And now for some god awful Scientology raps

And now for some god awful Scientology raps

It’s been quite some time – slightly over three years – since I wrote my letter to the lawyers of the church of scientology who so graciously graced my mother’s doorstep in Catonsville and handed her a letter identifying me as a person of interest for my involvement with the rogue internet terrorists known as Anonymous (memorieeees) and their attempts to terrorly terrorize the church’s neverending quest to bleed its members dry of their monetary … Read entire article »

Oh look, it’s Baltimore radio DJ Glenn Beck

Oh look, it’s Baltimore radio DJ Glenn Beck

So there I was, drunkenly surfing Youtube for some Mr. Ray’s Hair weave commercials when I stumble upon a gem of gems, a commercial for B 104 and their morning show, during which they’re *really excited* about giving away $10,000 to one lucky birthday winner! Recognize the guy in the middle sporting the Orioles jacket? Yes? No? Whatever, it’s Glenn Beck. Yes, that Glenn Beck. Mr. 9/12, restore America blah blah blahhhhhhhhhhh something conservative Glenn Beck. … Read entire article »

Divine and John Waters on Tom Snyder

Divine and John Waters on Tom Snyder

Here’s a fun little clip, Tom Snyder being generally confused at John Waters’ fascination with sleaze, and a bonus clip, the original trailer from Pink Flamingos as aired (when I first saw it at least) at the 25th anniversary screening(s) of the film at the Charles Theater – when it still had one screen. Enjoy! Old Tom’s progressive, but he generally draws the line where we kill people! I think John Waters has got his finger on … Read entire article »

City That Breeds Bumper Stickers and The Rat Fishing Video Post

City That Breeds Bumper Stickers and The Rat Fishing Video Post

After this interesting-to-me-only exchange witnessed yesterday on Facebook, I found myself remembering this slightly uncomfortable Youtube video filed under “Wait this is a thing?” shot in 1995, where a guy from DC interviews the Baltimore Association of Rat Fisherpersons, or B.A.R.F., as they hold their 3rd annual (and final) rat fishing tournament at Yellow Rose Saloon in Baltimore. The leader Chuck (that’s what I’d guess you’d call him) actually got a fair amount of text … Read entire article »

Watch Citizen Schaefer, it’s good

Watch Citizen Schaefer, it’s good

A lot of folks have been gushing over Esquire’s reprint of their 1984 profile on William Donald Schaefer, but over on Z on TV Mr. Zurawick draws attention to MPT’s 2009 feature “Citizen Schaefer,” a compelling look at the man’s career in Baltimore and the state of Maryland, chock full of interviews and archival footage of Baltimore (my fave: aerial shots of the harbor when the Allied Chrome factory was still standing). Not exactly sure … Read entire article »

Foglemanileaks: the video the liquor board DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE

Foglemanileaks: the video the liquor board DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE

Late last night, an anonymous tip came to us via Twitter revealing this shocking video of Stephan Fogleman, Baltimore City’s head of the Liquor Board. In it, the then future head of the liquor board details ways of dealing with stress, including underage drinking (probably) and Black Magic. Or, it could just be some college TV show from James Madison University in the 1980’s, I’m not some sort of videologist expert. (Seriously, watch some of the … Read entire article »
