I'll say!

Diva - last week's issue of Sports' Illustrated (with Lebron on the cover) has a story and pics about the triathalon you and Mr. Diva were watching last week.

I subscribe but it's gone. Rite Aid has a large magazine rack; probably there or Drug Mart.

Written by Smokey Robinson w/backup vocalist The Temptations per one commenter.

OP and team: My niece got married yesterday evening and If You Think I'm Sexy was one of the handsome couples' selections. Prior to the ceremony, the "tune" played was a Celtic piece. Very cool. (I'll have to ask her what it was). After the ceremony, they played Happy. We couldn't stay for the final segment of the evening - Dance and Music - though I imagine some more mod selections were in play.

Great job Monclova Steve! I'm back after being on the road for the last three weeks (Oklahoma, NE Ohio and Chicago), but I knew there would be something good and of interest on the AARP Thread when I returned. Mary Wells, who died at the young age of 49, also two other big hits with "My Guy" and "Two Lovers".

While on the road, I heard an old country favorite, "Gotta Travel On". I did a little research and could not believe just how many renditions there are of this tune. Here are a few of the folks that performed the song: Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys, Billy Grammer, Bob Dylan, The Kingstown Trio, Timi Yuro, Glen Campbell, Chet Adkings, The Springfields, The Weavers, Bobby Bare, Trini Lopez, Harry Belafonte, Boots Randolph and many others:



Also, I heard a song that I really like that I hadn't heard in a while. Now I hope the "youngsters" on this thread aren't too critical, but the song is "Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine'. It was written and performed by arguably one of the best "story telling singers" of all-time, Tom T. Hall:



The regular season for high school is winding down, but the playoffs will begin soon. As for college football, well, two things are pretty obvious: (1) everyone's chasing Alabama and (2) Ohio State is "toast".

ROCK ON!

Nice touches all.

Urb looks like toast. Something wrong with the team's psychology and maybe the coach.

I hadn't heard "Gotta Travel On" for many, many years. When I was a young tyke (elementary school/jr. high) it seemed like this song was everywhere on the TV or radio (transistor, of course), performed by it seemed like every famous artist there was -- both pop and country.
Thanks, OWK, for bringing back this jewel and taking me back to those so much younger and innocent days.
Welcome back, my friend.

Wow! The Buckeyes dropped to #11 in the AP Poll and #9 in the Coaches/USA Today Poll:
http://www.espn.com/college-football/rankings

It's tough to blame Urban Meyer since he has a 77-9 record at Ohio State and a National Championship, but the Bucks just don't seem to have any balance on offense and their defense has given up lots of big plays. After throwing 73 passes vs. Purdue, Woody Hayes is probably rolling over in his grave. Hopefully, OSU can get things back in order and maintain their winning streak vs. Michigan.

ROCK ON!

October 22

EVENTS

1962: Cuban Missile Crisis begins: US President John F. Kennedy, after internal counsel
from Dwight D. Eisenhower, announces that American reconnaissance planes have discovered
Soviet nuclear weapons in Cuba, and that he has ordered a naval "quarantine" of the
Communist nation.

The crisis ends 10/27 with aide of John Scali (Canton McKinley alum) an ABC reporter who
helped set up communications thru a 'back-door" with the Soviet KGB station chief in
Washington. There is a briefing where Bobby Kennedy tells Scali that all this is on the Hush-Hush;
"Sorry John, no Pulitzer." (Do you think a reporter today could keep his trap shut?)

There are several media sources about the crisis...

Thirteen Days, Robert F. Kennedy's account of the crisis, released in 1969;
It became the basis for numerous films and documentaries.

The Missiles of October, 1974 TV docudrama about the crisis

Thirteen Days (film), 2000 docudrama directed by Roger Donaldson about the crisis

Lots of stuff in the hopper from the pupper.

Excuse me while I whip this out. Lot of good character actors in that scene and in the movie - I especially like the big guy; was in a lot of things. Can't you see that, that man is a ni... .
When Mel Brooks used such outrageous and outlandish dialogue he was saying a lot about the stupidity of racism.

