The Milton Berle Show (1966) Guest Starring Adam West, Van Williams, and Bruce Lee


Legendary comedian Milton Berle is most famous for his program Texaco Star Theater from the 1950s, but he also had a show during the 60s named after himself. In this installment from 1966, Berle plays an actor starring as two difference villains in two different series, Batman and The Green Hornet

The problem is, he's filming both series at the same time, which turns out to be--physically challenging in several ways. Unfortunately, one of the villains he plays is a gross Asian stereotype which plays into the skit. I can only imagine what Bruce Lee thought of this.

Thanks!

List O' Links for Friday, May 19, 2017


I haven't posted a List O' Links since February, so I'm long overdue for one. Enjoy your unseasonably hot Friday (on the east coast, anyway) with these cool links!

Want to weed out unwanted selections from Netflix's not-so-accurate algorithms? Here's how!

Here are some gorgeous backgrounds from the great Hanna-Barbara action-adventure cartoon Thundarr The Barbarian. 

One of my favorite sitcoms of all time is Happy Days. Here are some fun photos taken from the series from behind the scenes, including the late Erin Moran.

If, like me, you still have a big collection of audio cassettes laying idle in your house that don't often see the light of day, you may have a way of listening to them in the near future. I give you--the Elbow, the next portable cassette player!

I don't normally address 1990s nostalgia here, as I'm much more of a 70s and 80s guy, but for any of you that do have a soft spot for the decade, you may also have a soft spot for the classic 90s song "Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger. Check out the Onion AV Club's spotlight on the song.

A great deal of people are looking forward to the new Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot, including me. Why not prove your love to the Wonder Woman in your life by getting here these lovely Wonder Woman bracelets, tiara, and lasso. And they're only 400 FREAKIN' DOLLARS!!!

Finally, have you ever driven by a building that looks suspiciously like a Pizza Hut and yet doesn't serve pizza? It happens a lot more than you think--so often that someone has created a Web site called Used to Be A Pizza Hut. You'd be surprised how many former Huts have been repurposed for any number of enterprises. Take a look!

Have a great weekend!

Genesis Live on the Mike Douglas Show, Philadelphia, 1977


Following up on my Genesis article from a couple weeks ago, here is a neat treat--the band performing two songs from their Wind and Wuthering album on The Mike Douglas Show, which originated in my hometown of Philadelphia. This aired sometime in 1977 (the footage doesn't provide an exact date, unfortunately).

A favorite band of mine performing on a Philadelphia-based broadcast institution? How can I resist?

Plus, Phil Collins has an amazing beard here.

Enjoy!
