It is the spring of 1957 and Bobby goes to pick up his date, Carrie.
He's a pretty hip guy with his own car. When he goes to the front door, Carries father answers and invites him in.
'Carrie's not ready yet, so why don't you have a seat?' her dad said.
'That's cool', says Bobby.
Carrie's father asks Bobby what they're planning to do. Bobby replies politely that they will probably just go to the soda shop or a movie.
Carrie's father responds 'why don't you two go somewhere and screw? I hear all the kids are doing it.'
Bobby, is not quite sure he heard correctly, so he asks Carries dad to repeat what was just said.
'Yeah', her dad says, 'Carrie really likes to screw; she'll screw all night if we let her!'
Well, this certainly made Bobby's emotions light up. Now he's REALLY looking forward to the evening.
A few minutes later, Carrie comes downstairs in her little poodle skirt and announces that she's ready to go. Almost breathless with anticipation, Bobby escorts his date out the front door.
About 20 minutes later, Carrie rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her, and screams at her father:
'DAMMIT DADDY!! IT'S CALLED: 'THE TWIST!!''
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
