To The Moon

Born on this day, Jackie Gleason (1916-1987). Ralph Kramden, great characters, great show, a few actors and simple sets. It was all you needed with Jackie and his cast. Here is part of the episode where Ralph and Norton get a TV. There is a bunch of episodes on you tube.

45 years ago today Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali) shocks the world with a TKO of Sonny Liston to become the Heavyweight Champ. The picture above is when it was announced Liston would not come out for the 7th round. Below is the 1965 rematch and the famous phantom punch.

Terça-feira Gordo?

My company has an office in Brazil, and for some reason we haven't gotten a call from them in the last couple of days. I wonder why?

Does Gabriela Hate Mondays?

Not quite. Gabriela Vergara, stunning Venezuelan model and actress, most recently appearing on Desperate Housewive's spanish version. Thanks for your hard body and well placed freckles.

Sunday Sabbath

For this week's sermon, the wonders and dangers of snow. Snowblind. This performance was in 1978, near the end of the Ozzy years.

Saturday Morning Blues

The Banana Splits. The Ultimate hippie variety show for kids. Bingo (above) was my favorite. My mom said I watched it first run on our B&W TV, but only remember the early 70's reruns, nonetheless one of my alltime favorites.

The Wind Cries For Jimi

When I was around 14 a friend had copy of the Smash Hits album and I was blown away forever. I've been listening to the amazing Hendrix Box Set lately, which I highly recommend. Take a break form your daily rush, light a bowl, and spend a few minutes with Jimi. You won't regret it.

A Very Bad Man....

One of my favorite Seinfeld characters, Babu. Below a lesson about library books from another favorite Mr. Bookman.

Don't Piss Off Scotty

Deep Space Nine had a great episode, Trials and Tribble-ations, where they returned in time to events of the original Trouble with the Tribbles episode. Here is a great scene with the late great James Doohan, AKA "Scotty".

Robotman Favorite Flicks

A cult classic. I saw this at the 8th Street Playhouse (once the Rocky Horror theater, now sadly a Pakistani T-shirt shop) in the Village like like 7 or 8 times in '83-'84. A Car stealing, car chase, punk rock, Sci-fi comedy, and the oddest cast of characters ever. Here are a pre-Breakfast Club Emilio Esteverz and Harry Dean Stanton bonding.

Did Marilyn Love Presidents Day?

Sure seems that way. For Presidents Day I couldn't think of better babe or clip. RIP Norma Jean & JFK.

Sunday Sabbath

For this weeks sermon I bring you Sabbath at the 1974 California Jam doing Children of the Grave. Look at the size of the crowd and tattoo free Ozzy.

Saturday Morning Blues

For Valetines' day, who else but the first and coolest superhero ever, who had not one, but three fine-ass girlfriends to celebrate VD with. The guy was a stud. Here is the great show intro, and You Tube has a bunch of episodes.

Thanks God It's....Fridays

From the short lived Fridays show, the classic Rasta Gourmet played by Darrow Igus. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!!!

Yes, ten years ago today at his impeachment trial, Bill Clinton was aquitted of the charges of perjury and obstuction of justice related to the famous blowjob. It was pretty dumb wasting all that money on a trail, but from that day on oral sex went from taboo to 3rd base. Since teenage boys are to busy getting blowjobs to thank him, I mention it here. And here.

Emotional Spock

I'm a huge Original Series Trek fan, so let me start out with a classic. Spock has to battle Kirk over a chick for odd reasons. Amok Time. The battle scene. Awesome, bad stand-ins at all. I say Deforrest deserved an Emmy for his part.

Robotman Favorite Flicks

Even though River's Edge took place out west in the 80's, this could have easily been Jersey with all the burnouts in my neighborhood. An insane soundtrack, murder, Dennis Hopper, a freaked out Crispen Glover, and tons more. Here is one of the many frentic and funny scenes.

Does Roxana Hate Mondays?

I doubt it. Roxana Martinez, Argentine Bombshell & spanish TV staple also known as "La Tetanic". Thanks for being a natural genetic marvel. Here she is not being shy at all at a spanish morning show.

Sunday Sabbath

Black Sabbath. This is a clip from the legendary Paris 1970 show. This version of Warpigs has some alternate lyrics as the song was still so new. I wasn't able to attend this show as I was 3 years old and lived in New Jersey at the time.

Saturday Morning Blues

Hong Kong Phooey, voiced by the super cool Scatman Crothers, was a staple for me in the golden age of the 70's Saturday mornings. Apparently my West German counterparts thought it was pretty good also.

Thanks God It's....Fridays

The "take a pill" guy, played by Mark Blankfield from the classic Fridays late night show. My friends and I used to love this skit. So sit back, take a pill, and enjoy.

Happy Birthday Hammerin' Hank!

What a legend. Henry "Hank" Aaron. The true Homerun King. A humble, consumate professional. How he ran the bases that day you wouldn't know he had just broken the Babe's record. A true class act.

Tom Daschle and Barry Bonds, the Sex Pistols have a few words for you from their recent reunion for your sorry asses.

Robotman Favorite Flicks

Mad Monster Party. They use to air this once a year around Halloween in the 70's. I loved all of the Rankin/Bass Xmas specials but this one was so unique. Here is the Mummy Dance scence. You can find most of the movie on You Tube and also available on DVD.

Does Milla Hate Mondays?

I don't think so. Milla Jovovich, thanks for killing zombies and for just breathing. Here she is with the also hot Kelly Bundy.