Saw Bruce S. in '82 at the Coliseum in Richfield and he blew the place up with his rendition of I Fought The Law. Wasn't Bobby Fuller murdered? Fem fatale?

I thought Annette was a hot tomato. I am reading a bio. on Robin Williams. It mentions several times that frequent Beach Blanket character Harvey Lembeck ran a very prestigious actors' troupe in L.A. and many actors studied there and that he in was in Stalag 17. Who knew!?

I believe Curly Howard had the most unfortunate life of all of the Stooges. I was not a huge fan - good to have on during a rain delay - I was totally on board with Stan and Ollie (good friends their entire lives) and to a lesser extent, Bud and Lou. (Both of them had rather tragic lives, also.)

Doesn't Christopher Lloyd produce or direct Modern Family a lot? He was in Cuckoo's Nest also and in fact is the last character seen.

I read a story about Joan Fontaine last year in Vanity Fair and she was still alive.

I was in the sixth grade at the time of the Cuban Missle crisis. Very scary! My sixth grade teacher had a huge portable blue radio and played the news of the event(s) for us. He also would play it when the U.S. was sending someone into space.

Gotta agreed with Diva's hubby. Catherine Deneuve was once considered the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" by some media outlets. Even if she wasn't #1, she was arguably among the top models of all time.

On another subject, Woody Hayes once said, "There's nothing that cleanses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you." If this is true, the Buckeyes should be fully cleansed. Many are claiming there are big-time problems in Columbus:

Wayne Woodrow Hayes. Everyone knows these I believe:

JB can help here... .

Hayes always ate at the Kon Tiki (sp.)

He kept his phone number in the book. Stan Laurel did the same thing. ( I am amazed that I could have called up either.)

Hayes did not like his players to be married. I can't quote him here - pretty raw. Something about not being able to perform on Sat. if... .

Those of us who are Buckeye fans recall the days when games were not on. At that point WOSU would give you a 60-minute high light reel at midnight.

That evolved into the Woody Hayes Show on Channel 10 at 11:30. These shows were a treat in the early 70's what with the afros, attitudes, etc.

Bo Schembeckler always called Woody "The Old Man".

An exasperated Woody would only reply, "Oh that Bo!"

Woody dotting the "i".

Nixon speaking at Woody's funeral.

Of his time.

Bevo, did you mean the Jai Lai restaurant? That's where he'd have his weekly press conference. Or you might have tried to work the old Kahiki restaurant into that title. Both landmark spots with great histories, but I'm not sure about a WW connection to the Kahiki.

Zunardo,


You're correct on both counts of the Columbus landmark restaurants from the past. I've got some matchbooks from the Jai Lai dated 1982 when they were celebrating their 50th Anniversary. Woody always took his recruits there for dinner. Also have a water tumbler from there I "accidentally" walked out with one evening. It was located at 1421 Olentangy River Road to be specific.


The Kahiki was billed as " The World's Most Beautiful Polynesian Supper Club" once again complements of a matchbook . It really was a fantastic restaurant and a destination restaurant for people all over the Midwest back in the day and, yes I have two of those brown tiki glasses they used to serve those "mystery drinks" in. Those were complementary however. When someone ordered one, a girl in a sarong would serve it after hitting a giant gong that was deafening loud. You remember " Bang A Get A Gong Get It On",I'm sure lol. The Kahiki was an ultra cool building with giant torches out front and that location was 3583 East Broad Street.


While looking at those two matchbooks also found one for the "Water Works"Restaurant downtown at 225 N. Front St. and even one from the infamous "Looking Kool" out on 5960 West Broad Street billed as a "Gentleman's Theatre Restaurant" and at Rt 40&Rt42 at the point in London. Can't imagine how I ever ended up with that one, probably a story somewhere in there involving a bachelor party or something back in the 70's.



