A clip from one of my favorite "guilty pleasure" shows, "Are You Being Served?" In memory of Mollie Sugden, who, I've just learned, has sadly passed.

It began with finding, "Sleazoid Express," at the library of all places. It feels all kinds of wrong, but I just can't look away! Underbelly's are interesting, what can I say?

Come to think of it, I don't think it ever occured to me to wonder what "Yellow Ledbetter" was about.
I just stumbled upon this and I thought I'd share it.

Look at these Firebird hood birds! If I was forced to pick one at gunpoint today, I suppose I'm feeling kind of Solar Gold. And this commercial is narrated by the same guy who did all those exploitation trailers in the seventies, which is just so fitting!

The Forrest J. Ackerman auction is upon us. Kind of a bummer, but it's nice to fantasize about winning some of these goodies. Its worth taking the time to sift through the collection, there are plenty of covetables.

I'm reining in my angst, and maybe it's because I saw some pretty great grindhouse films last night which were tainted with relentless misplaced hipster laughter. Yes, rape and incest are hilarious, aren't they, dudes... Anyway, love the concept, "Look at this Fucking Hipster."

It's a 1958 interview between himself and Mike Wallace. Huxley warns of the dangers of technology, over-population, and the problems of survival and freedom in America. Follow this link to the article by George Dvorsky, as well as parts one and two.

Pull yourselves together for 36hrs of navigating the back-roads from San Francisco to Yuma. I was hoping to do the Baha 1000, but this may be just the thing to appease my itch for mad-caper insanity! The Rental Car Rally.

"While on an international business trip, you are kidnapped and held for ransom. A terrorist attack closes the business district and you find yourself in a fix. How do you stay alive? How do you get to safety on your own? This class provides leading-edge skills to civilians who live and work in challenging urban environments or in urban centers that may destabilize during a crisis. Topics covered include covert movement (day vs. night), the judicious use of caches, understanding urban baseline movement and urban awareness training, the use of urban disguises and false papers/identification, lock picking, escaping from unlawful custody, obtaining and driving local transportation, the use of "specialized" urban gear, and instruction on how to develop urban escape and evasion go-bags, etc. A one day urban escape scenario is held the final day of class."

Okay, so Robby actually took the picture. And it was his idea... But I was there, and I sent it in to "Coast to Coast AM!" I may be giving away a little too much, but it is my favorite radio program. (I'm so proud)! And here's the series...

They expect 300 titles to be availabele by the end of the year, with about 20 titles becoming available a month. Does this mean we'll never get the special feature goodies for Freebie and the Bean? I have mixed feelings about this. Explore The Warner Archive, via Technicolor Dreams.

A generation of Brits, now all grown up, are realizing they've been had. Someone was having a great time sneaking tons of sexual innuendo into the popular 70's children's show. Yes, Randall and Martin, I see what you mean.
"Outerbridge was one of the few masters of the tri-carbro-color process, a technique used to produce highly saturated color prints. The process was laborious and each print could take up to 9 1/2 hours to create because the photographer had to develop and meticulously align three separate exposures of the same image." Follow this link to a gallery of images from his underappreciated era.

Just fantasizing. Browse some of their other links, including what I like to call "children of the pod-people," and the "re-fab" trailer-- especially heartening for those of us thinking about giving up city life for a humble piece of sand rock under a tree in the desert. Via Freshome.

One could spend hours reading the descriptions to some of these titles, such as "Assignment Munich (1972) - Roy Scheider and Robert Reed mystery craziness."
I just kind of had to pick one at random for you, because, really, how can one choose? And some of you, you know who you are, might like to know that they carry "Freebie and the Bean." All of the titles are up for the taking. Quality of said titles may be questionable.

A slamming "luxury house," from the Paris firm, Jouin Manku. "...Nine bedrooms, two dens, a family kitchen and a private dining area, a private library, a game room, a study, a foyer, a formal dining room, a ballroom, a chapel, 21 bathrooms, a swimming pool, indoor parking, two guest suites and guest parking."

The title of the book says it all. Here's a link to the game in which you try to keep up with Oliver Reeds' bartending-- underwhelming in reflection of what it must have really been like at a barstool in the presence of these Englishmen. The full scoop is at Cinema Retro. For MD, sadly you're not gonna get much closer than this.
