ANNA SWEET GALLERIES HAS EXCITING NEWS BUT FIRST
We Start Part 5 of 6 with "QUESTIONABLE AIRPLANES THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT THE GROUND" by WWW.DEFINITIONS.ORG . The Editor from Definitions for this Feature is Tymber Aldaine and then we Feature The ART GUILD OF THE PURPLE KEYS 55th. Annual Members Vitual Art Show, Then The Key West Art and Historical Society has a New Exhibition at the Custom House " ITINERANT PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE 1910s / Under Construction Glass Plate Negatives of A. V. Rabenau " and then a Feature on ANNA SWEET.

VTOL technology was so popular back in the day that virtually everyone wanted to have their aircraft with this type of technology. The French attempted to have the VTOL technology through the Dassault Balzac. It proved successful because it was hailed as the aircraft with the fastest VTOL, hitting Mach 2! Unfortunately, it had zero safety features and so during the landing it crashed and killed the pilot. After several test runs, another crash killed another pilot.

The de Havilland Comet G-ALYY was the first commercial aircraft post-WWII. The British flocked towards the de Havilland Comet G-ALYY to experience flying with this majestic beauty. At first, it was a dream come true! But later, there were mechanical problems that even the most avid aviators could not shake off. It first started with a couple of runway mishaps and then quickly escalated to two aircrafts exploding in the sky. Needless to say, this British aircraft wasn’t a popular choice of air travel after those incidents.
 
Back in the day when the race to build the first airplane was happening, a man named Dr. William Christmas was in the race together with the Wright brothers. In reality, Christmas did not have any experience in the aviation industry and hoodwinked his way into letting the public believe that he personally flew the first airplane. When asked for evidence, Christmas said the plane and the plans were all squandered in a devastating fire. 
The Komet has the legacy of being the only rocket-powered aircraft of its kind during the day. True to its name, the Komet was so fast that it did not just beat the world’s fastest plane, it also doubled its speed! It was, however, not without its drawbacks: It was heavy on fuel consumption, and its fuel was nearly empty after just seven minutes of flight! It was also so fast that it completely missed the mark of its targets.
The Noviplano was the first flying boat, invented by Gianni Caproni. His dream was to fly 100 people out in the Atlantic at 100 mph over air and sea. The aircraft had eight engines and three sets of wings. His hydroplane succeeded in flying. However, it crashed into pieces minutes after. 
The Blackburn was meant to be one of the greatest military assets during the war, but its performance failed miserably. It was such a failure that all Blackburn aircrafts retired immediately after all its malfunctions. Some of its cringiest features included a faulty water landing, and capability and design issues that could not compete against other superior aircrafts.
The brother of the Blackburn B-25, another Blackburn aircraft, proved to be a failure. Its promising features included a twin-engine, a three-seater torpedo bomber, and reconnaissance craft. Its attributes were so stellar that it was meant to be part of the royal air force. After a request for it to become a four-seater, this aircraft proved to become so heavy that it experienced several crashes and was deemed too unstable.

The Key West Art & Historical Society WWW.KWAHS.ORG Opens a New Permanent Exhibition at The Custom House "ITINERANT PHOTOGRAPHERS OF THE 1910s / "Under Construction : Glass Plate Negatives of A.V. Rabenau"

The Key West Art & Historical Society is pleased to announce the opening of “Under Construction: Glass Plate Negatives of A.V. Rabenau,” an exhibition of vintage photographs staged in the Bumpus Gallery at the Custom House Museum, 281 Front Street. Curated by Cori Convertito, the exhibition features black and white prints from the original glass plate negatives taken by an itinerant photographer known as A.V. Rabenau.
 
The negatives were acquired by the Key West Art & Historical Society in late 2020 from a private collector. The collection consists of over sixty early 20th century glass plate negatives taken by Rabenau during a visit to the Florida Keys. Little is known of the photographer, but his striking work suggests he was an experienced professional. He visited the Florida Keys during a pivotal time in its history – the construction of the Overseas Railway. The ‘dry plate’ negatives are not dated, but it is probable that he paid a visit to the island chain sometime between 1909 and 1911.
 
“Rabenau was not alone in using glass plate negatives to capture images of railroad construction workers. From about 1870 to 1920, many photographers used fragile glass plates to portray daily life,” says Convertito. “Plates were sold in boxes, factory-coated with a gelatin emulsion of silver bromide, available through mail order or at stores in large villages such as Key West. The photographer loaded one negative at a time into their camera, made the exposure, and stored the negative until he or she developed it in a home darkroom.”
 
Significant portions of Rabenau’s images are staged portraits of the men, women and children living and working on Pigeon Key. Others are portraits of Key West’s residents taken at the time when the photographer established a temporary studio on the island.
 
“The negatives speak to a special time and place in Florida Keys history,” adds Convertito. “Rabenau never published his photographs, meaning the museum’s recently acquired collection brings never-before-seen images to light. You will not find his striking portraits anywhere else. They are a treasure.”
 
“Under Construction: Glass Plate Negatives of A.V. Rabenau” launches with an exhibit opening on April 30, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. that is open to the public. Social distancing and masks will be required in order to adhere to local and CDC guidelines. The exhibition runs until September 2021 and is sponsored by the Helmerich Trust and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs. For more information call Cori Convertito, Ph.D., at 305-295-6616 x112, email her at cconvertitofarrar@kwahs.org, or visit kwahs.org/exhibitions.  Your Museums. Your Community. It Takes an Island.

51st EARTH DAY JAM with That Hippie Band 
 
Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson saw the ravages of the 1969 Santa Barbara, California oil spill. He saw the Cuyahoga River catch fire from pollutants in downtown Cleveland. The LA smog was so bad you could no longer see the famous Hollywood sign. He founded the first Earth Day April 22, 1970, and 20 million mostly young Americans took to the streets to protest for a cleaner environment.
 
Fast forward 51 years later, Earth Day will be celebrated by over a billion people in 192 countries on every continent. The planet still needs our help more than ever, and we all still need this magical music era.
 
The 50th Earth Day in 2020 was the cleanest ever after the Covid locked down of the planet.  Emissions were down as much as 45%.  People in India could see the Himalayas for the first time, NASA satellites documented changes worldwide, the Grand Canal of Venice was crystal clear. 
 
Join us Thursday April 22nd for a special celebration of this glorious 51st Earth Day, with a fugitive band of Hippies from 60s that have been hanging out performing in Key West. They all use to have long hair, smoked weed, and could play any 60s song that anyone could remember.  
 
Gary Hempsey and “That Hippie Band”, will help you remember all those songs from the Age of Aquarius.  The Beatles, Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, Jefferson Starship, and some Crosby, Stills, & Nash will be rediscovered.  
 
The 2019 Earth Day Jam was a huge success, this year will be even better. So come on people now, smile on your brother, and enjoy all this wonderful music once again. It will be like Woodstock without the mud.
 
Wear your coolest Hippie clothes (oxymoron intended) and join the glorious celebration of the 51st Earth Day with Gary Hempsey and That Hippie Band will be tuned up ready to go. Reef Relief will be on display along with the Conch Republic Marine Army, and the Key West Parrot Heads will all help us celebrate. 
 
This is a Rams Head Production at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2021. Doors open at 5:00pm, music and fun begins at 6:00pm.

WE NOW START PART 3 OF A NEW PHOTOGRAPHIC FEATURE FROM WWW.THEDADDEST.COM "50 OF THE WORST CARS EVER MADE" Feature Editor OLIVER HAMILTON Published on 4/21/2020
MGA Twin-Cam
The MGA Twin Cam was a high-performance car made from 1958 to 1960. It was really fast for its day, hitting 113 miles per hour. Despite this, it had so many warranty issues that pointed to serious design flaws. The engine would burn oil and even detonate because holes would form in the pistons, although there hasn't been a reason cited for such a dangerous problem developing in the motor. After producing a bit over 2,000 of these, production ended.
1947 Davis D-2 Divan
The Davis D-2 Divan is an example of a failed three-wheeler, none of which ever caught on in America. In the 1940s, the Davis Motor Company marketed these cars extremely heavily and it was expected to be seen everywhere on the roads. The only thing was the owner of the company overestimated how well the car would perform and the cost, angering dealerships and investors alike. The company tanked and only 12 of these cars survive today. Although they're not very good, this rare lemon might actually go for six figures today.

