Lost Mardi Gras 2007, originally uploaded by sturtle.

So kicking myself for not going! check out this amazing roll of film that someone found in front of their house (via [livejournal.com profile] cobaltgreen. Wonderfully enough I know some of the people pictured therein!

In sadder news, the American Dime Museum of Baltimore closed:

I visited there a few years ago and chatted with the owner about our friend in common Johnny Fox ,and his Freaktorium in the LES, which has also been closed for a while now.

I don't understand it! Don't people have a burning need to see dioramas of squirrels holding guns and riding alligators, like I do? And are willing to pay a modest fee to do so? What else are you going to do, go to the mall?!

Here are some old pix of my visit:





As you can tell, I am really upset about losing my chance to own these guys. I do think that my existing taxidermy collection (of 2 pieces) is weird enough to have earned a place in the dime museum.
