In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Hasselhoff's Latest

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

I'm not entirely sure that the Master has succeeded in sustaining the inspiration level he showed in his immortal version of "Hooked on a Feeling." But not even Tolstoy was able to crank out nothing but masterpieces. And, if for nothing other than raw ego and shamelessness, Hoff's version of "Secret Agent Man" merits applause -- as well as close critical study.

You can buy the original song (and more) here. Did you know that Johnny Rivers was born John Ramistella?

Dude, don't tell me that isn't high camp. It's not "Hooked on a Feeling" but I predict that this video too will achieve cult status.

BTW, am I imagining it or is that a belch at around 00:20?