That Saturday night at 11:30 pm Woody Hayes Show was something I never missed. It was live and anything could happen. I remember Woody would ask the player a question and then answer it for the guy. I still remember the night that Nick Buonamici came on the show wearing a single earring, a loop kind of like a pirate might wear and the look on Woody's face was priceless. This was at a time when it was very rare to see a male wearing an earring. Nick B. was a free spirit for sure and I know that Woody had thrown him off the team at least twice, but always ended up bringing him back.

Woody asked a running back one night how he scored on a particular play and the player started to describe the play by number and his assignment and the blocking scheme etc and Woody just went nuts and started yelling "No No No, you don't know who might be listening and we don't want to give away any of our plays". Can't recall who the player was but it was back in the Jeff Logan era or maybe earlier. I just wonder how many opposing Big 10 coaches would have been watching the Woody Hayes Show on Columbus channel 10 at 11:30 pm Saturday night and this was before cable TV and the internet even.


Good memories stirred by Bevo.

JB

Ate at the Jai Lai a few times...a great place in its hey day.

Never experienced the Kahiki, though.

ohiopup...you ought to draw a paycheck for your nearly daily searches and finds of the outstanding trivia (?) and information you present. Thanks for the deep dives and keep up your good work. It obviously takes up a good bit of your time; for that we are appreciative.

Bobby Knight....reminds me of the rather lame joke I heard sometime this past year:

"Hey, didya hear Bobby Knight's a furniture salesman now? Buy a couch off him, and he'll throw in a chair for free...!!

We must all be "nesting" a bit as the site has heated up!

Here are my blabbermouth reflections on this plethora of topics.

I was not familiar with the song Gotta Travel On.

Never ate at the aforementioned Columbus spots but I always heard that Woody did.

Saw a very funny out take one night on Happy Days where Henry Winkler and Marion Ross started "making out" behind Ron Howard's back. Hilarious.

Bob Knight reminds me of someone else who is very famous now. Saving grace - his life long proclamations about Fred Taylor and Jerry Lucas being the best coach and player in the history of college ball.

Nancy Cartwright - when our kids were little - 15-20 years ago - we loved Sunday night tv: The Simpsons, Malcolm in The Middle and The X-Files. I believe the Simpsons are in their 30th year. I know many hate it - we loved it! I still will catch a new episode every once in a while.

Leo G. Carroll - another one of those shows in the 50's that reminds me strongly of being a child. I loved the show Topper. Cosgrove. Mariam. George? The St. Bernard?

I recognize Whit Bissell as being an actor who worked a lot.

Under two degrees of separation I thought Tony Franciosa dated Tina Sinatra. Wrong - Tommy Sands did. Got me to thinking about Nancy S. in the way that males do. She is 78. I recall her posing for Playboy when she was around 55!! Then that got me thinking about Some Velvet Morning, the psychedelic-cowboy song she did with Lee Hazelwood.
For all but Diva, you boys need to look up what Hazelwood told her to think about when she was getting ready to sing his song, These Boots Were Made For Walking. Naughty!

Gordy (Porky) Lee. Loved the Rascals! While most of them seemed to die relatively young, Hal Roach who owned the studio and I believe produced or directed the Rascals' shorts lived to almost 100.
Who was Petey?
Favorite episodes - really all of them. Loved it when they would build a fire truck or car and then go flying off on it. Liked watching Alfalfa vie for Darla's heart - usually against Butch. Liked Miss. Crabtree. Really - loved them all. I recall George McFarland (Spanky) on talk shows (same with Hal Roach).

John Matuzak - steroids?

Forest Tucker and Larry Storch on F Troop. Sort of the old west version of Gilligan and the Skipper.

In my early readings of Rolling Stone Magazine, Bill Graham was like the Wizard with his Philmore East and West. Saw a movie - that JB probably owns - about him once screaming and yelling at everyone. Looked like Mort Saul.

Roger Miller - I'm a man of means by no means...King Of The Road. Very popular back in the day.

