Thumbs up Beyond the Sea

Just saw this last night - good flick!

At one point where things aren't going to well for Bobby Darin (such as learning that his sister was actually his mother) he moves out of his house and into what appears to be maybe an early to mid-60's model International Land Yacht parked on the California coastline. Several good shots of it, including a perspective shot of it in the background, while he's in the foreground chatting by a campfire with family friend Charlie (played by Bob Hoskins).

Darin aficionados may not be too impressed, but I thought Spacey did a fantastic job on this film.

EDIT: Upon further consideration that Airstream looked much more like a 70's vintage than a 60's....

Currently reading "A Salty Piece of Land" by Jimmy Buffett...yes the singer. The main character is Tulley Mars from one of his earlier novels about a Wyoming cowboy who lived in an Airstream on a ranch. Not a movie, yet, but it is pretty good fiction.

Yesterday's NCIS had an Airstream. It was toward the end and appeared for no more than a split second. (Since we'd taped the program anyway -- had to deal with guests at the park, so we keep a tape in the machine at all times -- we were able to replay the microsegment several times to make sure of what we'd seen. Alas, with such a brief glance, it was impossible to tell year, model, etc.

We think we saw a completely smashed Airstream, flattened nearly on it's side, on CNN last night as they talked about the weather out West.

Poor White Trash

I just bought a copy of Poor White TRash on DVD for four bucks at Half.com.

I'll probably want my money back

Has anyone seen those vinyl stickers on Ebay that say "White Trash Inside" that look like the "Intel Inside" logo?

If the general public had more sense of humor, I might do it.
Heck, I may do it ANYWAY.

If the Prado dam breaks, we may be seeing pictures of "Inland RV" floating away on CNN tonight.

Watching the Vikings and the Eagles today, there was a Chevy Silverado commercial with a flash of an Airstream. Commercial starts with several black trucks driving through a tunnel, image switches to a truck pulling through a sheet of water, in the background you can make out what looks like an AS. Just before the jump to the next sequence, the front window of an AS appears through the water. Love DVR and 1/15th speed.

Bell South has a commercial for 995 that shows two gentlemen playing cards under the awning of a vintage airstream.

Blue Collar TV

Last night I saw a show called "Blue Collar TV" on . . . TV. It stars Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and "Larry the Cable Guy". Anyway, in the opening "credits" there was a picture of Jeff Foxworthy in front of some sort of Airstream. It went by too fast for me to really identify it.

I used to see a few Airstreams being blown up in the movies and on TV. Don't remember the titles. I sold my 76 Sov. that I restored to an actor in CA a few years ago. Hope he didn't blow it up too!

Snow Dogs

I'm watching Snow Dogs on ABC right now. There is an Airstream in this movie. It takes place in fictitious Tolketna, Alaska. Cuba Gooding and Charles Coburn are the stars.

Just saw an A/S take a rough ride down a hill in "A Perfect World." At least it didn't get all torn up and it came to a fairly gentle stop without hitting any trees.

Snow Dogs

I too saw part of Snow Dogs this evening. I think the Airstream is either a '74 or '75 25' Tradewind.
