Happy Birthday Bunkessa!
Love, Poppa, Momma and Bunkarina (who’s gonna pound your butt next time you get into her stuff again).
I thought this was clever. [Found here.]
Can Head by the same guy who did the classic Potato Hunter.
[Found on Plate O’Shrimp… nice new find by our crack team of webminers.]
Easy Dub Allstars’ reggae version of Pink Floyd’s “Us and Them.” Nice riddim… [Tip ‘o the Tarboosh to “S&Dman” of Blogmocracy.]
And what is Halloween without Oingo Boingo? Danny Elfman’s band was tight and bizarre at the same time. In 1980 or so, G-off and Bunk sat next to them at Madame Wong’s, buying them rounds and vice versa, without knowing who they were. Great show.
If that’s not bad enough, you can listen to their “hit” here. Just remember, there are some things you can’t unhear.

[Update 5 December 2009: Good god. According to Strider, they had street cred in the UK. Lookee here.]
[Planetross found this garden wonder.]
[Update: Plane emailed me and said the title of the post should have read “So What Are You Gonna Be IN for Halloween.”
I responded with “The Little Halloweener.” Any other captions we missed?]

Here’s Soupy’s last Birthday Party.]
I remember playing this for minutes on end.

What do rural teenagers do when there’s no satellite access? This.
THE classic hobo song performed by Harry “Haywire” McClintock. According to the Wikipoids, the song dates to a 1928 sheet music copyright by one “Billy Mack.” Prior to the widespread availability of recorded discs, most of the money to be made was in selling sheet music for parlor pianos.
McClintock sued for copyright infringement and lost, yet the song is usually attributed to McClintock anyway.
We’re gonna skip the history of country music, bluegrass and blues, and jump right into Clarence Gatemouth Brown’s “Okie Dokie Stomp,” originally recorded in 1954. (Song starts after a brief interview.) Not impressed? Then check out “Pressure Cooker” previously posted here.
