Herbie is an anthropomorphic 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, a character that is featured in several Disney motion pictures starting with the 1968 feature film The Love Bug. He has a mind of his own and is capable of driving himself, and is also a serious contender in auto racing competitions. Throughout most of the franchise, Herbie is distinguished by red, white and blue racing stripes from front to back bumper, a racing-style number "53" on the front luggage compartment lid, doors, and engine lid, and a yellow-on-black '63 California license plate with the lettering "OFP 857".

Good Luck, happy guessing!

The vehicle used for the Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis, built by the Miller-Meteor company. The ambulance/hearse combination was the end loader variety. Dr. Ray Stantz found the vehicle shortly after he mortgaged his mother's house to buy the Firehouse.

THIS IS "HOW I WORK" BLOGATHON

------------------------------------------
 
What apps can you not live without?
Many of my images and art comes from random places o the internet "Photobucket" is one I use for my animated headers. The rest are too scattered to mention, though I do my best to credit those I take from.
 
What is your favorite blogging app?
I use GOOGLE+ without any knowing how it all works, like TWITTER.
 
What gadgets (besides your phone) you can't live without?
I am actually afraid of technology, I have an Ipad... manly for Angry Birds.

What lifehacks make your life easier?
Here is where I say programs like "PHOTOSHOP" or I should have mentioned it before this and or after. I cannot get far without this by my side or at the very least close. My email is always open as I get request for upcoming projects, jobs, schedules, music (I love music) and friends who stop in too say "Hello". I have my favorite T-shirt place "NEATOSHOP" that I was fortunate enough to get on the ground floor of being an artist, they have grown so much I am buried deep amongst all the new talented people. My wife has know idea have the time what I am working on, she lets me be happy and I thank her for that. My love for my kids, well my animals Casey and Isabel the best cat and dog tag team anyone could ever have.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Where do you get your news?
I watch the morning news WGN Chicago, TMZ and posts that people leave on the feed in FACEBOOK. Nothing to fancy, just what I find interesting or overhear around the mental water cooler.


What are your favorite social media apps?
FACEBOOK gives me the most and YOUTUBE for my need for cat videos and trailers!
 
How do you blog?
I try to post everyday on something, maybe something you know or something you don't as I look in my folders of images trying to find that inspiration for the week of posts. It's complete madness at times, things some and go in a blink of an eye...

What is your day job?
It's funny one side of me enjoys working at the music/game resale shop, that brings me closer to the things I love and the whole point to blogging. The other side works as a freelance designer for several companies who have been happy with my work for years. Last side is a promoter for one of the cooler music/score labels "HOWLIN' WOLF RECORDS" where when new releases happen then I get to promoting. 


Wanted to thank Mariah M. of "A Space Blogyssey" for letting me share me, with you! The world of blogging let's us be who we want to be and sometimes we get to share something that makes you smile... laugh!

PSYCHO - SHOWER SCENE!


According to the book “Psycho in the Shower: The History of Cinema’s Most Famous Scene,” author Philip Skerry says that Hitchcock said in an interview that the movie’s careful plot and character development plodded along “to lead an audience completely up the garden path. They [viewers] thought the story was about a girl who stole $40,000. This was deliberate."

The scene was a rousing success at the box office, but caused trouble for American households. An angry father once sent Hitchcock a letter saying that his daughter had refused to take a bath after seeing the 1955 movie, "Diabolique," and after seeing "Psycho," defied his orders to shower. Hitchcock replied to the man with a letter saying, "Send her to the dry cleaners," according to IMDb.




Janet Leigh said that upon seeing the shower scene so many times, she has interpreted it as a baptism of sorts. "There's a light, almost an ethereal light, a heavenly light on Marion," she told the New York Times in a 1995 interview. "It was like she was being purified. Cleansed. The water -- it was like she was being baptized. She was cleaning not only her body but also the inner dirt. And this made the attack even more horrible."

"I stopped taking showers and I take baths, only baths," she told the Times. She said then that even staying at a friend's house or in a hotel was unsettling to her. "I make sure the doors and windows of the house are locked," she said, "and I leave the bathroom door open and shower curtain open. I'm always facing the door, watching, no matter where the shower head is."

Hitchcock enlisted composer Bernard Herrmann to write the film's score, but originally wanted the shower scene to be without music. Herrmann defied him and once he heard the piercing strings and screeching climax, Hitchcock gladly accepted it. He also nearly doubled Herrmann's pay. David Raksin, a colleague of the composer, is quoted as saying: "Remarkable composer that he was, [Herrmann] was that despite a rudimentary sense of melody, which he sought to remedy by repeating short phrases in sequences -- meaning that he would state a brief musical phrase and then repeat it, and repeat it again and again in other positions."  The shower scene's music was voted in 2009 as "scariest movie theme of all time" in a PRS for Music survey. It beat the theme from "The Omen".
