Insta-Tan

According to some venues these days, everyone hates being born white, so here’s the solution. Flick the Zippo, fire up the burner, and whammo.
Instant tan. Guaranteed to turn your hair black, too.

Grammar Crackers.

On 6 September 2013, NASA unintentionally launched a frog. True.

Kiwis replumb a friend’s house with beer. Pure awesome prank, even though it was promoted by these guys.

Some folks on Reddit liked our 2009 post on the timeless brilliance of Milton Friedman.

The Grimm Brothers. Nasty stories.

This Lady looks familiar.

Saturday Matinee – Kaitlin Heller, Ike Willis with Sara Zimmerman & Johnny Winter

Saturday, 21 September 2013

The viral Twerking Fail video, uncut. Jimmy Kimmel & stuntwoman Kaitlin Heller chumped the MSM.

Ike Willis‘s version of Zappa’s “Suicide Chump” with Sarah Zimmerman. Most of her stuff is acoustic, but she’s no slouch on electric slide guitar. The last line in the song is “All you can say as you run down the street is:” and Willis cuts it off. In Zappa’s version, it transmogrifies into “Jumbo Go Away.”

Let’s get back to the slide.

Johnny Winter‘s “Mean Town Blues” from 1970, and no, that’s not a cover – he wrote it. Awesome Texas boogie in the style of John Lee Hooker.

That’s it for this edition of The Saturday Matinee. Rock on.

Saturday Matinee – Lovin’ Spoonful, Temptations & WSS

Saturday, 31 August 2013

Kinda hot here the past few days, and with some unusual humidity for Bunkville, I had to turn off the a/c occasionally on a 2-hour commute just to let it de-ice. While we’re waiting for Dear President to start pushing the Affordable Air Conditioning Act, let’s spin some tunes that are too hot to handle and too cold to hold on The Saturday Matinee.

The Lovin’ Spoonful in September 1966. A few years after that song came out I discovered that John Sebastian wasn’t black, yet he had soul.

The Temptations were great, and this is one of their greatest: “I Wish It Would Rain.” According to Wiki, it was originally released as a B side to a Melvin Franklin song on Motown Records in 1967 and made it to No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 100 the following year. [The songwriter, Roger Penzabene, was distraught after finding that his wife had been cheating on him and offed himself a week after the song's release.]

Let’s cool off with this classic. It’s got subtitles, too.

Yep, real cool, except for the pirouettes. Have a great 3-day weekend, folks.
