SEX PISTOLS Groupie Bigger than God!

Yes its true. Before the Banshees Siouxie used to hang with the Sex Pistols. She was just a music fan then. She wasn't the queen of Death rock/goth/Emo whatever you kids call it these days. To me she'll always be the singer who looks like Margot Kidder.
This is one of my favorite 80's Beatles covers.

Sit back and enjoy a video from a simpler time. A time when video effects were crappy and editors mistakes were genius.
We as viewers have come so far. This type of video is not even acceptible using BECK's standards today but back then...
pure fast forward hipness.

This sign needs to go up a block away from my house.

There is a family down the block from me with like a million kids. Little sticky full of "the lord" runts running around with no regard for their own safety.
A while back I was coming home from my first job to use the bathroom before going to my second job so I was speeding up the street. Yes I was Speeding. I was going about as fast as that fucking "all around the mulberry bush" Ice creamtruck goes up my street every god damn diddly day. So I pull up front and Papa mansack decides to come running up the street to yell at me.
"HEY. HEY YOU, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING? I HAVE KIDS. KIDS PLAY ON THE STREET AND YOU COME UP HERE AT 70 MILES AN HOUR." (bullshit papa radar I was going 40) All the while his fuckin sticky princess 4 year old was next to him as Daddy yells at the man.

It's not ok to teach your fuckin little inbred fiveheaded fucktards to look both ways but its ok to daddy does to strangers.

Try puttin a fuckin rubber on it captain jizzall!

finally something worth remaking.

LAND OF THE LOST 2008 Feature.

Its a Universal release (not a shock there) featuring Will Ferrell.
Directed by Adam McKay. (Taladega Nights/ Anchorman)

Here it comes again!

Benicio Del Toro will play Larry Talbot in the 2008 remake of THE WOLFMAN.

Michael Eisner's son will Direct Universal's remake of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON.

Brian Grazer is producing THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN for Universal.

Universal needs to understand people have already seen these films!

While this is a depression era photo I can't help but think it was taken yesterday.
This is truly a beautiful photo.

A dark, drizzly afternoon in March of 1936. Dorothea Lange has just finished a month-long assignment chronicling the plight of migratory farm laborers near Los Angeles and is driving north along Highway 101 to her comfortable residence in the Berkeley foothills. "Sixty-five miles an hour for seven hours would get me home to my family that night," Lange would later recall. "My eyes were glued to the wet and gleaming highway that stretched out ahead. I felt freed … ."

Just after passing through Santa Maria, on the outskirts of Nipomo, Lange passes a crude wooden sign on the side of the road, proclaiming "Pea-Pickers Camp." The 40-year-old Lange already has collected a month’s worth of field notes and photographs, and the staff photographer for Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Resettlement Administration resists the temptation to pull over and take more pictures.

Twenty minutes later, just before she reaches San Luis Obispo, Lange changes her mind and makes a U-turn on the barren highway. At Nipomo, "like a homing pigeon," she turns onto a muddy road and discovers a sprawling, squalid campsite of nearly 2,500 migrant farm workers battling starvation and the elements. They had been lured to the camp by newspaper advertisements promising work in the pea fields, only to be left stranded when protracted, late-winter rains destroyed the crop.

Almost spontaneously, Lange zeros in on a woman and a handful of children huddled in a tattered, lean-to tent. "I was following instinct, not reason," Lange recalled. "I saw and approached the hungry and desperate mother, as if drawn by a magnet."

Lange pulls out her Graflex camera and snaps a quick, wide-angle portrait of the rag-tag family. Over the course of the next 10 minutes, she will take five more photos, each time moving closer to the lean-to. The final photograph is a vertical portrait of the mother, her despair-ridden eyes staring anxiously off-camera, an uncertain hand raised to a drawn mouth.

The best ride-thru yet

This is by far the best ride thru of the defunct Disney Attraction.
That A- hole over at extinct attractions has a two disc set that is supposed to feature a ride thru but YOU CANT SEE ANYTHING! The damn video is way too dark plus cap'n fucko decided to add some footage from the old monsanto film of the ride so it is not an actual ride thru. Don't waste your time with Extinct Attractions products.

Nice catch blanco ninio... too bad your ass got saaaaaaaaaaaacked!

