Seagal vs Van Damme Debate

Not much is known about the bitter feud between Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme. I first heard rumblings about the dislike between the two, when Seagal was a guest on The Arsenio Hall Show. Since then and especially now-a-days after the release of The Expendables 2, rumors have been circulating, even from the mouth of Sylvester Stallone. Sly claimed that a fight nearly broke up during a party he hosted in 1997. “At a party in my home in Miami in 1997, Van Damme was tired of Seagal claiming he could kick his ass so he offered Seagal outside into my back yard,” “Seagal made his excuses and left. But Van Damme, who was berserk, tracked him down at a nightclub and offered him out again,” he added. Though the fight did not ensue the altercation between the two stars, Stallone is sure that Seagal would fall deficient had the brawl taken place.

Skinheads break Geraldo’s Nose

In the 1980’s, Geraldo Rivera was the producer and host of a controversial daytime talk show which featured over-the-top topics and guests. The show was often characterized as “Trash TV”, but captivated audiences with its sheer spectacle of debauchery. In 1988, Geraldo was the host for a heated debate featuring white supremacists, antiracist skinheads, black activists and Jewish activists. In one of the most publicized incidents in television history, a brawl broke out resulting in Geraldo’s nose being broken. Here it is…  

THROWBACK THURSDAY – Ghost by Michael Jackson

Because we will undoubtedly make reference to Thriller this month on The Nostalgia Blog, it seemed appropriate to throwback to the less popular short Halloween-like film Michael Jackson released entitled “Ghosts.” In 1997, The King of Pop released a short film/music video that was co-written by horror writer Stephen King. In it Jackson plays a scary Maestro with supernatural powers who is being forced out of his small town by its mayor. Jackson also plays the mayor and 3 other characters…props for doing a decent job. I fondly remember the 3D graphics including Jackson breaking his skeleton-skull. The 30+ minute film was shortened for music video release (song also called Ghosts), which you can watch below…  

Coca Cola sings to the Blue Jays

Tomorrow, the Toronto Blue Jays start their post-season against the Texas Rangers. And for the first time since 1993….the team is actually good. Toronto has always been a hotspot for sports, but sadly hasn’t had a winning team (in any sport minus Canadian football) since the Jays won back-to-back World Series in 92/93. To celebrate the teams World Series victory of the 90s, Coca Cola ran television advertisements where they sang a song about Toronto’s winners… Cleverly, Coke has rehashed their nostalgic tune for the 2015 Jays who just might go all the way. And even if they don’t, we are “proud of our Blue Jays.”

Wanna Have My Secret?: Very Sexual 80s Hair Replacement Commercial

He’s got a secret. I wonder what it is? He’s definitely hiding something under that porno-stache. Speaking of porno, this commercial starts off like a bad 1980’s VHS sex flick. Why is she moaning? Is her head turned away because she doesn’t want to be on camera? More likely she doesn’t want to be seen with this loser once you find out his secret.
