How to make a leatherbound journal and then throw it into the fireplace.

On Monday 25 January 2016 Awesome happened. Bob Newhart called in to the Tim Conway Jr. show on KFIAM640. Here’s Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 & Part 4.

This is the greatest radio theme song ever.

Here’s the original Timmy Time Song.

The Bodysnatchers‘ ska cover of “Too Experienced” is very pretty.

A wubbaddidaw.

Saturday Matinee – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Amy Winehouse and The Contours

Saturday, 13 February 2016

The Ghost of Sam Cooke lives, and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats prove it. Let the good times roll.

The late Amy Winehouse did an interesting cover of Sam Cooke’s “Cupid.” What a talented mess she was.

The Contours knew how to dance a love song.

That’ll do it for a St. Valentine’s Day Eve edition of the Saturday Matinee. See you back here tomorrow, lovers.

The .Gif Friday Post No. 424 – Hillary, Bernie, Donald & Ted and Obama

Hillary I DunnoBernie HeadTrump FaceCruz vs. Grampa Munster

Don’t read too much into this as I’m just messing around with JASC for the helluvit. Meanwhile a little birdy from Los Angeles sent me the following:

So it’s 2:15.  The Obama street closures are about to begin, and the airport traffic is expected to be a mess. Should I take the 10 East to the 710 south?

HELL NO. The manic motorhead doesn’t do tens. He does elevens.  I’m gonna drive it right down the fetid bloody gaping maw of the 405 South like a boss.

Ignoring the voice of the Waze app bitch, I jam down Centinela past National, past the 90, past Jefferson. I break into the 405 from Howard Hughes Parkway and head for LAX, to face almost certain death.

“Seems the flow is more sluggish than usual,” I think, “but it’s moving.” Then suddenly I see brake lights that stretch from here to San Ysidro. That’s when I make my move. Time for Exit 46.

TO IMPERIAL HIGHWAY – AND BEYOND!  *wooooosh*

Everything is going as planned. A mile down the road I jump the unsuspecting 105 East, run the Crenshaw exit lane to the end and merge like a pro. The Gods are surely smiling as I peel off to the Harbor Freeway South, but the patterns aren’t right… something is amiss.  Better exit 190th Street for good luck.

Sure enough, the 110 is at a standstill at the 405 interchange. My catlike instincts pay off again as I kick it down Figueroa to the next on ramp and hit it down the Weigh Station Only lane (merge) down the Avalon Boulevard exit only lane (merge) and then suffer a half-mile of stupid until I can veer into the Wilmington on ramp lane. From there it’s a cool breeze. Snaking on and off the 405 exits and entries, I bypass miles of suffering fools moving at 15 mph all the way to Long Beach. To them, I’m an unidentifiable blur of 99/100% pure awesome.

My journey takes less than 90 minutes. Not bad, considering the brutal and bloody odds stacked against me. Now it’s Miller Time, and I tip one to the poor bastards who don’t know the method of the madness. I pity them. I really do.

The Saturday Matinee – Mississippi Fred McDowell, Roscoe Holcomb & The Dixie Hummingbirds

Saturday, 6 February 2016

Mississippi Fred McDowell‘s version of Bukka White‘s “Shake ‘Em On Down.” (This version is hot, too.)

Roscoe Holcomb plays “Graveyard Blues.” Pure Appalachian finger style guitar. So where can we go from here? Oh wait. I know.

The Dixie Hummingbirds are one of the greatest soul Gospel groups ever, with a track record dating to 1928. We’re all on God’s Radar whether you accept it or not, and that’s a wrap for this edition of the Saturday Matinee.