What idiotic parent would let their four year old wander the sidelines of a football game unattended.
Watch in awe as NO parent runs to this childs aid. If that seven year old that is running away was looking after the toddler that seven year old should go to juvenile hall. It looks like a seven year old girl.
LOOK! Shes running! It's like watching Jackie Kennedy try to climb out of the back of the limo. I betcha week-end daddy was drunk by this point in the game and told first mistake to take care of the new mistake as daddy needs to bang the $20 dollar hooker in the parking lot. This four year old was playing on the sidelines during a kids festival at the stadium. Who in their right mind thought it was ok for kids to be there?

Remember those that television made you forget

While this VT massacre is fresh in every ones mind please don't forget the other high profile tragedies that our news media has milked.

Why it seems only yesterday that Laci Peterson was alive. Remember her? Sure ya do her face was on every tabloid and her crazy (and if you ask me just a touch gay) husband went on the run.

Dont forget Laci just because something new and horrible has happened.
To help you remember her here is a little song I just found while poking around on the internets.
I have to warn you I pee'd a little from laughing so hard.

Remembering Laci

The random clicks at the beginning had me thinking they were sync pops but soon realized they are part of something really... well... just something.

See! Tragedy can be funny as hell!

Who's on force.

Dont forget to click the title of this post for enhanced pleasure

Lets all go to the lobby...

I'm taking a break from posting crap on the blog. I've exhausted myself stealing and reposting from other people blogs.
I want to take a moment and talk about something really important.

To quote Johnny Cash "I see the train a comin'." I want to warn you so you can step out of the way of this rapidly approaching freight train of crap headed right for you and your loved ones.

To be honest the train has left the station, rounded the bend and is crushing your legs as I type.

Lets see whats in production now:
Well we all know Halloween is being reworked by Rob Zombie. So is ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. Hmmm. come to think of it... Has John Carpenter sold the rights to every damn film he has done?
We have already had a couple of Carpenter remakes. THE FOG, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and now HALLOWEEN. Whats next? A remake of a remake with THE THING?
DAMN RIGHT! THE THING is now in preproduction. This is not a remake of the original THING but the John Carpenter version.

Lets see... what else is being remade... OH look at this! For fuck sake here is one horse that has been beaten to death, revived, beaten to death again, came back as a zombie beaten undead, came back as a ghost, and still was beaten and now is a cyborg horse who cannot be beaten.
Dear god get ready for yet another INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. This time with Nicole (I already did a remake) Kidman.
But this one is different it has a happy ending.

Lets see... WESTWORLD is in production by Warner Bros.

I now regret my tattoo as THE PRISONER is being made into a feature film and an updated BBC series.

OMEGA MAN is now The Will Smith blockbuster I AM LEGEND.

Any more???

update: Holy crap there is more! THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is being remade by Fox. WHY?

I've never seen this teaser before. It actually looks like a film I'd want to see.

Yeah like that... now put your foot up behind you,no, to the front, on the tube in front...below. Yeah... now relax. Darling, twist your foot.

This is the most uncomfortable pose I have ever seen. Her foot looks like its going to twist off. Its a novel idea in marketing. If you cant get hands to show the product use feet.
Uh... your tube is showing.

I've been looking for a ringtone that is familiar yet obscure enough to annoy people who try and guess it.

By gum I've found it! The theme to "The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries"

Its a cool Stu Phillips ditty that says "HEY 1978 is calling!"

Listen to the theme here

In honor of my new ringtone here is a vintage Nancy Drew Halloween costume. It looks nothing like Pamela Sue Martin.. but who cares.
Note it is labeled as:
Kinda makes me wish I could wear the box.

I'll tell you the title and you can tell me why I'm pissed its being made.... ok?


Hey! You dropped something.

All sorts of things turn up at Disneyland's lost-and-found department: Besides 40,000 hats and 20,000 eyeglasses recovered each year, passports, a glass eye, even a toilet seat, have been found.
Kay McFaul, 85, who retired as the 20-year head of the amusement park's lost-and-found department, remembers the woman who lost her glass eye 25 years ago on Main Street. McFaul immediately headed for the street-sweeper lot.
"I ran out to the street-sweeper area and found the workers playing marbles with the eyeball," McFaul says. "They didn't know it was a prosthetic."

