OUR FIRST FEATURE IN THE MARCH 29TH ISSUE : IS OUR WEEKLY PHOTOGRAPHIC FEATURE "AROUND THE WORLD IN PHOTOGRAPHS. This Week Phillip Island in Australia.

Phillip Island, a popular day trip from Melbourne, lies just off Australia’s southern coast. At Summerland Beach, spectators gather daily at sunset to watch the Penguin Parade, when Little penguins come ashore in groups. The Nobbies outcrop is the viewing site for Seal Rocks, home to a large colony of Australian fur seals. The Phillip Island Circuit is a well-known track for motorcycle and car racing.

THE 2019 "MANGO MADNESS" FROM THE STUDIOS OF KEY WEST (3 Sections in this March 29th. Issue)
We Start Part 1 of 4 with "QUESTIONABLE AIRPLANES THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT THE GROUND" by WWW.DEFINITIONS.ORG . The Editor from Definitions for this Feature is Tymber Aldaine
The Wright Flyer is considered a legend in the aviation industry. It completed its first flight back in 1903, only centuries after the first balloon aviation. The flight lasted for about 59 seconds, with over 850 feet in the air on North Carolina’s beaches. All seems well until the most crucial part of any flight, the landing. Individuals have described the landing as so shaky and turbulent that it broke the airplane’s front support and forced the Wright Flyer into air somersaults, and it was never flown again.
Since planes are considered assets, especially during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered plane manufacturers with around 50,000 airplanes to aid the US in winning the war. The Fisher P-75 Eagle was meant to be the top-of-the-line aircraft with a fantastic climb and aggressive artillery rate. However, during the test run, the Fisher P-75 Eagle did not deliver as promised and missed its target. Because it was so bad, the program was discontinued.
The promise of aircrafts transporting people to and from countries was about to be fulfilled with the McDonnell Douglas DC-10. However, it was named the “Death Trap” attributing to several flight disasters killing hundreds of people because of its subpar safety features. Its worst flight disaster was a flight from Paris that crashed in Turkey and killed more than 300 people. Another tragedy of the DC-10 killed around 200 people shortly after its take-off.
The Bell Airacuda’s initial design promised this aircraft to be the frontrunner in airplanes when it came to being a war weapon. It was supposed to be armed with speed and fighting power with its dangerous cannon gun torrents mounted on each side of its wings. However, the Bell Airacuda did not deliver as promised. Because it was so heavy, its trajectory was also very slow, making it impossible to operate under stealth. The weaponry installed also backfired, because instead of shooting forward, it just filled the gun compartment with smoke.
Looks can be deceiving when it comes to the Vought Cutlass. With its sleek and imposing design, one would think this is a weapon of mass destruction. However, this aircraft has been underperforming in war because out of all the 300 fleets manufactured, around 75 were destroyed. Because of its frequent engine failures, more 25 navy pilots have been killed, and more navy pilots have quit after flying the Vought Cutlass.

Bill Thompson Interior Worlds
“Act as though what you do makes a difference. It does“. William James American Philosopher. 
Bill Thompson paints as though he lives this quote every time he begins a new work. It is what he lives for along with his wife and children, of course. He will leave his exuberant mark on the world of art. 
He has developed a style of oil stick and acrylic mixed media work that is unlike anyone else’s, but has it’s roots in classic French painting.
That said his work most reminds this writer of the Fauvist. Early 20th century colorists like Monet and Darien who used vibrant color and heavy gesticulation causing a critic of the day to call them “The Wild Beasts”. 
And like the Fauvists he uses pure, brilliant color aggressively applied straight from the oil stick to create a sense of fireworks on the canvas. 
“The Quiet Place” 48 x 36 Is typical of Bill Thompson’s chandeliered interior spaces with exterior ocean views, dramatic Mozarabe archways, colorful patterns & tropical foliage. 
“Interior Worlds” 30 x 48 a bold horizontal, boasts five Romanesque arches above sailboats anchored in the cove below. The warm patterned furniture invites the viewer to peacefully contemplate the sunset on the horizon. 
If you’re looking for a legitimate work of fine art to uplift and make you feel good about the world during a difficult time, talented Bill Thompson’s interiors with ocean beautiful views are just the ticket. 
CDC protocols will be respected. Two days of private one hour viewings available by appointment.

