Gliddy Gloop Gloopy is not Hang On, Sloopy

I love the intro to this, and no–I never saw Hair. Do any of you have any memories of this old song?

The Higher The Hair, The Closer To Jesus

However, Blinda’s Leaning Tower of Pisa is probably closer in proximity to The Pope. She’s certainly giving Deb a run for her money.

Teasing was involved on both of these Mary(s), and it appears as though a hairpiece or extension was haphazardly lobbed at their heads, with no regard for rhyme nor reason.

Donnita’s lithe neck can barely support the combined weight of coif and hardened Aqua Net.  Any minute now, it could snap like a twig.

I don’t know what to say about Kathy.  All I know is she’s in this yearbook twice.  Same name, same pic, so it’s no misprint, people.  Kathy with a K.  Moving on…

Bless her heart.

From the saucy smirks of the Nix Twins to Dennis’s kind eyes (which seem more 48 than 18 years old), to the barrel of whiskey hidden beneath the teased bleached locks of Regina, this pic does not disappoint.

I hate it when people say they gave 110% effort, because there is no such thing as more than the absolute total that exists.  Having said that, Linda gave 110%.  Have you ever seen a waterfall after a hard freeze?

Clearly they try harder.

But Travis.  Sigh.  Travis Isom, Travis Eyesore, old boy–what were you thinking with that unibrow? Read the page; Seniors Try Harder!  You should try harder with some tweezers.  Or a razor.  This is unacceptable, Travis.  Shame on you.  Why couldn’t you have copied the simple brows of J.C. and Mike (who BTW, look pretty retro 50s greaser for a 1967 yearbook, if you ask me)?

And the winner of the most interesting hairdo is…Beverly’s ratty flattened mess, complimented by insanely dark arched caterpillar brows!  You can bet David wouldn’t touch her with a ten foot pole!  She smells like cigarettes and Binaca breath spray, and that scares the pee out of him.  Does someone have a ladder so we can climb up there and crown her?

Fill ‘Er Up

A new Fort Worth Premier gas station opening in 1962 depicts great customer service for all your Chevy Impala’s needs. A sister photo reflects the steep price of gas at just over a quarter per gallon.

And check it out: Buy 8 gallons of gas and for only a dollar extra, you get five place settings of fine imported silverware–enough to invite all three attendants in straw hats, as well as the two girls in modest swimwear, heels, and mod flips.

Everybody Cut Footloose

Except you, awkward white people.  You need to stop.

The fine print says “Get free dance booklet at your Career Club dealer.”  To those of you in your sixties (who were alive in the 60s), is that where you learned your dance moves?  Your Career Club dealer?  I bet your drug dealer could teach better moves.  Stiff and forced, Milton practically begs for a bottle of Schlitz to loosen him up–his hand is already in position.  Why, in ten minutes, he could be a poor man’s Davy Jones!  I don’t recall ever seeing “the skate” performed on American Bandstand, and I can pretty well rest assured it was never on Soul Train.  It looks less like skating and more like “festive ways to fart.”
