Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

Myrna Loy

I will always post Myrna Loy. Is it okay to be in love with a dead woman? That didn’t sound nearly that creepy when I thought it.

No because many of us are in love with Gene Kelly so yeah.  Rock on with the actors/actresses you love.  :-D

If loving dead actors is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Happy Birthday Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff aka Doris Day 
April 3, 1924

"I like joy; I want to be joyous; I want to have fun on the set; I want to wear beautiful clothes and look pretty. I want to smile, and I want to make people laugh. And that’s all I want. I like it. I like being happy. I want to make others happy."

"Destination" — Nickel Creek

With a new album and a new tour, our friends Nickel Creek join us on the show this weekend!

For a blast from the past, check out their first APHC visit back in May 2000 (rebroadcast last summer).

Why aren’t there more notes? I think it’s fantastic that they are releasing a new album.

Animated artwork by Rebecca Mock

Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.

gamerchick02 replied to your post “I am a disgusting film fan. I’ve only just watched The Artist. ”

Did you like it?

I really did. It’s very charming and reminded me of Singing in the Rain and  the tragic story of John Gilbert. I wasn’t expecting to like it for some reason but I thought it very good. 

Yay!  I’m so glad you liked it.  Isn’t Jean dreamy?

My mom has my DVD; I think I’ll get her to watch it the next weekend I go home.  :)

He is VERY dreamy, his smile is delightful! 

OMG yes! I love his smile!  :)

Can I chime in on this one? I think both of you know what I would say :-P

Kevin Spacey in 1999.

I suppose it’s partly because Always Fair Weather and Gamerchick reblogged this, but I can’t help but think of those famous Alfred Eisenstaedt photos of Gene Kelly. Too bad Gene wasn’t given the chance to show off his arms like this. ;-)

I love this song.  Thank you for posting it.

I can’t keep my feet still whenever I listen to this one.

But there is a unwritten rule if im sitting in the same spot for 2 months, dont be a fuckboy and sit there. 

No really. I’ve contemplated murder for shit like this.

Um does it really matter? It’s just a seat?

Yeah, it matters to some. I realize it’s not a big deal for a lot of people, but like, that’s my seat. That’s where I feel comfy. I’m a creature of habit, and by stealing my seat, you’re ruining my happy spot. Not to mention it’s awkward as fuck to stare around going, “shit. where do i sit now?”

Yes.

Also some people sit where they sit because they can see and hear the professor the best in that specific location.

AMY! You’re such a goodie goodie :P I choose the very back, dark corner so as to stay out of the way of both prof and students, hahaha.

Hee.

I dunno how I missed this, but I did.

Anyway, I don’t blame you… in some classes I sat in the back middle.  :-P

I always chose near a window or the door, no matter if it meant I was near the instructor or not. It was more important being able to see outside or having a quick means of escape. I wasn’t particular about having the same chair each time.
