The Outbreak — What would you do?

It’s Halloween and it’s a Friday, what a better way to take a little break at work!

Found this on (one of my favorite sites.) If you like zombie movies, you’ll like this.

The OutBreak Why are disclaimers always placed on the bottom? Shouldn’t they appear on the top, advising the audience of explicit content? If you are still interested (and not afraid of blood and zombies) then The Outbreak is for you. The Outbreak is an interactive movie. At certain points of the movie you will be prompted to make a choice – these choices will determine your survival.. I probably won’t survive in face of the zombies; I tried to help but unfortunately found myself dead time after time. Want more zombies? Check out Lost Zombies.

Scooby’s All Star Laff-a-lympics

There must be something in the air, I am on this memory lane trip right now. I can’t remember what I did last week, but when it comes to things that happened 35 years ago, I’m good to go!

Do you remember Scooby’s All Star Laff-a-lympics?

Scooby’s Laff-a-lympics would be the first, and the biggest one. An entire 45 Cartoon characters were jammed into thirty minutes, and competed in about four out-of-the-ordainary events. Scooby’s in about a third of them.

The three teams were:

The Scooby Doobies

  • Scooby (team captain)
  • Shaggy
  • Tinker & Speed Buggy (From Speed Buggy)
  • Dynomutt & Blue Falcon (From Dynomutt)
  • Hong Kong Phooey
  • Scooby-Dum (Scooby’s dumb cousin.)
  • Jeannie & Babu
  • Captain Caveman & The Teen Angels

The Yogi-Yahooeys

  • Yogi (team captain)
  • Boo Boo
  • Huckleberry Hound
  • Snooper & Blabber
  • Wally Gator
  • Quick Draw McGraw
  • Mr. Jinks & Pixie and Dixie
  • Augie Doggie & Doggie Daddy
  • Grape Ape
  • Yakky Doodle
  • Cindy Bear (Yogi’s girlfriend.)

The Really Rottens

  • Mumbly (The Muttley look-alike from “Mumbly, relentless detective”)
  • Dastardly, Dinky, Dirty Dalton (Three cowboys who cheat like hell.)
  • Daisy Mayhem (A hillbilly)
  • Sooey Pig
  • The Great Fondoo & Brak, the Magic Rabbit (Great fondoo and his rabbit.)
  • Dred Barron
  • Orful Octopus
  • Mr and Mrs. Creepley and son (A couple of evil Addams-Family type characters)

I found this site Scooby Doo’s All Star Laff-a-lympics (1978-1980) and it has more that you ever wanted to know about the show.

“Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody” by David Lee Roth

Why do I like this song so much??

I have been listening to a lot of different songs on my iPod lately. One that I keep playing over and over is — “Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody” by David Lee Roth. Not sure why I like this song so much. I have never really been a huge fan of David Lee Roth, a.k.a. Diamond Dave. And I love Louis Prima version from 1956 (video).

When I found the video on YouTube, there are no words to describe it. Check out what he’s wearing! Did I miss the memo saying that guys with long hair were hot?? Then there is the Michael Jackson look-a-like. And I love the Billy Idol spoof. This video has a little bit of everything.

One of my favorite lyrics of the song is…

Hummala bebhuhla zeebuhla boobuhla
hummala bebhuhla zeebuhla bop

Here are some facts that I didn’t know about “Just a Gigolo”:

  • It was originally adapted from an Austrian hit “Schoner Gigolo,” written in 1928 and was first sung in America by the French star Irene Bordoni
  • “Just a Gigolo” appeared in a 1931 film, a 1932 Betty Boop cartoon and a 1993 TV-series, all titled after the song
  • In 1931, this became Bing Crosby’s first-ever hit song as a solo artist (#12 Pop Hit)
  • “Just a Gigolo” is best known in a form first recorded by Louis Prima in 1956, where it was paired in a medley with another old standard, “I Ain’t Got Nobody” (words by Roger Graham and music by Spencer Williams, 1915).
  • In 1978, the Village People recorded a cover of Prima’s version — would of loved to see a video of this version!
  • David Lee Roth’s cover in 1985 that reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100
  • So hopefully you have this song on your iPod, it’s a fun song to listen to when you are stressed out and need a laugh or two.

