Big Boned Feel Good Friday Edition

I made you suffer earlier this week with a female singer who spells her name differently, so now I’ll treat you to another siren with unusual spelling.

From the Ke$ha and Star Trek “Tik Tok” mashup to kd lang’s “Big Boned Gal.”

Happy Friday everyone!

Feel Good Friday – One Step Beyond

Here’s your dose of Feel Good Friday.

It’s a heavy, heavy monster sound that will get you to move your feet.

Madness with “One Step Beyond.”

Feel Good Friday – Liar, Liar

It’s Feel Good Friday and time for some retro Liar, Liar and I’m not talking about the movie Liar Liar with Jim Carrey.

It’s the Castaways and in this clip from the movie “It’s a Bikini World” you get a groovy go-go dancer doing the swim in a red bikini with some swinging fringe. Notice the vampiric pallor of her pasty white skin. Good stuff. Also in the opening moments before the song starts, the bearded dude sitting down is Sid Haig who starred decades later in Rob Zombie’s “House of 1,000 Corpses” as Captain Spaulding. Also seated is Tommy Kirk, who was still trying to put food on the table after all those Disney teen movies including “Son of Flubber” dried up.

Happy Friday everyone.

Feed Em Fish Heads for Feel Good Friday

After all the bailout talk and last night’s debate, I think we needed something a little light hearted.

I had forgotten how long the intro is on this video.

Your patience will be rewarded.

For more FGF, visit Ginger, Newscoma, Scout, Cluttered Brain, Sista Smiff, Left Wing Cracker, Sharon Cobb, GoldnI, MonsterMash40, LeBlanc, Hollywood Ron, Nashville Is Talking, Russ McBee, Beziat and Jag.

There may be more out there, but I ran out of time to look for them.

Happy Friday to all.

Precision Italian Motorcycle Drills

I got an e-mail from my aunt that included a video clip of a 1950s Italian police motorcycle unit’s precision drills.

Intricate patterns, black and white footage, motorcycles.

Sure, they may not be hauling rattlesnakes, but what’s not to love?

They aren’t scooters, but even Jeffraham can appreciate their intricate two-wheeled dance.
