Thanks, Mr. SCSU, 

 

I am sorry to hear that you had the same problem too. It really is a shame. Woo.. if misery loves company, then I am in good shape around here.  

 

Thanks for the tips on how to clean up my missing pictures. I may look into options for a different way to post pics again, someday. (if only to try and clean up my mess on a few posts here and possibly in a couple of other threads I enjoy looking at now and then) But wowsa.. that would take a heap of time to go through and recreate them all. So I don't think it will happen any time soon. I am afraid I have too many irons in my fire right now to take on a project like that. It will have to be something for me to check into on  a rainy day (or snowy day.. some kinda day.. ha) sometime in the future, perhaps. 

 

And I  am glad that my photos are all still around SOMEwhere. But thankfully almost all of the pictures I have on photobucket are ones I  also have saved to my computer, so I am not too worried about losing them (I usually only put them on photobucket just for the purpose of posting here) but I appreciate the tip about downloading.  I may go through and double check some of my albums just to make sure I have everything I want to keep . 

 

It is just a shame that so many posts for everyone with a photobucket acct are all going to be held hostage this way.   I am SO happy that it appears Kyle must have used a different method for posting his pics here. Let's hope his lovely posters and pictures are able to stick around for everyone to enjoy.

Well.. sadly it appears that my free photobucket account is being held prisoner (by photobucket.. ha!) and the access I had to post pics from there has been removed unless I want to upgrade. But what is worse is that I also see now that all the pics I had posted on here previously (when the account was free) also appear to be lost too.. at least for viewing purposes on this website. And the images I posted have now been replaced by an annoying announcement by photobucket to update my account with them (from a free account to a paying one)  Now THAT is really disappointing (at least to me) because it has made a mess out of this thread in particular from some of the posts I have made to honor Kyle's efforts to showcase some really wonderful vintage images and artwork of our men and women in uniform and the armed services in general. 

 

So I apologize for all the "dopey looking" little announcements you will see to please upgrade my photobucket account.. but alas.. it is not in my budget to pay for such things, so I won't be doing that. And rather than go through this entire message board one post at a time to edit and delete all the pictures that USED to be there... I will just say... please enjoy all the posts from Kyle.. who is the one who started this thread in the first place. His posts are the ones that I wanted you to see here anyway, as they REALLY are worth viewing.. and you can just scroll right on through any of mine that have the annoying photobucket messages. :)

Same thing happened to me. However, all pictures you uploaded to photobucket should still be there, and you can download them to your computer. So rather than delete all those "please update your account" images, you can use another photo service, like imgur.com, upload your photos there, and put them back in this thread. Admittedly, it will take some time, as I am doing this now with one of my threads. But if you just do a little now and then, it can get done. Now we just have to hope that Kyle's pictures don't disappear.

 

Edit: I see SueSue responded as well.

Hello dear Sue Sue.. sorry to hear I am not alone (in the photobucket dilemma.)  I took a look on your thread... I am glad you found a good alternative. For my part.. I am SO happy that Kyle's posters were not lost. Boy.. that was the first thing I checked when I saw that mine were gone. What a relief to see that all his hard work is still able to be enjoyed! :)

Rohanaka, I'm so sorry. The same thing happened to all my photos in my photobucket account. I am just glad that Kyle's photos are still accessible on this forum. Take heart, dear girl. The lovely comments you made are still readable. :-)

Just wanted to bring this thread up for another year. It truly is something special and it is my most favorite memory of our dear friend, Kyle ( Mr. In Hollywood, as I liked to call him)

 

He spent a lot of time and effort in choosing the various themes and images each year as he developed this thread. And I am very happy to encourage others, who may not have looked through it all, to start at the beginning and work your way forward. You won't be disappointed. It truly is something special.

 

God bless the memory of our fine men and women who served and gave their all on behalf of this nation.. and God bless the memory of our friend, Kyle in Hollywood. You are missed, sir. 

 

Happy Memorial Day, one and all.

Came across this announcement today for a special exhibit coming to the WW1 Museum in Kansas City. Many of the images posted here in this thread can be found at the museum (and it sounds like there will be even more, with this special event) It put me in mind of this thread.. and of our dear friend, Mr. In Hollywood. He is the one who started this thread as a salute to a special  that TCM ran that year as a part of their tribute to Memorial Day. And he was so good to continue the thread for several more years after that, as a special favor to me and several others, in honor of the holiday.. and to showcase the many wonderful images he was able to find for us. He spent a lot of time and effort on choosing the images posted here.. and they really are something special.  

