Hit the Road with the Mustache

There's always room in my heart for another blog featuring oddball roadside attractions and reflections on the aforementioned. Back Off Mustache (reference to Yosemite Sam mudflaps?) is surely worth a visit, especially those of us tethered to home by a shortage of funds for fuel and travel snacks.


Wow. I'm not sure how much more benignly safe we could get with this seventies teen idol, and by benign I mean totally de-masculinated, not just de-ballsified. An ostensibly grown man wearing a Dreamsicle-orange onesie with an ice cream cone on it -- I mean, to make him more infantilized he'd have to be posed next to a tube of A & D ointment and a teething ring. I'm surprised they allowed the arm hair, but then I suppose he IS Latino.

And what does that say on the shirt sleeve, "Rubba Man Ipanema"? Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life.

When sex leers its inquisitive head

I know of Peter Wyngarde mainly from his appearance in The Prisoner as No. 2 in the episode "Checkmate."
In 1970 he took time out from playing TV's Jason King to release an eponymous LP (now available on the once-popular compact disc format as When Sex Leers Its Inquisitive Head); here are some representative tracks of an album I'm at a loss for words to describe.

"Hippy and the Skinhead"


"Neville Thumbcatch"

Unshakable faith in rock and roll

Dance To The Music

Ben Smathers, the leader of the Stoney Mountain Cloggers drawls on with this mancentric yarn about blind dates and spinach teeth disorders.

Secrets of the Black Pinup

Intrigued by the question "Why aren't there any black pin up girls" on an internet message board, writer Jim Linderman decided to find out. With 100 rare vintage photographs all showing women of color in magazines not seen for over 50 years, Linderman not only reveals many answers to the question, he reveals a long gone part of America and African-American culture.  Secret of the Black Pin Up takes us from "tease" to "sleaze" and reveals a world never before seen.  Using rare photos and publications, the untold story of African-American women in the soft-core pornography world from 1940 to date.  Yes, there WERE black pin ups, and they are found here.

Blazing Stewardesses

Blazing Stewardesses was conceived as a 1940s-style B movie comedy to feature what once passed as the the Three Stooges — Moe, Curly Joe and Emil Sitka. After Moe Howard's illness and death surviving Ritz Brothers Harry and Jimmy were brought in as replacements and billed as "special guest stars." The Ritz Brothers followed this up with an appearance in Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood the following year. The stars are Yvonne DeCarlo (The Musters, Oscar), Robert Livingston (reprising his role from The Naughty Stewardesses) and Don "Red" Barry (Adventures of Red Ryder, Police Woman).
Is it a sequel to The Naughty Stewardesses?
Sure, why not.
Rated R

The Messiah is my Sister

Lousy video quality. So-so audio. GREAT FRICKEN SONG. I used to be a record store manager in a big-ass mall, and I got busted by the rent-a-cops several times for blasting this out into the common area. Screw the common...

Black lung Blues

Nimrod Workman.

In the Summertime

Due to my love of car accident songs, I had to go and get myself in one! So I've been recuperating here at the PCL mansion. All kinds of strange goings-on happen here. I know I'm not supposed to tell, but I really have to let you in on this one:

Los Peniques

Music from Los Peniques from El Blog de Kachimondo.

Cachicamo Trabajo pa'Lapa:

Courtin' in the Rain

There's some odd and interesting music to be found at Shushmuckle's Posterous site, including "Courtin' in the Rain" from the late 50s Indiana Hoedown TV show. And the mega-creepy Bill Anderson song "The First Mrs. Jones".

The Moist Towelette Museum

I'm feeling a little nostalgic today for some of these ancient (by internet standards) websites of collections by the obsessive-compulsive. Like the Moist Towelette Museum, which was last updated in 2007. I've already posted the link to another old old old favorite online collection the Furnace Sticker Museum. Y'all let me know if you ever stumble across a Rain Bonnet Museum website, OK?

