What Gets Me Hot!


WATCH "Dog Police" - Memphis' Strangest Song/Video (Where are you comin' from? Nobody knows who you are!)

I thought this clip was lost for eternity.

I'm forever grateful and thank you for this gem. - this puppy is from Memphis, Tennessee - the old Shoe Productions - I was there!

this is indeterminately from Memphis. some of this band can still be seen in Memphis playing locally, the lead singer is actually a drummer... but i still think this video is awesome but I'm bias cause I'm known the singer my whole life!


Please give Memphis and these Memphis boys credit. Anyone that lives and plays music knows how little of that we do get!

Shoe Productions 485 Hollywood, Memphis.

These guys were crazy so we signed them and did the video.

We also did Disco Duck (Rick Dees).

Musicians that hung out: Duck Dunn, Willie Hall & Steve Cropper - (Blues Brothers). They were Booker T and the MG's-played/co-wrote "Mustang Sally", "Hold on I'm Coming" and 100's of hits in the 60/70's.

Also: Lou Rawls, Dr, John, Paul Butterfield, Jimmy Griffin (Bread) & many more.

I'm in LA now but have loving memories of those days at Shoe in Memphis.

So was that William H Macy on the keyboard and vocorder?

Never heard of William Macy.

Tony Thomas was on keyboard - Sam Shoup on Bass and Tom Lonardo sang and also plays just about everything.

Again - from Memphis, TN.

Recorded for Shoe Productions at Shoe Studios in about 1982-83.

There actually is an entire album of satirical songs called simply "Dog Police".

I still have an unopened 33 rpm. Thanks for responding so fast.

OH the days of the small studio before I thought I would make a career of this insanity loll. Duke Street, Vancouver, Canada was my Shoe Productions.

HOLY SHIT. Thank you. I only half-remembered ever seeing this ONCE, and I never found ANY information on it anywhere, so I'd started to convince myself I'd imagined it and it never really existed.

Thank you for this! Although it's creepier than I remember it.
I've been trying to explain this video to people for about 1,000 years. Thank you for confirming the fact that my brain did not make this song and video up.

The keyboard player looks like William H. Macy.

My god. It's like Hurra Torpedo, Devo and Blue Öyster Cult got together for a side project.

THIS is my YouTube account. We all know that furriers are flapping it to the dog-girl in this video.

HOLY CRAP!! I have not seen this video since 198-freakin'-4!

I actually came to think that I had just imagined the whole thing.

Thank you for providing me with proof that I was not nearly as deranged as I thought I was! i just shat myself in fear I remember "1 800" also. I thought I was the only one in the world who remembered this video?

IIRC, it took 2nd. place behind RAIL in the MTV Video Contest back in like 1982?


she was a cat no you are in fact quite wrong my friend. I didn't watch this video since '82, 24 years ago and I was 13!!!

It makes me remind La Máquina del Rock in Lima city, Perú.

Thanks! i do member this.. but i still don't get it i do like the drug fragrance though they said they were the ART BARF FAR ARR

This was the video that SHOULD have won the "MTV's Basement Tapes" contest back in about 1982.

It is so crazy and imaginative! Instead, some heavy metal group made up of 10 year olds won. GAG... how "cute." It was such a rip-off. This video is a classic! But it came in second place. That has made me mad for all these years. Hopefully these artists have had success elsewhere.

The band was honestly called: "The Dog Police!" The band they lost to was called Trak. I remember them because they were featured in LIFE magazine's edition on teenagers in 1984.

Google them and the name Derita, because Trak was like a Leif Garrett butt-gawk Partridge Family.

I can't find a thing on them. Digney Fignus and Guadalcanal Diary also had entries that year. Dog Police was ROBBED, I tells ya. I totally agree!

DP were robbed! The basement tapes were voted in by callers - the band that won had their entire community on the phone that night hitting the redial button. hen this video first came out and MTV was cool, a bunch of us single bachelors had this as our theme song. Woof Woof Woof...were they think-in? glad i was born when DA 80s was nearly over.

reminds me of fat weird cartoon cop dog "scruff gruff" 'take a bite out of crime' now we just need someone to post the video for "1-800."

Oh man, I never forgot this video,

I can't believe I got to see it again.

I can die happy now. Totally fucked up, but happy. Truly amazing. MTV used to be so ahead of its time. Basement tapes are YouTube Music 24 years before YouTube ever happened.

Dog Police forever!

Nobody knows who we are! HOLY SHIT, 20 bloody be damned years i've been looking for this video

No shit. I saw this way back in the day and used to tell everyone about it and could never find it. This kicks my uncles ass.  actually cut (edited) this song and produced the video and hes in it when the dog police are walking in the bar hes the one dancing all crazy on the far left wow cool!

I've totally giggled at him a million times. he actually did a lot of stuff back then he was a camera man for the Mikey mouse club and he did all the audio for hustle and flow and he is currently working on black snake moan fortunately the departments he work in don't make him fa-mouse Are you talking about Andy? Yes I know Andy & Linda very well.

Tell him "Wags" said hello. No the work that we stagehands do carries no fame or solaces but quite often, at the end of the day, we end up making more than the performers and, ask your uncle, WE ARE GOD. If I don't like you one little turn of a dial can make your audience not like you tee gee.

All you Dog Police fans will be pleased to know Andrew Sullivan linked to this.

OH MY GOD! I can't believe it! I've been looking for this for years. GOD BLESS YOU! I was starting to think I made this up in my head. Dear god.

I suspected that I'd imagined this for years because I saw it as a tyke and when I tried to explain it to people they would do little but blankly stare at me. I've had the chorus of this song running through my head since 1983. me too. ;) that makes 3 of us. That makes 4 of us. These guys are now playing with The Jumpiness Chi Chi's That is the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my life. Just straight up weirdness. For reals Is this supposed to make women feel badly about themselves?

Like the theme of this is 'have a poor self-image' I think. Like you're so ugly you should be arrested. I've been looking all over for an mp3 of this song. Can anyone help me out? i have an MP3 of this song give me your Email and i will send it to you it'd LOVE AN mp3 OF THIS TOO....BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS VIDEO FOR OVER 20 YEARS NOW

I actually finally roistered YouTube just so I could echo all the sentiments posted...I thought it was a figment of my imagination also. I'm also glad to see some people remember 1-800 also. The singer looked like a babushka with a corncob planted. Fay and lame. Was there another video from the 80's that has people wearing dog faces? I swear I vaguely remember another video (other than dog police) that involved people dressed like dogs singing.

If someone knows what I'm talking about, please tell what the song was called.

this video actually WON 1st prize in an MTV contest for unsigned bands. they were supposed to get a record contract out of the deal,which they probably did, but were then just told to forget it. At the time, everybody was shocked to see that they had won compared to more serious entries. But it was a people's vote that put it there, so go figure.

Try not to take it too seriously. it's more at home on Dr. Memento or something. i saw that once back in the 80's and never thought it'd see that again. thanks for posting! i remember that... so trash so cool!!

I never realized how much this sounded like Devo!

I remember it.

Dog Police, where are you comin' from? Dog Police, Nobody knows who you are!

This also played on Night Flight, where I first recorded it. MTV (Mars candy company TV....those that were there will remember the Quincy Jones war against MTV's biggest advertiser, MARS, because they weren't playing enough Michael Jackson and it was ALL downhill from there)sucked only marginally less than it does now (except for Al TV). thanks for the video! The hubby pretty much thought I was retarded for singing about the Dog Police (he had never heard of them)...now he just pretty much thinks I'm retarded.

yo solo se qe si no entiendes lo qe dizen esto es una mierda pintxada en un palo seko.  Saluted.

I remember watching this on USA's Night Flight - way back in the day.

Thanks for posting!

It came close to winning MTV's "Basement Tapes" contest, but it didn't win.

Digney Fignus won.

His video is posted on YouTube. Just search for his name and you'll find, "The Girl With the Curious Hand."

Very 80s song, too, but "better"

The Wikipedia page for dog police is in trouble. everyone who remembers and loves this song should go and save it. and the Friday night Video fights, remember them?

OH YES! The phone numbers were 1-900-720-1501 and 1502 :D

they are from Memphis, tn though and the lead singer in the song is actually a drummer for the  chi chis and Diane price and her boyfriends

Wow, this video is barktastic!!!!

woolly este video lo vi ache mas de 20 largos años...q Buenos q lo postseason :)

Oh that is funny! What isn't funny was a had a date like that in real life and kept looking over my shoulder for the Dog Police....unfortunately, they didn't show. But I don`t want to watch stupid houd police! I want to watch my scary scary cartoon from Japan, NO!

fuuuuuuunnnnnnnyyyyyyyy. where has that munchkin come out in b4?? looks like horns-waggle... This was my FAVORITE...with She Wont French Kiss. This was entered in a video contest MTV had. I voted for it!!! These were/are definitely from Memphis, TN.

