VITO GOLD INTRODUCES THE MANDATED SAFETY PROGRAM

It’s Memorial Day Weekend – the unofficial start of summer, the official start of the week that comes several weeks before the start of summer, and a time when lots and lots of people travel, bar-b-cue, and do all manner of outdoorsy things.  What a perfect time to check out some good ol’ safety and common sense practices that can help keep you from getting all busted up or in jail or like that.   Especially when certain federal regulations require VITO GOLD, mastermind of  the VITO GOLD ENTERPRISES (TM), to let us know about this kind of stuff.

VITOBOT (TM) – YOUR HOST FOR THE EVENING

So, join UNCLE PETE and El Vato as part of the enthusiastic audience in the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN as we bring you the VITO GOLD Safety Special.  Hosted by our hi-tech, hi-octane little buddy VITOBOT (TM), it’s two hours of informative, educational, and entertaining safety shorts from the 60s and 70s to let you know about what to do in a variety of daily entanglements.  We start off with a spooky scary short on bus riding safety called Ghost Rider.  Then, it’s I Like Bikes – a little how to on how not to trade paint with bikes when you’re driving a car.  Next we learn how the pent-up stress of daily life can cause even a cartoon to wind up in jail in Mr. Finley’s Feelings and we visit the age-old battle of good versus evil and cavities in The Munchers.

THE ENTHUSIASTIC AUDIENCE – EAGER TO LEARN

Ever think about your self-image? El Vato doesn’t have one.  But these kids learn about their’s in If Mirrors Could Speak.  A dog learns about tolerance and gettin’ along in Skipper Learns A Lesson (a story line we also find in one of our favorite episodes of Davey and Goliath).  Then it’s a for real super hero facing one of the deadliest adversaries around in Soapy The Germ Fighter.  Next a topic near and dear to VITOBOT (TM) and UNCLE PETE and all of us here in the VAULT – Beer!  It’s A Case For Beer about not selling beer to minors cuz then those of us with real IDs won’t be able to buy beer there anymore either.  Finally it’s Coughs And Sneezes, about, well, coughs and sneezes.  And it’s all presented in newly remastered and enhanced DARK VAULT Definition!

Being brought to you by VITO GOLD ENTERPRISES (TM), of course the show is also chock full of great VITO GOLD products advertisements, each and every one a classic and showcasing something that you needs to buy.  So join VITO GOLD, UNCLE PETE, El Vato and VITOBOT this Saturday night, May 28, 2016,  at 10PM (with replays at midnight and 2 AM) on Binghamton’s channel 4, channel 99 in Elmira/Hornell/Corning and Utica/Rome and channel 17 in Montrose/Sayre, PA.  It’s The VITO GOLD Safety Special to kick off your Memorial Day Weekend for the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!  (And take a moment or two to remember all those Americans who gave their lives while serving in the armed forces to help make this country and things like The Dark Vault of Public Domain possible.  After all, that’s really what Memorial Day is about!)

UNCLE PETE FIRES UP THE SPECTRAL DISEMBOBULATOR (tm) FOR A NIGHT OF MUSIC, MONSTERS, AND MAYHEM!

UNCLE PETE FIRES UP THE SPECTRAL DISEMBOBULATOR ™ FOR A NIGHT OF MUSIC, MONSTERS, AND MAYHEM!

Get your boards waxed up and your dancing shoes shined and join UNCLE PETE this week for a music filled surfin’ monster fest on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!  First up is a jukebox full of UNCLE PETE’S Music Picks with many never before seen music videos from China, Japan, Canada, and the good ol’ USA.  He’ll bring you rockabilly, punk, and flat out classics from the likes of Johnny Cash, D.O.A., and many others including a world premier music video from the Bastards Of Imperialism whose lead singer wrote the theme song for THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN (as performed by The Nation Of Salami).

