Goin' Out West

Adam West is an American genius.

Channel 33 used to show doubled-up episodes of Gilligan's Island and the Adam West Batman series. The one-two punch of the comedy stylings of Bob Denver followed by the Overactors Anonymous scene-grabbing of Adam West? I was so there. Needless to say, my bum was parked for two hours every afternoon while I thought about maybe trying to start thinking about starting to do my homework.

Which brings up an interesting sidebar: How did I end up graduating from high school? I don't remember doing anything for those four years. Must have been my good looks and boyish charm that got me through. Or the $20 bills I'd paperclip to my book reports/science projects/geometry homework. Or the fact that I wore nothing but tube tops and hot pants for my entire high-school career and would often be seen "flashing some leg" at my female teachers? Aaaah, who cares, right? I gradgiated. That's what's important.

Back on track now... the old-school Channel 33 holds a special place in my heart (check the love for His Royal Darkness, Count Cool Rider over on Mostly Funny), right next to 103.5 - the Edge, Cafe' Espresso Roma and KUNV when it played music that didn't belong solely in elevators. Ahh, nostalgia. Why do you smell like polyester and old D.I. couches?