305-731-0581 REBECCA TOMLINSON MANAGING ARTISTIC DIR.

Fringe Theater, in partnership with the Samuel’s House, presents an online one-woman play called The Shot, March 24-27. This national project is connecting the performing arts with local women’s shelters to draw attention to domestic violence and to raise funds for both nonprofits. The play was inspired by the life of Katharine Graham.  Who is Katharine Graham? Before she was the acclaimed publisher of the Washington Post (1963-1991), before she presided over the reporting of the Watergate scandal, before she became the first CEO of a Fortune 500 company, she was a wife with a secret.  “Many people find it difficult to believe that a strong woman would stay in an abusive relationship,” says Rebecca Tomlinson, Fringe’s Managing Artistic Director. “Or that a well loved and educated man would be an abuser. This play powerfully presents that complex story.”
The Shot is performed by film and TV star Sharon Lawrence. Audiences may be most familiar with the EMMY nominated actor from NYPD Blue, Desperate Housewives, or Grey’s Anatomy. The play was poised to open as a sold-out reading at the historic Ebell Club in Los Angeles when COVID-19 struck last March. So the producer, director, and playwright decided to re-envision the play into a one-woman video. 
The Shot will be available online and on demand March 24 – 27 at www.fringetheater.org. The play is offered at no charge, but patrons are encouraged to purchase a “Pay What You Will” ticket or make a tax deductible donation. Ticket Sales and donations collected in conjunction with this project will be divided between the two nonprofits. A private matching grant will provide the opportunity for donations to double their impact (up to $5k total). “Samuel’s House is such an important resource for our community,” concludes Janet Bengel. “We are thrilled that Fringe can once again give back by supporting it.” To learn more about the Samuel’s House, go to www.samuelshouse.org. To learn more about this national project, go to www.theshotplay.com. To learn more about Fringe, call 305-731-0581 or go to www.fringetheater.org or send an email to info@fringetheater.org.

56 Rare Groovy Photos
Written by Harmon Leon
Jimi Hendrix smoking, London ‘67. 
Jimi Hendrix actually became big in the U.K. before making it in the States; despite the fact that he is originally from Seattle. Jimi arrived in London in 1966 when he was an unknown guitar maestro. By the time he left in June 1967, he was one of the biggest acts in Britain. His stint in London changed the face of music. When Pete Townsend first saw Hendrix play live, he was so impressed that he told fellow guitarist friends that they should all retire because he just saw the future of music.
Jimi's performance at The Saville Theatre on 4th. June 1967 was attended by two of the Beatles, George Harrison and Paul McCarthy. In a sign of pure cockiness or tribute - Hendrix opened the set with his rendition of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The song had only been released the Thursday before. 
Marilyn Monroe in one of her early films, on the set of Love Nest, post-World War II comedy, 1951. 

Before she became a megastar, Marilyn Monroe appeared in small roles in many forgettable films. In the 1951 comedy movie, Love Nest, Monroe had a supporting role and doesn't even appear in the film until the 31st minute. The movie also featured future Tonight Show host, Jack Paar. The premise of the movie is simple: Two married New Yorkers purchase an old, run-down building full of colorful tenants.
The swimsuit that Monroe wore in the movie caused a commotion. It was considered so risqué at the time, that the director, Joseph M. Newman, had to make it a closed set while she was filming in said swimming costume. Oh how the times have changed...
Wilt Chamberlain, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Andre the Giant-- on the set of Conan, an 1984 American adventure film
Rodney Dangefield meets 'The King' in Las Vegas, 1969. 

Here's a man who usually gets no respect - getting some respect from Elvis Presley in Las Vegas. Again, its so surreal seeing photos of celebrities you never thought would ever cross paths. Rodney Dangerfield's career took off when he was called in as a last-minute replacement for an act on Ed Sullivan Show in 1967. He was often invited back and became a headliner in Las Vegas. Thus where this photographic meeting-of-the-minds took place. Meanwhile, Elvis had just filmed his legendary comeback special the year before - and was having a rejuvenated resurgence of his career. Elvis also loved comedy - and once cited that Andy Kaufman did the best impersonation of The King.
 
