Tarzan TV series where the He-Man had to have had a blow dryer

This series is re-running on some channel lately. What always catches my attention is Tarzan’s hair. It looks like he just walked out of a Manhattan hair stylist. Hair is always 1990’s perfect cool.  The only time it looks like he really is a Tarzan is when he jumps in a river and that lion’s mane gets wet.  Notice the producing countries, that may be a clue as to why this series was so bad.

Tarzán was a French-Canadian-Mexican television series that aired in syndication from 1991–94. In this version of the show, Tarzan (Wolf Larson) was portrayed as a blond environmentalist, with Jane (Lydie Denier) turned into a French ecologist. The series aired in syndication in the United States.

Ron Ely, famous for playing Tarzan in the original series, played a character named Gorden Shaw in the first season episode “Tarzan the Hunted”.

Jane has a professionally manipulated doo going as well.

“Disco Inferno”

“Disco Inferno” is a song by American disco band The Trammps from their 1976 fourth studio album of the same name. With two other cuts by the group it reached number-one on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart in early 1977, but had limited mainstream success until 1978, after being included on the soundtrack to the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever, when a re-release hit number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Australia’s Best Rated Beach, one small problem, it is located on an Island 2,100 miles off the Australian Mainland

This is an A-1 Gold Star Paradise located in the Indian Ocean, roughly midway between Australia and Sri Lanka. The Territory of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, also called Cocos Islands and Keeling Islands, is a territory of Australia. The beaches are spectacular.

Did your favourite make the cut? Incredible beach that you’ve probably never heard of is named Australia’s best – as Bondi fails to make the top 20

  • Beach expert Brad Farmer released his book, 101 Best Beaches 2017, with Cossies Beach taking the top spot
  • It is a remote beach in the Indian Ocean, 3,000 km north-west of Perth, and can be reached by a 4.5hr flight
  • Cossies was named after Australian Governor-General Peter Cosgrove in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands  

Natural beauty has landed a remote beach in the Indian Ocean the prestigious title of Australia’s best beach.

Tourism Australia’s beach ambassador Brad Farmer released his book on Saturday, 101 Best Beaches 2017, crowning Cossies Beach – named after Governor-General Peter Cosgrove – in the Cocos Islands as the country’s top sandy shore.

‘It’s as near to perfect as a beach can be,’ Farmer said, comparing it to the Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays.

Farmer has been writing about beaches for the past 30 years and has seen about 4,000 Australian beaches in his lifetime.

With his colleague Professor Andy Short, a coastal geomorphologist, Farmer spent almost half a year trekking around Australia’s coastline to assess the nation’s top beaches.

Watch Scene from ‘Pulp Fiction’

Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American neo-noir black comedy crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who conceived it with Roger Avary. Starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman, it tells several stories of criminal Los Angeles. The title refers to the pulp magazines and hardboiled crime novels popular during the mid-20th century, known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue.

British Woman Claims to Have Fallen in Love with Alien that Abducted Her

In a bizarre story out of Britain, a woman claims that she has fallen in love with an alien from the Andromeda galaxy after the ET had abducted her. Actress Abbie Bela’s remarkable romance reportedly started when she lamented online about her lackluster love life, particularly her problems with “men from Earth,” which led her to joke that perhaps she would have better luck dating an alien. Shortly thereafter, she began having recurring dreams of a white light and these mysterious experiences culminated with one magical evening wherein she believes that she met her soulmate from outer space.

Having been instructed by a voice in her dream to “wait in the usual spot” the following night, she sat perched by her window and, suddenly, “a flying saucer appeared outside.” The actress was quickly transported onto the craft by way of a green beam. While aboard the UFO, Bela says, she encountered five extraterrestrials who were “very tall and slender,” yet also appeared somewhat human. According to Bela, she immediately felt smitten with one particular ET and, to her surprise, the alien was also overtaken by love at first sight when they connected.

