You're Looking Happily Deranged
Let us take a short walk (getting longer by the day) back to the 90's and visit the insanely awesome and not nearly appreciated enough Nickelodeon show "The Adventures of Pete and Pete".
When it first started airing in 1993 I was a mere 10 years old and instantly hooked, it wasn't until I was a bit older though that I fully appreciated the innate radness of a show that featured among its recurring cast the likes of Micheal Stipe, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry and Steve Buscemi.
If you haven't had the privilege, the basic premise follows two ginger headed brothers Pete and Pete (and lil Petes Tattoo Petunia) as they traverse bravely and fool hardedly through life along side their hapless yet lovable neighbors, lady loves and family. Were those enough adjectives for you?
I'm pretty sure Artie (The Strongest Man...In the WORLD) was every ones favorite, I still kinda have a thing for him with his nerd glasses and ultra tight body suit, (rargh!)
Take a listen at the bitchinly 90's theme song, totally brings a tear to my eye...
Did anyone else watch and love Pete and Pete?
and in honor of Lil Pete's awesome lumberjack style...
