INSTAGRAM FAILS TO DELIVER & SO DOES CHRONICLE!

Instead of a newspaper vending machine, we have a casino & the house always wins.  INSTAGRAM seems to take exception to public service announcements.  So, here is yet another attempt to warn people not to lose their money with a rigged machine.

Instead of a newspaper vending machine, we have a casino & the house always wins. INSTAGRAM seems to take exception to public service announcements. So, here is yet another attempt to warn people not to lose their money with a rigged machine.

YESTERDAY, I TRIED TO USE THIS ‘VENDING’ MACHINE TO BUY AN EXTRA COPY OF THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. MY INTENTION WAS TO OBTAIN AN EXTRA COPY TO SEND TO MY BROTHER & HIS WIFE IN PHOENIX. I THOUGHT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THIS. THE MACHINE ATE FOUR QUARTERS, BUT THE DOOR TO IT WOULD NOT OPEN, IT YIELDED NAUGHT.

I CALLED THE MAIN SWITCHBOARD NUMBER OF THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, AND LEFT A MESSAGE. THE NUMBER THAT I CALLED, 415-777-1111.

I TRIED TO POST A COPY OF THIS MACHINE WITH A DESCRIPTION OF WHAT HAPPENED ON INSTAGRAM, AFTER GIVING THE NEWSPAPER A FAIR AMOUNT OF TIME TO RESPOND. IT SEEMS THAT INSTAGRAM CENSORED MY PHOTOGRAPH & COMMENTS. THE COMMENTS WERE FACTUAL, NOT A WORD OF IMPROPER OR ABUSIVE LANGUAGE. IT SEEMS THAT IT’S TOO WEIRD OF AN EVENT TO BE MERE CHANCE, BUT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

THE MACHINE TO AVOID IS LOCATED NEAR THE CORNER OF HOWARD & 9th STREETS. THE SIMPLEST SOLUTION FOR THOSE WHO FREQUENT THAT AREA IS TO BUY THEIR COPY OF THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE IN A CONVENIENCE STORE. IT IS CLEAR THAT THE MACHINES ARE NOT HONESTLY OPERATED.

I DO REMEMBER A FEW YEARS AGO SEEING SOMEONE TAKE A SMALL METAL OBJECT & EMPTY THE MACHINE THAT WAS IN THAT SAME LOCATION OF IT’S MONEY. ‘TIS A SHAME, BUT THEY DON’T RETURN CALLS, SO CUSTOMER SERVICE IS CLEARLY NOT A VALUE.

AND THE FAILURE OF INSTAGRAM IS JUST PLAIN BEWILDERING. I THOUGHT IT WAS FOR INSTANT SHARING OF IDEAS, NEWS, ETC.

Captain Spaulding Look-alike Ranks Up Ladder of Success!

Now Captain Spaulding, like his counterpart, Princess Melita Bonaparte, is taking over America–He is just like a stealth bomb–wants all the tax money & none of the bother. “I don’t want to have to work for a living, I don’t go ’round putting rubber chemicals in bread, and I don’t take dogs inside of restaurants, hospitals, or welfare agencies, so why shouldn’t I get all the money & fame I want?” He pouts like this all the time, and the best thing is just to run the opposite direction when you see him posing in front of pre-dumpster disposal art. But look how wonderful those doomed displays are! That must be part of the poetry of pre-Dumpster detritus. It’s splendid one day & rotting in AMC Dumpsters the very next day! Captain Spaulding is joining forces with Princess Melita Bonaparte in an effort to protect this highly dismissed & unprotected legacy of our culture.

“I just want Paramount to stop calling me about my car. I don’t have a car. Put me in a blockbuster film, and everyone will be happy as a foot long Subway sandwich!”

If only Captain Spaulding would stop digressing & write a dissertation about this art work not being taken seriously by the film industry, maybe he’d get a trip to Stockholm out of the deal, and Princess Melita Bonaparte would get her grave back & she could haunt it happily ever after.

We just have to clam up on that one. It looks as if someone glued a Subway Footlong on Captain Spaulding’s head & he didn’t get it. Poor thing!

If you can’t get Captain Spaulding’s look-alike out of your mind, contact Paramount Studios. Tell them to bring back the Studio System, give him a ten picture contract & all will be well with the world.

A VOTE FOR CAPTAIN SPAULDING LOOK-ALIKE IS A VOTE FOR AMERICA!

This Captain Spaulding look-alike may creep you out, but he is the hope of America & for a world United against taking cinema promotional art & sticking in into a dumpster.  "No more Dumpster Babies made of cardboard," he implores.  Call Paramount-put me in pictures!"

CAPTAIN SPAULDING IS MORE THAN A CARDBOARD DECORATION WAITING TO BE DUMPED!

Can you help Captain Spaulding stand up for Film Promotional Art?  Can you keep him from ending in the Dumpster @ 1000 Van Ness Avenue?  Can  film promotional art be saved?  Maybe the Greek Monarchy can help us?

Pray For All Marked Souls That They May Be Spared!

It is greatly feared that, 2013, a year of physical attacks upon the Imperial Princess, is just the beginning of a series of Paranormal activities to prevent her from her attempt to help Restore the Greek Monarchy.  Pray for her, that she may not be a Marked Soul!

Today, this first day of a New Year, 2014, pray for Her Imperial Highness, The Princess Melita Bonaparte. It is feared that she may be a MARKED SOUL. Two photographs, and a statuette, all of her likeness were left with flowers @ this gravesite, inside the AMC 14 Van Ness Avenue. Please pray for her that no harm may come to her. Pray that she may continue to live to serve others.