They actually were in a jazz group called the Tony Thomas Trio and did this as a lark. Keyboard player is Tony (yellow outfit) Bass player is Sam Shoup. Don't remember the singers name. I wonder whatever happened with this poor woman. Is she still curled in the corner of a lonely room somewhere, crying, "Dog police, dogwood poliiiiice. . ."

I only WATCHED this abomination, and I want to cry. I too think that that is Bill Macy. Bill Macy is a pretty unique looking guy for it not to be him.


Can someone tell me that this is NOT Hugh Laurie from "House"!!!!

Lead Singer? I'm almost certain that is NOT Hugh Laurie from House. He's British first of all, and played in all of the Black Adders with Rowan Atkinson at this age. This is the worst song I've ever heard!:)

Is the keyboard player not William H. Macy? Or am I loosing my mind? We've got a 2 out of 3 vote here and the third has no idea who Bill Macy is.

Dog Police Rules!! I saw them at their sold-out show at the Forum. Wow!!!! Yeah! Basement Tapes should a-beers! Man, Trek were so lame compared to these guys (though my fave Basement Tapes contenders were easily the Nelsons from Bullock, TX). I can't believe that I remember this, but wasn't the name of the Nelsons entry called "I Don't Mind"? WTF! woof if you like this crap you be got rabies and should be shot. wait till Rosenberg and ga2lic get you guys are fucked.i think i just shit myself. The lead singer looks like a white Ray Monday with a fake beard and raven-chevalier is right about the Gilliam h Macy thing as well. Was this a fake band? OK.... let me see if my info fits in : Dog Police is actually the name of the band and this single. The song was their ONLY "semi" hit .... I believe this band was from Memphis Tn .... and you gotta realize this was the 80s - you could get away with almost ANYTHING ..... ( Remember Boy George ???? .... Exactly ) For so many years, this video was like the mythical holy grail. And now, it's back in my life. The ENTIRE reason for the Internet's existence is finally clear. aha this is great. my aunt knew the guy in the pink in college. these guys are from Memphis, tn who had a vived imagination. they lived in midtown Memphis...go figure. does anyone know where i can find this in a MP3? I didn't have cable way back then but I remember it from the local TV stations in Memphis playing the video over and over again after it won the contest. Me and all the other kids were barking up and down the hallways at school for weeks! It was a sickness. Strange, in my memory it was a much better song. take that stairway to heaven~! Got flea dip? Oh My God! Just for the hell of it, I put Dog Police in the search engine, and here it is!!holy crap, i saw this with my sister once when it came out and we about died laughing. you know how it is in high school. pretty awful in retrospect but the chorus has stayed in my head all these years despite every attempt to flush it out. Martha Quinn on MTV first introduced this campy classic in the summer of 1984 during its amateur video week. I remember catching these guys on their world stadium tour in the early 80s. They played for 2 hours and still couldn't fit in all their hits. But what a show. If I beat her, would I get cited for animal abuse and assault? So is her perfume urine scented? Also why is that bitch being arrested? He's the one trying to fuck a dog... They're arresting her for the crime of being a dog. But they're dogs. So, um, yeah.

Shes a cat stupid -.2:09 2:16 -

why did those two have puppies??

I don't know, i didn't even see any puppies :P

he mentions how he should have noticed her milk bones and her affinity for whizzing on tires.

I remember this video. Back around 82 or so, MTV had a show called The Basement Tapes, which was basically a "battle of the unsigned bands" type show. You had to call a 900 number (cost ya 50 cents) to vote for which song you wanted to win.

I believe Dog Police was one of the other Basement Tapes winners?

I recall there was one band that had a song with the chorus "1-2-3-4 What are we living for? ROCK N ROLL!" loll at the disgust on the faces of the other memberships from 2:09 inwards 2:16.

You know, who let the dogs out will remember this.


39 Reasons to Watch "Masked and Anonymous" by Larry Charles and Bob Dylan

1. These self-conscious cameos do nothing but take viewers out of the world Charles and his team have so ingeniously created  as do the inside jokes and Dylan quotes that pepper the cross-talk and background scenery.

