Rowan Atkinson plays air drums with brilliance.
During the summer of 2013, Fish was called up on stage to play with a skeptical Buddy Guy who was so impressed with her playing on the guitar, he declared with a beaming smile to his audience, “When this kind of shit happens, I’ll play all night!”
Have a great weekend and we’ll roll again tomorrow.
It’s so hot, I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking. It’s so hot, I saw two fire hydrants fighting over a dog. It’s so hot, the potholes in were filling themselves with asphaltic runoff. It’s so hot, kids are carving their initials in train tracks – with bamboo. It’s so hot, my eyeglasses updated my prescription. It’s so hot, the incandescent bulbs feel cool to the touch. It’s so hot, the sidewalks are on strike and demanding more eggs. It’s so hot, I didn’t have to trim my nose hair. It’s so hot, we had to fire up the grill just to cool the patio.
It’s still hot.
Dangerous. Use only under adult supervision.
Reminds me of a bar prank from years ago. Light a cigarette, snuff it out in a puddle of candle wax, then put it back in the pack for later. When the time is right, pull out the wax-butt, fire it up, and pretend that you don’t know that it’s flaming like a tiki torch. Wave it around while telling a pointless story, but don’t set your hair on fire (or anything else for that matter).

Saturday Matinee – Animals & Mirrors, The Doghouse, The Greg Johnson Set & The Fabulous ThunderbirdsSaturday, 6 June 2015
Animals and mirrors [via].
Beware of The Doghouse. Been there. I overlooked the first Valentine’s Day post-marriage as I considered it to be a dating holiday. I ate damp corrugated cardboard for months [via].
The Greg Johnson Set is a band from New Zealand, sounds like a traditional Irish band, performs “People Can’t Talk In This Town” from 1992. Somehow the concept of Freedom of Speech is being quietly vanquished [via].
Lets lighten it up a tad. How ’bout some great rippin’ by Jimmie Vaughan with The Fabulous Thunderbirds?
Have a great weekend. Be back here tomorrow for more powerful stuff.
Saturday Matinee – Pushing Hay, The Ballad of Holland Island House & The Tom Stormy Trio featuring Rhythm SophieSaturday, 4 April 2015
Pushing hay [via]. Makes me itchy just watching it.
“The Ballad of Holland House” is based upon a true story.
Holland Island sits in Chesapeake Bay, near Wenona, Maryland. The five-mile-long island was settled in the 1600s, and at one time had a population of 360 people and 70 buildings. Erosion ate away at the island, which sat on silt and clay, and the residents moved away between 1914 and 1918. The island’s church was moved in 1922, and only one house remained standing. It was built in 1888. For decades, the water ate away at the island, and the last remaining house finally collapsed in October of 2010. What’s left of the island is now a marsh, home to hundreds of sea birds. See pictures of the island and the house -and the cemetery- at the Baltimore Sun [via].
How ’bout some retro rockabilly from Budapest?
Have a great Passover / Easter, folks.
Interesting artsy spilly painty project [via].
Awesome slide by Jack Broadbent on the streets of Amsterdam in 2014 with a cover of Canned Heat’s “On The Road Again.”
“On The Road Again” was penned by the late Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson and Floyd Jones. Wilson died of a barbiturate overdose in 1970 at the age of 27, within a few weeks of the similar drug-related deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. So what about Floyd Jones? Let’s hear him.
Here’s Floyd Jones‘ “Stockyard Blues” with his own commentary.
Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.
