Elvis stops for Gas
Elvis’ red sports car in the film is a one-of-a-kind 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray concept car. Originally silver in color, this car was the design inspiration for the “C2” generation of Corvettes (1963 – 1967), which took the name “Stingray” from this vehicle.
Clambake was a 1967 movie starring Elvis Presley, and co-strarring Shelly Fabares, Bill Bixby, and Will Hutchins.
A wealthy young man, Scott Heyward (Elvis Presley) wants to experience life outside of his privileged upbringing. When he meets Tom Wilson (Hutchins), an earnest water-skiing instructor, Scott offers to trade places with him. As Tom warms up to the good life, Scott gets used to a less luxurious existence and falls for Dianne Carter (Shelley Fabares), who, ironically, is hoping to meet a rich man. Sticking to his humble guise, Scott tries to woo Dianne without the benefit of his true status.
I saw this movie when it came out in 1967. I was just 9 years old and at that age movies like this; James Bond 007 films, One Million Years B.C. starring the vivacious Raquel Welsh, and Sinbad The Sailor mesmerized me. It’s totally different weeing movies in theaters on the big screen when you’re an adult and when you are a child, in your mind every new and exciting new thing is so much more magical in your child mind. The older you get the feeling dissipates, but I remember still getting that feeling on my first trip to Europe, especially in Rome as a young man of 27, I still felt the magic and euphoria of a child. The place I watched mostly all these movies was Saturday and Sunday matinees at the famed Riviloi Theater in Rutherford, New Jersey,
“BYE BYE ODELL” !!!
“You Won’t Be Missed”
Not by This Guy, nor a Couple Million other Giant Fans who felt as I did, that Odell Beckham Jr. was a Over Rated, Over Paid, disruptive Diva, and the New York Football Giants will be much better off without him and the ridiculously insane salary they were going to pay him 93 Million Dollars over 5 years. T,hank goodness the Giants came to their senses, realized that Odell’s Cons far out weighed his Pros, they figured they’d be better off without him and his high-priced salary, no more distractions with Odell’s ridiculous antics and the Giants can get back to Winning again.
Bye Bye Odell, good luck. and Giants fans might look forward to having a winning season this year after thee Two Worst Seasons in New York Giant History. The Giants were Pitiful and embarrassing. Let’s put all that behind us, and do what the Giants do best when they’re in their Groove, and that winning NFL Football games.
PS … Thanks again to the Giants for drafting Saquon Barkely last year. And Thank You Saquon for treating Giant fans to a superb Rookie Season. You were one of the few shining stars in a horrible season for the NY Giants. I was hoping the Goants would draft, and they did. And I was hoping you’d have a good year, as though college football players often play very well in college, their talents don’t always translate well to the NFL, but you did, and had a remarkable Rookie Season (Rookie of The Year). Bravo Saquon.

Dustin Hoffman in MIDNIGHT COWBOY
Midnight Cowboy is a 1969 American buddy drama film. Based on the 1965 novel of the same name by James Leo Herlihy, the film was written by Waldo Salt, directed by John Schlesinger, and stars Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman, with notable smaller roles being filled by Sylvia Miles, John McGiver, Brenda Vaccaro, Bob Balaban, Jennifer Salt, and Barnard Hughes. Set in New York City, Midnight Cowboy depicts the unlikely friendship between two hustlers: naive prostitute Joe Buck (Voight), and ailing con man “Ratso” Rizzo (Hoffman).
The film won three Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. Midnight Cowboy is the only X-rated film ever to win Best Picture (though such a classification no longer exists), and was the first LGBT Best Picture winner. It has since been placed 36th on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest American films of all time, and 43rd on its 2007 updated version.
In 1994, Midnight Cowboy was deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

My New Favorite Slice of PIZZA in New York
It’s The Soho Square at PRINCE STREET PIZZA
Pepperoni Square Slice Prince Street Pizza … Well, of Course I still Love the Masterful Pizza by The Great DOM DeMARCO who I have felt makes thee # 1 Best PIZZA in all of NEW YORK ever since I had my first slice there in 2008, “I just Love IT.” But in all honesty, I have to say, since I can hardly ever make it all the way out to (once in 2 Yrs) Avenue J in BROOKLYN to DiFara Pizza, and then once I get there, have to wait on line for an hour and a half or more before I get some Pizza, it’s a bit too much for someone who lives in Manhattan and doesn’t have a car to ride around, so I don’t know if I can say it’s my favorite slice anymore. In fact, I know it’s not my favorite slice anymore, that honor goes to the awesomely delicious slice called the S”oh Square at Prince Street Pizza in the former spot of the really true first “Ray’s Pizza,” of Famous Ray’s Pizza fame when several Pizzerias around town claimed that they were the Original Ray’s, but were not. So, yes this spot has major New York Pizza History Chops, having the the real any truly 1st Ray’s Pizza opened here in 1959 by Ralph Cuomo, and now with the phenomenal success of Prince Street Pizza with it’s insanely popular slice, The Soho Square that has hundreds of people lining up on the perpetual line at Prince Street Pizza day and night 7 days a week, people just love it, and I’m one of them. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still love the Pizza at DiFara Pizza by the great Dom DeMarco, and I still feel he makes thee Best Pizza in all of New York, and thus the Best in America, it’s just not my favorite for reasons I’ve already explained, of which anyone I’m sure would agree that it’s just too far away for Manhattanites, and then there’s that long wait on top of it. “Sorry Dom.”
So now since I’ve discovered the Soho Square at PRINCE STREET PIZZA its “Mind Blowingly Awesome Taste,” yes it is without question my new favorite slice in all the city of New York. It’s a perfect slice of SICILIAN PIZZA topped with Top quality Pepperoni from Salumeria Bielesse, and a whole lot of the stuff to boot. No they don’t skimped on the tasty Pepperoni at all. “Thank You Guys.” And the fact that I can walk there in about 15 minutes,as opposed to having to take a whole half a day to do a trip at DiFara, the Soho Square is my new favorite slice.
