The 90's Dance Music Formula

All of these songs are virtually the same. I am aware that the Cutting Crew song is from 1986, but we can use it as an example as what was perhaps the song that started this whole thing. 

BONUS FACT: Most 90's music video's featured either flowers, fields, swing sets &/or Elderly people. I don't know how many of these videos have any of that (I didn't really watch them), but I bet they all do. Although elderly people & swing sets where more predominantly featured in the Alternative genre.

My Life With Old Skull

When I was about 10 years old, my older brother Ben, who got me into bands like Minor Threat and The Dead Kennedy's, turned me on to a band called Old Skull. This was around the time they released there 2nd album CIA Drug Fest. At the time their 1st album Get Outta school was released, the members of Old Skull where between the ages of 8 and 10. I was immediately drawn to them. I did not care that they couldn't play there instruments. I knew that didn't matter. As a very rebellious child I thought their could be nothing cooler than having a punk band at such an early age. a few years later, my brother made some random decision to move to Madison Wisconsin. a couple weeks after his big move (he was 16 by the way) I received a call from him, "hey I made some cool new friends out here. JP and Jamie Toulon. Their brothers and they where in Old Skull.". I was pretty psyched. I had learned everything I wanted to know about them. I had learned that they where put together by their father Vern Toulon with a little help from Mojo Nixon.
After Madison got old, Ben and JP decided to move to NYC and be squatters together. Train hopping was involved as well somewhere within these years. Jamie ended up moving to NYC sometime in the mix as well. JP was 15 when I met him, I was 13 I think. He was like Elvis to me. An Icon. We ended up becoming good pals during the times that Ben would bring him up to visit. Mainly we just watched a lot of television together and would crack jokes. BB guns where a big part of our relationship as well. Jamie and I never got to close. He was a serious loner in most peoples eyes.
JP and Jamie's father had died of a heroin overdose at sometime or another. Their mother, hit by a train. This was probably a big factor  in why they fell into deep dark drug addictions. My brother became a big part of that as well. Sometime, somewhere down the road I had joined them. Ben was not supportive of my decision but at times he was forced to overlook that. There I was, going on dope runs with my childhood heroes. I thought I was bad until I saw JP do things like stick a syringe in his neck because all the veins in his arms had collapsed or shoot 10 bags at once. I am not calling myself a saint. I would constantly go on benders, run out of money, get sick, repeat. it turned into a scheduled agenda. I'll spare the real gory details.
To make a long story short, my brother who was doing quite well had one of his little slips about 3 years back. He was found dead on a bathroom floor. One year later JP died of a speedball overdose (cocaine and heroin mix). One year after that, Jamie hanged himself. But no matter how skeezy JP was, everybody loved him. He was one of the funniest and most charismatic people I have ever known. I haven't even thought of doing hard drugs ever since my brother died. He left behind a beautiful little girl named Adelaide, she to me is better than any drug ever created. JP left behind a beautiful son named Aiden, who is the same age as my niece. My brother played a huge role in making me the man I am today and I am extremely thankful for that. I always count my blessings and I still think Old Skull is fucking awesome!
JP Toulon
Oh yeah another thing. I went to the Old Skull reunion at CBGB's. JP dedicated the song Pizza Man to me. They where all really good at playing their instruments which was weird. It was pretty funny.

I Am a Little Bit Scared Of The Mule-Bot

The LS3 Mule-Bot has been designed to carry up to 400 pounds worth of equipment to assist troops in the field. It can also follow simple voice commands. It is especially scary when it comes out of the bushes.

Mr. Muggs: Jonestown Mascot/Jim Jones: Monkey Salesman

Mr. Muggs was a chimpanzee that the Reverend Jim Jones kept in a cage near his cottage. It was rumored that small children were placed in the cage with Mr. Muggs as a form of punishment.
His cage is the only structure still standing on the original grounds of the People's Temple in Guyana. 
In fact, Jim Jones's raised enough money to open his first church in Indianapolis as a door to door monkey salesman.

Gary Motherfuckin' Puckett

I once had the honor of seeing the Legendary Gary 
Puckett in Connecticut at a beautiful olde theatre from the early 1900s. I was sandwiched betwixt my father 
and a large retarded man! He dazzled us with tales of family, Elvis, & a wonderful story about a trip to a tailor shop in Mexico to get the Union Gap costumes made. One of my all time favorite vocalists... Ladies & gentlemen... The one... The only... GARY PUCKETT!!!!!!

Watch Gary sing a string of his hits to a cowboy puppet in the bottom video!!!!

I Too Am Your Pantherman

Tartan Mushroom was a one off thing I threw together with Carl & Phil from The Templars I recorded this years before I ever heard Pantherman's self titled single. Our one song was titled Panther Lady. Strange coincidence, realizing that it kinda really sounds like him. Click the panther!!!

Another Hero Gone

When I was 5 years old I wanted to up to be MCA in the worst way. My brother, his friend and I would always get really excited when Fight For Your Right To Party or No Sleep till Brooklyn would come on MTV. They always made me be Mike D but MCA ruled my world with his leather jacket, stubble and raspy voice. I was in awe when he blew away all those marshall stacks with a machine gun while wearing aviators and when I heard he had The Beastie Boys banned from Holiday Inns across the country for jumping off a balcony into the pool (I always envisioned him in that moment wearing tighty whiteys and one sock.) I also once wore a gorilla costume and danced on the hood of my fathers yellow Buick AKA the Banana Mobile to my brothers Licensed to Ill cassette to promote my big brothers cub scout car wash in front of the Woodstock Elementary school. He was a major influence on the way I turned out today and I am very thankful for that. I hope they got White Castle where he's going. R.I.P. Brothers

The Great Buckwheat Swindle?


Meet Tempe Arizona, grocery bagger Billie English! The man who to the day of his death claimed he played Buckwheat in the beloved Our Gang follies...

Now meet the real Buckwheat, one William Thomas Jr.! Besides being the real Buckwheat, William was a father, a Veteran of the US Army, a film lab technician at Technicolor & dabbled around as a citizen band "ham" radio operator.

                               L-R Joe Cobb, George "Spanky" McFarland, William "Buckwheat" Thomas

So it turned out that Billie English truly believed he was the real Buckwheat. Otherwise he probably would have gone under another name. So cut the guy some slack.
Billie English, ?-1994,  rest in peace
William "Buckwheat" Thomas, 1931-1980, rest in peace

Eddie Murphy Did It His Way

“That's my idol, Elvis Presley. If you went to my house, you'd see pictures all over of Elvis. He's just the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And I think it's because he had such presence. When Elvis walked into a room, Elvis Presley was in the fucking room. I don't give a fuck who was in the room with him---[Humphrey Bogart], Marilyn Monroe" -Eddie Murphy
A young Eddie once exclaimed that when he hits it big he wanted a leather suit not unlike the one worn by the King in his legendary 68 Comeback Special. Alongside Eddie at the boom of his career was his longtime friends/entourage all in matching satin jackets ala Memphis Mafia.

Now compare the first few minutes of Eddie Murphy Delirious to a clip from This Is Elvis...

My Child is a Monkey

Apparently Owning a monkey ISN'T such a good idea?! Apparently Cheetos & ranch dressing is an unsubstantial diet for a monkey?!  Watch as a woman tells two children " No it's not my pet it's companion for life", completely straight faced! I'm assuming she's single.