What we fear most is the leaving of flowers @ this gravesite. Someone wishes her dead! She has survived a recent attack from a trained elephant, and literally on Christmas Day, the Christmas Rabbit came from out of nowhere, and attempted to kill her. Now, these flowers, beautiful as they are, fill our hearts with fear. Are they a warning sign that she is to be marked, A MARKED SOUL?

She was promised by no less that the Orthodox Metropolitan of the North Pole that her efforts to establish world unity under her benevolent rule would be met with complete joy--but now that joy turns to fear!

They Change The Order, Uninstall the code that you originally install, then try to tell you that the code had already been used, and can only be used one time. This is el Toro ca-ca! No one should be allowed to get away with stuff of this nature, it is called bad business! Period! Are you kidding me? This is like a store taking your wallet when handing out a free sample. It is so incredibly short sighted. They train their chat people to disconnect people like me from their useless chat line. They don’t allow you enough time to say much of anything, then cut you off…I gave the last one all the information needed, and she deliberately misspelled my name….calling me Thomas Ourr. That was a clever responsibility avoidance mechanism. Actually, not clever, very stupid and senseless. Why not honour the coupon? That would be too much like right!

This is a total breach of law, ethics, good business practise, and there MUST be laws somehow, somewhere that govern Internet practises. After working for hours & hours & hours to ‘get it right,” positioning the photographs that I wanted, putting in the text that I wished to use, they disconnect the whole thing, trying (1) to sell me a book size larger than the one that I ordered, then (2) to tell me that the code had already been used.

Who used my unique code??? Did Santa Clause take a Float Day and drive down here to use my code? This is a lie, a bare-assed lie, and this company has no business being allowed on the Internet!

Now, they are asking for a 16 digit code and the code issued @ Safeway only has 12 digits! This is illegal!

Will Princess Melita Bonaparte ever be cast as Young Edith Beale?

Young Edith Beale never got very far from Old Edith Beale for very long during her entire life. Grey Gardens became the breeding ground of a relationship from which neither mother nor daughter could emerge either as vanquished or victorious. Their home took on a sort of Sunset Boulevard-Long Island significance. The more they deteriorated & turned inward, the more the 28-room mansion took on aspects of their eccentric lives. The static nature of things, the hold that “Big” Edith had over “Little Edith” is one of the strangest mother-daughter rivalry, love-hate, respect-revulsion relationships ever to have been so extensively recorded in modern times. It has some echoes of Joan & Christina Crawford, a rivalry, but without the viciousness. The Beales were to the manor born. For them, work was a concept about as foreign as inconspicuous consumption was to Joan Crawford. The Beales, socially speaking, had nothing to prove, whereas Joan Crawford had to prove her self-worth with every move she made every moment of every day. The Beales simply let things take their course, without creating schedules or attempting to craft identities based upon ambition. In this respect, the two households were polar opposites. The Beales were charming in a crazed way, while the Crawfords kept busy with axes, either frantically using them in the garden, or grinding them for recorded history. The House of Crawford was wax, cold & brittle. The House of Beale, just needed some repairs, but their was love was within the dilapidation, sometimes crazy, but always genuine.

Had they not been related to the once-ubiquitous Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, it’s likely that they would have become anonymous wards of the New York. In 1975, their static status was forever changed. Newspapers (this was before digital Social Media) headlined stories that outlined the grim & grotesque squalour into which their dysfunction had plunged them. Nearby residents took the matter of the filth & stench emanating from the mansion to the local Public Health Department & the Maysles Brothers, following their instinct, knew they had discovered a unique story, if they could obtain the permission & co-operation of the women Beale. With their simple documentary, going in-depth behind the news headlines, the Maysles unintentionally became the architects of a new set of anti-hero in American urban-celebrity folklore: The Edith Beales of their masterpiece: Grey Gardens.

Considering the squalour in which they lived, the documentary was amazing in terms of costumes. They had more costume changes than Diana Ross does in her one hour & fifteen minutes of over-priced concerts. At least Grey Gardens does give you some bang for your fashion dollar– in ways that only Young Edith Beale could have imagined. It’s just possible these might have inspired Martha Stewart somewhere along in her career of making practical fashion from the least likely sources. Truly, Young Edith was not really in a time warp, she simply was ahead of the times, by choosing the path least taken. And that has made all the difference, don’t you think?

How To Get A Royal Runaway Elected As Detroit’s Mayor-Del Shannon

When Her Imperial Highness was in the 4th grade, staring out the window, not paying strict attention to her Latin instruction, she dreamed about running away from The Tatoi Palace to Detroit. She wanted something different, she wanted something Supreme! She had not yet met Miss Ross.

Here was her dream: Del Shannon, The Runaway–the dream of Princess Melita Bonaparte, before she matured & Imperial thoughts entered her mind.

Her Imperial Highness, The Princess Melita Bonaparte, looking for work as a model, no computer skills, did not even know how to wait tables in restaurants, or do the fries in fast food joints. All she wanted was Detroit!

"If the telling of my life is a novel, then it will be a bestseller," proclaims Princess Melita Bonaparte.

SHE BEGGED THE DE YOUNG MUSEUM TO FEATURE HER AS PART OF THE GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING PUBLICITY MACHINE, BUT WAS DEEMED TOO MUCH A LIABILITY–“More Suitable for eye-level supermarket reading,” sniffed one high-ranking board member.

“I know I can bring back Detroit, if the people do not mind electing a Royal Runaway for Mayor,” pleads Princess Melita Bonaparte.

“Once I get Detroit back on its feet, then on to the Tatoi Palace.”–Princess Melita Bonaparte, regarding her 4th grade dreams as a Runaway Royal.
