Throwback: Suavemente

Posted: December 27, 2011 by Keith Stone in Elvis Crespo, Throwback, videos

Suavemente by Elvis Crespo represents everything that is great about music videos. When the pioneers behind MTV launched the network on August 1, 1981, this is exactly what they had in mind: a dashing leading man, high concept art, provocative dance moves, sexy ladies, and groundbreaking special effects. OK, maybe not but I heard this song recently and the video is really everything you could ask for. Try not dancing when the music first starts playing. I dare you. That’s why Elvis Crespo is suavemente.

Throwback: Beware the Gays

Posted: December 23, 2011 by Keith Stone in the gays, Throwback, videos

Watch out! If somebody is personable and treats you with respect, you might dealing a homosexual. But don’t worry, Jimmy, you can spend time with your local boy scout leader, priest, or assistant football coach. This is like the most fucked up episode of The Twilight Zone ever. They should call it Night of the Friendly Gays.

Throwback: Video Dating

Posted: December 18, 2011 by Keith Stone in dating, Throwback, videos

I’m Phil. Most of my friends call me Big Phil.

Dating is tough. Nowadays you can go online, take a few minutes to answer some questions or write a profile, and be banging by midnight. Not so in the Dark Ages (the 80’s). According to my extensive research, they had something called video dating which entailed filming a profile. Then any interested ladies would call a number on their, I’m not sure if this is the correct word, telephone requesting a date. So complicated. Here’s a look of the best of the best. There’s a lot of mustaches and pretty much every line is comedy gold. And yes, if I had to film one of these, I would totally wear my viking outfit. That guy must’ve been dripping with pussy.

I think it’s Hanukkah or at least it feels like it should be Hanukkah, so here’s a treat for our Jewish friends out there: Adam Sandler’s Hanukkah Song. It always gets me in the mood for Christmas. And how do you suppose Sandler found all these random Jewish celebrities back in 1996? I could go on Wikipedia now and write a song about famous Episcopalians in like eight minutes but back then do you think there was some sort of list that said Harrison Ford was Jewish? This is what I think about during the holiday season.

Throwback: Ernest Goes To Jury Duty

Posted: November 29, 2011 by Keith Stone in Ernest, Throwback, videos

Ernest Goes To Jail was one of my favorite movies as a kid and the jury duty scene still makes me laugh, Vern. Jim Varney pulled double-duty in this one, playing Ernest and the nefarious Mr. Nash, who switched places with Ernest landing our hero in jail. However, Ernest escapes and eventually exacts revenge on those who wronged him. In short, Ernest Goes To Jail is like a more realistic version of The Shawshank Redemption. I can’t believe it didn’t win an Oscar.

Throwback: November Rain

Posted: November 22, 2011 by Keith Stone in Guns N' Roses, Throwback, videos

As I was driving home from the Giants game last night, it started pouring out of nowhere. It seemed appropriate, as does this song. You better believe that my wedding is going to be exactly like Axl Rose’s, from his outfit and hair to Slash being my ring bearer and playing kicking guitar solos in the middle of the desert while sweeping camera shots are being taken from a helicopter. And don’t forget about my way-too-hot wife being killed in a dramatic rainstorm during the reception. Fuck Thriller. This is the best music video of all-time. They don’t make them like they used to, kids.

Throwback: Jacko at the Super Bowl

Posted: November 15, 2011 by Keith Stone in Michael Jackson, Super Bowl, Throwback, videos

In honor of the end of his manslaughter trial, here’s Michael Jackson(s) at Super Bowl XXVII. It definitely has to go down as one of the best and most memorable halftime shows of all-time. What is it about the Jackson family that makes them so unforgettable at the Super Bowl? I actually have a friend who was involved with the PR of the show. He told me that Michael was supposed to pop out of the stage, wait about five seconds, and take his shades off. Of course, he poses for what seems like eternity while everyone in the back is freaking out over whether he’s actually going to do something. Michael Jackson, everybody!

Throwback: Fight of the Century

Posted: November 8, 2011 by Keith Stone in boxing, Joe Frazier, Muhammad Ali, Throwback, videos

Former heavywieght boxing Champion Joe Frazier died yesterday at the age of 67. He was a great fighter, and will forever be known for fighting Muhammad Ali at the Garden in the Fight of the Century. Both men went in undefeated but only one man, Frazier, left the ring that way.

Throwback: The Maze

Posted: October 31, 2011 by Keith Stone in The Maze, Throwback, videos

This is a very cool game. I don’t know how they pulled it off but if you stare at the dot, you can make it move through the maze. Just don’t let it hit the walls. Be careful at the end of Level 3. It’s a killer.

Throwback: Ferris Does Chicago

Posted: October 25, 2011 by Keith Stone in Ferris Bueller, Throwback, videos

When I was a kid, I always wanted to be Ferris Bueller. I still want to be Ferris Bueller. I mean, who wouldn’t want to make an entire city street break out dancing like he does? And Mia Sara? Probably the hottest girlfriend in the history of 80’s movies. She obviously couldn’t handle being away from Matthew Broderick’s charisma and vanished into obscurity after filming. It’s one of the great disappearances in human history along with the Holy Grail and LeBron in the fourth quarter if you ask me. One thing always bothered me though. Couldn’t they have dubbed over a voice for Ferris? I like to think that he had the singing chops to handle Wayne Newton and the Beatles.
