Screengrabs from the television show DOUBLE TROUBLE
PART 2 OF 2
Oh the eighties, what a decade, and what a wasted opportunity!
I truly believe, there were more drugs and debauchery during the eighties, than in all the twenties, thirties, sixties, and seventies combined!

Anyway, I was older, and so were the twins.
This time the ladies were real life twins Jean and Liz Sagal.
I remember watching them on a crappy television show called DOUBLE TROUBLE.
I was nuts about them!
And yes, I know they're Katey Sagal's sisters.

I also remember seeing them in a few tv commercials, and other tv shows.
Apparently, they're both still working in the biz.
Jean has appeared in many tv shows. She's also directed a lot of episodes for shows like, JUST SHOOT ME!, TWO AND A HALF MEN, and 2 BROKE GIRLS.
Meanwhile, Liz was a writer and producer on SONS OF ANARCHY. She's also written for many other tv shows. Plus, she's also appeared in theatrical films and a bunch of tv shows.
I've never been able to find entire episodes of DOUBLE TROUBLE online, just clips.
I had every episode of DOUBLE TROUBLE on several VHS tapes. But, they've long disappeared.
The show has never been released on region one DVD, or in any other region ( as far as I know ).

Screengrabs above are from the movie WHISKY & VODKA
PART 1 OF 2
Once upon a time, I was a mere tater-tot with big potato dreams.... One of those dreams was to marry twins.
"Hey, that's NOT legal!".... Thanks for reminding me! What are you going to do next?... Tell me the Easter bunny, and leprechauns, aren't real?! Gee-whiz!... Thanks a lot, ya fuckin' party-pooper!
It was the late sixties and early seventies, and anything was possible. So, when I saw some twins in a movie called WHISKY & VODKA, I flipped-out.
Above is a newspaper clipping about WHISKY & VODKA... from San Jose Costa Rica ( Feb. 8 1967 ).
WHISKY & VODKA starred real life twins Aurora and Pilar Bayona ( Mili and Pili ).
The story involves a mix-up of two unrelated young ladies that look identical.
They're both daughters of diplomats ( one American and one Soviet ). This results in confusion, and wackiness.
Above is a newspaper ad for WHISKY & VODKA... from Victoria Texas U.S.A. ( March 15, 1968 ).
As I watched them, I knew, I wanted to do more than just play MONOPOLY with them... ha-ha-ha.
Above is a newspaper tv listing from Miami Florida U.S.A. ( Feb. 3, 1973 ).
I've been told the twins are both alive and well ( I can NOT confirm this information ).
The mysterious and cute ice-skater... During one scene a cute lady skates and falls. I didn't know who she was, and after all this time, I still don't know. Her character is NOT listed on the IMDB.
Recently, I found WHISKY & VODKA on VHS, but the tape was shredded. Plus, I think it may have been a bootleg.
I haven't been able to find a region one DVD for this movie, and I don't know which company distributed it in theaters, or for television.
The entire movie was online, but was taken down for "Copyright infringement". Hopefully, it will be uploaded again by someone else.....

Above is a print ad for LAS VEGAS GIRLS ( Spokane Washington U.S.A. - July 2, 1983 )
According to the IMDB this movie was directed by Carlos Tobalina ( 1925 - 1989 ). I don't know if he also wrote it.
It stars, Karen Hall, Dan Boulder, Jesse Ronald, and Liz Renay ( 1926 - 2007 ).
Liz Renay is the only cast member I'm familiar with.
I saw this movie on VHS back in the eighties, but I don't remember anything about it.
I also don't remember if the tape was legit.
LAS VEGAS GIRLS has been released at least two times on DVD. Once by ALPHA BLUE ARCHIVES ( as part of a triple feature ), and another time by VINEGAR SYNDROME ( as part of a double feature ).

The above photo was MODIFIED by yours truly..... NONE of this nation's tribes gave Trump permission to come here, so deport his ARROGANT and USELESS ass back to Europe or North Africa, whichever is appropriate!
"SOMEBODY'S DOING THE RAPING".....
Don't get me started on how this PUSSY-BIGOT-COWARD AVOIDED SERVING IN VIETNAM.
TRUMP has NO right to take the moral high ground on any subject.
Anyway, as I've said before, it's TWO-LEGGED-SACKS-OF-SHIT like him, that are doing the raping and GETTING AWAY with it.
QUOTES below are from MIRROR.CO.UK ( 30 July 2015 )
"Donald Trump's lawyer apologises for saying it's 'legal to rape your wife'"
"The Republican presidential front-runner was accused of rape by former wife Ivana Trump in 1990"
"Trump's lawyer made furious threats against reporters who resurfaced the allegations"
Just for the record, I think Ivana Trump is just as fucked-up as he is.
Above is the cover of NEW YORK magazine ( July 27 - August 9, 2015 issue ) on left, and cover of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS on the right ( July 27, 2015 ).
BEWARE OF STRANGERS OFFERING QUAALUDE FLAVORED PUD-DIN-POPS!.....
Want a QUAALUDE flavored PUD-DIN-POP?!... Oh come on, it'll be a funky adventure!
Screengrabs of Bill Cosby in an old JELL-O television commercial... I wonder what he's thinking of, as he hands her that pudding pop.
QUOTES below from the EMPIRE NEWS.NET website ( Dec. 3, 2014 )
"Kraft Foods, maker of JELLO Pudding Pops, wants to distance itself as far away as possible from entertainer Bill Cosby"
“The shape and color of some of our Pudding Pops have taken on negative associations through no fault of our own,”
“We don’t want people to think of Bill Cosby when they put a Pudding Pop into their mouths, or the mouths of their children"
I can't stop laughing when I read those quotes.
Screengrab of Jon Stewart on his last show
Mr. Stewart said goodbye on August 6, 2015.
He's smart, clever, and hilarious... I will miss him.
Just for the record, I do NOT have cable, but I watch clips of his show online for free. Plus, his last episode was also online for free ( at the official DAILY SHOW website ).
Screengrabs from Mr. Stewart's last show.
One of my favorite lines of his last show ( in regards to BULLSHIT from our beloved government )... "IF YOU SMELL SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING".....
This has been a public service announcement..... We now return you to our regularly scheduled program.....
