UNCLE PETE SEARCHES THE CRYPT FOR MORE "THINGS"

UNCLE PETE SEARCHES THE CRYPT FOR MORE “THINGS”

We’ve noticed that sometimes life is about perspective.  So, this week UNCLE PETE will be closing one eye in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN to see stuff like one of the title characters in our feature presentation.  From 1961, it’s Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops.  It stars Mitchel Gordon (aka Gordon Mitchel) as Atlas who comes to the aid of a village whose populace is getting regularly chomped by a giant, one-eyed meanie in a nearby cave.  There’s also a lion, a bunch of guys with swords and an evil queen to round out our honest-to-goodness sword and sandal action picture.     Directed by Leonviola (all one word) and also featuring Chelo Alonso, Vira Silenti, Aldo Bufi Landi and Little Fabio (who would grow up to be on the covers of many romance novels and in margarine commercials) and with music from the Rome Philharmonic Orchestra it’s Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops.

Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE is getting deep – real deep – with Max and a few friends in the Dark Vault Crypt way beneath the Cinema Graveyard.  You can pick up the broadcast on your digital receivers as usual and you can always watch us in 3-D where available (with the Vito Gold 28K Gold 3-D Decoder(TM)), but special this week we’ll try broadcasting in 1-D (for those of you with the Vito Gold One-Dimensional Glasses (TM)) so you can see the movie just like you were an evil mythological creature with one big eye in the middle of your head!  So tune in this Saturday, July 26, 2014 on channel 4 around Binghamton, channel 99 around Elmira and Corning and channel 17 around Sayre from 10PM to midnight for Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

CLONE FACTORIES, GERMAN NIGHTCLUBS, AND A HARMONICA

UNCLE PETE VISITS THE CLONE FACTORY THIS WEEK

UNCLE PETE VISITS THE CLONE FACTORY THIS WEEK

The Dark Vault blowed up real good.  So did some of the Clones.  So this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN, UNCLE PETE and El Vato do some surveying, start some re-cloning and check out a happening night spot with The Phantom Of Soho.  You may know the Phantom who sang the classic Love Me, and you may know the Phantom from the comics who fights evil-doers in the jungle and around the world, and you may even know the Funky Phantom who helps solve mysteries, but you probably don’t want to know this Phantom Of Soho.  Chief Inspector Patton (Dieter Borsche) has been called in to investigate some nasty murders taking place near a seedy nightclub.  The Zanzibar Club is filled with knife throwers, exotical type dancers and frequented by ladies who work the night shift and tend to be very friendly.  It also seems to be a key part in the puzzle to solving the murders.  A German made film directed by F.J. Gotlieb and also starring Babara Rutting as Claudia and Stanislav Ledinek as Gilyard, the club manager, it’s the 1964 feature – Phantom Of Soho.

UNCLE PETE and El Vato are checking out the site of the former DARK VAULT.  But then, it’s off to the Clone Factory to start building up the DARK VAULT labor force for a little reconstruction.  So join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 17 (Sayre, PA) and channel 99 (Elmira/Corning/Hornell) for  a favorite movie of Cramps lead singer/founder Lux Interior, our feature presentation, Phantom Of Soho.  It’s Clones, murder, suspense, and even UNCLE PETE layin’ down a little ditty on the harmonica, on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

TOMMY RAMONE – R.I.P.

TOMMY RAMONE

TOMMY RAMONE

THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN mourns the death of the last of the original RAMONESTommy RamoneTommy passed away Friday, July 11, from cancer.  At least he was around for one more Uncle Pete Show before he checked out.  Cancer was also the cause of death for Joey and Johnny, so it seems that being a Ramone may be carcinogenic.  Tommy set the beat for the explosion of the Ramones on their first 3 albums and the double album – It’s Alive as well as helped produce The Ramones after he passed the sticks to Marky.  Our deepest sympathy and condolences go out to all Tommy’s family and friends.

The original line-up of the greatest Rock and Roll band ever is now gone.  But their music will live on, even in places where people don’t realize it.  Rest in peace, Tommy.  Ya done good while you were here!

CHAOS IN THE VAULT (AND EXPLOSIONS AND ALIENS TOO)!!!

ACTUAL FOOTAGE OF VAULT EXPLOSION STUFF (AND VITOLAND AMUSEMENT PARK(TM))!

SEE ACTUAL FOOTAGE OF VAULT EXPLOSION STUFF (AND VITOLAND AMUSEMENT PARK(TM))!

Was it some leftover fireworks and a stray match?  Or was it Aliens?!?!  Whatever the cause, one thing’s certain – there’s been an explosion in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.    But don’t worry, major explosions have never prevented the show from going on as UNCLE PETE (where ever he is) somehow manages to bring you a tale of juvenile delinquents from out thereTeenagers From Outer Space!

CHOPPED AND LOWERED - REAL GONE HOT ROD!

CHOPPED AND LOWERED – REAL GONE HOT ROD!

A way out space hot rod lands on earth filled with aliens looking for a planet suitable for raising their food – giant lobster-like creatures called gargons.  The aliens show their bad side (do they have any other side?) when they vaporize a happy dog to nothing but bones and license tag, from which we find out his name is Sparky.  Derek (David Love), one of the aliens, finds the tag and realizes that the planet is inhabited and raising gargons here will pose a hazard to the natives (namely us earthlings).  Thor (Bryan Grant) and the rest of the aliens don’t care, so Derek heads to town where he meets Betty Morgan (Dawn Anderson) and her Gramps (Harvey B. Dunn) and warns them of the impending doom.  When townsfolk start getting chomped by gargons, people start to investigate, including Betty’s sorta boyfriend before Derek showed up, Joe Rogers (Tom Lockyear).

The film was directed, written, and produced by Tom Graeff, who also happens to be Tom Lockyear of the cast.  From 1959, it’s Teenagers From Outer Space!

But that’s not all.  We have newsreel footage concerning the VAULT explosion and some investigations into who dunnit and where the heck is UNCLE PETE.  But wherever he is, he still manages to  also bring you an educational short from 1950 entitled Bicycle Safety and a DARK VAULT exclusive import from Canada or China (it’s hard to tell sometimes) called Cooking With Foreigners.  We also bring you some groovy trailers and a peak at the nation’s soon to be favorite vacation destination – VITOLAND PARK!  It’s not too late to plan your summer trip!

So tune in this Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 in the Binghamton area, channel 99 (Elmira/Corning/Hornell), and channel 17 (Sayre and around there in PA)  for Teenagers From Outer Space.  It’s the next feature presentation with UNCLE PETE (somewhere) on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
