The Big Guava

This week half of the American political circus comes to Tampa, Florida and there's more to the Tampa Bay area than Joe Redner, the Shuffleboard Hall of Fame and Rondo Hatton's grave — as this 1976 promotional film will show you.

In the early '90s I lived in Tampa while pursuing studies at the University of Sun and Fun and Tampa's public access cable was a goldmine of visual delights from Carol H. Sudler IV's (AKA Harrison) award-winning Chatterbox talkshow to GG Allin videos shown by Suzy Morbid (now DJ Suzy Solar) and, of course, the legendary Sondra Prill.

Gag Boxes

I've always had a thing for gag boxes. I recall my dad having an enviable collection of adult novelty boxes that he would carefully keep hidden from the Yuma youth brigade (we knew exactly where they were hidden and took great care, after ogling, to replace them in the exact same corner of the upper closet shelf.)

Collectors Weekly interviews Mardi & Stan Timm about their collection of gag box novelties, many produced by the H. Fishlove and Co. and the brains of the operation - Irving Fishlove.
Here's a few from their collection:

For the novelty connoisseur, The Timm's website, timmstuff is worth a peek.

Though her opinion is subject to debate, her song is worth a listen:

Gloria Parker, the glass harpist.

When the penthouse party became a drag and the guests were about to doze off Gloria Parker brought out her glass harp for an envigorating exercise.

Years later, she's still there ...

Watermelon Men

The Tao of Watermelon is a curious thing. Many a man has tried to define it, few have succeeded. In these two clips we can see the divergent philosophies associated with the Watermelon conundrum. The Oklahoma state vegetable is Watermelon which furthers our bewilderment, as it is typically thought of as a fruit. I'll let you, gentle readers, ponder that as you listen and learn.

Sunshine Rabbits

Sunshine Rabbits is a band from my town Malmö, Sweden. Claiming to be the "founders of fur pop got soul" they are a quite spectacular party band. Their mix of re-cycled disco beats, energy and pure girl power is smittening. They are like the bad seeds of The Spice Girls on a guerrilla war for more fun for real party people. The videos are good fun!
Here is their video for "Asassynation" from their debut album.

If you liked this be sure to also check out another gem from their new album, "Agneta", and their "Colour of the Fur" from 2008. Both are great fun to watch!

Sweet Daddy

"Mr. Irresistible."
Sweet Daddy Siki  is a former championship 'rassler who was a terror in the squared circle. Born in Texas, he emigrated to Canada in the early 60's where his legion of followers packed the Maple Leaf Gardens to witness him deploy his signature "coco butt" move.
In this action shot, Siki, and "The Sheik", are working over Handsome Johnny Barend.
During the latter years of his pro wrestling career, Sweet Daddy released a series of  serviceable country music records that largely featured covers of Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Charley Pride tunes. The LP "Sweet Daddy Siki Squares Off With Country Music" is a favorite of record cover collectors.

Amazingly enough, Sweet Daddy can still be seen and heard weekly leading the karaoke show at the "Duke", a  Toronto bar situated on Queen Street East and Leslie. Neat article about his royal highness at 501 Queen Streetcar
Special thanks to  Kliph Nesteroff for the assist.

Thank Jehovah for Kung Fu Bicycles and Priscilla Presley

Doin' the Creep

I love Alvin Cash. When he's not urging you to "form a big boss line," exclaiming "lawd have mercy!" or moaning "aww baby!" he's getting berated by his backup singers. Alvin Cash records are great because you're right there in the room with him. "It's me, Alvin!" or "I'm back again!" he'll shout just in case you didn't know who you were listening to for a second. Alvin is always trying a new dance.

In this one, a genie-like voice busts him right from the beginning...creepin'
