"Myra Breckinridge" (opening credits)

I started watching the Raquel Welch movie, "Myra Breckinridge" last night. Hoo man... it's awful. I'm gonna try to finish it tonight... but I'm not too sure I'll make it.

It's touted as "The book they said couldn't be written is now the movie they said couldn't be made!"

They were right!

77 Sunset Strip (snap snap)

Sorry, there's no "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb" on this compilation, but there IS the theme song from the 1960s TV hit series (and its companion cha-cha dance version), as well as a great hipster spy number entitled "Caper at the Coffee House"--all the other baristas will be SO impressed when you play this CD on the job, I practically guarantee it.
You can find the three song sampler from the album here.

Available with other vintage forró from Mulambada which includes 2 versions of the Gordurinha classic "Chiclete com Banana"--have I mentioned today how much I love Gordurinha? No? Well, listen to this, maybe you will love him too.

The nine themes of the exhibition :

pop music / cinema / soundtracks & library music / TV & media / fashion / product design / visual arts / sex, éroticism et drugs / clubs, bars & venues.

Nurse Romance Cover of the Week

Surf Safari Nurse Surf Safari Nurse (1966, by Jane Converse. From the archives of Nurse Romance Cover of the Week at UWM Libraries’ Special Collections. "...Nurse Romance Cover of the Week presents images and snippets of text from the more than 425 novels held in the UWM Libraries' Special Collections that have nurses as central characters. These images, from works written for both young and adult audiences from the 1950s to the 1970s, often reflect stereotypes about nurses, usually negative, that are held in the popular imagination. These works raise issues concerning the image of nurses and the nursing profession in popular culture, and the books that serve to reinforce not only popular misconceptions of nurses, but of women generally, and professional women in particular."

I am far less impressed by the actual outtakes from Martin & Lewis promos for their movie "The Caddy" than I am by this exceptional decal. (don't bother downloading unless you think you'd get a kick out of hearing Dean & Jerry say bad words)

Calypso Carnival

Now available--1950s calypso tunes from the Duke of Iron, including the Naughty Fly, Woman Police, Loving Woman is a Waste of Time, and the Big Bamboo (the definitive version, for those keeping score).


For those of you who did not live through the era, the 1970s was a decade fraught with danger. Hormone levels were so high that we were all compelled to learn karate to protect ourselves from one another. Cheap aftershave would set off the women, even for terminal nerds like Joey Bishop & Regis Philbin. aggressive waiters were a constant problem for women.

All the lame crap above is just an excuse to post this great song sent to me recently--"Karate" by Ray Sanders & Friend. (I like to think "Friend" is the blonde from the movie "Faster Pussycat Kill Kill")
(Thanks Mr. McNamerson, I need some more music pleeeeease)
