Music Monday: Just some songs about medicine to sooth your music soul:
And this pairing is so crazy that it works and I had to include this:
Hope everyone has a great Monday.
The Haight Street Art Gallery had a cool exhibit recently. It was called Jefferson Airplane to Starship. Jefferson Airplane was one of pioneer's of psychedelic rock in the 60's. They were formed in San Francisco is 1965. In 1974 former members of Jefferson Airplane Paul Kantner and Grace Slick started Jefferson Starship and that lasted until 1984 when Kantner left and the band became known as Starship and had some of its most commercial success. I focused mostly on the Jefferson Airplane posters as love the posters from the era:
The coolest thing was that they has some paintings by Grace Slick who retired from music in 1990 and became a painter:
This is my favorite because it goes on Jefferson Airplane's classic tune White Rabbit:
It was really cool seeing the history of a great San Francisco music group.
Ancestral Futurism is a series of murals at the Presidio Tunnel Tops Park in San Francisco. It is done by Favianna Rodriguez and it tries to show how nature and humans have been connected throughout history:
I think that they are super cool and it reminds me how connected we are with nature.
In Portland, there is a unique video store. It is called Movie Madness. It is a video rental shop and a film history museum:
|Movie prop from Mars Attacks
And they have some really cool and vintage stuff:
|Elizabeth Taylor's dress from A Place in the Sun
|Dee Wallace's cat costume from E.T.
|Peter Boyle's costume from Young Frankenstien
|Danny Kaye's costume from The Court Jester
|P.J. Soles costume from Rock and Roll High School
|This model was the Hotel Yukon from the Blade Runner also was used in Ghostbusters
|Dresses worn by Diane Keaton(L) and Talia Shire(R) from Godfather II
Movie Madness is so very cool and a must visit in Portland:
The Steel Bridge in Portland is only 211 feet long. The upper deck has cars and the light rail. The lower deck carries the railroad and bikes/pedestrian traffic. It was built in 1912 and is the second-oldest vertical lift bridge in North America. It connects the Rose Quarter with Old Town/Chinatown:
It was cool walking over the bridge and seeing the city from a different angle.
I haven't done this for minute. Here is a little Saturday of errands in my world. The soundtrack was 1st wave on the SiriusXM.
I started at Buffalo Wild Wings because I found a gift card in a drawer. Not a fan of the place but the tacos and the tater tots were good:
Then I headed to Grocery Outlet. Didn't get much but I stock up on the Propel Water and everyone needs a Star Wars oven mitten:
Then I went walked around the Niles district in Fremont for a little bit. Love seeing what is in the antique shops:
Had to stop and get some ice cream:
Found this in a antique store and had to buy it. Believe it or not, it still works:
With all the rains, the poppies are back. Sadly, with all the development in my area there are not too many poppy fields left. It was nice to see one and I had to pull over and take a pic of it:
And ended my day by going to Nick the Greek and getting a beef and lamb salad:
It was a good day for errands.