2. He's made a film that  for all of its references to his discography and career  winds up being as elliptical as its elusive star.

3. And Cheech Marin and Christian Slater and Giovanni Ribisi!

4. Occasionally Fate and his musicians break into the tight  lyrical renditions of the endless repertoire they've been performing of late  giving viewers and fans respite from the talky  hyperactive goings-on backstage.

5. What Masked and Anonymous is about is something of a mystery  although religion  politics  sex  war and the wages of fame might be a start.

6. With his vintage country-western suit  his odd  shuffling trot and Clifton Webb mustache  he's still a timeless and transfixing performer  whether he's uttering one in a series of gnomic pronouncements or engaging in the punning  cornball humor that he favors in his stage patter.

7. A worthy work of art or an inside-Hollywood vanity production more along the lines of It's a Mad  Mad  Mad  Mad World?

8. Primarily  it's about Bob Dylan who  as in his past screen appearances  isn't an actor here as much as a presence.

9. Voice of a generation or Victoria's Secret shill?

10. Which also happens to be the appropriate response to so many questions about the film's star  muse and driving creative force.

11. In an indeterminate future  the country is in the throes of a corrupt revolution that itself is in the midst of an anxious transition.

12. Christian or Jew?

13. It's here that Charles  a longtime TV director making his feature debut  seems to lose control of the production; with its cardinal themes of race and cultural history and its densely layered plots and characters  you can't help wondering what Masked and Anonymous would have become in the hands of  say  John Sayles.

14. Most happily  he meets up with a Jack Fate cover band -- called  what else  Simple Twist of Fate -- which comprises the prodigious real-life musicians Dylan has been touring with in recent years: Tony Garnier  George Receli  Larry Campbell and Charlie Sexton.

15. What  exactly  is Masked and Anonymous?

16. That distance isn't helped by the purposely dense script  which is at once overburdened by endless self-important chatter and a pervading sense of ennui.

17. If Masked and Anonymous is a vanity production  that's not necessarily a problem -- Dylan fans are always grateful for the chance to pin their protean idol to the velvet for a closer look.

18. As Fate prepares for his performance  he crosses paths with all manner of desperadoes  hucksters  true friends and one Tom Friend (Jeff Bridges)  a journalist whose inane questions and prying insinuations might have been modeled on the subject of Dylan's Ballad of a Thin Man.

19. Is Bob Dylan a prophet or a seeker?

20. The woman in charge of broadcasting the concert on television is a high-strung producer named Nina Veronica (Jessica Lange)  a direct descendant of Faye Dunaway's character in Network  whose hobbies are smoking and busting men in the nether regions.

21. Does he want to spurn those who still look to him for answers after four decades?

22. A biting social satire or a wrenching apocalyptic allegory?
23. Poet or showman?
24. And practically every shard of what we have thought of as the artist formerly known as Robert Zimmerman is on hand in Masked and Anonymous  a fascinating  vexing  indulgent  visionary  pretentious  mesmerizing pop culture curio.
25. Or is he still expecting us to ask?
26. And Charles and his design team have created a stunning  vivid vision of post-apocalyptic Los Angeles  which has become a ragtag palimpsest of languages  cultures  races and shifting power groups.
27. As the film's final scene suggests  the answer  my friend  is -- well  you know.
28. And Angela Bassett and Bruce Dern and Chris Penn!
29. What's distracting and irritating about the production is the endless parade of actors who show up even for the briefest of appearances; Penelope Cruz and Luke Wilson are on hand in supporting roles  but look -- there's Val Kilmer and Ed Harris and Mickey Rourke!
30. Fans hoping that Masked and Anonymous will be the Rosetta stone for Dylan's most enigmatic musings will most likely be disappointed.
31. Law has broken down  morality has disintegrated  people are on edge. (Particularly fabulous are the foreign-language covers of Dylan classics that compose the soundtrack  from a Japanese version of My Back Pages to a Turkish singer performing One More Cup of Coffee.)  Directed with uneven success by Larry Charles from an incomprehensible script that he wrote with Dylan  Masked and Anonymous is a kaleidoscopic journey through America on the eve of destruction  a multi-culti  postmodern  polyglot bazaar of greed  venality  violence and dispossession.
32. It's all of the above.
33. This being America  it's the perfect time to put on a show.
34. ad_icon Enter Jack Fate (Dylan)  a once-legendary singer who's just been released from a Mexican jail and whose sleazy manager  Uncle Sweetheart (John Goodman)  has arranged for him to headline a benefit concert for a worthy cause mostly having to do with Uncle Sweetheart's deals.
35. He is  or has been  all of those things  of course.
36. An oracle or a cipher-like screen for his audience's deepest projections?
37. A brilliant evocation of Americana or the solipsistic complaint of a disillusioned artist?
38. An elusive  press-shy artist or a genius of self-mythology?
39. Layered both visually and aurally with the vestiges of a still-recognizable past  Masked and Anonymous has a peculiarly anarchic energy and authenticity.