 

If you have not ever viewed this thread in its entirety, I recommend starting at page one and just take your time.. it is well worth a look. 

 

Meanwhile, here is the link to the special event at the WW1 Museum I mentioned... for anyone who might be interested.

Can't let this weekend go by without remembering this very special thread and the man who made it happen. I am very thankful to remember his friendship and all the hard work he put into all the images collected here. I hope others will take the time to scroll back through these pages and enjoy everything he posted in honor of this special holiday. It truly is something worth viewing.  

 

God bless the memories of the men and women who have paid the highest price in their service to our country. And God bless the memory of Kyle in Hollywood too. He is dearly missed

Thanks, Ro, for remembering Kyle on this special day.

 

It's just not the same here without him but I like to think he is always with us, watching over us.

With Memorial Day Weekend right around the corner, I find myself thinking again on our dear friend, Mr. "In Hollywood" (or Kyle.. as the rest of you may remember him) and how much he is missed. 

 

This particular thread is a personal favorite of mine and holds a lot of special meaning,  not just for memories of a dearly departed friend.. but just because of the wonderful tribute it became for the celebration of Memorial Day,  and for all the very special images that are collected here. 

 

If you are able.. be sure to take some time and scroll through the pages and you'll see what I mean. He really put a lot of thought and effort into each collection he did over the years. 

 

Happy Memorial Day, one and all.  And to Kyle "in Hollywood" may I just add.. God bless your memory. You are missed, dear sir. :)

Ro,

 

Thank you so much for sharing your trip to the WWI museum with us in this thread. I think Kyle would have gotten a big kick out of reading about your trip and seeing the lovely pictures.

 

Have been thinking a great deal about him this weekend and wishing he was still with us. I found this image while surfing for something else and wanted to share it with him.

Well, I could spend all day posting more pics.. but I do not want to detract from the special images that are what this thread is all about.

 

So instead, I will stop with the ones I have posted already and just add that once again.. I just want to wish you all an early, and very Happy Memorial Day next week. I hope you'll remember to take time out to recall the reason for the upcoming holiday and be sure to say a word of thanks and respect to those who gave so much for our nation and it's freedom.

 

And thanks again, to our dear Mr.In Hollywood, for creating this special Memorial Day thread (and thanks too, to everyone, for letting me share these pics with you)

A large wall display showing the various "flying aces" of WWI and the confirmed victories they won in flight.(and yes, von Richthofen aka: the "Red Baron" was there.. just like in the "Snoopy Song", ha.. eighty men really did die because of his success as a pilot.. we counted the little red planes to find out.. wowsa)

Checking out a reproduction of a German Trench. Turns out they were the most effective in constructing and using trenches throughout the war.Meanwhile.. about the LAST place you'd want to be was inside a FRENCH trench. According to the info we read, they were very ineffective, poorly designed and just generally a miserable place to hang out.. with or without a war going on all around you. (who knew??) :)

And for all the Will Roger's Fans (Miss Goddess, et al)  They had a really interesting exhibit that showed images of the different well known "faces" of the times and then the image would change and show a quote from that person. I had a really (really) hard time getting a good picture of any of it, because the images kept changing, ha. But I was finally able to get one of Will Rogers' face.. before it switched over. The quote they had displayed from Mr. Rogers:You can't say civilization don't advance, however, for in every war they kill you in a new way.   

 

A very fitting comment.. considering the technological advances and changing of times that came about just before and all throughout this period of history.

Hello everyone.  With Memorial Day coming up for us next week, I wanted to bring Kyle's Memorial Day thread back up to the forefront again.

 

And I have to say, this particular thread has always been a very special one in my heart for two reasons. First, because it is absolutely FILLED with some truly wonderful images and very moving tributes to our men and women in uniform from days gone by. I also like how each year he went with a different "theme" to tie them all together too.  And second, because I remember the conversations that I had with our dear Mr. "In Hollywood"  here in this thread, over this entire topic. And I also recall the chats he and I shared in private message as well, regarding how special this particular holiday is to me and my family, and how much I appreciated the time it took for him to compile and post all the many wonderful posters and pictures he placed in this thread.

 

And on that note.. I want to bring up his original post for the thread. You can read below how he started the whole thing because of a special that TCM was doing that year in honor of both the 90th Anniversary of the Signing of the Treaty of Versailles and also as a chance to spotlight the National WWI Museum and the Liberty Memorial which is located here in Kansas City.  

 

Here is Kyle's opening post below:  

 

 

This Memorial Day, as the 90th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles approaches, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will honor the soldiers who fought during the war with a special primetime showcase of five outstanding films. The evening will be hosted by TCM?s Robert Osborne and National World War I Museum Vice President Eli Paul.

