I know it's been a bit quiet around here.
Been taking care of the Keek all week. A pure pleasure, and completely exhausting!
There have been a few additions to the Hallowe'enly decor around the ol' S&P, and I think I should point out these two.
An advertisement for Edison's revolutionary (get it?) phonograph.
Plus Hallowe'en. Too neat.
And then there's this gift from a friend:
Incredible imagery! Sheet music for a 1922 novelty tune by Nacio Herb Brown.
Brown was a legendary songwriter who composed (wholly and in collaboration) some very well-known tunes -- Singin' in the Rain, All I Do is Dream of You, Broadway Melody, You Stepped Out of a Dream, Make 'Em Laugh, Broadway Rhythm, You Are My Lucky Star -- and many, many others.
Perhaps I am overimpressed, but this is just an astonishing image to me. From the bizarre title graphic to the whatever-the-heck-it-is just below the li'l devil guy (I'm guessing, oh, The Sneak?!?), to the color choices, to the single eye in the tree... it's just a beaut!
Just a few looks at some neat things acquired since I last posted.
They are now, of course, a permanent part of the Skull & Pumpkin.
