ALL {EYES} ON:

I came across the article completely at random.
With the New Year just in our midst, it has had me reflecting much on life, the passing of time, and the revolution we have been living in and witnessing around us.
The world has changed profoundly. So profoundly so, that many people are still being left in the dust of our sound barrier breaking world!
This photo story from cabel.me really illustrates that paper thin barrier between the {past}, {present}, and {future}. I was really impressed with the photographs, and fell in love with the story.

A story of “An incredible basement, a video-game-level basement, a set-decorator’s dream basement” in Portland, with a beautiful past hidden, yet so completely on the surface of today’s quickly evolving future.
So please CHECK IT OUT! Enjoy !!

Somewhere in Portland, there’s a very old building, and that very old building has a very, very old basement. An incredible basement, a video-game-level basement, a set-decorator’s dream basement.

And when you walk past the janitors office, with the wonderfully decked halls…

(You see that a lot of calculation was done right on the wall.)

(You see that World War I was front and center on everyone’s mind.)

(You wonder what was being tallied, and if it was better to win or lose.)

Music Minute: “Looking for Boys” by The Pin-Ups

Watch out boys, because here they come – The Pin-Ups are coming for you!! They don’t care if they’re short or tall, they have their bikinis on and are ready to enjoy some of famed summer heat!

This is a very rare gem, so it’s quite the blessing to have found this on Youtube to share! Technology. The world is your oyster! This one was caught by jaemel1 who has a great affinity for vintage videos from the 50s + 60s!

It was close to impossible to find even a picture of the elusive Pin-Ups, but was finally able to uncover a great photo of the freshly formed group in their home turf of Brooklyn, 1964!

Check out those pants, the shoes, the hair! The Pin-Ups obviously knew it takes a lot of attitude to rock.

Found this at DOO-WOP blog, where you can find a lot of other rare treats and treasures!

We know, you’re definitely going to enjoy!
