This Is The Too Hot to Post Post

Sunday, 11 October 2015 by

90+ degrees in the shade today, and I was too distracted to put together something semi-original, so here’s this. Lo siento mis amigos.

Delores Del Rio

The Latintones.  Grupera mex-chicano de los 60’s 70’s de Tejas starts it off, and the rest of the collection is pretty cool as well.

Saturday Matinee – Ленинград, Les McCann w/ Eddie Harris, Alvin Lee & Ten Years After

Russian Ska/Punk/Dixieland Band Leningrad features a woman with bigger choppers than Carly Simon. No idea what they’re singing about, but I like the sound.

BTW, Vladimir Putin can go to hell and take the KGB and Pravda with him. [Related post here.]

1969 jazz classic by pianist Les McCann and saxophonist Eddie Harris has staying power. The music was great and the lyrics are relevant today, but with a different meaning.

I was at a stop light recently and a 1970 convertible Mustang pulled up cranking some awesome.
I hollered at the graybeard, “WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?
He yelled back, “ALVIN LEE!

Ten Years After, recorded live: 4 August 1975 – Winterland (San Francisco, CA).

Have a great weekend, folks, we’ll be back tomorrow despite the heat and the traffic.

No White People Withers

Photo by Ernest Withers, Overpark Zoo, Memphis, Tennessee, 1950’s.

I don’t recall having seen that particular image, but once I tracked down the source, it blew me away. Withers was not only a prolific photographer of the 50’s and 60’s, he captured some of the most iconic images of of his time. Check it out.

Planetary Pencil Pointer 1

Planetary Pencil Pointer 2

With a cast iron frame designed to be screwed down to the desktop, this machine eliminated the need for whittling and sanding pencils, and saved businesses countless hours in lost productivity.

It’s called a “Planetary Pencil Sharpener” because it relies on planetary gears revolving around a sun gear, and all are held in place with a ring gear.

Spirograph worked on the same basic principal, but it sure as hell couldn’t sharpen a pencil.
