Real mad I can’t find the gif of Kevin Spacey playing Walter Matthau auditioning for Star Wars in an SNL parody (got all that?) that someone made for me a few years ago. That was the first, last, and only time I ever asked anyone to make me anything, that stupid gif was my soul (I’m a very shallow person, obviously), and now I’ve lost it.
Well, that’s all right. Capaldi’s not exactly the B-team.
Carnival glass originated as a glass called ‘Iridill’, produced beginning in 1908 by the Fenton Art Glass Company (founded in 1905). Iridill was inspired by the fine blown art glass of such makers as Tiffany and Steuben, but did not sell at the anticipated premium prices and was subsequently discounted. After these markdowns, Iridill pieces were used as carnival prizes.
Iridill became popular and very profitable for Fenton, which produced many different types of items in this finish, in over 150 patterns. Fenton maintained their position as the largest manufacturer and were one of very few makers to use a red coloured glass base for their carnival glass. After interest waned in the late 1920s, Fenton stopped producing carnival glass for many years. In more recent years, due to a resurgence in interest, Fenton re-started production of carnival glass until its closure in 2007.
Once this queue finishes popping, Changes Will Be Made for the furthering of my peace of mind—always in short supply—and y’all will have a new follower.
I’ll try to make the name obviously signify “me” but it’ll depend on whether 69AndyGibbFan4Ever is already taken. And, looks like I’m good on that, or would be if I hadn’t just posted it here, which kinda defeats the purpose of a name change. Damnit, I have got to be better about thinking things through.
ETA: Super-pissed that someone’s already got Queen of the Supermarket. That’s my dad’s (current) favorite Springsteen song. Woulda been perfect. Oh, well, probably better because 40-somethings should not have to worry about But What If My Dad Finds My Tumblr? That’s just sad.
