Sophia Fox And The Lewistown Wig-Wags

Another August post. I know this post’s 2 topics don’t really go together, but I like them, so I’m doing this one for you now. In Lewistown, Montana, there once stood 2 Wig-Wag signals on West Water Street. Down below is a photo of them from 2002. The line was then operated by BNSF. At the time of the photo above being taken, there had been rumors that Lewistown did not want tracks in town anymore, and thus the trains only came to Lewistown about once a week. However, in 2003, a storm washed away part of the track, and […]

I know you were hoping for more, but I’ve been too interested in other things. Well anyway, in 1916, the Goldwyn Pictures studio filmed the lion logo for the first time.

The Boonta Eve Classic on Tatooine with Sebulba […]

The Disney Semi-Features

My first post of September! It’s hard to believe that now I’m in 7th grade and that next year I’ll be 13 years old. Also, due to class throughout most of the week days, for now I’ll do posts ONLY on the weekends. First, here are some summarized Lilo and Stitch trailers: Beauty and the Beast: Belle and Beast begin their ballroom dance sequence as normal. But the the camera pans to the angels on the ceiling, Stitch is seen crawling across the painting. Watching Belle and Beast, he crawls onto the chandelier, which breaks and falls. Beast notices, dives, […]
