The Wunderkammer of the Mild Colonial Boy, Esq., a Reactionary Tory Gentleman, who armed only with a Steampowered Babbage Engine and Pure Intentions, wanders the Time Streams and Aetheric Plane gathering an Eccentric Hodgepodge of Curiousities, Frivolities, Whimsicalities and Nonsense.
Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
Greta Garbo, in my favorite of her dresses from the film Romance, 1930. It was for this film that she was nominated for her first Oscar— one of two nominations in the same year; for Romance and Anna Christie, respectively. Unfortunately, the award went to Norma Shearer for The Divorcee.
Did Norma deserve the award over 2 Garbo performances? I don’t feel she did, but I’m slightly biased.
she just looks so bad ass in this picture. like “yah, i’m a boss, and?”
