oaktown357Tabitha “Terrible T” King and DJuana “Sweet L.D.” Johnican started out as backup dancers for MC Hammer back in the late 80’s early 90’s but they soon ventured out on their own to form Oaktown 3-5-7. Their biggest hit was “Juicy Gotcha Krazy”, but my favorite was “Wild & Loose”. I mean, what’s not to like about the video? There’s a little bit of everything: spandex, Hammer pants, tigers, bubble baths, beauty salons, bumpin’ n grindin’, Gumby fades, the list goes on. Maybe Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is a fan too? Did you see the silhouettes against neon colors throughout the video?

I remember watching this on Soul Beat (“TV Network number ooooonnnnnnneeeeeee!!!!”) and breaking a sweat trying to mimic their dance moves. These ladies were in shape!

Check out Big Man blowin’ at around the 3:20 mark.


Zodiac Killer Identified?

Was this The Zodiac?

Was this The Zodiac?

The Zodiac terrorized the Bay Area from the 1960’s and 1970’s killing at least eight people and like fellow serial killer Jack the Ripper, his identity has been one of mystery with many throughout the years speculating it. But, one man Dennis Kaufman from Pollack Pines, CA (near Sacramento) claims to know who the infamous killer was – his late step-father Jack Tarrance.

The FBI are investigating Kaufman’s claims by examining evidence he’s provided like handwriting samples, a mask that bears a striking resemblance to the one a survivor described, and a knife that appears to have a dried red substance on it, possibly blood. A hoax or has the mystery been solved? Link! via Neatorama