Now, it's Betsy Chan's job to hunt down owners of lost items. Many of the 200,000 items turned in annually are reunited with rightful owners due in large part to Chan's sleuthing.
She sifts through bags of lost-and-found keys, searching for attached car-rental tags or miniature grocery-store cards that can be traced to the owners. She also makes calls on misplaced cellular telephones to find contact numbers.
Park officials said 70 percent of the found articles are returned within one day.
The Disneyland store room is full of unclaimed items that include oxygen tanks, dentures, shoes, jewelry and clothing. There's even a $5,000 electric wheelchair.
No one ever claimed the long-lost toilet seat or a leg cast.

Happy Easter.

To celebrate the undeadening of the son of God I took a trip to South Pasadena. A pilgrimage to see one of the most famous houses in horror film history.

Michael Meyers house.

Inside this house Judith Meyers was stabbed to death by the clown-faced Michael.
The next time he was in that house he was the William Shatner faced devil himself.

I'm not looking forward to Rob Zombies Re-imagining of this classic low budget horror film.

He doesnt like the new food.

So Pen, the cat, has always likes Whiskas Ground mealtime. Ever since the pet food recall this food has dissapeared. It is not part of the food recall yet it is nowhere to be found. Instead every store I have been in has tons of Nine-Lives brand cat slurry. He doesnt like it but is forced to eat it. Plus... It makes his catbox real stanky. yuck!
Where is the Whiskas?

They could have called it something else!

The Walt Disney Co. announced yesterday that it would open its "Fairytale Wedding" program to same-sex couples in response to criticism of its policies from in early March.

The "Fairytale Wedding" package includes "a wedding planner, the ceremony, food and beverages, flowers and table decorations" according to Reuters, and is available for $8,000. An upgraded version of the package includes "a ride to the ceremony in the Cinderella coach, costumed trumpeters heralding the couple's arrival, and attendance by Mickey and Minnie Mouse characters dressed in formal attire."

Disney's policy had limited same-sex couples to renting meeting rooms at the resort for weddings and commitment ceremonies but had barred them from using locations at the Disney resorts created specifically for weddings.

Said Disney Parks and Resorts spokesman Donn Walker: "We are updating our Fairy Tale Wedding guidelines to include commitment ceremonies. This is consistent with our policy of creating a welcoming, respectful and inclusive environment for all of our guests. We are not in the business of making judgments about the lifestyle of our guests. We are in the hospitality business and our parks and resorts are open to everyone"

Once you go yak...

Yak meat is deep red in color, and its taste is best described as beef-like but with a more delicate flavor. Because yak come from cold climates, most of the fat is located on the outside of the carcass and can easily be trimmed. Yak and yak crosses are 95 to 97% lean, very low in fat and cholesterol. They have just 20% of beef's level of 'bad' palmitic acid, but they have higher levels of the 'good' oleic acid and polyunsaturated fats. The different proportions of fatty acids give yak meat a unique and delicious flavor with the juiciness we all enjoy. These proportions are very similar in pure yak vs. one-half-yak and in grass fed vs. grain fed yak. Yak meat is high in protein, and it has fewer calories than beef, bison, elk, or even skinless chicken breast. Yak meat is just what our health-conscious society is looking for! This one was fed a diet of candy canes. Minty!

Very little is known about this alien called Yak Face seen lurking about Jabba's palace. The whiskered biped stands about 2.2 meters tall, had three-clawed hoof-like hands, and said very little. He accompanied Jabba the Hutt's entourage into the deserts in the ill-fated attempt to execute Luke Skywalker. Aboard Jabba's sail barge, this alien forced C-3PO to translate an argument between him and Ree-Yees, which quickly deteriorated into a drunken brawl.

The other "y" meat:
The Yeti is an alleged apelike animal said to inhabit the Himalaya region of Nepal and Tibet. The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the people indigenous to the region, and are part of their history and mythology.
Most mainstream scientists, explorers and writers consider current evidence of the Yeti's existence to be weak and better explained as hoax, legend or misidentification of known species. Even today, the Yeti remains one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology. Not as tasty as Yak.

The North Hollywood Pacific Electric Car Station is located at the intersection of Chandler and Lankershim Boulevards. It was part of a very efficient rail system that was dismantled due to competition from the automobile in 1952, though the station itself is still standing. This picture probably dates from 1919.

sue sue sue sue sue!

Its not just known for the Spahn Ranch.

