Jerry Lewis

Maybe we should create a Jerry Lewis thread. The Day the Clown Cried came up on recently. Is there something in the air? It’s basically a link to a link to the same site to which I posted a link days ago.

While I’m on the subject, here are my top ten favorite Jerry Lewis films (solo–as in without Dean).

1. The Bellboy
2. The Ladies Man
3. The Nutty Professor
4. The King of Comedy
4. Cinderfella
5. Cracking Up
6. The Errand Boy
7. Rock-A-Bye Baby
8. The Delicate Delinquent
9. Arizona Dream
10. Which Way to the Front?

Yacht Rock

I hadn’t watched anything over at Channel 101 in a while, not since House of Cosbys. I read yesterday that Bill Cosby is still trying to sue over this, and so I wandered over to the 101 website to see what they were up to.

I strongly – HIGHLY – recommend that you folks check out the show Yacht Rock. There are seven episodes up – I’ve watched 2 so far – and it’s really good. Particularly for fans of 70s music – Bruns, Reynolds. In a way, this reminded me of the feel of Z Channel – the yellow tinges of film being shot in 1978 Marina Del Rey. It’s very funny, it’s original, and if it gets too popular people are going to sue faster than Bill Cosby. It’s the back-story of a particular California music genre: Smooth, ocean-going, yet fightin’ too. After all, anything which features John Oates saying, “You’re a fucking loser,” to Peter Cetera has got to be eorth ten minutes of your time.
