Hilarious: Gumbay Dance Band

After last week’s hilarious entry of Fancy I have another one: the Goombay Dance Band.

The Gumbay Dance Band is a German Boney M spin off which best can be described as German Schlager music combined with Jamaican goombay music.

Just look at this fantastic clip:

The singer starts breathing fire, then starts singing Schlager and after a while just babbling some stuff (is that supposed to be the predecessor of rap???). He has a really nice, ahum, open shirt and with his golden curly hair he really looks like he is from Jamaica. 😉

It gets really hilarious when they start limbo dancing: those children doing limbo are crawling on the floor: that’s no limbo!! The male dancer sets the pole on fire and starts doing his limbo dance and eats the fire after passing the pole. What is this? A circus act?

Then we get a closeup of one of the woman dancers: scary!! She looks like a voodoo which!!

They still exist and still tour, so maybe you’re lucky and they will visit your town someday! Or you can just wait till 1:58 and write down their address and book them! 😛

Another hilarious posting next week. 🙂

Hilarious: Fancy – China Blue

Since last week I am using Last.fm. Normally people would use it to listen to their favorite music and such. I found that it is actually a very good tool to find the lost treasures of music. 🙂

How to use it? Simple: think of a really bad band like for instance Modern Talking and use that band on Last.fm to play similar music. Be patient and wait for Last.fm to find those little gems for you. 😉

This week I found the singer Fancy with the hit China Blue:

Not only their music is horrible and stolen from Modern Talking, but they even copied their looks from other horrible bands/artists: the singer looks like how Michael Jackson wanted to look eventually, the keyboard player and drummer look like they were borrowed from Europe and the Chinese girl, who looks Thai to me, looks like she is played by Boy George. And those bright white smile of the keyboard player!! Directly stolen from Dieter Bohlen!

I’ll add another hilarious posting next week. 🙂

Hilarious: Automan

Last week my colleague told me about this hilarious TV series from the 80s:
Automan tv series

Automan is about a computer wizzard working for the police creating an program which makes him an Artificial Intelligence hologram which fights crime, with a sidekick called Cursor which is a thing that can draw polygons into holographic images as if they were real! Take Superman, Knight Rider, Airwolf, Battlestar Galactica and Tron, mash it together and you have Automan!!

Hilarious enough Cursor becomes a Lamborgini Countach quite often in the series and he drives Automan around town and takes cornes square with any speed!
Cursor brakes, you hear the tires squeal, but he brakes instantly. Amazing!!

Of course you can’t hurt a hologram, so bullets have no use:

Amazing! I wonder why the Dutch television never picked up this high grade tv series while we were stuck with The A-Team, Knight Rider and Airwolf!

Ofcourse this is hilarious now, but back then my colleague really loved this series, just like I loved Knight Rider or The Dukes of Hazzard. Nowadays you really see poor quality on those series as well. Even the first movies of Shuto Trials look rediculous nowadays: what use is doing 180s forward and reverse on driving on the Shuto Expressway? And those action shots are all shot doing 100km/h and then doubled in speed.

What would people think of Initial D in 10 or 15 years time? Would they think it was rediculous as well? In some ways I already find it rediculous and the CGI of the first stage is really outdated nowadays and that will only get worse in 10 or 15 years of time…
