For those of you that think the late 1960’s was all hippies and beads and tie-dye and bell bottoms and pot, check this out:

The Dickies covered “Nobody Like Me” in 1983, George Thorogood covered it in 1982, and it was covered by the Human Beinz in 1967. It was originally recorded in 1962 by the Isley Brothers. from Blue Ash, Ohio,  as if you didn’t know.

But there’s some unfortunate misinformation in that vid: “Teen Time” was really filmed in Steubenville, Ohio, not P-burgh. Just like at Diary of Daedalus, we fact check everything, no matter how trivial, on The Overnight Open Thread.

Odd. I’m kind of out of words for this one, as it is pretty much self-explanatory, but here’s a fun fact. Remember “Rover” from the great TV series “The Prisoner?” Yep, that’s him in his first film role — barely 20 at the time.

Of course his most memorable role came 11 years later. Patrick McGoohan and Rover were roommates/fellow pub-crawlers when McGoohan suggested that he try for the part, and the rest is history.

That’s just one more piece of the big trivia puzzle known as The Overnight Open Thread.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents – one of the best anthology series ever!
This 1958 episode directed by Hitchcock himself, “Lamb to the Slaughter” is  classic.
