then imitate them (well, essentially that’s what he says)….thanks Dad! Sociopath much?! As always, I say be yourself and the rest will follow.

“…you don’t know how to get people to like you and you end up holding a grudge against them…”

Life can be so hard for your average teen!

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: ROSWELL TURNS 66 !!!

Roswell-Sacramento-Bee-Article-July-8-1947

fake roswell alien

This is a still from what Ray Santilli claimed was film footage taken from the Roswell UFO incident depicting an alien autopsy. The film was released in 1995, but later revealed in 2006 as a hoax. Santilli maintains that it was a reconstruction of real events opposed to a fabrication. 

Today marks the 66th anniversary of the alleged crash of a flying saucer just outside Roswell, New Mexico.

This special date, and strangely special anniversary number (66 being a universal number of unconditional love, healing, and trust in the divine), are being celebrated by Google today in their daily Doodle.

It was a very frightening and exciting time, that has no doubt shaped and changed our society and culture forever. After several witnesses spotted seeing flying saucers over Roswell, New Mexico on July 8, 1947, suspicions were raised after Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut announced that a “flying disk” had been recovered on a ranch near Roswell in a press release. Witnesses at site also claim to have seen alien bodies.

These bodies are said to have been taken into top secret research laboratories where they were studied and stored away for future query. Also under question is the alien craft, which many suspect were taken in by the military, and used for their advanced technologies which helped jet us forward into the Space Age.

While the U.S. government has continued to deny the claims (an official 1997 report Case Closed: Final Report on the Roswell Crash attempted to close the case), millions of people still find truth in the dozens of witnesses who have come forward since, claiming to have seen the fragments of another world.

Since then flying saucers and aliens like those described by witnesses have flooded public consciousness and become a mainstay of popular society. And while the government might deny the existence of aliens at Roswell, they sure were interested in the existence of U.F.O.’s, which they documented heavily in the files of Project Blue Book which was shut down in January 1970, and  is now open to public inspection.

We might never know in our lifetime, but the way things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if we did!

Fingers crossed.

MUSIC MINUTE {Birthday Edition}: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID BOWIE!

David Bowie 1963

It’s hard to believe that the Starman is 66 years old today (That’s one 6 away from being the Antichrist – powerful stuff . . .)! Not too many seniors look as god damn good as this odd fellow – it’s hard to believe he’s a day over 30, still.

If looks could kill, there would be a lot of people dead from Bowie’s one-of-a-kind style sensibilities he rocked throughout the 60s and 70s; embracing androgyny and flashing it up to the max. And yet, his way has become a sort of classic in our day and age, and you can still look back and aspire to his flamboyant elegance . . .

Bowie has released a brand new single today, as well, entitled “Where Are We Now?” (good question), but in true Eye of Faith style I think we need to take it back a little and celebrate Bowie in all his Glamour Glory!

Please enjoy . . .

“I don’t know where I am going from here, but I can promise it won’t be boring.”

-David Bowie.

Sincerely,

Magic Movie Moments: Powell + Pressburger’s “Black Narcissus”

+

“I don’t want to go away. I want to stay here like this for the rest of my life…”

+

Michael Powell + Emeric Pressburger’s 1947 film Black Narcissus is crammed full of magic movie moments – moments unlike any other you are bound to see in any other film.

Moments where you would swear, instead of a movie, you might actually have stumbled upon an epic painting come to life, or perhaps you caught yourself awake in a dream.

The film is set high in the cliffs of the Himalayan mountains where a group of five nuns have sequestered themselves to begin an order in this strange new land. Nothing ever seems to go quite as planned for these seeker’s of God who exhibit more than their true colors in their time spent trying to maintain and repair their adapted home.

It is a story of human will and sacrifice (as most stories with nuns are), as well as examining the cultures of Christianity, and Western beliefs and attitudes. The film also explores spirituality (as most stories with nus do) to a large extent, and the various ways in which almost supernatural forces come to play in our daily lives.

Despite being over 60 years old, the film’s unconventional themes and characters carry it straight into the 21st Century and beyond. In fact, we’d be very lucky to receive a film with as much intellect, suspense, and overall beauty in this day and age…Powell + Pressburger never ceases to impress me, but there definitely is an undeniable touch of magic and mystery that make this film an absolute great.

Jack Cardiff’s dynamic cinematography is definitely a major contributing factor to the film’s devastating beauty. Like a canvas, Cardiff paints every frame with an attention to detail only a true artist could bring, upping the ante for the film altogether. As much as the light paints the scene, Cardiff uses shadow and color to exquisite effect.

“There’s something in the atmosphere that makes everything exaggerated…”

+

Enjoy this clip of the film’s epic climax if you dare…and don’t be afraid of the haunted feeling you may achieve. It’s actually quite refreshing.

We were lucky enough to catch this on TCM‘s queue of timeless and obscure movie classics, but you can also find Powell + Pressburger’s Black Narcissus available on DVD & Blu-Ray through the Criterion Collection packed full of amazing extras. Check it out today.