The entity was apparently so enamored with the actress that she was offered the opportunity to remain on the ship and pursue the unorthodox relationship, but Bela was fearful of being forced to leave Earth forever, so she opted to return home. Alas, like a Shakespearean play, this was the last she saw of her would-be interstellar paramour, though she has not given up hope that they will meet again. Keeping an overnight bag packed for when the alien returns, Bela mused that “I hope he comes back. I am willing to visit the Andromeda galaxy.”

Pentagon Report Said to be Inconclusive Regarding Nature and Origins of UFOs

All the people that claim the U.S. government knows more about UFOs than they are letting on are wishful thinkers. To put it simply, they don’t know what the hell these things are.

Those hoping for answers to the UFO mystery in the forthcoming and highly anticipated Pentagon report on unidentified aerial phenomena will undoubtedly be disappointed as the study is said to be largely inconclusive regarding the nature and origins of these puzzling objects. Although it will not be released to the public until sometime later this month, a blockbuster New York Times piece published late Thursday evening provided a glimpse into the report’s contents by way of “senior administration officials briefed on the findings.” Said to have examined more that 120 UAP cases from the last 20 years as well as foreign military encounters with unidentified objects, the study apparently fails to answer the all-important question of what these UFOs are.

Specifically, the report indicates that the government found “no evidence” that UFOs are “alien spacecraft,” while also ruling out the possibility that they are secret technology developed by the United States military, though whether or not the Pentagon would reveal such a thing is up for debate. Another often cited suspect, weather balloons, was dismissed in many cases due to the manner in which the objects behaved. One troubling scenario raised by the report is that the UAPs are a display of some kind of “hypersonic technology” harnessed by Russia or China. Ultimately, however, the study offers no definitive conclusion and indicates that the Pentagon simply cannot explain some of the more fantastic cases in which objects accelerate at tremendous speeds, perform hard-to-fathom maneuvers, and submerge into water.

The Times’ reporting was subsequently confirmed by CNN, who quoted a Congressional aide as saying “most people would be hoping for visual evidence of little green men, which is almost certainly not going to be the case.” To that end, UFO enthusiasts can take some solace in the fact that the inconclusive nature of the study at least leaves open the possibility that perhaps some of these cases are extraterrestrial in nature, especially since one is left to wonder, short of the recovery of an actual ET or one of the vehicles, what the government would consider evidence for these objects being alien spacecraft. That said, it would sadly appear that the report will not be the ‘disclosure moment’ long yearned for by the UFO research community and that the same questions that have perplexed investigators for decades will continue to go unanswered.

Perhaps the most intriguing question arising from what are said to be the report’s findings is what might happen next as it does not appear that the study offered any recommendations for subsequent steps of inquiry from the United States government. Given that these objects cannot be identified, it stands to reason that further investigation would be warranted, especially since they could be exotic technology developed by adversarial nations. Additionally, some have suggested that the report could lead to Congressional hearings regarding the phenomenon, though it is doubtful that such an exercise would be fruitful as far as finding out answers regarding the phenomenon since it would presumably be more political theater rather than an earnest inquiry. And so, as is so often the case with the UFO phenomenon, the answer to the mystery remains maddeningly out of reach.

And no, these are not Chinese or Russian aircraft. Both of these countries didn’t have 5th generation fighter aircraft until recently. The Americans have had this technology for over 25 years.

One of the Worst Movies Ever Made

Robot Monster (or Monster from Mars) is a 1953 independently made American black-and-white 3D science-fiction film, remembered in later decades as one of the worst movies ever made. It was produced and directed by Phil Tucker, written by Wyott Ordung, and stars George Nader, Claudia Barrett, and George Barrows. The production company was Three Dimension Pictures, Inc. The film was distributed by Astor Pictures.

Robot Monster tells the story of the alien robot Ro-Man’s mission to Earth to destroy humanity. He manages to kill all but eight survivors, who have become immune to his death ray. Ro-Man runs afoul of the Great Guidance, his leader, when he becomes attracted to the human Alice. She is the eldest daughter of a surviving scientist, and he refuses to harm her. The Great Guidance must now come to Earth and finish what the Moon robot started.
