I love the "We do not have a dinosaur" one. I love how Dorothea Lange his photography. A lot of grit, a little glamour, and full honesty.

I love those type of "off the beaten path Americana" photos. It reminds me of living out west and going on road trips and seeing all of these middle of nowhere towns with dirt roads and one motel. I wish i could capture the images in my mind on film like this guy!

Part of me thinks these are incredibly cool, and the other part knows these would make settings for some very, very creepy movies.

I LOVED that episode! The girl had NO IDEA how inappropriate she was. Oh and btw- My parents used to take us to BOTH of those drive-in when we were littles. Who knew they could look so cool.
