Two-Faced Four-Eyed Hot Links

Saturday, 3 October 2015

NOT Photoshop
Bear. Stop it. Stop it, Bear. Why are you breaking my kayak? Bear doesn’t speak English. Someone needs to add an instrumental background soundtrack with a heavy walking bass line to this.

This is so wrong. Chuck Berry sings Death Metal.

Regis Philbin and Cathy Lee interview The Ramones [1988].

The Failure Players.

Charles Schulz disliked the name “Peanuts”.

Interesting graph.

Nice catch… using Barbie Gear.

Saturday Matinee – Solar System Scale Model, Bonya & Kuzmich, & Billy Woodward

Saturday, 26 September 2015

Building a scale model of our solar system [via]. Were the Earth the size of a marble, take a guess as to how big this model was.
(Hint: Bigger than that.)

Not sure what to make of this, but it kept my attention. It’s titled “Kiesza – Hideaway (Bonya & Kuzmich Russian parody).” I don’t know who Kieza is, but I’m not impressed and don’t care much either. [Found here.]

Since our Saturday Matinee Post is typically eclectic, let’s shift gears.

Billy Woodward is an anomaly – part country, part country blues, part rockabilly. Although I was looking for a video of another song (I Got Bit) this’ll do.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more stuff.

Saturday Matinee – The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic & Blind Faith

Saturday, 19 September 2015

In 1965, The Spencer Davis Group rocked.

In 1967, Traffic rocked.

In 1969, Blind Faith rocked.

30 or so years later, and Steve Winwood still rocks.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow, Winwood or not.


Saturday Matinee – Puddles The Clown, Jim Stafford & Jimmer Podrasky

Saturday, 12 September 2015

Pinball Folsom Wizard Prison Blues.
Excellent performance by Puddles The Clown.

Jim Stafford was rated, both under and over, for obvious reasons.

By the way, how ’bout a crappy but excellent video of The Rave-Ups featuring frontman Jimmer Podrasky?

The Rave-Ups were underrated IMO, but they got some traction for their work in a B-minus movie, Pretty In Pink, and In My Gremlin is my favorite Rave-Ups song, also for obvious reasons.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for Armageddon.

Saturday Matinee – Best Coast, The Ray Beats & Bishop Bullwinkle

Saturday, 5 September 2015

So I axed Bunkessa about the song she played last weekend on our patio hi-fi. She said it was “Our Deal” by Best Coast, a Beach Goth band from L.A. Never heard of the group nor the genre, but so what. I like the retro sound. [The video accompaniment is a Cliff’s Notes mime version of West Side Story.]

Okay, so what to post next? Let’s keep the retro thang going.

The Ray Beats were kinda Chantays, kinda Ventures, kinda Dick Dale and kinda NY punk in the late 70s/early 80s.  In other words, kinda young, kinda wow.

Here’s another talent who dodged my radar: Bishop Bullwinkle and “Hell 2 Da Naw Naw.” Apparently it went viral in August and I’m late to the party [via]. Dude’s got a great message.

Have a great weekend folks. See you back here tomorrow, even if you’re headed out on a 3-day family road trip to See Ruby Falls.

Saturday Matinee – The Green Beret, Butane James & The Flames, & The Shadows

Saturday, 29 August 2015

Odd scary animation. I love it.

Hardest Working Knees In Show Business.
(This one goes out to you, Calo. Chin up always.)

The Shadows were smokin’ on Lawrence Welk circa 1960.

Have a great weekend, folks. Remember to leave the seat up after you’re done peeing on it and always flush with your feet. All you guys, please do the same, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – (Hg(SCN)2) Decomposition, The Electric Prunes, The Count Five & The Seeds

Saturday, 22 August 2015

Mercury(II) thiocyanate decomposition is kinda cool, but some of the U Toobage comments amused me more (posted verbatim):

Imagine a 50 tons asteroid made of this thing … it would enter the atmosphere, get in flame, expand like the whole africa and kill us

This was filmed in a North Korean secret science lab where they are trying to build their next president.
How cool would it be to pretend to be a wizard in the medieval ages, just go into a kings throne room and threaten them by summoning satans dick tentacles, pop this experiment down, and as everyone is screaming, command the dick tentacles to stop, and then they all be like. Oh you so great wizard telling satans dick tentacles to stop, and then you would be like muahahah – ill stop, and yes, there is something wrong with me.
Why is he using a little tiny golf club to put down the powder?
Why did watching this bring Hillary to mind ?
and that’s how they grow kale! now you know

i’d smoke that

poke it with a stick…

BTW, the word is spelled “Weirdest.” I before E except after W…

Okay. Enough of that, so let’s go eclectic. How ’bout some 1966 retro?

Here’s The Electric Prunes on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, circa 1966, lip-synching “I Had Too Much To Dream.”

“Psychotic Reaction” by The Count Five, circa 1966.

The Seeds‘ “Pushin’ Too Hard” circa 1966.

For me, 1966 was a great year because I got a small transistor radio for my birthday. It ate up my allowance money in batteries because I’d fall asleep listening to WSAI into the wee hours on school nights.  It was also the year Dad ordered a complete set of the World Book Encyclopedia. That was the edition that had frog dissections and human anatomy on overlapping clear celluloid layers. Very cool.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for stuff.

The Saturday Matinee – To All The U.S. Cubano Families Who Just Got Chumped

Saturday, 15 August 2015

Yep. The American Flag now flies over the U.S. Embassy in a country dedicated to the abolishment of the one form of government that is guaranteed to bring its denizens out of poverty, i.e., capitalism.

I pity those who think that capitalism is a bad thing, for they’ve been deceived and lied to, and the people who suffered under Castro’s brutal and oppressive regime are unable to speak.

Except for a very few, and I’ve met some of them. They’re not happy about this at all because they remember what happened to themselves and their families when the communists took over.

So where do we go from here?


The Cuban sound is a mixture of Spanish, African and European styles, an eclectic mix that blends well. Meanwhile, here’s another great Cuban:

Steven Stills & Manassas. Stills wanted to become one of The Monkees prior to his days with CSN&Y, but he was rejected for contract conflicts. It probably had something to do with being a Cuban, like this orchestra:

In case you didn’t click the link last time around, that’s Prague’s Talichova Komorní Filharmonie in 2012 performing a classic song by the late Cuban composer Frank Zappa.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

Hot Links En Regalia

Sunday, 9 August 2015

Fred Johnson Marcels Blue Moon


How to handle job interviews like a pro.

More stuff about knots than what you learned in Boy Scouts. I can’t tell if this is brilliance, a spoof, or if someone in the UC Santa Barbara math department has gone scooters.

A Sloth Awakes [via]. I pray that someone called the police.

Top 5 Grammar Rules Not To Break [via]. Like, ya.


Frank Zappa’s classic “Peaches en Regalia” played by Talichova Komorní Filharmonie during the 2012 edition of Golden Prague International Television Festival.

The Magnus Effect. It’s more than just for sports [via].

Saturday, 8 August 2015

Mott The Hoople, 1973.

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, 1973.

Rory Gallagher, 1979.

Yeah I was on a 70’s rock vibe tonight. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow. –Bunk