Chernobyl in the Ukraine, Windscale in the UK, and... the Santa Susana Field Lab in California. Those incidents are the top three releasers of radioactive iodine in nuclear power history. But number three slipped largely under the radar.
The Boeing-Rocketdyne Nuclear Facility, also referred to as the Santa Susana Field Lab, is located about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, near the Simi Valley area. And in 1959, a clogged coolant channel in a 20-megawatt nuclear reactor lead to the melting of 30 percent of the fuel elements in the reactor core.

Iodine-131 – that is, radioactive iodine – was released in doses estimated up to 100 times that of Three Mile Island, enough to cause various types of cancers and thyroid abnormalities, particularly in children under the age of 15. And while radioactive iodine only has an eight day half life, that's more than enough time to get into the local dairy cows and contaminate the milk supply.

The facility also released many other radioactive materials, as well as other toxic chemicals, over a period of years. After an eight-year-long court battle, more than 100 local residents reached a settlement with Boeing-Rocketdyne.The Former Sodium Reactor Experiment Containment Building where the 1959 meltdown occurred.

The petting zoo.

Sometime in the early 1970's Universal Studios offered not only a tour of the lot but a petting zoo.
This zoo was located just in front of where the TERMINATOR 3-d film is shown today. The petting zoo offered a lovely cliffside view of the San Fernando valley and a couple of giant Galapagos turtles for sticky little brats to sit on. It was a horrible place full of sad animals. Almost as bad as that lion they used to keep drugged at Magic Mountain. For a few bucks you could sit right next to this sickly lion and get your picture snapped. The poor thing was so high it couldn't stand up.

Where did those animals go and when did these petting zoos shut down?

If I remember correctly the lion at Magic mountain mauled a child sometime around 1978 and had to be killed.
I have no idea when the universal petting zoo closed. I also recall a simple playground near the petting zoo as well.

Does anyone remember this?

Where was Monkey Island?

While the address of Monkey island read 3300 Cahuenga Blvd. the actual address is now a public park with no indication that monkey island existed. There are some interesting foundations just on the other side of the freeway.
This closely matched the description of Monkey Island. Its a prime place and ... who knows... the numbering of the streets may have very well changed in the past 80 years.

This may simply be the remains of the estate that once was at the corner of Barham and Cahuenga. The interesting thing is that it has a mock hill and a little cave and about a 150 foot foundation.

This is a photo of the new Hollywood freeway going thru the Cahuenga pass. (note that creepy bathhouse-esque FANSCAPE building is at the corner of Barham and Cahuenga. its still there. Who knew it was that old!)
The red "circle" is the address of Monkey Island and the green "circle" is where I found the mystery foundation on the other side of the freeway. This foundation is inside the fenceline of universal studios. It is not a set. it is clearly the foundation for an outdoor plaza of some sort. There was an estate here at one point but I have yet to find pictures of it. The only picture I have located with the estate partially visible is :

Its interesting to see the trolly tracks down the center of the freeway. These went all the way to Vineland Ave.

The original post:

Monkey Island
This unusual amusement was located at 3300 Cahuenga Boulevard, on the Valley side of Cahuenga Pass—the Times usually described it as on Ventura Boulevard. Operated by Adolph Weiss, Monkey Island opened December 9, 1938. A large herd of monkeys, numbering in the hundreds, roamed over an "island" about 150 feet long, with a 40-foot plastic mountain, surrounded by moats and covered with netting. There were palm trees, swings and billy oats for the monkeys to amuse themselves, and waterfalls where they could keep cool. Visitors paid to come in and watch the monkeys and feed them peanuts and vegetables. When the moats were drained in August, 1940, about 100 monkeys fled. Weiss calmly told police "they'll be back," and most apparently did return at feeding time. Escapes were common. Filmaker Warren Miller recalls monkey island:
"I had come to visit a new tourist attraction that was built right near the first Valley stop on The Pacific Electric Railroad, the route of the Big Red Cars. Some investor had built a 40-foot-high, fake plaster and cement mountain and surrounded it with a 20-foot-wide moat of slimy, green, stagnant water. The attraction was 100 undernourished, morose monkeys sitting on the concrete mountain watching you watching them. For 10 cents, you could watch the monkeys. For another five cents, you could buy a bag of peanuts and throw them to the monkeys."
When Monkey Island closed is unknown. It is now a city park.
