tRS-WS #61 - Frank Sinatra - May 2012
“[I shot] Sinatra literally in the position of Christ nailed to the cross. He choreographed it himself. This was a personal gag created for Mervyn Leroy, a director he had contempt for. He sent it along with a note that said, “O.K., you now have me where you want me. Frank.” -Phil Stern
I found this interesting story and photo on Chasing Light by Doug Kim.
tRS-WS #60 - Willie Nelson - May 2012
I’ve been listening to a lot of Willie Nelson again lately…such a great songwriter!
tRS-WS #59 - Duck Dynasty - April 2012 @williebosshog
Had to make an image for my new favorite show.
Great little write up explaining some of the backstory here:
and this exists too:
tRS-WS #58 - Robert Capa - April 2012
War photographers amaze me. How does one hold the camera still and frame a shot when bullets are flying at them?
Today’s image pays tribute to Robert Capa, Magnum cofounder and amazing war photographer.
Read about the man who died with a camera in his hand:
tRS-WS #57 - Bogart-Bacall Syndrome - April 2012
I found this great photograph of Humphrey Bogart and decided to do an image in my web series about him. I’ve seen a lot of great Bogart films so he was a natural choice. As i started to do my homework (by reading his wikipedia entry) I ran across a “see also” called ” Bogart–Bacall Syndrome.” To my surprise it had nothing to do with an older man marrying an younger woman :)
Bogart–Bacall Syndrome is “a voice disorder that is caused by abuse or overuse of the vocal cords.”

tRS-WS #55, 55b, 55c - Back In the NBA #3: Manute Bol “My Bad” - April 2012
(3 imgs today, I couldn’t help myself)
I don’t remember seeing very many games in the 80s, but on occasion I would catch a game at my grandparents’s house. There are some moments that stick out. The Purdue Boilermakers winning the 1988 Big Ten Title, the Chicago bears winning the 1985 Superbowl and seeing Manute Bol play for the Washington Bullets. I don’t know how well he played or how well the team did, only that they were wearing the jerseys with the large horizontal stripes and Manute was tall and thin as a rail, like nothing i had seen before.
Here’s a great youtube video highlighting a particular good playoff game for Manute, 11 block shots!
Manute Bol’s (11blks) First Playoffs Game (1986):
Maybe not so little known fact?:
“”My bad” is an American idiom that was made popular by Manute Bol although it was also used before his arrival in the USA.” - wikipedia
tRS-WS #55 - The Lively Morgue - April 2012 (photo by: Neal Boenzi)
The Lively Morgue has to be one of my favorite new tumblogs out there. The New York Times has a massive archive of stuff it’s great to see some of it surface on the web. Also, I enjoy seeing the photograph as a historical record AND an artifact. h/t: Spiffae
