IseeRobots Television: KFTY TV 50 News With Ed Beebout 12 Mins W/Commercials!


Man! I was geeked when I found this. KFTY was our local Santa Rosa channel and one of the few that I could pick up on my bedroom TV hence I watched A LOT of TV 50.

One of the highlights of the channel was the evening news with Ed Beebout. He's a local legend. I mean that. The dude was the coolest and not in an ironic way. The dude was a LEGEND! 

The News was really great because they would cover things around town and at the time SR had that small town feel. It was almost like just about everyone in SR appeared on TV 50 News at some point in time. 

I was on there in the background a few times and once they aired a speech I gave at a High School Peace Rally... ya, I like peace. Don't make fun.

Anyhow, this is a neat slice of time that really brings me back to being in my bedroom over on Windsor Court watching Black and White TV all Summer cuz I really didn't have much else to do...

The IseeRobots Show Ep.2: Second To None




This time around on The IseeRobots Show we start off with a fun little phone call from my homie from inside Johnny Jail a dude that goes by the name of Tommy Salami.

Tommy is from New Jersey and you might recognize him as the dude who was slurping soup in the early Johnny Court bit we played on the show. He's a good guy.

Then we head to At The Movies where we take a look at Midsommar the first great horror flick of the Summer of 2019 and then we do a lightning round of the movies I saw since last we spoke, everything from Toy Story 4 to Shaft..

For the main event of the show we take a look at an online game I play called The Hollywood Stock Exchange. You can find it HERE!!! It's a ton of fun even if this segment isn't lol..

In the final segment we do some Summer Of Fitness, open a Karate Kid Action Figure Set that I got and talk on a whole bunch of other fun thing... It's a real hoot.

Mego Fighting Championship: Action Jackson Vs. Elvis Presley Plus Undercard Action



This week on The Mego Fighting Championship we have a battle between returning veteran Action Jackson (0-1) and a debuting fighter, Karate Black-Belt and legend of the music industry, Elvis Presley.. 

Action Jackson has been seen training with Jiu-Jitsu Champion Royce Gracie in the rainforests of Brazil recently and he hopes that his improved ground game will be enough to pull him past Elvis' Karate expertise... 



Presley starts off the fight by leaping forward with a front kick but Jackson is on guard and grabs his leg and uses it to pull The King to the mat where he hopes to use some of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu that he's been working so hard on. 



After tossing The King to the ground Jackson grabs on to Elvis' legs and attempts to sweep them aside in hopes of passing his guard and moving into the side mount or even the full mount if possible.. If you look closely you can see that Elvis has his body weight shifted to one side in case he sees the opportunity to squirt out the side and escape. 



Before Elvis can move Jackson is all over him with an attempted elbow strike. Elvis seems to be ready to shift his weight and escape if he sees the chance.  In the meantime Jackson is laying in some heavy shots to Presley's face.

Jackson needs to watch out though. Elvis has moved his right arm down between AJ's legs and may be preparing an escape in the meantime Jackson continues to rain down elbows.. 



Right when it seems like the fight might be over due to the heavy strikes to Elvis' head The Tiger reaches under Action Jackson and completely reverses position.  



Presley continues rolling through until he his behind AJ and locks his right arm around Jackson's jaw and starts a choke of his own. It may be that Elvis is more of an adapt ground fighter than we had thought. Has AJ's training been in vain? 



Elvis continues through until Jackson is face first on the ground and Elvis is behind him using a Bulldog Choke from Catch Wrestling to put Jackson out. It looks like he may be done. His arm is starting to go limp when Elvis suddenly lets go and jumps up off of him.....



and drops a ruthless knee to the back of his unconcious foes head! How disgraceful. I expected more from The King but in the world of Mego Vale-Tudo anything goes.... 

Looks like an impressive debut for Elvis and back to the drawing board for the 0-2 Action Jackson.. 



In undercard action Andre The Giant (2-1) made short work of Norm Peterson by simply picking him up and flipping him upside down and dropping him head first onto the ground. 

Norm was knocked out instantly and taken away via helicopter to an area hospital. We wish him the best.. 

See you next time from The Mego Fighting Championship Arena!

Original Baseball Card Video Company Presents An Introduction To Basebal...


Back in the day my brother and I were crazy into Baseball Cards.. like CRAZY into cards. I actually dedicated an entire episode of This Boring Life to the topic.. You can check it out HERE!!! Anyway, we were so into it that we'd take any opportunity to learn more about cards or to even just hear someone talk about cards.. What I'm getting at is that we rented this VHS and many others like it from our local video store. We were such nerds.

Anyhow, I was at The Dig the other week and I couldn't believe it when I came across a copy of the actual tape that we used to watch! How fun is that? I mean totally fun right? If you like baseball card related VHS Tapes I guess.. anyhow, I ripped it to Youtube for the whole world to see.. There are some major tracking issues but they sort of give it an extra VHS feel to it.. Enjoy..

Mego Introduces Elastic Superheroes Comic Book Scan!


How wacky. Man, it looks like Bane really did a number on Batman this time around. He is literally tied in knots. Maybe he is just chilling though. Like yoga style or something. If you look at his face he does look pretty relaxed. I bet it's yoga. I mean a dude has to keep his flexibility right? 

I've never not ever seen one of these in person but I imagine that they are kind of like a Stretch Armstrong type deal. Here is a link to some info on The Mego Museum (Invaluable resource). If you hop on over there you can see that they are basically like Stretch but they look like Supes and Bats.. 

Holy guacamole! If you go to Ebay and check some prices these guys out they are crazy expensive.. Click here to see some recent solds.. At the time that I first posted this scan there was one that sold for like 9oo bucks.. well, someone made them an offer and they took it but they were asking 985 bucks! That's wild.

The comic that I scanned this from was a 1979 issue of The Unknown Soldier by DC.. I love me a 70's DC War Comic...

IseeRobots Television: KPIX CBS Bay Area 1994 Winter Olympics Commercials.


This is the one with Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan. On this 1st part you see a bit of Harding skating. It's brief. I wasn't sure how much I could get away with on Youtube.. 

There are a few interesting commercials here. The Olympics kind of pull out some big advertisers like Coke and Mcdonald's an stuff. I really like the one for Northern Exposure. I really love that show and wished it played in syndication around here. BITD they used to play it late night on CBS after all the talks shows. That's what really got me hooked on NE. It's totally one of my favorite shows that there has ever been.. 

I also like the KPIX News bumper around the 13 minute mark.
