Songs of the Season, Part 14

Just to keep this blog alive. Posting will continue to be slow for a couple more weeks. My schedule will open up considerably in August. 'til then, a little randomness:
Two very important developments: Spaced is on Hulu, and the entire archive of the Weekly World News (going back to the 80's, when the joke was still funny) is available on GoogleBooks!

The pimped-out trucks of Pakistan!

Old Cartoons that feature smoking!

And here's a resource I intend to take advantage of: a list of the best C'thulu stories not written by HP Lovecraft!

TiVo'd a couple wacky beach party movies off TCM last week. No Frankie and Annette--these are the even cheesier poverty row rip-offs. The one I was looking forward to watching was It's A Bikini World, which is playing at the Egyptian later this month, when I'm going to be out of town (I'm missing so many good shows! Bikini World is double featured with Angel Angel Down We Go, which has been on my list for years, and there's a Godzilla double feature at the Egyptian and a night of beatnik cartoons at the Silent, all while I'm in Georgia!). But that one turned out to be a dud, despite some good musical performances. It's real saving grace was Sid Haig, in one of the funniest roles of his career as a beatnik capitalist.

But For Those Who Think Young, which I TiVo'd in a "oh, what the hell" state of mind, is actually pretty cool. Didn't watch it closely, so I'm not sure about the plot (there's a beach bum romance, with Bob Denver as the wacky sidekick, and then there's another plot that seems to be a vehicle for this nightclub comedian, and I'm not sure how the two stories connected), but it looked good, and there was this great musical number:

Paying Mr. Kafi

Posting is going to continue to be slow at least through the next month or so. But here's a great, very funny film some friends made.
