Overnight open thread – Misty Water-Colored Memories (genghis)

You know the drill by now:

Item #1: Stumbled across this while looking for something else (busty lesbians) today. Figured with summer approaching and whatnot it might be a good link so we could all feel nostalgic as well as really really old. It’s a site called Drive-Ins.com which surprisingly covers…Drive-Ins (Theaters, not restaurants, numbnuts. Learn to read my mind or go play in one of Gabe’s posts.) Now’s your chance to tell us in the comments below all about whatever warm and fuzzy/seedy and terrifying experiences you’ve had while visiting one of these vanishing pieces of Americana in the past. The site contains a lot of historical facts and stuff and supposedly has a database of 5000 former and existing drive-ins so you can go look up whatever drive-in you hung out at and were nearly abducted at as a kid.

Item#2: If you did manage to survive until puberty without being abducted at a drive-in theater, you probably went on to do much more productive things with your life. Such as hanging out at shopping malls. Sadly though, sometimes malls die and go off to mall heaven. But at DeadMalls you can read their obituaries along with accounts of those that are still pathetically clinging to life. (My own old haunt, Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City, is one of the latter. Used to be a pretty classy place, but now most of the anchor stores have abandoned it and it’s been overrun with gangs.) Now go send your condolences and thanks for all those good times you had wandering around in Victoria’s Secret and trying to hit on the cashier at Chick-Fil-A when you were a zit-festooned 14 year old.

Item #3 Let’s wrap it up with this Gizmodo article about the new speed record for jet-packs. (It’s a lot lower than you think).

More nostalgia below the fold in the form of a music video. Well, except for the fact that the “video” part is just a still shot. You’ll get over it I’m sure.

2 Open Blog, how did I miss that you're a fellow Okie? I remember hanging out at Crossroads. At Christmas, we'd drive up from Texas, and my mom, grandmother, and aunts, plus me, my two cousins, and my brother, would go and wonder around to look at the lights and eat Auntie Anne's pretzels. Kyle (cousin), Thomas (brother), and I would race up and down that big ramp they had.
When we moved back to OKC, we went there almost every weekend. I got my junior and senior prom dresses there.
I heard from my nana that it was heading downhill. It's hard to imagine that place without the Dillard's.

3 As Chris Rock said, every town has two malls. The one that the white people go to, and the one that the white people used to go to.

It's funny because it's true. And because Chris Rock said it. If I had said it on stage, there might have been trouble.

7 Around 1963 or so my parents took us four kids to a drive-in to The Day Of The Triffids. On our way home, with all of us kids asleep, Dad stopped at a truck stop for a cup of coffee. Alongside the building there was one of those tall (6 - 8 ft) dandelion type plants with the prickly needles which was well illuminated by the headlights of our car. Mom hollered "Kids, wake up - we're being attacked by Triffids!!" Other than making me go to a Catholic school for three years, that was the suckiest thing they ever did.

8 Weird site - I was expecting to see something like Escape for New York - and got a list of malls that need investment. Probably a safer home for your money then a union firm.

I was a kid in Pittsburgh back in 83 or so when the city basically shut down. There was a deadmall that was locked up; we got it an had some excellent urban combat training with our bb guns.

Open Blog, how did I miss that you're a fellow Okie?
Umm..."open blog" is just a category that those of us too lame to be "co-bloggers" post under. Screen name's genghis if you will.
But yeah, the whole food court area was pretty cool with the big pyramid skylights and those huge round yellow steel roof supports that splayed out like trees. And the ramp too.
Last time I looked at the DeadMalls site about Crossroads was maybe a year ago. I think Dillards has already left the bldg. Now the mall's about half abandonded and I think it said that several social services agencies (like an unemploymentoffice have moved in). Over the past 20 years or so the entire south side of OKC has practically become a barrio and is utterly riddled with Mexican gangs. Very violent place these days. Most of the shopping opportunities have moved south down I-35 into Moore, but even that city has been getting pretty dicey lately (Moore was where I grew up...well, lived, since I've never actually grown up.)

13 genghis, I wonder when Promenade here in Tulsa is going to suffer the same fate. It's right at the nexus of mid-town Hispanic neighborhoods and downtown black neighborhoods, which has led to some nasty gang fights and shootings. Two of the three multiplexes in Tulsa are right there at 41st and Yale, and so I've been there a couple of times over the past few years to see movies. The atmosphere is always ... nervous. Like people are ducking their heads and trying not to make eye contact.
It's a shame because it's a really pleasant location.
According to DeadMalls, the Macy's, Penney's, and Dillard's are gone. My grandmother said that the Sears is leaving or has already left in the last couple of months. It's a shame.

22 The Dead Malls site took me to a Wikipedia (!) article about one of my favorite dead malls, Cinderella City in Englewood Colorado. It was the largest covered mall west of the Mississippi for a very long time. It was huge, it had several different wings and the best part was "Cinder Alley" which was cobbled like a street, it had awesome shops down there.
Plus a "Round the Corner" restaurant. I used to love Round the Corner, with the telephones for ordering and the totally awesomely delicious burgers and fries. It was a chain, did any of you have them in other cities?
The mall is demolished now and Round the Corner is out of business. Sigh.

24 Another interesting thing is the jolt, even if temporary, a movie theatre will give a mall. When I lived in Tallahassee, Governor's Square Mall had the best, coolest movie theatre --for about six months. After that, Tallahassee Mall --a "third class" mall at best, had the theatre everyone flocked to and GS was largely forgotten. It was interesting, since otherwise GS was the far superior mall, and as for Tallahassee Mall, the theatre was the only reason to go there.

36 Tulsa is a pretty cool town. It's routinely the Most Average City in the U.S. We have a wealthy section, poor black, poor white, industrial, downtown, and middle class, etc. Marketing companies come here all the time to do surveys on new products or ad campaigns. Tulsa is a microcosm of the nation. There's one other city that occasionally vies for the title. Can't think of it right now. I think it's in Ohio.

Here's one financed in a public/private partnership via HUD with the city of Spokane newspaper tied to Chicago and to NYT via the Cowles family and the Sulzbergers. Old world royalty. stuck the bill on the city, while they skated clean. Now got a sweet deal bailing out the newspaper via 40% decrease in BO taxes courtesy dem Gov Gregoire--- who incidentally won via
ACORN fraud, over 4k votes... proven and indicted. Acorn, not Governor. Shame, that.

Newmarket North’s opening day was kicked off with events such as baseball player Ted Williams cutting the ceremonial ribbon with a baseball bat shaped axe, and country musician Roy Clark signing autographs. Local celebrities such as radio and television personality Dick Lamb and Miss Virginia were also there for the occasion. About 70-80 stores were open and ready for Newmarket’s opening day including some stores that were new to the area such as lingerie seller Fredrick’s of Hollywood, Hickory Farms of Ohio, and a devilish drink named Orange Julius . Included is a list from the March 25, 1975 edition of The Daily Press and the Times Herald.

96 When I was a kid the drive-ins used speaker boxes that you hooked to the window on the door.

The sound was tinny and filled with static. Some didn't work and you had to drive to a new spot.

My Dad let me lie down on the roof so I could see the screen.

Richards-Gebaur in KC is a classic example. It's being re-made into a big logoistics terminal, spearheaded by KC Southern. The only reason it hung on so long was that Truman favored it when returning to Missouri. As long as he was alive, so was the airfield.

102 The drive in movie in my hometown just showed porno on the wknds. The 18 year olds would sit in the front of the car and all us 15 16 year olds would be crammed in the trunk. You can actually get 5 or 6 normal sized kids in the trunk of a mid 70's model Mercury Marquis. One night we snuck in and it was spanish language porno night. Strange as it may sound, the fact that we didn't understand the dialogue did not detract from our viewing satisfaction.

How can anyone parallel Teh Enterprise's science officer; the dependably logical half-Vulcan with another mixed-race illogical icon: Barack Obama?
I'm not just talking about the ears. For those of us who watched the show in the 1960s (or during the countless reruns since), Nimoy's alter ego was the harbinger of a future in which logic would reign over emotion, and rational thought triumph over blind faith. He was a digital being in an analog world; the Pied Piper who led our generation into the Silicon Age.

If you're talking about the technical aspects though, the whole intermesh has seemed slow today. Also, we're supposed to be moving to the new site sometime over the weekend, according to the Big Guy.

It's obviously a NSFW site and probably a NSFH site as well, at least if the wife, girlfriend or inflatable sex toy is around.

182 1) I've never actually been to a drive-in theater, although they were stillsomewhat vibrant when I was growing up in the Denver area.(I'm almost 33) The oneacross the street from FitzsimmonsArmy Medical Center in Aurorasuffered a horrific murder right around my senior year--someone slashed the poor ticket taker's throat right in the damn booth. That effectively shut the drive-in down forever. The others shut down around the same time. There is only one more left in the Denver area, in Commerce City; the one in Sheridan near the old Cinderella City mall closed down last year.
2) That deadmalls site is surreal and depressing. Nearly every single mall in Colorado that is listed there I visited as a youngster. The Westminster Mall is going to end up on that site before too long, as it's the lot's been labeled as a blighted area by the city. If that happens, a major part of my childhood WILL go kaput--it's the first mall I remember visiting, and hanging out there was considered a standard weekend activity for anyone that lived in the northwest metro area between 1986 and 1995. Now it's basically a recruiting ground for Hispanic gang members and their various baby mommas.

194 I'm thinking about watching Rocky Balboa. And having a bowl of chili. I do my smoking overnight. I won't be pulling the brisket off until 10:00 am. About then, I'll start my chicken. (Imagine that sentence in a vacuum.) Sound like a plan?
Maybe I should call my old girlfriends, starting with the very first one, and then working my way...

202 And logprof, have a Russian Prince for me, our LCC

(Liquor Control Commission stores licensed to sell hardstuff in Canada, regulated
by each province, state powers, if you will, for y'all
Americans)

doesn't sell him anymore.

Though the most recent owners are doing a great job of running it, many fine selections of every variety, from wines to whiskeys. a recent fave is BB cognac, a spiced 40%er with a flavour reminiscent of Gran Marnier without the orange. It is fucking brilliant drunken neat.

Right now I've got Carling with Smirnoff water on the side...

drank a bunch last night, I'll try to have a couple less tonight...

though it is a long-weekend Saturday, and it is my patriotic duty to get drunk.

like most good Canadians are this weekend.

226 For some reason, my wife watched the "Weekend Update" segment of SNL last night. The two, um, anchors, whose names I don't know, spent about 5 minutes trashing Arizona State University for not giving Obama an honorary degree. I'm wondering about the timing, since it was not a rerun (they had "jokes" about Manny Ramirez) and the ASI thing is pretty much old news. Nothing mentioned about the upcoming notre Dame debacle.

Oh, and I was reminded why I never watch SNL anymore. I sent my wife to bed and confiscated the remote.

228 It's not supposed to be a sexy bra, Noah. It is supposed to hold everything in compactly, much like how Spanx has made a name for itself with its tummy-flattening biker shorts. It's also supposed to eliminate "unsightly back fat" so the website claims - not that I have any. I just love the name - "bra-llelujah". So ghey.

241 Youre too funny, PGIS. Yeah, I'm not really into sexy bras. If I were an A or B cup size, then maybe I could have fun with the demi-cups and frilly lace bras. I spend most days at a dance studio and so I need to be tightly locked into my bra. As it is, I wear a Le Mystere bra with a sports bra over that. Kind of hard to take ballet class if you're bouncing all over the place. My experience, anyway.

--Air Miles is a program that is in Canada --generically associated with multiple airlines/retailers for redemption and can be earned at the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission, Safeway, Shell, and other places. Liquore is ridiculously regulated/overpriced, so in lieu of offering discount prices (not allowed beyond tiny breaks), liquor brands offer promotions of bonus Air Miles instead.
Thus far, I have enough for a trip for two to Churchill to see the polar bears, with some extra.