.
The Bruce, 1970s. 

Man this guy was cool. Just look at his style. Bruce Lee was the king of Golden Harvest cinema with such classic martial arts films as Enter the Dragon, First of Fury, and The Game of Death - where he fought a 7'2 Kareem Abdul Jabbar (who was Lee's martial arts student in real life). Lee was born in San Francisco's Chinatown to immigrant parents from Hong Kong. His mom was a Cantonese opera star.
Lee is credited for changing the face of cinema - for being the first major Asian actor to appear in starring movie roles that made it big in America. Lee is also credited for founding the martial art Jeet Kune Do. Plus, as you can see in the photo, he was one hell of a cool cat.

HELEN, BEN AND COLE HARRISON SEND REGARDS; AND TELL US
Key West's very own Sally Binard debuted her latest show, "None of The Above", at The Studios of Key West this past January. Now, we at Harrison Gallery are beyond pleased to host select pieces from her collection.
 
A poignant excerpt from Sally's recent interview with Mark Hedden of Keys Weekly:
“I just learned so much from the other artists and saw the power of what they – and now I can include myself – were doing. It was a conversation that was not just about hanging a pretty picture on the wall. And that’s just when I was hooked on art being something bigger than aesthetics and pretty stuff, and about the function that we can play in social change or environmental change.


To view more of Sally's work visit our website or come by Harrison Gallery at 825 White Street.

NOW OUR WEEKLY "PHOTOGRAPHS FROM AROUND KEY WEST" by ROBERTA DePIERO (Two sections in this March 29th. Issue)
Pt 1 of 2 in this Issue from Roberta DePiero and her Weekly "Around the Keys in Photographs"So today, we stopped by Simonton Court Historic Inn and Cottages to check in on the orchids we had seen last September growing in all their trees..
It was well worth the trip. We met the gardener and he told us that they buy orchids to place on their room porches, then when the blooms fall off, he places them around the property. He fertilizes twice a year, a little water now and then and voilà - blooms galore!

Roberta Comments : Sunrise at White Street Pier followed by Plogging the Keys around the area.
MORE FROM ROBERTA DePIERO UP SHORTLY IN THIS ISSUE

The City of Key West and Waste Management want to remind local businesses to recycle cardboard and do it properly.
Cardboard from commercial entities must be contained, whether its bundled with string or flattened and placed in a box. Unsecured flattened boxes are a trip hazard, especially in the Duval Street corridor. Stacked and flattened boxes, if unsecured, can be as slippery as ice for a pedestrian.
According to Waste Management District Manager Greg Sullivan, commercial entities must have a commercial recycling account in order to recycle their cardboard. He noted that commercial recycling rates cost less than trash rates, so an account actually saves businesses money.
To set up a commercial recycling account contact Waste Management at 305-296-8297.
Cardboard is one of the easiest materials to recycle. So save money and the planet by safely containing and recycling your boxes.

Proof of residency includes a Florida Driver’s License and vehicle registration, or a property bill with an out-of-county vehicle registration for out-of-county residents who own a home in Monroe County. These stickers make reentry easier if checkpoints are required to assure safe re-entry into the Keys following a destructive storm that causes a public safety issue.
 
The new system is barcoded with color-coded stickers for zone-by-zone reentry. Lower Keys residents from the south end of the 7 Mile Bridge to Stock Island (MM 40 to MM 4) will be dark pink, Middle Keys residents from the south end of the Long Key Bridge to the north end of the 7 Mile Bridge (MM 64 to MM 47) are aqua, and Upper Keys residents from the county line including Ocean Reef to the north end of the Long Key Bridge (MM 113 to MM 64) will have a purple decal. The City of Key West requires its own sticker, which is white. If City of Key West residents already have a City of Key West reentry decal, they do not need to pick up a new one. 
 
