90's Mortal Kombat Characters Get Work!


I apologize for the lack of updates this weekend. I was mourning the loss of the amazing Amy Winehouse & just didn't feel up to it. I know this is a 90's blog and that's off subject so let's continue shall we...

90's Throwback Vid of the Day: Joan Osborne (One of Us)


90's Babe of the Day: Kelly Bundy

The 90's babe of the day is dedicated to Christina Applegate OR better known as Kelly Bundy from the hit show "Married with Children." 

I found her character as the dumb blonde daughter of Al Bundy very relatable! ahaha! =D Kelly was a man eater & inspiring actress...something we both have in common! ahaha! She was into the the bad boy type, and her parents were into the gifts her admirers would shower her with (like steak for instance.) ahaha!
Christina Applegate went on to become a successful actress in real life. Some would even argue she did the best out of the cast after the show wrapped. I couldn't think of a better 90's babe than Ms. Applegate herself!

SAD FACT: In 2008 Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer =( They had to remove one of her breasts, but thankfully she is living cancer free today!

Subliminal Messages in Rocko's Modern Life?

Rocko's Modern Life has got to be one of my favorite shows I watched as a 90's kid. I think apart of what made this little Wallaby living in the modern world so enjoyable was how edgy the humor was. 
Sure in comparison to the humor in shows today like "Family Guy", Rocko may not seem all that rebellious..but it definitely was ahead of it's time. I catch on to a lot more watching the show now that I'm grown as opposed to when I was young. Here are some examples of possible subliminal messages in Rocko's Modern Life:
* Rocko and the guys frequented a restaurant called “Chokey Chicken”, however the name of the restaurant was later changed to “Chewy Chicken.”

* Rocko’s favorite hobby was “jacking” (as “jackhammering” is often shortened to).

* Rocko and the guys played a game called “Spank the Monkey”, where there was a monkey on the table between them and they all are holding paddles before Mr. Bighead enters the room and asks them to go bowling.

* During one episode, Rocko and Heffer walk past a demonstration pit for jackhammers which reads, “Jack all you want.”

* In “Who Gives a Buck?”, on Rocko’s credit card, you see, in capital letters “A$$”.

* Rocko, after getting fired from his job, is seen briefly holding a job as a phone-sex operator, where he is talking on the phone in a monotone voice, repeating the words, “Oh baby, oh baby, oh baby.” Rocko later realizes that his customer is Mrs. Bighead, and both parties then hang up. (There was also a sign on the wall that read, “Remember: be hot, be naughty, be courteous”.)

* Rocko finds another job where he is tattooing a rhinoceros named ‘Mr. Horny’.

* A show in Rocko’s Modern Life is called “The Fatheads”, though in the show’s universe, it’s a send-up of the Bigheads and their lifestyle as created by their cartoonist son, Ralph Bighead.

* Rocko’s dog Spunky falls in love with a mop, and there is a scene where the mop and Spunky are cuddling, then a not-so-sexual montage that shows a train speeding through a tunnel and someone spreading mayonnaise on a slice of bread.

* The city of “Ballzach” was shown in an episode.

* Heffer had a nudist party in Rocko’s backyard. (With a nudist band known as, “The Dangles”.)

* When Rocko goes to buy a new bowl for Spunky, he goes to Dog World in the mall, and the guy says, “Hop on our doggy style bowl rides, everybody on your hands and knees!”

* Filburt pretends to be a woman on more than one occasion (and pretends to be Rocko’s wife so Rocko could stay in the country, in an episode spoofing The Odd Couple).

* The Bunmaster TV ads show a guy shoving his buttocks in front of the camera.

* The Wolfe family referring to Rocko as a “beaver” and Grandpa Wolfe suggested that they “eat the beaver.”

* In “Hut Sut Raw”, Rocko finds what looks like two berries side by side on a bush while camping. When he plucks one of the berries, a bear runs out of the bushes clutching his groin in pain. This scene was cut from later airings.

* In the episode where Mrs. Bighead tries to seduce Rocko, she offers him a drink which she had covertly spiked with spanish fly. Literally, she sprinkles brown flies with sombreros and ponchos into his drink.

* In “Wacky Delly”, during the scene in which Rocko, Heffer and Filburt expose the film, Heffer is heard shouting “Stop touching me!” Filburt begins apologizing profusely but fails to be forgiven by Heffer. It should be evident where Heffer was touched to make him that angry.

