Classic 70s Music Video Of The Day

Now you know how the booty call worked before IMs and texting.

Classic 80s Music Video Of The Day

This one's for today's FOLOTD, Wendy In RI, who loves this song... even though Alpo Aldo totally ripped off Jefferson Starship's "Jane."

The best part starts at 1:10.

Found this on Wikipedia. I think Aldo might have written it himself.

Prodigiously talented, Canadian-born Aldo Nova exploded onto the '80s music scene with the self titled 1981 debut album and a huge sound that contrasted dramatically with his diminutive stature. Inspired by the guitar wizardry of Jimi Hendrix, the artist formerly known as Aldo Caporuscio picked up the guitar at age 15 and dedicated himself to mastering the instrument. He was a natural, whose wily six-string agility wowed the local Montreal music crowd and quickly drew him attention as a star on the rise.

TV Characters You'd Date Of The Day

From, whose male readers have questionable taste in women.


On PopWatch, we asked you to name the fake people you want in your life for real -- here, your (sometimes very weird) answers

JIM HALPERT (John Krasinski)
The Office

We would have so much fun pulling pranks on Dwight and Andy and we'd go to baseball games and he'd never leave me at a fountain in NYC. Of course, I'd have to pull an Eternal Sunshine on him to erase all memories of Pam, but that can be arranged. — Red

I'm sure everybody thinks to themselves, ''Oh my god, I am SO Jim/Pam! I'm so cynical, and everybody else at school/work are just a bunch of Kellys/Phyllises/Stanleys!'' But, like, for me, it's REALLY true. So I'm sure Jim would fall madly in love with me. — Emily

BREE VAN DE KAMP (Marcia Cross)
Desperate Housewives

I sorta dig that neurotic obsessive compulsive thing she's got going on. As long as I use a coaster, I've got it easy.... — Darma Boy


He's ridiculously attractive, I like ridiculously attractive guys...He likes to save people, I frequently need saving...He's usually pretty stubbly, I like's clearly a match made in heaven. — Cara

We share the same sense of morality, which I think is the most important thing in a relationship. Also, there is nothing sexier than someone who does the right thing simply because it's right. Goodness & morality are the ultimate turn-on. — Kris

SUMMER ROBERTS (Rachel Bilson)
The O.C.

We both love celebrity gossip, primetime teen soaps (The O.C. for me, The Valley for her), animal activism. Also, Seth Cohen and I are pretty much the same person, so I'm obviously her type. — Cory


I've been told I'm crazy for wanting to be with him (by almost everyone I know), but I don't care. Sure, he's a Vicodin-popping, fortysomething, sarcastic doctor with a limp, but who cares? He's smart, speaks his mind, and is very witty. As I love to argue, this works out perfectly. We could go back & forth for hours on a number of topics, from religion to celebrities. Plus, he plays the piano and a mean guitar. So hot!! — Frances

PAM BEESLY (Jenna Fischer)

The Office

From the male perspective, Pam Beesly. She is very cute, without being high-maintenance, growing in her confidence and is artsy. We share a similar light, yet sarcastic sense of humor. — James

Karen Filippelli of The Office. She's smart, funny and enjoys practical jokes, but works hard when she has to (like me). Not to mention she's unbelievably beautiful. Hey, if Jim doesn't want her.... — Ceballos

JACK BAUER (Kiefer Sutherland)

Just come in, plant one on me, and have a nice day being the bad mother (shut your mouth) that you are. — Elizabeth

MICHAEL BLUTH (Jason Bateman)

Arrested Development

Michael Bluth. He's the definition of loyalty. He had a horrible family and he always stood by them (although not always willingly). I miss this show so much! — EAP

George Michael Bluth. We would be gloriously awkward together, I'm not so forgettable that Michael would have to call me ''her?,'' I'm not his cousin, we could do cool Star Wars moves together in his garage... — Michele

Battlestar Galactica

Hands down I'd date 'Boomer' from Battlestar Galactica. The idea of a hottie robot girlfriend who looks as good in a jump suit as she does in a bikini is highly appealing. Boomer gets props for having turned against the Cylons to help mankind (which means she's willing to make changes for the love of her life), and for her willingness to cross spatial, racial and ethnic boundaries. — Sato

BRANDON WALSH (Jason Priestley)
DYLAN McKAY (Luke Perry)

Beverly Hills 90210

Definitely Brandon Walsh. While Dylan had a bit more sex appeal, Brandon was just an all-around great guy — smart, nice and very good-looking. If only he was Jewish (and a real person), he would be perfect for me! — Jill

Dylan McKay. Yes, he ended up becoming an alcoholic, and I would have to fight for him against both Brenda and Kelly, but in the end, my small-town charm and understanding of rich-boy Dylan would win him over. — Sarah A.

