LOL FERRET: EPISODE 1

lol-ferret-snake

Although Bosley the Ferret passed away years ago, he still produces smiles. First posted on 8 November 2007, Bosley has staying power with a score of 1/2/2 and over 44,580 hits, despite the fact that I didn’t know there was an established protocol for posting “Lol” memes at the time (hence the font and non-meme-correct “LolSpeak”).

Thanks for all your visits and favorites, and I wish you all the best,

Saturday Matinee – Rock Rock Rock, Rockabilly & R.L. Burnside

Saturday, 1 August 2015

Rock Rock Rock” was the first video tape I ever purchased. Got it for $9.99 in a sale bin, then I saved up for a VCR player so that I could watch it. Classic performances by classic rockers wrapped around an unbelievably crappy story. It’s 90 minutes of fast-fowarding awesome (but I suggest you follow the plot at least once).

Rockabilly LA. Considering that Los Angeles had just about nothing to do with the advent of Rockabilly except to lure the hayseeds into fraudulent recording contracts, we’ll post it anyway.

So where do we go from here? How ’bout some vintage country ‘lectra blues?

That’s R.L. Burnside from 1978. Let’s go one more. This one’s from 1998.

That should hold y’all for a while. Have a great weekend, folks.

Saturday Matinee – All Your Bass Are Belong To Us

Saturday, 25 July 2015

Postmodern Jukebox‘s “All About That Bass” has just the right amount of slink with a cool bass stunt.

There’s some serious funkslappin going on in Marcus Miller‘s 2008 jam version of Tower of Power‘s 1973 hit “What Is Hip.”

This 6-string bass street jammer’s pretty good, too.

We’ve posted Willie Dixon‘s classic “Bassology” before, and it’s a good wrap up for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks.