In that vein, a daily poster gallery of homefront images.

Edited by: hlywdkjk on May 31, 2010 9:31 AM

 

And those are just TWO of the very fine posters you will find in this thread. (I recommend starting at the last page of the thread and reading it in reverse to see them all in order of how he posted them) In fact, there are several years worth of Memorial Day Weekend posts here. The first year's posts were so terrific, I urged him to make this an annual tradition.. and he was kind enough and generous enough with his time to follow through with that.  Yet another reason I have such special memories of  him and this thread. He truly was a very good friend to someone he did not know all that well, to honor my selfish request that way.. and it always meant a lot to me to be able to chat with him over these images posted  here. 

 

So having said all that, I also have to tell you that living here in Kansas City, we have always planned for our family to go visit  the museum I mentioned above. We went once YEARS ago but it was under construction and there was not much to see so we always figured SOMEDAY we'd go back again. But for whatever reason, we just put it off. We have attended concerts in the park that is outside the museum off and on nearly every Memorial Day Weekend..but time being what it is, it gets away.. and we just never went back to visit the museum itself since they remodeled it several years ago. 

 

So at last I am happy to say, this Spring we finally did. 

 

And may I just tell you, WOW! It is a wonderful tribute to the memories of all those who lived, died, and were affected by World War One (And not just here in the U.S. but all across the world.) It truly was a "World War" and it was an amazing time in history. The museum is absolutely filled with all sorts of exhibits of war memorabilia and artifacts, and details about all aspects leading up to, during, and after the end of the "Great War" and it truly is something special to see. If you are ever in the Kansas City area I highly recommend you stop in for a visit.   

 

And it is almost as interesting on the outside as it is inside the museum. There is a LARGE tower that was erected back in 1921 (with an eternal flame atop it as well) and it is quite a fixture in the KC landscape. You can go up to the top of the tower too, and look out over the city.. but alas the day we visited it was VERY (very) windy and one of the security doors down below the tower actually broke due to the wind (I am not kidding.. it was windy, ha) So they closed the tower to repair it. And all we were able to do was walk around outside. But it was still quite a view.

 

The museum itself was originally much smaller, but was since added onto and completely redone in the last several years to what is now a truly inspiring and very fitting remembrance of the historic significance that one would expect be given to such an important event in our nation's history.  Here is a link to a website that will tell you more about the museum's history: http://theworldwar.o...um-and-memorial

 

Now I have to tell you, that all throughout the museum are walls and walls of posters.. some that are even originals.. of the same type that Kyle posted here in this thread and as we walked along touring the various exhibits, I kept noticing them,  and of course, my thoughts continued to return to this particular thread.. "Hey, that is one of the posters I remember from that TCM thread that Kyle In Hollywood posted" :)  It was fun to remember him as we went about our day.

 

So in honor of our dear Mr. In Hollywood.. and because I feel certain he would  have enjoyed seeing some of these images himself... for the next several posts, I hope you will not mind some rohanaka family photos of the National WWI Memorial as we took our little tour last month. Thank you for letting me share all this with  you. 

 

And may God bless the memory of our dear TCM friend, Kyle Kersten.. as we look back here and enjoy all the many images he posted from so many years past, and smile.  

 

Happy Memorial Day Everyone.

Hello there Mr. In Hollywood...



I hope you will forgive me for taking this liberty.. but I have not had as much time to hang out here these days as I would like.. so I have not been able to check in with you first to get permission. But I wanted to pop in here very quickly and bump this thread.



There are some truly wonderful images in honor of the holiday here and.. and I would just like to use this chance to also say a word of thanks to our men and women in the military for their service to our country.. and may God bless the memory of those who have gone before.



I hope folks will take some time (as they are able) and scroll back through some of these pages. I know it was a lot of work for you to put this all together, so did not want to put you on the spot again this year.. but for the last few years I have truly enjoyed the images you have posted here and wanted to bring this thread up so folks could enjoy them again.









Thanks for letting me share this here.. and thanks again sir.. for all the effort you took in creating it.

Hi Kyle,

I can't BELIEVE I just came across this thread now and that I missed it over Memorial Day Weekend. But I guess better late than never! I just wanted to say to you, once again, how much I appreciate and love your image threads no matter what the topic may be. I still miss your daily "censored" thread and, of course, this Memorial thread carries special meaning. You have a keen eye for beautiful art, simply wonderful taste and we at the TCM message boards are always the better for your wonderful postings. Warm regards to you.
