Film from NASA 1971 Apollo 15 Moon Mission found in drawer

Holy moonshot, Batman! Imagine you’re a professional photogapher and this happens to you:

I recently had the amazing opportunity to work with some very interesting historical media. A retired NASA engineer friend contacted me having found a box of photographic films in his desk drawer.  Turns out the box contained two partial rolls and several cut slides of 70mm film from the 1971 Apollo 15 mission!

All the Way with LBJ: The 1964 Presidential Election


All the Way with LBJ mines an extraordinarily rich but underutilized source – the full range of LBJ tapes – to analyze the 1964 presidential campaign and the political culture of the mid-1960s. The president achieved a smashing victory over a divided Republican Party, which initially considered Henry Cabot Lodge II, then U.S. ambassador to South Vietnam, before nominating Barry Goldwater, who used many of the themes that later worked for Republicans – a Southern strategy, portraying the Democrats as soft on defense, raising issues such as crime and personal ethics. Johnson countered with what he called a “frontlash” strategy, appealing to moderate and liberal GOP suburbanites, but he failed to create a new, permanent Democratic majority for the post-civil rights era. The work’s themes – the impact of race on the political process, the question of politicians’ personal and political ethics, and the tensions between politics and public policy – continue to resonate.

When you grow up, I want you to be…but as a kid

When you grow up, I want you to be…but as a kid

When you grow up...While a child

Honey, when you grow up I want you to be assertive, independent, and strong willed. But while you’re a kid, I want you to be passive, pliable, and obedient.

I suppose there’s a lot of truth to the mother’s words. Getting past that childhood message is tough. Parenting a child who possesses that adult attitude must also be a challenge 🙂
