Buzz Corry

I just opened trunk number one, and this is the first thing that popped out.  A Buzz Corry : Color Book.

Wow. Talk about a completely different era. According to Google Book Search, “The classic television series Space Patrol was a stellar success for ABC from 1950 to 1955.”

Needless to say, it’s not actually a possession of my own childhood. It’s a “find” me and my first college roommate (Daaave!) came across when we opened an empty luggage trunk while searching an abandoned, condemned, and possibly haunted mansion’s attic at 2 AM in early 1989.

Yeah. That one’s a long story.

Anyhow, I color corrected most of the pages in Photoshop because they are all a funky shade of very-very-old-paper yellow. I left the first page as-is so you can see the book’s “real” condition. The last page of this book fell off after I scanned it, and overall it’s in really rough shape.

Here’s some links where you can download a full copy. The SAMPLE is just a copy of the yellow front page. The FULL is the entire thing scanned and color corrected in PDF format.

Project 14

I have 14 Seward trunks.

14. Full. Seward. Trunks.

That’s just not right.

These trunks are full of the things I accumulated in the first 21 years of my life. Dr. Seuss books, plastic action figures, 33 LP records, shogun warriors, steel toys, view masters, matchbox cars, transformers, cassette walkmans… and somewhere, in one of those trunks, a stuffed penguin named Opus.

Project 14 is my attempt to sift through it all. Photograph and post everything interesting. Keep the good things. Toss the junk.

And to find that stuffed penguin.
