As the Bears would return to the World Football Crown in 1937, the burgeoning Redskins withstood the challenge with a newly signed rookie from Texas Christian University, a quarterback by the name of Sammy Baugh. "Slingin' Sammy" Baugh, as he would come to be known, was particularly notable for his forward pass, a somewhat unusual play in the 1930's. Baugh was also unique in the variety of positions he played, including punter, cornerback and quarterback. With Baugh their secret weapon, the Redskins would defeat the Bears 28-21, banishing Chicago from respectable competitiveness until the 1940's. See more at: www.weirdovideo.com

You know you've made the Big Time when you're leading a band that's accompanied with a chorus line of perky flappers. But then again, if you're Ted Weems in the late 1920's & early 1930's, this is the life of a famous radio bandleader. Just another day at the beach on the Eastern Seaboard during the Jazz Age, perhaps in Coney Island or Atlantic City. See more films at: http://www.weirdovideo.com

Although Bill Haley's later sanitized version became a top rock-n-roller hit, it's said many folks sought out Turner's version instead. A pivotal figure in popularizing blues, jazz, classic R&B, and rock and roll, Turner's career lasted from the 1920's busking on the streets of Kansas City through the 1980's at the most lauded jazz festivals in America and Europe.

Amazing to think that professional people got paid to cook up masterpieces such as Gothic American Cornflakes. But are times really different today, forty years later? The recipe is quite simple, really. Take one part cornflakes, one part current youth culture cliche, throw in a little General Mills dough, then marinade in Madison Avenue saccarine and ... VOILA! the old-fashioned, half-baked Saturday morning scrapple of which almost anybody can reminisce. In this case, the lyric "This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land" has been conveniently re-written as "Eat country cornflakes!" The repetition is enough is enough to make any sadistic psychological interrogator proud. One wonders if this is the culmination of the visions of Grant Wood and Woody Guthrie. One wonders ...
