Better Move Your Butt When These Ladies Strut!

Ever hear of Darktown Strutters? No, not the whack-a-doodle band from Denton (although I do think they rule), but the 1975 Black-Babes-On-Wheels-Psychedelic-Freak-Out of a film!

I’ve read about this film on a few movie blogs like, Cinebeats, Surfin’ Dead, and The Horn Section…but since I’ve never had the pleasure of actually seeing it, I’ve had to swallow my jealousy and pour a six pack of beer on it just to make it through the day…

Well, jealousy, BE GONE!

Rev. Fred Phantom at Midnight Confessions has hepped me to some serious jive, Jack!

Get this! Over at Random Rumblings the incredibly white yet funky, Gotankgo posted all 1:23:40 of this out of print Blax-terpiece (see how I did that? I took the word “Blaxploitation” and the word “masterpiece” and put them together to…oh, forget it)!

What in the Hell are we waiting for? Let’s watch it now!

    Cool, I will check that out.

    Speaking of Blaxploitation, were you doing Pam Grier week here or at “Bride of…”?

    It was directed by one of my fave guys, the incredible William Whitney. He directed some really cool serials back in the heyday like SPY SMASHER and THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL. Not sure how he ended up doing STRUTTERS. Check out his credits, the dude worked. Lots of westerns. His serials are just a blast, real golden age comic book stuff.

    It’s about god damn time you posted something awesome that didn’t involve a dick, a chick with a dick, a dick growing out of a dick, a midget with a dick, dicks across the USA, Erik Estrada, oversized dicks, dick pillows, dicks with attitude (D.W.A.),some fucking horrible porn star named Charles Dick-ins etc….

    OK, now I miss the dicks.

    Is it Friday yet?

    @ Darius: Yeah, I think so…just photos, maybe a haiku or two…keepin’ it simple.

    @ Bwana: I noticed all that old timey shit he did…which explains the fast motion fight scenes, wacky sound effects and general goofiness in DTS.

    @ Steve: Imagine a night out with me? AWKWARD, to say the least.

    Remember that time you blogged about cleaning out the fridge at your job? Man, you really laid into your hipster co-workers.
    I think the dick thing is tied to the smoking/not smoking distraction.

  6. mrcanacorn Says:

    Oh, Darius, I meant to say the bulk of Pam goodness will be here and I’ll be keeping it simple on The Bride! Sorry I misread your question!

  7. mrcanacorn Says:

    @ Bwana, yeah I remember…what’s the joke? I’m sure you’re giving me the business, but I can’t figure out how.

    And you’re wrong about the smoking thing…I just love dicks.

  8. Darius Whiteplume Says:

    Well, you’d love it where I work.

    Oh, wait. I wasn’t being literal 🙂
