Before MST3K there was … The Texas 27 Film Vault!

Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of this neglected cult show from the mid-1980′s.

EPISODE ORIGINALLY BROADCAST: Saturday May ??, 1987 from 10:30pm to 1:00 am. Exact date is still being debated. Any Vaulties with further information please feel free to contact me.

EXTRAS: Every single nanosecond of this film is riff-worthy, so with the usual comedy sketches from the Film Vault Corps (“the few, the proud, the sarcastic”) added on plus commercials there was no time for an episode of a Republic or Columbia serial before the movie this time. Randy and Richard, our machine-gun toting Film Vault Technicians First Class were able to get to the movie quickly.  Continue reading

COLLEGE BASEBALL POSTSEASON ACTION CONTINUES

El Camino College logoSO-CAL DIVISION: PLAY-IN ROUND – GAME ONE – The game of the day yesterday was this classic of the diamond played between the 17th seeded EL CAMINO COLLEGE WARRIORS and the 16th seeded MOUNT SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE MOUNTIES. After two scoreless Innings the Warriors put up a run in the top of the 3rd with the Mounties eventually tying things up in the bottom of the 6th. El Camino College responded with another run of their own in the top of the 7th Inning and rode that ball to a 2-1 victory. Credit Andrew Burschinger with the win.

The Cougars took a 2-0 lead in the top of the 2nd Inning but by the bottom of the 3rd the Huskies had tied the game up. In the 5th and 7th Innings College of the Canyons logged a pair of runs to make it a 4-2 Cougar advantage. In the bottom of the 7th East Los Angeles College again knotted up the game. After the Cougars went on top again 5-4 in the top of the 8th the Huskies used their half of the Inning to take their first lead of the game at 6-5, which turned out to be the final score, too. East L.A.’s closer Shawn Kennedy got the win.  Continue reading

BLACK OAK ARKANSAS: THE OFFICIAL BAND OF FRONTIERADO

Black Oak ArkansasThe Frontierado holiday is just a little over 3 months away so here is the first related post for the calendar year. As the Lifetime Commissioner of Frontierado I am empowered to designate an Official Band for that greatest of all holidays! In keeping with my blog’s theme of emphasizing those things which are neglected I’ve named Black Oak Arkansas as the Offical Band of Frontierado. Headed by legendary front man Jim Dandy, whom David Lee Roth always pointed to as a huge influence, this country-rock/ r&b band thoroughly kicked ass. Click here for a quick (3 minute) representation of the group’s sound: Continue reading

THE NATIONAL IMBECILE: LITTLE BARRY OBAMA DOESN’T EVEN RECALL WHAT ‘THE OBAMA DOCTRINE’ IS

 

"This president stuff is MUCH harder than getting D's in college was!"

“This president stuff is MUCH harder than getting D’s in college was!”

It’s official – Barack Obama is dumber than Sarah Palin on her worst day. Remember the fun we all had laughing when Vice Presidential candidate Palin proved incapable of adequately explaining the Bush Doctrine back in 2008? Well, the weak, inept and crooked little man named Barack Obama proved he can outdo THAT! Little Barry today proved incapable of recalling, let alone explaining, HIS OWN DOCTRINE!

Anyone who wants to check that can search it out online and use their own preferred website. I always say to do that with items like this because there is no point linking to a site – American Liberals and American Conservatives are such fanatics they refuse to believe anything that appears at a website not of their own choosing.

Knock yourselves out, people! This pathetic little man is one enormous joke. “Period” as Little Barry himself said when he was lying about people being able to keep their doctors under Obamacare. Continue reading
