Good to see you, man!
Another member from the Desert! Nice!
Thanks, you guys, nice to be here!
Love the avatar dude!
It's slightly different. It would be better if it were smoking. I always thought Ruffy should have left the smoking av.
Ok, chris. I gotta ask. Who's the guy in the top hat?
He's the Son Of Svengoolie. He was one of those late night hosts who played the old black and white horror movies at night, and made fun of them.
Yeah we had one of them when I was a high school kid back in Tulsa. The show was called Dr. Mazeppa Pompazoidi's Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting.
Now Mazeppa had this young kid on there that went by the name of Teddy Jack Eddy. Who you'll recognize as a very young Gary Busey. About 18-19 years old, and yes, he's always been fucking crazy! If you ever watched The Outsiders or HeeHaw, you'll recognize Mazeppa as well. (Gailard Sartain)
1970's late nite humor. Looked real good when I was a stoned high school student.
Gary Busey? These old late night shows were the best. Small time stuff just for local markets.
Yeah they'd play shit like old Buck Rogers movies. Came on really late on Saturday night. Now did you ever see that movie The Outsiders?
I don't think so. Svengoolie played movies like Dracula, and the Creature From The Black Lagoon. He threw around rubber chickens. These show probably wouldn't do well now, but back then it was the show, or Pong.
The Outsiders was an 80s movie filmed in my home town of Tulsa! Matter of fact, my oldest sister was a close friend of the author, who wrote it on notebook paper when she was 17 years old.
And all these actors you know are waaaaay young.

Love that damn movie man! I watch it from time to time. Never get tired of it.
Back in Oklahoma we read the book and watch the movie in school. I love that movie. I would love to see what Tulsa was like back before you had to worry about getting shot everyday.
