50's B-MOVIE BAD GIRL YVETTE VICKERS FOUND DEAD



People magazine has the sad story of 50's B-movie bad girl Yvette Vickers death.
She played the sexy "other woman" in Attack of the 50 Foot Woman and Attack of the Giant Leeches.

A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA



I think that since he got rid of Osama bin-Ladden and is the first African-American President of the United States, the 2012 Presidential election should be canceled and we should just give him a second term.


Of course, opinions, like this, is why I'm considered the Super Villain of the Ozarks!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

DESDINOVA & HIS TWIN BROTHER ARE ON THE BEACH



I just wanted you readers to know that I and my "good twin brother" have exiled ourselves to the beach, as they say in the industry.



Also look for a change in this blog. We have been looking at trends in other blogs (such as Retrospace and Neato Coolville), as well as what post on this site have been most popular. We have decided that a change may take place.



There are many great blogs covering local and national news. I can't keep up, so I will be shifting my focus away from that stuff and focusing on entertainment and pop culture. Of course, when a person focuses on pop culture and entertainment, Ozarkers get upset. As you know, I LOVE TO UPSET OZARKERS!

THE REASON A NATIONAL ANTI-BULLYING LAW NEEDS REPARATIONS FOR VICTIMS



As you know from reading this blog, I believe we need a national law to deal with the bullying problem. In November, I wrote a post about how I feel that there needs to be a strict federal anti-bullying law. This law should also require the bully and his/her family to pay reparations to the victim.



Some people would say, "Desdinova, why would you believe such a thing is necessary?" My reason has a name: Donny Dickweed (pictured above).



Donny was both a jock and a preppy. His grandfather was the president of the local bank and his family owned a company that made recliners and mattresses. Donny picked on both me and my "good twin brother." As a matter of fact, Donny Dickweed is one of the models for the bad guy, Johnny Waldorf, in my "good twin brother's" novel, Real George.



What is Donny Dickweed doing today? I saw his profile on Facebook and he lives in a large beach house in Florida with a hot wife. He is in real estate and is (of course) a Republican. Meanwhile, I live in a small apartment and make minimum wage, even though I have two college degrees and work in the mass media.



I feel every time somebody buys a recline or mattress, I and my "good twin brother" should get at least 75-percent of the profit to make up for all the "heart-checks," "pink bellies" and "Does-this-hurt?" sessions we were forced to endure from this guy. I also want to note that he didn't just pick on me and my "good twin brother" but other students both male and female. I once saw him choke a female student until she nearly passed out. He also called Eunice Moneymaker "zit face" until she cried.



There were very few teachers and administrators who would stand up to this jerk, because his family were very prominant in the community. His grandfather has a monument to dedicated to him or something like that. Donny was allowed to get away with this sort of behavior because of his family's money and power.



If you are wondering, neither I nor my "good twin brother" are friends with Donny Dickweed on Facebook. Eunice Moneymaker is but, as I have pointed out before, Eunice didn't have good taste in men or she would have went steady with me.



The fact is one never forgets the scars left by a bully, however if the bully and his family had to pony up some dough to the victim (75 percent of every recliner and mattress sold), the pain might hurt less.

WHO WILL REPLACE CHARLIE SHEEN ON TWO & A HALF MEN?

If you haven't heard yet, Charlie Sheen has been fired from "Two and a Half Men." All Access reported this, since Charlie Sheen has weaseled his way on to morning radio shows in a way that would make Billy Long proud.



The question is "WHO WILL REPLACE CHARLIE SHEEN ON TWO AND A HALF MEN?" and "WHY IS DESDINOVA USING ALL CAPS FOR THIS?"



Here is my guess. Charlie Sheen will either be replaced by


John McIntire or

Ted McGinley.

That is usually who replaces people on TV shows.

I DON'T LIKE GUYS WHO WEAR SUITS


I don't like guys who wear suits. They are usually preppy douche bags, who have a fetish-like obsession with money.


Case in point: two guys who I had to deal with at work today. They were Republicans (naturally) and they were wearing matching suits. I just kept think to myself, "What did these two dimwits do to screw up their lives to make themselves so uncool?" and also "Why is everyone here at work acting like these guys are cooler than me? These guys are dorks who wear suits!!!" The sad part is these geeks make more money than me.


An opinion, like this one, is why I'm considered the Super Villain of the Ozarks!!!

Some of the classic pieces in my Ipod comedy section:

  • "Class Clown" by George Carlin
  • "Father Flotski's Triumph" by Lenny Bruce
  • "One Leg Too Few" by Peter Cook & Dudley Moore
  • "The Further Adventures of Nick Danger" by Firesign Theater
  • "Driving Instructor" by Bob Newhart

  • "Sister Mary Elephant" by Cheech & Chong
  • "The Dentist" by Bill Cosby

  • "Buckwheat" by Eddie Murphy
  • "Mom Liked You Best" by the Smothers Brothers

A pretty good selection of great comedy. You notice there isn't any Larry the Cable Guy in my Ipod.

TURA SATANA DIES


The star of the 1966 cult film, Faster Pussycat Kill Kill!, has died. Tura Satana played the tough go-go dancer Varla in the Russ Meyer's film.
Dave Itzkopf of the New York Times has a story about her.

I have this gem of Naughty Springfield history.

COMPOSER JOHN BARRY DIES AT 77


Many of my favorite film scores were composed by John Barry. Barry is best know for his work on the James Bond films. One of his first film scores was for a 50's juvenile delinquent film Beat Girl. That song, featuring the twangy guitar of Vic Flick, was recycled by Fatboy Slim into the 90's hit song "Rockefeller Skank."

He died over the weekend at age 77. Here is the BBC news obit. If you want to check out his music you can find a whole page of downloads at Amazon.com.

IMPRESSIONIST DAVID FRYE DIES AT 77


One of my favorite comedy LPs of all time is I AM THE PRESIDENT by David Frye. One of the tracks features President-elect Richard Nixon taking a tour of the White House at 2 a.m. from lame duck President Lyndon Johnson. My favorite line is President Johnson yelling to his wife, "Company is coming up, Lady Bird! Beautify yer self!"


In a skit on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour entitled "A Fairy Tale for Our Times," Frye played Presidents Johnson and Nixon, as well as Sen. Hubert Humphrey and Gov. George Wallace.

CLYDE CLIFFORD'S BEAKER STREET TO LEAVE THE AIRWAVES

Clyde Clifford and Beaker Street are not just Arkansas radio legends, but legends in the Midwest and Southern part of the United States. Sadly, Clyde Clifford has been told by the management of KKPT that his last show will be on Feb. 6, 2011.

Beaker Street was one of the many radio shows that inspired me to get into radio. I used it as a model for my "Psychedelic Limits" segment of the Midnite Snack on KSMU in the late 80s.

Unfortunately, radio does no longer understands the value programs like Beaker Street and Clyde Clifford. Most people in radio management these days prefer talk shows hosted by sleazy financial advisers and right-wing, conservative, hate mongers or infomercials dangerous weight loss supplements and "auctions' for stuff that used to be given away as prizes to "the fifth caller."

Of course, opinions, like this one, is why I'm considered the Super Villain of the Ozarks!!! Mwu-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

First a short interview with Clyde Clifford during a show. It was conducted by a reporter from KUAR.



Next an aircheck of the original KAAY Beaker Street show. The aircheck is from the early 70s. It is 13 O'clock on Krune-day, 55th of Bloong. Heavy, man!
