28 minutes and one second of the Late Pecker Dunne.
That should keep your mojo going for a while.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.
I’m guessing they’re wooden, and some appear to be from the 1920s, perhaps earlier.
I don’t know a lot about hats, except that early makers of felt hats used mercury in the process, and the accumulation of that metal in their systems eventually affected their mental stability, resulting in the phrase “Mad as a hatter.”
Originally, cowboy hats and others were functional rather than a fashion statement. Brims were flat, designed to shade the sun and drain the rain, but once movies came about, the sides of the brims were turned up to show the actor’s faces. I suppose the crease in the top kept water from flowing off the sides and toward the back.

Philadelphia firefighters work the scene of an overnight blaze in west Philadelphia on February 16, as icicles hang from where the water from their hoses froze. Bone-chilling, single digit temperatures have gripped the region, prompting the closure of all parish and regional Catholic elementary schools in the city of Philadelphia.
Ice encases a traffic light and two fire fighting ladders, formed from water used to fight a fire, near the scene of an overnight blaze in west Philadelphia on February 16.
Vehicles and a building are covered with ice as firefighters worked to keep a warehouse fire down in the Brooklyn borough of New York on February 1.
Beacon Street in Boston on February 16.

Take a guess as to what it was – the answer’s below the break. (more…)
The Cleverlys are pure country, and their take on The Bangles’ 1985 hit is pure awesome.
Let’s move on to something entirely different. How ’bout some Magic Sam?
Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow and maybe we’ll discuss the many ways to secretly deflate footballs and turn them into a national crisis.