* In the episode when Heffer gets Rocko on a dating show, it is mentioned that the fish lady “has a fetish for short wallabies”.

* In “Flu-en-u-enza”, Rocko who has the flu, visits a doctor named, “Bendova”, who gives him a prostate exam.

* In one episode, the one where Rocko accidentally orders a complete TV/Stereo system, Rocko, Filburt, and Heffer are watching movies. The first movie shown is called “Night of the Shaved Kittens”.

* In “Leap Frogs”, Mrs. Bighead hands some cash to Rocko (who is not wearing a shirt), for helping her around the house. Seconds later, Mr. Bighead walks in the door and catches the two. A surprised Rocko quickly explains, “It’s not what you think!”.

* A character often known simply as Hippo Lady has made a few appearances on the show, often accompanied by her line of dialogue in a very deep voice, “How dare you!” On one occasion in a supermarket, Rocko falls into her cleavage and gets stuck.

* One character, Bob Bucky Taylor (a spoof of Tim Taylor of Home Improvement which in turn is a spoof of Bob Vila), said on a tv ad that he and his crew built a “26 room fellatio mansion”. (later, he also stated, “I can’t tell a hammer from a hemorrhoid!”)

* In the episode where Spunky falls in love with a broom, a faint sqeaking is heard, possibly referring to a sexual act towards the broom. Spunky does this once, and so does his Psychiatrist.

* In “Commuted Sentence”, Rocko’s car gets impounded, and there is a scene where his car calls him from the impound lot. After asking Rocko to get him out of the lot, Rocko’s car looks over his shoulder, and spots a semi with a menacing grin on his face who laughs at him. Then, Rocko’s car yells to him, “hurry!” The view then shifts back to Rocko, and the sound of metal squeaking against metal, can be heard from the phone. This hints that Rocko’s car was being sodomized. To prove this further, when Rocko comes to pick up his car, he asks the man at the lot, “I’ve come to pick up my car, it’s the red one.” The man at the lot tells him, “yeah, the other cars call him ‘fancy fenders’. (he then says in a disgusted voice) A term of endearment I’m sure.”

* Really Really Big Man at one point tells Rocko to ‘gaze into my nipples of the future,’ after which RRBM’s nipples attatch themselves to Rocko’s eyes

* In the episode “manic mechanic” right before the car returns from sky and into the original body, you can see the words HIV being spelled out with wooden boards.
* In the episode “closet clown” there are numerus jokes that compare being a clown to being gay.

* In the episode “The Good, the Bad, and the Wallaby”, while Heffer is sleeping in a barn with cows, a farmer comes along, mistakes him for a cow, and “hooks him up” to an automated milking machine. After a few seconds of sucking sounds, facial contortions, and stars in his eyes, Heffer orgasms. This scene was only showed once and was removed from further airings.

* On “Road Rash”, Heffer and Rocko stop at a motel advertising “hourly rates” and “wa-wa beds” (vibrating beds), called, “The No-Tell Motel”. They are told by the man at the front desk, that the place is full, and a room will not be available for twenty minutes. A buzzer suddenly interupts the man, and the man tells them, “oh, we have premature departure, you can have room now. How long you want?” Rocko tell him, “Just till tomorrow.” The man responds, “All night? (he then whistles) ok?!” This hints that the motel is rented by prostitutes on the hour. (This scene was shown the first time the episode aired. It was cut from later airings.)

* One of Filburt and Dr. Hutchinson’s babies looks like Heffer. This suggests that Dr. Hutchinson and Heffer had sex. (Actually in the context of the show, all four of Filbert’s and Hutchinson’s were hatched from one egg. When trying to keep it warm Filbert found out he’s a failure at egg sitting and had Heffer do it, who took the role very seriously. At the end of the episode four babbies hatched from the one egg, and apparently because of egg sitting one of the kid’s took on Hef’s apperance in a form of strange cartoon logic.)

* Mr. Bighead, Rocko’s next door neighbor, constantly has a problem with Rocko’s dog playing around in his front yard. Specifically, and to quote Ed Bighead himself, he hates having “Spunky in his salmon bushes”

* At the end of “Power Trip”, Rocko tells Really Really Big Man, “thanks Really Really Big Man, we’ve all been touched by your bigness.”
* When Heffer discovered he was adopted he went searching for his real parents and came to what he thought was his father’s tombstone. While he was crying his father appeared in a vision and explained that he’s not dead, nor is that his grave. After which there’s a cut showing that the grave reads “Here lies a big wet cat”.

Separated at Birth

The 90's Comeback in Full Force! Beavis & Butthead to Return!

America's sweethearts, Beavis & Butthead are set to make a comeback to MTV very soon! 

Beliebve it or not (<-- see what I did there HAHA I am a genius) our beloved Justin Bieber actually broke the story via Twitter awhile back! 

A big part of what made Beavis & Butthead so special for us in the 90's was the music video segments! These days I sometimes feel like my friends & I are Beavis & Butthead whenever we have commentary on videos! ahaha It is known now that in the new version the boys will comment on not only current music videos, but youtube clips, Jersey Shore clips, etc. 
I'm guessing it'll be like Beavis & Butthead's version of "Tosh 2.0" haha or at least something to that degree

The creator Mike Judge will be showing footage of the new episodes at tomorrow's Comic-Con in San Diego! Check back here tomorrow for the footage!

90's Babe of the Day: Becky Conner's Man Mark Healy

The 90's babe of the day is dedicated to Glenn Quinn or better known in the 90's as Becky Conner's main squeeze Mark Healy on the cult hit "Roseanne."

He played the bad boy greaser that Roseanne didn't want her daughter to be taken over, but with a face like that who could blame her! Mr. Conner hired Mark to work at their bike shop, but eventually they eloped behind her parents back, and at one point moved into a trailer home (insert ROFLMAO here ;P) ahahaha

The couple then moved into Becky's parents come where they remained for the rest of the series. 

The Conner girls apparently liked to keep in the family cause Becky's sister ended up marrying & having a baby with Mark's little bro, David Healy. hahaha.     

Oddly enough, Glenn played an American on TV. He was actually Irish and had a heavy accent! 

After the show wrapped he played a half-demon in the show "Angel."

Photographs really don't do the man justice! If you were a fan of the show you know what I'm talking about! He was definitely yummy :) 

SAD FACT: Glenn died of a heroin overdose in 2002 :( His body was found on the couch of a friend he was visiting in North Hollywood, California.


90's Throwback Vid of the Day: Weezer Edition

Weezer - Undone -- The Sweater Song (1994)

Weezer - Say It Ain't So (1995)

Weezer - Buddy Holly (1994)

Then & Now: Baywatch Edition

Before we knew them as the sex symbols we do today, Pamela Anderson & Carmen Electra were just starting to create a buzz for themselves in the 90's with the show, Baywatch. 

With a doubt, Pamela Anderson is still a femme fatale! One thing I will say about Canada is that they create GORGEOUS women! She's a model, actress, playmate, and is a very active animal rights activist. 

She invented the celebrity sex tape scandal in the nineties with her infamous honey moon sex tape with then husband, Tommy Lee of Motley Crue fame. 

This wouldn't be her only sex tape to appear in the nineties. She also appeared in a explicit video with Poison front man, Bret Michael's.

In the new millennium Anderson married rocker Kid Rock, but they also ended up in divorce. 

Say what you want about the vixen, but she's definitely going down in pop culture history as one bad ass chick!

Dubbed "Carmen Electra" by then boyfriend Prince in the nineties. She was his protégé at the time whom he was also dating. In 1993 she released her self titled debut album to lukewarm reviews thus ending her music career. 

She then appeared in a spread for Playboy in 1996 that lead to her being casted for MTV's "Singled Out", as well as Baywatch. 

She apparently has a thing for girly men because she then married basketball player Dennis Rodman in Vegas of '98, but then got divorced the following year. 

Throughout the new millennium she's appeared in various movies, and got married for the 2nd time to rock musician Dave Navarro. Unfortunately, the marriage did not last either. 

However, that didn't stop Electra from getting engaged to Rob Patterson of the metal band Otep in 2008. 
Just like her fellow Baywatch cast-mate, Ms. Electra will always be known for her certified bombshell status more than her acting accomplishments, BUTT...

You can't knock the girl because this pussycat has remained relevant and is still beyond gorgeous!
