Toys from My Childhood-The Bionic Woman Dome House

This is a toy from my childhood.  Here is the Bionic Woman Dome House. I had a Jamie Sommers doll.  Now I wish I had this house.

I’m not sure what I love more, the fact that this doll house looks like some groovy 1970s  pad teeming with all sorts of swinging singles in polyester having wild parties with lots of cocaine and wild sex, the rampant sexism (Instead of waiting for the details of her next mission, the Bionic Woman is getting all pretty and waiting for her “man” to show up), or the angelic choir singing “Jaaaaaaaaaaaaamie Sommers” in the background.

As Bad as This Is…

As bad as this skit is, it’s still better than the Star Wars Holiday Special.

 

Toys from My Childhood-Milky The Marvelous Milking Cow

This is a toy from my childhood, although I did not own this.  I remember this commercial quite vividly.  Please to enjoy “Milky The Marvelous Milking Cow”.

Wow.  Just wow.  I wonder what kind of gross artificial chemicals were in those milk pellets?  That pretend milk looks just absolutely nasty!

This toy was not geared towards farm kids.  All the farm kids I knew thought this was pretty stupid.

Commercials They Wouldn’t Dare Make Today

Here’s a commercial for a toy from my childhood that they would not dare to make today.

I present to you Rub a Dub Dolly.

I think it speaks for itself.

Obscure Music Video of the Week 10/28/2010

After a few weeks’ hiatus (because I was on vacation and I couldn’t find any obscure songs), Obscure Music Video of the Week is back.

This week’s video is for the song What About Me? by the band Moving Pictures

This is one of those songs I remember because it was played on the radio at the time when I discovered and really got into popular music.  Starting when I was in the 7th grade, Sunday nights were spent glued to my radio, listening to America’s Top 40 with Casey Kasem.   I would listen to the music, write whatever was on my mind, and imagine.   Music has been my salvation during some of the rougher times of my life and this song reminds me of the time when I discovered the joys of music.
