CAVEAT: I'm only happy about this one because I like to pretend that the ceiling caved in two seconds after this photo was taken killing all three where they stood.

I like this photo, not totally unlikely, but still a whole lot of famous. Saw first on an ILM thread, I think.

Just realizing that Jimmy Carter has outlived two of the three Bee Gees (and Barry outta watch his back).

One of the weirdest things about that Patti Labelle clip is that Pee Wee Herman is the only one who can dance at all.

Jimmy Carter is a goldmine. Here he is with Diana Ross singing "happy birthday" on the occasion of his 54th birthday:
https://i.pinimg.com/736x/3b/81/b3/3b81b3a63c739690e50eca300df81b7e.jpg

Which leads me to Jimmy Carter's inaugural ball, from a year earlier, which has Bette Davis, Shirley MacLaine, and some other people:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CY4j1uw7YUk

Also in attendance were John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Mohammed Ali! But they didn't perform. What an odd line-up.

I was still a tiny baby when Carter was president so I have no idea what he was like, or how he was received. I learn from the internet that he was into rock and roll music:
https://edition.cnn.com/2020/12/29/us/gallery/jimmy-carter-rock-and-roll-president-cnn-films/index.html

The article contains pictures of Jimmy Carter with (a) Crosby, Stills, and Nash (b) Greg Allman (c) Bob Dylan (d) Luciano Pavarotti (e) Johnny Cash (f) Dolly Parton (g) Willie Nelson (h) Emmylou Harris (g) Dizzy Gillespie (h) Charles Mingus (i) James Brown nb some of those people are not rock and roll musicians.

And yet baby boomers hate him. Whatever you think about him, he had the funk:

All of those photos let me to the official Twitter account of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, which is presumably carefully curated to make him look good, but he does come across as an awkward but well-meaning man:
https://twitter.com/CarterLibrary/media

I learn that his daughter Amy's pet Siamese cat was called Misty Malarky Ying Yang. That would probably not be acceptable nowadays, partially because of the name and partially because Americans hate cats.

Big late 1970s energy:
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FUU5ESZXEAApvyh?format=jpg&name=900x900

There's a photo of him shaking hands with George Lucas! He saw Star Wars three times at the White House. I learn his brother was a drunk who had beer named after him. This is Rosalyn Carter dressed as a monarch butterfly:

Happy Birthday, Captain Trips! Here I am with Jerry Garcia, backstage @remhq in 1989. Jerry was born 80 years ago today, but he seemed apart from time - he just was. And is still, I imagine, somewhere only a dimension away. Bless you, Mr G ♥️🎸♌️ pic.twitter.com/uLbyrVcLgH

Added value being that it happened backstage at an REM show. Too bad Jerry didn't join them for some sweet noodling on "Harborcoat" or something.

Hitchcock's FB post with that pic had a bit more text. Love what Garcia said to him:

I met Jerry and his junior accomplice Bob Weir only once, in Oakland Colosseum. One of his daughters had drawn my work to his attention, and he appeared to have enjoyed the set that The Egyptians and I played that night. “Yeah, man, I could walk all over your music…” was his comment.

Ward Fowler, Thursday, 4 August 2022 12:08 (two weeks ago) link

I guess he meant that he would enjoy soloing over Hitchcock's compositions?
