National Police Gazette The National Police Gazette, often simply referred to as the Police Gazette, was an American newspaper founded in 1845 by two journalists, Enoch E. Camp and George Wilkes. The editor and proprietor from 1877 until his death in 1922 was Richard Kyle Fox, an immigrant from Ireland, who turned the publication into something close to a national institution. With its focus on lurid crime, sleaze, vice, and bimbos, it was a periodical commonly found in the nation's pool rooms, barber shops, and taverns. Its sexy illustrations and advertisements sometimes challenged the obscenity laws of the day. What really made the Police Gazette popular was its coverage of sports. No other newspaper in the United States covered sports to its extent--especially prize fighting. Published on pink paper, its coverage of major boxing events was so beloved by the public that often 300,000 issues were printed to satisfy demand following an important bout. The usual run was about 150,000 copies--easily enough to make it a gold mine for Fox. Fox started the tradition of awarding championship belts to boxers. Fox died in 1922 and the Great Depression hurt circulation considerably the following decade. Neverthelees the Police Gazette survived as a periodical in various forms until 1977.

Train Arrival 1895 If you bought a ticket to see the first-ever public exhibition of motion pictures, in a Parisian cafe in 1895, this is one of the short films you saw: The Arrival of A Train at La Ciotat. According to a popular urban legend, the audience apparently shrieked in horror when the train got closer, thinking it was coming through the screen at them.

The Sounds of My Childhood When I was only 3 yrs old we moved from a farmhouse in Trenton NJ to my Nonna's two story home in Brooklyn. She had a very old, but beautiful RCA Console Victrola with which she played music every day. This was such an experience for a child at that time. Opera, and Broadway musicals, my favorite became the original Broadway recording of South Pacific with Mary Martin and Ezio Pinza, and Nonna's favorite tenor, Enrico Caruso. Her music flowed through the house every day and even after all these years, I can just close my eyes and still hear it...a little bit scratchy, but a beautiful memory I don't think I'll ever forget. This song is Caruso singing La Donna e Mobile.

Try to Remember One of the most beautiful songs from the 1960's, from Broadway's 'The Fantasticks', which opened on May 3, 1960, and closed Jan 13, 2002, after 17,162 performances. This song, performed by the Brothers Four, was part of a PBS special on folk music. It reminds me of an era when The Brothers Four, The Lettermen and other groups would perform at coffee houses, winter canivals and university campuses.....Try To Remember!

Roy Orbison In Dreams 1963 "In Dreams" is a song composed and sung by American rock and roll performer, Roy Orbison. An operatic ballad of lost love, it was released as a 45rpm single on Monument Records in February 1963. The song's opening line refers to "A candy-colored clown they call the Sandman". The Sandman is a character in Hans Christian Andersen's children stories who brings sleep and dreams by sprinkling magic sand onto the sleeping. It became the title track on the album In Dreams, released July 1963, and also appears on his 1989 posthumous album A Black & White Night Live from the 1988 HBO television special. "In Dreams" was used famously in an infamous whorehouse scene in David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986). An effeminate drug dealer, played by Dean Stockwell, lip synchs the song at the insistence of a sadistic criminal played by Dennis Hopper. Later, Hopper's character utters the lines "In dreams I talk to you... in dreams you're MINE - all the time!" as he threatens Kyle Maclachlan's character. The song also appeared in and provided the title for Neil Jordan's 1999 psychological thriller In Dreams. If the structure of a standard pop song is ABABCAB (verse-chorus, verse-chorus, bridge, verse-chorus), then the structure of "In Dreams" is ABCDE: the lyrics "A candy-colored clown," "I close my eyes," "In dreams I walk with you," "But just before the dawn," and "It's too bad that all these things" all introduce sections of new musical material that are not repeated. In 1988, songwriters Will Jennings and Richard Kerr wrote a response to "In Dreams", called "In The Real World", which Orbison recorded for his 1989 album Mystery Girl. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine named "In Dreams" as one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time."
