Classic TV Show Opens Of The Day

Two opens for the same show. First, the one you remember.


And the Season 1 intro, before they changed the song and replaced "drummer" Jeremy Gelbwaks with Brian Forster. Neither one of them actually played, nor did anyone else except David Cassidy (although Shirley Jones did sing). IMdb says that all the other kids were given the opportunity to sing and play their own instruments, but were not good enough.

In related news, Dave Madden, who played Reuben Kincaid, was not really a band manager, just an actor portraying one.


F**ked Up Japanese Commercial Of The Day

Yeah, this makes total sense.

From Julie M., who reminded me that in Japan, the hand can be used like a knife. Except with a tomato.


Celebrities Without Makeup (Of The Day)

Be afraid... especially of Debra Messing. Shudder. In Goldie's defense, she's like 147 years old.

Many thanks to Mandy for the idea.


Classic SNL Clip Of The Day: Wookin'

"The Look of Love" made me think of this one. God - still funny after all these years.

Sorry 'bout the shitty quality. Best I could find.

Fake Billboards Of The Day

Fake billboards made for a Worth1000 Photoshop contest, and some from The last time I ran this, someone said they'd seen a couple of the Dribbleglass ones in real life, but I have a hard time believing that.

Great stuff from Bubbasmom.


Craptastic 80s Music Video Of The Day: Vanity Kills

Remember when you had to buy an entire LP or cassette when you only wanted one song? One of my college girlfriends bought ABC's "How To Be A Zillionaire!" because she wanted the song, "Be Near Me." This song, "Vanity Kills," was on the same album. I wasn't really an ABC fan, but the song cracked me up.

You've finally found someone who loves you
Sad to say, that someone is you
Now perhaps you'll both be happy
Guess that makes two: just you and you.

I'd never seen this video. It's fricken AWESOME!


The first song on Side 2 of the album was called "A To Z," and in it each member of the band introduces himself: "My name is Martin Fry. F. R. Y. And I want to boogie" (or whatever he said after "F.R.Y."; I don't recall.) I do recall what Eden said when her turn came up: "Hi. I'm Eden. And I want you to.. Kiss. My. Snatch!"

The next time I heard that song was years later -- I was at a party where someone had the CD or tape -- and when this song played, the snatch part was gone. Maybe Eden had no takers. I doubt any of her bandmates was interested.

This was ABC's biggest hit:
