ASTROWORLD is nearing completion, yet still in progress. So, in the meantime, I thought perhaps I would post something here just to gather attention. Ladies and Gentlemen, without further adieu … an interesting assortment of random crap from the Internet, which I found to be interesting, curious, entertaining, or simply prosaically mesmerizing.
The Original Jurassic Park Gate on the Island of Kauai

If they make a third movie without Bill Murray, it has the validity of this.
When Harlan Ellison shows up at a barber shop … Interesting people surround him.

Magical, isn’t it ? I look at this and I have to wonder, why didn’t Steven Spielberg shoot those Venice scenes in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade like this ?
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have landed. Welcome to the Future.
