Mr. T: Zina and Zina, for that exciting walk to the grocery store, here's Zina and Zina from San Bonadina. Thank you, Zina and Zina. And here's Marla, our subway sweetheart, taking the A-train to fashion in this graffiti inspired creation, with her mustard socks and ketchup sash, she's a real hot dog.

Life Changing
20 May 2004 | by davepweinsteinSee all my reviews

I discovered this film in High School. My folks were out of town, and my friends were at the house. I'm sure we were up to no good. Then it happened. Randy showed up with this video and said that we had to watch it. Growing up in the eighties, we all had a pre-existing place in our heart for Mr. T, so we were game. The tape started to roll, and then we started to roll. Man, it was the funniest thing I had ever seen. Being the creative bunch of musicians that we were, we decided to start a tribute band. What better name for the band than "Mr. T's Be Somebody Or Be Somebody's Fool"? So there it was, we learned all the songs from the movie, and went for it. We were pretty serious too. We would rehearse twice a week, and play shows regularly. We even had matching t-shirts made with the movie's poster on the front.

Those were some good times, inspired by a life changing film.

Thanks Mr. T! And remember: "Everyone's gotta wear clothes. If they don't, they could get arrested".