WHERE TO GET REENTRY STICKERS
 
Residents from Ocean Reef to Stock Island: Stickers are available at the Monroe County Tax Collector’s office locations from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 
Tax Collector Locations:
Key West - 1200 Truman Ave, Ste 101, or the DMV at 3304 N. Roosevelt Blvd
Marathon - 3015 Overseas Hwy
NEW LOCATION: Big Pine Key – 247 Key Deer Blvd (Tuesday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.)
Plantation Key - 88800 Overseas Hwy
Key Largo - 101487 Overseas Hwy
 
Residents who live in Ocean Reef: Stickers are available at Ocean Reef Public Safety, 110 Anchor Dr., Key Largo. 
Residents in Key West: STICKERS ARE THE SAME, IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THIS STICKER YOU DO NOT NEED A NEW ONE. If you do not already have a reentry sticker, they are available at Key West City Hall, 1300 White St., or the Key West Police Department, 1604 North Roosevelt Blvd, and the tax collector’s main office at 1200 Truman Ave, Ste 101. The hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 
Stickers will be available throughout the year, but do not wait until a storm is approaching to pick up a sticker. There are plenty of stickers, so no need to rush over, but add it to your list in for next time you are running errands. Stickers will not be available once a state of emergency is declared in Monroe County, which occurs several days before a storm is forecast to strike. For more information on reentry after a storm, visit www.monroecountyem.com/reentrystickers.

UP NEXT OUR WEEKLY FEATURE FROM BILL AND LINDA KLIPP "PHOTOGRAPHS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AND THE KEYS" BUT FIRST PART 1 FROM WWW.UPBEATNEWS.COM "BIG TIME CELEBRITIES THAT DON'T GET HIRED ANYMORE"
Justin Bieber started his career on a high note. As a young kid on Youtube, he published multiple videos of him singing and playing guitar. Usher took note of the young kid and noticed his star quality. Soon, Bieber was all over the world. Of course, as he grew up and became a teenager, he started to get out of control and was making headlines for all of the wrong reasons
Katherine Heigl was a very popular actress at the height of her career. Apparently, that demand got to her head and she became a classic Hollywood diva. She's been quoted as "horrible to work with" on and off-set, which is something you never want to have on your record. According to people that worked with her, she would constantly question and edit her script without permission from the directors. She would refuse to leave her trailer if things weren't going her way, wore uncharacteristic outfits to shoots that the stylist did not approve of, and, of course, act like a bully to all lower-ranked employees. Heigl has been heavily blacklisted.
Mel Gibson was famous for his roles in countless popular films and was eventually a common household name. His career took a turn after he caused a horrific accident while driving drunk. That wouldn't be his last DUI incident nor his last alcoholic incident... It only got worse. As if he couldn't make things worse, he eventually went on an intense antisemitic rant to the press. Naturally, he was swiftly blacklisted and was without work for 10 years. He's slowly reprising his career and taking on some roles, but he leaves a bitter taste in most peoples' mouths.
Mo'nique first rose to fame for the 2009 movie Precious. She played an abusive mother that was so convincing she even won multiple awards. People were amazed that such a new actress would have so much critical acclaim, but that all came crashing down when the fame seemingly got to her head. She was ultimately blacklisted... Her behavior off-screen was most troubling to producers and directors everywhere. Apparently, she was so difficult to work with during her 2010 campaign to help the film win an Oscar that she was blacklisted. Hollywood execs still hold onto that, and she's rarely gotten work since.
This Issue March 29 , 2021 will have 3 more Celebs Up Shortly and then Part 2 will be in the April 5th Issue . WWW.UPBEATNEWS.COM "BIG TIME CELEBRITIES THAT DON'T GET HIRED ANYMORE"

Key West Wanderings – Scotty’s Front Street Stage
Our first visit to this new bar / restaurant / music venue in Key West. While we see a lot of good music in our Key West Wanderings I have to say last night we heard one of the best musical performances we have seen in awhile. Skipper Kripitz and friends; Channing Lynn, Ross Brown, with special guest Richard Tazewell and walk-on performances by singers Jodyrae Campbell, Belisa Lea and Claire. This was one high quality musical evening.
We didn’t get a chance to taste the food other than some Conch Chowder which was fair at best. Next time we will have to try something else.

PART 2
56 Rare Groovy Photos
Written by Harmon Leon

Timmy (Jon Provost ) and Lassie, 1961.

Hey Lassie! What are you trying to tell me? Is there a little boy stuck in well!? Let's go save him Lassie! The show Lassie ran from September 12, 1954, to March 25, 1973; making it the fifth longest-running U.S. prime time television series. (The Simpsons is number one.) The show was created by a real-life animal trainer and follows canine Lassie's adventures in a small farming community. In 1961, Jon Provost played Lassie's human-friend Timmy Martin. No slouch to acting, young Provost's previous roles were in the 1954 film The Country Girl starring Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly- and Back from Eternity with Anita Ekberg. Campbell's Soup, the show's lifelong sponsor during its run. In 1964, 14-year old Provost left the show - despite Campbell's Soup Company wanting him to appear for three more years. Lassie decided to stay on.
Taking a Dr. Pepper break on set of Halloween, 1978. 

Even scary movie monster, Michael Myers, gets thirsty. Here's actor Tony Moran - taking a break from slashing people on set - to clown around with an ice cold Dr. Pepper. The 1978 movie was filmed for a meager budget of $300,000, but went on to gross $47 million at the US box office. Halloween has become one of the longest running movie franchises. Director John Carpenter thought the hiring of Jamie Lee Curtis in the lead role was the ultimate tribute to Alfred Hitchcock - who had cast her mother, Janet Leigh, in the legendary role in Psycho.
Shopping at the super market in hair curlers back in the 1960s. 

Times have changed. Back in the 60s, in the days where Mad Men would almost seem like a documentary, the role of women was largely seen by society as being a housewife, taking care of the home, and making sure you looked pretty for your husband when he comes home from work. The 60s was also a time for change - and ushered in the Women's Liberation Movement. The premise of the movement was that that economic, psychological, and social freedom were necessary for women to progress from being second-class citizens in their societies. And such second-class citizen duties of women at the time - was putting on curlers and shopping for their husband's chicken pot pie dinner.
Tom Hanks was a guest star on "Happy Days" in 1982, as an old nemesis of 'Fonzie' seeking revenge. 

Holy crap. You know the phrase "Jump the Shark"? It was created after the Happy Days episode where the cast goes to Los Angeles and Fonzi jumps over a shark cage on water skis. Well, this looks like another great Happy Days jump the shark moment. What you have hear is young Tom Hanks in a karate outfit about to fight Fonzi. The episode is called: A Little Case Of Revenge. It aired in 1982 as part of the show's 10th season. Hanks plays a character who returns to settle a 17-year grudge with Fonzi - concerning a beef when The Fonz pushed him off a swing when they were youngsters.
At the time, Hanks was a struggling actor you just appeared on the failed sitcom Bosom Buddies - and was making guest appearances on Taxi and Family Ties before getting his big break in 1984 in the movie Splash.
Varsity high school cheerleader Meryl Streep on the Bernards High School Mountaineers squad in 1966. 

Two, four, six, eight, who do we appreciate? The Oscar-winning actress - Meryl Streep! Here is the star of Sophie's Choice back in 1966 when she was a varsity high school cheerleader on the Bernards High School Mountaineers squad in Summit, New Jersey. Streep's family comes from a long lineage of immigrants who settled on these shore in the 17th century. The actress is also a distant relative of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. Records show that her family is among the first purchasers of land in the state - which means they probably come from some serious old money.
Streep appeared in numerous school plays in high school years, but didn't really get the acting bug until she went to Vassar College in 1969. All I can say to that is, "Oh Mamma Mia!"

Part 2 in this Issue from Roberta DePiero and her Weekly Photographic Feature "Around the Keys in Photographs".

So today, we stopped by Simonton Court Historic Inn and Cottages to check in on the orchids we had seen last September growing in all their trees..
It was well worth the trip. We met the gardener and he told us that they buy orchids to place on their room porches, then when the blooms fall off, he places them around the property. He fertilizes twice a year, a little water now and then and voilà - blooms galore!
