Your wife wants you to have these state-of-the-art jumping stilts.

I doubt it but I'll ask.

If, like me, you detest onscreen YouTube annotations, here’s some useful advice.

“The skill of gymnastics, the kill of karate.”

Some friends rented a VHS of that in the 80s. In our defence we were very drunk.

Setting aside the insane plot, the inept acting, the incompetent stunts, the ludicrous dubbing, the terrible dialogue and the random appearance of badly disguised gymnastics equipment – setting aside all that - it does deserve some credit. I mean, how many other low-budget martial arts films feature endlessly inventive crotch shots and a monk in an inexplicably backless robe?

It is, quite clearly, a work of demented genius.

Why, I wonder, did people in the 1960s imagine starship captains would dress like gay dentists?

David

The brocade V-neck does seem a bit much.

Minnow

Made from pure, polymerised rohypnol.

David

“Why is Captain Kirk climbing the mountain?” To make love to it, obviously.

Thank you, David!

Thank you, David!

Well, it’s made my YouTube watching experience slightly less aggravating. Some people do like their captions a little too much. I was recently watching a short video review, maybe seven minutes long. It had 16 annotations, each of which seemed to hang around forever and had to be clicked off manually. Along with the usual banner ad.

I have just had a very troubling hallucination. Sinewy bodies ... fingers ... teeny toes. All too much. I think I should lay off the coffee for a bit. Maybe a quick lie down.

So they finally updated the Teasmaid

So they finally updated the Teasmaid.

I vaguely remember my parents having one of those. I can’t say whether it was ever actually used.

Minnow

My parents used the Teasmaid just about every day that I can remeber. I think it was only put away when my dad died. They made things to last in the UK in the 1970s you know. Every night it was ritually set up before bed so that they could enjoy a tepid, tea-flavoured, milk and water drink before they even got out of bed in the morning!

To be fair, coffee pots have had clocks on them for decades, allowing you to select what time you want the brewing to start. This just synchronizes it with your alarm clock.

One of the best Friday collection of Ephemera ever! I admire your internetting skills, sir! Thank you. :)

David

One of the best Friday collections of Ephemera ever! Thank you.

I’m happy to please. Do feel free to remember that warm, satisfied glow when my fundraiser starts at the end of the month.

Minnow

I appreciate the ephemera too, but I am unwilling to financially reward anyone who has obviously been googling 'gay men vaginas'.

Rafi

Don't be cheap, Minnow. You must spend hours here. ;-)

*hits tip jar*

Minnow

It's a dilemma. On the one hand it will encourage him, but on the other it will encourage him.

Sharknado 0.01?

dicentra

"Gymkata!" was a frequent interjection on Mystery Science Theater 3000, used whenever an awkward karate-like move was used.

Which, that might have been every episode.

Now I want to see random unfiltered submissions from a women studies department of lesbians draw penii. After that I would like them to be categorized by distinct characteristics and then I wish to play a family feud style guessing game from this data

Most penis's drawn by lesbians were __X__?

survey says, show me:
severed 37
a weapon 21
触手 7
tentacle like!

Apparently the Devil comes as Wisdom and Discernment. Who knew?

sackcloth and ashes

'It is, quite clearly, a work of demented genius'.

The question here is whether it measures up to the standards set by 'The Man from Hong Kong', Australia's first (and to my my mind, only) martial arts film:
