Grey Tudor Revival by jadalles1533 on Flickr.


611 North Cherokee Avenue - DeLand - Florida

Leaving the porch light on for Snow White…!

Picturesque cottage orné style, complete with asymmetric facade, projecting vestiblue with arched entry door, curved gable roof, grouped (banded) windows, diamond-paned casements, shed dormer, and prominent chimney. Note the Prairie influence in the windows under the black awning. The ogee pediment and columns at the front door display a Jacobean sensiblity.

The owners have selected a very sophisticated color scheme. The dark grey of the stucco and the shingles allow the home to recede on the lot as well as permitting the crisp white trim on the windows and eves to pop. The red of the vintage screen door and black of the door and awning complete this classic look.

Alien Ball Bearing by Thingiverse creator Steve Medwin.

This thing has five independent balls that roll around inside the organic ring. It reminds me of an alien version of a ball bearing, even though the inside doesn’t roll separately from the outside like a real bearing does. It’s another fun desk toy to play with during a slow meeting or conference call. If you aim compressed air at the balls at just the right angle, you can get them spinning pretty quickly around the ring!”

These are just stupid.

(From Hypebeast): “Amongst Henrik Vibskov’s “On the Beach” collection for Spanish brand Medwins are these unique and somewhat outlandish sunglasses. While the frame is a relatively basic rounded tortoise shape, the sunglasses feature oblong shaped clip-on lenses, creating a distinct and playful look. Having said that, quality is not lacking as the frames are horn-rimmed while the lenses are scratch-resistant polycarbonate. The Henrik Vibskov Medwinds “On the Beach” sunglasses are currently available from the Medwindsonline store for £180 GBP (approximately $280 USD).”

738 North Tuxedo Avenue - DeLand - Florida

Architecture by Medwin Peek - 1926

This three bedroom, two and a half bath “University Terrace” home displays a Prairie Style cruciform plan; other Prairie elements inlcude the hip roofs the grouped windows and the stucco finish. Although the barrel tiles give the home a Spanish flavor, it could be set down in River Forest or Oak Park and look very much at home.

Here is Wright’s design in the February of 1901 issue of Ladies Home Journal, entitled “A Home in a PrairieTown”, surely the inspiration for this DeLand landmark:

WhatCha think, Bobo? Do you reCognize yourself? ⊂(・㉨・)⊃

> You smile a bit to your lusus as you walk the road up. It’s been sweeps since you last were around these areas… These areas where you spent the first five sweeps of your life.

> Though, you didn’t care much for searching up your old hive. No, you were here to visit an old friend…

> It wasn’t hard to spot Lanomi’s hive, the big garden and the huge plant house installment by it kind of gave it away. She had told you about it some over Trollian, but it was still odd to see how different everything was. Back when you left, the garden was small and the only plant house she had you could barely be in both at the same time because it was so small, compared to this…

> Out of your pocket you fish up your harmonica, putting it to your lips and playing some tunes as you walk through the fence of the lawnring and into her garden.

ABOVE US THE WAVES - RALPH THOMAS, 1955

A film inspired by real life events, Above Us the Waves tells the story of the attacks on the Tirpitz warship by the British Navy using manned torpedoes and mini subs.

The film stars John Mills, John Gregson, Michael Medwin, James Justice, Lee Patterson and the late Donald Sinden. Although the film is far from terrible, it does not contain the anxious tension that many have come to expect from ‘doomed-submarine-voyage’ genre pieces.

HUWAG MO NANG ITANONG? PARE KO. Buti na lang SABADO bukas..Napuyat lang…nagyaya si Medwin kagabi sa kanila. Ang LORD OF THE RHUM! Ako’y napa-LIGAYA nung kami’y mag-inuman ng ALKOHOL, Mag GANJAZZ at mag-BATO sa sobrang kalasingan ako’y na pa CIRCUS. Kaya pakiramdam ko’y parang nasa ALAPAAP na may PARU-PARONG NINGNING at WITH A SMILE na ngiti.Sabi nga ni KIM,EASY KA LANG baka magalit si SHIRLEY.tapos may tugtugan ang COMBO ON THE RUN at ako’y napa SHAKE YER HEAD sa kanta nilang pang PARA SA MASA. tapos meron pang POPMACHINE at KAHIT ANO pa MAY SUMASAYAW na naka-MASKARA. Tapos nakaramdam ako ng INSOMYA mula pa noong 1995. At kaya naman ako’y nasasabik sa’kin KAMASUPRA.. it’s HARD TO BELIEVE paano ako naka-uwi? Ang alam ko lang i’m WAITING FOR A BUS na TRIP TO JERUSALEM.. kaya lang nag OVERDRIVE yung driver ng bus! Kaya yun na FLAT TIRE..tinanong ko sya ng HOW FAR WILL U GO? tapos sabi nya HUWAG KANG MATAKOT kasama mo naman ako. Tapos tumigil kami sa TINDAHAN NI ALING NENA para HARANAin ang anak nyang galing Canada na si TOYANG na may dala-dalang BALIKBAYAN BOX. At kami’y BUMUGCHI at pina-TIKMAN niya yung FRUITCAKE at BANANATYPE at may kasamang pang malimig na PALAMIG. Habang nagbabasa ng MAGASIN, sa tapat ng 68 DR.SIXTO ANTONIO AVENUE,may POLICEWOMAN na nanghuhuli sa SOUTH SUPERHIGHWAY,kasi daw nabugbog si HEY JAY. Nakita ko nga si Paraluman na sumasayaw ng ANG HULING EL BIMBO. At niyaya nya ako.sabi ko sa kanya SUNTOK SA BUWAN! Sabi nya naman..TUWING UMUULAN na nga lang kita makapiling at SEMBREAK, KAILAN pa?! Paglabas ng MASELANG BAHAGHARI. Sinabihan ba naman akong TORPEDO,kaya nag RUN BARBI RUN na ako. HA HA HA ayaw ko kasing maging KALIWETE. Baka kase umiyak si JULIE TEARJERKY malalaman mo na lang kinabukasan nag kalat ang SPOLARIUM dyan sa paligid mo! Pero WALANG NAGBAGO kahit nag SUPERPROXY si Francis M.na kaibigan ni Ely Buendia noon MINSAN.SINO SA ATIN man ang nauna,kitakits pa rin tayo sa dulo.PEACE IT TOGETHER para kay Kiko sa POORMAN’S GRAVE.
