But then there is this one:
I can barely contain myself it's so cute.
And then, the musical cats are the best:
Make sure you watch it until the very end. The cat cameo is truly genius.

This basement was decorated during 1970 and early 1971 in Peoria, Illinois, in the house I grew up in, and where my parents still live. It was that period where '60s hippie and countercultural concepts had filtered down to people like my open-minded Republican mom. She picked out everything--wallpaper, furniture, light fixtures. Her decorator had a field day, because it was so far out. As a kid, I thought it was really cool, and so did my friends. My parents used to entertain a lot, and I had parties there in grade school and high school. It's also where I did my homework!
It became outdated rather quickly, but except for the fabulous red shag carpet (later damaged and replaced) it has remained intact for almost 40 years.
Now it's a period piece, and if this basement was in Sherman Oaks or Brentwood it would probably be used for authentic location filming.
And I actually want these chairs! Also, the foil wallpaper is just too amazing.Here is Jon in the bar, looking adorable I must say.
