SO MANY BOB FEEEELLLLSS
Audrey Hepburn with pet fawn “Pippin” in the supermarket, 1958
When Audrey was making her 1959 film Green Mansions, the animal trainer on the set suggested that she take her on-screen sidekick, a baby deer, home with her so that he would learn to follow her. Nicknamed ‘Ip’, the deer would cuddle Audrey and accompany her to the supermarket in Beverley Hills. (via Another Mag)
Happy birthday to this handsome guy, born 71 years ago today (1943). What would the film industry be without him.
"Portrait of Mrs. John Montresor" by John Singleton Copley, 1778, detail.
One of my favourite female portraits.
Bob Dylan and his son Jesse by Elliott Landy, 1968.
The results of an American buffalo hunt during Westward expansion. 1870.
What was the point of this? So that resistant aboriginal Americans be brought to their knees by killing their food source. Still blows my mind that this happened so recently in history.
Happy Birthday to Thomas Francis Meagher (pronounced “mar”), born 191 years ago today (1823). Meagher was born in Ireland, became an Irish Nationalist, was sent to prison in Tasmania, escaped from prison, came to America, studied law, joined the Union Army, became a general for the New York Fighting 69th (or the Irish Brigade), was a hero in the Battle of Antietam, moved west, became the governor of brand-new Montana Territory, where he lived in Virginia City, Montana’s first capitol…all before dying virtually a pauper and drowning in the Missouri River in Fort Benton. A controversial figure till the end, the mysteries surrounded his death still raises suspicions as his body was never recovered. I mean, as little known a historical figure as this guy is, someone really should make a movie out of his life. How about starring DDL.
*DISCLAIMER: not fact-checked, everything I have written down is from memories of Meager stories and books I read when I lived in Virginia City, MT…down the dirt road from the former “governors mansion”
At home with Harrison Ford, 1978
The only valid reason to time travel is to go back to the 1970’s and bang Harrison Ford. There is no other decent reason. Fuck historical events! No, fuck Harrison Ford.
