    Some of the world's worst album covers (according to the author of the collection of these images, and it's hard to imagine much worse):

    For those who are unaware, Harris was a popular entertainer on British children's TV during the 1970s and '80s, who, in retirement many years later, was discovered to have been a prolific pedophile and sent to jail.

    The CDC has just released its interim report into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic:

    It's topping the bestseller list at the Barnes and Noble branch in downtown Wuhan, apparently.

    I bet this business is now wishing that it had called itself something else...

    My new AKA is:
    "The Masked Projectionist" LoL!

    ☞ Actually, this photo was taken in July of Y2k18, when San
    Francisco was blanketed with clouds of smoke & ash from a
    huge wildfire up north of The CIty. Not only was the air quality
    bad enough to require masks when outside, but the ash
    particles in the air were small enough that they were able to
    pass through the air conditioning filters. The day this picture
    was taken, you could see a visible 'fog' in the projection beam.
    (And it took quite a bit of work the following week to
    open up & clean out the equipment & replace all the filters)
    I'm glad I hung on to the extra face masks I bought back then,
    even though I really didn't think I'd ever need to use them again.)

    Here is an animated GIF of that hallway Marcel posted above. I downloaded it and did a quick animation to it.

    EDIT: Sadly this site does not seem to support animated GIFs.

    I came along this picture, which I wanted to call "Multiplex Dystopia". Long, empty hallways filled with nothing, leading to rooms, filled with mostly nothing.]
    Ah, the uninspiring utilitarian anti-charm of the multiplex.

    And Frank M -- all those abandoned projectors...as a one Professor Higgins would have said of that state of affairs, It's enough to make the angels weep. And I am.

    "Stop! Wait! That's an unprotected left!"

    Either that, or this could be an ad for the braking performance of Toyota trucks.

    An all time favorite. Figured the new board is a sign to stop lurking and start participating.

    There are many old theatres that have been saved by enthusiasts for the theatre organ. The old Towne Music Hall is an example of a theatre where the organ was implanted and both survive.

    When i was there last, they were using an RCA 16mm Carbon arc lighted projector. They lost the exciter lamp during the credits of the film they were showing. Too long ago to remember the title of the film. Got the sound back before the credits ended.

    What fun times.

    Christmas at the Olde Towne Music Hall Theatre, El Segundo, CA. 2014 Owner Bill Fields in the pic on the right of the console. He and his late partner Bill Coffman restored the Wurlitzer Pipe organ and Bill plays live during selected silent films. 20141207_133843.jpg

    Still wondering what movie is playing at the end of the hallway though...
