Accidents Happen

Break out the body casts! The world’s most painfully funny stuntman is back with a powder-keg of laughs! Super Dave Osborne (Bob Einstein) gives a crash course in comedy in this wacky adventure of daredevil antics, whiplash humor and crash-test love!

After a near-fatal accident, Super Dave hangs up his crash pads to operate his own theme park and coach a promising young stuntman. But as The Super One soon discovers, he’s been bankrupted by his swindling manager, betrayed by his new young protégé, and foreclosed by the bank. Devastated and almost ready to accept defeat, Super Dave finds strength in a klutzy-but-cute single mom (Gia Carides) and her ailing young son, Timmy. And when he learns that Timmy needs an expensive heart operation, Super Dave shuns retirement to raise the needed money — even if it means doing his most death-defying stunt yet! Facing off against the protégé who deceived him and his arch enemy, a slimy sports promoter (Dan Hedaya, Dick), Dave must once again prove to the world that he’s not only the most outrageous daredevil… he’s also the most accident-prone!

Super Dave is totally explosive in this blazing comedy of hair-rasing stunts, brutally funny crashes and humor that packs a punch. The Extreme Adventures Of Super Dave will break every funny bone in your body!

From the VHS box:

In the future, death is only the beginning.

In the tradition of such science fiction classics as “Blade Runner” and “Escape From New York” comes a terrifying vision of a future unlike any seen before.

When John Wade (Rutger Hauer) tries to smuggle fantasy chips for the city’s cyberjunkies, he is betrayed by his partner, Merrick (Mark Dacascos), and killed. Authorities resurrect him with bio-synthetic cyber-implants to interrogate him regarding the TROIKA, a crime syndicate that counts Merrick as a member.

Once alive, Wade escapes and begins an intensive search for Merrick in the underworld of the future — seedy cyber-slums and sex-dens to exact revenge on the traitor in a blaze of gunfire. After dodging assassins and scavenger bounty hunters, Wade realizes that in this world, he can trust no one.

Traditional Music Classics on VHS. Featuring Doc Watson, Roscoe Holcomb, Buell Kazee, Kilby Snow. 1997.

From the VHS box:

Few areas have been as expansive with their treasures of traditional song as the Appalachians. The isolated small towns, villages and hollows in the section running from Virginia through North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee is nearly unsurpassed as a repository of old-time music and ballads reaching back to the time of settlement. Traditional Music Classics presents rare archival performances by four legends of traditional music from this region.

Doc Watson was born into a musical family with a repertoire of old time songs and ballads. His father taught him how to play the five string banjo when he was young, and Doc later taught himself guitar and mandolin. His warm appealing vocals and consummate flat picking have earned him a wide following and helped expand the appeal of traditional Southern music. He is joined by Fred Price (fiddle) and Clint Howard (guitar), neighboring Tennessee farmers from musical families who joined Doc after the death of Clarence “Tom” Ashley, the musician with whom they commenced playing college concerts in the 1960s. Includes Maggie Walker Blues, Traveling Man, Lee Highway Blues, St. James Hospital, and more.

The musical style of Roscoe Holcomb, the banjo/guitar player from Hazard, Kentucky, represents the collective heritage of local musicians, combined with his Baptist upbringing and exposure to the blues. The intensity he brings to traditional performance illustrates the uncompromising musical attack that led Eric Clapton to call him “his favorite country musician.” Includes Free Little Bird, Fair Miss in the Garden, Graveyard Blues and more.

Buell Kazee was an exceptional singer and superb traditional banjoist from Kentucky who recorded over 50 songs in the 1920s, many of them ancient ballads. He later became an ordained minister and continued to collect traditional mountain music. Includes The Orphan girl, John Hardy and more.

John Kilby Snow was an outstanding autoharpist who was virtually unknown until discovered by Mike Seeger, who was responsible for bringing him to a wider audience in the 1960s. Kilby mastered an unusual signature technique of playing the autoharp, strumming left-handed below the chord bars and utilizing what he called “drag notes,” which he demonstrates in this video. Accompanied by Mike Seeger, Kilby plays Ragged But right, Greenback Dollar, Pretty Polly, What A Friend We Have In Jesus and more.

Brad and Janet are in trouble again!

The people who brought us The Rocky Horror Picture Show are at it again. Brad and Janet are trapped in a town where all the world in one huge TV sound stage.

This no-holds-barred spoof of TV and television audiences is garishly entertaining fun and frolic from beginning to end. So put on your little black dress and get set for kinky comedy and shocking suspense, without having to stand on line at midnight!

Is Connie Gomper the Ultimate Packers Fan? You Betcha!

After a lifetime of loyalty to the greatest football team in the world, Green Bay legend Connie Gomper has realized her lifelong ambition of becoming the nation’s best know Packer Backer!

On this, her first video, Connie proudly shows photos of her family with the Packers… gossips about the Packers at the beauty parlor… and takes you behind the scenes (into her garage actually) where she tapes her local Cable TV show “Gomper Gab with Connie.”

Educational? Yah, by golly! “Connie Gomper and the Pack” features Connie’s history of the team from “Bart to Brett,” with rare archival newsreel clips, exclusive NFL Films action footage, and special appearances by Coach Holmgren, Brett Favre, Aaron Taylor, Gilbert Brown, and record-setting receiver Robert Brooks who serenades Connie with his original song “Jump in the Stands.” Connie also introduces you to such fellow fanatics as Mel and Leonne Knocke, who have missed less than a dozen Packers games since 1929, and Steve Gay, whose 1966 Dodge motorhome, the “Big G,” is a Green Bay icon! All-in-all, Connie’s created the only video on earth that’s more fun than a Sunday afternoon in Green Bay!

From the VHS box:

Your every fear — all in one deadly enemy.

It can be anything. A fanged monster that won’t stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King.

Based on the King Of Horror’s 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but It is not clowning around. Instead, It terrifies youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing some to their untimely doom — until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later the evil resurfaces: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate stand against It.
