Notice Anything -- Relevant ....?

Postby CaryMG on Tue Aug 24, 2010 3:54 pm

I just finished watching "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" yesterday.
A watershed moment for hacker movies.

In one scene, I noticed something -- .... interesting hanging on the wall.

See if you can spot it ....

By the by, thanks to you, this image is now the wallpaper of my iPad.
Not the lockscreen.
That's reserved for the Apple logo.
The "rainbow" one.
You know -- the real one ?

i have one from a long time ago. it's nothing special. on the reverse side it has a printing of a guy and a tombstone with the name honey on it. i guess it was a poster for bobby goldsboro's honey. these things were a dime a dozen.

HONEY

(Bobby Russel)
See the tree, how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late
'Cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life's an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

I got it!

I have been infatuated with that poster ever since I saw it in this post. I bought it on ebay last week. These posters were printed on heavy stock paper by Sparta Graphics in 1967. On the back is the Bobby Goldsboro promotion, but there is no connection with the Airplane. It will be hanging above by bed as soon as a find a poster frame big enough.