KAYLEE FRYE (Jewel Staite)

I've always liked tomboys. She knows how to fix mechanical things, always a plus. And they kept making her the ''ugly'' girl, where no guy seems to want her. If all the other guys in the universe are going to be idiots, I'll be all that much more special to her. — Green Gummi Bear

HORATIO CAINE (David Caruso)
GIL GRISSOM (William Petersen)

CSI: Miami and CSI

Horatio Caine.... He is a man of his word and will walk through fire to make sure I'm protected and well cared for. He also seeks out intelligent women that are strong and confident. And of course...the SUNGLASSES! — Tash

Gilbert Grissom.... There's a fire there that I'd love to build on. Yum. He's intelligent and has a quick sense of humor, sometimes biting sarcasm, which I can definitely relate to. — Rachael

JACK DONAGHY (Alec Baldwin)
LIZ LEMON (Tina Fey)

30 Rock

I want sex appeal and power — only one man can satisfy both those needs as I see it...Step right up, Mr. Executive Vice President for East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming Jack Donaghy. — banan

I'd definitely get with Liz Lemon because I really like a woman with a quick wit, and judging from the episode where she dated the boy-toy who brought the coffee, she doesn't have too many reservations dating the younger guys. — Los

MACGYVER (Richard Dean Anderson)

My first and truest love. I can even get past the mullet. Smart, adventurous, ethical, loyal, nerdtastic. Rowr! — Heather

LINDSAY WEIR (Linda Cardellini)
Freaks and Geeks

She was a little of column A, little of column B, sort of like myself. Our mutual need for fitting in would keep us hovering around each other until we just decided to start dating.... — Rob

LUKE DANES (Scott Patterson)
Gilmore Girls

A man who can cook, will let you select the clothes he wears, owns his own successful business, and wants to be involved in his (and your) daughter's life? A definite win. — xomeghan

CLAIR HUXTABLE (Phylicia Rashad)
The Cosby Show

That woman is absolutely gorgeous and dead-sexy smart. That she can hold her own in banter with Cosby is pretty formidable. And she is a great mother that tries to pass on values. Finally, she is an amazing dancer. — shawshank

ZACK MORRIS (Mark-Paul Gosselaar)
Saved by the Bell

I would so say Jim Halpert, but since everyone else took my man I will throw it way back and say Zack freaking Morris!!! He was so cool, had an awesome group of friends, and I would love to use his enormous cell phone. — kelly83

LOGAN ECHOLLS (Jason Dohring)
VERONICA MARS (Kristen Bell)

Veronica Mars

He's fiercely loyal, witty as hell, and pretty much awesome in every way. To quote Veronica, he's ''ownage.'' Sure, he used to arrange bum fights and screw his friend's stepmother, but he still manages to love with his whole heart. — Melissa

Some folks have mentioned the boys from Veronica Mars, but no man has stepped up to the plate to take V herself. I heartily volunteer. She's smart, hilarious, and a sassy lady. And she's a bombshell! — Seth

JEMAINE (Jemaine Clement)
Flight of the Conchords

I appreciate his fashion sense and his creative outlet. I like his glasses. I'd never make fun of him for being a New Zealander. And I'd kick his stalker Mel's ass! — Rachel

26 Celebrity Albums I Won't Be Buying

Who told these motherfuckers to sing?

I don't need to ask. I know what you are, Burt.

It looks like he's reading the lyrics off a crib sheet, but everybody knows Tony can't read

"Songs From My Cornhole"

Requested never to be sung again

You know how sometimes you can just look at the cover of a record and know it's gonna be good? Yeah, this isn't one of those.

A.k.a. Joe Pesci. Don't laugh -- he'll shoot you.

Hoooooooo doggy, he sucks

Next stop: Suckston

I have this one. It's awesome.

They had to put "produced by Jack White" on the cover because they knew no one would buy it otherwise

Only us old folks will get this one. Chad was on "Medical Center" in the '70s. He rocked the hair flap like nobody else.

Do "Uhura" the sound of dying animals? No, it's just this record.

This one I want.

This is Telly Savalas. I can smoke and accidentally shoot myself at the same time.

LaWanda Page was Aunt Esther on "Sanford & Son." They spared no expense on cover design.

Life goes on... until you hear this record and shoot yourself in the fucking face

You haven't lived until you've heard Leonard Nimoy sing.

Young And In Love... with myself. (Ralph was the little brother on "Good Times.")

Reeg! "When You're Smiling," Regis will sing and make that smile go away.

Cabot: Mr. French on "Family Affair" and the voice of Bagheera the panther in "Jungle Book." Dylan: High as a kite when he agreed to this.

Commandment 1: Shut up, fool!
Commandment 2: Repeat Commandment 1.

You can almost smell the hilarity coming off the record jacket.

Theo, completely lost in his own sense of awesomeness.

Where's a high-speed police chase when you need one?

Current fuckhat

Don: "I'm looking for a hearrrrrrtbeat.."
Me: "I'm looking for a baaaaaseball bat..."

That smirk says, "Yeah, I can't sing, so what? I'm a movie star. Fuck you."

Two more from my buddy Blong, who owns both.

Says Blong: "Jerry....just sings. Believe me, that's enough."

Blong: "Bob does a pretty good job with the calypso, at least for a bad ass middle-aged rummy white guy. This cd also contains "Thunder Road" as a bonus."

Best Idea Ever Of The Day: Krampus

Just ran across this tidbit in an article about bizarre Christmas traditions in other (non-US) countries:

As a tool to encourage good behavior in children, Santa serves as the carrot, and Krampus is the stick. Krampus is the evil demon anti-Santa, or maybe his evil twin. Krampus Night is celebrated on December 5th, the eve of St. Nicholas Day in Austria and other parts of Europe. People dress as Krampus and roam the streets looking for people (presumably, incorrigible children) to beat with a stick.

HELL. YES. Check this mo-fo out:

From Mental Floss.
