The Flintstones Theme Song

I like theme song’s for  TV show’s. They are  well written and very catchy. One of my fave’s is the song for The Flintstones.

I just like The Flintstone’s. Even the one with the silly alien that came to be their friend. The Great Gazoo  was his name… I think. He was always helping them out of trouble. Rather they wanted him to or not.

Anyways I was surfing the TV the other day and it happened to come on and I was checking out the theme song. I was following the the songs words.

Let’s ride with the family down the street.
thoo tha la da da la ca ta ta eet.

What? Uh I didn’t quite get that?

Throo tha la da da la ca ta ta eet.

It’s one of those song’s ya know?

I just can’t seem to make out the words. This has been an issue of mine my ENTIRE LIFE! Knowing a song well… But there is a lyric in it I just can’t make out…I’ll think about it for a minute. Then it goes away and I don’t think about it anymore.

Then I hear the song again!  I’m BACK.. What did he say?

Sure I could Google it. But what fun would that be?
(Heck) Couldn’t help myself. Wait, I found the original theme song.

QuikTrip – Convenience Store King!

Quittin Time Beer

Quiktrip is the king of convenience stores.  I talk to people all the time that are not from the OK area. When they discover QT they are simply amazed.

If you don’t have a Quiktrip in your town your missing out.

I have never seen a better convenience store for all of those goodies with almost no nutritional values.  WAIT tho… QT is different…They even have fruit and salad and health drinks. They now offer fresh made sandwiches. They just keep expanding and getting better and better… You dig?

Do I get that healthy stuff?
Hell no… It will take a doctor to tell me that there is very limited time if I don’t change my ways… But even that may not make me go into a health food frenzy. (I love to eat food that’s good) Lunch Time!

I remember back in the day QT used to have “Quittin Time Beer” There would be commercials on the TV with a dog named Lamar to help serve the ghetto sud’s.

I wonder if that brew was better than the “Beast”??? That would be “Milwaukee’s best” in party lingo… Or, I think that’s how it went… Maybe it was Meister Bro’… Hmmm?

Help a brother blogger out huh?

Hell, I don’t want no freakin’ beers anyways..  QuikTrip Rules tho 😀

Admiral Twin Drive In – Tulsa OK

Admiral Twin Drive-In

Sept 3,2010 was a sad day for Tulsa OK. The Admiral Twin Drive In burned completely to the ground. This Tulsa icon has been around since the 1950’s.

So now when I go rolling down I244 at night I will  no longer see a movie playing in the night. It’s just pitiful.

The Admiral Twin is full of history and was featured in “The Outsiders” by Francis Ford Coppola.  It’s been seen everywhere. That is a very popular movie.  Lord have mercy folks!

As I write this post the more I remember about that groovy place:

  • I partied there. (many times)
  • I snuck in there. (Trunk)
  • I saw the Exorcist there (first run)
  • 2nd time I ever kissed a girl was there. (she broke up right after lol)
  • My friends back yard was the movie. (Free movies)
  • On the school bus I remember seeing the film crew and vintage cars in place for the filming of “The Outsiders” (daily)

Anybody have similar memories… Thousands I’m sure.

Come on now!

Save the Admiral TwinJoin it hipsters.

Do Mormons Own Pepsi?

Can you dig some Pepsi? Well, you ever heard that the “Mormon’s” own Pepsi Cola? So… When you throwing back that red white and blue can your probably buying a bunch of bicycles. And those cat’s MUST get thirsty rolling from door to door.

Hey, the Mormons need you to drink up to spread the gospel (is it the gospel?) of Joseph smith. Well, isn’t he the one that came up with it? He probably LOVED  Pepsi.

I’m a Coke guy myself.

What can I say? That’s my mom’s fave. She always had it around when I was growing up.  She would scold me tho if she caught me in the kitchen sneakin’ a sip.  It’s OK … She usually had me plenty of bottles of kool-aide for me to drink when I was ridding arond on my Big Wheel.

I’m getting used to Pepsi now….The dudes at my job won’t buy any Coke for our vending box. So it’s all good…. Ride on.. You disciples of Mr Smith. Drop on by and let’s have a little spirtual banter… I LOVE it 🙂

We can share some ice cold Pepsi!

Sam Raimi – Drag Me to Hell

Drag me to hell?

Image via Wikipedia

I didn’t find Sam Raimi‘s “Drag Me to Hell” entertaining. It is an intelligently directed, edited and photographed horror flick with some canny moments, such as the weirdness at the dinner party. But those scary jolts can be clunky if not silly, and the writing is spotty, concerning as it does a young woman who is cursed by a Hungarian crone when the former declines to further extend the gypsy’s bank credit. “Lamia” time. As a Christian I believe in damnation, but I don’t believe in this film. It handles the subject of  “eternal burning” too lightly, too frivolously–and, needless to say, with bad theology. Also, horror movies with abysmally dark endings stick in my craw. They’re not fun. As if all this weren’t enough, Alison Lohman, though lovely, gives a superficial performance as the cursed gal.
