SOLID GOLD! Putting rhythm in my soul...
The meeester and I are currently in another faux-spat. His blog has an entry about "guilty pleasures" -- movies you secretly like, yet others roll their eyes over. [start long and useless explanation] For us, it's "Dude, Where's My Car?" We were quite tipsy the first time we saw it, and everything was funny -- from the "dude...sweet" scene, to the bubble wrap suits, to the special treats and pudding. Because I refuse to play your Chinese food mind games.

And for me, it's "Grease 2". Before you start throwing things at me, I do not think it's better than the original. But just try to stop me from singing the "Reproduction" song! I want a cool rider. I'll be your girl for all seasons. The whole year through. However, I thought then, and I think now, that Adrian Zmed is icky. Yuck, nasty gross. My crush was on Michael. So when Statia secretly confessed that she likes Grease 2 as well, I sat here for a second wondering what else Adrian Zmed had been in...was it Solid Gold? No. Dance Fever? Yeah, that was it. [/end long and useless explanation]

So then Mr. Pollman tries to tell me that he never watched Solid Gold and Dance Fever as a kid. Yeahhhh...right. What child of the 70s didn't watch them? The Solid Gold Dancers, c'mon! Hello. (Sure they're nasty looking now, but apparently everything in the late 70s / early 80s was nasty and we were just too young to realize it.) Raise your hand if you believe him...

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I feel so much better now... I'm not alone in this world. I thought I was the only one who liked Grease 2 (for inexplicable reasons) and kept her secret hidden from the world!

I can't say that I've seen Grease 2, but Dude Where's My Car holds a special place in my heart as it was the first movie I saw with my girlfriend. I don't think there's anything wrong with "guilty pleasures" movies, sometimes you need a break from the seriousness of the world. My picks are usually the Die Hard series for some mind-numbing senseless violence, or to watch The Mask or Empire Records for the 700th time...

Adrian Zmed was also in "T.J. Hooker" with William Shatner and Heather Locklear.

I used to watch Solid Gold each week. I used to take my tape player and record the songs that would make the top 10 list. I was so pathetic.

Now who was your favorite host? Dionne Warwick, Rick Dees, or Marilyn McCoo? I like Rick Dees. I thought he was cool.

Ooooh, I have to go with "D. None of the above" Whistler, and pick Andy Gibb. I loved Rick Dees though! Disco. Disco Duck.

Did any of you guys ever watch "Puttin' On the Hits"? It was on between "Dance Fever" and "Solid Gold" where I was... priceless!

My husband loves "Dude wheres my car", I think he has every line memorized by now. Zultan!

Ok. I loved Xanadu. AND i was hopelessly addicted to "Puttin On the Hits" Never watched Solid Gold though-i may have been too young.

The Solid Gold Dancers! Damn, you went back with that one. They were kinda scary looking to me. After seeing that web site it's confirmed. It's funny; someone was asking me to name the host of Dance Fever (Denny Terrio) just the other day.

Guilty pleasure movie? Wow, I don't know. I love a lot of those kung fu drive-in movies that used to come on Saturday afternoons. It's too easy to say Showgirls so if I have to choose one it would be Under The Cherry Moon. I mean Graffiti Bridge is MUCH worst but it was during my "Prince is a musical genius" days. I actually know all the lines and every word to every song in the movie! Just wish it was out on DVD.

I want a girl who's smart, a girl who can teach me things. I hate stupid women. You know why? You marry a stupid girl, you have stupid kids. You don't believe me? Follow a stupid kid home and see if somebody stupid don't answer the door...
