Harvey and the Smiley Face

 Harvey & Smiley

A few facts from this site. Harvey Ball, a graphic artist from Worcester, Massachusetts, created the smiley face (not Forrest Gump!) in 1963. The State Mutual life Assurance Company hired him to design a logo to cheer up the employees because the company was not doing well. Harvey wanted to do a simple symbol that will bring smile to their face.

YouTube Woodstock

If you are a former hippie who went to Woodstock in 1969, you might recognize these videos from YouTube. Woodstock took place in Bethel, NY in August 15-17 1969. There were 500,000 people attending the festival. I would like to mention that a while back I watched a wonderful documentary called Woodstock. It was pretty long, but it captured the essence of those three days. I strongly recommend that you watch the movie if you really want to know what it was like, or want to reminisce it . By the way, the famous poster was design by Arnold Skolnick.


Secret Fun Spot

I have fun looking up at all the cool retro stuff. This site is a bit different from other retro sites that I've seen. It is ort of campy. The person who does this site is an author as well. His name is Kirk Demarais. There is some info about his prank book called "LIFE OF THE PARTY' A VISUAL HISTORY OF S.S ADAMS MAKERS OF PRANKS & MAGIC FOR 100 YEARS" (that's a long title). Take a look at his blog too