371 They are using tax payer money to tear down an empty mall (that the CITY of Columbus took over in 1989) that was the 'rage' in 6 year ago. Then they are using tax payer monet to build a park. A park! The best art is the location, Downtown Columbus, Ohio. I guess Coleman thinks his budget isn't big enough, or the crime rate high enough. People were pissed, es. becuase they have sent millions trying to get people to come back to downtown. But, the voters knew less than Coleman, and they pushed it through.
Tax payer money to destroy jobs----the Dem. way!

This was back in the Time Before MST3K, when Nixon was teh RoXoR, and when teh intertubes was better known as DARPA, so my dad thought "Hell, here's a movie with 'Santa Claus' in the title, I'll take the kid" and off we went.

The movie scarred.me.

Scarred.Me.

Not my dad. The move. My dad drank a beer and I must have inhaled about three week's worth of second hand Borkum Riff. But that damn movie was nine kinds of Hell wrapped in Trauma for a young kid.

I didn't realize how much I hated that movie until I happened to click on the MST3K episode, saw the people in green make-up and I about curled up in a fetal ball on the floor.

377 Prior to building the Amstedam Mall, the city pretty much demolished most of the downtown area. I remember coming back from college and seeing the Tryon theater marquee which read "Welcome to Amsterdam plenty of free parking." The city, in its infinite wisdom, built the mall in the middle of Main Street(Route 5). City officials were actually surprised when someone drove a car through the doors.

379 April,
It just really pisses me off that the city took over CC, then never tried to make it relevant, or even just up date it. Now we are paying to tear it down and build a park. This, in the very same budget that Coleman said he'd have to lay off those new recruits (until stimulus). Plus, his idea of bringing more people downtown to live, is more condos. If there isn't some cool shops etc., what is the draw? A park?
I would think he would be much better off working to fix the drug and crime in Columbus.
I would just hat having my tax dollars go towards that idiot's budget and projects...............like a rail in Columbus.

383 Back in the mid-80s my first "real" (as in, I had a desk space in an office) job was for the shoe distributor for Jordan Marsh, and our warehouse was two blocks over from the Omni Mall in Miami. I used to go there every day to eat in the food court. Even at the height of its "glamour" there was alway an air of collapse about the place, probably because that neighborhood (just north of Overtown, one of Miami's suckiest crack neighborhoods) was so crappy. The old Miami Herald building was a couple of blocks over on the bay. Anyway, every year the mall got cruddier and less occupied. Finally my job moved to Ft. Lauderdale, and then Jordan Marsh went out of business, but by that time I had moved on to another job.

And so concludes another chapter of my glamorous life.

393 @390 So fox just said that the prez will address the controversy in his speech at Notre Dame.

Eh, he'll just spew some consensus fog over the crowd.

Something like: "we all believe in the sanctity of life" and "though I personally reject the choice of abortion" and "we must make sure that all children are wanted by (insert some spendthrift policy)"

When to be intellectually and morally honest, BO should say:
"hell no I don't care if someone kills their child in the womb" and "plunge scissors in the kid's head and suck out their brains minutes before their born? Me likey" and "your Catholic hospitals are goin' down, bitches in you don't provide abortion and "some kid survives an abortion, just throw'em in the closet to die painfully".

Somehow I have the feeling that won't be part of the speech.

Hopefully, the crowd won't fall for it, but you know they will.

Probably be some Axelturds in the crowd pretending to be Catholic to ooh and aww over BO's speech.

402 Here's Obama's latest spin this morning on the economy/deficit. Apparently the whole American political system is silly to oppose Obamacare, as it will reduce the deficit in the short term. Insuring 47 million folks on Govt HC, saves money? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

As for the "update" coming, who wants to guess it will be new figures, much worse figures, of what "would have been" without the stimulus, so as to show the stimulus did anything.



WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House's budget director says the
economy has almost bottomed out and the sense of economic free-fall is
over.














Peter Orszag (OR-zag) says that as the economy improves in the
months ahead, the nation's budget will run lower deficits. He also says
that the Obama administration's financial assumptions are going to be
updated because of higher-than-expected unemployment rates.The
budget director says President Barack Obama is committed to changes in
the health care system this year. Orszag says the president's plan to
provide health care to millions of uninsured Americans would not add to

403 Anyone know if the rumor that BO requested lots of seats at Notre Dme's graduation, is true?
Posted by: momma at May 17, 2009 11:17 AM
I doubt that's true. Most seats are given out weeks and even months ahead of time, and even Seniors are limited to a certain number. I can't imagine family being willing to give up seats even for The One...of course if they drank enough Kool-aid....

404 Hoan, wish you were up. Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You" is mucho easy. I learned that one in about five minutes. Nick Drake's "River Man" is another story. I could wing it with bar chords, but I want to play it right. Playing it right and singing it at the same time, right, is much harder than walking and chewing gum at the same time. Lots of 9ths and a funky rythym. I can do one or the other, but bringing them together is the hard part. I worked on it this morning until the meat was done.
Plus, this is one of those exceedingly rare times when my voice is cooperating. Completely. I wish I could figure out how to make it do that at will. I'll be back to croaking again by tomorrow. At least, that's the history of these things.
I scored on the brisket and chicken. Ooooh, baby! I done good.

The prez is going to be in the exact same hotel having a fund raiser. (wow not even in office 6 months and he's having fnd raisers?) Anyhoo, fox says they probably won't even see one another at all and it is purely coincidental but that their crackerjack reporters will be one the case. This totally made me laugh out loud. Yeah right fox, yeah right.

>>The site kept freezing u my computer last night.
momma,
If you're a Windows user, it pretty much goes without saying that you've encountered a frozen program before. Often these jammed apps get labeled with the dreaded "Not Responding" message and simply refuse to do anything, even close. Usually, the only solution is to open the task manager, find the appropriate process, and choose to close it. Fortunately, a quicker and easier way exists. You can create a desktop shortcut that will automatically close any "Not Responding" applications whenever you double-click the shortcut. Here's how to set it up -- it's really easy:
1. Right click while on your desktop and select "create a new shortcut."
2. Quotes included, enter the following as the location: taskkill.exe /f /fi "status eq not responding"

That's it. From here, you can change the icon to make it prettier, or even set a shortcut key if double-clicking is too much work for you. When you launch the shortcut, your computer will automatically identify and terminate any programs that the computer deems "Not Responding." This useful little trick works on Windows XP Pro (but not XP Home), all versions of Vista, and Windows 7, so give it a try and see if it doesn't make you feel like a hacker.

I googled it a found some blog my spy sweeper didn't like after about 15 secs. Anyway, it seemed like a leftie blog because it was making fun of TOTUS blog. So, I skipped over there, and there is mention of 250 seats, but maybe that is how the rumor started. Don't know. Never read TOTUS, so I have no clue.
But,do sites now have the ability to put spy cookies on your comp. a full half min. to minute after the site loads? This is the fifth or so time my spyware blocks out a site after I've been on.

416 The Tri-City drive in - Loma Linda Calif. holds a lot of memories. In high school with a pack of girls crammed into a toyota, drinking beer, and playing truth or dare during the movies. One of our favorite dares was a girl had to take her top and bra off and run around the car. Of course we would turn the headlights on when she was in front. You had to be fast to avoid the embarrassment.

Then the dates with a boy and steaming up those windows......almost sex sure was hot then.

New thread please. SOmeone, Anyone


Well, we could throw out some fresh troll/moby bait to liven things up. Lessee axelrod's probably monitoring healthcare. Hmmmmm........





Obama's socialized medicine is a fiscal nightmare. Everywhere in every nation socialized medicine has been adopted the cost have been 800% plus higher than estimated.

