Webskulker (under his Mark Bernay alias) was interviewed for this show and was supposed to be on the air, but the producer decided not to use that footage. Damn. Ms. Cat was looking forward to seeing her master on TV and better yet, she could bat flies away from the screen.
Nevertheless WebSkulker played a part in the show in that he introduced the producer to a couple of phreaks and he loaned the studio some antiques that were filmed for the show. WebSkulker hasn't seen it, but there is supposed to be a scene in which the phreak Cap'n Crunch and others blow into a red Cap'n Crunch whistle. That whistle, along with the 1971 Esquire magazine and a lot of other newspaper and magazine clippings you will see in the show, came from us.
Our 5/25/00 issue mentioned a web site as "the greatest telephone network information page ever published in this newsletter". Unfortunately that site started charging a sizable subscription fee that the average jr. skulker will not want to pay. WebSkulker asked around and skulked around and came up with the above three sites that are still free and that give similar information about telephone companies and switches. The first was contributed by Jr. Skulker Robert and the second by Randy.
How would you like to place a wiretap on the phone line of a mob leader and listen in whenever you want? You can't quite do this yourself, but you can listen to many hours of material recorded in 1985-86 from an FBI tap of mobster Federico 'Fritzy' Giovanelli, a Genovese crime family soldier. "The tapes do not contain the sort of reckless chatter that sent John Gotti away for life, they're remarkable for the funny, profane, and whimsical conversations Fritzy had with his Mafia cohorts, namely Frank 'Frankie California' Condo, a fellow Genovese soldier. Like two old hens, Frank and Fritzy would gab daily about life's rich pageant, their conversations a stream-of-consciousness potpourri. While most men their age were out working, the duo would convene on the telephone in the early afternoon -- both speaking from their homes -- and launch into wildly veering conversations. A typical 15-minute chat could touch on sex, work, girlfriends, vitamins, movies, enlarged hearts, cholesterol counts, and marital strife. Peppered with malaprops and featuring Frank and Fritzy's Central Casting voices, the tapes are a raucous, slice-of-life look at two hoodlums."
The WMOB site calls itself the wiretap network, and they arrange these tapes like a soap opera with weekly episodes: the Frank and Fritzy Show. You can read a transcript of these conversations and listen to them in RealAudio. Click on the link above, choose an episode, and you will get the transcript. Click on "CLICK HERE TO LISTEN" at the upper-left to get the audio.
Cliff Yablonski (whoever he is) hates everyone. People send him weird pictures of themselves and their friends. Cliff posts a selection of these every two weeks with great comments about why he hates each and every one. He has 175 pages of these so far (with numbered links at the left) and they are all hilarious. Ms. Cat likes the hateful cat pictures mixed in.
WebSkulker sometimes gets into weird moods and comes up with weird ideas. This weird page is the result of one of these, and features Jr. Skulkers Al Bernay and his sidekick Franky T. WebSkulker submitted these pictures to Cliff Yablonski to see what happens.
Speaking of weird pictures, Jr. Skulker Randy Solton suggests this page that purports to be serious, but is probably a hoax. As the page says, WARNING: HORRIFIC PHOTOS ... NOT FOR VIEWING BY CHILDREN OR ANYONE WITH A WEAK STOMACH.
