Mix Tape #15 - TV Party

I've been watching way too much TV. This can mostly be blamed on RTN. I think they're having financial difficulties, so the channel could be yanked any day now. And, for my sake, I hope it is.

The thing I, sadly, look forward to every week is Kraft Suspense Theater. It's a series of hour-long dramas from the 60's where, say, Robert Logia will try to con a schoolteacher out of her money and she'll end up stealing his heart. IT'S. AMAZING.

Here. Watch some.

Oh. And I know firsthand that the people selling those online taped them off a black and white tv set. Which is actually fortunate, because they include the original ads and I think some of those Kraft recipes would induce spontaneous vomitting if they were in color.

While I haven't been very discriminate in my TV choices, I'm done with Ironside. He's a pushy dick and I wish he'd fall off an escalator.

Whoa. I totally just made that happen.

Oh. Anyway. Music. A lot of this was lifted from this now-defunct blog. God bless its still digital heart.

And I know I use that Scrawl song way too much, but it's apt here.

And even though this is mostly TV-themed, there's stuff in there that has nothing to do with TV. Confusing!