The quality of care will fall because the gov't can't afford to help everyone at the highest level. Thus, people like BO will do fine because they have insider influence. The rest of us will die earlier and more often due to poor/third world standard of care.

The BO's "insurance" scheme is a restricted payment plan that pits the doctor's family against his patients. In order to earn a living commensurate to the cost of educating himself and the overhead to run his office and provide a good living for his family, he/she will focus on those treatments/specialty areas that generate the most income. Thus, patient care become a secondary or tertiary concern.

418 I once got caught drinking in a drive-in, (I was a senior.) Owner called my dad because he knew who he was (cop) and my dad told the owner to put us to work for the evening. You don't want to know what we picked up once all the cars left. It didn't stop us from drinking, but it did teach us never to get caught again.

420 Interesting, fox is interviewing two students one of whom has a Viva Obama in yellow on his mortar board. Hate to say it but have heard lots of students speak this morning and this pro BO kid is highly inarticulate and doesn't have full possession of his facts yet, the female graduate that he is pitted against is on her game but in a soft spoken erudite way. wonder if he was the only kid fox could find who was willing to go on record?

424 PGIS, think the average american, because of the changes in the bankruptcy laws, has to pay their credit cards as well as their student loans. Dealbreaker had an article about how your student loans follow you all the way to the grave and I wondered if your heirs would have to pay off your student loans before they received their inheritance. In other words, do the loan providers have a sort of lein on your estate to make sure they get paid?

430 389 Logprof, calling the Tallahassee mall third-rate is overly kind. The place is a shithole. I only ever went there for the movie theater. Of course, Tallahassee itself as a whole is pretty downmarket (again, being kind), especially if your life doesn't orbit around FSU. I worked as a legislative staff attorney for three years and loved the work but, to be blunt, hated the town.

439 105, PGiS:
Sorry to get off-topic, but here goes:
It's very possible to despise the Narcissist more every day - I do. No surprise he calls the White house "my house," he thinks it's his for good. To stir my angst I just turned on FoxNews for a sec sure 'nuff, there he was, reading about we all gotta agree to disagree on abortion, his lofty goal being to reduce abortions. Right, that's why the first thing he did was restart Slick Willie's world wide abortion funding by U S taxpayers. If someone wants an abortion she can pay for it herself. How hard can it be to tell the guy she slept with he can either support a kid he doesn't want or pay for an abortion? Unless of course she forgot to ask his name before he said adios.

And before anyone jumps all over me, I object to taxes being used to fund abortions. What people do with their lives is their business - just accept responsbility for your decisions, good or bad. Hah! Novel notion that,eh?

On topic: San Luis Obispo, CA still has a single screen drive-in theater,
Late 40's early 50's, a backseat full of kids (not inventive enuff to use the trunk, I s'pose) ducked down on the floor so Ma Pa only had to buy 2 tickets eventually drive-ins just started letting kids in free. And in the 50's they wised up and started putting those tire slashing thingies in so ya coudn't sneak in the exit anymore. The reason there were so many bad speakers is because people kept driving off with the speaker still attached to the window.
Will not discuss how many movies I missed due to jumping in the back seat. Let's just say it was good to at least know the plot line in case parents asked about the movie.




Posted by: Sea Urchin at May 17, 2009 03:24 PM (4GKdK)

440 I'm a bit late, I know but I just love drive-ins so felt the need to respond.

I went to U of Ark. and there's a drive-in in Fayetteville that's still open and it shows second run pics. Basically a dollar theater in a parking lot. It used to be $5 a car, I think it's $9 a car now. We'd load my bronco down with folding chairs, college kids, pizza and drinks and have an awesome time. They use a radio station frequency so you just crank the sound and open the doors.

And the times I just went with a guy were even better. Came as close to public sex as I ever will. Nothing like making out in the bed of a pickup piled high with pillows and blankets. (sigh) Good times.

As for the Dead Malls, grew up in Anchorage, AK. Used to love the University Mall. Saw my first 'R' movie there as an underage, unaccompanied minor.
