Bizarre News was started by some guy working on his computer at home all the way back in 1997 or 1998. We recruited Bizarre News to be a part of our catalog of email newsletters and it soon became one of our biggest publications on Gophercentral.com.
On March 1st, after 25 weird and wild years, we wrapped up its historic run. Hopefully you we one of our many readers that got to appreciate the laughs as much as we appreciated the bizarre events and occurrences that happened each and every day. For past issue visit the Bizarre News Archives.
Of course a little over a month later we discovered a video, from a VHS Tape no less, that featured Joe, editor of Bizarre News, on the syndicated talk show, Sally Jessy Raphael. He was there to share the “Top 5 Bizarre News Stories” we had reported at the time.
It’s so much fun to look back at this video and marvel at the technology, the fashions, the hairstyles, and what we considered bizarre back then.
And we thought those that are going through Bizarre News withdrawal would get a real kick of this video time capsule. So without further ado… roll it!
And for news, recipes, laughs, and entertainment, we’ve got all the content you want. Head to Gophercentral.com today and subscribe to our numerous newsletters for FREE!
It may be the streaming age, but physical media is becoming the thing to own to make sure that you can enjoy all of the entertainment that you love again and again.
Books, CDs, records, tapes, DVDs, even Blu-Rays are all forms of media that are being abandoned for tablets, smartphones, and other devices. The convenience of gaining access to, purchasing, and enjoy an endless supply of entertainment is quite enticing, but come on, you don’t really own that media…think of it more as a rental. What happens if a server goes down, your account gets hacked, or you can’t gain access to your accounts? You have to re-purchase the media that you had acquired in the past. What a pain!
And with so many streaming services buying up titles left and right some of your favorite shows, films, and special programs, are getting snatched up and put in a vault – and may not be available through streaming – maybe not ever again! WHAT!?
Now is the time to stock up on DVDs, Blu-Rays, and CDs before some of your favorites become unavailable for the foreseeable future. Here are a few titles that we currently have that could possibly disappear… (Don’t Wait… Get Them While You Can!)
The Honeymooners was such a popular series and lasted so long in re-runs, that most people don’t realize it only had 1 regular season in 1955-56. All of the other sketches and so-called ‘episodes’ were filmed either for the Cavalcade of Stars which Gleason hosted, or later for The Jackie Gleason Show.
Because it wasn’t part of the regular season, all of that comedy history was hidden for decades, until Gleason finally opened his personal collection and revealed The Lost Episodes. Now you can get a selection of the best of those lost sketches in the Best of The Honeymooners: The Lost Episodes DVD.
Not only are these rare gems television history, even 65 years later the humor, timing and chemistry of the characters is as engaging and infatuating as it ever was. You’ll fall in love with misguided but well meaning Ralph all over again as he fumbles his way through his daily adventures.
So join Jackie, along with his co-stars Art Carney, Audrey Meadows and Joyce Randolph for a look back at THE show that literally started the TV sitcom!

The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection stars Basil Rathbone as the legendary Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as the venerable Dr. John H. Watson in 14 classic films on 5 Blu-ray discs!
Twelve of these classic tales were painstakingly restored to their original theatrical condition by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. By combining old and new film elements, new 35mm masters were created to emulate the appearance and audio quality of a first-run motion picture. These restored versions also include war bond tags and the Universal Pictures logos that were removed from the original elements in the 1950s.
The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection is comprised of all 14 films on 5 Blu-ray discs. Bonus features include six audio commentaries (including a “Dressed to Kill” commentary with actress Patricia Morison); and interview with Robert Gitt, Preservation Officer at the UCLA Film & Television Archive; footage of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; photo galleries; and theatrical trailers.

The Chilly Hat is a personal favorite of mine and was truly a lifesaver on a canoe trip I took recently. The wide UV Reflective brim protected me from the sun’s harmful rays and was able to shield my entire face and neck from sunburns throughout the duration of the trip. I was extremely thankful for the evaporative and hyper-absorbent inner liner that would keep me ice cold for hours canoeing in the hot sun. Simply wet, wring, and shake to activate its cooling properties. It kept me cool and relaxed all weekend, and plus, it looks great on both men and women.

With the streaming age upon us physical media is becoming a thing of the past.
Books, CDs, records, tapes, DVDs, even Blu-Rays are all forms of media that are being abandoned for tablets, smartphones, and other devices.
The convenience of gaining access to, purchasing, and enjoy an endless supply of entertainment is quite enticing, but come on, you don’t really own that media…think of it more as a rental. What happens if a server goes down, your account gets hacked, or you can’t gain access to your accounts? You have to re-purchase the media that you had acquired in the past. What a pain!
Now, I do appreciate what streaming and handheld devices do, but physical media is where it’s at! With physical media you always have the desired movie, show, song, or book ever accessible. No buffering. No low battery. No incorrect passwords. You can put on a movie or show, flip open a book, or spin a record and enjoy without having to rely on a paid service to let you enjoy these forms of entertainment.
Now with Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox they have announced that many of the Fox titles are getting put in a vault and will not be available through streaming. WHAT!?
