REJOICE.



Today, TNUC disciples and followers of the good book can rejoice and be glad because this blog turns one years old! This is actually a one year anniversary that celebrates an over 25-year struggle that TNUC fought to get to the top. To clear up any confusion, if you weren’t already aware, TNUC was actually the #1 blog in 1985, but sadly excess got the best of TNUC, and the hard-living, fast cars/fast women lifestyle soon turned to overdoses, rehab, divorce hearings, car crashes, and Quaaludes which put TNUC on hold throughout the 90’s. It wasn’t until one year ago today that TNUC rose from the gutter to kickstart this labyrinth.

Paulie (real name Paulie Pannino), an alcoholic and meat packing plant worker, would like to accept this overlooked robotic gift of the decade on behalf of TNUC…


As you will see in the latter part of the video, Paulie has since transformed this harmless robotic friend into some sort of electronic sex doll. Evidence of the perverted alcoholic taking advantage of this unique gift is when he refers to the robot as “his girl”. Also notice the uncomfortable expression by Apollo Creed.

“I wanted a sportscar, not no walking trash can!”

MICHAEL DOUGLAS STRESSED OUT SEX THRILLERS.

Nobody graces the screen with barely legal levels of stress and is pushed to the ultimate brink like our pal Michael Douglas. I mean nobody. From 1987 to 1994 alone he was involved in 3 seductive thrillers with some of the most luscious ladies in the business. These films featured unforgettable steamy scenes as well as a brilliant portrayal of a man pushed to the edge in every way, shape and form. This Michael Douglas sexual trifecta we’re referring to is of course Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct and Disclosure.
 
Lets examine some mandatory aspects: 

The Look? Hair slicked back, sweat, trench coat, slacks with pleats, tassel loafers and over sized, dramatic aviator sunglasses.

The Goods? A carton of cigarettes, firm drink (straight, no rocks) and an $80,000 car.
The Feeling? High stress, high blood pressure and exceedingly high sexual tension.

There’s no doubting it, Michael Douglas brings a certain ambiance to his movies that I must thank the Valerie Collective for reminding me about. It just so happens that in the past three years, the great Valerie project College has channeled this distinct atmosphere we speak of into three very special mixes. Here’s what he had to say…”Michael Douglas gives off a certain charisma in his films that has inspired me to make a little mix for August. I think we can call this the ‘Douglas Touch”. After taking pleasure in these mixes, be sure to follow up by re-discovering Michael’s filmography with classics not mentioned like Wall Street, Black Rain and Falling Down, where you will bare witness to new dimensions of stress. Enjoy.

SPIROS: A MIX SONG FOR YOU.

Just last week a mysterious letter landed on the doorstep of Camp TNUC from an undisclosed region of the Mediterranean. In the letter, a man named SPIROS writes about a particular brand of disco that we’ve featured here on this site entitled ‘Way-Slo’. Something about this music touched SPRIOS in such a way that he went on to create a special mix that you can hear exclusively here today. The following letter proves once again that the good book of TNUC has become a worldwide phenomenon..
 
Friend,

I am glad I am able to contact you again. I see you like the way slow music. Then you and I are friend in passion and music. I do wish to spread way slow in my home country. I hope you can one day visit my home country to share beauty like we discuss. My villa has balcony with white billowing curtains overlooking Mediterranean, where I take many woman to share moonlight and romance. You understand, yes?

It is beautiful breezy day here on Mediterranean. I sit on my balcony with glass of wine, and think about our good times while I watch waves crash on rocks. Remember we discuss passion?

I make very special mix song for you with sounds of my home country, soul and passion.

Sincerly,

SPIROS

[DAY 6] STINGRAY.

BOOB TUBE AWARENESS WEEK: [DAY 6]
PROGRAM: STINGRAY
INFO: For the 6th and final day of Boob-Tube-Awareness-Week, the following series has been carefully selected to serve as the best of the best of forgotten television. Before we get started, if you’re ever introducing a newcomer to the world of TNUC, just make them watch this intro theme to this massively underrated show and I assure you, this will guide them in the right direction. Stingray stars Nick Mancuso as Ray, who lives in Southern California, devoting his time to helping those who are in trouble. His background is shadowy, all that is known about him is that he advertises anonymously in newspapers, offering a “’65 black Stingray for Barter Only” and including a telephone number (555-7687). Ray does not charge money for his help; instead, he extracts a promise from his client in advance that the client will repay Ray in the future by performing a favor, perhaps easy, perhaps difficult, upon Ray’s request. He is also a skilled driver and accomplished martial artist, and is excellent at covering his tracks and hiding his real identity. Ray’s other talents include a photographic memory, speed reading, the ability to slow down his heart to barely perceptible levels, and a knack for adopting personas including an arrogant surgeon, a tent-revival preacher, a crippled Vietnam veteran, and a grieving husband. If that still doesn’t impress you, he is also a skilled computer hacker, capable of accessing and altering data systems and coordinating information retrieval.
LIFESPAN: July 14, 1985 – May 8, 1987 (2 Seasons).
CHANNEL: NBC.
DVD STATUS: Stingray: The Complete Series is available for purchase at a video outlet near you.
MUSICAL THEME: From watching the intro theme, it’s crystal clear that the music of Stingray plays a large role in the series. Mike Post and Pete Carpenter created the overall score to the show, as well as coming up with music synched to frequent quick-cutting of visuals in time during many episodes. The show also featured music video style interludes, complete with original, script-specific pop songs, usually sung by obscure rock and pop vocalists (think Miami Vice style). Stream + download the opening title theme below, and prepare to have this little number repeating in your head for days, nights, weekends and holidays.

[DAY 5] AIRWOLF.


BOOB TUBE AWARENESS WEEK: [DAY 5]


PROGRAM: AIRWOLF.
INFO: Now some readers might be thinking that choosing Airwolf is somewhat of a predictable move for Uncle T. The fact of the matter is, Airwolf is my current obsession and I couldn’t go about my week without including this gripping piece of forgotten television. For those of you who don’t already have Airwolf on your radar, the show stars the underrated Jan Michael Vincent playing one of the greatest character names to ever grace the tube, STRINGFELLOW HAWKE. Hawk is a loner who lives in a cabin outside of Los Angeles, CA in a mountain range resort area. He spends his days alone serenading eagles that fly over his home with his priceless cello (see picture below). Without giving away any spoilers, eventually Hawke starts to operate an advanced, supersonic military helicopter, code name Airwolf, and starts to undergo various flying missions for secretive national importance.
LIFESPAN: January 22, 1984 – August 7, 1987 (4 Seasons).
CHANNEL: CBS/USA.
DVD STATUS: All 4 seasons are available for purchase at a video outlet near you.
MUSICAL THEME: Put it this way, Sylvester Levay’s original soundtrack has become such a wanted item in the past few years that eBay bids were in the region of $350–$510 per set. On March 18, 2000 the bids culminated in a new record for a television soundtrack when a set sold for $715.03 on eBay. This was eventually broken on March 25, 2004 when a Washington-based seller sold his 2CD set for $765.03, and then for a third time $981.74 on the March 10, 2006 declaring the Airwolf soundtrack the ‘Most Expensive Television Soundtrack of all Time’. But fear not of these sky-high prices, the highly recommended score can now be purchased on Mp3 as a 2CD Official Special Limited Edition at AirwolfThemes.com. Stream + download one of the many riveting pieces of Airwolf below.