Vincent Price - For my money (no pun intended) House on Haunted Hill, Willam Castle's cheapo horror flick from around 1959, is still a scary movie to me. Vincent Price was delicious. A gourmet and art afficiando. Pretty funny, too.

Richard Harris - proud to say that the Man Called Horse has graced our quizzes a few times. (Whose cake was that? Somehow, I feel it was mine! ) Another good song for watching the submarine races.

JB again - there was a movie in the early 80's about stuntmen that I believe Needham directed that was pretty good?

Loved Marcy Strassman on Kotter but she was usually seen for around 30 seconds and seemed to always be saying, "Gabe".

Bevo,



Just a couple of comments . . . .

1. Drawing a blank on the Bill Graham movie scene, but I do agree Bill Graham did resemble Mort Sahl, I also thought he reminded me of Gene Simmons from Kiss.

2. Vincent Price - a classic actor in some of those Hammer Films from late 50's and early 60's many based on Edgar Allen Poe stories. In particular, I remember the original " House On Haunted Hill" film vividly from my early teen years. Usually myself and two or three of my best friends would go to the movies on a Friday or Saturday night in Newark at the Auditorium Theatre on the East side of the square in Newark. The Midland Theatre across the street on the North side of the square was the grand old theatre in Newark and is still standing today. It's been restored and is a magnificent theatre with balcony, carpet, chandelier etc. and that's where all of the top rated films played while the Auditorium Theatre featured the second rate horror films, westerns, B/W features and the Auditorium is where my friends would flock to the movies. Cost for popcorn and snacks was also cheaper. The Midland was reserved for date movies later on as I worked up the courage to begin the dating scene.

Anyway, I recall the film "House On Haunted Hill" as being pretty scary at the time but also for a very unique feature I had never seen before or since and that was a skeleton that was rigged to a pulley system and at a very frightening scene near the climax the skeleton on a wire hanging over the theatre was released and the skeleton came flying out of the dark over the audience on the invisible wire cable as the audience screamed out in fright ! I think one of my buddies may have even hurled a half eaten box of milk duds at the skeleton on its' return trip across the theatre.

3. The Hal Needham movie about stuntmen was called "Hooper" and Burt Reynolds and Sally Field starred in it riding on their success together a year earlier in "Smokey & The Bandit" and a year before they returned again in " Smokey & The Bandit 2". Needham was a natural to direct "Hooper" having been a well known stuntman.

I believe the Graham movie was about San Francisco music and Bill being a major player was in it at length.

I liked Mort Saul - even though I didn't understand 75% of what he was talking about. I had a book of his once and it got into the Kennedy Assasination. Had a guy riding a horse on the dust jacket, I believe.

I would have enjoyed all of that late 50's, early 60's San Fran. comedian and club scenes. Lenny B., The Smothers, etc. I could dig it!

You being a few years older than I were probably mature enough to not let scary movies freak you out. Unfortunately, I wasn't. I had terrible nightmares, walked in my sleep and probably had something approaching night terrors.

Smaller town here, but we had our Star Theater. I was an avid movie goer and that was with my parents' blessing. I would guess that I saw 2 - 3 movies a week. The run sequence was always Thurs. - Sat., Sun. - Tues. and then Wed. was Bank Night. Not unusual for me to go four times in any one week. The sequence would change for block busters and run from Thurs. - Tues.. That happened with the Ten Commandments. The Shaggy Dog, West Side Story and of course, That Touch of Mink starring our girl, Connie Curtis (aka - Doris Day).

Anyway, William Castles movies were so over the top. We did not have the skeleton fly through the crowd for H on H H but during The Tingler., the seats were wired to give off a slight vibration. Also, if you recall , the promo for the movie had Castle offering an insurance policy that would pay $10,000 for death caused by fright! The scariest part for me and my 28 year old daughter was a quick jump scare of the little old lady with the messy hair standing right behind someone. Then she glided out of the scene, as if she was on a rolling stand (she was).

