    My Mom tells this great story about when they vacationed down in New Orleans in the '60's and they were walking down the street and coming up the street was a truck or car pulling a trailer with some guys on the back. A crowd was forming behind the trailer and the guys were playing Jazz on the trailer. As it pulled up in front of this club they kept playing and got off the trailer and walked into the club and the crowd and my Mom and Dad followed them in. It was The Great Satchmo! They set right in front and saw him inches from them play his horn! WOW! Talk about being at the right place at the right time!

    There used to be two or three of these here on the Columbia River. I remember how COOL it was to see them drive down the boat launch and just motor on down the river. There was a D.U.K.W. here too and someone has a restored on that runs around here now.

    Image THANKS to MagazineArt.org!


    At first, I was a little surprised to see this August 1923 cover depicting an astronaut, complete
    with helmet. Then I remembered Frenchman George Melies' wildly popular 1902 movie, "A
    Trip to the Moon," loosely based on Jules Verne's "From the Earth to the Moon" and H.G. Wells'
    "The First Men in the Moon." Melies was actually a pro magician and inventor, but he quickly
    saw cinematic possibilities incorporating magic and "camera tricks." Fanciful though it was,
    Melies' film was really a satire, poking fun at science and the stuffy scientific establishment!
    YOU can clearly see this if you review a copy of the movie, complete with its originally ending
    -- thought lost until only about a decade ago! The movie has been meticulously restored, in
    both its original black-and-white and hand-colorized versions. Wow! Here's a 110-year-old
    movie that still passes my first test of a "good" flick: It's entertaining!

    "A Trip to the Moon" was and is Melies' best known and most popular movie, though he made
    little money on the movie's U.S. circulation. Why? Most of the prints shown in the U.S. were
    pirated by Thomas Edison's technicians. International copyright law was a shakey affair in
    1902, so Edison was not compelled to pay Melies for his work. Though Melies continued to
    make movies for years, his visual compositions consisted mostly of stiffly edited, static single
    scenes, usually lacking even close-ups. Not surprisingly, more progressive film techniques --
    including editing together multiple shots and camera angles to build scenes -- helped the
    likes of D.W. Griffith, and even Edison himself, to great progress and financial success, while
    Melies' studio eventually went out of business. But, arguably the first to use special effects
    and animation in movies, Melies will always be the CREATEUR du SPECTACLE CINEMATO-
    GRAPHIQUE!
