    There's not much evidence to work with here. She's paired with someone else, so you can't hear her that well...and then there's the fact that they purposely cast bad singers, so while she has the best voice in the ad, she may be sounding much better in comparison.

    So the question still remains of whether or not she can sing.

    It's news to me they once sold disposable razors with just one blade.

    Yeah, I also feel disappointed that I didn't find something where we could hear her more clearly.

    On a side note, I have heard Franc Luz sing something other than "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". I have soundtracks for two different versions of Little Shop of Horrors, and the one for the original Off-Broadway production has him play sadistic dentist Dr. Orin Scrivello. As for whether or not I enjoyed listening to him, I thought his rendition of "Dentist!" didn't compare favorably to Steve Martin's.

    This is cool. Somebody actually taped a Jabberjaw episode from its original 1976 airdate. Why is it cool? Because the theme song is slightly different than the version many people grew up with in reruns.

    This was probably never seen since the original airings in 1976.


    For comparison, the version seen in current reruns.

    That's the same recording I have (and based a review off of). I didn't know the theme was different; this was the only time I ever saw Jabberjaw.

    I guess I can put that down as the most surreal thing I've seen today.

    I had to see this with my own eyes (and ears) to believe it happened.

    It's rare you find one of these completely intact, with the ads and everything. Unfortunately I found it too late -- it's split into 5 parts and Part 2 is already missing, equaling fifteen minutes. Bah.

    These poor kids don't have a prayer. The intent of the evil video creator is to make the watcher feel old, but this was totally me at that age with the TRS-80. 80's computers served a different purpose than those of any decade afterward. They were strictly for adult hobbyists. Not every home had one yet because to the layman, they made no sense.

    That is so cruel not telling them where the power button is. That would've taken them hours to figure out. When I got my Apple I had an attachment that moved the power button to the front. It also doubled as a cooling fan, as the Apple didn't have that either.

    So someone decided to give voices to the classic spider-man vs powdered toast man comic:

    Should I feel surprised that Seth Green could still remember this?

    He's actually not in that clip. He was the quarterback -- and nearly unrecognizable from his current state. I did a double take when I saw the credits on that one, and until now, I just assumed Hollywood had two Seth Greens.

    This is pretty interesting. Not only are the well-known chopped scenes here, but there are a lot of subtle differences. Don't Whiz On The Electric Fence has a different cover; the kid's crack is showing and you can see a visible stream. Naturally Nick kicked it back for revision.

    So, for some reason, the opening minutes from The Dark Knight Rises (specifically Bane's introduction) have become a bit of a meme as of late. Possibly the best thing to come out of the meme is this really catchy song based on the scene:
