Cookin’ With Aunt Ethel” as sung by Linda Hopkins is great and bizarre at the same time. Apparently it’s from a 1985 satirical play entitled “The Colored Museum.”

Google “City of Woodland Hills Trash Enclosure Requirements” and check out the image results.

Oh. Canada.

2014 Russia Olympics

How to make a wooden Viking beer mug with a hatchet and a knife. I’d use the rawhide method.

Better yet – how to scout and set up a whiskey still in the hills of Appalachia. The late Popcorn Sutton is his own live narrator on this 96 minute video, entitled, “This Is The Last Damn Likker Run I’ll Ever Make.” Take the time to watch it.

Escape from the kitchen.

Interesting story about President Herbert Hoover and Jan Paderewski. Turns out to be true.

Never heard that story, and my first reaction was that it was Urban Myth. $2,000 in 1892 dollars could purchase a spacious two-story home with multiple fireplaces. That seemed to be an extravagant fee, even for a popular piano virtuoso. It’s about $50K in 2013 dollars. That young Hoover could have raised $1,600 (+$40K / 2013) in a short amount of time is just as astounding.  But it appears the story is true.

Great cartooning with amazing .gif animations by Neil Sanders.

“The transistor was probably the most important invention of the 20th Century, and the story behind the invention is one of clashing egos and top secret research.” True.
