Vintage Philosophy

"Do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of."

“Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye with nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence, and nothing else.”

—   Ralph Waldo Emerson (via wildexpeditions)

There were always golden rocks to throw
At those who, those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

Happy Birthday Harold Clayton Lloyd, Sr. 
April 20, 1893 - March 8, 1971

"Harold Lloyd was one of the most charismatic innovators of film comedy, an excellent actor, and a consummate filmmaker." - Jack Lemmon

Harold Lloyd was, and remains, one of the most iconic figures in film history. His films influenced genres, styles and techniques that are still very much alive today. His comedic genius and timing redefined the genre of film comedy, and gave life to many sub-genres including the romantic comedy, the college comedy and the football movie. Character minded, and technically adept, his films were filled with joy, heartbreak, action, social comment, stunts and most of all the roaring spirit of the 1920s. They are still as endearing and hilarious today as they were when they came out, over 80 years ago. Lloyd was truly a genius, operating at the same level as his contemporaries, Chaplin and Keaton, and offered an alternative to the ‘grotesque’ comedy character. Lloyd’s Glass character was the boy-next-door, the average american go-getter, a character so normal that anyone could identify with him. He was The Boy. 

Lloyd’s legacy has been criminally underrepresented in the annals of film history, and it’s about time he made a return to public consciousness. He was so much more than a pair of glasses. He was the living embodiment of the spirit of 1920s America, and truly a master of cinema.

In 1932, Dr. Archibald Purves from England designed the Dynasphere.  He believed that one huge wheel encompassing five passengers was far more efficient than a car with four wheels.  The biggest issue was that it steered quite poorly.  (via)