That kind of "breaking the fourth wall stuff" (or whatever it is called) always blew me away. (Castle talking to the crowd.)

We had a drive in (The Indian Trail) outside of town that I went to one night with an older sister, her brother and his cousin. The movie was The Incredible Shrinking Man. A fairly existential undertaking for me at seven!!

We parked very far from the rest room/concession area. I was too scared to go to the rest room and after fighting it for probably well over an hour, I peed myself and flooded the back seat of this teenage girl's car.

Milk Dude, Guess What's, Dots, Necos. It cost me a quarter to get in until I was 12. So, when I was young my dad gave me a one dollar bill. I bought a dime cup of pop, a dime bag of corn, a Sugar Daddy and still had 50 cents left for more corn and pop!!

The Star, which is now used for an occasional kids' movie or small town stage production, closed originally in the early 70's. Some of the last movies I saw there included American Graffiti, Klute, and Paper Lion.

It was a great place for kids and a lot of adults went. I saw classic make out sessions and fist fights while there and that was in the crowd.

My dad would take me up and usually we picked up a few friends on the way. When the evening was over, I would go into a small office and call him to pick us up. Then we would stand out front of the theater and wait. I lack the vocabulary to describe how much fun that all was. Usually, when we got home it was right before ten and time for The Twilight Zone. One of the few shows my dad watched and I would lie on the couch with my feet tucked in behind him. Nice.

Just saw where we lost another rocker from yesterday. "Swamp Rock" legend Tony Joe White passed away at 75 of a heart attack. Two of the most popular songs he wrote were “Polk Salad Annie” and "A Rainy Night in Georgia" (Brook Benton's rendition was big hit).

Here's a video of Tony Joe White singing “Polk Salad Annie” in 1970:



RIP Tony Joe White!

ROCK ON!

RIP - Tony Joe White. I saw him sing Polk Salad on the Smothers' Brothers. I don't know if a better rendition of Rainy Night in Georgia could be done other than the one by Brook Benton. Sad and very romantic.

OWK - I may have missed you mentioning it but Tex Winter recently passed also. RIP - Tex.

No Bevo, you didn't miss anything about Tex Winter that I might have posted. I purposely didn't post anything on this thread since I figured he might not be relevant to some of our current AARPsters. Although Tex was a legendary figure who help change the game of basketball, at least on the offensive end, he was 96 and hadn't been active in hoops for many years. There is no question that his "Triangle Offense", and its usage by Phil Jackson, helped both the Bulls and the Lakers win multiple NBA titles. Tex was one of the great minds in basketball.

ROCK ON!

And he had a great name. Just watched a little video about him. I just have that thing for the old guys on cold mornings in CYO leagues driving the team in a broken down station wagon. Sound of Converse All-Stars.

I stopped for a listen to La La Means I Love You by The Delphonics while checking out Rainy Night In Georgia. Music in general was much better then.

Guess What's - I don't remember this. Probably before my time.

Don't feel bad Bevo, Pee Pee Raymond lost it on the ball field!

Great line: I lack the vocabulary to describe how much fun that all was.

Petey was The Litlte Rascals' dog. His real name was Pal the Wonder Dog. The naturally occurring, almost complete circle around his right eye was completed all of the way by the make up folks for the circle effect everyone knows about. Petey did have an almost complete circle around his right eye. The original Petey died in 1930 and was replaced by his son.

Warning _ do not blow what ever you are drinking out your nose!

====

My cousin's boyfriend is in the hospital and she was attending to him.

The doctors don't think he's going to make it.

He is in really bad shape, can barely talk.

He wanted to confess to her before he left this world.

So she leaned over close to him...

"Milly, I'm so sorry, before I go I want tell you that I had
sex with your sister Sandy, and your Aunt Judy, also your
best friend Midge."

Milly leans over and and whispers in his ear...

"It's O.K. - I know, that's why I poisoned you,
now, just lay back and close your eyes."

The make-up guy was Max Factor, and Petey was a Pit-Bull.
