New front page — JBK bedroom

I’ve changed the front page for October to one of my favorites: Jackie Kennedy’s bedroom.

I’ve continued looking for new photos on the Library of Congress site, the Google Life photos site, and the White House Flickr feed, but there isn’t much new. I have some video captures that were sent to me that I’ve been meaning to add, but there’s not a whole lot that’s really new, just slightly different perspectives.

  1. I saw an interesting article on The Huffington Post you may be interested in (link below) about the modern art the Obamas are putting up in the White House. This includes a new sculpture for the Oval Office and a portrait of Harry S Truman (perhaps to inspire President Obama to get health care done properly, although LBJ would have been a better choice). Would be great to see pictures of some of this redecoration in context, as so far most of the Obama-era pics look a lot like the Bush-era ones.

  2. Anyone looking for a documentary on Camp David…now’s your chance! For a long time I’ve been trying to find a documentary about Camp David, and never could find one until I came across the inbaseline.com website I have listed below. The website gives you details as to what we will see for the DVD. I have tried to contact PBS to try and obtain a copy of it, but no luck. However, recently I purchased a documentary about Camp David, and it seems to be the one that is listed for inbaseline.com To purchase this Camp David documentary, go to the 2nd website I have listed, there you can get it, along with other DVD’s and items. The camp david documentary was made in 1987. It goes through the history of the place to the current time it was made (during the Reagan administration), shows footage and photos that were in the archives, and interviews people about the place. Some people interviewed..President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan, Dick Cheeney, and Helen Thomas. Also shows an illistration of the Camp David grounds.

  3. There is a new batch of WH pix on flickr, but it shows nothing much new of the WH interior. If the Waldorf-Astoria was the WH, we would have a mother lode to work with. You’d think he spent all month there.

    The best I can tell from the shots of the president seated, he is a sloucher — speaking purely about his posture.

  4. I think the Obamas are holding off on any major redecoration, especially in public or semi-public rooms. In the best of times such redecorations tend to be politically risky and during the “Great Recession” that daner is exponentially magnified. However, it does look like the Treaty Room has gotten a new wall covering, although the drapes look like the same ones Bush had installed.
