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.

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.

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".

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