Big Wong Soy Sauce Chicken

Big Wong Soy Sauce Chicken


Soy sauce chicken over rice
Soy Sauce Chicken to go, $5
soy sauce chicken - so good

    We have been coming here for over 8 years and they recognize us and are super nice *  ( most of the times )  :)
    Loooooove this place . For all the haters .. this is a quintessential NYC Cantonese fast eats restaurant .
    You are not going to get white tablecloth service with waiters/ waitresses monitoring your table every second. The locals come in .. gulp/ slurp food down like speedy Gonzales and off they go.
    Quote Serious Eats ' A cheap and speedy Chinatown classic for roast meats and thick hearty congee.' I wholeheartedly agree with this review summary!
    I would say they excel with their BBQ meat over rice selection. Order any of those and you can't go wrong.  They have succulent roast duck , roast bbq pork , soy sauce chicken ... combo plates ..
    We also love the steamed vegetables with oyster sauce .. prawn glutinous rice rolls ( called ' cheong fun')
    If you are very hungry .. get some congee and a fried ' you Tiao ' to dip it in.
    ' You Tiao ' is like a unsweetened doughnut . Super crispy and delicious dipped in thick congee.
    My only major gripe with Big Wong's  is I'm pretty sure they put MSG in their food as after I eat my tongue instantly becomes tingly and my salivary glands go into overdrive . However if you don't have a sensitivity to MSG go check this place out !

    We hope to come here for years to come with our children's children!

    Super nice * in a Chinatown nyc restaurant means : nodding when they see you, hurriedly seating you , shouting out your order , chucking it on the table

Ate here twice when I was in NYC. We ordered char siu, soy sauce chicken, choy sum, among other things. Their char siu is the best. The other stuff we ordered was okay. I would come back to try other dishes. The service was okay. Servers were straight forward. They will not be friendly nor rude. Other Chinese patrons may be rude to you if you are being slow. Or they may generally just be rude to you. Cleanliness wise, the place seemed okay. FYI: do not use their restrooms. They were not dirty or anything horrible. However, you have to go down a very narrow stairway and it is next to the kitchen. There were multiple stalls, but the doors to the restrooms are wide open.

So this restaurant is kind of an institution for Chinatown. I've been coming here since I was a little kid. They have authentic Cantonese food. The roast pork, roast duck, soy sauce chicken, and ribs are featured in their window and 99% of the time they're all really good. They also have really good congee (rice porridge). If you're in Chinatown for breakfast or lunch, especially during the winter, I'd recommend this. Get a yao tiao (dough stick) with it. Alternatively, their wonton soup is not bad either. They also have a dish of two lobsters in a scallion ginger sauce. It's a tasty Cantonese preparation of lobster if you like lobster. I'm only rating it 4 stars because while the food is usually really good, the restaurant could use an update. It's a bit too old school. They haven't change anything for at least 20 years which is both a good and bad thing. At least update the bathroom

If you're looking for the best Roast Duck, I think I found an amazing place.  We've ordered at least 5 ducks at this point and we are only beginning.  

When you first walk in, you see the roast duck, Soy sauce chicken and steamed chicken all hanging there and it's clear, it's one of their specialties.  There were at least 20+ hanging there and a line of people ordering. Each time I've gone there, I'm worried they will run out just as it's my turn to order but fortunately, they keep coming out with more fresh roasted ducks and chicken.  

This last time I went, I ordered more than the duck.  I ordered the congee and the Chinese donut and I can tell you, I'm so glad I did.  The congee was perfect with the perfect amount of pork, intestines and liver.  The Chinese donut was fresh and fluffy and the perfect compliment to my congee.  

I will be back to further explore their menu.  Everything that I've tried has been phenomenal, I can't wait for the next adventure.

The best gritty Chinatown BBQ spot!

