judging by his scowl I don't think he'll be signing up to this site in 20 years time!
the school's concern was due to the fact that 11 year olds would be in the audience and ru paul's drag race is not considered family friendly in the uk.

still, the kid got some free publicity and is getting to do his act at some alternative adult venues

Personally I think he came across as a spoilt brat and I wouldn't waste my cash on a ticket!

I knew the car wasn't air conditioned when the train pulled in as there were a lot of seats available. I've certainly been on the subway when it's been worse; when I was a kid the only thing that would stir a breeze, if you could call it that, on the subway were overhead fans which moved very slowly. We were lucky in that although it was rush hour we were heading in the opposite direction on the way home, going back downtown. I commuted for a year in the City and rush hour was not fun. Very glad I only had to deal with it for a short time. And I'm equally glad that I'm retired now and don't have to deal with the commute into the City which just got much worse due to construction on the helix into the Lincoln Tunnel.

I almost forgot about those Addams cartoons. They used to re-run them in our local paper & Mad Magazine just about the time the TV show first aired. I loved the cartoons & the TV show as a kid. I have the entire series & still watch a few occasionally. I thought they were a lot more fun, & way cooler than their competition, the Munsters, & they even liked to play with toy trains.

I even enjoyed their movies too. We're still running the 2 movies in our movie section (only visible to members) in HD. They're in the "Fun, adventure, drama, & documentaries" thread down there.

The Munster movies were not nearly as good.

Here's the very first episode of the Addams Family. I have the series in DVD quality but for here for public use, I made a highly compressed VHS quality version to save on space & bandwidth. Maybe I'll run the DVD version of the series in our private viewing area for Halloween again.

Addams Family - Episode 1
VHS quality (highly compressed but looks OK on smaller screens), 35mb, 26 minutes.

You can read more about them here:

it wasn’t stiflingly hot although both rides on the subway were in non-air conditioned cars

That must have smelled interesting. In my town, I always got stuck on a bus with no AC, with windows that don't open. What are they thinking by putting something like that on the road in 85F-90F heat? At least send one that has windows that can actually open.

Now they all have tinted windows that don't open. So if it's dark outside, which is any time after 4pm in the winter, with the lighting on inside the bus, you can't see outside to see if you're stop is coming up unless you stand right in the front window next to the driver.

Hello everybody and welcome back to My Weekly Flickr.

This week I had a special treat as I finally got to visit the Morris Jumel mansion, which is in upper Manhattan, for an exhibition of Charles Addams cartoons. I first heard about the exhibit in January and had already planned the trip when luckily I discovered that the mansion was closed due to plumbing issues and wasn’t scheduled to reopen until mid to end February. Well, that extended a number of times until it finally did actually open in July. Luckily they were able to keep getting extensions on exhibiting the Addams cartoons.

Charles Addams was an American cartoonist and illustrator who drew humorously macabre cartoons the bulk of which appeared in The New Yorker magazine. He came to have a cast of characters that appeared in the cartoons although they were never identified by name until a television show was aired in the early sixties based on the characters. My first introduction to him was as a child when I would go to the Fordham library in the Bronx and go through the bound volumes of magazines, Life, Time and the New Yorker. At that age the only thing in the New Yorker that interested me were the cartoons, I was put off by all the words and lack of photos and illustrations. Of course as an adult I’ve been reading it for more than 40 years while also acquiring a number of bound volumes from every decade it’s been published which started in the 20’s. I firmly believe it’s the best American magazine published.

I took a friend and we went in the afternoon as I knew I would take her to dinner and I didn’t want to do that too early. I planned on arriving at the museum around 2:30PM but it took a little longer to get there than planned. We took the #1 train which for some reason is even noisier than the C or the A and there were times I had to pause our conversation because never mind hearing what my friend was saying, I couldn’t hear myself. As we were approaching 157th Street it quieted down a little so I continued speaking and got distracted and we missed the stop. The stop we actually wanted was the next one but the station is closed so we had to continue on to 168th Street and then take the train back. If I was alone I would have just walked but my friend is not in great shape and she could not walk that far. As it was the seven block walk to the mansion was a lot for her. To be fair they are very long blocks. She walks very slowly and I have to put the brakes on when I walk with her as I always walk at a brisk pace.

I wasn’t concerned about the time until we got to the museum and they had the hours posted. Somehow I had misread them on the website and the museum is only open until 5PM on the weekend, during the week it closes at 4PM. As we got there at 3:04PM I was annoyed as I wasn’t sure we would be able to see everything. But it wasn’t a problem, the period rooms weren’t really anything special so it was just the exhibit and it was a small one. But it was really wonderful, a very good selection of his cartoons, a number of which made me laugh out loud.

The weather cooperated, for the most part we avoided the rain and it wasn’t stiflingly hot although both rides on the subway were in non-air conditioned cars. We had a nice dinner in the diner on Ninth avenue and then when we got home to her house we ate the devil’s food cake I baked. She had a lovely time and so did I and I was happy to have given her a day out. None of the cartoons are on the museum website so I had to write down the titles and look for them on the web. Here’s a nice selection.   

Subway Hand – The link is to a page with many of his cartoons, Subway Hand is the first one, at the top left.

Atomic Laboratories – At this link, it’s the last cartoon on the page.

Automat – On this page there’s also an essay on Addams. The cartoon is the first in a slide show.

Please Do Not Feed The Squirrels

"At the bottom of the steps, turn right. The meter is on the far wall."

Planetarium - This is a series of 8. It was the first one in the show and the first one that made me laugh out loud even though I had seen it previously.

Chartered Bus – This is the whole Addams family together.

The kids still believe in Santa Claus

Suddenly I have this dreadful urge to be merry

I really could keep going as everything in the exhibit was worthwhile, as my brother said, he really was a genius. I’ve seen a number of exhibits over the years and all of them were wonderful. The main branch of the New York Public Library had an ongoing, rotating selection of his work a number of years ago and I made it a point to see each rotation.

This is a link to the Sotheby’s website with a very nice video and essay on Van Gogh’s bedroom painting.

And now let’s visit the Flickrs.