Then it’s down to the beach for lots of surfin’, dancin. and eatin’ (mostly of the surfers and dancers) in The Beach Girls And The Monster.  Famed oceanographer (that’s like a fish doctor) Dr. Otto Lindsay (John Hall) is married to his research and also younger and good lookin’ Vicky (Sue Casey).  Vicky is upset with the Doctor’s lack of attention to her.  The Doctor’s upset with his son Richard (Arnold Lessing) who has given up on science for surfing.  And the beach monster is upset because he’s hungry.  So he does something about it, namely eating beach goers.  The doctor feels the monster is a giant mutated carnivorous South American fish that can now come out of the water to chow down.  But does the monster have a work visa or even a passport???  With direction and cinematography also from Jon Hall, music by the Illusions, and a theme song (Dance Baby Dance) written by Frank Sinatra Jr., from 1965, it’s The Beach Girls And The Monster.

UNCLE PETE is well situated in the Dark Vault Control Room where he not only computerizes up some spiffy music videos but a whole big clump of trailers and some great commercials including spots for the Tiger and Swingin’ Cat Electric Guitars and the Big Bash drum by Emenee (Jumpin’ Jiminy! It’s By Emenee!).  So tune in this Saturday night, May 21, 2016, from 10PM to midnight (with replays at midnight and 2 AM) on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 17 in the Montrose/Sayre, PA area, and channel 99 for Corning/Hornell/Elmira and Utica/ Rome (and soon to be seen in the whole north country of New York State.  It’s UNCLE PETE’S Music Picks and The Beach Girls And The Monster on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

(And welcome to all our brand new viewers on Beta Max TV channel on Roku who will see Abby Saturday night at 10PM with a replay Tuesday, May 24 at 7PM.)

EL VATO DELIVERS A DOUBLE DOSE OF CINEMA TO UNCLE PETE

EL VATO DELIVERS A DOUBLE DOSE OF CINEMA TO UNCLE PETE

Break out your sandals and your anti-surveillance devices for a trip to the monster infested past and the oppressive totalitarian future this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  Join UNCLE PETE for a movie double-header featuring the sword and sandal epic Hercules And The Princess OF Troy and a tale of the future gone awry, 1984 (well, at least it was the future when the story was written).

In the first feature, the people of Troy must make a monthly delivery of one maiden to a nasty sea monster that will otherwise destroy the city in lieu of payment.  Some citizens decide to relocate, only to be captured by pirates.  Hercules (Gordon Scott) feels this whole situation could use a little improvin’ so he steps in to help out.  Also starring Gordon Mitchell (from Little Rita  and Atlas In The Land Of the Cyclops as seen on The DVOPD), Roger Browne (from War Of The Robots), and Diana Hyland, it’s Enzo Barboni’s 1965 epic Hercules And The Princess Of Troy.  The second feature is a television adaptation of George Orwell’s story of a futuristic society that practices mind control, constant widespread surveillance, and ovesees all aspects of all citizens daily life – 1984.  A production of the Westinghouse Studio One program in 1953, it features an all-star cast including Eddie Albert, Lorne Greene, and Robert Culp.

While UNCLE PETE sorts things out in front of the Dark Vault View Screen, he manages to dig up a clothing ad featuring Moe, Larry, and Curly Joe and a trailer for a big screen version of 1984 (from 1984).  Plus, we hope you have good toes in your sandals cuz we’re all gonna Tip-toe Through The Tulips during a musical interlude from the one and only ukelele playin’ Tiny Tim.

So fire up those TVs and join UNCLE PETE and the DARK VAULT gang this Saturday night, May 14, 2016, from 10PM to midnight (with replays at midnight and 2AM) on Binghamton’s channel 4, channel 17 in Sayre/Montrose and channel 99 in Hornell/Elmira/Corning and Utica/Rome.  It’s a double feature spanning eons with Hercules and The Princess OF Troy and 1984 this week on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!  (And check back right here this coming week for some exciting news about a brand new world-wide outlet for THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN coming to a computer near you next weekend!)
