Global Whooping & Godzilla

Sorry, folks, I can’t believe that the timing of the latest Global Whooping Hype is accidental, especially given this.

Saturday Matinee – Mock Lobster, Mountain Of Dinosaurs & Spirit Family Revival

Saturday, 10 May 2014

Mock Lobster by the Bit52s is very cool [via].

Mountain of Dinosaurs [Rasa Strautmane, USSR 1967] was an anti-soviet propaganda film. Watch it for the nuances before you read the following.

The short warns about what happens if powerful stewards meant to care for individuals actually stifle those they are charged to protect. Dinosaurs didn’t die because of climate change, the short says, but because their eggs became so thick-shelled in response to colder temperatures that the baby dinosaurs couldn’t hatch. The shells (yes, the eggshells speak) mindlessly drone that they are doing their “duty,” but by growing thicker and thicker they kill the nascent sauropods. The scene is the saddest dinosaur cartoon I’ve ever seen, and it seems to be a metaphor for the Soviet government suppressing the rights of individual citizens. Indeed, the death of dinosaurs was not only used by Americans to issue dire warnings — they are an international symbol of extinction.

Heavy stuff is neither to be ignored nor swept under the rug, IMO.

So let’s lighten it up a tad instead.

The Spirit Family Reunion plays “Come On/Anna” in a bus. Nice roadtrip music, even if they play it at 11.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be sure to hug your mother on Sunday.

Axe Cop! I’ve seen better and this one is the most accurate. More links here.

Rube Goldberg Dog Machine  is awesome. [via]

Lake Street Dive = Street soul on the street with soul.  [via]

Great RetroSoul. See you tomorrow, have a great weekend, folks, and please stay clear of the IdiotMobs. No goodwill is intended, and no good will come from it. Be safe.

Easter Peep or Chupacabra – You Be The Judge

Thursday, 5 April 2012

There are three peeps in that little nest on top of our patio speaker, but only one was willing to pose for Bunkarina’s camera. The nest is about 4-inches wide, and it’s covered in some kind of finch poop.

The parents are slim grayish brown sparrow-sized, the female has a rust-red breast, and the cat hates them because cats hate everything except for the wet food. Jerk.

I try to find words to describe stuff like this.
I really do.
But sometimes I just give up.
Like now.
