TAGTEAM

Holee Fuck! While doing my “research” on ABRAXAS the other day I stumbled upon a couple of things.

First was the high-larious site I-MOCKERY! Go ahead…click it…you know you have time to waste.

And the second…you know, I have to wonder sometimes, “Why am I always the last person find out about cool things like Tagteam?!”

How have I never heard of this? A buddy cop show starring my all time favorite wrestler, ROWDY RODDY PIPER

(here’s one of many reasons why Piper RULES!)

…and JESSE “THE BODY” VENTURA

…directed by television wizard, PAUL KRASNY…with music by JAY FERGUSONhow did this fail!?!?!?

For an indepth, scene by secne breakdown of this piece of lost AWESOMENESS head on over to I-MOCKERY!

So here’s what you want…some YouTubery!

Oooooh-Yeah! Hey, all this wrestling reminiscing reminds me about a LP I own!

THE WRESTLING ALBUM from 1985!

It has so many horrible songs on it…except for this one by THE HOT ROD himself:

…and REAL AMERICAN, duh.

Just for the record…I may hate sports, but I loooove me some wrestling!

Strong As I Am!

This morning I was doing some research on a possible MAN-UP MONDAYS candidate and I came across some sci-fi film I’ve never heard of…Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe!

“What’s it about?” I wondered the same thing and found a plot synopsis at the good ‘ol Wiki!

“The film revolves around the conflict of Abraxas (Jesse Ventura) and Secundus (Sven-Ole Thorsen), two intergalactic police officers, so-called Finders, of an alien race from a planet called Sargacia. Their race is physically similar to humans but with an incredible lifespan; Abraxas himself has been a Finder for at least nine thousand years. Each Finder is equipped with an Answer Box (a device similar to a Mother Box), which serves as a long-distance communicator and scanner, and can detect any object from a distance based on the object’s vibration. Furthermore, when running the test for the Anti-Life Equation, the subject of the scanning will discorporate if he/she does not contain the equation.”

Say what? Answer box? Anti-Life Equation? It leaves me wondering how many more people can rip off Jack Kirby? It also leaves me wondering if there are any scenes of this possibly “so good it’s bad” movie on YouTube?

The answer is, Yes.

So here’s a fan made trailer:

Oh, and this movie also used “Strong As I Am” by THE PRIME MOVERS…which you totally remember from Michael Mann’s MANHUNTER!

Well…that looks…uh…interesting? I wonder what happens next? Maybe some gratuitous slow motion face punching?

Yep….face punching.

Well…back to reality…gotta’ find that special man for tomorrow’s post.
