Robin Williams bounced into the homes of millions of viewers in the 1970s with Mork and Mindy, and in its second season the show made a huge ratings play with “Mork vs. the Necrotons,” an hour long special that featured Raquel Welch as Captain Nirvana. The off the wall episode centers around Nirvana and her alien fiends trying to kidnap Mork so they could torture him - it’s wild. The marketing behind this episode was heavily focused on the babalicious Welch’s appearance with a tagline that read: 

“Raquel Welch stars as the sultry space spy who wants More… real bad.”

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
