Now I have to search WFMU's blog to see if anyone's done an epic Jimmy Hoffa song post.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 11:39am MD:

As a Union Man this is my new favorite song!!!!

Jimmy Hoffa disappeared the day fofo was born! So I'm sorry, world for that bad deal you got into!

Ken, how is tonight's SSD show going to work? Will you tell your listeners about the repeat contest? Will it be a secret?

Didn't they find Jimmy Hoffa in Geraldo's vaults on the Al Capone show?

Honestly, I thought he was already gone. Apparently not.

Thank you, Ken. And a fond farewell to the yodeling Canadian.

...and yet Slim Goodbody (presumably) still walks this earth, a free man. There is no justice.
Avatar 11:43am Danne D:

Slim Whitman (which in my youth we basically knew from those commercials for his albums) was sorta the go-to name when you wanted to dog the other kids on the playground as square (what are you listening to - Slim Whitman?). Showing the cynicism of my generation from a young age as all the man was was a sincere and wonderful performer. Thank goodness for the ability to grow up a little :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Sem Chumbo:

The late pop singer Michael Jackson cited Whitman as one of his ten favorite vocalists. Wikipedia.
  11:45am Cecile:

Slim had a serious set of pipes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am Rich in Washington:

I remember those Slim Whitman commercials. Seems like he was even in them, pitching his compilations, if memory serves.
I also remember playing some of his records at the wrong speed and the yodeling sounded funny. I was overjoyed to see the use of his music in Mars Attacks. I wonder what he thought of that.

no jiff for the black betty?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Caryn:

Dammit, Wednesdays better not be like this! Missed the whole show! So, gif roundup:
-Dave, oy. Dunno, first I thought it could've been from "The Man Who Causes a Storm", but that's not Yujiro Ishihara, so no. Actually, the drummer looks a lot like a young Takeshi Kitano, but he didn't have any young roles like that, so no again. I could see this being from a film of Hasebe, Nishikawa, Deme, Fukasaku or even Suzuki, but can't think of a specific one.
-Anyhoo, as I've said, "The Big Store"
-Bardot in "Babette Goes to War"
-hmm, not sure about the legs. Immediately brings to mind early Polanski, like "Knife in the Water" or "Cul-de-Sac", but I don't think it's either of those. Also reminds me of those island-bound Bergman movies, but probably not that either. And I ain't gonna start googling this stuff, so...
-"The Golem"
-okay, just had to go google the Chinese opera pic. Couldn't help myself. Apparently, it's a North Korean and Chinese soldier embracing in 1971's "Raid on the White Tiger Regiment". Hah! Apparently, the opera includes the rousing aria "Defeat The Imperialists, The Vicious Wolves." Isn't that a Khlam track?
-the fabulous Mabel Normand from her 1917 comedy with Fatty Arbuckle, "Fatty and Mabel Adrift"
-the seaside graves are from "Nosferatu"
-"Dream Twister" video from "Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri" video game
-and finally, Coleen Gray in the carnival-based fabulousness that is "Nightmare Alley". Highly recommended!
  7:27pm Robert:

The marching poodles are from "Babette Goes to War"? Anyway, I was more interested in how that was done technically than where it came from. It appears to be clever editing of a shot of real dogs with people in dog suits.

The Batman one I recognize from Web site SuperDickery.
