A couple of wonderful bits that I would like to share.......
I have posted these clips on the Seti boards a few times, but I don't believe I have shared them here recently.

You might enjoy.

Oscar Mayer...a name that most of you know very well.
These are the recollections of a man by the name of Jerry Ringlien. He was in advertising back in the '60s and was responsible for some of the most memorable advertising campaigns of my youth, and probably some of yours.

He is an amazing story teller, so it's no wonder he found a place in the advertising profession.
I fire up these clips a couple of times a year just to hear him tell the stories.
I am thankful that they have survived on youtube for these many years.

The story behind the Oscar Mayer 'wiener song'.

And one of the most memorable commercials ever broadcast....
My Balogna Has a First Name...

I know this is really old stuff, but if you are my age...58...or a couple of years one way or the other, and had a TV at the time....you saw these commercials.
And I'll bet my bottom dollar that Jerry's skill at making them memorable worked on you too.

Especially for all those who need it. This policeman in Dover, Delaware "Shake's it Off" in style: http://youtu.be/8XFBUM8dMqw

I know you secretly sing along there...


There's some handy police-image damage control there... They certainly are needing a lot as of late.

Time to resurrect this thread, with the best video clip ever: David Hasselhoff, True Survivor. I guess we now all want to see this Kung Fury movie, ey?

Nay?

Back at the Capitol Records studios, late at night, when I could afford to get a bit of time at the tapes.......
There were some things recorded that never saw the light of day.
She broke through once or twice on TV...but the PR machine would never let her get onto the radio stations that could make a difference in that day and age to make a star shine.

She had made one too many true comments about the way things worked and pissed off a major exec at Capitol.
So the fuckers basically shelved her career. Tossed her in the closet and locked her up.

I am kinda surprised that she has not gone to court after all these years to try to get some piece of meat from those folks.


She finally did get some in 1990, when she finally made the rock and roll hall of fame. She hints at it in her intro. She knew Elvis.... If she could have been with the boyz at Sun, some things might have been different.

The most wonderful and down to earth acceptance speech ever.

To this day, she has never explained to me just why she allows one of her promo shots to show the Capitol Records mike.
As I recall, she hated them for tossing us into the streets after we broke into one of their studios and were miking...Shake it all over.
Nothing like this version...LOL.

Jack and Wanda...amazing stuff.

Everything drops into place on this one single performance.
Watch it several times...focus on a different aspect.
The drummer is awesome. The backup ladies are so smiles. The keyboardist is whacking them hard.
Jack is at his best. Wanda is wonderful.

And note that Jack is billed as 'special guest', not the headliner.
The horns...OMG, the horns.

Ripped off licks and a commandeered drum set.
Ripped it up, we did.
And, if my recollection holds, she wrecked her guitar that night.
Tore it up pretty badly.

Almost broke the neck off running out of the studio from the cops.
It was never the same, but served her well for many years hence.
She might chime in one day and corroborate this.

The gurl was in tears.....


The clip and pic I reference now is from about a month later, when things had cooled off a bit. And her guitar master had a chance to do some repairs.

Meow.

This seems to be more about her backup band than about her.
Way too much emphasis placed on the band rather than Wanda.
It works on Rum and Coca Cola, however.

There are times when I get angry.
And at times I am justifiably so.
You do NOT understand what I and Lori have been through.
None of you can.
What remains of us is what I share with you here.
And that is all your business in it remains in total.

I don't have the notariety to indulge in this bit of shit................
Sex with 5000 women, really.
And she walks off the freaking set. And the interviewer carries on. C word.
She was not havin' it.

I am not any longer either.

You take me as you catch me from day to day, or not.

It is your choice whether to watch my channel or not.
I post what I will as I shall.
If it don't work for you, shut the connection down, don't mod me.

I have to reamain open to those few open minded individuals who unerstand free thinking and what it means to me and them.
If you try to shut me down here, I shall find other places to vent.
Where they understand better.

Meow.

I forget...........how many levels are there in the Dante thingy?

I am now on the lowest rung.
Life has it's lowest cast, I suppose, and there are those who must be there.

Not a nice place to live, but I have my purpose in life.

Now...call out Sandy, Gary.
I don't think Sandy wants the police involved, let's ask.

Uhh... Nat girlie things.
You are not supposed to be here.
I forget that my special space is invaded here.

I had a special thing with Natalie when she passed.

I know certain things. She was a swimmer, not a drowner.
She had a lot of life going for her at the time, not a downer.
I know things. And that is part of what makes my life sad at times.

I know things. Black Snake Moan.

And I can change things..........................

I pick up little gurlz on the side of the road at times.
Lori was a black snake. Almost dead by the side of the road that few travelled anymore. I came by and kissed her back to life. That is my story, however unlikely it is to have been so.

We are now traveling this life together until death do us part.
And that is not a vow preached by any religion. It is our life's story now.
