The Penismobile from 200 Motels

by on Dec.21, 2007, under Documentary, Original Artists

This is a deleted scene from the Frank Zappa film 200 Motels. It takes place on the streets of Centerville, while Howie is trying to get a groupie (played by Mark Volman) back to his cheesy motel room to the tune of Do You Like My New Car. This scene contains the only footage of the first trial run of Cal Schenkel’s PENIS MOBILE. For some odd reason this scene never made it into the final version of the film. This clip comes from the out of print documentary The True Story of 200 Motels. Highly recommended, if you can find it.

by on Dec.18, 2007, under Original Artists

This is the song that catapulted the career of twin brothers Art & Artie Barnes, aka: Barnes & Barnes, aka: Robert Haimer and Bill Mumy, into the stratosphere where they enjoyed eternal fame and fortune…or at least achieved the coveted ‘most requested song in history’ status on Dr. Demento show.
The duo went on to record twelve more albums (four of them best-of) for the Rhino label, eventually producing two albums for the legendary performer Wild Man Fischer (Pronounced Normal, Nothing Scary), as well as the stunning musical debut of Crispin Glover entitled, The Big Problem Does Not Equal the Solution, The Solution Equals Let It Be.

This video also boast a young Bill Paxton in the leading role. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

Leonard Nimoy – The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

by on Dec.07, 2007, under Original Bands

The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” (aka 2 minutes and 18 seconds of horror) is a song composed by Charles Randolph Grean and performed by Leonard Nimoy, telling the story of Bilbo Baggins and his adventures in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel The Hobbit. The recording originally appeared on The Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy, the second of Nimoy’s incredible albums on Dot Records.

A year before the recording was commercially released, Nimoy lip-synched to the recording during a guest appearance on the July 28, 1967 episode of Malibu U, a short-lived variety television series. This gave birth to the wondrous piece of history we present here today. If only Nimoy had made more music videos to go along with his music, its a real shame we can’t see more productions of this quality. Its a real mystery why this song wasn’t used in Peter Jacksons 3,000 hour epic, Lord of the Rings.

We’ve cleaned up the audio a bit to further your enjoyment.

Unfortunately this video was edited for some unknown reason, to see the entire clip in black and white this follow this link:
