It looks like the same car going by twice. And that could mean only one thing — Bugs Bunny was the driver.

I can’t stop re-watching this. Prince and the new-minted Revolution, featuring Wendy Melvoin, perform Purple Rain for the first time in public, at First Ave. in Minneapolis. Captured via mobile recording truck, this version, with edits and overdubs described in onscreen annotations to the video, was eventually released on the Purple Rain album. I wish I knew the source of the video, and of the excellent notes. Many thanks to all.

Long, longer, longest summer for Arna

Heartbreakingly good.

Chester E. Macduffee next to his newly patented, 250 kilo diving suit, 1911.
A rather curious design for a diving suit. It seems apparent that Chester did not take into account the weight of his invention. This suit would drop to the bottom of the ocean like a lead zeppelin leaving its occupant completely trapped. Even Houdini wouldn’t be able to escape this device.

Don’t all deep-sea diving suits “drop to the bottom of the ocean?” Isn’t that the point? Those firehose-y  diving suits (heavy canvas shell lined with rubber, with brass fittings for the helmet) include belts with lead weights to counteract the buoyancy of seawater. This suit probably wouldn’t be very buoyant, but I don’t see how that (in itself) would render it useless. It looks like the suit (and its occupant) would be lowered via the suspension chain, and hauled back up the same way.
P.S. The suit looks like one of Marvel’s Celestials.