Come here for their staples:

Soy sauce chicken: marinated in soy the chicken has a great savory flavor that pairs well with white rice. Your typical Hong Kong staple food!

Roasted duck: my dads absolute favorite. He will always eat this everytime he comes here and swears by it. I love the smoky flavor the duck has and it's juicy meat.

Roasted pork: another Hong Kong staple bbqed and marinated well to give it a great sweet savory smoky flavor.

BBQ spare ribs: one of my favorites in addition to the soy sauce chicken, tender ribs, savory to perfection, and pairs well with the soy sauce chicken.

We come here every week. It's a no frills place. Affordable and a great meal!

I come here pretty often because it's cheap, good food and fast!!
My favorites to get here are roast pork rice crepe, soy sauce chicken over rice, fried cruller, congee, and duck. Recently, I started buying the whole duck (uncut) and bought buns from local supermarket and made my own Peking Duck! I found out it's so much cheaper to make it yourself than to ORDER the peking duck from the menu. I think the whole duck was like $28 and it lasts several meals. The fried cruller I like to bring home and make steamed eggs with it.

All of their food is always fresh and tastes delicious! They haven't let me down. They got their ordering system down pat and your food is ready in a few minutes. I love coming back here over and over again!

I've had this bookmarked for ages for Cantonese food, and Port L. suggested it as a family meal for their roast pork. One of my favorite things about eating with my family is the sheer amount of food we're able to try - which was a really good thing here because the roast pork was pretty disappointing. :( We didn't have any problems walking in with a party of 6 on a Saturday night.

Before I get to the food, a minor note: a waiter overheard my parents speaking in a different dialect, and he spoke to them in the same dialect. Apparently my dad asked him what was good and the waiter said "I don't want to lie to you, so I'm not going to say anything. The food's okay. This place caters towards Americans. " LOL. That said ... my brother and I are kinda americanized. :p

+ dou miao - We didn't see this on the menu, but Raymond ordered it in Mandarin (snow pea shoots). They were the same quality that I've had them everywhere else.

+ eggplant with beef (149) - This was a surprising hit. I've never had eggplant with beef, and the eggplant was the perfect texture - soft but still firm. The beef was a bit too salty but was good tempered with the eggplant. I would definitely recommend this.

+ char siu - Aw man, this was so sad. I was really excited that it was warm, but once I chewed and swallowed it, I realized that it was super lean and just ... average. Apparently it wasn't as good as usual.

+ soy sauce chicken - Not sure what this is called on the menu because my mom randomly ordered it, but I thought this was also a hit. It's a cold dish, but the chicken is flavorful and tender, and the soy sauce on it was the perfect complement.

+ shrimp with candied walnuts - LOL we're so americanized ... :( but Port and I LOVE this dish. The shrimp was crunchy and huge, and the candied walnuts were addictive. Solid.

+ beef noodle soup (49) - or is it 46? Either way, we meant to order the eggplant with beef and Port said the wrong number because he misheard. So we didn't mean to get this, but it ended up being pretty good! I wasn't in a noodle mood, though, and it was a bit hard to share.

+ chow mein with beef - I love this type of noodle, and this dish was well-done overall. Can't go wrong!

Overall, we had some misses but a few dishes that we loved - so I'd say I'm a fan! I would definitely come back for some tasty cheap eats.

For old school Chinatown eats, it doesn't get older than Big Wong. I remember when they had their Grand Opening when I was a kid. It hasn't changed much over the years, but I think they had a renovation some time ago. Even so, the wallpaper and lighting are showing their age. When you walk in, you're hustled quickly to a table and if you're only 1 or 2 people, you'll likely be sharing a table with 1-2 others.

Despite this, Big Wong still has (arguably) the best roast duck and roast pork in the City. Their menu is mainly quick lunch dishes such as wonton noodles, meat over rice dishes and congee catering to locals that have to grab a quick lunch. Their kitchen is geared towards quick preparation but they will heat up the wok and crank out a Cantonese style twin lobster if you like.

When I sit down, I'll usually go with a bowl of Wonton Noodle soup with either Beef Stew or Roast Duck on a cold winter day. Or maybe a steaming bowl of pork and thousand year egg congee. In the summer, I might go for a triple treasure over rice (soy sauce chicken, roast pork & fried egg). Whatever you order, it comes out quick and you'll be full at a reasonable price.

