Does anyone remember that heavy metal video show that looked like it was filmed in someone's basement? One guy wore a mask? There was a mom or something that was maybe the host, with a bunch of head bangers on a couch.

I am guessing it was on around '84?

Was it Metal Maniacs or am I confusing that with another channel 10 stand out?

Pretty sure Stampede Wrestling was longer than one hour. How else could they fit the opening Mr Jito vs Biff Wellington match that went to a draw basically every episode? There were always several filler matches with Karachi Vice interrupting, either in the middle of the match or between. That would usually be the first hour, then the main eventers would start. Maybe an hour was longer back then?

I don't think I missed very many episodes.

No, it was only an hour. They very often edited the matches for length and frequently didn't show more than the opening few seconds of the main events because they were too violent for Saturday afternoon tv (and to help sell tickets to the live shows).

Is that corner store at 3:01 the corner store in Inglewood on 9th ave and 13st SE? Google Streetview only goes back to 2009 after they redid the exterior, but once I saw that image in the video, it brought me back to my junior high days where my school bus stop was outside that store.

Correct. It is the old Blyth Hall.

I thought that was actually quite a poignant shot.

Mistakes were made.

Maybe you saw little baby Sliver being pushed around in his stroller that year. Maybe you even pinched his cheeks.

It was an SNL skit turned into two feature length films.
