100 years have gone by since this thrill ride, “The Tickler,” in Cincinnati promised the experience would be “not as rough as last season.”

Black and WTF

12/16/2009

I was walking along the Internet today, when someone pointed me down a dark path that led to an excellent photo-site called Black and WTF, full of black and white pictures that have varying degrees of good, juicy WTF.  Some of them are from old movies, and shouldn’t really count, because the real gems are the ones that are slices of life from people doing strange things for reasons unknown.

And some are just charming and noteworthy for their candid goofiness.

Their biggest Hit!

Brando

I love this piece featured on The Selvedge Yard about Brando’s rented home in 1954.  Just check him out, enjoying himself like a normal person.

You know you've arrived in the 1950s when you own two record players.
