Once again we take a stroll down the eighties amnesia lane. Our featured babe is none other than Martha Quinn, stepdaughter of finance guru Jane Bryant Quinn and the first, and IMHO, the greatest, of the MTV video jockeys. Best quality: that slightly twisted way about her that screams "head case!" that men find so attractive at first, then later so annoying. Post-MTV: short-lived film career in such movies as Chopper Chicks in Zombietown. Last seen with Max Headroom at a gathering of the charter group of the Eighties Preservation Society.

And let's not forget she was the subject of Mojo Nixon's "Stuffin' Martha's Muffin."

Don't forget she married Bobby Brady in that sad, sad program "The Bradys..."

Had a HUGE crush on "the mighty" Martha Quinn. Back in the days when MTV actually played videos, she was a breath of fresh air - really down-to-ear. Kind of like the girl you were really good friends with in high school, but never thought to ask out until it was too late and she already had a boyfriend. A nice contrast to the space-cadet Nina Blackwood - who always seemed like she just smoked a big fatty.

Amazing. Martha Quinn and Max Headroom, in the space of one brief post. Remind me to never, ever play "Trivial Pursuit: the Eighties Edition" with you.
