  1. Awhile back, I wrote a humorous post about a Zip Code commercial that I remembered from my early childhood, performed by a group called "The Swingin' Six." I thought (when I was old enough to think about such things) that it was simply a group put together for this commercial, and maybe it was (sort of like "The Monkees"), but The Swingin' Six was actually a real band - with a 1967 album called "For the First Time" (having an album in those days was something akin to having a book published - it established credibility). Anyway, The Swingin' Six actually existed outside of that one commer
  2. And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid like "It wasn't originally recorded by Frank and Nancy Sinatra."
  3. "Sandy Koufax" is the answer to one of my favorite baseball trivia questions: "Which Hall of Fame pitcher had a career record of 36-40 exactly halfway through his career?" Of note: Koufax's 1965 World Series is the one where he took off Game 1 for Yom Kippur; yet he still managed to start 3 games, and win Game 7 on 2 days rest. In 1966, in his last regular-season game, he threw over 200 pitches. I take no pride whatsoever that he lost the last game he ever pitched to the 1966 Orioles. None whatsoever. Nope. No sir. And the thing is ... I'm being truthful here because he onl
  4. "Star Trek" (TOS) Main Cast Series created by Gene Roddenberry William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk Leonard Nimoy as First Officer Spock DeForest Kelley as Doctor Leonard H.

  5. "Incubus" (1966) is a strange, bizarre film that is reserved for the hardest of religious-horror fans. Amazingly, the film was deemed "lost" for a long time (well over twenty years, I believe) and it wasn't recovered until a copy was found in Paris in 1996. That one, lone copy is the reason it's possible to watch the film today, tomorrow, and beyond. Here is a list of lost films - tragic, but true. It was directed by Leslie Stevens, creator of "The Outer Limits," and stars - believe it or not - William Shatner. "Incubus" was released one year after Stevens finished with "The Outer Limits,
  6. People are probably wondering what I'm smoking, beginning a thread about "Mama Told Me Not To Come," one of the most embarrassingly annoying songs that Three Dog Night ever recorded. Worse, it was written by Randy Newman, who I find about as likable as Michael Moore, with a voice about as pleasant as Bob Dylan's. So why am I writing about such a bad song? Because it's the *only* song that I've heard Randy Newman perform (granted, a very limited selection) that I like, but only *his* bluesy version. Three Dog Night - the cover everyone knows about - ruined it by turning it into some silly s
  7. Thing is, I *loved* J.J. Abrams' 2009 "Star Trek" film, and thought it really set the stage for a new generation of Star Trek fans - honoring the original characters, while replacing them with fresh blood. I didn't realize he was the person who directed "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" until later on, and I think he didn't accomplish the same thing with Star Wars as he did with Star Trek (although I haven't seen "Star Trek: Into Darkness," which I'm told is more of a "for-the-masses" movie). Knowing it was Abrams who directed "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" makes me doubly disappointed. Other t
  8. The 2015 (15th) International Tschaikovsky Competition took place from Jun 15 - Jul 3, 2015, and is available for recorded streaming at this website. Piano - Violin - Cello - Voice To view all the contestants in all the early rounds, go to the website, then click on your instrument of choice, then click on "Replay." Every single performance throughout the competition is available, and it's a real gift that this is available for free streaming. --- The International Tschaikovsky Competition debuted in 1958, and is *the* competition that made Van Cliburn famous (with Emil Gilels and Svia
  9. I had been meaning to post something of the Brazilian singer Luciana Souza's weeks ago, and then it slipped my mind. I'll make up for it now. I'd have to say she's my favorite jazz/pop singer working today. "Doralice" (1960, Antí´nio Almeida and Dorival Caymmi) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FawMGW4xygg "Muita Bobeira" (1998, Luciana Souza) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06Xix1XnkLg "Here It Is" (2001, Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson) Enjoy.
  10. Oh, come on...Lynyrd Skynyrd wasn't twangy, wasn't hillbilly and wasn't crap! And who doesn;t love those Molly Hatchet album covers? You want twangy hillbilly crap, you got to listen to the Rolling Stones
  11. We had this album lying around the house when I was a small child, and of course I listened to it as a Batman fan. I didn't know who Sun Ra was back then, but even as a child still in the single digits, I knew that this was a cheap, cash-in album, and that "Robin's Theme" was absolute filler, with "lyrics" so bad that they seemed impossible. It has been over forty years since I've heard this song, and while the guitar jamming is actually impressive and fun, the lyrics are every bit as terrible as what I remember - they're enough to make KC and the Sunshine Band seem like Chaucer, and I thi
