“High-speed, amphibious motors will whisk along the highways or skim across the waterways with equal ease. Your own car will do a smooth, safe 100 miles per hour on land - and fifty on the water. Sky-scrapers will rise from spacious lawns … when Health Authorities abolish over-crowding of buildings … Fantastic? Not at all! These things are being developed today by Men Who Plan Beyond Tomorrow.”
Seagram’s V.O. Canadian, 1943
Marty di Bergi: “If you could not play rock and roll, what would you do?”
David St. Hubbins: “I’d be a full-time dreamer.”
I grew up watching Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley and I bought my DVD copy of Spinal Tap before I owned a DVD player. I have laughed so hard for so many years at this man’s contributions to our culture, and as gaylordish as it sounds, today I was actually able to give something back to him. It was a tiny moment, but this here series of intertubes suddenly became a direct conduit to a lifelong idol in the most important of ways. My mind is blown all over again.
Never forget how much a one word response on something as oft-maligned as Twitter can power-up someone’s shit and have them smiling the rest of the day (week? month?).
OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS! DAVID ST. HUBBINS FOUND SOMETHING I SAID FUNNY!
GREATEST DAY OF MAH LIFE!!!!
Bobbi Flekman: You put a greased naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck, and a leash, and a man’s arm extended out up to here, holding onto the leash, and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it. You don’t find that offensive? You don’t find that sexist?
Ian Faith: Well, you should have seen the cover they wanted to do! It wasn’t a glove, believe me.
I must beg to differ! The above conversation (which continues with Nigel Tufnel saying: “What’s wrong with being sexy?”) is in reference to the album “Smell The Glove,” not the album pictured here, which is clearly a copy of “Bitch School” (and features what one assumes is a female dog leading a reluctant young scholar to some kind of canine-centric studies).
