My Girl’s Pussy – Robert Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders…

01) My Girl’s Pussy – Robert Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders


“Please visit Robert Crumb here: http://www.crumbproducts.com/

R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders are an American retro string band playing songs from, and in the style of, the 1920s: old-time music, ragtime, “evergreen” jazz standards, western swing, country blues, hokum, vaudeville and medicine show tunes. Their three 33? rpm albums, all recorded in the 1970s on the Blue Goose label, were titled R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders (1974), R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders No.2 (1976), and R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders No.3 (1978); the latter two have been reissued on the Shanachie label as Chasin’ Rainbows and Singing In the Bathtub respectively. As a novelty, they issued a number of 78 rpm 10-inch singles for Blue Goose, long after the format was obsolete. The most familiar is probably R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders’ Party Record (1980), with the double-entendre “My Girl’s Pussy” on the “A” side and “Christopher Columbus” on the “B” side. Robert Crumb was the band’s frontman and album cover artist. As of 2006 he was no longer much involved with the group; the band at that time included Robert Armstrong (vocals, musical saw, guitar), Bob Brozman (vocals, various resonator instruments, guitar, ukulele), Al (Allan) Dodge (vocals, mandolin), Terry Zwigoff (saw, cello, Stroh violin, and mandolin), and Tony Marcus (vocals, guitar, and fiddle).”

Such a catchy tune…and I like cats quite a bit, too.

Did These Things Happen In The ‘Harry Potter’ Books Or Films?…

01) Did These Things Happen In The ‘Harry Potter’ Books Or Films?

“Not everything from the Harry Potter books made it into the films. After all it has to be pretty hard to stuff 4,175 pages worth of text into 20 hours of film.”

I guess I know the movies well enough, to get by…A perfect score!

At least one I had to guess at…Another is kind of misleading, and up to interpretation…but I went with the most solid answer, in my opinion.

Colorforms…

01) Irate the 80s – Colorforms (Ep 10 History & Review) Pac-Man


“Back in the 1980’s Colorforms were all the rage. For this episode we are going to check out the PACMAN themed Colorform! Includes a history and review!”


1982 GI Joe Colorforms:


Colorforms is Classic!:

“Colorforms is Classic!” features Patricia Kislevitz, who co-founded Colorforms® along with her late ex-husband, Harry Kislevitz, in 1951. Patricia provides insights into some of the early decisions in getting the Colorforms business off the ground and later developments as the brand took flight. She closes by sharing her thoughts for the future.”

I loved Colorforms!…

I used to see these in the store, and long over them.

I only had one set, though…Snoopy [or Peanuts, if you prefer]…It was purchased for me, at a yard sale.

One of my brothers got a set themed on the Muppets.

I always remember the soft feel of these things…and the smell of them…and sticking them onto the scene…It was strangely like playing dollhouse, without the embarrassment of being a boy…who was playing with a dollhouse…

…Which reminds me of the time…when one of the girls in my third grade class brought her Colorforms set to school…A huge, Barbie themed house set…I recall standing off to the side, peering over at what the gaggle of girls were doing with this thing…thinking, “That is so freaking cool!”…”I want one!”…

I wouldn’t have been caught dead asking for that set, however.

Come to think of it…while I’m confessing my deepest embarrassing, boyhood desires…I always loved dollhouses, too…particularly the well built, detailed ones.

I never felt like a girl…nor did I identify with especially girlish things, on average…But, I did like some toys made for girls.

…Well…This post has gone in a curious direction…hasn’t it?
