Human produced CO2 is responsible for everything. Lol.

Interesting concept: an online collaborative to write stories with multiple authors in real time.

How to make a very cool simple electric train.

Fun facts to know and tell:

Bears’ closest living relatives are pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses).

Pinnipeds’ closest living relatives are bears and musteloids (skunks, weasels and raccoons).

The German word for “raccoon” is Waschbär, which translates literally to “Wash Bear.”

Here’s a naked bear. Here’s a naked raccoon.

Big Chief Buffalo Nickel.

Why is The Parkside Inn Motel (Bundoora, Australia) ranked No.1? Because there’s no No. 2. Interesting reviews. [via]

This is possibly The Greatest DooWop song ever recorded, by The Channels.

P.S. We get notifications of new followers from time to time, and we like to see who you are, so we stop by your blogs out of curiosity. Our readers are an eclectic mix of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities. We’ve known this for years, courtesy of WordPress, RevolverMaps and other sources.

That said, here’s the website of a recent follower, both disturbing and fascinating at the same time. NSFK except as a warning to those who choose to tread a similar path.

The Saturday Matinee – ANIJAM, Tommy Pederson & Frank Leightner, John Prine & Iris Dement

Saturday, 8 November 2014

Anijam” was a 1984 animation experiment created by Marv Newland, and appeared in the movie/video series “Animation Celebration.” No plot, just an exercise in surreal animation focused on an odd character named “Foska.” (Watch for some early computer animation sequences.)

ANIJAM was created by 22 animators, each doing a different sequence. The first drawing of each sequence is the last drawing of the previous sequence. The animators did not know what action came before, or went after their own sequence. The animators were free to create any animation that they wished. They were required to begin and end their sequence with Foska.”

So where do we go after that level of bizarre? How ’bout this:

The Flight of The Bumble Bee” [ca. 1900] on trombone is VERY tough to do. I could barely double-tongue on trumpet (dugga-dugga), or triple-tongue (dugga-ta-dugga-ta-dugga) but that guy was quadruple tonguing (dugga-dugga-dugga-dugga) on a trombone at high speed. Spike Jones’ band was awesome.

John Prine & Iris Dement at Sessions at West 54th (full concert) February 2014 [via]. The only thing I have against John Prine is/are his forced rhymes, but his voice and songwriting makes up for it. After all, it’s a Big ‘Ol Goofy World.

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

The Best VW Repair Manual Ever: “How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot”

VW CUTAWAY
This predates the “For Dummies” books, and although it focuses on VWs, it’s also a primer on how all the systems in a gasoline-powered car work, how to maintain them, how to diagnose trouble and how to fix it.  It’s written as if your Uncle Joe was coaching you, and the diagrams (and comics) are hand-drawn in Robert Crumb style. I learned a lot from it when I was in my 20s, and the book is still in print via Amazon here.

Even if you don’t own an old VW, get a copy and read it just for fun, enjoy the illustrations, and pass it on to your favorite teenage greasemonkey like I did. (It’s the perfect Christmas gift for someone with a VW, an adjustable wrench, a hammer and a couple of screwdrivers.)

Oh, and click on the image to see the big picture.