This is a list of notable noodle dishes - 星洲炒米 is my favorite

I Sold Helena Christensen (THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD) this Lamar Sorrento Painting of Chuck Berry (then spent all night until the morning on a couch in their French Quarter bungalow, while Michael Hutchence and INXS did babania upstairs

after Lamar Sorrento decided that it might be good for a New Orleans art gallery to handle his work (i talked him into it at his cool junk shop in Memphis), he began sending boucoups paintings to 526 Royal St. and even Alan Boudreaux grew to like them--i was still relatively new as a director there.

So this was one of the greatest days of my life.

we had more movie stars, rock stars, writers, artists go through that gallery than even the french quarter contained, but when THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD walked in behind her junkie boyfriend (RIP), Michael Hutchence 1960 - 1997, i was literally star and lovestruck--if you're too young to know Helena Christensen, it's your problem.

when they, with INXS in tow, strolled the african art to the outsider art, i was right behind her, and there i would be, low-pressuring her Peruvian-Danish-self until they decided on this low-numbered Lamar of Chuck Berry.

to make a great story short, i went to the gig with laminates and helped them with stuff etc.

i watched the show with Helena from the side and then was invited to a bungalow in the upper-quarter, where they were all staying--a big place with a tropical garden and banana plants out back.

mike and his band made a beeline upstairs to do what they did, and h. and i sat on a comfortable antique couch with the french doors open, drank wine, and talked about what, i don't remember.

she was wearing Eden and a robe.

thanks again, Lamar. and also AJ and House of Blues New Orleans, which eventually made Lamar the curmudgeon he is today; and even though you're famous now, you'll never be more famous than that night.

i sent you an extra commish right away.

WATCH The Strange Story of Traci Lords, X-Citement Video and the United States Supreme Court (w/ the weirdest powerpoint video i've ever seen)

United States v. X-Citement Video, Inc., 513 U.S. 64 (1994) was a federal criminal prosecution filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California in Los Angeles against X-Citement Video and its owner Rubin Gottesman.

The charge was trafficking in child pornography, specifically videos featuring the underage Traci Lords.

Gottesman had been sentenced to one year in jail and a $100,000 fine. The defense challenged the constitutionality of certain sections of the federal laws against child pornography, claiming they were unconstitutionally vague.

United States vs. X-Citement Video, Inc

"What Gets Me Hot!", "Splash", "Talk Dirty to Me III"

In 1986, federal authorities discovered that actress Traci Lords had made pornographic movies while she was underage. This incident formed the basis of several actions against people working in the pornography industry.

Rubin Gottesman owned X-Citement Video. In June 1986 he was visited by Los Angeles Police Officer Steven Takeshita and FBI Agent Nellie Magdaloyo. They posed as pornography retailers who wanted to buy videos from him. They made several more visits that year, culminating in Gottesman sending Traci Lords videos to Hawaii in early 1987. In the course of the investigation, they witnessed Gottesman giving acknowledgement of prior knowledge that Lords was underage during the making of those movies.

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling

The Ninth Circuit ruled that the sections in the Protection of Children Against Sexual Exploitation Act of 1977 dealing with the interstate transportation of underage pornography is unconstitutional. Part of the relevant provision states:
(a) Any person who: (1) knowingly transports or ships in interstate or foreign commerce by any means, including by computer or mails, any visual depiction, if
(A) the producing of such visual depiction involves the use of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct and
(B) such visual depiction is of such conduct;
shall be punished as provided in subsection (b) of this section.
The defense asserted that the word "knowingly" in section (1), judging from the grammar, did not extend to the conduct described in subsection (A) or (B).
If interpreted this way, the result would be that anybody buying or selling movies without knowing their content might be held criminally liable. This was the basis for the Ninth Circuit Court finding the law in violation of the First Amendment.

Supreme Court

The decision was appealed to the United States Supreme Court. With a majority of 7-2, they ruled to reverse the decision of the Ninth Circuit and uphold the criminal conviction.
They explained that if a law can be interpreted in a way that is constitutional, then that interpretation must be used rather than declaring the law unconstitutional. In effect, they made the word "knowingly" extend to the other clauses.
Justice Antonin Scalia filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justice Clarence Thomas joined. In Scalia's dissent, he acknowledged this rule but only in cases where the new interpretation does not need an ungrammatical reading of the statute.
Gottesman was incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Worth, Texas. Gottesman was released June 27, 1997.
