Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch Cassette Single "Good Vibrations"
Is it ok to call this a "cassingle," because I think I remember that term. For any interested parties, the B-side is "So What Chu Sayin." Actually, the text on the reverse lists the A-side as the "Wildside" and the B-side as the "Smoove Side." Yes, you're reading that correctly.
My request for '88 commons was heard loud and clear, but there was more to be found. Below are some of the highlights.
I knew a good Dodger man would come through with a card from my Most Wanted list. Now someone just needs to send me that pesky Jay Bruce. I'm holding out on this one, and will refuse to pick it up from COMC or the like.
These are best appreciated one at a time, so you can savor them.
I've finally figured out what to call these. Though not as common as the sweet borbonesque liquorfractors, the blue ones popped up from time to time. I'd like to suggest calling them Velvafractors, as in Aqua Velva. The shade of blue is almost a perfect match, and if you're holding one of these, you've got a nice manly smell going.
Here's a little exercise I'd like you to try with this card. Look at it for a few seconds. Then look away. While looking away, get the idea in your head that Henderson is part of a community theatre troupe and the character he's playing in the spring feature happens to be blind. Now look back at the card. See? He's looking right at you, but he's also not looking at you. A true Stanislavsky method actor displaying mastery of his craft. He'll be sticking around for a short talkback after the Saturday matinee.
Alright, since there's a heated three-way tie at the top of the leader board, this DVD cover connection is going to be a little more labyrinthine than usual, a little more six degrees than usual. The connection is there, but you're going to have to put some thought into it. I'll offer one hint, though: Follow the steps of the dinosaur.
