I recently came across the recent issue of Ciudad magazine. I thought it was kind of cool. It's telling us that the rude boy/ mod fashion is back. So when did it leave?

The Untouchables in Repo Man

I think this is when I first thought Rude Boys were so awesome.
We used to watch the taped-off TV version of Repo Man as kids. We idolized punk rock, but these scooter guys(The Untouchables) were the only thing I thought was cooler than the punkers in this movie. They were all 60's sharp and yet tall and intimidating when they walked into this shot. You knew that Otto was toast.
Well, whatever you might think of the Untouchables today, they were very important to the American mod/ska scene. Yes there is a big 80's cheese factor, but The Untouchables were seminal. I kinda thought that it was like Jerry Dammers passing the torch when I found out that he produced I SPY(FOR THE FBI). I understand the Untouchables were also California's first scooter club. Much respect, live and let dance.

"It's very simple, Mrs. Parks. You don't want me to take it, and I don't want to. I said to my boss: Look, I don't want to repossess this lady's car."

"How was rehearsal, son?" -------- "Okay. Who's this?"

"This is Mr. Otto, deary. From the finance company. He told me he isn't going to take the car this time, even though he could."

"Well...gotta get going."

(from inside) "...I'm tired of giving you money, and you squandering it. You all went out dancing somewhere!" (Otto revs her car and we find it's up on jacks)

"Hey, everything's cool! I like music too, man!" (Biff! Bang! Pow!!)

The Revillos (AKA the Rezillos)

I've been listening to the Rezillos a lot lately, but it wasn't 'til I checked out my friend Cornelieus Danger's blog that I've seen this video. They're so good!
Here's a little known trivia tidbit: The Bodysnatchers Rhoda Dakar was hailed as being, "Ruder Than You" because of her boss beehive-boof. But she joined the Bodysnatchers with her hair that way because she was a Rezillos fan.
Anyhow, digit.

Yep, the rumors are true.

I have decided to totally uproot myself & my family from "totally rippin'" Orange County, California in exchange for the quiet life of rural Pennsylvania. The big date is August 22nd. We're going to be living with my brother-in-law in Elizabethtown, PA until we can find a permanant residence nearby (not to mention employment). It's a small town just ten miles south of Hershey (YES!!) and an hour and a half south-west of Philedelphia. I'm going to learn the ropes of being an east-coaster. It should be quite interesting.

I don't imagine myself ever moving back to California, but I'm sure we'll come to visit once a year or so if we can make it.

so... yeah.
