This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Top Ten Hockey Bloopers - The goalies seem to feel that taking a drink of water will wash away their shame.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Night Skies (2007)
This one is "based on real events," those being mysterious lights sighted above Pheonix and some guy's claim that he was "visited." Think of it as a poor man's "Fire In The Sky" mixed with a teenage slasher film. Needless to say I loved it. And hey, Sean Connery's son is in it so that makes it respectable, right? Right?
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Black Ivory - Hangin' Heavy (1979)
Ah, the tail end of the disco era. A time for some hopefuls to put out a full length album consisting of seven tracks of extended dance jams that are so generic they should be used in the Value Village Halloween commercials when they show the disco costume. I couldn't pass up the cover and the title, though. Black Ivory? The name itself is mind blowing. Hot cut to get tooted and fuck in the bathroom to: "Hustlin' (You Gotta Be Dancin')".
