50 States, 50 Songs

I decided to come up with a list of 50 songs, one for each state in the United States. I did not want to use state college songs, or official state songs, but songs with the state name in the title. Barring that, I also picked songs with the state or a city of that state in the song title or lyrics, or a band with the state name. If I still couldn’t think of a song, I picked a band from that state.

The Beatles Halloween Episode

I don't recall this cartoon show. If you think the voices don't sound correct, you are right. The voices of the Beatles cartoon characters were supplied by voice actors Lance Percival (Paul and Ringo), and Paul Frees (John and George). More information: www.beatlefans.com

Halloween on TV

What would any self respecting TV show not do? A Halloween special. But, then again…

The Monkees



Gilligan's Island

The spooky episodes, done up in funky colors to The Beatles song “Nowhere Man.”



Of course, some shows were all about Halloween…

The Addams Family Theme



The Munsters Theme

Haunted Houses

It’s October, and almost time for Halloween. Time to visit a haunted house. I like the haunted house rides myself.

Preshow Superstition

Superstition is a simulation ride. Here is the preshow for the ride, with Elvira.



Superstition

Some footage of the ride.



Haunted Castle

Haunted Castle is also a simulation ride. Here is the trailer for the ride.



Some of the footage of the ride.



Haunted Mansion

A ride through of The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland California in Anaheim.



Scooby Doo's Haunted Mansion Mystery Ride

This one looks like it is for the PC. Hearing the Scooby Doo song throughout the ride makes it less interesting.



High-Tech Haunted Houses

If you really want to get into the mood for Halloween, just go to one of your local haunted houses. Tracy Smith from CBS visited a modern-day haunted house for some old fashion fun.

Hogan's Heroes TV ad for Jell-O

Yesterday, we talked about Hogan's Heroes. It was a popular show, so of course they made commercials with the cast.

From: philosophiste. The cast of Hogan's Heroes (and Carol Channing) hawk Jell-O and Dream Whip in this TV commercial from the 1960s.

Hogan’s Heroes

I used to watch this show all the time as a kid. I still find it funny.

From wikipedia:

The show took place at Stalag 13, a POW camp located near the town of Hammelburg, run by the Luftwaffe for captured airmen. Although there was a real-life Stalag 13 near Hammelburg (formally known as Stalag XIII-C Hammelburg/Mainfranken), the one in Hogan's Heroes was entirely fictional.

The show's premise was that the POWs were actually active war participants, using the camp as a base of operations for Allied espionage and sabotage against the Nazis. The "prisoners" could leave and return almost at will via a secret network of tunnels and had radio contact with Allied command. They were aided by the incompetence of the camp commandant Colonel Klink and his aide Sergeant Schultz; Hogan would routinely manipulate the incompetent Klink and get Schultz to look the other way while his men conducted secret operations.


Here are some of the highlights from the show.

Carter imitating Hitler

From: chiraag87 "This is the scene in "Will the real Adolf please stand up", where Sgt Carter Imitates Hitler to fool Klink, Schultz, and even Burkhalter."



Rebuilding the German Aircraft Engine

From: numloxx. "Hogan and the boys steal a new silent aircraft engine, and are in the process of rebuilding it when they have some parts left over."



Clips From Krzysiobeatles2





To The Gestapo With Love

From: puppyluvr2828. "A shorter version of the episode from Hogan's Heroes. I had to cut a lot out because when I finally finished it, it was way over 10 minutes long, so I had to shorten it. Hope you enjoy it!"

www.youtube.com

Carter's Rabbit Trap

From: puppyluvr2828. This is little bits from one of the episodes called "Klink Vs. The Gonculator." Hogan and everyone else are asked to get an underground agent out of germany and escape to England. Hogan can't figure out a way to do that until he sees Carter's Rabbit Trap. The plan works out just fine! Hope you enjoy! Sorry the quality is bad. I tried."

L'engrenage

This is a cute film.

From: lengrenagelefilm.
How can you possibly live when every hour the mechanism of the clock starts and takes you from your place? But when a little cuckoo finds love, he's determined to live his life happily everafter. Or not? A short animated movie by students of the Sup'infograph. For more information: www.myspace.com/lengrenage_lefilm

Interactive LED Coffee Table

The folks at Evil Mad Scientist have done it again. They have built a cool coffee table. It is not as useful as Microsoft Surface, but it is probably cheaper.