Cadillac Fleetwood
A lot of cars nowadays have variable displacement, or cylinder deactivation, as this saves fuel and the engine by not using unneeded cylinders when the car doesn't need it. This technology wasn't well-developed back when the Fleetwood introduced it, although you have to credit GM with trying to make it work. Made from 1976 to 1996, these cars had a slew of engine problems because of this feature. They jerked and made weird noises, which prompted many owners to go and shut off this system.
Triumph TR7
The Triumph TR7 and the rarer, V8-powered TR8 were some of the last models the company sold before going out of business. Although the demand in the U.S. delayed the U.K. release, which peculiarly came later, this car didn't live up to its reputation as "the shape of things to come." It was famously bad when it was in production and is still noted as one of the worst sports cars in history. The sunroof leaked, the concealable headlights would rise, and the problems only get more serious when you look at the shoddy electronics.
1981 DeLorean DMC-12
The DeLorean has been immortalized in the Back to the Future movies, but the truth is quite the opposite about the cool-looking car. Driving one in real life is quite a different experience than the one you expect from the movie. As awesome as it looks, the Delorean engine isn't strong enough to hack the job of powering the heavy frame without a flux capacitor. In addition, the gullwing doors would malfunction. The car didn't take off and the maker, John DeLorean, was hit with a money-laundering scandal and the company shut down
.
1975 AMC Pacer
The AMC Pacer was supposed to be the future, but the two-door compact was a failure. It had great fuel economy, sure, yet that was its strongest selling point because it would lose control during hard stops and turns. It was hailed in the beginning for its small size in a time when the cars coming out of Detroit were massive, but soon better compact cars appeared on the market and replaced the Pacer. Sales dropped and AMC went out of business.
2001 Pontiac Aztek
The Pontiac Aztek has a cool name and was driven by Walter White in Breaking Bad. That's all it has going for it though. It was one of the most controversial cars from the beginning, hated by consumers the second their set eyes on it. Its terrible design was way over-engineered. The engine was weak and the plastic body casing made the car look really cheap. It definitely wasn't cheap, which is the reason GM sold so few models they didn't break even the first year.
Aston Martin Lagonda
Aston Martins are what James Bond drove back in the '70s, so the Lagonda makes a lot of sense. It had a sleek design, but it was the fact that it was built using the cutting edge electronics and computer equipment of the day. Too bad it was overambitious, as the advanced gadgets didn't really work very well. It was quite embarrassing for the company, which had even replaced the gauges on the display for a cathode-ray tube monitor.

The first main season event in May will be a virtual poetry performance, Reawakenings, premiering online May 23 at 8pm with Rushdie, Lucci, Abraham, Cerveris, Gleason, Irwin, Jones, Eady, plus Tony-nominees Karen Akers, Tony Roberts & Michael Stuhlbarg, as well as Austin Pendleton, Chris Sarandon, Barbara Feldon & Lynnette R.

Additionally, a public work, Full of Noises: a Village Soundwalk has been commissioned in honor of the 90th anniversary, linking the gifts of founder Mary Woodhouse to East Hampton, composed and narrated by sound artist Viv Corringham.
In June, Guild Hall will begin its outdoor Play in the Garden theater series with live performances at 8pm for a limited audience/Lawn Circle seats (to also be livestreamed/made available online).

The series will kick off with a Weekend of Wasserstein June 4-5 (a mini-fest of Wendy’s plays, two distinctive evenings filled with smart & shining treats from the voice of one of America’s most beloved playwrights, $100 per Lawn Circle which seats 1-2 people). June 11 will be a staged reading of Happy Birthday, Wanda June by Kurt Vonnegut (his first play which premiered in 1970 and was adapted into a film in 1971; capturing his brilliantly distinct perspective, it’s a darkly humorous, searing examination of the excesses of capitalism, patriotism & American culture in the post-Vietnam War era, $50 per Lawn Circle). The series will continue with Michael Urie and his partner Ryan Spahn starring in Edward Albee’s The Zoo Story July 8-11 ($100 per Lawn Circle), A Night with the Wolfe July 23 celebrating Tom Wolfe, also affectionately known as the Man in the White Suit (the evening will showcase his wit & cultural insights and will include excerpts from his novels, short works, articles & interviews, all told by performers each costumed in Wolfe’s iconic white suit, $100 per Lawn Circle). 5-time Tony-winner and Academy of the Arts member Susan Stroman will direct three unique live theater events Aug 27-29, and Labor Day Weekend Sep 3-4 will be the premiere of new play Crisis in Queens by Academy member Joy Behar ($200 per Lawn Circle). Sep 16-18 will be Temptation and Other Tales: An Evening of One-Acts, written and directed by Lyle Kessler, starring Richard Kind, Raye & Sawyer Spielberg, and Margaret Ladd ($100 per Lawn Circle).

The designation calls attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every person in this community.
The goal of the proclamation is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and educate communities on how to prevent it.
The proclamation was accepted by Darlene Thomas, President of the Key West chapter of the National Organization for Women and Christine Depre. Depre serves as Sexual Assault Response Team Coordinator and Advocate for Christina’s Courage, a non-profit that provides support for victims of sexual abuse.
Nationally One in five women and one in 67 men will be sexually assaulted at some point in their lives. Additionally, child sexual abuse prevention must be a priority for all genders.
Incidents of sexual assault has increased on school campuses and in the military.
“Our words shape the world around us,” reads the proclamation. “Whether you speak out against locker room talk or help someone better understand these issues, your voice in powerful and necessary in this conversation.”

The Key West City Commission recently honored one of the island city’s prominent writers by proclaiming Tennessee Williams Day.
Williams, one of the greatest 20th century American playwrights, lived and worked in Key West from 1949 until his death in 1983. His classics of the American stage earned him two Pulitzer Prizes, a Tony Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and many other literary and theater awards. In addition, his work reached world-wide audiences when his plays were adapted into motion pictures, winning several academy awards.
One of his Williams’s major plays, "The Rose Tattoo,” was written, filmed, and premiered in Key West at the San Carlos Institute.
March 26th marked Williams’s 110th birthday and was the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Tennessee Williams Museum in Key West. Founder and curator Dennis Beaver and curator Cori Convertito were on hand to receive the proclamation.

ALYSON CREAN WRITES IN AN APRIL 12 Feature
For many people in our community, they’re nameless, faceless voices. Some of us are lucky enough to never have to talk to them. But when we need them, they're always there. These voices calmly extract information from people whose lives are suddenly turned upside down. These voices ensure that help arrives quickly. They are the unsung heroes behind all emergency responders: the dispatchers.
This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. These dedicated professionals are on hand 24 hours a day to ensure that any emergency or crisis is dispatched quickly. This week is a chance for the community to thank these men and women who work tirelessly during emergencies.
Please take a moment to thank these important members of the community who deal with each crisis with dedicated professionalism.

NACo ANNOUNCES “I LOVE MY COUNTY BECAUSE” ART CONTEST FOR STUDENTS 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Students in Monroe County have an opportunity to show off their love for their local government at the national level. To strengthen civic education in schools and communities and educate youth on the role of county government, the National Association of Counties (NACo) launched the “I Love My County Because” Art Contest in conjunction with National County Government Month celebration taking place this April.
NACo is spreading the word about how counties operate to children and young adults across the country ages 18 and under by inviting them to create artwork for a 2021-2022 “Counties Matter” calendar to celebrate April as National County Government Month.  We encourage all students across Monroe County to submit their artwork to the ‘I Love My County Because’ contest,” said Monroe County Mayor Michelle Coldiron. “By participating, we hope to raise awareness about county programs and services that impact people’s lives every day in the Florida Keys.”
Winning artwork will be featured in an 18-month NACo calendar, which will be distributed to NACo members nationwide. Winners will also be announced in the NACo publication “County News” and their artwork will be displayed at NACo’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.. “We hope to see a student from Monroe County and Monroe County’s uniqueness highlighted in next year’s calendar,” said Coldiron.  
The competition submission period closes May 31, 2021. There is no entry fee. For a full list of eligibility criteria and rules, visit www.naco.org/ncgm. Submissions can be uploaded online.

UP NEXT OUR WEEKLY FEATURE FROM BILL AND LINDA KLIPP "PHOTOGRAPHS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AND THE KEYS" BUT FIRST PART 4 FROM WWW.UPBEATNEWS.COM "BIG TIME CELEBRITIES THAT DON'T GET HIRED ANYMORE"
Oddly enough, only Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks was blacklisted. The band generally did fine, but Maines was not allowed to appear on TV. She was openly against Bush's decision to invade Iraq and made it known. Apparently, that was deemed unpatriotic and she was barred from working with a lot of TV stations.
Snoop Dogg has pretty much done it all. Hollywood still loves him, especially on his show with Martha Stewart (the two weirdest friends ever). Funnily enough, he was been banned from multiple countries for his marijuana hobby. The rapper is not allowed to enter or tour in the countries in which he has been banned. The newest addition to the list is Norway.
Orson Welles was a fabulously popular man in the film industry. He directed Citizen Kane, which is still noted as one of the most important moves of all time. Back in the day, the US government was a little suspicious of the film. So much so that the FBI launched an investigation to make ties between Welles and communism!
Lloyd Bridges is super popular for his role in Airplane! but most people didn't know that he was actually blacklisted from Hollywood for a short time. Like many actors in the '50s, he was blacklisted for his apparent ties with communism and socialism. He was open about his liberal views, which raised suspicions of ties with Russia and communism. After 10 years, he was finally able to convince folks that he wasn't a Russian spy and went on to have a great career.

Key West Wanderings – Dog Beach Yacht Club –Race #3

Regatta #3 was met with strong favorable winds creating heavy seas with dense seaweed which wrecked havoc with the boats return lines. Never the less there were more boats than the previous week. A good time was had by both the boat captains and spectators.
The Dog Beach Yacht Club sponsors Sunday boat races off Dog Beach for hand crafted sailboats 1 meter and under.

Before she was Ginger on Gilligan's Island, Tina Louise was interviewing Elvis Presley when he was in the military and stationed at Fort Dix. In 1959, Elvis had returned from military duty in Germany. At the time, Louise was a struggling actress trying to get a foothold in the business. She appeared as a pinup model as well as in pictorials for Playboy magazine. The gigs were arranged by Columbia Pictures studio in an effort to further promote the young actress.
Elvis entered the United States Army at Memphis, Tennessee, on March 24, 1958. The King was stationed overseas and was a member of the 1st Medium Tank Battalion, 32d Armor. Fans cried when he had to shave his sideburns.

WE CONTINUE WITH PART 4 FROM WWW.UPBEATNEWS.COM "BIG TIME CELEBRITIES THAT DON'T GET HIRED ANYMORE"
Despite Lee Grant becoming extremely popular, she was still under the suspicion of being "unamerican." She was asked to testify against her husband to the House Un-American Activities Committee, which she refused to do. This was an incredibly difficult time for her. Somehow, she and her husband were able to clear themselves of any wrongdoing.
Like many women before her, Ashley Judd was blacklisted by Harvey Weinstein. She refused his advances multiple times. Once he was finally sick of her declining him, he made sure that she never worked in Hollywood again. Luckily, she had enough evidence to take him to court and they settled for a few million dollars. She was un-backlisted.
Randy Quaid is quite the character. He had some great films like Independence Day and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. He's been on a downward spiral ever since the '90s. He is now politically motivated and posts incredibly outlandish far-right videos and stories. He has been arrested multiple times for vandalism. He secured his spot on the blacklist after his wife, Evi, sent everyone in the Equity Actors Union a nude photo of herself holding guns.
Corey Feldman has been noted as an interesting character in the past few years. He was very outspoken about an underground pedophile ring way before it was confirmed to be true, and high-ranking Hollywood execs (most likely the ones involved!) blacklisted him. Sadly, it was a long struggle for him to be understood.
Banks is a volatile rapper who has gotten into drama with every major musician. She was finally "canceled" for her offensive, homophobic, fatphobic, and ableist takes on Twitter. No one misses her
