The Jump Station presents Kasey and Company's My Neat Stuff
Deep in the basement of The
My Neat Stuff Hall of Fame, sits our neglected AV Department, home to
Harold Flywheel (nephew) and our fearless AV Club.
Affectionately referred to
as "The Rec Room" it is obnoxiously decorated and decked
out in piles of useless and outdated equipment. It's from this
location that our undaunted team of AV specialists and hangers on
search for neat retro images, vintage ads and audio visual gems and
bring them to you here, in random order, for your viewing and dining
pleasure. Scroll down or click the quick links above.
Presenting a random video from our Neat
Stuff AV Club Video Archive
The Nairobi Trio was a comedy skit that Ernie Kovacs performed many times for his TV shows. The skit was a live-action version of a child's animatronic wind-up music box. Always experimental, Kovacs combined several existing musical and comic concepts with impeccable timing for a unique and memorable result. The middle gorilla was always played by Kovacs with a cigar and conducted the musicians with either a baton or a banana. To the left stood a gorilla holding two oversized timpani mallets. This character was played by different actors including Jack Lemmon and Frank Sinatra. Seated at a piano was a female simian who robotically thumped her hands up and down on the keys. This part was variously played by Barbara Loden, Jolene Brand, and Kovacs's wife, Edie Adams.
Take a look below at some
Top Secret classified files from the Hall of Fame AV Department
Archives. Actually they are not classified at all... it's just a
collection of random Neat Stuff, Pop Culture photos and Retro
Advertising, and it's hardly Top Secret. They leave it out for
anybody to look at. Like you...
CLUB FILE ROOM - WALLPAPER DEPARTMENT
Wallpaper used to be just for your walls,
now its all rage to put it on your computer screen. Everyone is doing
it so we thought we would bend to peer pressure and jump on the
Now you can get wallpaper anywhere. In
fact you can't walk ten feet anywhere on the interweb
(metaphorically) without tripping over someone offering FREE Wallpaper.
But can those other places offer you
"neat" wallpaper? Maybe... probably... but we think ours is
especially "neat" and that's saying something.
CLUB FILE ROOM - PUZZLERDEPARTMENT
Do you like puzzles?
Darryl hates them. He gets frustrated when
he can't make the pieces fit and tips over everything onto the floor.
Well, thanks to the modern interweb our puzzles are now digital and
Darryl can't push the pieces onto the floor anymore.
Now he just hits the computer with a bat.
Maybe he shouldn't do puzzles but that doesn't mean you can't. Play a

CLUB FILE ROOM - GIVE-A-SHOWDEPARTMENT
There was a time when
you could only be subjected to people's boring slide shows by
physically visiting someone's home. Now thanks to the interwebs we
can see anyones slide show, any time, anywhere! Oh the humanity!
With that in mind Doug
and Brenda have taken photos from our AC Club files and made some
fascinating (their words) slide shows. These slide shows can be found
on our Hall of Fame exhibit and Tiviaography pages. We have inserted
a random slide show below so can see what all the fuss is about.
Full disclosure, Doug
and Brenda have included some of their vacation slides in the mix. If
you stumble across one of those make an excuse and get out while you can.