Gearing Up

Temperature dropped to 50 today here in Western New York and thoughts turn to gearing up for the long cold winter days ahead. Pulled out a mold encrusted book about preserving foods from the basement and scanned chapters on "Canning Vegetables and Fruits", "Pickles and Relishes" and "Jams, Jellies and Fruit Butters".
All very organic and earth-mother like. As they say "Meh".
What really got my heart rate aroused was the chapter on "Canning and Drying Meat and Poultry". Processing meat......that's the beefcake, virile approach! Let's leave the jams and jellies for the "little woman" to manage. I'm stoked about rendering lard, butchering carcasses and headcheese techniques........ until I see how much fucking work is involved (and the alcohol wore off).
The decision to purchase the fruits of another homesteaders efforts seemed to be the wiser choice. Next stop all the Dollar Store and cheap ass Acme marts I can find in search of......

Online Puppet - Phil Fumble - Winin' Boy

Just messin' around with the concept of the intertubes as toy. Holy Warbles has an interesting selection of musical tastes, and also a cool little embed service that links to many of his/her/its tracks as a playlist. The site is beautiful auditorily and visually. Either way, it has plenty of embeds, from differing services.

In conjunction with that, I was thinking of how to make an online puppet. A moronically featureless one, and I knew I had to use Flash because Shockwave is a thing of the past, really. So I searched for an online Flash Generator and found http://www.effectgenerator.com/ which let's you kinda build real flash - no ads but if you wanna "keep" your flash you have to buy it, other than that they will host it. But no redirects or limit to how many attempts to get it right. Pretty cool.

So I took the embedded music from Holy Warbles upload of Jelly Roll Morton's equisite Winin' Boy, and said "Now who's the winin' boy puppet gonna be?" The answer: Phil Fumble, because he ain't never satisfied despite his relationship with the fine ass Fritzi Ritz. He is, for all intents and purposes, a winin' boy. Plus he looks like Frank McHugh

INSTRUCTIONS: Start playing the music, then when the singing begins, click on Phil to open and close his mouth in order to have him sing along. FUN! Try to keep up. Also, next time your a-hole boss is ranting about some BS or your nagging spouse is yammering on about your shortcomings, just click on Phil to channel them into a pathetic online puppet! FUN AGAIN!

Journalist and BBC presenter Tony Livesey hosts a pair of BBC documentaries; first up is Crumpet! A Very British Sex Symbol which lovingly and leeringly looks at the 1970s lovelies of the Carry On, Bond and Hammer films as well as Page 3, pop music and TV.

Beefcake: A Very British Sex Symbol elevates masculine paragons of '70s British cinema and football from the likes of Jack Carter and George Best and in the end looks at the decline of these manly men.

The Pussy Cat Song - Connie Vannett

Appearing In The Motel Lounge has become a daily fix in my travels. Mark Betcher brings the noise with each and every post and I've finally decided to pay tribute after stealing his shit for the past few months. Take a peek if obscure lounge act recordings and vinyl rarities float your boat.
Risking the consternation of my neighbors and family, his sharities are eating up many GB's of my hard drive.
You'd be wise to wander on over.

The latest grab is this double entendre number performed by a Connie Vannett that has risen to the top of the Yuma charts.

An Invitation to YOU

So.... I had this recent email exchange:
"Lex10 to fakecriterions

show details 12:59 PM (3 hours ago)

So, um, just out of curiosity is it that:
you get thousands of submissions,
or is it that you did not find my design good-looking enough,
or is it because you found the humor in bad taste?
(Plot Summary for Manhattan: Isaac, 42, has divorced Jill. She is now living with another woman, Connie, and is writing a book in which she will reveal some very private points of their relationship. Isaac has a love affair with Tracy, 17, when he meets Mary, the mistress of his best friend Yale. Yale is already married to Emily.)

Fake Criterions to me

show details 1:14 PM (3 hours ago)


I found it quite funny. the one-word response belying acerbic disdain n'all. And so, since my work isn't good enough, and they're too busy, and I showed bad taste, I have Founded UNCENSORED FAKE CRITERIONS (link at pic et. al.) the original admittedly a brilliant concept and I invite you to SUBMIT. You could literally take a dump on a sheet of paper and entitle it "C.C. & Company" and it will go up. The funny thing is, I will probably censor it for porn or exploitation, so, uh, it's uh, funny, no? 'Cause it's till censored.

Here's the three I submitted - none of which made the cut (except at Chuck Palahniuk's site) halve a larf, or be offended, if you're cool with 56-year-olds marrying their daughters:
