“Rousseau’s gonna piss in the marinade glaze again!”
Chubby Checker‘s “Do the Fly” didn’t quite make the cut in 1963, but two years later we got this:
In 1965, “Do the Freddy” was Freddy & the Dreamers’ attempt to create a new dance craze. I’d never heard of it, so it must have been a West Coast/British Invasion thang, but F&theD’s actually DID manage to have an influence on later rockers, including the Ramones (watch DeeDee’s moves). Wait for classic dopiness at about 1:00.
Clarence Carter‘s “Slip Away” went to No.6 in 1968. From Billboard’s Top Pop Singles: “Born in 1936 in Montgomery, Alabama. Blind since age 1. Self-taught on guitar from age 11.”
And now for our Feature Length Presentation (courtesy of Hanuman) 1961’s “The Choppers.” Pay attention, parents. This could happen to YOUR KIDS, but they’ll never have such a cool soundtrack.

Folks, many of us who use WordPress noticed recently that our posted .gif animations won’t animate once posted, even though the animations work in the “Edit Post” view, like this one:
The .gif file above and the one I posted below are from the same file, but the one below runs. The solution is easy… unless you have several hundred .gif animations already posted on your blog, like we do. I hope WP fixes the glitch. TechTalk continues below, after the break.
Quick! Run and tell WordPress!
Meanwhile, here are a couple of Buttheads.
NOBODY can play the jukebox like Brando.

Wow. Somebody put a lot of thought and effort into magnetizing this 2006 Chevy Impotent while at the same time cleverly advertising his lack of graphic talent. So let’s break it down.
The windshield motto indicates that the owner of this beauty, Tyrone, has a prison record and we taxpayers certainly paid for his incarceration “All Day.”
It’s also intuitively obvious to the casual observer that he reads Playboy for the advertisements. The symbolism behind four pairs of red dice and the dollar signs suggests that Tyrone fancies himself a gambler, and he patronizes crimson casinos exclusively.
The front bumper indicates that at least two or more people hate him, and they’re all ex-girlfriends that he borrowed money from to recoup his lost wagers/wages. I’ll bet it had something to do with his jail time.
The dashboard is carefully upholstered with a tailored moving blanket, and we can safely assume that the rest of the interior is similarly furnished. Pure efficient genius.
Then there’s the “Jesus” plate that makes it all seem better. Whatta ride.
