1990s converse

I could never promise my students employment in the theatre. No one can do that. What I offered my students was a belief in the person they were, at that time, and I wanted to know their stories; I wanted to be a part of their lives; I wanted to see them learn and grow and be happy. I could guarantee them a love of the theatre, of acting, of literature, because I would walk them through it, and show them how I fell in love with things. A lot of students from Juilliard–from all of the schools–chose not to pursue an acting career, but they did not fail: Their lives were improved by their studies. More than anything, I wanted students to know they were being seen; they were being respected; they were being loved; they were supported by someone.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express Vs. The Midnight Express (w/ Jim Cornette)
NWA Main Event
[April 28th, 1990]

No conversation about The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express would be exempt from mentioning their multi-decade feud with The Midnight Express. The teams played off of each other quite like no other, with the flash and flair of The Rock 'N’ Roll Express meeting the rude and calculating Midnight Express. The team of “Sweet” Stan Lane and “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton worked so well because the duo would pick their spots to use their partners to their advantage, whereas RNR would try to stay within the rules. Keep an eye out for how slick Robert Gibson’s flying headscissors is, and how good Lane is at following Ricky Morton to the corner to allow Gibson to reach for a tag, just before knocking him off the apron. Another hot spot is the potato exchange at the 6:40 mark, where Lane and Morton slug the bejesus out of each other. It’s no wonder why these two teams packed screaming crowds in everywhere they went!


Toyota Crown Family Camper, circa 1990. Because the Crown used a separate chassis through many of its generations it made the car suitable for conversion. The Family Camper had an elevating roof and accommodation for two adults and two children. It was available exclusively on the Japanese market but some have been exported

“[George Harrison] was so funny, it’s hard to explain. He was the funniest guy I ever met. Such a keen sense of humor. A lot of fun. A wise person. He really wanted to know the meaning of it all. But at the same time, he was really light-hearted and tremendous fun. [Laughs] Just tremendous fun. And we got along so well. There’s really not a day that I don’t think about him.” - Tom Petty, Conversations With Tom Petty [x]
