Move over, Mad Men! It’s a trip back to the vintage vaults to meet the retro secretaries, administrative assistants, and other working women as the pulp paperbacks saw them — cheap, easy, politically incorrect, but definitely pulptastic!
Yes, we’re talking two scary bad monster movies from the Very Vile Vintage Film Vault.
It’s …. COMBAT JUGGLING! Because, well, why not?!?
Yes, it’s very peculiar entertainer Tiny Tim wowing the kids with the ever-so-cheery “The Other Side.” The world is drowning, the kids are freaking, it’s ’60s performance art at its most bizarre!
Apparently, in the future, you’ll be swilling malt liquor in outer space. Served by your friendly jive-bot, natch … This, according to the ad agency that came up with this commercial for Schlitz malt liquor back in 1979 …
It’s nightmare time with these retro photographs of some extremely creepy clowns …
… because isn’t this the kind of thing that makes the internet great?
It’s Serge Gainsbourg singing Chez Les Ye Ye … but the real star of this vintage video is the dancer on the left. Tres hoot! Yeah, baby!
from the German 60s tv series Raumpatrouille Orion (which only lasted from September to December 1966), a prediction of future dancing … which apparently consists of a lot of standing and chicken moves …

A balloon-filled dance number — Super Hit Party Song —from Loafer (1973), a crime thriller-musical (of course!) film from India. Hooray for Bollywood!
How do you keep a city clean? By having the pigeons poop soap, of course!, An actual experiment by a London-based company from the Exceptionally Stupid Science Breakthrough Section, Special Pigeon Poop Bureau.
A major “uh oh, did I just say what I think I said” moment from Fox 5 DC’s coverage of the inauguration.
A very bizarre but very entertaining ad from Japan (Where else?)
The title says it all. German Army Music Corps (in helmets, natch) rock out.
Wow. That sums it up. We’re talking Italian disco balletic horror. With sparkles. And spangly cod pieces.
So there’s this girl. In a bikini. Sitting in a tree. And she helpfully shares safety tips with three guys. It’s very surreal, very strange, and a truly weird example of the creative minds at the U.S. government putting taxpayer dollars to work.
Straight from the 1964 World’s Fair in New York … it’s an excerpt from DuPont’s “Wonderful World of Chemistry” show. And “wonderful” is definitely one word for it. “Strange” would be better, though …
Direct from Las Vegas and the Miss Universe pageant of the other night, we present Miss Venezuela, Irene Sofia Esser Quintero, cogently answering the question: “If you could make a new law, what would it be and explain why.” Prepare to be edified…
