“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
Nostalgia day, I love it.My mother loved those commercials (we all did) and when she saw an ad Marlboro did for a set of Frederic Remington prints if you sent in $1.50, she ordered them and had them framed. It got her so interested in him, she read up on him and then went out and bought some more, also framed.Damn, I miss those.
Frederic Remington was an amazing sculptor, too - he was renowned for the accurate details in his work - Coming Through the Rye is a long time favorite of mine.
John Ford tried to recreate Remington's art in his photography in "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon."The costume design and set decorations and staging tried to mimic his style.One of my favorites.
Maybe Trump should (in the debates with Hillary) light up a Marlboro red, blow smoke in her face, and make her go into a coughing fit. Then later like up a Kool, and do the same thing, to win the black vote.
Tympani player must have had 4 or 5 tympani to play that tune - impressive. And without kettle drums, you got nuttin'!Prokofiev won't get any ad theme work until crack or meth are legalized.

Oddly, there is no rye in "coming through the rye." Just some wild @ss blokes on horseback shooting their guns off. They been drinking. Ob vee us ley. Oh. Now I get it. Rye. Just when I was thinking, man, they probably had some great bread back then. And I really was expecting rye. Exactly like wheat. 'Cept diff'ernt.