So in the words of all that recorded this song…

Bop bozadee bozadee bop zitty bop!

DWTS — Finally!!

The couple with the lowest combined judges’ scores and votes:  Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas are going home.

From DWTS Live Blog

It’s about time… Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas have finally been voted off. Yes, she’s in her 80’s, but come on she was good for a laugh or two, but it was time for her to go.

The song that Susan Lucci and Tony Dovolani danced to the other night was: “Si Señor!”—Gloria Estefan.

Frozen Frog Eggs

I sa this recipe and thought it sound strange and something perfect for Halloween.

The scariest holiday of the year calls for chilling fare — and these frosty pops fit the bill.

Frozen Frog Eggs

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 Kiwi fruit
  • 1 cup of limeade (we used a natural brand without artificial color)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 8 3-ounce paper or plastic cups
  • Popsicle sticks

1. To make a batch, cut a ripe, peeled kiwi fruit into chunks. Blend the fruit chunks with 1 cup of limeade and a tablespoon or so of honey until the mixture is somewhat smooth (some small lumps are fine).

2. Slice a second kiwi into eight thin pieces and press them into the bottoms of eight 3-ounce plastic or paper cups. Pour the blended mixture into the cups, filling them each about halfway.

3. Place the cups in a Pyrex baking dish and cover them with foil. Insert a popsicle stick through the foil and into each cup (the foil will hold the sticks in place) and freeze the pops until solid, about 4 hours.

4. When you’re ready to remove the pops from their molds, you can loosen them by briefly dipping the bottoms of the cups in warm water if necessary. Makes 8.

DWTS – Week 6

Here is my latest take on the dance on this week’s show.

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke – (Viennese Waltz) I just haven’t gotten into Maurice and Cheryl’s dancing this season. I think they should go before Susan and Tony.

Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer – (Jive) Finally Lance and Lacey looked like they were dancing the way that they should have been dancing along. I don’t think they will be in the bottom for tomorrow’s show.

Susan Lucci and Tony Dovolani – (Mambo) Tony with an unbutton shirt… surprise! Good dance but I’m afraid if they continue to keep Cloris on the show, Susan and Tony might be the next couple to go.

Brooke Burke and Derek Hough – (Rumba) I agree it wasn’t there best dance, but they should make it to the next round.

Nice chemistry between them, lots of swooning and spins and graceful extensions and poses.

From: Dave Campbell (Dancing with the Stars — Live Blog)

Cloris Leachman and Corky Ballas – (Cha Cha Cha) She needs to GO!! The “dance” looked like it was in slow-motion. And what about that lift/twirl they did! I only wish I could “dance” like she does at my age!! Like I said before, I wish Corky was with someone better, I would have like to see him dance more.

Cody Linley and Julianne Hough – (Samba) Julianne has done wonders with Cody, he didn’t look like a spaz on the dance floor. I don’t think they are as good as Brooke and Derek, but in the top three (maybe).

* I am just waiting for Bruno and Carrie Ann to punch each other out!

Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson – (Rumba) I like watching Warren dance, I like his extensions (I watch this show too much!!) I agree with the judges, there could have been more dancing. I think they will be in the top three at the end.

The Old School Hip Hop Group Dance routine — this should be interesting. Susan Lucci and Hip-Hop doesn’t seem to go together.

Here is my favorite pair of the week: Lance and Lacey (this week only):

Same as all of the previous week’s: Cloris and Corky, it’s time for them to be voted off the show. I think going forward, the stars need to be more serious about the competition and the dances.

And for the true die- hard DWTS fans, visit the Dancing with the Stars — Live Blog, it is as much fun watching the show and following the Live Blog to see what other fans are saying.

Another site I go to during the show is: Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 7) on Wikipedia. It give to information on the scoring of the couples and the songs that were used. Here are the songs that were used for Week 6.

(They didn’t have the song that Susan & Tony danced to on the site yet.)

Detroit Lions (0-7)

Come Lions you can do it!! A perfect “winless” season is just what you all need.
