Orson Welles’ The Stranger Presented for First Time In Newly Restore HD at Shalin Liu Performance Center


Rockport will play host to the world premiere of Orson Welles’ legendary film, The Stranger, to be presented for the first time ever in exquisite, newly-restored high-definition (HD), Sunday, Oct. 10 at Shalin Liu Performance Center.

Behind this unique premiere is local resident Philip Hopkins, co-owner of Film Chest, with offices in New York City, Bridgeport, Conn., and Rockport. The company specializes in the restoration, digitizing, distribution and archiving of older and vintage film footage – including many well-known feature-length movies and TV series – with clients that include Turner Classic Movies and American Movie Classics.

For the past six months, Hopkins and his company have been working to painstakingly upgrade and digitally-restore the 1946 Orson Welles classic in HD for the first time. Hopkins is available for interviews.

United States Coast Guard 47′ Motor Lifeboat Video

Taken from the dock

From The USCG Website-
The 47′ motor lifeboat is designed as a first response rescue resource in high seas, surf & heavy weather environments. They are built to withstand the most severe conditions at sea and are capable of effecting a rescue at sea even under the most difficult circumstances. They are self-bailing, self-righting, almost unsinkable, and have a long cruising radius for their size. It is the replacement for the aging 44′ MLB fleet.
Length: 47 feet
Special Characteristics: Self-righting
(if overturned, the vessel will return to an upright position in 30 seconds or less)

Blue Dutch Oven At Alexandra’s Bread Co

You wanna know what’s great about this blue Dutch oven that is for sale at Alexandra’s Bread Co for $22.95?  Besides is nice heft and solid feel, it is not so huge that you would need to cook for an army to use it.  Most Dutch ovens are huge and force you to cook huge but this one is about half the size of one you would normally see and allows you to cook a meal for 4 instead of 25.  Head down to Alexandra’s.  Pick up a  couple of cobbles (they come out at 9:30AM) and check out all of Alexandras cool finds that she sells.  I’m telling you if this bakery thing doesn’t work out for her she could easily walk right into being a buyer for a department store that wanted to add timeless houseware lines to their offerings.  Guaranteed to turn an old line failing retailer into a hip timeless retailer in no time.  She has a good eye.  I’m just saying.




The steam in the window means there’s some baking goin’ on!




Check Out Alexandra’s Bread Company Slide Show Pictures I’ve Taken Over The Years Here

Everything you read above this line is from a post I composed yesterday before I went to the Mall with the family.

What you will see below is what I’m adding this morning at 7:14AM

We happened to go into Williams Sonoma (the Bean’s favorite store) yesterday afternoon and featured in the front of the store are these Staub Cookware Oval Ovens for get this- $200 ON SALE



I’m telling you right now- get down to Alexandra’s, buy yourself the heavy duty Blue Dutch oven for $22.95 and every time you see some dope buying a Staub Cookware $200 Oval Oven feel good about how smart you are for not getting sucked into the overpriced cookware trap.
