Grab your Hardy Boys lunch box – here come the ’70s

15 Minute Lunch: Strap in, shut up and hold on. We’re going back.
It’s almost shocking anyone survived the 1970s. There should have been some kind of ritual suicide for looking like this.

JC Penney 1977

Sadly, I think I owned that entire outfit. And wore it. MOM, What was wrong with you?!

This next one… I couldn’t come up with anything better than the description on the original site…

JC Penney 1977 Hutch

This kid looks like he’s pretending to be David Soul, who is pretending to be a cop who is pretending to be a pimp that everyone knows is really an undercover cop. Who is pretending to be 15.

That’s priceless…. the Leprauchan version in the lower-left is somehow even more hideous.

For more, go visit the original site linked above. Well worth the time. Painful, to be sure, but worth it.

Jack’s dead – again – but he’ll probably be back

“24″ Casulty of Writer’s Strike – Slice of SciFi

Due to the Writer’s strike, many shows are considering their options. Apparently “24” decided to throw in the towel on this year.

The seventh season of the hit real-time series was scheduled to begin in January, but producers had completed only about one-third of its 24-episode order as of last week.

I actually think that’s a good move, given the way this show works. If you can’t do a full season on this one, you just gotta pull it.

I guess it really sucks for Keifer. He accepted an overall longer jail time than he would have received otherwise for his drunk driving conviction, with the condition that the time be split so he could do the show, and thus not cost the cast and crew their jobs for his stupidity. Now there is no show to save. Don’t get me wrong… he’s getting no pity from me. I actually kind of like the irony.
